Wow, that was a long nap.
So hi! In case you
haven’t noticed, we’re back with the Official
CafePress “[Working Title] Blog” To-Be-Named-Something-Awesome and then Eventually
Relaunched As an Even-More-Awesome Very Official CafePress Blog 2.0!
This is a very long name, so we’re calling it [Working
Title] for now. Here’s why:
1) We want you to help us pick the final name of the blog.
2) This is truly an interim blog. Although that makes it the middle child, it
was decided that naming a blog “JanBlog” after the middle child poster girl

In any case, we’re back and ready to start some great
conversations. At the heart of CafePress
is that passion that led someone to make or buy a piece of merchandise as a
form of self-expression. This blog will
be themed around those topics. Let’s
bullet point them for ease of memory, and because bullet points look
- Sidenote: we’re going to invent a better name for this word. Right after we name [Working Title]. Or perhaps concurrently, as they go together. And by “we” I mean “y’all.”
So, the first order of business:
Name that blog!
Understanding that CafePress is a platform for passionate
people to express themselves freely, and that both our merchandise and this
blog are about starting conversations and self-expression and your fervent interest
in [insert object of unfettered interest], what do you think we should name the
Post your suggestions here, or email them to me at email@example.com
After we get some good submissions (and do feel free to
explain the rationale behind your decisions) I’ll put them into a survey and
we’ll tally the results.
Anyway, cheers to all of you (that’s me on the right and Community
Superstar Britta on the left) – it’s good to be back.
Let the conversation begin!
Oh – and note the rad little social icon festival. Aren’t they cute, all getting along like that?
