Building a New Website: www.allmymagnets.com

I have been working on my new website, www.allmymagents.com, pretty much everyday. I am learning so much about WordPress, photo editing, and e-commerce.

For this website, I am using Wootique theme which is a free theme from Wootheme and WooCommerce to run e-commerce on the site. WooCommerce is also a free plug-in from Wootheme. The site is in a demo mode and I haven’t turned on SEO option yet. I need to make sure it is functional before I make it public.

For photo editing, I am using Gimp which is another free program for photo editing. So far, it allows me to do whatever I need to do to edit photos for my website. I am happy about it. I also found a new free online photo editing service called Editor by Pixlr. I haven’t tried using it yet but it looks pretty neat.

I also have been watching a lot of tutorial videos online on how to use WordPress, Wootique, WooCommerce, and Gimp. I am far from being an expert on these.

Here is a picture taken from my magnet wall end edited by using Editor program.  In the picture, it is a collection I have called View of the World.  My first one from the collection is the Bostonian.  I only have 9 cities in my collection.  The Denver one is bigger than the rest which I am not sure why.

View of the World

Just Bought Another Domain Name

I just bought www.allmymagnets.com for my magnets business.  I will let you know once it goes live.  It will take a few weeks for me to get everything up and ready.  I have been talking to a vendor to get some samples produced.  My first collections will be around state (U.S.) flags and country flags around the world.  Then, I might expand to make other flags and other kinds of magnets as well.  I will have a board on my new site for people to make suggestions.

Catching Up on “The Inbetweeners”

I first saw The Inbetweeners when I was in the UK in December, 2010.  It is another one of my favorite UK shows.  This one only has 3 seasons and 1 movie.  I have been watching the TV series and cannot wait to watch the movie.  I hope they make more.  There is a rumor that they might be making another movie.

In a nutshell, it is about 4 high school boys exploring life and trying to be cool to get girls.  If you want to learn more about the Inbetweeners, click here.

 

My Magnets Wall is Up

I have been working on decorating my magnets wall for a few weeks.  The picture is taken today.  I have been collecting magnets since 1994.  The black area you see in the picture is painted on a special magnetic paint.  There are a few pieces that I don’t put them up because they are too heavy.  I collect magnets of places I have been and places I want to visit.  I also collect magnets from the broadway shows (there are a few shows I have not seen) and they are in the middle of the page.  I hope to fill the wall some day.
