Today was not a good day at all.

I am sitting here on fire. I open the window and I am freezing. So I must suffer in silence. I bought the wrong website for $175 for two years. I told the man on the phone I was not skilled in setting up a website. He set me up to fail. I called in and lord help me they had to cancel my order. I then had to pay more money to get a site with all the bells included for over $300. Bless my f soul for having that money to pay. But guess what. I am sitting here and I have 5 cards already added to my shop. I don't want to sleep tonight so I already had two cups of coffee. I can tell you I see the difference between the cards I started with from where I ended up with. I truly learned a lot along the way. I am blessed for the fight I have in me to make it in this cruel world. But I am not letting anything stop me tonight. I am hoping to list at least 50 cards to go live. Tomorrow I want to make more cards but I might be sleeping all day. I want to thank those of you who stood by me through all this. I am going to need some views to let me know what to change. The entire process is new to me. I am teaching myself with trial and error. I have no help tonight. That won't stop me. I won't lie I paid two years up front since I am scared of what might cause me a mental break down. I am tired of it all. but I can't live on this social security any longer. it seems I just want out so bad I am praying I am doing the right thing. scared is the perfect word for it. But I always say I can't give up the fight.

You need to stop stressing. We learn as we go, no one helps, I am still learning and I have had mine 7 months. I don`t stress over how many views I get, views don`t matter, sales do. I have to say, you won`t make a living selling online, but you will make extra money to live on.

I am just tired at the moment mentally. I know one thing if the cards are not seen no one will have a chance to buy them. I know that if nothing else. I guess I am going to be fine. I am able to see the blessings I did all on my own. my site is live and I will be putting my all into it. Thank you so much.

@sharon6345 I know that you not allowed to post a link but I will find it. I can find anything online except the things that are most precious to me.

You have courage and gumption. I admire you for that. I am not up to setting up a website. I would have plenty to put on one but not sure anyone would care to look at it. I am praying with you, I would be scared too.

I am just waiting to get it done to get customers. I have to admit I am on cloud nine right now. I stayed up all night crying doing my website. I cried like a baby for so long. I went through a major break down. But I can only say my site is now up and I am better. what hurt me was that my online name was not available so I have to add a - instead of a _ which now means all the supplies I bought are now garbage. I am working on Staples gift cards to go and get business supplies. I am hoping to get another one and another one. Jo-ann I can't lie I love making the cards. But I love when things are organized and right now it's not. I am focusing on one thing and that is filling the shop. You should put your blog up you worked on it. Good luck.

@sharon6345 I am wishing you the best for your new site. Maybe you can somehow work the new name into the supplies you have already.

@akalinus No I will begin new with the new one. The tech worked on both sites so I will leave it up until the new one gets the traffic and sales I need.

You need to think of selling the cards as extra money. That is the way I look at my two ebay sites. I have to go to Eugene this summer and hit all of the Walmart there, Target and Kmart. We will get the addresses up online and do a map for them. Roseburg has only one Walmart. No target or Kmart.

After paying all this money I want more than extra money. I want a new life. I am sure you will do well. Have you ever tried buying wholesale?

@sharon6345 I buy wholesale all the time. Clearance items are cheap sometimes so I like to hit the stores. The problem is Roseburg does not have that many stores. But Eugene does so we are going there this summer.

@jstory07 I hope you do well. I would not manage the shipping so I don't want to sell what has to ship other than cards. I mail those in my lobby.

I am there already I am just paying fees for people to see my cards I need to get people to buy them. So that is my issue. Nice cards sitting cause clutter. I can't deal with that.

I have been up all night. It's after 6 am and I am fighting my tears. I want it so bad that I am not going to give up. I just feel a little beat down. I love the view from what I was able to create on my own. I am thankful for your words. Thank you
