*brushes away dust. taps mic* Is this thing on? Is anyone here? CAN YOU HEAR ME? Oh..ok. Sorry for yelling, but I haven’t been around here in so long I just wanted to make sure everything was working ok. Things have been busy in the Jones household. Not chaotic, or hectic, just busy. I suppose I should clarify that though. I’ve been busy. Working on an entirely new website for Visual Luxe. And new services to offer on that website. And things other than blog design to sell on that website. Printables! I showed you guys a little sneak peak, which was the etsy site. I decided not to use Etsy. Their system is a little convoluted. Plus, these printables are going to be pretty inexpensive, and my profit margin goes waaay down when I have to pay a listing fee of $.20, then a percentage of the sale price, then also another percentage once Pay.Pal takes their cut. So, I’ll just sell from my own site 🙂 Besides the printables (which I am WAY more excited about than I probably should be), I will be offering:
- Transfer services, from Blogger to WordPress,
- Workshops on designing your own layout, and making changes to your blog on your own
- Web site design using WordPress. (if you didnt know, WordPress is the future! It’s not “just” for blogging!)
So, it’s all pretty exciting. But a LOT of work. That I’ve had to even recruit Byron (I mean, he IS a programmer after all!) into helping me with, as far as making the cart and checkout system work as it should. I want to give a sneak peek, but I want to keep that WOW factor there, so I’ll be patient!
All of this is working towards a plan of having Visual Luxe be able to be as self-sufficient as possible in the very near future. We’re going on vacation in January, and after that, we’re about 85% sure that we’ll probably, maybe, possibly going to start TTC. And if the next pregnancy goes like the last one, I’ll be near death for the first few months. Then I’ll be good for a while. Then if the birth goes like the last one….I’ll be in a walking coma until the baby can be convinced to sleep for more than 7 minutes at a time, so yeah…. I need to able to keep business going without being “so” hands on during those times.
But, anywho….nice talking to you guys, and I’ll try not to
pass off Wordless Wednesday for 3 weeks in a row like it’s really me blogging stay away so long again!
