IAMTHETREND In 2011… and Thank You’s!

Thank You!

With the end of the year coming to close I wanted to take a few seconds to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone that read Iamthetrend.com this year and/or suggested the site to a friend. This year readership cracked 300,000 visitors, with close to 1 million page views which is something that I am more than proud of and can’t thank you guys enough for all the support throughout the year.

Also huge thank you’s to all the clothing companies that were kind enough to send in tees over the course of the year. There are just way too many to list, but I really want to say it is appreciated and I look forward to reviewing and checking out to tees from all of you as well as new companies in 2011.

Lastly huge thanks to everyone that has advertised on IAMTHETREND over the course of the year. Without you guys this site would be much more difficult to run and manage. I can proudly say that ad spots remained sold out for the entire year, with a waiting list already for next year which can be gotten on at: BUYSELLADS. 🙂

Reflection on 2010

For myself 2010 was one hell of a roller coaster ride with some extreme ups and downs. Most importantly this year I was able to marry the women of my dreams and we moved into our first home together. IAMTHETREND saw traffic increase 50%, and I launched my first company called Pong Deck. I was also lucky enough to be hired to do some outside sales work with Threadbird Screen Printing. On a sour note, my 2007 Ford Edge basically took a giant crap, a gigantic tree fell down in my backyard, narrowly missing my house and my dog, Lucy blew out her knee and requires surgery. Bummer. Overall though I must say it was a great year and have high hopes for 2011.

IAMTHETREND in 2011

If you have been following me on TWITTER you may have seen me talking about revamping the site a bit. Well Zach at Blue Tide Productions is hard at work at IATT 4.0, or at least that’s what he tells me! Ha!

Without giving away too many secrets about the new site here is some of what you can expect.

  • A cleaner more concise layout
  • Ability for users to submit their own posts directly to the site
  • New Premium Content section. This section will be filled with articles written directly for T-Shirt company owners. It will also contain exclusive deals for discounts on material that clothing companies need most. (stickers, buttons, screen prints, hosting, etc)
  • More IATT.TV videos. If you havent already make sure to subscribe to the IAMTHETREND Youtube Channel
  • More posts in the Wares, Music and Art Sections. These are all sections that have taken a major backseat to the clothing section. Although IATT will always be more heavily weighted on tees, I really want to start getting some more posts up in those sections. That being said I am always on the lookout for guest authors whom would like to post in those sections or any section of the site. You can email me at info [at] iamthetrend.com if your interested
  • In Closing

    I wish all of you nothing but the best moving forward in 2011 and thank you all for a great 2010. For myself I feel like 2011 is going to be a huge year, and I hope the same for you as well!

    I also will be gone from The beginning of the year until January 6th at the World Series of Beer Pong for Pong Deck, so posts are probably not going to resume their regularity till around then.

    Have a great New Year!
