    BoardingArea will soon relaunch with a new design, several microsites and new technologies that will personalize the blogs for some readers. As part of their new relaunch they have a call out to any bloggers interested in being considered to their hosting program. Benefits include traffic building, learning conferences such as last years popular BACON which this year will be in Las Vegas in September, full technical and hosting services, blog theme development, etc.

    SO, if you have a blog, thinking of a blog and would like to hear more of how BoardingArea helps bloggers grow traffic and grow professionally, visit HERE.

    As a fairly recent addition to the Boarding Area team, I can attest that being part of the group adds all of the benefits that Randy mentions above and something even better: the sense of joining a family of great people who look out for each other.

    Randy, this sounds quite intriguing to me actually. I have a couple of questions though. Want me to use the contact form or reach out to you directly?

    We're in the "what works best for you" communication line. You can email me at randy {at} boardingarea {dot} com, use the contact form or even start a Conversation here on Milepoint if that works easiest for you. I'm here (and there ...) to answer your questions.

    What do you think, are you ready for the real Frequent Whiner blog?

    Though I still think we need that app.

    Actually, i have tried to recruit potential authors for a version of that based on The Onion. I think it would be bloody fun to have a look at the humor of the headlines from these programs, etc. There's one for the military, why not for frequent flyers, just take a look at this humor look at things:

    I even tried to recruit Koko/Matt Wald but he may be too serious for this. Any ideas? I think it is such a cool idea that I'm even willing to pay authors to create the new blog. As for the Whiner part, why create something that some already are much better at, let's just go with humor!
