And now for something completely different.

This site was created by Joe Crescenzi, founder of CouponPages.Com, one of the oldest and largest local coupon sites

This site is just one part in a network of sites called the Vovio Network. Unlike CouponPages, Vovio sites are just for fun, not to sell anything in particular. Just good clean fun.

Just getting warmed up.

The system itself seems quite stable, which is nice. I'm guessing I'll be able to roll out the new features as soon as I build a new server.

I want to be able to handle a lot of capacity, so I'm going to build a new server just to run Vovio sites. Even though this server is very fast, I'm mainly getting the new server specifically so that I can isolate Vovio sites from my main CouponPages and CouponMail servers.

The last thing I want to see is one of those sites going down because I didn't beta test this thing enough before I unleashed it to the world.

As a way of testing some of the features, I thought I'd embed one of my first YouTube videos here, which was simply a test of my microphone. There's no motive, just a test.

When I originally posted it, I didn't actually think anyone would actually watch it, but as of this writing, over 8000 people have viewed it.



That video is from October of 2008... It's hard to imagine so many people tuning in to see me test a microphone, but in a way, that was a turning point in realizing that if you've got something to say about a product, people shopping for that product will not only view it, but they will go out of their way to find it.

For anyone interested, the video is of me, Joe Crescenzi testing my AKG Perception 100 microphone and M-Audio MobilePre USB.

Progress report ... Day 3

Well, it's been three days since launching the Vovio Network, and so far the big news is that there's no news to report. That's a good thing.

This means the site, database and server are all working without any major glitches. This also means I can start to turn on some of the more complex features.

I've also been migrating some of the newer domains here, and until they are assigned permanent content editors and dedicated categories inside the database, they will all share this wonderful blog about the blog itself. Pure drivel, but it's a start.

Welcome to ... umm

This site has been configured as part of the new Vovio Network, but it's not quite ready for launch.

That's okay. There's plenty in store for you on your next visit.

You most likely have never heard of the Vovio Network, but that's because it's so new, we barely remember how to spell it ;)

Was this the site you were looking for? Something new is in the works.

I'm Joe Crescenzi, founder of CouponPages.Com, one of the oldest and largest local coupon sites, and I want to introduce you to my newest creation... it's something just for fun and it's called Vovio.

Vovio is a network of fun sites that all share two things in common.

1. They are all for fun. Although we may recommend, review or even encourage you to buy things we like from time to time, that's not why I created it.

2. Although there will be a lot of different sites, they all let you interact, comment and share your thoughts with other members using a just one ID and password. There will even be a way to post without creating an account.



Thanks for visiting... Ya'll come back again... Ya hear?

Now that you've seen, well, nothing in particular, let's not be strangers... come back again when the new stuff is finally in place.

What kinds of stuff? Well, to be honest, I'm a computer geek. I wrote the software to do all sorts of fun stuff, but I designed it specifically so that everyone can start sharing tons of cool things here.

You'll be able to post...

Funny photos.
YouTube Videos,
Reviews.
Rants.
Fails.
Photos and videos of cute / funny Cats... Dogs... or other pets.
Coupons (We can't leave them out... after all, this was created by Joe Crescenzi, the Founder of CouponPages).
News.
Vines (short videos that we can''''t help viewing over and over).
Music.
Jokes.
Lists... top tens, best-of's... worst-of's... etc.
Goats who sound human.
... and everything else.

Until then, why not look for some coupons, at CouponPages:


We've got local coupons in over 700 cities... and growing.
