Hi, guys! I've had a Cafe Press store with pond stuff on it for many years now. It's at http://www.cafepress.com/fishpondinfo
They recently sent me an e-mail that if I don't sell anything, they're going to delete my store. I was excited once when I made a sale circa 2005 but it turned out that my mother bought something from it for me. I'm the only other person to ever buy anything there. Is there a certain item with a certain photo from my web site (or that I could take) that any of you would be willing to buy? They will put photos on most anything. My mouse pad I'm using right now is from there, dated 2004! So, it's been 8 years and zero sales. Since I'm now unemployed, I need to make some money somehow. Ideas? Thanks.

Hi, Painted, what do you mean? In the text below my videos, it won't let me use HTML (gives an error). My "channel" links to my web site. My You Tube videos aren't getting many hits. I admit I'm a horrible videographer (and now my new HD camera is not working). If I knew what people wanted to see, I could video that. One of my cats sniffed the other's rear and then made a face a few weeks ago. It would have been perfect for America's Funniest Home Videos. Alas, I don't have my camera with me all the time (and it won't turn on fast enough to video on the fly anyway).

My web site gets a few million hits a year but barely makes $1 a day. I wish I knew the secret. I made the most when Drs. Foster and Smith had an affiliate program but they went and deleted that. Did you guys know or care that I still have affiliates with That Pet Place and Amazon.com? All that means is if you guys order your stuff from them by clicking through my web site, I get a few % at no expense or trouble to you. Thanks to those of you that help. I can't even get my own family to order their Amazon stuff through my site.

Just put your first search for your Amazon order on this page:
http://www.fishpondinfo.com/amazon.htm
It's too smart and knows when it's me, or I'd be making a few hundred a year from myself!

Like under frogs, this part. Add link of your video under it show examples. Any info on your pages and you have videos dealing with it. Throw a link below it. So people viewing that page might click and watch it.

Sexing
Each species of frog and toad is a bit different in how they are sexed. In general, for most species, females are the larger one. There are some exceptions such as bullfrogs where the males are larger. In general, males are the more colorful of the two sexes. In general, only the males call (make a lot of noise). Species can be identified by their calls. If found amplexing (mating), the animal on the very top will be male. The one under him may not always be female however as males will amplex with not only females of their species but other males and even males or females of other species. I once found a male wood frog squeezing a male green frog really hard and tried to separate them. I've also found multiple male wood frogs trying to amplex a single female, sometimes in large piles. If you see eggs come out of an amphibian, you can know for sure that that one is female

You have perfect video exmple for this section.

Egg Care
Once fertilized, the eggs absorb water and swell up to much larger than their expelled size. If the water is clean enough, the eggs develop well. In dirtier water (or sometimes for other reasons), the eggs may be attacked by fungus. Fungused eggs will turn white. Algae may also grow on some eggs, mostly the external portions of the eggs. The inner eggs start out clear and gradually turn black in the center which is the developing embryo. Once it is large enough, the embryo can be seen spinning around in the eggs.

In some cases, a person may wish to relocate frog or toad eggs to another pond or even an indoor aquarium. The eggs should be scooped up with a bucket from underneath for the least amount of damage.

More tags on your videos.

Example:
Wood Frog Eggs Video Has two tags only Wood frogs and eggs

You should have tags like:

Wood frogs, tadpoles, tadpole eggs, frog eggs, frogs, green frog, bullfrog, koi, raing tadpoles. Anything that might be a good reference to your stuff.

Thanks.
I do have all my videos on my web site under the relevant sections. My old 100 videos that are actually on my web site still link there. The new ones are going to You Tube only. I have all those wood frog videos on their page, under the year that I did the videos in that case but things are organized differently from page to page. I tried to put a lot of tags in my new videos but it was no small task putting on 100 videos! Anyway, I know those old videos are short, poorly framed, low definition, and just generally not worth seeing so I'm not worrying about it too much. I have an infinite amount of work to do on my web site but none of it will really generate revenue. I have hundreds of photos to add of my own and thousands sent to me over the years that are untouched and should go on my site.
