So I think I've done as much as I want on my site for a while and think I am gonna sit the next week away from the computer monitor because my eyes are burnin from all the late nights.

Had a blast but boy can a guy get burned out from being his sites most frequent visitor trying to get it spot on and as good as this former Marine can get it. I know, I know it could be a ton better but like I once said "It's my first" and I didn't know exactly what I was getting myself into when I started.

Sooooo, I think that I will just sit back and drink coffee and enjoy the sunshine while waiting for the US market to return from the slumps or the millionaires to come out of the corn field because I built it and they will come. Oh wait thats Field of Dreams and baseball players. Darn...

Anyway if you gals and guys can give my site a peek and try out all the buttons and stuff I would be most appreciative. Now I have all the time in the world to help out others like I would rather spend my time on. I will take a few days off though. Sorry but it's a necessity. Thanks Synthasite for a great product...

Be gentle on the comments ;)

Thanks and have a great day...

Hi mredsayshi

I have been looking at your site. I have really enjoyed following it's development up to this point. I can imagine that you must be exhausted by now!

First of all I want to say how incredibly proud I am that a truly exceptional website such as this was built using SynthaSite! Your flair for design and innovative use of our features and the features of other web services make us look very good indeed. I think you have created a masterpiece and I hope you are very happy with it and that it brings you plenty of business.

One small question: On your homepage you seem to have added your sitemap and robots.txt file using our file widget and they are therefore showing up linked files on your page. Is this deliberate? Is there any reason why you didn't simply upload them to the file manager so that they would stay concealed?

I am sure other people will also jump in and comment. I am hoping for a quieter week end in support so that I can play with your flash banner maker! (What are the chances?)

Enjoy your well deserved break!

Thanks for your kind words Hun they were most needed as I am blinded by the work and I am unable to be a good judge of if it looks good or not.

Yeah as to the sitemap being there I had tried to submit my site to google sooo many times and nothing because they could not locate the file and kept getting errors so I placed it on the Index page and then clicked it to open it in another tab and then I copied the address of the file and submitted that to Google Web Master Tools and what do you know I had no issues come up and the 15th or so attempt finally worked and I got all 3 green check marks saying it's okay. Mind you it was the first attempt trying it this way.

The results:

It was the only way it worked for me and god know I tried them all.

Thanks again for the positive comments and I am sure there are many sites much better than mine out there and for a novice I suppose it's okay. I had done quite a bit of graphic and advertising work for past businesses and I guess it stuck with me a little. Good to know.

PS... Hi Orlando Florida

PS. I followed your advice in a previous post and placed a robots.txt file using the file widget. Analytics now tells me my last crawl date is N/A.
I had already been crawled before this (6 August 2008)
Do I wait again or should I delete this file and re-submit my site.
Notice my new avatar - I'm puzzled!

Hi MrEd,

I loked at your site earlier briefly but I just took a tour now. It is awesome, but the playhouses look even more awesome. I guess its good that your website makes me want one of the playhouses though, right?

thanks Mary do have a rich uncle??? LOL just kidding.

I am blinded by too many hours looking at it and I can't judge my own stuff so it's good that we have this forum for everyone to give each other tips, trick, kind words and even critic the sites...

I only wish more users would begin posting here instead of simply reading. I know there must be thousands of users out there...

Thanks again for the kudos

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you have an error on your page about here:

of them and their little one built right into the design. My work or structures can easily be described as attention to detail, safe, sound, and secure mixed with a fun side.

<!--[if !supportLineBreakNewLine]-->

A “from the child’s perspective” way of building you might say with the Dry-erase boards being an integral part of the design element. The customization after purchase involves a wide range of options ranging from exterior veneer

Thanks I cut and pasted something directly from word and it happens sometimes. I simply forgot to do a quick check with IE and verify it was okay.

Thanks again... Hey comparing how much there is I think a few were expected..

Okay Monique, Ruth and everybody else who wishes to take a look could you in your free time take a peek at my updated site. I just now finished and added some new pages that you can access in the Pricing page or through the lower menu on all pages.

Officially I think after adding those I can rest and do nothing else. I just had to make sure it looked presentable enough and not like it was my first web site... Oh wait it was my first.

I appreciate your kind comments and continued interest.

Congrats on a site well done!!

Hi mredsayshi
Thanks again for all the help last night.

Too everyone else, mredsayshi is an extremely helpfull chap.
He spent over an hour online with me last night sorting out a problem with my site. I think he's a good candidate for "rep of the month" - sorry Monique.
Just kidding - You're still the best Monique.http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite...

Sorry chief I didn't even see your comments until just now and well all I can say I'm glad to oblige. Never been one for a pat on the back or to do something for someone to get something in return but kind words work wonderfully...

Did you look to see if the green checkmarks appeared in the google webmaster tools yet.

Your flash items are real cool, bra! As a part time cabinet maker of 15 years, I'm Impressed with the quality of your product. As a commercial artist, I'm concerned about copyright infringements with the Disney characters. (I've seen them go after a daycare that had their characters painted on the walls) You might consider using some clip art that you have permission to. Great job overall! p.s. If you have a few minutes, please check out my site as I'm testing out a new analytical html I added. Thanks. Guido

aha yeah OMG I didn't think of the pic with pooh in it... I had sent a pic over to a friend in Poland to look at and she sent it back with him in it. It just slipped my mind though... Sad because I really liked that one. Anyway, and the others are bought vector art and not disney so to appease the Man I took it off.

Thanks for the heads up I will tell her I got in trouble though and make her feel bad for a little while (nah just kidding) I would never do that.

Thanks for the kind comments about my craftsmanship but you didn't leave your site for me to look at though.
