happyfrog: frogblog Testing Team

Comments 6 by Rebecca Bollwitt

On a grey and rainy afternoon, the lovely Ms. Keira-Anne and I met up with DaveO at a steamy-windowed organic coffee shop. DaveO (the blogger, podcaster and social media evangelist) had a special mission just for us, and we were more than willing to accept. I swear the $100 cheque only had a little bit to do with it.

The terms? We shop at happyfrog businesses and write reviews of products, services, etc. But just what is happyfrog? I’m glad you asked.

happyfrog is a fresh and fun interactive web site designed to leverage the collective knowledge of our community to create an indispensable new resource for bringing about change – in our personal lives and across the planet.

Our vision for happyfrog is that it will become a home for a community of values-aligned members who happily enrich each other’s lives simply by sharing information about their favorite things. [happyfrog.ca – About]

It’s a website, a directory, a community, and a blog all focused on being eco-friendly. Since we’ve accepted this challenge, you can expect some Rebecca and Keira-Anne blog posts over on the frogblog and also more content over here. We’ll each be shopping for items and writing our own reviews so check out both of our blogs for the results.

I’m really looking forward to supporting local businesses, especially those that have chosen to be environmentally conscious.

You can also take part in spreading the happy frog word by adding a business to the directory or by entering their contest. All you need to do for the contest is write a review of a happyfrog listed company, business or service on the happyfrog.ca site (like what Alexa’s been doing). Shop. Login. Review. $500 could be yours to spend.

    That’s a totally cool website. I’ll definitely use that as a source for finding new places, products etc. Awesome!

    Is about time that there is a website like this! It’s hard to find stores that offer green/sustainable options.. I’m super excited about the potential this site has for Vancouverites! Finally a green listing that is Canadian specific AND has reviews and a large listing of stores/companys that I may not have known about!

    Thanks for the info on this website. I second what they said above.

    Glad to have a ringer like you testing out our humble endeavor Miss 604! Can’t wait to see what you come up with. Everyone is invited to chime in while we craft this (hopefully very useful) Earth-friendly, community resource to help BC get even greener!

    I spent more time reading your piece than I did at the site – looks like a link farm. I was on and off in 5 seconds.
