Halloween Links

I spent several hours updating the Salt Lake Halloween page and the Denver Halloween page.

Realizing the people will travel for a good maze or haunted house, the Salt Lake page lists attractions all along the Wasatch Front. The Denver Page lists attractions along the Front Range.

The directories are the most complete source for Halloween in these markets ... because I unabashedly included all the links I could find on the other Halloween directories.

Twitter Tip

I just did an experiement: The site makes short urls. For example, the string leads straight back here.

You can paste the stort string in a twitter post. Twitter will make the shortened URL hot.

Twitter makes any string beginning with www. hot. If you replace the "http://" with "www."

The new link seems to work and you save three characters ... which is important in a world limited to 140 characters.

PS: I am not with and can not guarantee that this hack will work forever. (Back to twitter (twitter links).
