A bigger stage

Mashable

Over the weekend Pete Cashmore, CEO of Mashable wrote a post about Dwellicious. Mashable, for those of you that don’t know, is a popular blog (about 5 Million page views each month) focused on social networks and new websites. It’s one of my favorites sites to find out what’s new on the web, so I thought it was very cool to get a post about Dwellicious on their well respected site.

Like any “review” it is interesting to see what someone (especially outside the real estate industry) found interesting about the site and what they missed. I was impressed that they picked up on our “smart bookmarks”, meaning the bookmarks update when things change about the listings. But I was disappointed that they didn’t pick up on the decision making tools we include for each bookmarked listing.

What they also didn’t know was they were seeing only half of the application. We have a few other tricks up our sleeve when we start adding the broker/agent back end. Which I promise will be amazing.

My Google alert for “Dwellicious” is going crazy right now as the Mashable post is being picked up by other new services and other bloggers are writing their own riffs on the story.

But this is exactly why Dan and I wanted to start out with a web application like Dwellicious. It’s fun to big on a bigger stage, but we also need to be careful what we wish for.
