Hello, 2010!

Wow, has it really been almost a month since our last blog post? What happened?!! All I can say is, uhmm, nothing. I don’t even know what happened. One minute it was December and now it’s the end of January. Anyway, here we are, our first blog post of the year. And that year is 2010, can you believe it? Only two more years to buy hippos before the world implodes or whatever is supposed to happen in 2012. This year, we’ll be looking for the latest, greatest hippo products for your purchasing pleasure. In particular, we’ll be expanding our notecard line with some fun new designs like the one below.

Something I’ve been wanting to do for, oh, just about every day in 2009 is to redesign our logo. I have finally been able to do that and here it is:

 Hippo Mojo Logo

We are pretty happy with this logo and I hope you will like it, too. Please comment and let us know! We’ve been wanting to have a logo with a little more whimsy and I think we’ve achieved it. Look for it to appear, well, everywhere.

Another thing we are planning for this year is to further refine our shipping procedures. Things have been going pretty well so far, but hey, there’s always room for improvement. We invested in a postal scale so we can weigh everything (I am so looking forward to THAT) and set up more accurate shipping rates.

Here’s a pic of the scale we bought. Of course I had to buy a cool-looking one. Hopefully it will work as good as it looks. Otherwise, it will be a plant stand.

I’m pretty sure there are lots of other wonderful things to tell you about what will be happening in 2010, but it’s dinner time now and I have to go. So check back often to the blog for the latest news.
