Lessons of a Launch

I've learned things in this process that I never thought I'd need to know; like it takes time for the remapping of urls to kick in (hence the reason why Shutter Sisters doesn't appear to be live). I've learned things that I'm happy to know--like some html code (which is really cool and all consuming). I've learned things I forgot I knew; like how trying to juggle the family on a holiday weekend while working doesn't mix. And I've learned that having an incredible amount of support around me (hello internet friends!) makes certain set backs a little easier to handle.

My sister always reminds me that these things are hiccups not face plants and someone else said something similar in an email last night when the panic began to kick in. So, although we are ready to open the doors to Shutter Sisters, the url isn't cooperating just yet. However because I just can't wait for that, I am going to invite you to visit anyway and offer this link which will work!

www.shuttersisters.squarespace.com

Keep in mind that the registration process on the blog won't work until the url kicks in (or so they say) but at least you can take a look around and see what we've I've been cooking up for quite some time now.

I can't wait to hear your feedback--she says nervously. Be gentle with me...it's still early on the west coast.

It looks wonderful! I just spent time on there when I should be working!!! What a wonderful group of women you have gathered. I hope my photography grows more and more as I gather inspiration from you all!

YAY! I can't wait until the kids go to bed tonight so I can actually concentrate and read all the yummy blog entries from the shutter sisters. I feel like I just joined an exclusive sorority for female photographers.. It looks fantastic!

Admist a lot of nervous excitement and crossing fingers and telling myself nothing can happen that I haven't experienced before... something always inevitably farks up in a launch. And on this one its the registration module.

Tracey already knows this, but for those of you following along, the registration tool is not working. But the good news is, you don't NEED to register to do anything on the site.

If you'd LIKE to subscribe to our email newsletter, you can do so where it says "get into the click".

The Snapfish offer is good whether you sign up for the mailing list or not. Just something Tracey was able to hook everyone up with for coming by the site. :)

It looks so wonderful, Tracey. The Sisters have some great photos and insights and the plans look to be working out great.

Best of luck working out the launch pains. We'll still be here when it's all ironed out. :)
