Hours and hours just to get a simple table to line up properly--aaarrrggg.
CSS fights the CMS, and if it would just let me code it and stop trying to "think" for me....aaarrrggg.
Yeah, thats exactly why Im switching to CMS website, so things like this will be easier int he long run. In the mean time Im getting everything set up!
Hopefully by the end of the week I will be inviting everyone to come check out my updated website.

Yay Marketing Monday is on its way. Ive updated the Linked In page. I am now officially listed as a coloring book artist!
Also learned some great info about WordPress! So I will be starting the redesign of my webpage this after noon.
Also learning how to balance all the tasks that need doing. Marketing, drawing, making jewelry, and life.
Its interesting how starting over takes a whole lot of learning, its also really exciting and a little bit intimidating!

I think Marketing Monday, as I have decided to call it since its my day set aside to learn all about this was a fail.
I didn't do anything.
I worked on deadlines. Meeting deadlines is good.
Then again so is learning marketing. Im a creative, marketing is not a natural process for me.
I'm reading Platform by Michael Hyatt, so far I recommend it if you need marketing help in this world of social media and Web 2.0 products.
I watched a lot of podcasts from Self-Publishing school. Also good information, and time well spent.
Learn learn learn, so I can implement implement implement.
Oh and just found out about the whole new microchip on credit card thing!
So time to order a new Square reader. :(

Im re building and redesigning my website.
Using post-it notes is a trick I learned back in the 1990s. You put 1 page and its contents on 1 post-it note. Allsub pages get their own note. If page contents becomes its own page, it gets its own note.
You can rearrange as spyou need to to. Then when organization and order is final, I tape them onto a big piece of paper.
They I either write it down in outline form if I need to share it, or draw it up.
Its a bit of an old school trick, but it works.
