Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day here in the US. Good Monday to everyone else.
Today is a busy day, as my middle son's 6th birthday party is today. They grow up a little too quickly. Makes me feel old. ~ha!~
I also have a few pounds of tomatoes to gather out of the garden. Speaking of canning, I received an email the other day. The proprietor of CanningUSA.com dropped me a note to tell me about the website. Normally I read the email, nod, look at the site and thank them for letting me know. Most the time I do not review or link out to them because of how I feel about unsolicited solicitation. But this one was different. I liked the mood of the email, this wasn't from someone that was professional about spamming. Instead it was an awkward and sincere try at getting a person to look at their website and hopefully buy something so that they can make a living. With as many of these, please look at my site and mention me emails I get, this one stood out.
I rank a PR 4, not super high when it comes to blogs or websites, but high enough where people will bother me about their wares. If the person is truly sincere, then I will think about mentioning them here, so that you can go look at them. Of course bribery never hurts either. ~wink~ No, they did not offer up anything.
Now about this site, CanningUSA.com. It is definitely a low tech site. Easy to navigate, and not so many fancy graphics that my country dial-up screams and shuts down. They have a few recipes, and are still adding to it. They even ask if you have one to share. They have several instructional videos, how-to's/ basics of home canning. My dial-up doesn't like videos, so I am slowly accessing them. If you watch them, please tell me how informative they are.
As for the shopping. Their pricing is competitive with my high priced small town store. I have yet to buy something from them, but when I do I will let you know about the experience. My only problem is that they are Amazon.com associates, and you buy through them. Not too long ago I got a little ticked with Amazon and their associate practices and deleted my account.
I do recommend checking out the website, CanningUSA.com. Hopefully with their re-vamping they will continue to keep the site simple.
Please let me know how you found the site to be.
