OK so yes I have had a year (maybe more) to get the online store up and running. I had some hurdles. Let’s just say I could have joined the US Olympic Hurdle Team (is that a real thing?) Regardless, I have had ample time and it took me even more time BUT it's "live"! Yes that's right, I turned on the online store on 12/01, just missed Cyber Monday. So let me list all of the things wrong with this picture:
Now on the bright side, there are so many hosting sites that basically build your site for you and have all of the important tools built in like integrated shipping, payment partners, taxes. All of the important pieces that I should have been paying closer attention to at my past job that would have made this adventure less complicated. So here is my shout out to Weebly for giving me the ability to "drag & drop", whoop-whoop holla!
I still have a lot of work to do on the site because I am always finding little things and because I just like to change things. So this will be a never ending project but I think that is the way it should be. Give customers something new and fresh all the time. Hmmm, maybe I should be an online store; I would love to be updated every few months. Focus Traci, back to the topic. I would love to get feedback, feedabck on the site and not on my needed updates. I am fairly certain that nobody reads my post but hey, I like to think that millions and billions and "gazillions" of people read this blog. So mom or sissy, let me know if you see anything on the site that can be improved or if you find a typo...UGH huge pet peeve...please let me know.
Seriously though, this is such an exciting adventure. Who will be the first person to purchase something (yes it’s 12/3 and I have not had a sale yet, I’ll cry tonight in my wine), where will that person be from, what will they buy. My stomach is in knots, fun-colorful-fashionably-knots, but knots still. So if anyone is reading this, STOP NOW and go buy something will ya ;-)
