The Miley Cyrus Foam Finger

Miley Cyrus Foam FingerIn case you are living under a rock, Miley Cyrus made a… (how to word this nicely)… (ahhhhhh, ummmmm, wow)… UNIQUE appearance on Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.  Anyone that thinks her performance wasn’t planned out is absolutely crazy.  In 2013, if people are talking about you (good, bad or ugly) then you are still relevant.  How do you overshadow a NSYNC reunion and officially kill your alter-ego [TV personality] Hannah Montana?  Strip down, do a dirty dance and use a un-likeable foam finger!  There it is… How can we NOT mention the foam finger?  Being the home of the Original Like Button Foam Finger, it just seems like an apropos topic.   Basically Miley Cyrus is our new model for what NOT to do with your Like Finger!  If you can remember this one simple line: “What Would Miley Cyrus Do” with her Like Finger? or simply WWMCD?  Then just do the exact opposite (see enclosed picture)!  #WWMCD!

The Valentine’s Day Plan

Like This!!It’s Valentine’s Day!  You could go out and spend $60 on a nice dinner then $30 more at the movies plus popcorn, and soda… Now if you are a new couple, this is probably the best avenue to go, show your more frugal side down the road and call it creativity (works like a charm)!  I will call that option, option A… Option B (my plan for today) is going to cost $18.  Let’s see $18 vs $90… Who doesn’t LIKE the sound of this one?  Make dinner at home!  I purchased two 4oz. lobster tails for $4.99 each at the local grocery store plus a nice slab of tender sirloin steak for at just $7.99/lb (came out to just under $9), and cut it in half for two 8oz portions.  Tonight, Mr. Romantic is going to boil the lobster tails, serve them with butter and cook on the grill the steak (yes, despite the snowy conditions outside here in Pittsburgh), I will add a potato packet (onions, potatoes and some seasoning–items we had at the house already), and some frozen green beans and the beverages of our choice, and voila… Dinner is Served! To follow, and this is my helpful tip of the day, we are going to watch the movie Flight staring Denzel Washington for free, yes FREE!  Here’s how I scored the free rental. Today only, if you use the code SWEET at any Red Box movie rental kiosk you can get a movie rental for absolutely nothing (not even tax)!  I will just add some microwave popcorn and some Valentine’s Day candy to the soiree.  This V-Day plan of action is a definite LIKE!

Mayans: Game Over

Mayan End of the WorldDecember 21st, 2012… You know, the date the world ends.  Since the world is going to end, we figured there is no need for any extra LikeFinger inventory, might as well sell as much now, buy some margaritas and enjoy this last week on planet earth.  Soooo, from now through December 21st, anyone that uses the code MAYANS when checking out will receive FREE SHIPPING!  We ship fast (same day in most instances) but if you wait to buy your LikeFinger until December 20th, wellllll don’t claim you didn’t know the world was going to end before your awesome Like Button Foam Finger arrived.

One last note, if the world does end on December 21st… What time zone will it end?  Will it be when it turns the 21st in Tokyo,  Cairo, Paris, Pittsburgh, Las Vegas?  Should I bother to set my TiVo?

LikeFinger Meets Its Roots

Today, Tim (co-creator of the LikeFinger) and I rehashed our college glory years around the Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP for the local nomads) campus. We went to HB Culpeppers and took full advantage of $5 draft pitchers, Steelers football and $5 Pittsburgh-style sandwiches.  After “lunch” (is it really fair to call it lunch when it last 3 hours) we took photos along downtown Indiana, PA (Philadelphia Street to be exact) followed by a brief 4 hour stop inside of The Coney for food, brews and more fun. As soon as we walked into The Coney, Tim did his magic and talked our waitress into putting up a Like Button Foam Finger in the middle of the bar.  It’s an amazing center-piece (guys have centerpieces in bars) if I might say so myself!  To sum up our day, we did a minor bar crawl around IUP, worked on things together for LikeFinger.com, drank ate way too much beer food, and watched Tim complain about how little Mike Wallace and Jimmy Graham were used today (fantasy football).

Welcome to LikeFinger the Blog

Dave at the Liberty Bell

I really enjoy learning about history. Do you "Like" visiting historical sites?

I wanted to welcome you to our new blog! My name is Dave Pierce and I am one of the co-founders of LikeFinger.com. I wanted to share a little history about the site and why exactly we created these unique products, including the Original Like Button Foam Finger.  The idea came from sitting in my office at work (I am employed by a cyber school) as one of my co-workers “Liked” a project that a student had recently completed.  I saw this and thought “why can’t we just “Like” everything we want in life?”…

Long story short, Tim Shick (other co-owner) and I sat down together at Culpeppers in Indiana, PA (we both attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania together so it was a natural meeting spot) in March of 2012. At this meeting we set forth a goal of creating a fun line of reasonably priced products that people could use to easily “Like” something anywhere they wanted at any time.

The first product we created is the Like Button Foam Finger.  This is perfect for that person who enjoys taking pictures or shooting videos, especially those who enjoy sharing photos or videos online using social media websites. No longer do you have to wait for your friends to “Like” your photos, you can tell your friends that you “Like” them as well! The second product we created is the sticky notepad.  Just like my co-worker, you can easily and quickly stick a LikeFinger note on almost anything imaginable, PLUS it’s customizable as well!  The third product we came up with, is our very sheik and cool looking Like Button t-shirt!  We really hope you guys enjoy these products and have fun with them!  Let us know if you have any ideas or creative suggestions.  Thanks again!
