What is this site?
This site is a blog. It’s also a brochure and ecommerce site for Clip-n-Seal, a product that we invented, market, and sell. We built a market and business for Clip-n-Seal with this blog and wrote about it and other blogs we’ve built in Publish and Prosper: Blogging for your Business, a New Riders book from Peachpit Press.

The blog includes posts about Clip-n-Seal: news, developments, what we're doing, and other fun stuff. We have archives going all the way back to when we started blogging about our campaign for freshness in 2004.

We use Movable Type 4.2-en-release-41-r2768-20080714 as our blogging application and are hosted by Strangecode. Our parent company, Textura Design, builds Movable Type blogs for clients. DL Byron, our Inventor, Blogger, and CEO, speaks about business blogging and teaches clients how to blog.
