In the Rear View

Behind the Scenes

Thursday, May 1 2008 at 6:44 PM by Rick

A few of you have written wondering why I'm writing many of our posts.

Well, I'll tell you. While I'm writing, Jay is keeping this site up and running all on his own. Not only did he design, develop, and build this entire site, but he's the one who keeps it alive. And it's quite a bit of work.

He updates the map, creating our route so you can follow us. He's updated some back-end stuff which none of you can even see. He keeps the site clean of bull$hit spam posts. He was in the drivers seat making the philly video (and yes, we know we need more). Oh, and in his free time he also saves, resizes, and uploads all the photos, grouping them into galleries and albums. Not to mention, he is integral in creating the outline of all the posts we do write.

None of you can see this. So none of you can truly appreciate all that he does. But trust me, it's a lot of work.

So everyone, please give a big hand to Jay.
