My dear Bearivist,
For all its anonymity and democracy, the Internets can be a difficult medium for expressing a pogonologic proclivity. As Beardivists, we are rarely inclined to much affectation or boasting; and thus our whiskers, which in the corporeal world are unmistakable, do at times go unnoticed by the online community. I am happy to report that the great minds at The Center for Beard Related Studies have devised a way around this unfortunate obstacle. I present to you the Beardivism Alumnus Badge:
With this emblem, you may now proudly declare your Beardivish perspective without overmuch fanfare or explanation, and spread awareness of the good word in the process. May this crest illuminate the dark, hairless reaches of cyberspace and be emblazoned upon even the meekest of whiskers, with much the same sort of symbolic significance as is presently sprouting from your chin (and less itchy).
Use is simple.
Simply copy the code:
<p style="text-align: center;"><a href="http://beardivism.com/welcome" target="_blank"><img alt="Beardivism Alumni Badge" src="https://beardivism.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/alumni-badge2-e1361563601714.png" width="150" height="151" /></a></p>
And paste it wherever HTML is allowed (the link leads back to the Beardivist Welcome manifesto).
We have, for example, pasted the code into a simple text widget in our (WordPress) sidebar. Implementation could not be easier. Please share the good word!
