Allrighty then. Navigating the new technology of marketing on the web is quite a learning curve and one that, using the current political health care lingo, bending the curve, am not sure if it can be bent. So this post is really a test to see if it will feed into my face book page and my twitter page. When I get this down, I will try and lay it out for all who have faced the uphill of this technology curve.
Well, this is the beginning. First blog, first twitters, first Facebook page. A lot of firsts. 13 years ago I had an idea about a site for college students being able to network about classes and the such. I guess some other people had it at the same time. Little late on that one but I was not a brainy programmer either. So about three years ago, I had another idea. Looks like it takes some time to get these things.

The family was taking quite a few trips from Memphis, TN to Austin, TX and I kept passing signs that said Historical Marker one mile ahead. Well, I thought, wouldn't it be cool if I knew what that Historical Marker was about. Do I want to go see it or would it not be that interesting? For three years I thought how could I make it happen. Every time we took another trip I would start thinking about it again. There was gps navigation and laptops were becoming gps enabled. I could have multiple discs that you would load.....

Then I finally got an Iphone. Look at this!! And it hit me, I could do it with an app. Technology had caught up with the idea.
