I have spent most of today working on setting up a shopping cart to handle the millions of orders that will be coming into my blog when I start to sell stuff. Do I need to do this or should I just build a couple of pages and call it good?
At this point I am not sure. It has been a bunch of work and I still don’t have much done. I am seriously questioning my logic on this. I think the thing that makes me the most mad is that I just can’t let it go and let it beat me right now. Damn you PHP I will reach into your guts and squeeze until I get what I want.
Wow what a rant I had prepared but it has now all but fizzled out. I designed a new logo, figured out a new drawing program, made some buttons, and now I am going to shelve the whole works for a couple of days. I need to write and get out and comment on some blogs! I need to wait until I actually have a product to offer.
Quick poll, does a professional looking shopping cart make any difference to you or do paypal buttons get the job done and suffice? Please give me some input either here in comments, or by email, or by pony express, or by signing up for my newsletter! (First issue on St Patricks Day!)
I may not be an authority on WordPress yet, but I refuse to let it dictate the way my blog will behave! That is why I moved from WordPress.com to .org, so that I could have total control over my site. It is kind of funny to think about that because I am not generally that controlling. But I will rule this blog with an Iron fist and throw the interlopers overboard!
Have I ever mentioned, I really like pirates? BTW Talk Like A Pirate Day is September 19th.
So the long and short of it is this, no matter who you are, you need to own your blog, your site and your online experience. The hardest part is to look inside yourself and find the drive and resolution to grab that blog by the throat and throttle it until it says “Uncle!” And if you don’t, I will be by to pillage your site soon.
Let’s spread the word and the word is ARRRRRRR!!
