Well, it is almost that time of the year. In the beginning of 2009, I started my blog, and I must say that I am very proud of myself for sticking to it. I may not post an entry every day, showing you what cards or layouts I have made, or even tell you about the specials I have for my business, but I do try to at least to keep you informed on my doings at least once a month. I do not want to gossip on my blog about who did what with whom and to what celeb. That is every other blog, I do know this: I want something new on this blog for 2010.
I have visited lots of blogs over the past year, and some are really, really good. They are blogs that this one can only aspire to be like. I do not like a lot of ads on my blog. I like so many things, and so many companies, until I cannot fit everyone on it. I like to put in things that I think that you would like to click on, and become a member of, buy from, or just to say, “She thinks the same way I do”.
I do want to make this announcement: I am going into a new business venture. It is called tentatively MDN Creates, Inc. This is a business doing what I love to do: Making paper crafting items: cards, scrapbook albums and pages, tags, journals, whatever my little heart desires. I have been in much prayer and submission about it to God, and I feel that He feels that the timing is right. I am not getting enough hours in my current job, and I have always felt that I was never meant to be in my current job for long. In order for me to do that, I would have to apply to be a store manager, which I did over the summer, just to see if I am manager material for the store. I knew that I was not, but maybe, the corporate office would see something in my job reviews, that my past managers would not and could not see, and they did not. I was not called in for an interview, and I am OK with that. 4 years is too long in a job, that still has me making less than $10 an hour. My hourly wage was frozen this year at $8.15, and for someone who is single with bills, it just does not sit too well.
Enough about my current job, I am still going to be working for temp agencies. I applied with an agency over the summer, when my hours were really tight in the money area. I have set up accounts online to allow me to sell items, and when I am out of my contract with the store, I will also set up something on my blog that allows someone to purchase from here as well. But as they say, baby steps, baby steps. I am not rushing this moment.
Hey, I need your help…. What would you like to see on this Blog? I always welcome comments, and I do read them, and sometimes comment back, so I can use a little constructive criticism. I do not have blog candy to give away (congress is trying to stop that fun activity), but It does help me to have a fun, new fresh blog. I am even willing to change the name of the blog too. There was already one Tricia’s Treasure on here before I got started, and I am surprised that BlogSpot has not asked me to change the name, or the other person has not come forward to ask me to change the name as well. I will still have the Longaberger business. I love doing it. Should this blog be two separate blogs? If you do not want to comment in the blog, you are more than welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will try to employment your suggestions. I do ask that they be as low costing as possible.
Yes, I cannot leave this entry without mentioning my website. There are a lot of 12 –hour specials in the next few days, and I want you to be able to take advantage of them. Today’s special are fabric bins, and they come in small, medium, and large. They are made of same fabric like the liners. They start at $30 for the small. It is 5:47pm EST, so you only have only a few more hours to take in this special. Go to www.longaberger.com/patricialogan to get this special. In the meantime, if you are looking for a gift for that special person in your life, please feel free to shop 24/7 from your own computer. The best part is no waiting in line, dealing with that clerk who has been working 12 hours straight with an attitude. If you are having problems locating a gift, email me or tweet me on my twitter or Facebook page: www.twitter.com/tricia721 or www.facebook.com/patricialogan, and I will try to find the answer to your questions or I know a few customer satisfaction employees who can help me, help you.
Well that is it for now. Oops, one more thing: guaranteed shipping for Christmas delivery is December 15th. God Bless you. Have fun preparing for the holidays, and I will talk at you later. Peace.
