Check out our awesome, new 30-second commercial! Thanks to McAfee Productions for such an awesome advertisement. It will be shown just before the start of each Bowling Green Hot Rods game–our local minor league baseball team–on the right field scoreboard.

As you might have noticed, this blog has been–to put it gently–lacking for quite some time now. Well, we’ve finally gained a renewed vigour and a sense of what we would like our blog to become. Like any corporate blog, this blog will be one of several avenues where we will broadcast our lastest news and promotions with our clients. But, in addition to that, we aim to convey the warm, fun, and family-like personality of our company. Hopefully, you’ll see what I mean by that in the near future.
Now, a quick tour around the new layout. Along the top of the site are the categories and sub-catagories for all the entries on our blog. To only see entries from a particular category, simply click on that category! Along the right side you’ll find a search field to search for specific terms or phrases in our previous posts, an archive listed by date, as well as feed of our most recent posts on Twitter! Keep your eyes open for new features and enhancements as the site evolves.
The old adage “April showers bring May flowers” has never been truer here in Bowling Green. The spring of 2009 was extremely wet and even approached soggy! Climate data by the University of Kentucky indicates rain on seventeen of April’s thirty calendar days. April’s 4.4 cumulative inches of rain resulted in some very lush (read: overgrown) lawns and gorgeous spring flowers all over the SouthCentral Kentucky area.
Similarly, BlueCotton was showered with several significant press recognitions and appearances this spring. The April 2, 2009 USA Today Lifestyle cover featured the Favorite t-shirt survey we conducted back in February.
Mike was interviewed for Business Week’s publication Small Biz. In the April/May issue, “Turn On, Tune In, Tweet Out,” Mike discusses Twitter’s impact on our customer interaction. Twitter is a positive addition to our customer service tools, and we enjoy using the 140 character limit to engage customers. You can read the article here.
Through April, We’ve been using TwitPic to send photos of customer t-shirts hot off the dryer, actively issuing daily coupon codes for a free custom t-shirt, and tweeting discount codes up to 50% off the total order. We’re continuing our Twitter campaign through the summer and have some special BlueCotton and Twitter-themed t-shirts on deck to give away very soon.
We’re confident this publicity shower will push us to blossom through the summer!
