Lightweight and low bandwidth is always ideal, the ease of receiving by email is not to be dismissed.  I expressed the issues I find with email vs forum.  I learned some interesting things from the discussion.  

If email is preferred so be it, any single location is better than ending up with multiple.

I would still like to help.  What can I do to help with the site?
  I wouldn't mind adding some info on the projects I've done over the past couple months.  I have a lot of photos.

I'm delighted to hear you say that. Low bandwidth usage has been one of 
my design goals from the beginning, and is part of the reason the 
website looks "dated" to some. (Another part is my limited skills at 
visual design.) I'm glad that my attention to low bandwidth is appreciated.
