Hooping.org has been spinning things up for more than a dozen years now and one of our goals for our 12th Hoopiversary and Hooping.org 6.0 relaunch is to get out of debt. Yay! As you can imagine, running a hooping community website has never exactly been a big money making proposition. It’s a huge and almost entirely volunteer driven labor of love, one that quite honestly has either been in the red or scraping by pretty much since it began. We’re so committed to spinning up the hoop love though and rather than solicit donations or issue some community crowdfunding plea, we took a closer look at ways we could serve the community even more, and this truly connects the community in a bigger way than ever before. And being the community loving do gooder type of people that we are, it’s all super duper affordable too.
With 2.3 million hits a year at this point and rising, hooping.org has been connecting our overflowing email inbox of those looking for hoops and classes and performers with hoopers in their area for a very long time. It’s all happened behind the scenes, and for Hooping.org 6.0 we decided to not only spin up new advertising opportunities for hooping businesses and event organizers, but to really bridge that service gap in a way that totally rocks. Welcome to our new Vendor and Event Listings. Broken down categorically by geographic area and highlighted right in our site navigation at the top of every page, it’s never been easier for someone looking for hoop services and events to find what is happening right in their own backyard.
