Startup Schwag #6 (First For Me)

I know I've been slack on my reviews this week, but I'm waiting for a few products to ship to me. I did receive my first t-shirt from Startup Schwag. If you haven't heard about Startup Schwag it's a great opportunity for those of you who (like me) like to learn about new startup companies and receive products promoting them.

It's not free. A monthly subscription is $14.95/month plus s&h, but for someone like me it's well worth it. Each month you'll get 1 t-shirt with the logo of a startup company a long with a few stickers and sometimes other schwag from other companies. You can click here to see the stickers that were included in this month's schwag bag. The stickers were for SocialThing!, Dawdle, Formspring (which I will definitely be using), New China Career, and TradeVibes.

The t-shirt is a t-shirt. is a video broadcast website that allows anyone with a camera to set up their own global broadcast. There's no size limit to your audience, and you can set yup your stream in less than 2 minutes. You can create a channel on Ustream or you can broadcast through your own website.

I love the shirt. It's bright yellow, and I love bright colors.

I'll take a better photo when I'm thinking about it. I just snapped this one real quick. I've cared more about wearing it than actually taking photos of it. I've already worn it twice since receiving it a couple weeks ago, and it'll go into my favorite shirts drawer. It's one of those shirts that makes people stop to ask me "what's that?" I love stuff like that! My friends all call it my "geek wear", but hey whateva! I love my geek wear! My friends care more about stuff like wine clubs. I'm perfectly happy with a "schwag club", and if that makes me geeky, right on!

I found your blog through GeekySpeaky & when I read this post my kitty ears tingled. I'm all about free/allmost free nifty stuff! I've never heard of Startup Schwag before. (Guess I'm not as big of a geek as everyone seems to think ehh?)
Next month when I have some extra cash I'm gonna join. Glad I found your blog & glad I found this post! ROCK ON!!

PS- Are there any other sites like Startup Schwag floating around the web that I'm missing out on? I'd love to check them out!

I love it! The second I spotted Startup Schwag I had to join! I would love to find other sites like it, but so far it's the only one I've found of it's kind...geek wise that is. It reminds me of the geek version of a candle of the month or coffee of the month club! lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
