Hyper Local Communities Online humbly accepts being 2nd

Sure we believe in DC1City. Because our family lives in it. Thus we alson know DC is made up of many wonderful communities, our is AUPark. Each of these communities citizen's are so attached to their community that using anything other then that communities name say AdamsMorgan,   Hstreet  or PennQuarter is not going to cut it.

Never has and never will. So take a tip from Kathrine Buckley and connect to your community online and it connects back to you.  

In our wonderful world of helping each others. Once we saw this community savvy Realtor listing our site on her awesome marketing materials and linking us on her homepage....(makes her a CommunityStar in our book) we hopped to it and listed her on the AmericanUniversityPark community site. Then set about blogging, tweeting and generally praising her effort to help us, which allows us to help this community and help earth.

This is how the internet net began! Before the day "How to Make A Fortune on the Info Super Highway" was published the internetwork was a commuity not a cash register. So how do you get your name/info/event networked onto our cloud.You link to us or even mention us in social media and we link to you.

Having to paying to be listed as part of the community is absurd. Without that business, group or service you don't have a community.   Considering that we have been building Communities Online since 1997 we have seen every single company that has come after that come and go. While our simple idea of  being part of the community might be worth it for others to look into instead of stampeding to the newest trend considering we're still here 14 years later.

FYI. to all the out-of-town players Welcome to DC and get to know the names of our communities the ones we have found are on the listed on the DistrictCloud.  

Oh yea  if your going to say your the #1 HyperlocalCommunity website or resource.   And, thanks for being our Google adSense clients as we are publisher on ever singe page across the MetropolitanCloud.
And, since every single blog, socialmediacitizen, and site in the world proclaims being the number 1, we'll humbly accept being second only to the folks in the community.
