Shirt.Woot is a part of the deal website family. Woot started out in 2004 with the slogan "One Day, One Deal". Now they offer many deals every day under many subcategories like kids.woot, wine.woot, and home.woot. The newest addition to the family is sport.woot. But we’re here to talk about shirts.

In the deal-a-day spirit, Shirt.Woot features one new shirt every day. Woot shirts are not just cheap ($10-$15 + $5 shipping), they’re also nifty and ethically produced.From their FAQ: 
"Woot Tees are 100% cotton blank shirts. The designs are printed at Woot's own printing facility in our Carrollton, Texas headquarters. Although the people who make them do sweat occasionally, Woot Tees are produced in sweatshop-free conditions."

Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph is a young website run by a young dude. Taylor Jones is only 22, and the site is only 8 months old. Already they’ve made a big mark on the internet. The idea is simple.

Then you line up the old image with the location today as the background and take a new picture like this:

Cake Wrecks

Cake Wrecks is a humor blog I’ve been following for years. Since 2008, Jen Yates has been posting pictures of failed professional cakes with funny commentary.

Humble Indie Bundle

It’s a revolution in the video-game industry! It’s a charity! It’s a discount!! It’s HUMBLE INDIE BUNDLE! (*trumpet fanfare*)

What’s more: you can choose how much of that money goes to the humble bundle folks, directly to the developers, and to two nifty/nerdy non-profits.
