In August of 2006 I opened up my first free shop on CafePress, and then it just get going until I combined about 20 free shops into one premium shop in October of that same year. My blog came soon after, then all the other social networks (MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and whatever else will come next). From there I have been creating designs in hope of one day making them myself. Well this year I have taken the first steps by buying a printer and heat press to easily make my t-shirts.
My current set-up, it is sweet.
