With a goal of 500 reviews by May 1st, I have re-launched Gametripping.com. Originally launched in June 2004, GameTripping received some early press when I gave a radio interview almost 2 years ago.
Recently, I found some time to enhance the old code, and with the power of Flex 2, I was able to really enhance the user experience as well.
In this powerful and exciting re-launch, a new feature called Ballpark Collection lets you track, view and share all the ballparks you have visited and reviewed throughout Major League baseball. Additional new features on the ballpark’s profile include the GameTripping guide (powered by Yahoo! Maps) and the GameTripping Gallery (powered by Flickr). In essence, the ballpark’s profile becomes a pretty compelling mashup driven by 2 of the most popular APIs.
Also new is the addition of the GameTripping badge. Once you create an account, you will be given free code to put on your blog or MySpace page. This code displays a special Flash module that will show your audience how many reviews you have made on GameTripping.com. When the module is clicked, your readers will be led right to your Ballpark Collection. [You can view my badge on the sidebar of my blog!]
GameTripping.com has always been driven by the community, and with each ballpark review made, the site grows as a comprehensive resource for people visiting ballparks. A fun and informative ballpark review can take just take one minute to write. By entering your reviews you will share your ballpark experiences with the thousands (hopefully millions) of users Gametripping.com will entertain this coming season.
Enjoy, write reviews, spread the word and help me reach the modest goal of making GameTripping.com the most entertaining and comprehensive ballpark guide ever!
