View Full Version : Incredible Christmas dream come true!

12-18-2000, 08:44 AM
I just wanted to share this "incredible" incident with my geek associates. I still can't believe my self prophecy came true!

I was just informed that my greeting card site was included in a book called, "300 Incredible Things for Seniors On The Internet". It is a recently released one of 14 so far in a series of "300 incredible Things On The Internet" books. Now while that was not my directly targeted audience, senior visitations has continually increased to my site (according to my demograhics).

BUT what is "incredible" is....
that a year ago Christmas (when I first started my greeting card site with 8 of my own tiny amateur animations) I was Christmas shopping at the Mall and browsing around in a Spencer Gifts store. I came across the first book (in the series that eventually were to follow), "300 Incredible..." for sale there. I had opened it up to look for greeting card sites of course and saw Bluemountain.com listed. I remember I turned to Jim and said (and now quote myself), "MY site is going to be in here like this someday! You wait and see."

I'm just ecstatic! I want to thank all of you here who contribute continuously to my knowledge of how to promote, earn revenue and make my site stand out in the internet crowd. And to Steve_S for making this BB available!
Thank-you thank-you thank-you! http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Oh by the way, I plan on promoting that book on my site (as of course I'm sure was the author's intention when writng it)through Amazon after the holidays and giving away free copies in celebration of our site's 2nd anniversary coming up.

I only have a discreet text link up for now on my front page since I'm giving away surprise copies as Christmas gifts to some of my loyal family card senders.

Happy Holidays to all!!!


Sorry, just some typos from my excitement.
