I am glad that everything is on the right path now with regards to my online store. I just need to regularly work on it for the search engine.

A long way to go still.

Sunday Bible Message- The Beginning of Galilean Ministry

Mark 1:14-20
The Beginning of the Galilean Ministry

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the good news of God and saying. 'The time is fulfilled and the kigndom of God has come near; ' repent and believe in the good news'.
Jesus Calls the First Disciples

As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake- for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, 'Follow me and I will make you fish for people'. And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedere and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Mineral Makeup Images

I was advice to put nice images on top of my homepage and so I did. This is the two images I put: I love the changes I did on my website. Everyday I am working hard putting the right keywords and keyowrd phrases on each page. I have neglected my some of my blogs. I also have not been taking opps lately because I really want to work on my website. I am trying to finish all that is needed to be done before the end of February. Visit my Online Store All Natural Cosmetics. Free sample are available in a small poly bag. I did all the images myself using my Camera. In this kind of business, you have to be artistic and creative. Never thought I have this inside me..lols

Creating While Waiting

I tried advertising my products for free on Kijiji. This is one of the biggest online directory in Canada. There are few responses who are interested to get a samples. Most of the inquiries wanted to try my Mineral Makeups. Which means that my Mineral Makeup products will be the center of my product line. That is only a free space ads and I got responses. I wanted to get the Paid Advertising, so my website will be infront of their homepage for one week and see how it will go.

Unfortunately, the container for my Mineral Foundation is out of stock. So how the heck am I going to sell my Mineral Foundation? So I look around and found another supplier in USA, Florida that offers a cheaper price for all the ingredients that I use for my Mineral Foundation and Powders. Their shipping is much faster too but I made a mistake for ordering the right size for my Mineral Foundation. GRRRR!!!. The container are too small- the size of the containers are only good for my other Makeup products like concealer, Eyeshadows etc.... So I have to order again and wait for another 2 to 3 weeks before I can fully market my product. I cant market my website without the completed products.

But at least I can start creating other Mineral Makeup products now, like lipstick, Eyelines, Blush and concealers. And then slowly make and add the images and description on my website. I hope before the containers arrive, I am done with all the formula of other Makeup Products.

I love playing with the Mineral Makeup. I will create new formula for Mineral Foundation using the ingredients from this new supplier. Their service are better and they have more choices for different ingredients and colors. I am having so much fun doing this. Someday, I will teach a lot of women to create their own Mineral Makeup. I am so happy using my own created Mineral Makeup. For the very first time, I never saw a single blackheads on my nose...lols...

Some Inspiring Community

I have been so busy yesterday editing the homepage of my online store. I learned a lot from the forum that I was invited to, by my online store web server. It was very helpful. I took the advice of those who have succcessful Online Store website. It was pretty inspiring.

I am sometimes loosing my confidence that my online store will get to where I really want it to be because of the economic crisis that the world has been going through. But joing the forum community makes me inspired and gave me confidence to hope for something that seems impossible at this time. I will keep on working hard and hope for the best.

Importance of Live Directories

I apologized to all my fellow bloggers and visitors for all my blogs, for not being able to visit back and regualrly update my blogs. I was just too busy with a lot of things especially working on my online store. I will try my very best to cope up with all my regular blogging routine.

I realized that it is more important to submit to as many live directories as you can to get more solid backlinks and targetted traffic. Aside from the keywords and keywords phrases, it is still important to spend time submitting your site to live directories. I might do regualr visit back/blog hopping and about 5 visits, 2 to 3 times a week and spend more time submiting my blogs and website to live directories.

Making This Work

I did a discount coupon on my online store for the preparation of my product promotion. I will sponsor one blog contest just for fun and see how it goes. Well I dont expect to get the real traffic for these but, it will certainly start the traffic.

I just receive some of the ingredients that I ordered last week for some of the products that me and my family will use. From there, I hope to finish the images of my products and upload it on my website. However, I am still waiting for the imported ingredients I ordered for my Mineral Makeups.

I will finish submitting my websites to all the Live Directories listed on my Online Store account. There are so many of them. I like to at least finish submiting up to PR#3 Directories before the end of February. I might advertise my website on the Free Newspaper ads. I will inquire how much will it cost sometime next month. Believe me, I seriously want make this work. I dont need to pay anyone to do this for me because I can make it and there is no rush!!!!

Sunday Bible Message- The Baptism of Jesus

Mark 1:7-11
The Baptism of Jesus

He Proclaimed, "The one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to stoop down and untie the thong of his sandals. I have baptized you with water; but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.

The Baptism of Jesus

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And the voice came from heaven, 'You are mySon, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased'.

Can't Have The Vacation

It's Friday once again and here I am running for the time to finish some the editing of my products. I asked my boss for a two days vacation leave next week so I can do all the things needed to be done on my website, but I wasn't lucky because there are too many people on vacation leave at work for this month. I can have the two days vacation leave on the first week of February. So for the meantime, I am just submitting my website to free directories one day at a time. And doing some editing whenever I have the chance.

Getting Strong Backlinks

I only noticed now that one of my favorite blog's PR have drop down from #3 to #2. I guess this is the result of my negligence on getting solid backlinks at least 2 times a week as I have been doing, before I started building my online store. But I am glad that one of my PR#1 blog goes up to PR#2. I submitted that blog to one of the strong live directories last month and got listed after a week that why it's PR went up. On the otherhand, my PR#1 blog (Concealed Mind) stays on its PR because one of this directories rejected it because it didn't pass their standard. This only proves how powerful live directories are, with regards on getting baclinks. However, you must remember that most of these directories have their own standards. They usually list ony those site with quality or relevant content.

Anyway, I am almost done with the shipping system of my online store. I will be doing the real time shipping test this week to see if I am charging too much or too little. After that, I am done with all the hard part. Then I will go back to my normal regular blogging routine and resubmit my blogs to the search engines and live directories regularly together with my online store.

Right now I am trying to re-arrange the placement of keywords and keyword phrases of each pages of my Online Store. This is one good way to get good position on the Search Engine. Majority of targetted traffics are coming from the Search Engines. So if you want to get the Traffic that you really want for your website, think and learn on how to place your keywords and keywords phrases properly. Combine it with getting strong backlinks by submitting it to Search Engines and live directories regularly. It works!! I may not have PR on this site, but most of my blogs are. This blog sucks in SEO, so I don't expect this to get any rank at all.

Visit my Website

I am more at peace now that I have my online store website up and running on the internet. I just need to complete the Canads UPS registration and see how it goes before I completely start the marketing of my products through my website. I just want to make sure that I will not loose money on shipping.

Canada UPS sopftware is not integrated on my webite, so it was just a manual set up of the shipping rates that is coming out on the checkout. So I need to make sure that I am not charging too much or too little for the shipping cost per order. I am not yet sure how much will it really cost to ship in USA so I still cannot do the full international.

However, I am starting to submit my online store website to different live directories. I do and I am trying to submit it to at least one to two directories per day. Just like what I did to my blogs. I might start requesting link exchange request to relevant sites one day at a time. Expect the link on my online stiore website when I leave my comment on your site.

I will really appreciate it if you can visit my online store website NOT necessarily to ask you to buy but visiting my website will do a lot on getting traffics that will encourage targetted visitors. Just a few tips from what I have learned on the convention. The more traffic your site is getting the more targetted visitors will be encourage to buy from your website. So it doesn't matter if you will buy products from my website or not, but your visit to my website will mean a lot to me. Thanks and have a great day to all. Visit All Natural Cosmetics 4u

The Visit of the Wise Men

Matthew 2:1-12
The Visit Of The Wise Men

In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, "Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his start at its rising, and have come to pay him homage." When King Herod heard this, he was frightened and all Jerusalem with him; and calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of then where the Messiah was to be born. They told him, 'In Bethlehem of Judea; for so it haas been written by the prophet:
And you, Bethlehem, in the land
of Judah
are by no means least among the
rulers of Judah
far from you shall come a ruler
who is to shepherd my
people Israel

Then Herod secretly called for the wise men and learned from them the exact time when the start had appeared. Then he sent them to Bethlehem saying 'Go and search diligently for the child; and when you have found him, bring me word so that I may also go and pay him homage' When they had heard the king they sent out; and there, ahead of them, went the start that they ahd seen at its rising, until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw that the start stopped, they were overwhelmed with joy. On entering the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they knelt down and paid him homage. Then, opening their treasure-chests, they offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they left for their own counrty by another road.

Enjoying the Stress

I did a lot of changes on my Online Store and have been doing it for two days. It is exhausting. But at least, I am more comfortable navigating the software. I published it already so I can see how the density of keywords and keywords phrases. And also, I would like to test buying on the shopping cart. I will complete the UPS registration next week to test the shipping before I buy the domain. After that, I will start working on it's backlinks buy submitting to different free directories.

I realy think that the first and very important step on creating blog or website is by submitting it to directories. All my blogs are doing good because I worked hard submitting them to different directories. It's a strong backlinks once your site get listed.

This is going to be a long wait and long work again like how I started my blogs. It's even harder because I have some products to work on. But I am happy that I am getting there. At least I am NOT going to think on what's next to what and where and how, anymore because all are already in place!!.. Once my website have it's domain, the shopping cart and the shipping is working fine, all I have to do is work on some of my product's images and description and slowly put them on my online store. The pages are all ready. All I have to do it upload it. But believe me, it's very time consuming to put products. It's not as easy as in blogs because you have to put all the description and prices. Plus you have to make sure that the keywords and keyword's phrases are properly placed.

It's a lot of work and it is stressing but other than that, I am enjoying it specially when I look at my wesbite. I love looking at my website and most of all, I love my products!!

Can't Resolve Some Issues

I did few changes on my online store and added some of the products. Beleive me it is exhausting!!!. I have few issues that I cannot resolve with regards to the shopping cart. The price of the products on sale is not going through the shopping cart and the images are too big when added on the shopping cart. I also would like to publish it and buy a domain, but I have few questions on the pricing before I do that. I need help from the chat support but unfortunately their are on holiday vacation.

I also need to complete the registration on UPS Canada so I can start testing the pick and delivery of the products. But unfortunately again, the person who is handling my account is on vacation until Monday.

Once I am done with the UPS Canada registration then I will buy the domain and test the ordering and shipping of my products. And then start submitting it to free directories. I like to try selling some of the products on Ebay and see how it goes there. I've seen too many related products on sale on ebay and I would like to try competing with them.

I am relying on the traffic from the search engines because this is where the money is really coming from, than ebay or any marketing sites. It will take time though and a lot of work while waiting. But I'll take it from here because there are still so much things to work on my products and my website.

Well folks, I will offer free samples soon!! I wish I had it all ready as my New Years gift but time didn't permit me to do so. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!
