Completion of Product Category For PPC Campaign

I have finished creating the category products for my mineral makeup, including the images and descriptions. I am just waiting for the color pigments and some more mineral ingredients so I can add it all on my products. When everything is on place I will start the PPC campaign for my website and start getting 100 visitors. This will make me see what are the changes I need for my website to convert traffic into buyers. I really hope to start the PPC campaign before the end of March.

Pretending To Be My Friends

So both of you are obviously guilty, so leave with it. Keep stubbing me at my back and leave with your guilt. I have done nothing wrong with you and you keep talking things, behind my back. Shame on you to act like a friend to me and yet behind my back you're saying the other way.

I have not talked to anyone about this but my blogs. So the problem is you and not me. I am so glad to find out that you snoop on my blogs. Try to talk to me and I have nothing to hide so you will hear what you need to hear straight from my mouth. I have nothing to hide and my consciense is clear. I never stab both of you behind your back. Because I am NOT a traitor like you.

I knew it, that it will be like this once the snake comes in again. The friendship that once you offered are easily pursuade NOT by anyone but your narrow mind. You are not and never been a Friend to me. I can never consider you as a friend because you are letting her to stub me on my back. You are supposed to be there when someone is trying to stub me behind my back. You should clear things to me before believing anyone's mouth. But you did NOT!!!!

Stop talking about me and start clearing your conscience that is making you such a big PARANOID. Leave the deceitful things that you did because I am always willing to forgive even if I dont hear any words straight from your mouth. If you dont like to be with me, leave me alone and stop pretending that you are my friends. The place where I always sit is the place where I will always be. So you should be the one to move and not me.

It"s Just Your Guilt

Looks like these two people are reading my blogs. Well then, thank you for spending your precious time in reading my blogs. At least, I am not mentioning any name that can create ghost behind me that I said something bad about you. My blogs are my only way to express how I feel. I'd rather write it down without mentioning any names that can create conflict and perhaps guilt that the person whom I talked to will say to somebody about what I've said, like both of you are doing.

Go ahead be happy of the time you are spending over the phone to talk about me. Then later on hunt by your guilt that one of you have said to someone, and the news went to me accidentally. What you are doing is worst than what you are saying about me. I've never done anything wrong to both of you to deserve what you are doing to me.

I dont know why did you pick me that made me feel that I can trust you, that you can be my friend. Just because I am and will never be like you, I am as bad as you think I am. I never did anything to you but look and see you as my little sister. What you did and have been doing behind my back will eventually go back to you. What you are feeling right now is simply just your BIG GUILT for talking to someone about me, behind my back. I know exactly what both of you are talking about.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Heals a Paralytic

Mark2: 1-12
Jesus Heals a Paralytic

When herreturned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at home. So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even infront of the door; and he was speaking the word to them. Then some people came bringing him a paralysed man, carried by four of them. And when they couldn't bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they remove the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paraytic, 'Son your sins are forgiven'. Now some of the scribes were sitting there, questioning in their hearts, 'Why does this fellow speak in this way? It is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone?' At once Jesus perceived in his spirit that they were discussing these questions among themselves; and he said to them, 'Why do you raise such questions in your heart? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, "your sins are forgiven", to say "stand up and take your mat and walk"? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins'-he said to the paralytic- 'I say to you, stand up, take your mat and go home'. And he stood up, and immediately took the mat and went out before all of them; so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying 'We have never seen anything like this!'

Lower Shipping Cost For Free Mineral Makeup

I was advice that one of the factors to be able to convert website visitors to a buyer, is the cost of shipping. I realized that my shipping cost too much. So I worked all day yesterday to figure out how can I lower down the shipping cost on my software. It's hard because I cannot integrate Canada Courier shipping rates on my website so I have to do it manually.

I had a hard time to figure out how to give my customers a lower shipping cost for mineral makeup samples since the package can fit into a letter size package. While Free sample for other products have to be in a container which is more costly compare to Mineral Makeup free samples.

So I finally did. I now offer $5.00 Standard Shipping within Canada and $8.00 for USA Standard Shipping for for Free Mineral Makeup Samples. Shipping for free samples in a small jar for lotions and creams is $10.00 for Standard shipping within Canada and $12.00 for USA Standard Shipping. I am still working on the USA Shipping cost and see if I can still lower the cost.

Advantage Of Starting A Business Online

I still couldn't encourage anyone to start an online store business at this time. It's because I have not seen any success on my online store business YET!!. One good thing about starting a business through online store is that, it is NOT expensive. If your product don't work, you can easily change the set up of your website and perhaps your products. Unike when you start your business in a real world, you'll have to spend a lot of money and time setting up the store and you have to find a suitable place for your products.

When you start your business through an online store, you'll targetting customers worldwide and not just limited on the area where you're store was located. You'll have to spend a lot of money to advertise your products through newspapers and magazines and even on radios or tvs, to get customers. With Online store, you can advertise your website for free. There are so many free ads directories where you can start with. And then when you start earning money, you can spend money for paid advertisement online. And still cheaper compare to radios or TV advertisements.

One thing I love about starting my business through an online store, I don't have to quit my job while still figuring out if the business/product will work or not. My store on the internet is always open 24 hours a day. So even if I am sleeping or at work, my store is open to take any orders. Plus, the payment is upfront. I will process the orders once I got the confirmations on my paypal.

Every business takes time and a lot of hard work, to find out where and how it should go the way you want it. Beside, the fact that I love my own products, I love the knowledge and experiences I am getting from this business. It's been a great challenge and I always hope for the best.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Cleanses a Leper

Mark 1: 40-45
Jesus Cleanses a Leper

A Leper came to him begging him and kneeling, he said to him. 'If you choose, you can make me clean'. Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him 'I do choose. Be made clean'. Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. After sternly warning him he sent him away at once, saying to him 'See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer your cleaning what Moses commanded, as a testimony to them' But he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word, so that Jesus could no longer go into a town openly, but stayed out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

Sunday Bible Message- Jesus Heals Many at Simon's House

Mark 1:29-39
Jesus Heals Many at Simon's House

As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

That everning, at sunset, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons. And the whole city was gathered around the door. And the cured many who were sick with various diseaases and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Preaching Tour in Galilee

In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place and his companions hunted for him. When they found him, they said to him, 'Everyone is searching for you'. He answered, 'Let us go on to the neighboring towns so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do'. And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogue and casting out demons.

Vacation For Work

My vacation is almost done and I have to go to work on Monday. This is the vacation that made me tired.. lols. The whole day I am infront of my computer working on each pages of my website and at the same time my products. But I am so happy that my website is being crawled and indexed by the Search Engines. I will be adding 1 to 2products a week. I realized that the more products I have, the more chances of being crawled and perhaps bit my competitor's number of pages being indexed.

It is hard because I have to create an original content for each pages plus I have blogs to work on. I am promoting my products on my PR#3 blog Embracing Health For life and on my other blog Health, Fitness, Science and More because I noticed that my website is getting most of the targetted trafic from this sites. I have created a blog specifically about my products but I have not done a work except for the template design. I am still thinking if I will buy a domain for that or not. Too much for me to work on. I just link this new blog on my website for more information on my products.

Is This What I Really Want?

I am off from work until Monday, just to work on my website and perhaps learn how Google Adwrods really work. I am exhausted working on my website. There are so much things to do. Keywords, meta keywords, link this to that blablabla. I dont know why I am so passionate to get all of these to where I it is suppose to be. I am sometimes asking myself, "So what if this website starts making money and take so much of my time preparing all the orders. To the point that I really have to quite my job?"... Will I be happy being a Work at Home mom? My kids are growing, and soon they will be spending more time outside the house with their friends. Is this what I really want? Perhaps this is what stopping me not to rush everything too much. But sometimes, because of my eagerness to see the result of my experiment, I want to push things and see the result. Nahhhh, for now, I am very thankful that despite of these world ecom=nomic crisis, the company that I am working with is still very strong financially. I hope and pray that it will stay this way.

Sunday Bible Message- The Man with an Unclean Spirit

Mark 1:21-28
The Man with an Unclean Spirit

They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught. They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was in their synagogue as man with an unclean spirit and he cried out, 'What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy one of God.' But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent and come out of him". And the unclean spirit, throwing him into convulsions and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another. 'What is this? A new teaching- with authority!' and they obey him. At once his fame began to spread throughout the sorrounding region of Galilee.
