New Blog Blogger Blogging Addy to Follow

 

 

New Blog Blogger Blogging Addy to Follow. Hello everyone, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you visiting, and hope all are having a wonderful Tuesday as well.

Couple of weeks ago I ran into an issue that I thought was simple, but became harder to resolve than I thought it would. Not knowing for sure if things could be fixed, no definite answers, I did what I knew to do….start a new blog. I redirected my .com domain right away, and went to work building my blog again with all the pages, and then to try and notify everyone. At least trying to get the word out about the changes, and why the sudden urgency for all of it. Since that time things have been reinstated with the old blog, but I have the new blog too. Did some revising of things a bit, and applied a few more things I have learned along the way. So, I will keep the new blog addy, and have gone to the old blog and changed my URL addys that will bring you to my new blog, or maybe the new blog pages I have now too.

I am still selling with some of the same places, and it is only the blog addy that has changed at this time. So, that new addy to come visit me at is LilacsNDreams Blog OR you can use the .com by visiting LilacsNDreams. Another main page with my blog is LilacsNDreams Shoppe Blog OR  again use the .com for that by visiting LilacsNDreams Shoppe.

See some of my products with my at stores at Ecrater, Artfire, Etsy, and some are with Ebay as well. Thanks for taking the time to visit with LilacsNDreams everyone, and hope to see you again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Vintage Collectibles Repurposed Upcycled Weekend

Vintage, Collectibles, Repurposed, Upcycled Weekend.

   Hello everyone, and thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Always happy to see you, and glad you visited as well. Here it is our first Friday for May, and into the weekend we are going. Any big plans? Will you be relaxing, maybe thrifting, visiting some yard sales, or maybe have plans with the family/friends too. Whatever it is I hope that you all enjoy the weekend.

   No special plans really for me this weekend. Work on the yard…which we had some storms happen about halfway through me mowing. Bad enough for the sirens to go off. Got through that, and all is well again. Now, back to my plans. I was thinking of getting some painting done, at least getting done around the trim. Fill in a couple of cracks in the ceiling. Then…I was hoping to work on some listings for my stores. Downsizing my collections, and inventory. Making room for us to be moving in a few months I hope…if all goes well. Will sure packing a lot easier. It will also make room for me to go shopping again in a new area, new thrift stores, different yard sales, and some wonderful flea markets too. Getting excited for that! Then, I can also focus more with repurposing some items I keep looking at here, and getting a little bit more done in that area too.

   Whatever your plans may be this weekend I hope you enjoy them, have fun, and do all you wish to do. Hey, while doing your list of things….don’t forget to relax too! When you are roaming the internet feel free to visit my stores to see my collections being offered, and to watch for more items to be added too. See me at Artfire, Ecrater, Etsy, and find me on Ebay as LilacsNDreams also. I am offering vintage, collectibles, repurposed, and some upcycled items too. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me as well. See something you like I would be happy to invoice you personally for such purchases too. Thanks again for visiting everyone, and see you again soon! Take care till the next time.

Vintage Collectibles Repurposed Upcycled Altered Handmade Homemade Treasures Offered at Artfire by Me … LilacsNDreams! Thrift Store, Yard Sale, Flea Market Junkie who loves to treasure hunt, and sometimes junking too! I enjoy finding old vintage collectibles that can be reused again for you. Sometimes some of the treasures found are not in such good shape, only 1 piece from a set, have been neglected, headed to the dumps, and etc. are things that I will rescue, and find a new life for them by repurposing, and upcycling them. I take joy in doing online sales, and have been doing them since 2004.

My main venue is with Artfire, and I also offer items at Ecrater and Etsy too. When not doing this I enjoy spending time with my Blog, and reading other blogs too. So, take some time, and stop on over to visit me with places mentioned. When visiting my Blog make sure to share something, leave a comment, or even say Hi so that I know to come visit with you too!:) Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams today.

Changes to Main Blog and Blog Page

Hello, Good Morning, Afternoon, or whatever the time might be to you. Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams!

I had made some changes to my main LilacsNDreams Blog with one of my main pages that is called LilacsNDreams Shoppe. I added another domain to it, and then redirected the other one to my website. Busy, busy, busy. Always a working progress for everything…don’t you find this to be true too? When you have a chance click the links, and you shall go directly there to visit. While there make sure to see all my pages, leave comments, share something, of most of all….leave me a note saying Hi so that I may also come visit with you too.

You will also notice on the main page of my LilacsNDreams Blog that I show my links there for the market places I am selling with at Artfire, Ecrater, and Etsy too. I sell vintage, collectibles, repurposed, upcycled, reused, handmade, homemade, hand altered treasures. If you see something you like give me a holler. I can also bill you directly with an invoice from Paypal, and Google Checkout too. I have been working on some projects at home. Some items were painted from this fall, and I have been working to add some mod podge, a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. I have some more cupcake plates I am working with. 3 of them are matching, and lace is being added to them for a bit more character of the pieces. When I glue things it is a slow process as I like to let things settle each time I do something for more secure applications. Make sure to visit places I have mentioned to see what is now showing, and to watch for more items to come as I complete things, and add them to my inventory. 

Again, I would like to thank you so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Take care, and have a wonderful Sunday.

Happy New Year From LilacsNDreams

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy New Year From LilacsNDreams! I know, a week later, sorry. Like many others working on that ‘catch’ up of all things after the holidays. WOW! We are already into the second week of the new year for 2012 already. Time just flies, right? Hope the Holidays were good to all of you, and I do wish everyone a prosperous year with achievements in all goals that you have set for yourselves.

Not only have we been busy with house improvements here…don’t know how we are living some days with this mess….but I have started to move some of my inventory to one of my stores as well too. For things vintage, collectibles, and gently used I offer those products at Ecarter. I have another store that I have added inventory to, and have more to add that is for items I have repurposed, upcycled, and altered. You will see some vintage pieces in this store as well which is at Artfire. I enjoy what I do, and it has been frustrating not being able to work with some projects I had scheduled for this winter due to contractors in, and out, moving furniture and things from upstairs to downstairs, and so on to make room. Crossing my fingers that soon it can be done, and I can settle down to work more.

I want to thank you for visiting with LilacsNDreams, and hope to see you again. If you have any questions don’t hesitate in contacting me, and make sure you say Hi when you stop to visit too. I can then come by to see you too. Take care everyone, and see you again soon. Have a super week!

Google Plus, Facebook, Social Media Which One is For You

Google Plus, Facebook, Social Media Which One is For You?

Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you here, and happy that you stopped by to visit with me. Lot of buzz going on lately with the changes at Facebook, and also with the new Google Plus that has now opened to everyone. There are many Social Medias out there that all serve the needs, and interests of many. What you do with all of it is up to you, and what your goals are. Do you belong to facebook, and if so, how you are adjusting with the changes? Do you like them, and is facebook doing what you want it to do for you.

How about Google Plus? How many of you have signed up there, and how has that been going for you? Do you like it, and is it doing what you would like to see it doing so far. I know they are still not releasing the part of it for the businesses, and have you signing in with your personal names right now. Some have had the issue of being warned, and having their accounts removed if they tried to put in their business as they are not wanting it there yet.

Besides Google Plus, and Facebook do you have other Social Medias that you also belong to. What are they, and how have they benefited you with all that you do?

I do have an account at Facebook, and have had it for quite a while. I can’t even remember when I first signed up with them. Long time ago I remember. I had been enjoying my time with Facebook, have met many people there, have seen many things from others, have learned from others, and have felt it to be a good experience and found it beneficial to me as well. But, with the changes that have come out recently, and are still happening I am not quite sure yet. I have always had problems with glitches on facebook. Some small, some I have over come, and some have been quite aggravating too. Right now I feel like I have been missing out on posts that others have shared, and it just does not quite feel as comfortable as before. Changes I can handle, but I am still not sure with all of this at Facebook yet. I will keep my account there as there are many friends, and acquaintances that have been made. I guess I will see if it is still beneficial to me with the changes that have been made, and if it is still helping me in anyway.

I have had a Google Account for a long time, the profile, sharing my links to everything there, and all of that. Since Google Plus has come out I did get another profile done for me using my own name….THAT was a change right there! I have used my LilacsNDreams name for so long, and have come accustomed to answering to Lilacs that it feels really odd to see my name there. I know many do not know my name at all which will be an adjustment. But, my avatar does have my business name with it so that others can find me. For the time I have been using the new google plus I have enjoyed it really. Much cleaner pages, I do not feel like I am being spammed with everyone showing their items for sale. Some sellers I would receive 1/2 to a full page of them alone with listings they have done in their stores. I do like with all my friends that I can put them with different circles to how I am associated with them. It feels more organized that way. When I do post something I have the option of making it public, or maybe just sharing it with the groups in general it would pertain to. I have not really had that much of a problem learning things with this new google plus, and I am adjusting with it quite well.

As for other Social Medias I do belong to a few. Use to be much more, but I was not benefiting with them, and it would show with my google analytics who I was benefitting more with too. I belong to The Vintage Village which keeps growing. You can show pictures of things there you offer, the premium membership is not a bad price to pay for all the site does for you, they do have free accounts there too. I have met many through there, learned from others there, if I have a question I can freely ask it with many members who will offer their knowledge to help you out. The owner is a great person there too. A sister site to this is The Vintage Rising which is for those members who deal with items that are still vintage, but have altered vintage pieces they have made that they have in their homes, or offer them for sale as well. Then, there is Treasure Seekers Unite which Angie the owner is a great person too. The site is under maintenance right now, but is also a great place with different groups to be involved with, sharing things whether it is business or personal, etc. When you get a chance, stop by to visit the sites I have noted, and check them out. The more, the merrier it is when we can all come together to share, converse, learn, and strut our stuff with our products we have to offer.

It has been a pleasure to have ya’ll stop by, and visit with LilacsNDreams. Thank You, and come visit with my anytime! Take care, and hope to see you again:)

Blog, Blogging, LilacsNDreams Blog

Welcome again to LilacsNDreams! Glad you stopped by.

I have been working with my blogs again, and you know, they actually can take as much work as maintaining a website too. All depends what you put into it, and what you wish to receive with it, and what your goals are. I enjoy blogging, and find it relaxing too. I can share what I know, what I have learned, something I have seen, and it is kind of like having a journal. Difference being that with a blog you can also interact with people too. People you meet through your blogs, get to know them and their business, share things, and enjoy the time of conversing.

So, what I have been working on lately was adding a couple of more pages along with the others I have on my blog. Pages that are for people to interact with things a bit more. I always remind people they are welcome to share, comment, suggest, and so on. Maybe you would like to add a comment to one already left, and that is fine too. All I ask is to please remember everyone does have their own opinion to things, respect this, and we shall all get alone great!:)
I would also like to share a link to my other blog of LilacsNDreams, and a link to my LilacsNDreams Website too. Please give them a visit to see what has been done with the blog so far, the website, and know with the website I am doing a few minor adjustments as well. Similar to this one, but yet different in its own way too. I do hope everyone is having a great weekend so far, the weather is behaving for you, and to please remember those dealing with the floods…we are having that in our area with evacuations, and not sure when they can go back to their homes. Enjoy, and be safe everyone. Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams!


Blog, Blog for Business Pleasure and Both

Blog, Blog for Business Pleasure and Both. How many people blog? Do you like blogging, and how do you use your blog? Many people will use their blogs for their online sales, show pictures of their products, show links to their stores, some use their blogs as their website, on my website I have a tab/page for my blog there, and some use their blogs as a journal or diary. Many ways, and many things to use your blogs for.

When blogging there are different things you can do to make your blogs become visible with searches, and in rankings too. Oh, yes, your blogs can show with search engines. Searches like content, and each time you do a new post to your blog, it is like a new web page being added which goes out to the search engines to be seen, and ranked.

There are many blog platforms out there that could be used, and everyone has to find what works for them, what they are comfortable with, if you want to use free platforms of blogging or if you wish to pay, some platforms offer more than others, some are more technical to work with, etc. There is wordpress, blogger….more popular ones. There is type pad, I know on weebly you can do free websites there, and I have seen some use weebly as their blog only too. As I suggest with many things, find the platform that works for you, and that you feel good working with. When you can do that, blogging will become more enjoyable for you, and not just another thing you should do.

To see more extensive explanations to some of this in regards to search engines, and things please visit with my other LilacsNDreams Blog in which I have done that. Also, feel free to visit my LilacsNDreams Website with my blog to see the set up I have done there with my website and blog. Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams WordPress Blog. Glad to have you, and you are always welcome to visit with me, leave a comment, comment to other comments, etc. Have a super Monday!:)

 

How Many Storefronts Should be Enough

How Many Storefronts Should be Enough. How many times have we asked ourselves this? If we have more than 1 store do we benefit from it? If we want to have just 1 store, can we house everything in it, and just have more categories. Which one do you think our customers would approve of.

This is one topic where there is no right, or wrong answer to the question. I myself have seen many sellers have many stores. They might have 2, 3, 4, 6, 10 stores and more. There are many factors to consider having so many stores. Are you duplicating your products with each store. Does it help you spread your inventory a little more. How much will it cost to have numerous stores. Will it take more maintenance, and upkeep for numerous stores. Also, how much time will it take, and should it take to manage different stores. Does having so many store really help me more with the search engines.

There is another blog by me LilacsNDreams with a post titled How Many Storefronts Do We Need, How Many is Enough. I would suggest visiting there to see what was all said, what was suggested, and for you to read, share, comment on your opinion and experiences, and so on. It has had some comments through the blog, facebook, twitter, linked in, and private direct comments too. Really gives you some ideas to think about, and consider.

Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams WordPress Blog. Glad to have you here, and that you joined with me to read, and share this topic. Always welcome to visit my blog here, and with my other LilacsNDreams Blog too. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Enjoy, and be safe.
