Solvency soon, 'cause we're finally making some money. . .

A week or so back I went to my mailbox here at home and pulled out a check for $5.00 from the people at CafePress, the online merchandise people who let you sell branded gear for free. If you’ve ever noticed the sweatshirts in the right columns (“Got Summa?”), then you’ve seen these CafePress products. In a fit of creativity of few years back—procrastination?—I put together a fun little product line of things, hoping that now and again someone might buy something, and the money from sales would help to make self-sustaining. Oh, to have the site be revenue-neutral!

Someone must have taken the bait, because when an item is sold a sliver of the cost goes back to the owner of the “product line,” in this case, back to me. So, to whoever actually bought something from the CafePress mini-site, a hearty thank you for helping to defray the monthly cost of keeping the site going.

Spring’s coming, so it may be time to put together some baseball caps!
