I’m learning/reading up on SEO and all that good stuff. I’m beginning to realize that to really do it properly… my webpages are going to look like crap. Sigh. It seems like you’d have to put so much information on your page. I’ve been looking at examples of sites that have been successful with using SEO techniques… and well… most of those sites look jam-packed with info!!

I’m a big fan of simple and clean. I like stuff streamlined. Hmmm… I better save up money for advertising. LOL

Just wanted to add where you can learn more about SEO. Lots and lots of good info. And alot of work if you want it done correctly.


I’m going to take a small break so I can concentrate on building an online site. I don’t post that much anyway so it won’t even seem like a break. LOL. There’s a few cool (& cheap :-D) places I’d like to try advertising with or promoting with… but it just seems like a waste of effort if they are retail customers and they can’t buy if they come to the website. So… taking matters in my own hands… not waiting on stores, not waiting on reps… I’ll just change my focus, and hope for the best.

Things in the greeting card business is slow and some things are up in the air. I worry when someone has my info and pdf catalog and then doesn’t get back to me unless I contact them. Are they competitors pretending to be a rep? Maybe I was too gullible… But I did ask for references. Ehhh I’d like to believe in the good of people and I’ll assume they are just putting stuff together to present. Hmmm… guess I’ll have to wait and see.

We’ve been back and well-rested from our little getaway to Nevada. We had a great time visiting with husband’s family but it sure is good to be back home. I was able to get about 8-9 hours of sleep most days (that includes a nap) but I still felt beat. Maybe it was the heat, altho the weather was pretty mild. Maybe it was the lack of humidity.

Everytime we go to the Vegas area, we always think… ‘damn, we can sell our house in CA and get one there and not have to work (for a while).’ But… my family and most our friends are here. Plus the weather is nicer in CA. The thought of financial freedom makes it sooo tempting. Sure we daydream about it, then when it does get hot and we walk out into a furnace of 105 degrees we’re brought back to reality.

From where we were, we can see the entire strip. It doesn’t translate well into pictures, but this is a partial view.
