    YEAH! Since I'm a one man show I really dont get to celebrate with anyone so I had to post up on here. I just opened my business this week and have been using adwords for almost two days now. It feels SOOOOOOO great and it feels like I've solidified my decision to pursue my own business.. its been a year and some months that I have been planning this and the first order is just a huge sigh of relief.

    And I got my first couple of clicks through adsense on my other website I just opened.. all around its been a great day!

    Selling Alaskan Seafood and Desserts, I am kind of nervous about it but I believe it will be okay. I appreciate all of the kind words though.

    lol Yeah its funny how that happens, I'm from Alaska originally (was raised there) and that is how I found a great supplier.. we actually went to high school and graduated the same year. When I got here people would bug the hell out of me about alaskan seafood so I figured I'd try and make a business out of it.

    Just visited your website, Alaska's Finest Seafoods, and had to tell you it's gorgeous. I think especially with e-commerce sites, the design and overall professionalism is so important, and I'd be happy to order from a site like yours. Good work!
