Bloggers can be graphic online. Why can’t bloggers be graphic offline as well?
To this end, I quickly put together some original designs for t-shirts via Spreadshirt, a cool online apparel customization store. Prices for these designs ended up being around US$27 each, so I couldn’t afford them all.
Here’s a rundown on the t-shirts I made (but bought only one):
1. “I Heart RSS” – This is sooo geekfully cool, I wanted it so much. Alas, not everyone around me would “get it” and it’d be a waste of my money. Well, only 4% of netizens use RSS, ’nuff said.
2. “IDENTITY” – Ultimately, I bought this because I felt it was “practicing the actual” (as Chris says). On the front is my Xbox Live nick, my AIM nick, my email and my blog URL. It’s my small attempt at bringing my virtual and physical worlds closer.
3. “RSS is my kind of Porn” – Once again, so cool, but so wrong. I would really have little chance to wear this.
4. “I Heart Bloggers” – This might be a bit too lame and might cause me to be involuntarily beaten up by passer-bys for being too much of a wannabe.
BTW: If you do make one of your own blogging t-shirts, take a screenshot and put it on Flickr under the tag “myblogshirt”. Let’s start a picture meme on this!
