Late last year, I happened to write one of my most popular blog posts ever called: Why T-Shirts Matter
Ironically, that blog post has a cliff hanger at the end of it:
It turns out that this is a lot harder than it appears. Mario always tells me my blog posts are too long, so I’m going to save this topic for the next post…
So Where Is It?
One of the most common questions I get now is “when are you going to write the post on how to make great tech t-shirts?” Let’s be frank – it has been over eight months since the original post. Procrastination is one thing, but at this point you’ve got to wonder whether or not this is a Duke Nukem situation.
One Post or Eight?
One of the reasons I haven’t been able to put this post together is that there really is a lot to cover. I’ve spent quite a bit of time thinking about this problem, and as a result, I’ve accumulated quite a bit of content on it.
So I’ve made a decision. Rather than tackle this beast all at once, I’m going to turn this into a theme for this week. Every day, I’ll post another aspect of how to make a great tech t-shirt. At the end, I’ll add a summary post for those of you who prefer cliff notes.
