Well, hello again from York. I was supposed to be resting all day – School Holidays have started and a Grandpa needs to recharge ready for the onslaught!
However, a Blogger has to be committed (according to Grandma that should have happened to me long ago!).
I’ve been wrestling with a new Theme, a different layout, and a Header Image.
Now I won’t say that “I’ve failed but it’s not my fault” or that “I’ve succeeded beyond my wildest dreams but am not saying that to brag”….. you may recognise those two particular phrases as part of the Internet Marketing scene….. But…..
See here – I tried to use this pic as part of my header – now, it looks minute here, but put it in the header and it’s HUGE! My logic has a hole in it somewhere…. I’ll find it yet!
As a result I can only claim to have had limited success.
Ok, I can hear you asking – “So, WHAT?” Well – – I’ve enlarged the font so that I can see what I’m typing, and I’ve tried out yet another theme.
The trouble with themes is that I see one I love, install it, but find it looks as plain as the last one because I still need to spend another 3 weeks customising it! It may well take you a lot less time, but I just get stuck, baffled and ready for a Cuppa, preferably with a Shortbread!
Now, whilst temporarily baffled, and taking that tea break, I checked on line to see if anyone had replied to my message from yesterday where I joined the site Streetlife.com and asked if there was anyone in my area interested in Internet Marketing.
No, not exactly – but because I used the “Earn From Home On The Internet” approach in my message I got some replies – from ladies wanting to learn how to do just that!
So this Blog is now even more crucial as I need to get it running with a Membership area, get that Rapid Mailer Autoresponder working, and revise that course I wrote on the basics of earning on line – then I can direct local interest to the site as well as from the World Wide Web, and maybe even get a social group going to give me that face to face contact with people – I really miss that after being a Hotel Owner and then a Shopkeeper.
Maybe that’s an idea you might want to follow up – I hope so, and then I won’t have blathered on for nothing!
Until next time then
