YOU WANT THE TRUTH?! Oh...OK, no problem, you can handle the truth. Truth is...I've been busy.  We are really trying to promote this Trop Rock / Wounded Warrior Project promo.  It's a great cause, and one of my favorite t-shirt designs and music genres.  Thanks again Jimmy Pirate over at The Shore Radio along with the good folks at Trop Starz & Tiki Barz for including Snoloha.  It's crazy how much time goes into just

One of my New Year's resolutions was to have a better attitude toward social-notworking...I mean social-networking.  Well, as with most resolutions that people make, I'm pretty much failing. Facebook, for Snoloha...yeah I get it.  It works, and I'll still use it.  I like the connection with customers. Linkedin...I actually don't mind.  I use it for more industry type of connections. Twitter...I'm hanging on by a thread. Google+...that place is a ghost town. Tumblr...eh, I kinda

Once again, Seth pretty much sums up exactly why it is that I blog as well. Doing it wrong, relentlessly According to this post by Neil Patel, I blog incorrectly--missing on at least 7 of his twelve rules. On purpose. I'm not writing to maximize my SEO or conversion or even my readership. I'm writing to do justice to the things I notice, to the ideas in my head and to the people who choose

I've decided to go back and re-visit some of my favorite books sitting on my shelf (that Savannah thinks is a riot to pull down and spread across the entire house).  As I'm going back re-reading (Seth Godin's "The Dip", "We Are All Weird", "Purple Cow" and "Tribes"...along with Hugh MacLeod's "Ignore Everybody") I'm reminded of why I launched this brand and how I want to continue growing it.  I realized that so many of

I just finished reading the Steve Jobs biography.  It is one of the most fascinating books I've read.  Jobs was a difficult and perplexing man, but there are more earmarks in that book than any other business / marketing / branding book that I've ever read...and this is a biography. Though I do not share much in common with Jobs when it comes to technology, his temper, how he treated people and is diets (he

It's funny...regardless of how much I fight it, the end of the year always brings about reflecting on all that has happened the past 12 months.  In my case, I go back a bit further to the end of 2010 because of some things I was working on that were part of 2011's anticipated direction. Usually, I do a pretty good job highlighting and celebrating strides the brand has made, but not this time.  This

It's been a bit of a stressful roller-coaster ride with this new website. What we had anticipated to be a fairly quick turn-around ended up taking MUCH longer than I had hoped. But, it's done...kind of. There are still some products to add and content to include, but for the most part it's done, I'd say 92.5% finished. It's no secret that I have a love / hate relationship with the internet and social media.

After my blog post the other day, 'Corona goes Snoloha', I was a bit disappointed with myself when I stepped back and thought about it and re-read it. I said it felt like they 'beat me to the punch'. That's what bums me out. I'm not the type to sit back and wait, or over-analyze something. It's usually the opposite. When I have an idea, I run with it and launch it. Sometimes it works

With the passing of Steve Jobs, the Internet and TV are chock full of quotes, interviews, thoughts, prayers, YouTube clips and gratitude for what Jobs brought to the world. I like what Seth had to say: Steve devoted his professional life to giving us (you, me and a billion other people) the most powerful device ever available to an ordinary person. Everything in our world is different because of the device you're reading this on.

As you know, there's a new and improved Snoloha website in the works...and it's almost done. We are planning on launching the new homepage and blog late next week. The store will be the following week. The new design looks great, and I can't wait to unveil it. I know there are some of you patiently waiting to buy some new Snoloha gear, so thank you for the continued patience. However, if you just can't

Don't forget about the 'Create a Snoloha Scene' contest: Normally when I run a contest it has to do with painting a Snoloha picture with words. But this time, I'm taking it a step further and really making you work for a pretty cool Snoloha prize pack. This time...it's painting a picture visually, perhaps with paint even. If you'd like a chance to win a Snoloha Temperature Regulating Device, various Beverage Holders, along with a

I've been patiently waiting for my website to let me know the status of it's offline vacation. It hasn't returned any voicemails, and it's refusing to check Twitter, Facebook and email. I'm beginning to worry that it decided to "Quit It's Job, Buy a Ticket, Get a Tan, Fall in Love, Never Return"...yes, that is already a t-shirt. Or, what if, like when I ran off to the Caribbean when I needed an escape from
