At this time in the morning, Mamabear would usally be bright-eyed and shiny-fanged (after all, it's almost the afternoon, ie, 8am!).
Thing is, though…..I've been up now since (hope you're sitting down for this) 2am!
All together now….wheeee!
Recently, I've been seized by an insane desire to cross all the i's. and dot all the t's and get this site truly functional.
And to aid me in that delightful endeavor, I won
Google, eBay and half of Microsoft as well in the school raffles girded me loins and did the following.
1.) Added several Mama Bear Stores!
Take a look at these, I beg you.
They'll bring tears to your eyes!
They required me to do some massive CSS hacking and all that jazz but…oh heck, let me just show you.
Okay, I'm calm now again. Seriously….wow, while the basic installation of stores like this takes less than 5 minutes (it's really grand!), making it *just so* was a character-building adventure in itself!
I used Associate O Matic, and let me tell you…it's simply splendid. You can read my review about it over at my Virtual Coach Site here: Supremely Easy Amazon Affiliate Tool!
Or, simply visit the product itself here.
I plan on adding more stores soon!
2.) Added eMail feed subscription capability!
Lookie quick at those adorably exciting 3 hearts on the upper right hand side of the page!
Don't you just *adore* the cute little red heart with the cute little neon green envelope?
When you click on that image, you get take to my Feedburner email link. It lets visitors sign up to receive new posts immediately in their email! Heck, why not try it out now? Click below to see it work right before your very eyes!
Breathtaking, isn't it?
And why no, I'm not more giddy than a sleep-deprived toddler who has consumed 928 M&Ms, why do you ask? 🙂
Anhywhos! Not being satisfied with that utterly stupendous achievement, I next:
3.) Beefed up my Page Not Found Page!
You know how sometimes you get that annoying Page Not Found error on sites? Well, I decided to, ahem,
soup up mine finer than a 1957 MOPAR that… customize mine a weeeee bit.
Are you ready?
Alrighty then, click on:
Rapturous, is it not?
But I didn't stop there, oh no oh no! I then:
4.) Added the Comment Redirect WordPress Plugin!
Be still my beating heart!
This nifty neato superbly fabulous plugin will redirect first-time commenters to a page of my choosing! It's a great way to welcome new readers to my site, plus I also make sure to point them in my social networking direction as well (my twitter, facebook and the like accounts).
And when you comment on this post, you'll see it in action!
It's a very simple plugin to use – you can learn more about it over at WordPress Comment Redirect Plugin.
5.) Updated my Professional Facebook Profile Picture!
Gaze upon it in all of its stunning grace and beauty (heck, click on it too to see the entire page!).
Is it worthy of epic poetry or not?
(Side note here, it's amazing how I am still capable of typing as I'm falling asleep on the keyboard…)
All in all, it's been a Very Productive Time, since 2am this morning. 🙂
Which brings me to the *most* important point….
The 1 easiest, simplest way to lose your sanity while achieving your goals is to pull an all-nighter or morninger or whateverer….and just let your inspirations run wild.
Methinks, now, however….I'm going to take a nap. See you soon!
