It’s a Bouncing Baby Blog!

I just launched my long-fantasized-and-procrastinated-about blog about my ridiculously large T-shirt collection!! Which keeps growing despite my repeated attempts to put a cap on it.

You can find it at Please let me know what you think, because it’s very much a work in progress.

  1. How fun to have a blog about T-shirts. Don’t we all have a weakness.


    • I’ve already heard from a couple of people who also have huge T-shirt collections that they don’t know what to do with — when they’re part of your history, it’s hard to just get rid of them, and I’m here to testify that if you’ve got a lot of them, they don’t wear out. Maybe I’m starting a new subgenre, the T-shirt memoir? (Likely someone else has already started it. I’ll probably run into them shortly . . .)

    Susanna, I too have a serious T-shirt addiction. It started when I entered running road races and triathlons then when I started traveling a lot and wanted T-shirt’s to remember where I’d been. Over the years I’m looking at well over a hundred and like you have been trying to decide what to do with them besides storing them in multiple boxes. I look forward to hearing more about your trials and tribulations regarding T-shirts. Thanks, Edward Pachico

    Didn’t see a place to comment at the T-shirt post. My T-shirt purchase and storage system is way less developed. I have a pile of maybe 20, 30 in a drawer. I wear one a day, launder them weekly, and they go back in the drawer in the order in which I pile them after folding from the dryer. So the order (and color sequence) of the seven or eight varies slightly week to week. Today I’m wearing one made my a neighbor — a black T-shirt that showed a white drawing of Minnehaha Falls down the street, which I have on under a gray plaid collared shirt. A daring combo, I know.

    Great start! Aesthetically pleasing website! Will you enter a post on individual tt-shirts with the story behind each one? This is a great idea, and could turn into a book! I’ll stay tuned …

    • Thanks, Lynn! I’ve written the first 6 posts already, and they’re all on the long side (about the length of this intro). That’s partly because I’m setting the stage — what I was doing, what I was involved in, and how those T-shirts came into my life. Some future posts, focused on particular shirts, are going to be a lot shorter. Do you think I should commit to a regular publication schedule, e.g., weekly or semi-weekly? I never have, but I can see the appeal, not least because I do better with deadlines.
