Thank you, Field Notes

Yesssssss! Another nice package showed up at my door, this time goodies from Field Notes (a DDC/Coudal product). Now let me start off by saying, I am a fairly early adapter in terms of new technologies and gadgets. I twitter from my Blackberry, and I’ve even updated my Facebook status using my Wii (just once, because I could). But there is no better feeling than jotting down ideas in a good old notebook with your favourite pen or pencil. I love it. Field Notes sent me over a stack of little notebooks. Beautifully simple packaging. Blank, lined, graph paper, several styles. Pencils, rubber bands, even a calendar. Thanks you guys, they will be put to good use!

    I find it remarkable that you receive such exciting gifts, it gives a gentleman ideas. I just recently found your very nice site and I’ve been going back over past entries and besides the above I saw the sunglasses recently and the Hush Puppies shoes not too long ago. It really makes me consider starting my own similar website in the hopes that I myself might one day receive such benefits. It would be too hard though, I figure after further thought. I have a different type of website already and that only requires a monthly update and yet still I find difficult there, so keeping on top of a site such as yours is near unimaginable.

    Anyway, to cut all my thoughts short here: your site is really great, you’re surely deserving of the gifts for all your hard work, and these Field Notes items are very nice looking, particularly the calendar.

  • oh snap, these really neat. hmm i might have to look into it.. reminds me i got to go pick up some new note books loosing space in paper…

  • Congrats on more free shiz!

  • Field notes would be great if they weren’t graph paper.

  • ^ they’re not all graph paper – they come in blank sheets, lined, or graph

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
