My EEG appointment is next week. I have three more weeks of fourth year uni until final projects are due. I have to write three proposals this week, and start looking for summer employment by the end of the month.
So, almost three years ago now I started my letter writing blog, Someone To Write To. With my thesis prep starting this year, which will involve letters and mail, I felt a resurgence of the old project was necessary. However, as the format of the old blog was hard to maintain (especially as it was created on an old unchangeable e-mail address), I’ve decided to do all further up-keeping from a new tumblog.
I’ve had a button maker for years, and magazine photos get boring. I started making buttons out of fabric, then fabric I’ve screen printed, and now fabric I’ve both dyed and embroidered!
The material was dyed [by me] during my summer course: the green is marigold and indigo (natural dyes), while the purple and red are reactive dyes (all on silk-ramie fabric). The thread used for embroidery I did not dye, as the thread I DID dye is very sparse, and for now I’m saving it. (Not sure if it’s clear to those unfamiliar with it, but the red button is embroidered with a grumpy-monster face I’ve been drawing/doodling for almost a decade.)
And for non-Nerdfighters (or should I say, pre-Nerdfighters): DFTBA.
Please help me develop this idea! Logo critiques would be much appreciated. I move fast so I need feedback!
So the idea, basically, is a website that encourages people to pledge to read the book before they watch a movie. I like this idea because:
It encourages people to read
It could possibly employ a writer to do blog posts and write newsletters letting everyone know what books are being adapted into major movies.
It has a simple monetization strategy to help pay for that writer (amazon associate links.)
It could have an active sign-up system, encouraging people to sign a pledge which would also allow them to opt-in to a monthly or bi-monthly newsletter.
Please leave comments telling me why you think this is a good / bad idea. Please leave comments adding to the idea. Please leave logo critiques in the comments. You can also do any and all of these things on twitter…just @reply me.
I just bought readit1st.com, so I’m already $10 in the hole on this!
Wednesday I attended a Nerdfighter gathering, yesterday Eff Yeah Nerdfighters reblogged me, today my Pizza John shirt came in the mail, and tomorrow… I fall in Nerdfighterlike? A boy can dream… in a Pizza John shirt with The Great Gatsby in his pants…
