So it’s been a long time since I’ve posted to my “business journal” blog. Business at Wandertec has boomed this year not leaving much time to reflect. And much of my blogging energy has gone into the Bike Trailer Blog instead.
But, I do like to write and reflect so now that things have slowed down with the winter months upon us, I’ll resume my ramblings.
So 2008 was a great year for the business. It was a boom year for bike commuting, and all things related and with our focus on bike trailers and bicycle bags, the sales came flooding in. Along with this growth, we brought on 3 full time employees, along with myself, making us 4 strong.
Now that we’re in the slow season, we’ve been chipping away at a whole range of projects including launching a new website Bike Bag Shop which is also going to be the new platform for Bike Trailer Shop and then Bike Kid Shop in the coming months.
In other areas, we have launched a new concept site called Spoke And Word. This site is for bike-blog writers and enthusiasts to post and vote on bike posts. We’re not sure if the bike blogging community will pick up on this website as a useful tool to both promote their own blogs and check out a whole variety of other blog posts, however we are finding that our involvement in getting it underway is a very useful way to become much more active in the bike-blogging community.
Finally, we are about to launch new versions of the Wandertec and ExtrawheelUSA sites.
We’re keeping it rolling…..
