on being a simple girl

I take great joy in small things. Yesterday's joy was found in writing a press release to announce the launch of my husband's new social networking site, UnionCountyNeighbors.com - designed to encourage buying local, and creating/maintaining personal and professional relationships within our county - thereby strengthening the local economy and fostering a sense of community that has begun to fade since the influx of new residents to Union County NC. (5th fastest growing county in the state, 7th fastest growing in the country!)

Today's joy was getting 2 replies from local media which are interested in including us in their newspaper.

  1. You got it going on, sister.

    Did you create the website, too?

  2. we used NING, which is an off-the-shelf networking service, but yes, we added the custom colors, layout, theme, and all the bells and whistles - the hardest part was finding a good platform to host the business directory. It still needs some tweaks here and there but we're pretty happy with it :)
