You Must Get It!

Note the website mentioned here, you must get, is no longer maintained.

It's been many months since I made my rash decision to purchase '' and in that time I've worked tirelessly to establish the 'you must get' empire.

It's now ready for you to use and enjoy, at an even better url than before:


You Must Get It is a place where you can show off the products you love, and see what other people are recommending.

Here's your six step plan to consumer bliss:

  1. Go here: YouMustGet.It
  2. Sign up!
  3. Follow some interesting users. Or follow me.
  4. Drag the 'favelet' into your bookmarks bar. (You may need to show your bookmarks bar first)
  5. Travel around the internet, finding all the products you love, and recommend them all, by clicking the 'must get' favelet
  6. Tell all your lucky lucky friends!

Get Rich By Being Greedy

Death to capitalist pigs, three cheers for Full Communism Now and all that -- but check out this feature that lets *you* rake in the affiliate dollars.

You can specify your Amazon affiliate ID in your user profile. Thereafter, any time you recommend a product at Amazon, we will use your affiliate ID. No matter what Amazon product link you provide we'll turn it into an affiliate link using your affilite ID.

At some sites (cough - pinterest - cough) they do something much nastier: they always use their affiliate ID for all Amazon links. In fact, even if you've already explicitly specified an affiliate ID they take your ID out and put theirs in! We don't do that.

Feeling Lazy?

And, there's one other feature that I quite like: the 'Feeling Lazy' button.

Too lazy to click around looking for things to buy? Click the Feeling Lazy button and you'll be taken to a new random product every 3 seconds.

(I also plan to add the 'Feeling Rich and Lazy' button, which will take you to random products, and randomly buy a few of them as it goes.)

So join you must get it today. Get involved. Be awesome.

Great products: Where are they?

Apart from scouring through every product at a site like Amazon, Ebay or Etsy, you can find some excellent curated lists at these sites:

Embed your own...

Also, you can embed a YouMustGetIt list of your own product recommendations by using these three lines of code:

<ul id="umg_list"></ul>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://YouMustGet.It/scripts/embed.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://YouMustGet.It/API/said/secretGeek/10?callback=umg_callback"></script>

(Substitute your own username in, and how many posts you want to see, in place of 'secretGeek' and '10' respectively)

The embedded stuff is still a work in progress, but should improve in the next few days.
