The all important Home Page

Yesterday Edson Buchanan…. told me about something important that I need to add to my blog.  That item is a Home Page option.

So, what is a Home Page?   Simple really.  Like the name implies, this page contains all the options that your reader needs in order to navigate around your site.  It contains everything you want your reader to have access to.  And, it’s very important that people are able to navigate back to this page when searching around on your blog.

 A “Home Page” option needs to be placed on your sidebar…in Edson’s case he has placed it under the title “Main Menu.”   If someone is reading on your blog and navigates to another page within your blog you want to make it very easy for them to navigate back to your home page.  It’s that simple.  But. this little tool could make a difference between someone leaving your blog accidentally (or on purpose) or staying on it.

It’s all about the tools.  Use them wisely.  Keep it simple and make it easy for your readers.

Once again, this will seem pretty elementary to the seasoned pros, but to the newbies it is very important information which will help them to be successful.  That’s what this blog is all about. 

Make it easy for anyone who lands on your blog to navigate around your blog without loosing them…and a Home Page option is a must.

It will be added to my blog soon…;)

To your success…and mine,

Kathy

New Header and Footer

One thing for sure…I’ve given my blog the correct name.  It has been nothing but adventurous this morning trying to correct some problems with my blog header showing up correctly on aol and other issues with my host email etc…now, I have brain drain..;)  Ok, more lessons learned.

Hope everyone likes my new header and footer.  There is a special meaning behind that beautiful rose that is displayed in the left corner.

Soon, I’ll share the story with you.

Have a wonderful day,

Kathy

A Revelation

Eureka!  I made my first dollar via Internet Marketing yesterday.  I joined ChattoText and someone that I had sent the link to joined…and the best part about it is they sent it out to their “list” of 50 people (which is actually bigger than mine.)  I have already gotten word…and, another 25 cents that someone joined out of that 50.  Wonder how many they will send it out to?

I gotta tell you it was a real rush to see that money in my account!

As promised I printed it out and will frame it…:)

Yesterday I had a revelation about this program I’d like to share with all of you.  What if everyone that all of us sent this program to only “saw” the business opportunity, the financial gain that could be produced from a mere $6 investment?

I don’t use the service, and at present I don’t care about the service, but I do care about what this program can do for me financially.

I am promoting the business opportunity first.  The problem arises when you promote the product first….everyone gets stuck there…they don’t see the business opportunity. Fear gets in the way.  I want people to  “see” the financial possibilities the Universe has placed within their hands first.  The product/service itself is the icing on the cake.  And, don’t forget, you can cancel out of the program at any time.  So, essentially the most anyone stands to loose is $6….and that’s only if they don’t get anyone aboard.

Do you see the possibilities?

When I promote ChattoText, I stress the possible financial gain…..

for everyone willing to part with $6.

It’s another stream of income…and, you can’t have too many of those.

You cannot get rich doing nothing.  Even those that win lotteries had to buy tickets.  That’s action my friends.  You must meet the Universe half way.  SEE the possibilities, take ACTION, reap the rewards….

and, quit dreaming.

The Universe is waiting to reward you.

Wishing you clarity of mind…,

Kathy

Remember you can get to the site from my blog…just scroll up on the dark blue sidebar until you see “Recommended.”  Click on “A New Texting Application”…which I need to change to “An Awesome Business Opportunity.”..;)

Learning curve….

Wow, what a busy morning!  But, let’s back up to yesterday morning first.

I thought I would go into my “About” page and post a thumbnail pic of myself and a little about who I am…just for those that might be curious.

Well, I managed to upload the photo, but I didn’t like the way it looked so I deleted it.  But, I guess I didn’t pay enough attention to what I was deleting because when I pulled up my blog the “About” page was missing altogether on the sidebar!  Yikes.  I tried everything I knew to get it back up with no luck.  In fact, I ended up doing some other things that I didn’t want to do by mistake.  Amazingly enough I managed to get those things fixed, but still no luck getting that “About” page back on my sidebar.

Now, I knew there was a way to add new pages, catagories etc. because I have viewed many WordPress blogs and their sidebars were very customized.  So, I wasn’t panicking, but my perfectionist self sure wanted it back that morning….:)  It was a test for my patience for sure.

This morning Edson Buchanan and I connected via Yahoo chat and he told me what to do.  I needed to go to D9 hosting under my account and ask them to back my blog up to the day before yesterday.  I just love this guy…he’s so helpful in every way.  Anyway, off I went to D9 hosting and opened a live chat with the technical dept.  Spoke with Dan and he told me that it might not work if it had already been backed up after I did it…which it was.  So, he said we could go back to the weekly backup…that did the trick.  My “About” option was back on my sidebar but I lost my last two posts.  Fortunate for me, I had copied these posts and I was able to go back in this morning and repost them.  The only difference is that they now appear with today’s date instead of the date I had written them earlier this week.  No problem…I was relieved to have my blog look like it did before I messed up.

One thing for sure, I’ll be alot more careful before I delete something!  Lesson learned.  It’s all part of the process though and I am sure there will be many more “mess-ups” while in my learning curve….and beyond, as the internet is constantly changing.  We must grow as it grows or we’ll be left behind.

I am sure there are alot of very good hosting sites out there but I am grateful to John Thornhill that he led us to D9.  Their live chat was awesome and the problem was fixed within a few minutes.  Now, that’s good service.  Kudos to D9.

Gotta run…lots to accomplish today.

enJOY….

Spam….or not….

Good Glorious Morning!

I really love mornings.  It pretty much doesn’t matter what state I was in when I went to bed….when the new day announces itself on the horizon, my slate is clean and ready to be filled with new adventures, new discoveries and most importantly OPPORTUNITIES.  I really love life.

I wasn’t going to write this morning. not for lack of something to say, but because I was short on time.

Then I checked into my dashboard.  Surprise, surprise, I received my first comment.  But wait, it ended up in my spam folder!  Of course I had to check it out.  Someone wrote and told me they liked my writing style and that they were looking forward to reading more from me.  Why is this spam…I thought?  Maybe he is known for doing this.  Time to research.  Sure enough, this person likes to leave that same comment all over the internet on different blogs.  Nothing genuine about that comment!  Akismet is the spam filter that WordPress uses and I am going to have to have more faith in it.  No doubt there are a lot of legitimate spammers out there just waiting in the weeds to clog your blog.  I wonder how these spammers find us so early on??  I am sure they target the new bloggers as any seasoned blogger would probably not have given it a second glance.  But, he accomplished what he set out to do as I was curious and clicked on his site.  I am sure that was his intention in the first place.  To get that “click” that the search engines like.  But, thankfully they are getting wise too.

But it was a first!  There is always something special about “that first” in anything…and, for me, this wasn’t any different.

Anyway, for what it’s worth it gave me that little boost of confidence that we all need on occasion….even if it was short lived…;)

My heart is the driving force behind everything I write and post here…and nothing is more important to me than that my readers “feel” my heart when they read.  I have spent 30 plus years studying in the Metaphysical field and although this blog is primarily about Internet Marketing, my passion for Universal Law and Principals naturally finds its way into my posts.

Universal Law and Principals will be the guidepost for all my marketing ventures.  It couldn’t be any other way.  It is who I AM.

Go enJOY your day.  Accept the “present” moment as the gift that it is…..and feel your connection to everything the Universe brings to you for discovery today.
