Daily Word-of-Mouse blogging

Entry date: August 12, 2010

It is interesting to see the expressions on people’s faces when I tell them I plan to blog about a different Chippewa Valley business onwer each day in the RelyLocal Blog. A few have looked at me as if I am crazy, while mentioning that they have never tried blogging, and would be cautious about the time it would take to carry it out, much less daily.

The way I look at it, I am genuinely interested in business owners of Chippewa Valley Area businesses, such as what prompted them to start their business, why they opened their business in the Chippewa Valley, what their goals are, and if there are areas of assistance they need.

Over the next few days and coming weeks as I introduce the business owners I have met with, I encourage you to get to know them, visit their website, stop into their stores to peruse the selections they have on hand, or the get to know the services they offer.

I am enthusiastic about opening RelyLocal in the Chippewa Valley, because there are many opportunities to help local consumers know about local businesses. When we work together, we can accomplish great things, and as a result local businesses will thrive and our local economy will be strengthened.

I hope you will will join me in this journey and check http://www.relylocal.com often to survey the products and services of local businesses.


Enthusiasm is running!

Today was a great day out there promoting RelyLocal – Chippewa Valley. The businesses I talked to are excited about what RelyLocal will offer the area, and are ready to jump on board. Those I talked to also provided referrals of other local businesses that seem excited about the possibilities. Those I interviewed for my blog (which will start next week officially) are looking forward to seeing their feature as part of this blog’s following.

Now to shift gears and get ready to indulge in the company of 1000 or so who attend the concert series on Thursday nights, and enjoy a night of networking, listening and relaxing at Phoenix Park. I always bring my journal and find inspiration through the music that is shared, and the word pour out of my thoughts onto the pages of my journal.
