Back From Surgery

Well here I am. Surgery is over and believe it or not, no pain at all. For that I am VERY thankful. I have to use crutches for at least two weeks and although that’s a bit cumbersome I manage well enough. It’s the, stay-in-bed-and-keep-your-leg-elevated that has me going CRAZY!-and wishing I had a lap top computer to make working on my web sites easier. (Ok, I admit. I do cheat a little during the day and make my way into our computer room for about twenty minutes to work on my sites but shsss, don’t tell!)

As some of you know, I launched my second web site for personalized baby gifts just before I was scheduled for surgery. The sooner I did the sooner I could start finding links for it. That, my friends, is a long process and one I don’t enjoy. Sometimes it takes an hour to find two links that don’t require a payment and hey, I’m small potatoes. I can’t afford all those fees. (Not many can.) So it’s off to finding free links and I’ve only just begun since I’m keeping myself in bed with my leg raised and I don’t have a lap top. But I did manage to get my Google sitemap placed on the new site and will have a new one for my first photo blanket site soon. I added a few more pages so thought I should update the sitemap.

And while I’m doing stuff for the baby gift website I continue to improve the old site. I get traffic, but I’d sure like to know how in the devil one obtains more than one or two sales a month. (Hey, I’m not complaining about having had sales. I’ve been very, very fortunate to have had any sales at all, but don’t let anyone tell you you’re going to build the site and make loads of money. It’s not going to happen, but I am optimistic enough to believe that if one remains slow and steady one day all the hard work will pay off.

So here’s to slow and steady. May it take me to new heights!
