Well, it's been an incredibly busy few weeks. Learning how to build a website from scratch, going through the learning curve ... and many many late nights. The site is probably 60% finished with all the layout and navigation templates pretty much finished and now it's just a matter of fine tuning. Then I have to write all the content into a form that is suitable for publishing and then it's time to go live. I'm guessing it will be about another week to 10 days.
Then comes the fun part where I can get back to doing what I love the most, writing and helping people along with of course continuing my ongoing journey into connecting local and regional manufacturers, retail outlets, and consumers.
Several of the manufacturers I've talked to have been very interested in what I am doing so I have a very good feeling about the direction this is going. It has been one of the most intense periods of my life but it has been worth every moment and I've learned a lot.
I think a few people will be more than a little surprised when the site launches :)
