Hostess with the Mostess
Well, it’s 12:50 a.m., so April 9th is officially here! The site will go live late this afternoon (4:00 PST) – but I just got a heads up from my programmers that it can take anywhere from 1-6+ hours after the new site launches for it to be accessible everywhere due to “DNS propigation” and some other fancy programmer speak…so if for some reason it’s not there when you first visit, please check again later!

We’re calling this the “beta” launch because the site is still a work-on-progress…over the next few weeks we’ll be adding even more party themes and content and launching new sections of the site – but I hope this initial launch will give you a better idea of what the hwtm vision is all about and where we’re headed…

Last but not least, I really want to thank all my fellow bloggers and blog-readers for your kind words & encouragement over the past couple of weeks. Your comments and emails are so appreciated and always brighten my day – especially after running on minimal sleep for weeks on end…it helps make all the work worth it. Funny how much impact a little note from someone you’ve never even actually “met” can have – but it does! So, thank you…very much :)
