Change is afoot here. As you’ve noticed by now, the domain name and logo are different. The site and all things related to it are now ‘Startup Flavor’. Why the change? Well, initially it was because of a not-so-good reason. I got into a dispute with a company over use of the word ‘entrepreneur’. While it could have turned ugly, it didn’t. I’m pleased to announce that we came to a mutually agreeable solution that led to this new look and feel. I’m actually really happy with the agreement and I’m looking forward to the coming changes.
Here are a few things that will change and others that will stay the same:
1 – The domain name is shorter, so we don’t have to use a shortener. All of the links going out of here will be startupflavor.com/hsnh or the like. Easier to share the brand!
2 – The content is going to continue to focus on my occasional thoughts with a strong emphasis on posts from unique people with deep experience in related topics. I learn a lot from them and I hope you do, too.
3 – I’m hopeful we can get even more sharing and discussion going on. It’d be cool if this became a place to learn and chat about all things business.
4 – Just because ‘startup’ is in the name, that doesn’t mean we are leaving all of you that already have businesses behind. The stuff we’ll discuss here will hopefully continue to relate to all different types of businesses and entrepreneurs.
5 – I’ll spend some time and money on SEO for the first time in the history of this blog. I’d like to see more people here and more people sharing. I make $0 from this blog and continue to plan to make $0. It’s an outlet for me and a place we all learn from each other. The more the merrier, right?
6 – Regarding number 5 above, I need some help from you. I’ve never spent any time on inbound links or SEO. In order to make things happen on this new domain a little more, might I ask you to link to the new domain on one/some of your sites? Again, only if you feel the content is relevant and worth sharing. It’d be awesome though to see a link to StartupFlavor.com on a bunch of readers sites.
What else can I do with the change? Any suggestions on content, guest bloggers, the look/feel of the site, or other stuff? I really do value your opinions and comments so I hope you’ll leave some. Thanks for all of your support, sharing, comments, links and for even reading this. It’s great to have an online community of friends!
