ShopOhMandie.com

So I finally did it. I finally bought my very own domain name. I am now officially http://shopohmandie.com/. Woo!

I thought that to take my little business to the next step I'd better grab a URL while it was still available, although everything else having to do with maintaining a website is a venture that I plan on taking taking super slow and learning as much as possible about.

I haven't figured out how to host my site yet, or whom to do it with, however, but I did buy the domain from http://godaddy.com/ for only $10.00 and some change, all in all an amazing investment!! Their page builder was super confusing, so I ended up just forwarding my snazzy new website to a format which I'm familiar with, using blogger. (That and I wanted to link this blog in and make it all super cohesive)

There's no shopping cart system yet, nor do I know if there ever will be. With etsy I have a built in traffic system which is perfect for me. There is a little bit about my shop philosophy and such so if you feel so compelled, click on the links under my blog banner and explore all things Oh Mandie.

My little shop is growing, and it feels quite fine :)
