Final week {B250}

I am getting excited.  It has been a rough few weeks.  But my website is almost ready and I only need to do a few things.  I have a blog for my stuff at  It tells me not to use separate blogs for it.  So I will need to incorporate it into my website.  That is a pain in the bum, I just want to link it.  But I am told it is very good for business.  So take a look around my site and let me know what you think, what looks good and where I can improve.

Only two weeks left {B250}

Not that I haven't loved this class because I have.  I have had to step out of my comfort zone almost every week.  I have to deal with things I don't know anything about and learn things that I'm still learning.  I've had callers asking me for their business, no way, not yet. 

I am so excited for all my classes to be over truly because I miss my family.  I miss going to have lunch with them, or going on field trips.  Picking them up early because I miss them or having a clean house.  I miss going on vacation. 

So I'm excited to have this class over because it is one class closer to being done.  Fingers crossed I  will graduate end of spring semester 2018.

What have I learned this week?  Optimizing, still learning, I had a call from someone in Oregon and they talked me through a few things on my Adwords.  I was so grateful, sometimes I don't feel that I understand things and really don't know who to ask the questions to.  He gave me a walk through.  So I understand how to make an ad a bit better.  Also we talked about media networking and it is crazy, a bit scary, I am not a that even a word?  I understand the benefits but I wonder how much it would benefit my business.  I love Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest and with my business that would work great since Instagram works many aspects of media with one publish.  So I'm willing to try to get outside my comfort zone and try Twitter,  Lets see how this goes.

Two weeks, only two weeks and I can clean my house again and two weeks and I can sit outside and play in the garden and go have lunch with the kids and do nothing and take naps and relax before those two blessed weeks are over and I start this all again with another class.  Thankfully it will only be one and not three.

Here is a pic of my recent work.

Optimizing and backlink {B250}

Help...I do not understand!  I am doing the process but I do not get it.  I understand what it means to optimize but I am struggling with doing it and then I wonder if I understand it at all.  And backlink, I don't have any and what is that all about?  That I do not understand.  Grrr!  That is kinda how I am feeling.  Help me, will I get docked points if I don't understand?  Am I silly to not be understanding this, is this an easy thing and I am over thinking it.  So much, and in the end how do I make it work for my website in a positive manner?  So I still have a few things to add to my site before I let you all see it and every week I think I will have time and this week has been spring break and the kiddos were even gone for five days and I still didn't get to it, so now, I will just have to add those things whenever, my timeline for it is shot.  But it will get done, I do love it.  

Here is a lovely picture of food, this week is St. Patrick's Day and I made food for my in laws who had my kids and got sick as the days went on.  I made them Shepherds Pie.  {sorry that it is blurry, I have no idea why and Rob isn't here to fix it.}

Are you ready? Am I ready...{B250}


This week we continued to tweak our websites, ad words, campaigns, etc.  It's getting real.  I went live and I just don't feel ready.  I still feel I have a list of things to do.  But here it is, do I trust you all to give it out or should I wait til the end?...that is the question.  I think I am going to wait.  Just because there are some obvious things that are not ready and I don't need a bazillion comments about those things.  But here is something.  I am learning and getting excited and squeely like a girl and my dog doesn't like it.  I am down to the last stretch and I need to keep the momentum.  I only have one year over all and that is exciting.  I'll keep you posted.

On a different note, here is a pic for you, to remind you spring is around the corner, even for you all in Utah!
