I'm totally cranky this morning for a variety of reasons, and, as if I need anything else to fuel the flames of my pissy-ness, I see that LogoLounge has posted their list of 2007 Logo Trends. Now, this list in itself hardly ruffled my feathers...until I saw #6.
I rode the early adoption crest (ha) of this trend over two years ago, when I attempted to launch:
Since putting up the "coming soon" home page, I've not only moved all of the merchandise at least three times, but paid over $200 in fees to keep up the non-active site. Last night, I actually found myself wishing something would just blow up in our basement and incinerate the inventory so that all I had to remind me of my entrepreneurial dreams were some ashes from which to rise.
Mostly, I'm irritated at myself for lack of motivation but just thinking of the whole thing makes me tired. Pipe dreams: pretty good until they turn into Chinese fingertraps.
It's clearly a Monday.
