Task complete. Like me!! No really, 'Like' Me!!

Some minor changes have been made to the FMT website. Clarification on tour availability and Like Buttons everywhere!!

So go to the page and 'Like' me, will ya?! Let's get the word out. ;-)

Really in the mood for a croissant right now. Must go to Honoré.

Buzz, buzz, buzz

Looking at my site analytics, there has been a lot of activity on my Food-Minded Traveler web page... well a lot for me at least. Nine new visitors on September 30th and six yesterday!! No one has contacted me yet, but I'm thinking that the word is getting out.

I'm going to change the verbiage today to let people know that my tours aren't only for the posted dates, but that they can be for any 5-days that they want to plan their vacation around. Prices will of course have to vary depending on the season, but I'll certainly be available for whenever they want to go!!

Ok, off to html land.

Happy Saturday!!

Check me out!!

So as I mentioned in my November blog, I now have a web site, Facebook page, Twitter account...
Oy. I'm everywhere!!

So here I am...



See you there!!!!

Been a long time since I rock 'n rolled...

Oh boy, lots has changed.

Lorelei is 20 months old today, talking, running, she's found her silly bone (which I love)
Too much to list really. So let's maybe start anew.

Let's now call this Blog The Food-Minded Traveler. Ok? Ok. thanks for agreeing. ;-)

That's all for now.
New days, new things to say.

November 1st, 2009

I am so very close to having the website up and running. I am just pulling together content for the website. Cards are done and look great. Sonja made a Facebook thumbnail, so I'll be able to set up a Facebook account and create a 'fan' base. We'll see how that goes.

Plugging away.

Everything happens for a reason

Well, my contact pulled out of the project the other day. She was very apologetic about "wasting my time", but all in all her, albeit limited, involvement really stoked my fire and made me confident that my ideas are viable.

Business cards are being printed and my web site it on the build.

Things are plugging along.

Wrap it up. I'll take it.

Great news... for the most part. I have received word that a woman I had been wanting to work with has agreed to consult with me for my tour. Wahoo!!! The only bummer is that I will have to keep her involvement "under wraps" which puts a damper on the plan I had to access her readership for word-of-mouth advertising and tour sales. I had also wanted to access one of the publications she works for to get some exposure.

Oh well. I'll do it on my own with her on-the-ground help in Paris.

Man! The more I think about it, this secrecy thing really stinks. I was hoping to use her involvement as "leverage" for getting advertising money and as a sales point for potemtial clients.

This is just more fuel for me to do this on my own. I am happy to have her help, but I don't need "outside" support to make my dream come true. This has always been my tangle with getting this tour off the ground in the first place.

Time to shift it into high gear and boost myself up as perfectly capable of pulling this off.

Yay me. ;-)
