Being Proactive

I have decided that I need to be more proactive with my new skills.  Technically they're not really new skills, but I'm working on expanding an area of my technology profile that's dangerously thin.  I have some very basic entries in the promotional area of my company, but these are really more like a flyer than an actual product.  Perhaps someday I'll work on adding some sort of significantly useful functionality, but for now all that I need is an advertisement for the technology that I am working on.  Since the corporate site is going to be something that employees, customers, and business partners interact with, I consider it much more of a full product.  Additionally, it will eventually link to all of my existing promotional materials.  Since I have momentum from this project, it seems like the right time to quickly expand to new areas where I can continue expanding my presence.  It will be interesting to see how an actual web site that is a product will be advertised, but hopefully it will fit in well with everything else and if things go well, there could be more in this area in the future (ideas pending).
