Happy Leap Day!

Celebrate! It's February 29th!! Leap Day! Or Leap Year Day! Or something like that.

This is a little doodle that I've been hanging on to for some time now. I want to develope it into a "Blog Hopper" logo. Maybe something that I could have printed on t-shirts and sell.

Gail first suggested the idea to me (I'm happy to give her credit). She's the only one to have seen this thus far. My idea is to some how illustrate the frog leaping from one blog page to another. I ready like how the frog turned out. I just need to get clear in my head how to best illustrate the various connecting blogs sites that he/she is hopping around on. In addition I want to add some words like "Bonified Blog Hopper," or something like that, to the image.

Any ideas? Would you buy a t-shirt like that? Would you help put my daughter through college? (I might as well ask while I'm here asking.)

I um, wouldn't buy a t-shirt... but an idea is to take lily pads and make draw them like stylized letters that spell b-l-o-g.

A button for blogs might be cute, and maybe some code to take the clicker hopping onto a random blog.

Heh...maybe leaping from one computer to another, saying "bloggit, bloggit"? Right, lame.

I don't wear t-shirts, but I'd buy a button.

I'll add your daughter to the list of folks to remember when I win that danged lottery.

What a great day to reveal Bloggie (that's my nick-name for 'him'.)

I would buy a T shirt and like the two ideas from Jennifer and K.

Off to do some 'hopping' right now!

I love it. I tend to not wear t-shirts, but sweatshirts, especially hoodies, would be fantastic. Sorry I can't put your daugter through college; I'am still working on putting myself through college.

I'm not a t shirt person but a coffe mug, absolutely!

I like the frog, but his smile is kinda scary. What fun! And I like the coffee mug idea.

Brandi said...

I wish I had some cleaver ideas like you and the other commentors, but I don't(but I do like T-shirts).

Tismee2 said...

coffee mugs - yep that's another one for me!

Wow, your doodles are awesome. Can you share the talent? I can write for days and my drawings, well they are stick people. I would buy a shirt if you made kid sizes, my daughter and her friend want matching shirts.

Hi Rick...

use http://www.cafepress.com to create a store and put him and the rest of your work on all of the items (and more) already mentioned above and sell it. You would do great...and I'd get a jersey t-shirt most likely.

I love it, and I would buy that T-shirt!

Maybe it could look like he's about to step on "Next Blog>>>"

Gotta go for now, will think about ideas.

I like kyddryn's idea of the lilly pads & the frog saying bloggit. I think he's very cute & I would totally buy a t-shirt - I live in them!
