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.
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.
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.
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.
I am a big advocate for a great company’s culture. Once you have it, it is hard to maintain it. More important, how to make your company’s culture evolve to reflect the current and future of the company’s vision. Click here for an article about how huddle could save your company’s culture.
