I can honestly say that 2014 has been an absolutely brilliant year for us. So much has happened. The first big news was Firefly and I being asked to speak at the iDate conference in Cologne in September. We were able to talk to the dating site industry about how scammers work and the ways to spot their profiles. We also made some very good contacts through it. It went so well we’re going to be attending the London conference in 2015, plus I’ll be at the Las Vegas superconference in January.
We also got the word out about scams a lot this year. We were featured in several newspapers, the BBC news and a number of radio stations around the UK. We’ll also have another big announcement soon about another media project we were involved in. The BBC article was particularly exciting as it was something that took half the year to complete.
Next year will have more media work, plus we’re working on getting out our first book ready for the site’s third birthday in March. There’s so much more we’re planning on doing.
I really have to thank the small group of volunteers that run this site. I’m proud to be able to call them my friends. We’re even looking to all meet in person in 2015, which should be brilliant.
So to everyone I say a Happy New Year and may you all keep save in 2015.
