    I did receive a few comments from people wishing to see the whole newsletter. However, the clicks over to my website have greatly increased, and I’ve begun getting comments on my posts. Joy! Not many, but oh, what a pleasant surprise when I do. It does seem, once someone clicks over to read the entire news post, they are so much more inclined to…[Read more]

    Oh, my goodness… I’m so sorry that is so long!

    I am still on both FB and IG. A FB I have both my personal account and a business page. I have hugely pared down my “friends” list and businesses I follow, but am a member of a number of very helpful groups there (beekeeping for example), and our island community has several groups/pages where we can get info when the ferries have issues, or there…[Read more]

    I’ll follow along. Timing will be perfect for me, too.

    Yes! : ) My website and blog are at WordPress now. I paste snippets of code in to bring products over from Shopify onto blog pages basically. A little bit of work on my end, but very doable, and it still allows me to use Shopify’s cart and checkout and tax calculations. I just didn’t feel up to learning woocommerce.

    I will buckle down and…[Read more]

    I purchased Yarrow’s newsletter course. She was so generous with us, I’d like to support her in a small way, too. This is actually so timely, since by next year I hope to better use my newsletter for more than just selling tea and herbal things.

    Lesley, you use MailPoet, was it easy to transition to? I want to finally leave MailChimp; they no…[Read more]

    You are so welcome! I’ve learned so much from and about these small winged things.

    I have planted so much lavender, thinking it would be enjoyed by my honeybees, but it is our native bumblebees who love it most. The blossoms of most lavenders are too deep for the shorter tongued honeybees. The lavender will remain for the natives, and I’ll just continue to plant other things for my ‘kept’ bees.

    If I right click on the link and select open in a new window it works, too.

    That photo will likely live right on my desktop for some time to come. Makes me smile every time I look at it.

    Off to walk Luther and do a quick peek at the bees. Then I’ll spend a little more time on Roots|Stems|Blooms.

    Am jotting away….

    Goes to figure, that when we work more joyfully, the work we offer probably comes forth with a stronger and more attractive frequency, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love my little bees!

  • dori posted a new activity comment 1 year ago

    Being a beekeeper, I’ll add a thought about flowers attracting with color and scent. Flowers also attract with frequency or vibration. If they are a nectar producing bloom, they emit a different pitch when their ‘nectaries’ are full. You’ll see bees buzzing here and there before they choose and settle on a blossom? They are listening or shopping,…[Read more]

    I jotted them down quickly. I’m set! : ) Silly pc….

    Had a terrible time trying to get my pc to take a screenshot! Darn thing froze and I finally had to reboot. I think I have a technology need…..

    Earlier this year, I shared with Chris my desire, actually my need, for a garden studio, a cozy and light-filled space, detached from the house…with a view to the woods and the morning sun on one side, and a view to my garden on the other. A low-tech place where I could make messes, plant seeds, make soaps, pour candles, dry herbs, write, set up…[Read more]

    Oh, do let us know how you get along with streamlining photo-to-storage and simplifying cloud storage! I didn’t even know I had somehow activated OneDrive until I started receiving “memories”! Now I’m wondering where all I have photos! Don’t over do it. xo

    Hey, “Anonymous” is me…Dori! I guess I didn’t get myself properly logged in.
