OK, so I'm trying!!!!

I don't always know what to blog about so I tend not to blog at all!!! However, I am trying. I've been on Facebook for a while now, but I just started tonight on Twitter. See, I'm learning!!!! There are so many things out there to promote yourself, but it can certainly be overwhelming!! I'm just here to say, if I can do it, you can do it!!!

In the meantime, check out There are so many wonderful sellers that we may not run into here!! And we are getting new buyers every single day. I, personally, have had sales to new buyers, at least to me, quite a lot recently! It's very exciting and I think 2012 is OLA's year!!!!


What's a blog?

A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.

Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.
In simple terms, a blog is a web site, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what's new. Then they comment on it or link to it or email you. Or not.

Since Blogger was launched in 1999, blogs have reshaped the web, impacted politics, shaken up journalism, and enabled millions of people to have a voice and connect with others.

And we're pretty sure the whole deal is just getting started.

This is Google's defination of a blog. I think the OLA Team Blog means more than that.

When we did the challenge for November, we saw the awesome difference it made in where we stood in the ratings and how fast we moved up. I would love to see that happen again.

Now this is not an official blog challenge. That would have to come from Fleapirates as she is the one in charge of the team blog.

This is just a challenge from me as a team member. I challenge you all who are members of the team to blog at least one a week if not more and lets see if we can move higher in the ratings. There are no prizes with this blog but if we do it then everyone wins.

Thank you for reading my blog and comments are appreciated.

Live is short, live it to the fullest and share it with those you love

Welcome 2012

It's been a tough couple of years lately for everyone. This year we have elections and I am sure that we will tire (if not already) of all the rhetoric!! Jobs are still scarce and good paying jobs are just not there with a lot of our manufacturing being done overseas.

Does this affect you? Certainly. This country is like a line of dominos. Push one and eventually the last one will fall, too. It doesn't matter if you are now wealthy. You could join the bottom ranks very quickly as a lot of people have found out the past few years.

I'd like to think that our country could work together to better the COUNTRY! It's not me against you, I'm better than you or I'm richer than you!! We are in this TOGETHER! is kind of a microcosm of what the country should be like. One person helping another, helping another, helping another and so on . . . We at have different politics, different values, different beliefs, different religions but we work together OVER AND ABOVE what these differences are to better the entire community of! I would like to think that the people of the United States of America can do the same!!

So for the first day of this new year, I would like to invite you to think of how YOU can make a difference in some small way to help another, to help another, to help another and so on . . . Let us all work together OVER AND ABOVE the differences in politics, values, beliefs and religions to better the country. If we all work together, this will be a very prosperous year . . . perhaps not in material things but in rebuilding our country to what it should be . . . our community, our home.

May God bless this United States of America this year and may He heal our differences.

Happy New Year, everyone!!
