I’ve finally found the time after the big move to push out my client-focused consultant website, DurhamWebsites.ca.
I’ve been sitting on the domain for a while now trying to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with it. I have a confession: I’m a news junkie. It’s not so much that I read news articles endlessly, but that I love journalism itself. I am fascinated by the “new news” and how people today are consuming information.
I don’t want this post to be about new media, but about my final decision to focus on my consultant work and not a local news venture. It wasn’t an easy decision, and I may still change my mind, but for me at this time I think it’s the best decision.
I’ve done a lot of homework on Durham Region. I’ve spent a great deal of time building the DurhamRegion twitter account. I’ve bookmarked hundreds of local business sites, news sites, and personal blogs. I’ve even spent some time aggregating RSS feeds on a website. One thing has kept me going was the constant notion that Durham Region needs a better method for gathering news.
I really do believe we’ll see a local information revolution soon, and I still hope to be part of it, but I want to gear down this part of my work life and concentrate more on my consulting services.
I really hope to successfully introduce high-end websites to Durham Region. I am also interested in providing Google Apps solutions to businesses in the area. I am going to also continue my corporate consulting, mainly because I love the challenges they demand.
Anyway folks, wish me luck! If you have any feedback for DurhamWebsites.ca please leave a comment or email me at [email protected] Oh and don’t worry, I still love news and I’ll keep active on @durhamregion Twitter account.
