Many months later....

We finally launched our new website and, if you're still interested in talking, I'd love to find a way to add links to each others site.

Let me know. We have a forums section of our site that has a lot of great information that your users might find helpful. I'm trying to figure where I would link to you.

Thanks and hope to hear back,
