Cake website and ideas for you!

If you look at any of my older posts, one of my "jobs" - which I don't like to think of as a job because it is something that I LOVE - is making cakes.  I've decided to make a business of it.  It's called Key Signature Cakes - A Melody of Cakes by Design.  I'm a piano teacher (another "job") as well and it was one of my students that came up with the name.  Learning a song with a key signature instead of constantly writing in the sharp or flat sign was the homework assignment for the week.  Then she and her mom came up with the title and it was a clear winner!
Back to the idea of the post.  I went on a google search for free website design.  I came across http://www.wix.com/.  It was amazingly easy to make a website for myself to promote my new business adventure.  Check it out at www.wix.com/wendierodgers/key-signature-cakes.  I am using the basic design package right now which is free.  I'm posting anywhere that I can and asking local friend to post on facebook as well.  That's all free promoting.
What is your "job"?  There's always a way to get yourself heard.  Have you tried http://www.etsy.com/? That's a wonderful site to promote yourself and what you do - when you have a product to sell.  Is there a craft that you love?  Do you have an idea to promote?  Take the time for yourself to market yourself.  There are thousands of free resources out there.  You can get your name heard anywhere. 
I have entered several blog giveaways.  I'm in the process of getting Odd Jobs Momma a whole new, more professional design.  I got it done on the cheap because I was blog hopping and found a website that I loved to read (http://www.frugalinvitation.com/.) Her web designer offered a discount for her readers.  What a wonderful way to get this done.  I can't wait for the redesign to be complete.  Then I won a blog makeover through http://www.bellycharms.com/ and http://www.craftyhippodesigns.com/!  So, I'm getting my personal blog a makeover as well.  ENTER THOSE GIVEAWAYS - it's like what the lotto says - you've got to be in it to win it!
I also got involved in another website http://www.voiceboks.com/.  This is a wonderful resource for all bloggers - a great community that really promotes helping each other's blogs out.  We all spend time checking out each others blogs and Lexie Lane (one of the administrators) is virtually "holding my hand"  and guiding me to a better blog! (You should also get involved in their year long blog hop!!http://oddjobsmomma.blogspot.com/2011/05/awesome-year-long-hop-get-on-it-get.html

I hope this gets your brain spinning a bit.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions or have more advice!

Apple currently offers two sizes of Mac - Book Air notebook, respectively 11.
Some of the best apple models which are gaining
popularity and which are driving the people crazy include Mac
- Book Pro and Mac - Book Air. It was a great investment and I found that
it's better to not sweat the small stuff.

The manufacturer claims if this can improve text
entry speeds by 30%. 1 feels excellent within the hand not like the Motorola Xoom and
the Acer Iconia A500. Samsung galaxy has been developed as a star model that is available at best bargain
deals.

Look into my web blog: galaxy tab

They (Sony) purchased Crackle for a reputed $65 million in 2006, just prior to
Google's $1. This article lists the most promising and thought provoking tech gadgets available for under $100. A smooth interface, lots of recommendations, and even the new Just for Kids section.

Take a look at my blog post apple tv review
