Howdy! I hope this post finds you well. It's been a busy summer for me. I'm having a lot of fun with several other projects I've been working hard at over the last couple of months.
For starters, I serve on the committee that runs Muskego Fest, which we renamed this year to DandiLion Daze. The new name is a tribute to the community's once-famed DandiLion Park, which at one time was home to the country's fastest rollercoaster, the Tail Spin. That's right - Muskego was once home to the *country's* fastest rollercoaster. That was, until Six Flags Great America just south of us in Gurnee, Illinois, came along. Anyway, I help the festival with its marketing efforts and booking bands, and I'm having a blast! Those of you that have been following this blog for a while now already know how much I love marketing. Check out this press release I issued back in early June about the festival's name change and some of the other major highlights coming to this year's festival, which runs from August 23-25.
Speaking of Muskego, another big project I'm working on this summer is a Web site I launched called MuskegoWisconsin.com. I also have a Facebook page by the same name, and it has a little over 1,000 fans at the moment. I hope to turn it into a viable local resource featuring Muskego-area news, commentary, networking & business opportunities, nightlife, fun things to do, and community.
Finally, just last week, I launched another Web project, a site called FacebookHelpers.com. I actually can't believe that domain name (Web site address) was still available! I also bought the domain FacebookConsultants.com (again, really can't believe it was available), and I set it to forward to FacebookHelpers.com. My goal for the site is to have it serve as a valuable resource for mostly small business owners and entrepreneurs looking for help in creating and managing an effective Facebook presence. Check out this blog post I recently published on the site entitled, "How this site came to be" - it's a true, and somewhat funny (I think), story about how I got the idea to launch this site while watching The Social Network for what seemed to be the millionth time since its 2010 release.
Other than all of this, just enjoying the summer weather whenever I can. I'm enjoying cruising in my summer vehicle, a 1988 Lincoln Town Car (a couple pics below). And I'm really looking forward to the Wisconsin State Fair starting in just a couple of days! I'm a big State Fair fan, and go quite a few times each year. Always a fun time.
How has your summer been? Get to take any neat trips? Working? Learning any new skills? Doing anything at all besides playing Fortnite or Cookie Clicker? I sure hope so! Feel free to share your summer adventures in the comments section below.
Hope you're doing well and enjoying summer!
All the Best,
