They Mean the Same Thing!

   I don’t know about the rest of the USA but all over California there are these new signs showing up on bathrooms everywhere. They are a combo of the men and women’s signs but they are all white. Then there is another sign on the wall that says “all gender bathroom”. I’m like, what? What was wrong with the old signs? I’ll show you what I mean.

This here is the new sign. I guess that only disabled people will for sure know because if you can’t read English, it could get rather confusing.

   This was the old sign. What is the difference? To me the new signs are actually more racist since they are white. It just shows the stupidity of some big wigs in my state that are paid a lot to not think. Instead, now there are two signs that companies have to buy so it costing the companies to “replace” the signs they already had. (Face palm).

   Can we just agree enough is enough? This whole gender thing wouldn’t be heard of 100 years ago and I am tired of hearing people whine and complain. If you don’t like the signs that are already up because they offensive, I’m not sorry because did you ever consider how the new signs offend me? No one will win if we keep fighting. It will only get better if we work together and forcing people to change bathroom sign isn’t going to do it.

   The way it will happen is by respect from BOTH sides. Us conservatives are being FORCED to respect what the other side wants but the other side has no regard for us and so the cycle continues. So pull up your boot straps and maybe a clean diaper and get on with what really matters in life like God and where you will be for eternity. That is something that should be hitting the headlines, but I won’t go there right now. 😛 Have a great day.

What Bloggers Should Mention About Etsy

If you are like me, you want to find a way to earn some extra cash. Being a stay at home mom (SAHM) can be tricky when it comes to making money since you are probably a SAHM because you don’t want to pay for child care. There are all sorts of Pinterest post about side hustling and the biggest one they push is Etsy.

Now, I had a shop and I love making and creating but when it comes to needing to make some money it’s not always the best answer. Here are three reasons why.

 You need money to get started

This was something at first wasn’t a huge deal until I tried to branch out and add things to my shop to keep up with the trends. So if you are short on cash, you might not want to do Etsy unless you have a stock pile of stuff somewhere. And even though you have spent all this money, you have no idea how long (if ever) it will take to make it back.

You need time

 Now if you happen to have a crap ton of products in your closet or something then you might not have this issue. But I realized that there was an issue here. The majority of my products were crocheted and it takes me 6 hours to make a simple baby blanket. It costs me $15 in supplies and I charge $30 for it. So in total, I make $2.50/hour. Can you see where it is a little tough at times? I mean I love crocheting so I didn’t mind except when I didn’t get any orders and that leads to the last point.

It takes a lot of time promoting the shop

And I mean A LOT of time. You have to do Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter to get the word out for free and then Etsy promotion that you can pay for. But then again, if you want promotion on the social sites then you have to pay for those too which means more money that you probably don’t have. And you have to post all the time to make sure you are getting full exposure so it was a full time job to just get the exposure out and even then I wasn’t getting the buyers. So if you have a full time job, it would rather tricky to do all the posting.

Now I don’t want you to think that I hate Etsy or anything because I don’t. I love my shop but I just had a tough time keeping up with the already established shops. And I didn’t have the time with raising my daughter and life to do it “right”.

So, before you open a shop, I would suggest you to really think about if you have the time to do the shop for the little reward you probably will get. I would suggest you go and do craft fairs instead. I know they only really come around during Christmas time but the buyers are there I you will have better luck.

Happy crafting! 🙂
