New MerchantCircle release!

So we released our new stuff this week. The blog functionality is really interesting. If you look at what Elvas (see Elvas Listing) has done here on Elva's blog, you will get an idea of the potential power of small businesses communicating with each other and their local consumers this way.

We have a lot of work left, but we are up to it. Let us know if you have ideas or feedback. As I watch Lou's Village (which has been around since 1946) look to close shop along side of another Starbucks showing up in Willow Glen, I see the continuing destruction of unique local neighborhoods.

Hopefully our simple product can help local merchants better use the one advantage they have that the mega-brands cannot steal, that they are in fact local.
