I Have a Thought/Question; Need Your Advice

 

Remember when I showed you some of my creations, like this example?  Well, I have a whole lot more than just this and the time has come to start selling some of them.  So I was thinking about doing it online but I’m not sure how I should approach it.

I was thinking about starting a new blog that is specifically for “my creations” and doing everything through PayPal.

I need some advice, anybody got some knowledge in this area?  Do you think they would sell?

I have them reasonably priced, I think, and would just do free shipping beings that they aren’t all that heavy and wouldn’t cost that much to ship.

Help!

Thanks!!

Love and hugs, 
Terri

 

 

My Friday Thoughts – Suggestions?

 

Alright my friends, here is what I have been thinking about concerning my blog for this year and I am needing your input/suggestions/opinions:

Since Stumbleupon has changed their format, I have lost a lot of my readership (over 80% to be exact) and I can’t figure out why.  I’m not doing anything different from what I was before.

The only conclusion that I can arrive at is that they want me to buy an upgrade because I was getting too many hits for free.

To be quite honest with you, before now I averaged approximately 1000 – 2000 hits a day from them alone.

Now I am lucky to get over 100 – 150.

If their rates were reasonable, I might have considered it but they don’t have a flat fee upgrade.  Instead they charge you per hit.  Sorry guys, it’s not that important to me to pay you like that nor could I afford it if I wanted to.  I am just about ready to stop posting there completely but will wait a while longer to see if it turns around.

I recently linked up to tumblr and have quickly seen a growing readership. 🙂

I try my best to offer a wide variety of content so that everybody can find something that appeals to them.  Is there anything you all would like to see me do more of, less of, change, etc?

How about my short stories?  I haven’t done any recently because they were not being read by that many people but if those of you who were reading them want me to, I will start doing more of them.

I would appreciate hearing anything that you have to say about it.

I also have been encouraged by several of my most supportive friends to pursue getting some of my children’s and inspirational story/poems published.  That is one goal that I have set for this year.  Anything helpful that you have to offer there would also be appreciated!

Love and blessings, Terri

Offering A Few Website Suggestions

Sometime when you are sitting around and surfing the web for something to read, I’d like to give you a few suggestions of sites to check out:

http://arjun1097.wordpress.com

Arjun writes a variety of things; poems, thoughts and stories.  I’ve been following one of his suspense stories he started and it is very good!

http://nightlysky.wordpress.com 

Randall writes primarily poetry but takes on some controversial subject matter.  I find his poems are excellent and thought provoking.

http://4valentines4words4poetryforyou.wordpress.com

Kevin has become a dear friend of mine through the blogosphere.  He writes some great poems too!  Kevin gave me the honor of writing one for me 🙂

http://charleslmashburn.wordpress.com

Charles is another cyber-friend.  He writes a variety of things as well; poetry, daily inspiration/thoughts, true life stories.  He inspires me and I love his wit.

http://chicpress.wordpress.com

Abi is my “adopted cyber-daughter” and has become very precious to me.  She writes poetry and short stories.  Very, very good and talented for her age.

Those are just a few to start with.  I may try to do this as a weekly/monthly thing and give you a few to check out each time.   I don’t want anyone to be offended if they don’t see their site listed here!!  I have way too many to put them all in one post 🙂  This was just a taste.  Otherwise it would be way, way too long and people wouldn’t read it, lol!

Peace,
Terri
