How The Web Was Woven

Nearly three years ago The Official Elvis Presley Fan Club of Great Britain launched a website on the Internet. As some of you might remember, I wasn't overly impressed, among other things it was poorly updated.

Well, I'm happy to report that the British fan club has a new website up and running, one that is much more professional looking. Granted, the content is a bit limited: an on-line application form, latest news (not updated that often), some information about the travel club (which takes members to Memphis), an image gallery (containing about 25 photos of Elvis), a shop (including the Follow That Dream collector's label CD's and books) and a link to Radio Caroline where Todd Slaughter hosts an Elvis Hour once a week.

That said, the site is a major improvement over the old one, and certainly a step in the right direction. So is the fan club's decision to join Facebook. Unfortunately the same can't be said of FTD, their site is still "currently under construction" (as it was over two years ago).
