British software company etribes has launched an online personal publishing and photo sharing service for adults who are ?too busy to blog?.

etribes (www.etribes.com) enables people to create their own website and update it regularly with news and photos. It is designed for adults with busy social lives who do not want the hassle and technical challenge of maintaining a blog, but who do want to be able to share news and photos easily with friends and family.

Simon Grice, founder of etribes, says there are millions of people in Britain who fall into this category. “There’s a lot of hype about blogging, but the truth is that most people aren’t ‘bloggers’ and don’t want to be,” he said. “However, our research shows that there are about five million adults in the UK who are interested in finding easier and more convenient ways of communicating with their ‘tribe’ of friends, family and associates.”

Key features of etribes include personal publishing and photo hosting all in one site and website templates with no adverts. The service costs £24 for a years? subscription for which users get a www.etribes.com/yourname web address to keep.
