The Start Of A New Business


When I first start my new little ventures I always turn to Vista print. No I am not plugging them, but living in Spain I found it so difficult to get things done quick. To get anything printed here took so much time and also it is so expensive getting business cards printed.

I have used VistaPrint for nearly 4 years now and they have helped me along the way with their different great offers. For the first time ever I had 200 postcards of my own photograph printed, and it was so easy to upload and
so cheap.

Whilst living in Spain I have helped numerous friends who wanted to start their
own business and needed business cards in a hurry - I just pointed them to VisaPrint website.

A few weeks ago I received fridge magnets with my logo on for my Spanish Boot Company
and I was thrilled. There are so many special offers with VistaPrint I can´t stop myself.

Please believe me when I say I am not selling this company, but I think they are brilliant
for a first time business.

I have spent the past 2 days reading The Affiliate Classroom
(February edition).

I found a lot of useful information on how affiliates work with
in Europe. I didn´t realize that the Scandinavians were the
highest country on internet shopping. It also mentioned that
trends usually start in the US and don´t reach our European
shores until 6 months to a year later.

What I didn´t know was that there are more people on the
internet in Europe than in the US. You learn something

What is a Pingoat


Found out it is a service that makes a PING or notifies a number of
services that keep track of my weblogs. It also publishes my weblogs
on other sites.


What I Learned This Morning

View from my window where I contantly look out to during the day.

This morning after 2 hours of mind muddling and 3 cups of strong coffee I finally got my google search bar into my blog - I must say I had a lot of help from my husband who did lose his rag a few times. I panic so much, I feel like a petrified rabbit stuck in the middle of the road hesitating all the time and clicking the wrong buttons. Anyway I have finally learnt how to do it, and also noticed after closeup confrontation with my husband he has about 3 days stubble - he needs a shave.

Next on the agenda is learning about Pingoat - what the hell is that?

The Day Has Come

Well today is the day when I have finally made the decision to learn
about affiliates and hopefully make some money working with SiteSell
and XSitePro.

I will start this vast learning curve this Monday and will write about the trials and tribulations of it all. I may need a punchbag on hand or take small breaks with my dogs for walks to clear my muddled brain. Believe me it takes a long time for things to sink in.

I am a virgin to the internet and KNOW NOTHING - I have a laptop and upto now have only been able to set up an ebay shop selling Spanish leather boots . This in itself took a long while, sometimes sorting stuff out in the early hours of the morning and having horrendous rows with my husband who does not have a lot of patience. Also I did manage to start a flickr account and am slowly teaching myself how to work a digital camera.

Anyway watch this space - I will be teaching myself and starting a
new life - SCARY.
