Plus, it will probably spur some funny new ideas for tshirts. For example...

What do Margaret Thatcher & Madonna have in common?
...they are both famous breastfeeders!

What do Justice Sandra Day O'Connor & Pamela Anderson have in common?
...they are both famous breastfeeders!

You get the idea.

Default Day 3 - Spreading the Word and Fixing Mistakes

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/laycock/006166.html

The third day of my shoe-string entrepreneur project started off fairly calm and wrapped up in a whirlwind of craziness. I'm guessing that's pretty common in the world of building a business. What started off as another day to work on the store with hopes to spend some time on viral marketing resulted in me realizing that I'd already made a massive mistake in one area, and possibly scored a massive coup in another.

Default Day 4 - Life as a Mompreteneur, Blogging, AdSense and the First Sale!

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/laycock/006174.html

While Day four ended up being my most successful one yet, it also served as yet another reminder of what it's like to be a mom, work a job, life your life and still try to setup a business. At the same time, I managed to setup a blog, get AdSense up and running and make my first sale!

Jennifer,

I looked at you day-four post on SEG and I saw that you compared eXtreme and StatCounter. I would suggest looking at OpenTracker as well. They offer a fully functioning stats collection and analysis for four weeks FREE. More stats can't hurt and they have a hidden image instead of the eXtreme logo which I think is the tackiest-retro-early-90's-junk-button on the planet.

Great experiment! I'll be following your progress in my Blog starting tomorrow.

Keep up the good work.

Jay

Jenn,
I've been a momtrepeneur for a while now, and I don't know that I have ever had a 24 hr period as productive as any of your 1st four. Have you given up sleep? I'm cheering you on.

Thanks for the tip Jay, I'm off to check that out. You're right, no reason not to have two of them up and running.

I'm going to see about starting to take screen shots of the stats to post along with the articles. I wanted to give open access to the stats, but I realized that someone could change the password and lock me out, so that won't work. Screen shots will be the best I can do.

Melinda, welcome to the forums!

Jay, I just checked out OpenTracker, which is a pretty nice looking program.

However, I can't use it for the CafePress store because they will only accept root domains. The Lactivist is a a folder off of the CafePress site, so I'm out of luck. Thanks for the suggestion though. Hopefully some of the folks reading this will get some use of out it.

She doesn't sleep much, that's for sure. She's a whirlwind.

Default Day 5 -Blogs on the Brain, Reputation Management and AdSense Ups and Downs

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/laycock/006179.html

"After the non-stop action of day four, I was hoping that day five would see me getting to take things a little easier. After all, it was a Saturday and I didn't have much scheduled outside of a few house showings and raking leaves. As it turns out, the day saw me putting most of my time toward handling blog issues, another quick round of online reputation management and further experiences with the joy and frustration of AdSense."
