No more RimCount.com

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

In 2007 I created a web site to designed to help everyone, principally me, track your luck with the Tim Horton’sâ„¢ roll-up promotion and let users share their experience with others.

Today Rim Count has been shut down. The site required a little bit of work to update the content for 2010, but more than that, it needed a way for people to access the site beyond the web and e-mail; perhaps a mobile app or Facebook app. Most of all, it was to be a success, it needs more than zero marketing.

That’s not going to happen.

It was a good way to learn the Drupal platform, and I recommend it to anyone building a site with content that’s more than reverse chronological posts. Mission accomplished. Now it’s time to close up shop.
