Seven Things About Myself. Hmm, my life is an open book, what don’t you know, lol!

1.  I am a Kentucky Hillbilly

2.  I am a Solitary Practitioner

3.  I am a Hereditary Witch. I was raised around a lot of Granny Magick in the Mountains of Kentucky.

4,  I long for the peaceful and quiet life of the Mountains again. It is just so peaceful and beautiful there. If you could see it, you would never want to leave it either.

5.  If I moved to the mountains, I would have to make sure they had the internet somewhere up there, lol! I could stand to part with my family and friends here.

6.  The WOTC is my baby. But as it has grew and gotten bigger, I now say, “The WOTC is yours, I am just the caretaker.” I sincerely hope you think of the WOTC as your home on the net. Because that is how I want you to think of it.

7.  And on a very personal note, I am recently separated from my husband and plan on divorcing. Am I sad, a little but it is something I should have done a long time ago. When the divorce is final, we are going to have one hell of a party! You are all invited!

Ok, Now Let’s Talk, lol!

I wasn’t going to waste writing three or four paragraphs and then they just disappear. That was what was happening yesterday. I was never so angry in my life. I was actually running early, in a good mood, sit down and nothing!!! What little posting (I think two or three posts) I got done, took about five minutes to posts. Then they would just disappear. I tried to tell you that I was going to do the daily posts at The Apothecary while it was working. I went to link and when I did the message just disappeared. I don’t know what is going on. I know this is about the second time this has happened.

I got bored with nothing to do and when over to Blogger to check that site out.  I actually got to playing and made a Witches Of The Craft over there. I was fuming, I tell you. I had it all laid out in my mind. I was going to combine the Apothecary with the WOTC. I had it planned were I could do my daily postings and then on the other side have our store. To me, at the time, it wasn’t a bad idea. I have played with Blogger’s design and the tools they offer are really pretty cool. I know they offer javascript and WordPress doesn’t.  JavaScript allows you to put on some really nice graphics and images. WordPress doesn’t allow it because they say javascript is too easy to put a virus in, which is bull. A smart hacker can put a virus in any script they want too, html, java, etc.

I am beginning to wonder if all of the problems we are experiencing is due to The Apothecary. Before we ever opened it, I went to the WordPress forums and asked them if you could sell on WordPress. Instead of answering the question like a human being, they deleted the post. I got to doing some research on the net about selling on WordPress since nobody here wanted to answer me. I ran across one or two articles that said you couldn’t. Then I ran across hundreds of articles that said you could. Come to find out, WordPress has a strict policy about selling merchandise on their site. It is a no, no! But they admit theirself, that is a site does daily postings then they can’t do a thing about them selling. I am beginning to wonder if the part about “they can’t do a thing about it” is a crock of crap. I read were individuals were pointing out certain sites selling. WordPress would respond, “Aren’t they doing daily postings?” Perhaps WordPress fixes it were you can’t do the daily postings, thus getting rid of that site.  Or perhaps they force, you out. Everything has run through my mind. I know at Blogger, they don’t mind if you sell. They are giving small business in Kentucky free sites to sell and promote their stores. That is a big deal on TV, Google and the KY government have agreed to give small businesses free websites for a year. It’s not a bad deal at all, I checked into it and after the year, you only pay a dollar a month for the site. I know it would cut down on some of our expenses greatly.

As far as The Apothecary goes, I don’t know what is wrong with the merchandise already on there. We have not sold anything at all. We have not made one cent off of it. Instead, it is starting to put us in the hole. We have people over there but they are enjoying the postings. Well that’s great but The Apothecary was suppose to be our way of raising  money were we wouldn’t have to ask for donations. Instead you will notice the donation button is back up on this site. I honestly don’t know if it is worth the effort anymore. I have seriously thought of moving it. Put it on a site were we could advertise it and then maybe it might make a dollar or two. Our expenses run us a total of $590.00 a month, might as well say $600.00. So you see that is why we need the donations. And I didn’t even mention the animal refuge. We use to like to donate to the local food pantries but that has had to cease. The economy just sucks for everyone right now. But that was the purpose of us opening The Apothecary, to make money were we could meet all of our obligations. And I wouldn’t have to continuously ask for donations or have a button on the site. That grips my rump, I feel like we are always begging. I hate that more than anything. It also get me that we can be self-sufficient by opening up a shop. We have always received donations from local folks. We still do or else we wouldn’t be on the net right now. But they have had to cut their donations back. They explain, when times get better, they will get back to their usual donation amounts. So you see we are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

I am glad the people at the Apothecary are enjoying the postings. But it is suppose to make us money were we can survive. I really think I am going to go ahead with my Blogger idea. Google will advertise, promote and put the site in all the major search engines for free. What Google is offering right now for small businesses is too good to pass up. I seriously believe I would be crazy not to take advantage of what Google is offering. What do you think?
