Meh

You should stop reading this post right now, go to meh.com and buy the latest offer! Or . . . you could check out the community and see if you’ve got what it takes to join meh. (You do.) I personally like the polls section. It’s worth perusing. What exactly is Meh you may ask. That is a very hard question to answer. It’s a daily deal site with a community attached with funnyish videos. It’s a hot mess.  Matt Rutledge started the site after he sold woot. I really appreciate the irreverence and the site changes it’s look and feel every day. Anti-branding!

Two or three internets ago, a few of us opened a weird site selling one thing a day, a bit of a side project for our staid wholesale business. It grew and a community formed around it. Can we turn back the clock and capture past glory or has the world moved on?

I love businesses that don’t take themselves too seriously. I also appreciate the real-time transparency in regards to how products are selling. (Screenshot of the analytics below.) Last but not least, check out ‘We Are Meh’ under the Themes section. Totally danceable!
