Dash Media: To be awesome, PIMP.

Dash Media? They’re so awesome. I became gay because of them.

– Oscar Wilde on Dash Media

Poldo made some pretty nice points on how we could make it as an awesome blog network. And being shamed by his entry (I am never really a team player), I promise to post some entries here every now and then regarding Dash Media and how awesome we are. Because we at Dash Media may not be as famous as Brian George Lindemann, but we are masturbatory fodder.

First off, let me just inform you that Dash Media has already been soft launched, and even though some pages aren’t still up (Marco the site guy, I’m talking to you), the response has been quite overwhelming. unfortunately, Dash Media’s going through some hosting problems right now, but it’ll be fixed asap. It better be.

In line with this, I ask this from the Dash Media people (What do we call ourselves? Dashers? Dash Media-ers? Dashings? Badashers?) to keep on pimping The Dash! You can start by posting about the community every now and then, and when you find an entry that you feel is interesting, don’t just comment on it, pimp the article on your blog! It’ll raise our Google Page Rank and make us AdSense types richer, or something SEO-ish like that.


And seeing Poldo’s sweet modified Dash Media badge, I also decide to make some of my own and share it with you guys. Because I’m generous like that.





The Photoshop .psd file can be downloaded here if you feel you can do better.

Also, I invite you to check out the cool Dash Media RSS thingie on my sidebar. I’m not putting that to prevent people from going to the main site, but to increase awareness on the network and for me to better keep track on the latest posts. If you want that on your sidebar, you can copy and paste this code on your sidebar:


<script src="https://feeds.feedburner.com/DashMedia-noisy?format=sigpro" type="text/javascript" ></script><noscript><p>Subscribe to RSS headline updates from: <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/DashMedia-noisy"></a><br/>Powered by FeedBurner</p> </noscript>


One last thing: are part of Dash Media because we have awesome content. To make this network work we have to keep up the standards that got us accepted into the network in the first place.

Also, if you’re not part of The Dash, There will be a new round of submissions open this November. Just keep an eye on Dash Media, and submit your blog when it’s ready. Just be awesome, and you might be part of the most exciting, awesome, and masturbation-worthy blog network to hit the Philippine blogosphere.

    [quote comment="3590"]i tried that script thingy for my sidebar but it doesn't look anything like yours….mine's big and pink and awkward. not that i'm ashamed of it or anything. and yes, i'm talking about the sidebar feeds thing![/quote]

    Pink, big, awkward?

    Oh, your sidebar feeds? Dang!

  4. Ey Ade,

    Nobody's paying me diddly squat (Mikey I hope you fucking read this) to do this shit so… Screw you, I'm going home.

  5. Really smart. At least mommy blogs with agonizingly pink templates won't feel so terribly alienated by the choices.

    But I guess I'll have to pass this time. Text link good enough? :-p

  6. pwede pa ba sumali jan sa Dash Media? hehe..wala lang baka kako makalusot. 😀

  7. I'm stealing the grey one. Suits my color scheme really well. 😀

    *kisses*

  8. Dash Media, huh? Nifty.

    So what does it offer to members, some sort of BlogExplosion-esque goodies or somethin'?

    Oh yeah, love the green logo. Good job. 🙂

    [quote comment="3583"]Thanks so much for Gay-ifying our badge Ade. Awesome work, why don't you provide badge sizes people can use in their sidebars? These are quite big.[/quote]

    I was about to do THAT, but I was hit by a bad case of the lazy. I'm saving that for the next post.

  11. Thanks so much for Gay-ifying our badge Ade. Awesome work, why don't you provide badge sizes people can use in their sidebars? These are quite big.

  12. [quote comment="3569"]oh, i haven't gotten back at steel for his answer when you asked him if you moan…(winks at ade)[/quote]

    My super-auditory senses couldn't help but overhear you guys mention my name. I just wanna point out that I never moan, I utter deep guttural grunts.

    So you're behind all these tampered dash-media logos! Who's your big boss?!

    [quote comment="3563"]i've seen dashmedia but i dunno really what it is.[/quote]

    [quote comment="3568"]I like the pink 🙂 I've been hearing or reading about dashmedia for quite a while but haven't really gotten around to figure out what it is.

    I might do that soon.[/quote]

    Well, Dash Media is the newest and most exciting blog network in the Philippines, focused primarily on creating awesome content and creating a strong tight community.

    [quote comment="3564"]Come on, Ade…you didn't have to embarrass yourself because you're not a team player. 😉

    Also, I love your logos, especially the pink one. :mrgreen:[/quote]

    Thanks. It's been half a year since I quit my job as a graphic artist, nice to know that I still have the touch!

    But Marco, the site guy's original design still is the best.

  14. aba, and its complete with pre-testing! i am impressed (i leave it up to you how to interpret how i said it…hehehe)

    heniway, i'm loving the BADASHERS. its an immediate counter-action to those will accuse you of being homophobic. you'll also get the gay community. on this line, why not use the international symbol of gay pride as your dashmedia banner…the rainbow. you make a statement that you embrace diversity and that you are queer-friendly so that you get license to make jokes about gayness in general. a win-win situation, my friend!

    i hope i earned my lunch…or whatever it is that you offer to those who participate in this critical stage in dashmedia's life.

    oh, i haven't gotten back at steel for his answer when you asked him if you moan…(winks at ade)

  15. I like the pink 🙂 I've been hearing or reading about dashmedia for quite a while but haven't really gotten around to figure out what it is.

    I might do that soon.

  16. I'm loving the brown AND the pink. Thanks Ade!

  17. Come on, Ade…you didn't have to embarrass yourself because you're not a team player. 😉

    Also, I love your logos, especially the pink one. :mrgreen:

  18. one thing i love here is that smiley! hahaha. 🙂 and the picture's not that obscene.. hahaha.

    i've seen dashmedia but i dunno really what it is.

    ayun. daan.
