Maybe we could have fun and make money by running a character for President 5 pages: 1 2 [3] 4 5

I just created a Pinterest board for Moira. I have sent an invitataion to you, Colorwash and Shotwell Photo. Valeries Gallery and Missprinteditions, I couldnt find you on Pinterest. Just like the board and I can send you an invitation. Also anyone else who wants to join in and pin their Moira for President in 2016 products, just like the board and I will send you an invitation. Here is the URL.

I also created a thread in The Show Me forum. I hope all of this is okay.

But who would be willing to share this character with the rest of zazzle? Or are you just saying make up your own character?

I have a feeling the big time stores like Disney are going to corner the market on fake candidates.

If you read the thread, we already have a candidate. Shotwell Photo is sharing her image of her kitty, Moira. Disney characters are not fresh and have never made a big splash as candidates. It is novelty that catches the publics attention but thank you.

I'll start posting in the various places as soon as I alter the button. Someone sent me a message about the fact that I went a bit beyond the safe zone for the button, and though it appears correctly in the product view, it worries me because art view and product view aren't necessarily in sync with each other.

Mine is a version of Moira in which shading was added. If anyone wants the file, shoot me a message and I'll send you a URL for downloading it.

After a big distraction when lightning struck the property next door and caused a huge boom like a bomb went off and then started a fire 20 feet from my spare room, I managed to make a preliminary banner for Moira's Campaign Headquarters. I forgot about no text so it definitely needs revision, which will have to wait a day or 2. I've got Colorwash's collection in there and I'll add the Pinterest link before the night's over. Fantastic work y'all. Y'all's wordage is great. Is wordage a word? It is now.

We don't expect this to make us millions, but it's a fun exercise and a good cause and we hope it grows. Read page one and if you want to join in the campaign, PM me or colorwash for a file. Valerie, missprintededitions, almount - you too, if you want a fun but productive diversion from ...all the other stuff. I could totally see Moira in an Army helmet, or reading a book, or both. If everybody does one image, we could have quite a variety of campaign gear for Moira... and she does like a big wardrobe... just keep it clean.

Is it still private? I went looking but found no evidence of it. Sad

I had to take care of the first of the month bills and groceries along with the regular housework and then my mother and sister were supposed to go to the doctor today. So I had to help my mother get ready yesterday but then the appointment got cancelled. I do have to try to write an article a day for immediate money for a few more weeks but i am doing Zazzle in the evening. I will probably start tomorrow and I will be requesting your file.

Life tends to get in the way. This morning, it was my internet connection, which was down for a total of 4 hours. I suffered withdrawal symptoms.

The file is there when you're ready for it.

By "you," do you mean me? If so, there's no invitation from Valerie, though she did repin one of my products from the board you set up. Is that what you mean?

No I left of a comma and the word I. It was meant to be addressed to Valerie. Sorry for the confusion.

Here's the link, generic url but the name on the store is for the campaign.

http://www.zazzle.com/moirakitty

It doesn't look like it's private, but there's nothing in it yet except your collection. Or rather my collection of your stuff.

I'm amazed at your creativity with this!! When I'm done with holiday contest entries I'll make some campaign gear.

GMTA, Valerie! Moira's original moniker was "Purr-fect Moira." I love the addition of pawsitively too.

Yes, thanks to Colorwash for keeping the momentum in this movement.

fortunately the property is unoccupied. And you know how so many people have just cell phones now? I've thought about the land lines, all that infrastructure and not nearly as many using them. But apparently the land lines underground helped direct the lightning voltage away from my house, so they are still quite useful. Grin

It looks great! Moira is probably prancing back and forth in the Great Beyond, impatient to see her campaign get going and gain grassroots support she feels she deserves.

Just one thing: The words at the top of the banner are partially cut off, but you've probably already spotted this.

A bit more of Moira today and then a few gotta-do's are in order. Hate those gotta-do's.

OK I revised the banner and added a store logo/avatar. Posting this as Moira's store just for fun. Left the center text and I'm happy with that. The circles can be easily changed later to reflect current events or issues or maybe just Moira's mood. Same for the logo, but the M in her star bling doesn't show b/c it's so small. Oh well. That'll evolve too.

BTW Moira's store has a z-rant of 1, with one collection, zero products, and 35% completion. GO MOIRA!

ETA: That was weird. The first time I clicked "post" it told me access denied. How dare they deny Moira? Laughing Her security dogs straightened them out and it posted the second time.

Moira is visualizing campaign gear on pet clothing too... she can see it now, "Schnauzers For Moira - Dog Equality in 2016"

Posted: Wednesday, September 09, 2015 2:42:38 PM
Here's a thought... use the product tag Zlection for inclusion in the election hub, and #Zlection in social media... adding legitimacy to Moira's campaign... think this would be okay by Zazzle? I don't want to have products deleted, but seems they'd be open to humor too. I'll tag the collection I made with it and maybe find out.

Great idea and Moira needs kitty or small prt bowls and pet tags. zlection is a good idea too.

Moira's "opponent" announced their candidacy yesterday in the Show Me forum.

https://forum.zazzle.com/showcase/repuglican_donald_dawg_presidential_candidate

Maybe you could see if that shopkeeper would be interested in coordinating so you can run campaigns against each other. # of sales wins the zlection...
Posted: Wednesday, September 09, 2015 5:24:33 PM
I am Donald Dawg's campaign manager. We hope to have a clean contest without anyone resorting to negative ads... lol...

The image for Donald Dawg is freely available on pixabay dot com. Just search for "pug". I thought it might be more fun if Moira had a challenger.

Certainly any Zazzle designer is welcome to join the "Donald Dawg" side and make products. Good luck with the zlection.
