Random Thoughts: Mid October 2007

I’ve been doing and running BootsnAll for 9 full years once November hits. Hard to believe it. I’m 34 years old now. That makes it 26.4% of my life that I have been building this travel website with great friends and passionate colleagues.

Many of you know that we don’t just do travel websites anymore. We have tried a few things over the years, and the community that has grown the most is the World Cup Blog community. We recently re-launched it in preparation for South Africa 2010. New team blogs for the teams that were not part of the final 32 in 2006. We use a version of WordPress MU for this site. For Germany 2006, MU was a platform that was just not ready for what we needed, so we took a standard WordPress install and hacked the crap out of it to make it work. I am glad to see MU mature.

Someone asked me the other day, “Keener, where is your next trip planned for” – and besides some stuff around the states, I don’t have anything planned. This may be the 1st time in 9 years that I was not planning/hankering to get away. Been exploring the USA and Canada a bit more the past few years after neglecting it for overseas stuff. I feel lucky to live in a place that has just about every type of environment form Mountains to oceans, deserts to rain forest. It’s all here! I have 2 more trips to Vegas this year (to make it 5 for the year) – but that just doesn’t feel like travel to me – more like an amusement park that gets you there cuz every conference is there as well.

Check out Alex Bainbridge’s Blog on Travel Industry. Well done sir.
