A new blog for me

Yeah, just what I need – one more place to have to keep up with. LOL This one is intended for my side biz, for my jewelry.  Actually I already have a link to it here, except it used to be my e-commerce site.  I switched things around over the weekend, moved the e-commerce pages […]

Poor, neglected blog

Yeah, I know. I just haven’t been in the mood really to post anything, and other than my daughter splitting her head open on our dresser drawer handle last week and getting stitches, and my husband and my trip to Vegas for our anniversary, nothing really of note has been going on. Still clinging to […]

Living in the desert

We see these all over the place where I live. Short, tall, skinny, wide, no arms, dozens of arms… Did you know it is illegal do do any damage to these plants, even if you own one? You cannot just go out and dig one up out of the desert and plant it in your […]

Bring it on, 2009

Another year, come and gone.  They seem to be zipping by so fast now. It’s it funny how when you’re young, the year just seems to draaaaaag by, but the older you get, the faster it seems to pass? I really need to get my hiney in gear this year with a lot of stuff.  […]

Reconstruction complete

Whew.  That seemed to go off with only a minor hitch, which was easily corrected.  You probably may not notice much of a change from your perspective, but that is the way it should be.  All of the changes happened “behind the scenes”, so what I see when I work in the admin panel of […]

WordPress 2.7 is available – yay!

I’m giddy, but I can’t install it until I get home!!  Agh! Unfortunately I did not install it using my host’s autoinstaller, I installed it manually myself, so I have to download everything and unzip and back up stuff, blah blah, and then upload it to my host before I can try it out.  I’d […]

I think I’ll call it done

Whew.  That was a lot of hard work.  There are still some minor tweaks I need to add, and I need to fix my adsense widget, but I think this is good. I decided to make the links in the sidebar pink so they’ll stand out a bit more and they kind of go with […]

Making extra money

I will admit it – we are credit card junkies, although we have gotten better about how many cards we carry balances on.  But at the same time, I always find myself trying to figure out ways to make a little extra money on the side so we can start paying down those vicious balances […]

Requesting constructive criticism please

Ok, this is aimed more specifically at those jewelry makers who bounce past my site from Entrecard, but anyone can offer input if you wish. Please go to my jewelry e-commerce site, Positively Charming, look at my offerings, and provide your thoughts on what I have there. What is crap? What are my best pieces? […]

When leaving comments…

Just a quick FYI – when you leave comments and have multiple URL’s you want to leave, or any URL for that matter, within the comments (instead of linked to your name by the software), don’t forget to set them up so they convert to a URL with the HTML code:   <a href=”http://www.thisisyoursite.com/”>Visit my […]
