I Walk The Line....

Even though I feel like the first couple of months were kind of a warm up rehearsal period, and I really consider the first of the year as the beginning of my company, it was about a year ago that I first announced here that I was starting it.

Holy cow, a year!  So I figured I should give you guys an annual report.

Miss Crawford, will you please bring in the annual report?

It's a funny thing that, living this thing day to day, it doesn't feel like things are growing fast enough.  Or even at all.  But to look over the big picture, it ain't so bad!
Without so much as a dime for publicity/marketing/advertising here's how things look:

**  I received a very small mention in The Los Angeles Times.

**  I was interviewed on "The List" a 30-minute web radio show.

**  I was invited to join an elite group of independent tour companies, 7 Days In LA

**  The tour has earned a 5-star rating on Yelp

**  I was interviewed and given a rave write-up in The Advocate Magazine.

**  There is another press piece coming at the beginning of the year I'll tell ya about later.

**  The Facebook page is on it's way to 500 followers.

**  Am preparing remarks for my participation in a swell historical/literary salon in January.

**  To date over 1000 people have taken the tour.

All in all, a swell year!  I'm looking forward to a slam-bang finish to 2011, and a banner 2012.

And I'd love to meet you guys on the tour really soon (Angelinos) or as soon as your next visit (everyone else)!
