Weekend Musings


Hello, happy Saturday, and welcome to my weekend musings. After a bit of funkiness with my RSS feed everything is now running smoothly. In case you missed it my new RSS feed is: http://feeds.feedburner.com/morganlintoncom

This is a working weekend for us and right now we are coding away working on Fashion Metric. We have some very exciting announcements ahead and as usual my blog readers will be some of the first to know.

It has been an incredibly busy week at Fashion Metric with another busy week ahead, honestly right now we are working 14+ hour days and weekends. Without a doubt this is the hardest I’ve ever worked in my life, it does make me realize how easy I had it when I had a 9-5, but hey, I knew this was what I was getting into and changing the way people shop online definitely isn’t an easy task.

Mark included us in a tweet last Thursday night which drove over 220 new sign-ups and a flurry of retweets and favorites that made it one heck of an exciting night. Here’s what the tweet ended-up after all was said and done:


For those wondering, in the end this tweet drove about 1,100 unique visitors over the course of about two hours. No we don’t normally get this much traffic from one tweet, but when Mark retweets and then 25 other people do it can really drive some serious traffic.

On the domain-front I am really getting excited about DOMAINfest at the end of this month. The speaker lineup is absolutely incredible from a keynote by Gary V and a private concert from Stone Temple Pilots. I am already starting to have my meeting schedule fill up so if you did want to plan some time with me this is the week to do it!

Okay, we’ve been coding all day, I think it’s time to take a hot tub, don’t you?
