to have someone come in and show me how to blog and be more successful in my personna online. I mean an expert who could set me up with perhaps a site online, some blogging I want to share about writing and about life. Some one who would be kind enough to instruct me on these things. Do you have something that you would like to have come true in your life?

I would like to find a place where I could sell some of my quilts for what they are worth. Even recovering the cost of materials would be nice.

Have you checked Etsy's out. It's a site where people sell their stuff. Wouldn't hurt to look. You buy or sell homemade items, vintage things and supplies.

@celticeagle I've looked at etsy. I may try, but I'm not convinced that it's all its said to be.

@Morleyhunt ...I haven't used it myself but I know several who have and liked it. Oh, and what about setting up a page on FB?

Nope, I'm on the downside of life and I'm only doing simple stuff that I enjoy. But there are professionals who can help you with that - just check around your area.

@celticeagle That's true, but sometimes that's what it might come down to.

I assume that you are referring to setting up your own domain independent of any blogging site, which should not be too difficult. It is a long time since I last created a website, so the modern system will be very different to what is was back in those days. Many hosting companies will probably have a site builder, which should walk you through the process. After that you could learn how to create a site independently, for which there must be many tutorials online.

@celticeagle Step one would be to look around the hosting sites to see what they offer.

Yes, you are LOL. With my severe depression I don't feel well this time of year. So to keep something going would be difficult.

Well the first bit of advice that I can share to you is your picture, make it real. I'm telling you this based off my own personal experience. Ever since I changed my picture on all of my websites to a real picture of me my income has just been nonstop going up. There's something about having a REAL persona online that people what to really interact with which then usually means more money.

That is good advice. I can't seem to get away from the celtic knot peace sign on here though. People probably feel like they can trust you more with the real pic up.

I dreamed of being a writer since I was a little girl. Now I am one. I feel very blessed, but it also took hard work. Years and years of it, and still going. Right now the thing I want most is to be a good mother. As my children grow, I realize I don't have much time left with them till they are aged enough to head out in the world. I want to cherish each moment until then.

I would like for my books to find a wider audience because I think there are a lot of teens, twenty-somethings, and even older readers who would enjoy them and the younger readers might even learn an important thing or two about relationships, tolerance, and loyalty.

Actually, if you liked, I could show you some things about Wordpress- it's a blog site, but lets you build a website too. It's free and not too hard to use. I'd be happy to give you tips.

I would like to be able to travel more. I'd like to be able to research the family history to the point of being able to go visit the final resting places of ancestors I have never met. I'd like to be able to live comfortably without impacting the environment more than necessary. I hope you can find a professional to help you with your aspirations.

That's one of the things I wanted to do also. Travel to Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. I would love to see it all over there. I can't afford what it would probably cost to do either of these things.
