Thanks for the recycling love!

Strawberry cupcakes!

[I may not have re-made any tees recently, but I did make these strawberry cupcakes last week for my birthday party] My recent “How to customise & recycle your old t-shirts” post has received quite a lot of attention around the blogosphere, not quite to the levels of the Star Wars post (which made my server cry repeatedly), but still, a lot of people seemed to like it. I get a real buzz when people take the time to write about a post I’ve written, and it’s good to think that I might be responsible for someone hacking their tees to bits and making something cool out of it.

In no particular order, here’s some of the folks that have posted about the list (it has apparently had 38 retweets, but I can’t find a way of getting the full list).

I’m sure that isn’t all of them so apologies if you mentioned the post and I didn’t manage to catch it, if that’s the case list it in the comments please. I’m intending to do this kind of shoutout post for all my big list posts that I’ll be publishing in the future, and trust me, I’ve got a lot of them in the pipeline, with my current work schedule I’ll likely miss the Halloween themed ones, but people still like zombies at Christmas, right? If the benefits of a link-back are more likely to get people to post about my lists I’m okay with that, but I’d like to think that people will only write about something if they think it’s interesting and worth writing about.
