A leap of faith


I know this has nothing to do with Leap Day. I had one in mind that involved lemurs, but I didn't think it was worth creating because no one is going to leap at the chance to get a Leap Year or Leap Day shirt on Leap Day knowing it will take a week to print and ship and the next time you'll wear it is three years from now. 

That didn't require a great leap of faith to figure out.

I am kind of proud of the "I Am the Thorax" shirt because no one has really used the idea. Oh there are a few "I the Thorax I speak for the Bees" t-shirts if you Google it, but I think those are stupid and don't make a great deal of sense other than a bee having a thorax and bee rhymes with tree. 

Again I when the Absurdism route and chose a ribcage speaking for the internal organs it guards. It has a very Camoo absurdity to it and only appeal to a very fringe market. I just need to figure out a way to tap into that market.

Posting these things on social media seems to have no impact whatsoever on people buying t-shirts, reading my blog or even trolling me with vile comments. I would think if someone called me nasty names I would at least know I was getting their attention. 

Though I have to put it all into perspective.  There are millions of tweets and Instagram posts. People have to be looking at the right time to see my posts and even if I # them it is a long shot they will be seen. And my snarky comments on other people's posts probably aren't read once they get moved down in the comments. 

Which reinforces my the observation I've made many, many times that I am invisible. So I just need to figure out a way to create a t-shirt about being invisible. 

Maybe I already have.
