Register with Dealgrabba

Another weekend has passed and weather was horrid. We are getting closer to the summer now, here's hoping we get one this year. Not long and the kids have another week off school, hope the weather is nice then, or my daughter will sloth around in her bedroom rotting like a dead corpse for the week, just like most teenagers I suppose.

People are still registering with Dealgrabba which is great, still a slow process, but Rome wasn't built in a day. I'm sure when registrations are in there thousands dad will be happy, until then he still remains he charming self. Lol

Work for me and the website has slowed down for the present moment. I have done all I can for now, so I can take timeout for a bit. I have watched a few movies, Inkheart, a little boring and predictable, Bedtime stories, very funny made me laugh hard. Yes man, for a change a movie with Jim Carey that was watchable and Harley and me, which made me laugh and cry. Does it show I have children?

I have also managed to fit in a few books, Hannah, sad story about a little girl who dies of cancer by the age of four, Paul O'Grady & Dear fatty, both not as good as I thought they would be and a book about killers who got away with murder.

I have also had time to spend with my niece who is four. She is the type of child you would think butter wouldn't melt, however there are times when I'm sure if I looked on the nape of her neck I would find the devils mark, 666. Of course I still work full-time, so it's not like I have gained lots of time back, but enough to enjoy "my time" for a while.

Nothing else to report, thanks for the new support, checkout the link above or on the links to the left if you want to register with dealgrabba.

New members

Good evening, haven't really got anything to say, other than thank you for joining dealgrabba yesterday and a few more today!

We haven't got round to going large with advertisement yet, as we want to wait until the main dealgrabba website is close to launching. At present we are relying on word of mouth, people stumbling across us on the big wide interweb, my blogs and facebook.

A slow process we knew, but the response so far has been very positive, so thank you again.

Should you want a quick link to dealgrabba, you can use the toolbar links on the side, or click here

My SEO is working well so far, the reason we aren't on the top page is due to not having any AdWords set up yet and we are only a pre launch website. Hopefully once the main website is in place we should start to jump up the ladder. I have a few links with other websites which helps, but again nothing more now until later.

I have also learnt how to make changes to the website and emails. I don't think I could or ever would want to be a web developer, however I can read some of the coding now and understand most of it, which is a great help to some degree.

Wednesday, 13 May 2009 goes live!

Yes I know, It's been a while, about a week I believe, since I have posted on my blog. I haven't written as there hasn't been anything exciting to put until now and yes Dealgrabba has now gone live.

As of today you can register and refer friends to gain further free bids, which you can use once the full dealgrabba website goes live. We are still not sure at this stage when this is likely to be, but hopefully very soon.

I have pasted a link to the website above and also in the links to dealgrabba section, should you wish to go and check it out. It would also be lovely to hear any feedback you have regarding the dealgrabba website, good or bad.

Crash course

Well it's the bank holiday Monday, and surprise, surprise, no sunshine! My weekend away was lovely, we had a really nice steak cooked on some steak stones, which I've never had before, did some shopping (in the lego car), watched movies, drank plenty of wine and or course the company was fab.

Part of my weekend also included a crash course in coding. By no means am I now a coding geek, or will I ever be, however I have a much better understanding on how all things work and for this I am truly grateful, I really don't know what I would do without you guys, you are my saving grace!

Anyhow, tomorrow is another working day, back to the grindstone of life. Tra for now.
