So what's been dominating all my time??

Earlier this year, my business partner sent me a Word document full of "kids eat free" offers for the Austin area. He'd been keeping it on his computer, updating it every now and again, and then emailing it to friends and family when he made changes. I took one look at that and had an idea.

I took his word document and was off to the races. I turned it into a web site with searchable listings, including participating locations, and Google maps. Over the last couple of months, I've been using this new site as a way to experiment with new marketing techniques, advertising revenues, and web technologies. I created a simplified, alternate mobile version of the site, created an iPhone icon, set up a twitter account, and on and on.

It's definitely been a learning experience. I'll probably post a follow-up to this on my company blog.
