Is there ever time to blog?
We are now 4 years into our Riverbender.com project and we keep finding more ways to keep busy. Building websites, adding new features and expansion of our Video and TV department provide plenty of work for everyone. Finding time to check in here and keep everyone up to date is nearly impossible!
We are still a small company so everyone's contribution is vital ~ every minute of time at work must be productive or we won't be able to keep the site up to date. And communicating with you is also important.
The reason for that is because we only exist to provide you with the information and resources you need. Check in with us on the site, this blog, facebook, myspace, and twitter. In our Forums we more regularly post on new features as they are released. Be in contact with us about what things you would like to see more of, and we will bring it to you.
Thanks for your continued support of the site. Our visitors to the site continue to grow as we keep trying to spread the word. Remember that our advertisers keep the site running ~ let them know you appreciate that ~ buy local and invest in our community!
If you haven't seen it lately, RBTV is exploding with videos of events and festivals around the area as well as full length sportscasts. Check it out today!

Thanks for coming by to visit and read about Riverbender.com's journey as a website start up.
We actually launched 19 months ago at the 2005 Halloween parade. It was our plan to introduce the website to the Riverbend Community in a unique way. Frankie (Or Uncle Frankie as he has been come to be known as) rode down Broadway surfing the Riverbender.com website. He was almost 14 feet high and everyone loved him. Soon I will post again about the 2006 Halloween parade. Frankie made a startling 2nd appearance riding alongside our 2nd float the haunted house!
There is this conundrum when starting up a website, that you need to keep people interested with compelling content which you build through partnerships and you need new and returning visitors in order to find willing partners. It's a stuggle until you are recognized as a staple or even as a long term player as a handful of websites focused on our community have come and gone over the last 12-13 years.
We have made great strides in both content and visitor growth. Now after 19 months we have a product that is more helpful than ever and we have visitor stats that are phenomenal. All we work on everyday is finding new content to add for our guests so they will keep up their great support.
Visit our site today and let us know what you'd like to see. We'll try to drop in here and continue telling our story and updating you on our current news.
