They say that many successful Internet voyages begin with family and friends. You tell your circle, they tell theirs, they tell theirs and before you know it, you’ve got a great audience. I’m hoping my blog friends will tell their extended family and friends about, which I’ve just spent 3 days updating. It now has a shopping cart, a wedding section, and a streamlined frames section.

Please tell people about the site. It’s what I love doing. And I don’t know what better thing you can say about an income stream than that.

If you’re wondering why I redid the site this week, between 2 big vacations and while researching our book, it’s because I’ve taken an ad on a local deli’s paper placemats. There’s 800 placemats, I think, which should last Kugel’s Deli about 8 or 9 months. My ad is top and center, so should be very visible. I’m hoping to get real business from that investment. I’ve known all along that my site gets WONDERFUL SEO (search engine optimization) — that is, Google loves me. But the lack of constant ordering is because I don’t have what you expect at a commerce website: a shopping cart. Well, now I do. So with the site now at over 17,000 page views, I decided to add it and give myself a real chance at this.

I hope you’ll help me by simply telling people about

I still have much to add to the site — a greeting card section, for one — but I wanted to get what I’ve been working on the past year (the wedding section) online and also add the shopping cart. So stay tuned for more goodies in the months to come. And make sure to navigate all the pages/sections. There’s a handy-dandy nav bar on every page so you don’t get lost. Tell me what you think about the new and improved site!

Thanks for any publicity you can toss my way! Or feel free to order something… 🙂

New nav

Filed under: — by Dana Gillin @ 6:16 pm

So I just spent all afternoon not making invitations, as I probably should have, but instead updating with a new navigation structure that’s hopefully more user-friendly (not to mention more scalable as I continue to post the new projects I keep coming up with).

So check out the new digs and let me know if it’s as user-friendly as I think it is… Don’t be shy!
