Big News!

Guess what! My family has a new website. I set them up with a new wordpress design (with lots and lots and lots of help from Lauren of who hosts my website). This whole web domain was probably dumb of me since nobody ever writes anything except my poor over-worked tired sister-in-law but I just felt it was time. Here I am making banners for everybody else, I should take care of my family first. So there you are. Go click on them and tell them to blog some. Because the family that blogs together stays together!

On another note, this is a little preview of what the Stranahans might offer as a package deal: web hosting, wordpress interface and graphics by me! Weeeee! I don’t know when they plan to launch this idea but it’s something we’ve been talking about for a year or so. So if you’re interested, leave me a comment and I’ll forward it on to them. I’d say blast them with emails but they are busy people!

p.s. The banner winners of April have been chosen! But I’m not telling. I will be sending emails tonight. (yes, I broke down and chose two) Don’t tell who you are until we have graphics to show, ’cause it’s more fun to have a big reveal!

To the rest of you… I’m lopping all the April emails into May so you still have a chance to win in May! Yay!

    I would jump on that packate in a heartbeat! I currently have my own domain through network eleven, my hosting through go daddy (I HATE them, and am waiting patiently for what I’ve paid to run up so I can go elsewhere, but I don’t want to waste what I’ve already paid) and I use wordpress to publish.

    I have loved your graphics and illios for a long time now, and have been seriously considering saving up money so I could have you design a banner for my site. I haven’t yet emailed you to be in the running for the monthly banner give away, because somehow when I sit down to get through my email all of the fun things I want to do are overlooked while taking care of the business-type emails that I have to do. Oh well.

    I value personal recommendations very highly, and if SAJ says that a company has been good to her, I will be sure to check them out. And if you came as a package deal?! That would be phenomenal. I want in on the ground floor.

    totally interested in the web hosting package. i think i have to renew my current arrangement by may… so if you could work something out before then? no rush. =)

    Ooooh, a package deal and I give money to someone I like who does graphic designs (we shan’t discuss that any further)…Yes, please, send me some info! Also, does this include a domain?

    And, on your families site, why are you not linked?? Aren’t you family?

  • BeachMama

    Your families site looks great, you did a fantastic job putting it all together.

    It would be great to see if the packages get set up as I am hoping to move to my own domain in the next few months :).

  • bluejaye

    Oh, a package deal. Just the incentive we have all been waiting for to get started. We trust you so we can trust them. Yes, money stop people we know and love.
    Sign me up when you are ready to go.

    I’m off to the yarn shop. Something may be starting. call me jp

    That package sounds awesome. I just switched hosts last week and it was scaarrry. I had no clue what I was doing and almost lost all my old posts. So, I’m not itching to relive that yet, but maybe in a few months.
    What a great opportunity for you, though!

    I love the family site. The banner is awesome! I would go with them just for the banner alone. I think they would be a huge success if you both combined talents. You can get good webhosting anywhere but to have a SAJ banner with it, well, mere words can’t describe. Seriously!
