For a couple of weeks I’ve been thinking about what sort of comments should be in a first post. Until finally I say to myself, ‘Geez, just do what always works for you, talk like you’re having a conversation.’
So, as a mini backdrop, it should be described that HelloTraveler.com has been an online retailer of travel-themed journals, photo albums, picture frames, scrapbooks and travel gifts since April 2005. Our Homepage quote says it best, “After the journey itself, it’s all about the memories.”
Building this business has been both the hardest and most rewarding endeavor of my career life. Funny how that works….that the most difficult can also be the best. I’ve experienced that in other facets of my life also.
And now, I totally understand why people often refer to their own business as their ‘baby’. It is all-consuming, you have total responsibility, it morphs and grows, then you hit snags and difficult challenges, plus it can be wildly exhausting. Just like with a kid!
But, when you get those calls and emails from people just wanting to tell you how cool or great the website is, it again validates that you’ve added something postitive and useful to this world. Every order essentially does that too.
So, on we go, building and morphing. And looking forward to offering useful thoughts, ideas and info to our travel-loving customers. Happy Trails.
