I've actually sold a few images lately, so I'm thinking it may be time to set up a website. Do any of you have recommendations for good Wordpress website designers? I also need to get a logo type watermark. How do you design these, and how the heck do you get them on your photos?

The watermark I (and many others) use is simply my name, copyright symbol, and website. If you had a branded personal logo you could add that, but it's not necessary. I use Lightroom as my photo editor and cataloging software and it has an easy way to non-destructively and automatically add watermarks and copyright metadata to images.

I use aperture. May be a good time to buy Lightroom.

You don't need to buy Lightroom. You can add a water mark in Aperture on export.

I use Zenfolio, you can use their watermark facility or import your own.

Have a look at my site as an example, great to use

Try Wix.com They make it very easy to set up websites from their templates and they have commerce templates too.
