Cat talks merchandise

Merchandise

Hi Everyone.  How have you been?  I am great.  Today I want to talk to you about my teespring.com storefronts.  My owner is trying to sell some merchandise online to support the blog. We had a chat and decided to go with selling on teespring.com.  Most of the products offered are t-shirts.  However, there are other things that are offered like mugs, stickers, and tote bags.

My owner wants to target a few group of humans. 

  • Women and kids
  • Teachers
  • People who love animals
  • People who like fun things

I setup two storefronts with Teespring.  Click on the links to visit each store.

Teespring is a website that allows a person to create products free of charge.  Teespring is a turnkey solution and alternative to other sites like Amazon.  To do the type of selling like Teespring offers is much more challenging on Amazon.  Amazon requires a very lengthy approval process.  I have decided to start offering merchandise and perhaps in the future expand to other online merchandise selling platforms. 

A special request: Would you consider one of the following?

  • Visiting both storefronts
  • Sharing the links on your blogs, or social media accounts
  • Purchase an item from one of the stores
  • Sharing the storefront links with family and friends

In addition, if you want, I can create various products for you.  I have found the best t-shirts and merchandise is from what is called “vector images”.  Basically, I purchase rights to use images from a website called vectorstock.com.  There are over 300,000 free images and a few ways to purchase premium images. If you would like for me to create a product for you please subscribe and comment. We can then find a way to connect and I can go over options with you.

With my blog I want to encourage humans and people smile.  I also want to reach humans globally.  To make this a reality I need to fund the site.  The two main income streams to fund the site are:

  • Sales from my Teespring storefronts
  • Ad revenue from Amazon ads that appear on my blog

With that said I am trying to reach people through various social media sites such as my Facebook page, my twitter page, and my Facebook Group.  One of the coolest things I have seen with my blog is just how many people around the world love their pets.  In my case cats.  People really love all kinds of pets.  I have made some great friends from all over the world and that makes me happy!

I would love for you to connect with my on these social media platforms.

Enjoy your day and thank you very much for reading my blog!

Cat gives Christmas advice

Hi Gang! Today I wanted cover two topics.  First, I wanted to start with a video I found on the Internet.  Second, I want to cover something that is hard for many people this time of year. With that said, check out this cool video and then come back to read the rest of this post.

What did you think of the video? I love how there are so many creative ideas for problems. Speaking of problems did you know that many people struggle this time of year? It is sad because most people wonderful memories of a Christmas that was wonderful or even magical at some point in their lives. However, people can struggle with Christmas or the holidays for a number of reasons. Here are just a few examples:

  • Loss – perhaps the loss of a loved one, dear friend, or even a job
  • Being lonely or just sad
  • Sickness
  • Some type of financial difficulty
  • Stress, Anxiety, Worry, Anger
  • The list goes on and on

All humans struggle on some level. Holidays can trigger discouragement for many people. I have a challenge for you. Would you consider encouraging another person? When you go about your normal day, think about one person in your life who you think could be struggling. Take action by demonstrating genuine interest in that person. Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Start a conversation with someone asking a few questions and listen intently
  • Let this person know you care them
  • Ask this person how you can help
  • Tell this person something that makes you admire them. Be specific
  • Give encouraging words verbally and on paper – a card is nice 🙂
  • Spend time with this person. Spending time with someone can really help someone

If you are struggling this holiday season know that you are loved. You have a purpose. Despite painful circumstances… you are alive and you do have hope. Feelings are just feelings, but here is an unchanging truth. God loves you more than you can fathom. He created you for a purpose and you can talk to Him anytime you want. You see Christmas is about God loving you the greatest gift in human history: Himself. He made a path to for us to be with Him thru his Son Jesus if we just believe. Consider the following.

If you have any questions or concerns sent me a comment!

So if you know of someone who is struggling this holiday season or if you are hurting know many people want to help you. God loves you and so do I.
