A few years ago (back in 2008), I started windows7center.com. A friend knew someone (let’s give him a fake name, John) who was looking to build a news site for Windows 7, and he referred John to me.
John already purchased the domain, along with hosting, but other than that, he had a very vague idea of how he was going to execute this idea. After all, he was a student pursuing business, and although he spent lots of time on the internet, John had never grown or developed a website. I worked with many clients who were either establishing, or established, and had a fair amount of experience growing forum communities. There wasn’t really a website dedicated to information and news on Windows 7 at that point, so our partnership began.
