This is it; this is our very first blog post. One can't help but feel that in a few years, I'll look back at this moment as the first step on a major journey in this companies history.
My name is Graeme Wingate, the founder of Avoid.co.uk and Avoid.com.
The path to launching this project has been one heck of a journey. The concept for it was borne many years before, probably over a decade ago. Almost going bankrupt twice before even getting here, it's been one heck of a journey, but here we are.
As this stand, I'm sat here just before New Years Eve, no staff, no techies
The project is being launched with no outside cash, and we don't have investors. No deep pockets for launch parties. Everything is being built from the ground up, bit by bit we want to grow this into one of the World's biggest travel websites.
OK, I'm kidding there.
We won't be one of the biggest. We actually want to be THE world's biggest travel website in 5 years.
So can it still be done? Can someone even start a site from his bedroom and for it to become the world leader? Guess you will have to stay tuned for the answer to that one.
OK, let's do this.
