So, it’s Summertime, which always makes for an interesting time of year for business. Clients are often out of town, we try to take some time off, as well and if there are any monkey wrenches thrown earlier in the year, Summer can be a great time to catch up on projects that may have run long, for whatever reason. This year, it all seemed to pile up around the annual BlogHer conference, which is the weekend of August 6th in San Diego.
We’re not technically attending this year—Kathy’s eldest son starts school that week and I have my 20 year reunion that weekend. (I’m not sure when I got so old. I feel like I was just sporting my Guess denim miniskirt, and slouch socks yesterday.) But since my 20 year reunion is in my hometown of San Diego, I will be in town that weekend, and may get a chance to meet up with a colleague, friend or client or two. Hopefully! It’s also my boyfriend’s 43rd birthday that weekend, so we’ll likely crash the Marriott lobby Saturday night and hope to run into people we know. I’m not above this.
So here’s a little highlight of what we’ve got going on over here and what’s coming down the pipe:
- We’ll be launching a new site for Giant Fire Breathing Robot over the next week, which we’re really proud about. All you geeks and gamers out there, check them out when you get a chance. We’ll announce the official launch on our Twitter account.
- We’re also almost finished with the development on a major overhaul to Pawcurious, which we’re super excited about. We designed their site a few years ago and they’ve continued to grow. Dr. V was selected as BlogHer ‘11 Voice of the Year, too. Yay, Jessica!
- If you’re into romance and snark, our favorite Smart Bitches are also in development on their new site, which brings 94% more bitch.
In totally new sites, we’ve got a fabulous Fort Worth boutique spa, an adorable super-kitsch Fayetteville, GA salon, a fabulous beauty site for women of color and an Alexandria, VA wine and cigar shop all launching in early Fall.
As mentioned, I will be out of the office for my reunion and the like and will be mostly unavailable August 5th – August 12th (I’ll be checking email for emergencies.). I’ll be back in the office on Monday, August 15th, ready to launch sites and take names. Or something like that.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful, safe, SPF and A/C-laden summer filled with watermelon and margaritas.
