Seth Godin had a great post the other day about what he calls the “T-Shirt Rule“. Seth says “It’s a simple test of whether you’ve created a remarkable experience: “Would I buy the t-shirt?” For most things… My answer would be “No”.
However… I got an email from the folks over at the Earners Forum the other day announcing that they would be giving everyone who had 500 pr more posts a free Earners Forum T-Shirt. Unfortunately, I usually just do a lot of lurking but not much posting so I didn’t qualify. The Earners Forum is certainly t-shirt worthy so I asked if they would be willing to trade for some chocolate covered Macadamia nuts, and they DID so I sent them some of Island Princess’ world-famous Mele Macs.
Lee Dodd and his crew liked the nuts so much, they sent me more than one shirt. (Bonus!)
I got several complements on it while walking around Waikiki from some big earners who were here on vacation. One guy who manages a large network of financial and investment blogs was particularly impressive.
Here is a picture my three year old boy took of me in front of Diamond Head with my new t-shirt. (You know you want one)
So… Since I have more than one shirt… I’ll be giving the other away! All you need to do is post a link to my blog and then post something in the comments for where I can find the link and it’s all yours. If more than one person links to me, I’ll pick someone at random.
