  1. Hi--just curious about the traffic for your website--is it generating sales? Do you have any idea "why" or "how" you are getting so much traffic (i.e  well known reputation, strong base of existing customers & interested others, targeted SEO skills, links to you placed on other sites???)  I enjoyed your videos and text & photos of your gorgeous work, by the way.  Lee U

      Lee U, also it doesn't hurt to have @Marcia Selsor mention you and your website in the latest article she is featured in. :D  We do get several hits from Europe.  Thanks Marcia!

      Lee U, sorry for the delay , at the current time, I do not sell from the website, I really don't think the photos do the pieces justice and do not show the depth of the coloring and patterns.   I did set a store up for the workshop, but decided to invoice them instead.  It would not be hard to activate it for the pottery pieces if I decide to go that route.

      I am not a huge techie, just got lucky with the use of meta keywords which helped me show up in searches.  Now as I understand it, the more clicks I get, the higher ranking I receive from internet searches, which helps keep me there.  I do a little social media, mainly on FB that links back to the site and vice versa.  Everything I did was done by following help files and reading a couple books on website building/design.

      Thanks for your kind words about our site and work.  Ha...the videos are cheesy, but get watched and shared  a lot.  I do need to do an updated Obvara one, got to talk one of my boys into being the camera guy again.

      We had a Great Dane once that like to bite into and drop mugs, went through a whole table full of freshly thrown mugs by the time we got home. All that remained was the plops of clay all over the studio.

      Cleaning up pieces as I have time, the commission piece survived and that was the push for the firing.
