MY ONLINE T-SHIRT & MERCHANDISE DESIGN BUSINESS

It has been a while since my last post! I have been so busy working on my new business venture. I recently started an online T-shirt and merchandise business at cafepress, a great site for anyone to start a business at home by just being creative! I really enjoy working on the website it is fun and easy. But having said that it is a job and it takes a lot of hours and hard work to put things together.

I am very new to this business, I am learning more and more each day. I plan on opening a couple of other shops in 2006! I am currently not working due to some health problems. So every sale that I make is exciting to earn and it helps financially as I do not have medical insurance currently so all my medical expenses are out of what small pockets I have! It really feels great when I make a sale it is uplifting when someone likes your products enough to purchase them!

Sales have been slow and I have not made a lot of money. Advertising my shop has proven to be difficult as I do not have the money to spend on ads! So I search for all the free online sites to post my website as well as writing blogs!

I also sell items on Ebay from time to time, I have just recently sold a couple of items which is also great and the best part about selling on Ebay is that you are paid right away as oppose to my cafepress shop which the commission checks are not released for 45 days! That's a long time when you are counting on that money to help pay your bills!

I have decided this Christmas that I really do not want anything for myself! With so many people suffering from "Katrina" I just do not want anything for myself except for better health and financial stability! I am Blessed that I have a roof over my head and a nice and safe place to live,but so did so many others and then it all changed overnight, their world was turned upside down!

I have donated several boxes of items both used and new items that I purchased from my shop to shelters in Houston, Texas and Baton Rouge La. Where many of the "Katrina" victims are staying! I am currently working on a Christmas package to send to the shelters as well! The gift of giving is what I plan on doing this year for Christmas! My only wish is that I was financially in a position to do so much more!

MY INTRODUCTION TO BLOGGING

As I search for the right words to say, it occurs to me how scary the thought of actually blogging is. The thought of actually writing blogs for the world to see is overwhelming to say the least. But having said that the thought of blogging is also exciting! So my fellow readers STAY TUNED! I will be posting my very first blog in the coming days!
