Flying Trilobite on Facebook Pages & Poll!

If you are a fan of The Flying Trilobite and my artwork, now you can add The Flying Trilobite to your Facebook page. Just click below the image in my sidebar, the image below, or right here, and it will whisk you off into that magical Facebook land of zombies, creatures hatching from eggs, and sage prophet-programs telling you which superhero you most resemble.

If you are unfamiliar with Facebook pages, it adds a tiny icon in your Facebook profile declaring you are a fan - of celebrities, scientists, organisations, museums, artists obsessed with mythical flying trilobite fossils, television shows, video games, and more. It's another way for me to get some news out to people who frequent my blog, or communicate about issues not directly tied to my posts.

And hey, you get a teeny-tiny flying trilobite fossil sitting on your Facebook page, next to Carl Sagan, Super Mario, and Nelly Furtado.


I've added a poll in my sidebar that will stay open the next two weeks. Some of my favourite blog features are themed-posts on regular days. Of Two Minds has their Sunday Funnies; A Blog Around the Clock features ClockQuotes throughout the week, as well as picks from science news stories; Page 3.14 has photos from ScienceBlogs every week, Life Before Death has photos every Friday; you see where I'm going?

Would it be helpful to my readers of this blog to know that a certain day is a good time to stop in to see the art? I would likely be posting at least one original, fully new piece per month. I am considering putting up details or up-close shots of paintings the rest of the time.

You can click more than one option, if you like. Depending on which ones you pick, you have an opportunity to confuse me.

Please take a moment to do the poll! It closes on April 9th, appallingly early in the morning, eastern standard time.

Art on Mondays is a good idea, Glendon! Honestly though, I often don't even know which day it is, so I usually check The Flying Trilobite at random!

As long as you are uploading fantastic art at fairly regular intervals, I'm happy!

See you on facebook...

Random pretty much describes it!

Mondays just fit my schedule fairly well. I thought it might spike traffic on a particular day if people knew something specific was happening that day, and I could prattle on about whatever else in between.

Thanks for your vote, Peter!

Thanks, Traumador!

Everyday, wow, I must look like a slacker. I mean, I'm not travelling across a whole country being chased by green meanies or anything.

traumador said...

No way... You publish more than me these days ;p

I only have time to READ the innerweb everyday, not write on it... I know how limited time effects these sorts of things.

Besides this way when something is up its a surprise and make the surfing day all the more "narly"... okay sorry my inner surfer dude coming out there.

Hmm, a good arguement against publishing the art on a particular day.

And you know, to be all science-y and proper about it Traumador, one good argument can still outweigh a popular vote. We'll see...
