I read this yesterday:

"The demands of day-to-day living are in constant conflict with the pursuit of passions. War is being waged on our time and our energy. We multitask. We prioritze. But we are losing the battle. More often than not, those aspects of our lives that we cherish, that define us as individuals, lost out to the demands of modern life." - our mission is to assist in the battle to pursue passions!

Pretty powerful stuff. Makes you think doesn't it. How many tomorrow's do we all really have left to do the things we really want. At cargoh, we encourage require people to indulge, if even for a moment, their inner child. It is the life blood of the soul! Seriously!

So by now most of you have seen the little "bump it" tag that pops up when you roll over a product. So we thought we should maybe explain it a little better. Basically, it is the cargoh rating system. It is designed to help users push the works that they love to the homepage. So if you see something you like in a store, give it a little bump and show it some love! The homepage categories will always show the 3 top rated, or most bumped, items within those categories. And we all know that the homepage is where the magic happens, right!
