…It’s TGI Friday: I Heart T-Shirts?

I Heart T-Shirts

Want to win a free t-shirt? Then read on:

If you read DYH with any kind of regularity, then you’ve probably noticed that I’m a huge t-shirt fanatic. I own and wear far too many of them, but I can never get enough. I’m always on the lookout for new and unique shirts, and often when I find them, I post about them here.

However, I’ve wanted to start a separate t-shirt blog for quite some time now, so I’ve decided to do a little experiment to see if I can use Facebook to do it.

Thus, I’ve started a page on Facebook called “I Heart T-Shirts”, and I’m going to use it as a sort of mini-blog, posting about the latest t-shirt designs that I find and fall in love with.

If you’ve got a Facebook account, head on over to the page and check it out.

There, I’ve gathered up links to some of my favorite t-shirt stores, blogs and coupon codes, and I’m also going to be using the “Posted Items” area as a mini blog where I’ll share links to some of the newest and coolest designs out there.

To get this up and running though, it would be great to have people become fans of the page, which is why I’m going to be doing a giveaway on Sunday, May 11 to one random (and lucky) fan.

To enter, just go to the I Heart T-Shirts page and click “Become A Fan”. Then, on Sunday, I’ll select one fan at random from those that have signed up and I’ll send them a $25 Threadless Gift Certificate.

Since this is an experiment, I encourage you to contact me with any comments , questions or suggestions that you have about the page. Feel free to either email me here, or send me a message through the Facebook system.

Also, since Facebook is a community-based site after all, feel free to share photos, and videos of you and your favorite t-shirt designs on the page. Plus, if you can tell any of your t-shirt loving friends about the page, I would greatly appreciate it.

See you there!

…It’s TGI Friday: Facebook?

Facebook

DidntYouHear.com is now on Facebook!

In an effort to find new, fun, and creative ways to promote the site, I’ve created a Facebook Page for DidntYouHear.com, and I’d love for you to check it out.

On the page, you’ll find a Facebook version of each post, along with a Discussion Board, a Wall, and a Graffiti area.

Though I’m not entirely sure what this page will become, I figure that it’s a great place for DYH readers to interact, and it can evolve into its own little community in time.

To get things started, I’m going to be doing a special giveaway to anyone who becomes a “Fan” of the page.

To enter, just click “Become a Fan” in the top right of the page, and then next Friday (March 7) I’ll select a random winner from among the fans, and award that person a $10 Amazon Gift Card (or something of equal value if Amazon isn’t exactly your thing).

I’m also looking for feedback, so feel free to contact me directly, or comment either on this post, or on the page with features that you’d like to see, general comments, or anything else that you can think of.

See you there!

…DYH fixed the comments issue?

Gears

Bad Behavior is a WordPress plugin that I use to prevent link spam in the DYH comment area, though it recently ran into some issues, and prevented anyone from commenting on any post on this site.

I discovered this issue when I was blocked from uploading an image to my own site, so I’m assuming that it was a no-go for all comments for the past few days.

If you tried to comment on a post, but were unable to do so, I apologize, though the problem has been fixed so you should be good to go now.

BTW: If you have a blog of your own, definitely check out Bad Behavior, as it’s helped me immensely with fixing my spam problems.

BTW Pt. 2: If you’re trying to make legitimate comments and Bad Behavior is preventing you from doing so, please let me know through the “Contact” page. It seems to work well, but if it’s blocking legitimate comments, then I may have to reevaluate its use.

Thanks!

I now return you to your regularly scheduled blog…

…Flickr can be funny?

Flickr PillarFlickr has built up a community around sharing pictures, and users interact by annotating images with their comments.

Apparently, this ability to add your own ideas, coupled with the fact that Flickr has been around long enough to develop its own –isms means that for one lucky Pillar pic, every minute detail is now a point of focus to be picked and pulled apart.

…deviantART now shows Films?

deviantART Films

deviantART is launching deviantART Film, but they want to make it very clear that this is not YouTube 2.0.

While YouTube is like a weekend movie, filled with entertainment but ultimately devoid of quality content, deviantART Film is like a film festival; an event that you know is going to be something special.

To begin with, all of their films are hand picked. No webcam rants and raves here; these are feature films that took time and effort to create.

Second, viewers can comment on specific frames of a film. Not sure what the artist was trying to portray? Instead of leaving a generic comment at the end, you can instead mark the part of the film that threw you off, and leave a comment specific to that segment.

Lastly, deviantART Films are available in DivX and h.264 formats in addition to the standard Flash, giving you higher quality and larger sized viewing options.

Considering the art that the deviants have created, I can’t wait to see what they put on Film.
