I never post. I'm a looser. Yadda, Yadda, Yadda.

So, on the flight back from Texas a few weeks ago Mom read some article about internet marketing, hits and conversion.

She learned a new word: conversion.

Oh God I want to DIE!

This has lead to long conversations over dinner (I have to eat with them, It's my only chance for real food) about my conversion rates for Blue Dragon Beauty. Thing is, I don't really know if my conversion sucks ass or not, I just know my sales aren't that great... but as my enablers... er... FRIENDS keep telling me, all new business take time - like 3-5 years. I'll be old then.

So, anyway, this got me thinking about what I like in webpages vs what the marketing majors have been creating and what I like is text. Big blocks of text are intrinsically interesting to me. New stuff to read and learn. Apparently the rest of the universe wants more pictures and links and flashing stuff. What the fuck do I know?

So, to that end, I've been working with a new shopping cart program I feel so very stupid. My easy shopping cart is confusing the hell out of me, but I am learning... I'm learning that all I was is a techie to trade blow-jobs for technical work. Urg, I'd rather spend the rest of my life on my knees than stare at another line of code (tears streaming down my face) wondering what the hell all this means.

Any techie volunteers?
