Chatter away, friends!  

If you're happy and you know it make a sale (clap clap)

I'm just going to share a philosophy I have regarding what we do here.  Some people will like it, some people will think it's silly, I'm gonna keep doing it.

I've noticed a pattern regarding sales/commisions on all my projects (Wizzley, CafePress, etc.).  When I'm happy, stuff sells.

I'm not exactly sure how it works.  The stuff has been out there for people to buy for a long time but somehow they choose to do it when I'm in a good mood.  Some might say it's a little too "law of attraction-y" and maybe it is, but it's what I've observed.  I've even noticed that when a certain friend comes to visit I always make a sale (or a few) while he's here because I'm happy and we have a good time.

Also, on days when I have a huge Zazzle sale that makes me happy, other venues start paying off too.

And on days when I'm really thinking about Wizzley and active here I get more visits and outbound clicks.

So when you have even a tiny commision (I had one today for 5p- yay!) let yourself get really happy about it and maybe you'll get more.  We get returns on what we focus on, good or bad.  Even if you aren't making very much money, make sure you really appreciate what you are making and let yourself be happy about it... more will come.

Good luck everyone!

Being happy is wonderful!   But being active on the sites is even better.  The Zazzle stores that consistently bring me big sales are the ones I work on every day.

Thanks for sharing your philosophy, I am glad happiness seems to work for you! Smile

I agree with you, brl. Negativity attracts bad karma.

State of mind has everything to do with everything you do! Glad it works for you!

I'm a Wiccan, I'd be daft not jumping on this one with full affirmation!  LOL

I've noticed something really strange this week.  Most of my Amazon front page (on Wizzley analysis) has turned green over the past two days. Previously, it was all black or red.

Moreover, it's NOT the articles which everyone has been encouraging me to write. It's the ones which aren't supposed to be making me money. They are there for information, because I'm passionate about the subject.

News in from the catwalk: I think that Human Rights is the new black this season.

Whatever works for each of us. . . but my theory is that it is all my hard work that pays off over time.  Smile

Exactly those are supposed to make money.  Smile

In response to Barb's post:

During the last weeks of my drinking days, back in 1986, I had a real old car that wouldn't start on days when I was drunk in the morning already. Strangely enough, on days when I postponed my drinking until after my morning shift, my car didn't give me any problems. Believe it or not, but this pattern stretched over several weeks. It was outright eerie.

I agree with Mandee - state of mind has everything to do with everything I do.

Which is very unfortunate for a stubborn dumbhead like me.  Foot in mouth

So true ..

All that matter is we get it in the here and now.  Upward and Onward!

I maintain the most positive thoughts for us all and those who are not worthy I imagine Chef tossing them out on their bum.  Wink
