and other T-shirt blogs
Welcome back Ultimate Monday. I featured Ultimate shirts on Wednesdays in the Fall because that's when we played. I am shifting back to Monday just to be easy. It's the start of the work week. Things to do. Although Grading Robot will have a somewhat easy week with CTU just starting up. Other schools will need attention, and I am running individual conferences on Wednesday at WMU. But compared to usual, it's a lighter week. Still, today's post will be relatively short. Though in addition to the MUSL shirt, I will feature a little blog recap and other people's blogs recap.
Today's shirt comes from Michiana Ultimate Summer League (South Bend) where I played three seasons: two prior to forming our own league, and one final season before I could no longer devote the time to drive down there and back each week. The community that formed in our car pool was wonderful, and we had many fabulous conversations on the ride down and back. I do miss the conversations. I keep this shirt at my parents' house to wear when I am helping out there. I had a picture of the back, which features sponsorships, but somehow that picture vanished from my phone. I featured my other season at MUSL in T-shirt #207. This shirt is from the next year: 2008.
MORE BLOG RECAP
I devoted myself to some blog recap yesterday, detailing the number of page views I have received and which posts are the most popular. These facts are very interesting to me, and I feel the need to roundup the statistics from time to time.
I have also discussed my categories recently, so I will not go over that again, but I will draw your attention to the categories along the right side of the page. They are hot links to open all the pages labeled with that category. I am happy with my recent addition of the cover gallery category, which collects all the posts in which I have many comic book covers in a gallery, but I also included a couple of related ones (such as the Night Film "movie" posters) and any post with more than three pieces of comic book cover art.
I have some new categories to which I need to add posts, such as relaxing and sassy women. But today is not the day to attend to my categories. I will explore this content again soon. One thing I must update is my LIST of top ten favorite blog posts category. There are some new candidates. I may need to change it to a top twenty (especially since it currently contains 12 entries anyway).
THE GOOGLE SEARCH
The other day I decided to try a Google search because I wanted to see if my blog was the first result for "365 T-shirts blog." It is the first search. But the search produced some other interesting results.
There are other blogs of similar content.
365 Days > 365 T-shirts article about Andi from La Fraise
His name is Andi, he lives in UK, he is graphic designer and he has a funny/crazy challenge:wearing a different shirt each day and then give them to charity. laFraise couldn’t miss the opportunity of providing him shirts and making an interview to get to know about this project. And of course we will talk about it again at the time he gives the shirts to charities (la Fraise, 2013).Here's the actual blog: 36t5.
Of course, there's several companies selling shirts on a daily basis, like Teefury, which I have featured before in T-shirt #23: Planet of the Snapes.
I love how the Internet fuels new an inventive ways to be an entrepreneur.

RIPT Apparel gave away 365 T-shirts to a lucky contest winner earlier this year:
DON’T DO LAUNDRY FOR A YEAR! RIPT’S 365 SHIRT GIVEAWAY STARTS TODAY!
I was impressed to find a guy named Dave, who has Crohn's Disease and survived brain cancer, who did the T-shirt project in 2010. He received many donations to reach his goal of 365. Hmmmmm, donations....
Dave's Daily T-shirts Blog
Dave made a video showing all his 365 T-shirts in three minutes. A very cool idea!!
There's also a defunct blog that only made it to seven shirts -- 365 Days, 365 Different shirts -- and the blog page features a link that goes nowhere, so apparently, he didn't make it.
That's just the first page of the Google search. Maybe in a future blog, I will delve deeper. For now, that's a day's work. See you tomorrow.
Though before I go, I wanted to feature this picture on a day when it is prominent. My parents and I went to the Cornwell's Turkeyville Dinner Theatre Christmas show last week. Here's the photo.
