well, Ive been trying to start a newsletter for my Zazzle store. But being the fact that I am an idiot, I have no idea how to do it.

For some reason, i thought the newsletter is suppose to open up in an email, but no such luck, I tried it.

Then i went into all my emails from everyone I know and put them on BBC. Yes, I admit it, I spammed you all. What are you gonna do, shoot me? yea, i know, I'm sorry, but I was assuming since you were my friends on my email that you would love to see my new newsletter.

So I did my newsletter, sent out my mass email, but due to the emails, the computer picked up that I was spamming.

So how could I be spamming if I am writing every ones email in myself. I have finger cramps to prove it.

so then i cut the emails in sections, so I wouldn't have that many, but still, didn't work very well. spam spam spam.

then I had an idea, what if i act like I am a real store person. You know, subscribe to my newsletter option.

Ive seen it on quite a few sites, well, pretty much all of them.

You know what, I didn't get very far. hours later and still NO 'subscribe to my newsletter' on my site, blog, or even my newsletter.

I'm feeling rather defeated.

Plus, the kids were going crazy too. this usually happens when my ADD is in overdrive. Once I get going on something, its hard to focus on something else. Or is it OCD? I can never remember. But it doesn't matter, the kids just know when I am not focused totally on them.

I wish I had something to show for all the hours I wasted.

Hey wait, I do, I have a blog post. That would count for something.

Well, since I have you, you want to see my newsletter. Its actully useless at the moment, but hey, check it out, let me know what you think:



  1. Looks good. When you write doodle_daddles in the text you should link it to your store.

  2. I like it! Only one comment - perhaps you could make the pictures slightly bigger so that the product is easier to see :)


  3. thanks for the suggestions. I wasnt sure how to do the link thing, but figured it out, thanks. Also, I will try to make them bigger. Didnt realize they were so small.
