Well hello and welcome to the premier of my blogging career, I've been told that it's the way to go, so I'm going...
I started to build my website to sell my jewellery, a simple idea but it seems to have snowballed into a mind numbing circle of checking keywords, gaining traffic and make more content on more pages... what happened to just selling a few pairs of earrings?
It seems that these days you can't just write what's in your head and hope people like it. You have to make sure certain words are in certain places for a certain number of times so I thought I'd write a blog where I could do what I wanted, write what I wanted and hopefully gain a few readers!
So this blog isn't to sell my little bits of precious jewellery, I'm kind of attached to them anyway - each of my carefully-nurtured-and-cajoled-into-being earrings is like a child to me so maybe I won't sell them at all, maybe I'll just get addicted to making webpages and blogs. I can fill my walls with my earrings - at least I won't have to decorate in the near future.
In fact writing that last paragraph has liberated me, I am now a blogger, not a salesperson. I don't have to worry about describing my children.. er .. earrings and putting a paltry price on them so they sell, I don't have to worry about keywords and metatags (not that I did anyway). I can make a heading that doesn't include the keyword and say to hell with it all.. I'm a blogger!
Tomorrow I'm going to stay with a friend overnight so it will be Sunday before I can blog again, I'll be stuck in a caravan overnight and it's going to be cold so I'm sure I'll have something to talk about!
See you then!
