It has been a long time since I was able to blog. Our Birthday Bash kept me hopping all month to say the least. It was a lot of work for all of us to put together and run but I am very pleased with how it went, as a matter of fact we are planning on making this an annual event. For those of you who were not following along, we had to move the forum and gallery in the middle of the Birthday Bash because the site was so busy that it slowed things down. That part was kind of a nightmare for me for a few days but now that it is done I am glad that we did it. One thing that came out of the forum move is that I learned a LOT of things about running a website and it made me want to learn more. I came to the conclusion that you can run a site without knowing everything there is to know about it but now I understand that the more I know about the technical aspect of it the better. For one thing, hiring professional help is VERY expensive and I would much rather be able to do the work myself than to pay someone else to do it. The guy I hired Luke, with Pure Development is a very honest and capable young man so I would recommend him to anyone that needs help, he was a little in awe of the amount of downloads that we have in a typical month since he has never worked with a digital scrapbook site before…LOL.
Now that the Birthday Bash is over and I have had time to recover a bit I am going to be working on ways to make the site better and easier to use for all of our members to use. I am also hoping that I can find some time to design again, the first designing that I have done in the last two months was the October mega kit, if felt good to get back to it so I need to make time for designing again. Speaking of the mega kit, we just released the October Mega kit and as you might have guessed, it has a fall theme, these colors are some of my favorite to work with and I think that you will find it a versatile kit to use. The mega kit is on sale for the month and you can get a nice sampler of it below
