...my website, Miracle Chicken Urns debuted. Happy Birthday to me :)
I didn't even know what a computer was. But I went out and bought one determined to create a website. I was terrified of it and promptly shut the door to that room. About a month later it was really bugging me, as I am not a quitter. So in I went, sat there and taught myself everything, and 2 months later, uploaded my site!
Below, is the urn that started it all, for my rabbit, Sniffy.
My beloved little Miracle wasn't even born yet when I made this first urn. The website launched when she was 2 years old. I named everything after her, the love of my life.
The urns are hand made of wood, with a miniature figure of the pet, and the name is chip-carved into the top. Everything is custom, I make favorite toys for example, and can put dates too.
Back then the way to rank in search engines was good relevant inbound links. I worked tirelessly on my links campaign. Wrote to everyone who was linking to my competition personally and asked for a link. I was SO PROUD of myself the day I saw my site ranking #3 on Google! WOW the big time :)
