Shawl Pins

Wire Wrapped Pendants


Knit and Crochet


Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Lately I've been working on my website in Kompozer. I really didn't like what templates and such my provider had and never realized how simple it was to do in WYSIWYG type application. Plus with Kompozer, it's open source and I can get a portable version that fits on my flash drive and take it with me anywhere which is kind of cool. I had Dave upload and make it live tonight and in the process he killed all of the images that I had for my blog template. So, back to basics until I find something else. The other was neat but it really was too busy for my liking anyway.

I think the Little G is going through a teething period right now, the past two nights he's been cranky and complaining of his teeth hurting in the back where his molars are. Luckily the motrin has been working at night and he's been sleeping okay. I still wish there was something more that could be given to him to help.

I've decided to start listing more of my pendants on Artfire. I listed three new ones there today. I have a pretty good assortment on etsy and sales and views have been extremely slow compared to the last 3 months. I know Artfire is new and views there for some are low but I figure I'll give it a little love and try to build up some stock and inventory there and see where it goes.

Website look fab! And I agree with you on the blog look - simple is better & easier to find what you want :)

Good choice. I've seen some blog sites that are so busy with too much going on, I soon become disoriented or distracted and just leave. Also it is strange how something in one format can change drastically when one tries to transfer the info over to another site, obviously they have different formatting and so all one's careful work is completely rearranged and most often not in a nice way ! Frustrating !

An Artfire shop is like everything else on the internet, it takes time and promotion to get people to know it's there. I haven't been promoting either my etsy or my artfire shops...maybe it's the summertime blahs or maybe I'm just getting burned out with all the hyping? But, yeah, a sale or two sure would be nice ! :D
