I need a vacation; JSF shop to close?

I need a vacation. I’ve been involved in a number of difficult (yet rewarding!) projects for the past few months and the pace has been relentless. I’ve been working 55-60 hours per week just on my day job, and another 20 hours per week doing JSF projects. I’m feeling totally burned out and badly in need of some down time to recharge my batteries. It’s time to pause and take a few breaths! If I can convince my boss on such short notice, I may take a week off sometime in April. We’ll see!

When the idea of setting up a JSF merchandise shop was first mentioned to me, I was concerned that it would not be worthwhile. Friends of mine who run large sites/forums said that they wound up taking a bath on merchandise, despite seemingly large advance demand. Unfortunately, I think they were right. The JSF stuff is just not selling. Since I officially opened the store over a week ago there’s only been one order, and it was for 1 button and 1 magnet. I’ll keep the shop open for another month, but I’m probably going to close it if sales don’t pick up considerably.

Have a wonderful day! 🙂
