Over at Frank Thinking, contributing Pilgrim Frank Reed shares a study that reveals just why it’s so hard to get small businesses to break their local newspaper/yellow pages advertising habit.

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few weeks i will be launching my own site, i’m not great with designs but i really like the style of your site so it would be cool if i could find (or pay for) something with a similar look. :) Thanks!

    Thanks – I designed my own theme and banner – you can actually find a theme and I could do some custom graphics it may be less expensive. I look forward to hearing from you and of course my forte is design so It would be fun working with you.

    Let me know when you have you site I would love to take a look at it!
