Out of the Box - UPDATED



(Info about Monogram Chick giveaway at the bottom of this post!!!)



So, I need your advice.

Well, I already did it, so it's too late to advise me against it.
But I'm up for discussion.

I've posted about what people put on their cars...
and discussed what I might be willing to put on mine.

Well, I did it. I put the first sticker on my new-to-me car I've had for four months.

I got a car decal from the Monogram Chick.


Monogram Chick




And, I didn't get my initials.

Wanna see what I got?

















Yep, the name of my blog.
On my car.
for all to see.

Do you think this is a good idea?
Or a bad idea?

Will all my neighbors Google it?
Will the ladies in carpool?
The stranger behind me in the Starbucks drive-thru?



Isn't it CUTE though?
Look at the pretty aqua color!!

She designed it JUST for me.
I love it!
It makes me happy to see it.


Tell me what you think of this BOLD move.
Genius?
Or Stupid?

It's possible no one will notice...


Monogram Chick

I just realized she's having a giveaway!! You have to check it out.

Hmmm. You might get a Google look up or few... but it looks pretty cool.

Andrea said...

Super cute!!

I am thinking that people will think it's a business. I know I would usually forget what it was by the time I get home. I am forgetful like that.

Are you wanting more blog traffic?

Sandi McBride said...

I LOVE IT! But here's the bad part...you should have put the actual address somewhere on there! Then everyone would be forced to write it down, go home and check on your site! Well Rhea, maybe they can just google you...think I'll go see if it works. I'll let you know!

IT WORKED! FIRST TIME!!!
Sandi
ps
And to think I doubted Google! What was I thinking?

Angie's Spot said...

Very cute! And I have been known to Google things I see on cars, so it could happen. Honestly, it probably won't bring droves of people from search engines, but a few new hits will probably come to fruition. :-)

Britt said...

I have to agree with Andrea .. most will probably think it's a business.

It is SUPER cute!

All Things BD said...

I think it's awesome, but now you can't say anything bad about your neighbors in case they google you and find your blog. :)

Jen said...

I think that it is an awesome idea. You should totally keep it. People can already Google for your blog so I don't see it as a big deal. I have my blog on my business cards. It is just a way to promote yourself a little more and you totally should.

Ellie said...

I love it! It's awesome!

Kat said...

I did not know they could make car decals that are not initials!! I want one. I wonder what they could do with mine. There is nothing to outline. And I'd want my blog address. Or something. Oh, so cool. I just placed a huge order with them yesterday - got lots of Christmas gifts.

~Trish~ said...

Well its nothing permenant so if you start getting freaks...remove it :) Thank for stopping by my blog when I was featured last week :) I'm still trying to get back to everyone who commented!!

Living on the Spit said...

You totally rock and I love your decal. Googling is the best...what would I do with out my google or my dogpile...go google that!

I hate when people put crazy bumper stickers on their car.. but that is super cute!! it's only a bad idea if you would be upset about the neighbor, school teachers, preacher finding your blog.

Valarie said...

I think it will be fine! Its super cute no matter what. Just don't be talking bad about the neighbors and the moms in the carpool line and all will be right with the world. :)

carrielt said...

I don't think there's anything wrong with it!

jenboglass said...

I like it. It's super cute. Stop worrying already.

Mama Dawg said...

I love it. Even if you don't get any hits from it, it's cute.

I want one!!!!!!

CrystalChick said...

I don't have any kind of bumper stickers on mine. I do like reading funny ones on others though.

Yours is really sweet!! Yes, good idea.
I think you'll be getting more visitors when people find out how much fun you are!

Amy said...

It's very unique! I love it :D

scargosun said...

i LOVE it!

I really like her stuff too. I am thinking about getting a lunch bag for myself.

Heather said...

I love it too! Just saw your comment over at SITS roll call and wanted to wish you loads of luck!!

:)

Cheers!

Susie said...

It looks great! I think anyway that you can get the word out about your great blog is worth a shot!!

Monogramchick said...

I love it on the car! Rhea, you were so fun and easy to work with...thank you!

gingela5 said...

I like it! It's definitely one way of marketing your blog! I've thought about doing something like that too but I'm lazy! :) I'm sure people will google it at some point!

Ashley said...

I love it! I'm sure some people may look you up but hopefully just the harmless ones.

Cristin said...

It's cute as hell!

mommaof4wife2r said...

Bryan said...

April said...

Meaghan said...

Shannon said...

LOVE it! Very one-of-a-kind (like you!) :)

dddiva said...

Awesome, I want one now- as soon as I get an actual logo that is. LOL
Good luck with the job interview with the big bosses (read about it at SITS).

Lula! said...

I. Love. It.

Because I am all about some personalization AND self-promotion. It's a win-win. Oh yes, it is.

I just slapped a big ol' "G" on my van. The Georgia "G." But it's a magnet...a big one...so I can take it off at the end of football season. My husband isn't big on permanent stickers on the car.

If someone steals my "G" I'm going to get out my gun.

sassy stephanie said...

I love it, but don't think I would have done it for fear that peeps I don't want knowing about my blog would know about my blog. But, most peeps prolly won't even realize what it "is".

Insane Mama said...

I LOVE IT! I'm going to get one too. Yes, you will get some google searches

Indy said...

So cool. Let us know if you get more hits as a result. Love the design.

Lane Boyz Mom said...

I LOVE the idea and that is soooooo cute!!

Katie said...

Genius. You'll def get some google hits & who wouldn't love your blog?

Elaine A. said...

How cute! I think it's an awesome idea. You are brilliant! : )

Justine said...

Oh, I totally love it!!!!!!!! Wish I could do it! But hey, while you were at it, you should have added the .blogspot.com to it!

Justine :o )

Captain Dumbass said...

That is awesome. I'd love one but I really want to get rid of my gas guzzling man van so then I'd have nowhere to stick it and it would get lost and I'd be really cheesed when I got a new car and then couldn't find the damn sticker again. Whew!

├╝berburber said...

you go, girl! blog pride. now, when's the tattoo happening??!!

Life With My 3 Boybarians said...

I would be afraid that people would leave comment about my Chicago driving in Iowa on my blog.

Then I might have to road rage, because I'd get the message right away on my iphone, so I'd know who was sending it.

No way would I put my blog on my car. But I like my privacy too much. and I like my small readership. and I'm kind of a crazy driver.

but it looks cute!

Casey's trio said...

Very cute...I think you might possibly get some google searches from it so it's only bad if you don't want to be found:)

goodfather said...

I will NEVER allow a bumper sticker to be pasted onto any of my vehicles, for as long as I live.

But a super-cool transparent decal on the back window, that looks TOTALLY AWESOME?? Yeah!!

I like the artwork, and you are sure to get hits from people googling from their iPhones :D.

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca said...

If you are okay with other people within your neighborhood and circle discovering your blog and reading about your family and thoughts, then that should be ok.

Anyway, that's a very nice decal!!!

blissfullycaffeinated said...

It's cute!

Live.Love.Eat said...

It came out really nice! BUT like one person said, the only bad thing is you can't say anything bad about your neighbors now. Well, that's not really a bad thing because that isn't something you would do anyway, right ? :) I am sure you will get googled. It's definitely an intriguing phrase.
