I have great news for you!
We finally have the listing management feature of the Longears Mall ready for you to use!
Now you can easily add and maintain your own Store Listings and Classified Ads, and you no longer have to wait for me to post them for you. You can just upload and maintain them yourself, and then see the results immediately!
If you already have Store or Classified listings posted on the LongearsMall.com website, we have already set up a user account for you in our new system, and have sent you an email with instructions on how to find your username and password to log into your account. If you need any help getting your username and password, please email me, and I will be happy to assist you.
If you do not have Store or Classified listings on our website yet, you can set up a new user account at http://longearsmall.com/gc/app/register.php.
So now that you have this power at your fingertips, you may list any individual mules, donkeys, and related tack and equipment items in our free Classifieds section. You may also list your website under as many Store categories as you wish in our Stores directory.
Store listings will continue to be free until October. Starting October 1, for a subscription fee of $50.00 per customer per year you may post as many Store listings as you wish. This small amount will go to help support the cost of the software, website and time to maintain this site. Classified Ads will still be free for everyone.
In addition, Non-Profit listings in the Organizations and Rescues categories of the Stores section will continue to be free after October 1.
I am very excited about the capabilities of the Longears Mall and what it is adding to the longears community. Together, we will have a "super" Longears business directory; a place where your customers can find anything that they are looking for.
Thank you for your great comments and suggestions the last two months! I am looking forward to your future thoughts and ideas for ways to make our new LongearsMall.com even better!

Longears Mall Updates
Thanks for all the great comments and suggestions you sent me in response to my last article about my donkeys' remodeling projects!
You folks had a lot of good ideas of how to preserve my barns and fences from being destroyed by my big "eager beavers". I can't wait to try out some of your suggestions when my donkeys come back home from my neighbor's pasture in a few weeks.
I have been working hard to get the listing maintenance part of the LongearsMall.com website ready for you to use. I ran into a few things that delayed me a little bit, but I'm hoping to have that part available for you within the next week!
As soon as that is up, I will also post more information about what the Longears Mall pricing plans will be starting Oct. 1.
Thanks for your patience as we improve this exciting website! If you have any ideas and suggestions of other things you would like to see here, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and share your ideas with me.
When I looked at the LongearsMall.com Calendar recently, I noticed there were a lot of shows and events in August, and quite a few more planned for September. I'm sure quite a few of you have been busy keeping your mules and donkeys in shape and taking them places this summer! If you have a great story from your summer adventures that you would like to share, just email it to us along with a photo or two, and we can post it for the rest of our website visitors to enjoy too!
Here is another neat photo from Bishop Mule Days.
This is a pack team of big dark mules practicing their run around the track. These are some beautiful creatures to watch in action!
