What a Week!

phew, where do the weeks go? We have been megabusy signing up travel companies to feature on our website.  Our initial recruitment plan is to call every one we have identified and speak to them in person and to develop a personal relationship with them.  Despite the fact that this is very time consuming, it has really given us a chance to talk to them and understand their businesses. What has been really gratifying is the support that we have received from nearly everyone we have spoken to.

And we have found some fantastic products to feature. A Question of Taste in Spain, offer gourmet food tours, which look amazing. They have been incredibly supportive in signing up our site.

Another great person we have spoken to is Scottish Fishing Guides up in Scotland.  He was the first person to sign up to the site and despite numerous issues with uploading photos and registering (thankfully all resolved) he stuck with us and gave encouragment throughout.

We still have quite a long way to go until we get to the level of content that we want, but the first signs are incredibly encouraging and exciting.  A big thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way.

Alex Bainbridge has reviewed Tourdust at http://www.tourcms.com/blog/2009/01/08/tourdust-launches-can-they-hit-paydirt/

I've put a typically verbose and over-long reply to Alex in the comments.
