History By Zim has been slowly branching out. When I first started the website in July 2011, it was with the intention of having just the website. Shortly after the Twitter page began. I realized a few months later that Pinterest would also be a great resource, so that was added. The Facebook page came about almost a year ago and has been gaining speed. Now History By Zim has branched out into a whole new arena – merchandise and apparel. History By Zim’s store is over on CafePress and, as of now, is stocked with History By Zim t-shirts, mugs, magnets/stickers, tote bags and more. Within the next couple of weeks, I plan to branch out with other products utilizing historic quotes, images and original photography.
