A Journey Around My Home Town
We finally arrived. The transition wasn’t easy but we had completed our move. Here we are - in new city, in a new community, in a new job. Our kids would be starting new schools in the fall but until then what are our kids going to do? Then again, what are me and my wife going to do? True we already don’t have much spare time, but what are we going to do and where can we go in the spare time that we can squeeze into our soon to be hectic schedule?
So, after going online, I found the usual “local” marketing information. Equipped with my new found local information as my guide, I took a short self-initiated tour throughout the community. What I found disappointed me. I began seeing some great places throughout my community. And, I had the opportunity to visit restaurants that served some of the best food that I’ve eaten. The problem; either none of smaller places were listed online or if they were listed online, the description and photo… if there was a photo, didn’t do justice to the character, history and greatness of the community and its city.
That sense of loss and disappointment had me thinking, “I know I’m not the only person who goes through this when relocating to a new area.” From those thoughts the initial concept of the company, Around My Home Town was born – “Create a place online that gives people a true, personal sense of the local attractions within a community and its city.” I wanted to go beyond the automated information that is gathered and the primarily review driven local search engine focused directories. I wanted to create a website that is driven by people on the street; real people taking photos and writing about their communities. I also wanted to showcase small and middle sized local businesses, organizations, restaurants and community areas that might be missed in traditional higher priced online marketing and advertising. In short I wanted a place online that let anyone, anywhere know what’s in and Around My Home Town.
