Press mentions

Although this website has yet to be mentioned in the press, I do have some cool links to other press mentions I’ve received over the past 10 years.

Once upon a time, long before there was a Twitter or even a Facebook, I developed a website called . It was an online buy and sell, sort of an ebay for kids clothes, and it was pretty popular for quite a few years.

Back then, I was crafting my own press releases and raising money for charity through the website. It was fun – I wish it was still open for business. Unfortunately, when I hired a web design company to redevelop the website, they took me for a ride to the point where I lost a ton of money and, because the site was offline for so long, a ton of traffic.

Here is a sample of the press I received for the website. Some links may not work as it’s been quite a few years since the site was online.
