Big news in one sense but a rather small development at this stage. DanceLand is building a Dance Directory starting with North Carolina Dance Studios.
I’m taking a very simple approach after more complex approaches didn’t work out. Basically a chance to experiment and see if there’s interest in this sort of thing.
However, most of my time at DanceLand is spent posting news and videos:
We’re getting a good response to our dance posts, traffic is growing and people seem to appreciate what we’re doing. It’s an ongoing process but I’m definitely seeing signs that DanceLand is finally on track as we try to build a new home on the web for the world of dance.
I’m happy to report that I successfully relaunched DanceLand: Dance and Movement Arts and am now regularly posting Dance Videos and Dance Business News.
I’m also finishing up the behind-the-scenes work on a directory of dance studios which should launch later this month. We’re back!
I recently launched a new site called Transforming The Game: Business Transformation. It focuses on innovative moves that changed and sometimes saved businesses. From Disney creating Disneyland to Google launching AdWords, it’s going to cover a lot of ground.
You can get the backstory at Flux Research.
I’ve moving my proam web updates from clydesmith.com to clydefsmith.com. This move is part of a larger shift in my online identity from Clyde Smith to Clyde F. Smith.
I did all my early writing, from poetry to academic research papers, as Clyde F. Smith. When I started creating websites and shifting to more commercial writing in 2001, I decided to go with Clyde Smith. It seemed simpler and there weren’t many of us online.
However I’ve decided to consolidate all writing, creative and commercial identities as Clyde F. Smith.
I’ll be occasionally updating as a simple log of my activities including active websites.
