How to play nice with others.

It is a little ironic (don’t you think?) that I write this as I have been described many times as ‘Does not play well with others’. I was going to write that I prefer to play with myself than others but for obvious reasons I am not going to. When it comes to advertising and promotion though, it always pays to play nicely. When this website was created, it was so that there would be a place online that was promoting St. Thomas, but also listing events that were being held by so many organizations. The reason why the website came about was that there was no sharing of information, far from it. If organization ‘A’ was having an event, unless you looked at their website, you wouldn’t have the details. There was very little cross promotion between these organizations. This is where we came in, because with no affiliation to any organization, business or charity, we don’t play favours, keep the information to ourselves or require you to only look at our website to discover what goes on in St. Thomas. It isn’t always easy to get the information that we want to share. A lot of time and [...]
