    Is this just a way to get photos of pretty girls on your site?

    • Elias Shams says:

      Well, it just happened all the girls in DC are pretty? That is ONE of the reasons the blog is called Awesome DC 🙂 Referring to the categories in the right hand side and the About section, I cover Technology, parties, clubbing, and event. I am showing the good side of DC and not just the politics, scandals, and corruption.

      Thx for the comment

    Just thought I would throw this out but all of your Ads open in the same window, which for a your sake isn’t a good way to keep readers. Might want to open a new window or a new Tab when they click on the ads…don’t lose your readers to your ads ..

    Per our linkedin conversation… The “communication” related concept that my partners and I will be releasing to market in next several weeks is called customer-cam.

    Here is a link to the prelim demo video:

    Customer-cam is a customer engagement tool that a business can place on ANY webpage or even in emails that puts the customer 1 click away from instant face to face conversing between any site visitor / potential customer and a company’s sales force.

    Thoughts? Development version demo requests? Feel free to contact me…
