@cleolinda: Hm. I feel silly putting a Livejournal URL on t-shirts, but "Cleolinda Industries" doesn't tell you where to go. Can people google?
@cleolinda: I mean, literally, is this something people are physically capable of doing? Because sometimes I wonder.
@cleolinda: Point. RT @LiterateKnits: People cannot google, but neither can they remember URLs they see on t-shirts. Go with whatever looks better.
@ktjayne: You could go high-tech and do a QR code. People check those out compulsively because it's a Neat New Thing.
@cleolinda: Who what codes now?
@cleolinda: (Thus proving that even I cannot Just Google It.)
@cleolinda: Yeah, I need to figure out how to make that redirect. RT @gsalinas: You still have cleolinda.com right?
@kitalita: @cleolinda I vote cleolinda.com If you have shirts, you should have your own URL. Even without redirect, it links, right?
@cleolinda: @kitalita I haven't updated it in years and I'm sure it's hideous. I can get foresthouse to redesign it when a convention isn't eating her
@cleolinda: @kitalita I hate landing/intro pages on websites, but I can have something simple until I figure out a plain redirect.
So I went to Yahoo Webhosting (SHUT UP I HAVE HAD IT SINCE 2001) and decided to see if I could just redirect it without anyone seeing a primitive website. And then, I actually got a look at their new page editor and business templates...
@cleolinda: I'm kind of tempted to set up a quick Cleolinda Industries site that looks like a parody of a generic business site.
@AndremusMaximus: A site that never loads because there is WAY to much Flash involved, or one that was built in the 90's in Geocities?
@gsalinas: Stock photos of people looking too happy to really be at work!!!
@scbecker: Except they're all wearing FURSPLOSION shirts photoshopped on.
Funny you should mention that...
(Shhhh, the store is not ready. I haven't finished tweaking the image placements yet. Even if you find the store, I can't promise the products will come out right if you jump the gun.)
POINT BEING, I now have a brand-new website.
I spent the day personalizing the Generic Business Template (with a Generic Purple Business Daisy), since I've been paying for the damn thing for years anyway. I consider it a mild parody of form but a masterpiece of function, because the entire site is HERE I AM HERE IS MY STUFF CONTACT ME HERE OMG. No animations, no auto-playing music, no superfluous intro pages. And I really had wanted a hub to list everything on, and this is an ideal URL. I don't know what I would do with the "Case Studies" and "Testimonials" templates, except that they have the potential for utter hilarity. And I can still create a "blog" page that redirects to this journal. Also, since I got a couple of new Gmail accounts after THE NEW YAHOO MAIL decided to suck, I'm now assigning one to be the cleolinda.com contact address. So that's working out well.
