There is no meaning to the word “shboing”. It is a made up word that imitates a sound (known as “onomatopoeia”). The logo was created by our niece, Kristy. The burgundy color was intended to symbolize red wine.
Originally founded in 2007 with friends from work, the vision was to leverage information technology in the wine industry by connecting consumers and wineries together. The company never got going.
In 2011, my wife and I took over Shboing LLC and converted it into an IT consulting and web development business. Although we had some successes, it became a “not for profit” business as our focus was helping small non-profits with their website and IT infrastructure. We did this on volunteer basis and donated computer equipment as well.
We closed Shboing LLC at the end of 2019 and are no longer doing business.
I have converted the Shboing website into my photography portfolio site. As an avid photographer, I had been using Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/photos/chewdawg – to post my photos. However, they recently increased their membership price for Flickr Pro and I wanted more flexibility in presenting and explaining my photographs.
I am also using the website to post commentaries on WordPress, Squarespace and other related topics.
It’s going to take time to move all of my photos but it’s an enjoyable, therapeutic endeavor.
