|08:45 am - Cafe Press (& other things)|
Over the past few days, I've been playing with Café Press, having some fun and trying to get a shop set up, just for skittles.
At the most recent Grove business meeting, romandruid asked me what I'd sell when I mentioned it. I told her to guess, and she said, "What, thongs?"
Yep, you can now own your very own Chronarchy.Com thong.
It's been amusing getting the shop together. But what I'm most proud of is the clock I was able to create. It just goes so well with the name of my website, my LiveJournal, and everything else I've ever done online.
Click on the clock to visit the shop!
(Oh, and if I read the referral documentation right, 5% of the sales should support Three Cranes Grove, ADF!)
If you've been wondering about the fact that I'm not posting so often, it's because I've been busy. Extremely busy. Not so much as I was last month or the month before, but the past week has shown both my 7 year anniversary and Tina's birthday, so I've been too busy to do much of anything at all.
Also, because I don't get to spend much time at work on personal stuff, I've taken to using a paper journal Things go in there to get transferred either to my website or this LiveJournal. It's just going to take them longer to get there is all.
But fear not: I'm still reading my friends list, so (as some of you may notice) I'm commenting on entries and keeping up. sleepingwolf, your essay is on my desk, and it looks like at lunch I'll be finishing up that response. :)
And I had a weird funky dream the other night that I finally finished writing up. It's highly amusing and very indepth. tlachtga stars in it, with a supporting cast of many of my friends from ADF and Michael Moore.
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "Beach House on the Moon", -JB
Well, now you know what to get me for my birthday, huh?
(That would be the *journal* you ninny!)
Ha. Sure you wouldn't prefer a 3CG journal? I admit that mine's pretty cool lookin', though. :)
Oh, btw, I got your card. I feel so special now! Thanks!

Cafepress supports referral fees? Can you point me to the referral documentation?
I'd really like to ask Ian to put referral credit back to ADF if possible, though honestly, getting Ian to do anything (including respond to e-mails) seems like a Herculean task these days.
I'd basically offered to do any reformatting necessary to get his new Sacred Fire, Holy Well book printable by someone other than Cafe Press (basically, I'd like to see it on Amazon), and never got a reply :(
I think it only supports referral fees to one other Cafe Press site. . . So ADF would need to have an ADF Cafe Press site for anyone to take advantage of it.
In other words, my referral fees can go to the owner of another store, but they can't go to another website, I don't think. I think they only allow referals that are internal. Here's their "documentation" on it:
How it works
As a CafePress.com member, you can earn money by referring your friends and family to the service.
How Much You Earn
You earn 5% of the base price for each product sold by a referred member. For example, if you refer a friend and they sell five white t-shirts in the first month, you will earn $3.49 (5% of $13.99 x 5 t-shirts).
There are two ways to earn referral credits.
- When a new member joins, there is a box that asks them who referred them. They will need to enter your Store ID.
- You can generate links and banners to CafePress.com's sign-up page with your Store ID. These can be found in the toolbox when you log in to your CafePress.com account.

Ah, OK. There's been talk of an ADF cafepress.com store, mainly by Shawn Miller IIRC, but I think ADF bureaucracy put the kaibosh on that for the moment. Oh well, if it ever does happen I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.
It might be useful to set up, but I'd mention that you can't really make a huge amount off it. The point has been made, too: if no one buys from Regalia, who would buy from Cafe Press?
And looking at the guidelines, you might only get referrals for the first month. Not terribly generous. . . Then again, every little bit helps, I suppose.
The clock & the journal are both pretty sweet. I'd actually order the spaghetti tank if it was in red rather than white.
I don't do butt-floss, though-- sorry. Not even for you.
Haha. They don't have an option for any other kind of underwear, aside from boxers.
Wow. A documentary on ADF by Michael Moore would be worrying. I'm sure, in some all too possiple alternate universe of Christian socialists and pagan gun-nuts, its already been made.
Quite. I wonder if he lost weight in that other dimension?
