Well, I’ve labored long and hard here, and after many aborted attempts at something moderately cool and awesome, I believe I’ve finally arrived at some stuff you might want to use to decorate your own blog home.
I call this shit swag. You can call it shit, or whatever you like. As I’m sure you’re aware and unsurprised, I don’t give a flying fuck. Anyway the idea here is this: I’ve spoken of the Rants Army as well as member club cards for many, many posts over the course of a year and a half. Then one day, bam! An idea, right there in my head. This doesn’t happen often.
First up, the Rants Army Blog Medallion. This is kind of like those funky NaNoWriMo things – whatever the hell those are – and the various bullshit awards people chain letter around the blogosphere. What do you have to do to earn this? Well, I’d ask that you subscribe to my blog, for one. Or possibly ask me nicely. Or you can click the fucking link and steal it all you want to. Be bold! But yeah, display it proudly on your own blog to show your Rants Pride. That, or blow it up into a dartboard size print…
Second, the oft-spoken but rarely-seen Rants Member Club Card. This has been immortalized by yours truly and documented in the “Things I Said Out Loud” Series. It goes to the notion of someone bitching about their day, and you reply Rantily, “Join the club, asshole.” Instead, now you can say, “Your member club card is on the way,” and when questioned, you can show them this. Some downloading, printing and folding required. Ask for help with scissors. Batteries not included in your toy but not required for this download.
