Firstly, a belated Happy New Year to you all.
I apologise for not posting for a while, but after the mosaic, I have found things a little tough as I’m sure many of you have. However, with the holiday season now truly over, I feel refreshed and ready to make 2018 the year of change for many of us, and the year Absent sweeps the world.
Let me update you all on where we are with Absent.
The design team are busy creating the visuals for the app and website, and we are working on adding the features necessary to ensure this is nailed down before we launch.
If you have any suggestions or opinions on any features you would like to see, then please feel free to contact us to discuss.
This is not just a product based on my own situation, it is for all of us absent from loved ones.
We are focusing on certain situations to launch. We would love to focus on all situations, but as with any new business startups, it’s better to concentrate your energy.
Our main focus is on 3 specific situations of absence.

The main features will be there. Digital stuff being a photo, video, letters which will provide a sizeable chunk of the information needed to be therapeutic for us and to leave an informed ‘time capsule’ ready for whoever is missing from your life.
I am busy trying to gain as much exposure as I can for Absent. I am networking my behind off trying to get meetings with anyone and everyone who will listen.
If there is anyone willing to ‘go on the record’ and give us a quote or a testimonial on how important the concept we are developing is on short term therapy for the user, and the benefits that the story left will have for those finding it, then we would be eternally grateful.
We have also decided to create a Crowdfunding campaign to get things really moving.
We are working with an extremely talented guy who is in the process of coming up with something that will engage a lot of people. However, it does seem at this point that my ugly mug will be present, so he has his work cut out for him :). Please keep a look out for further developments on that.
As today is ‘Blue Monday’ – the most miserable day of the year, then I thought I would give you all who are without your loved ones a little insight into how close we are getting to delivering the platform that will give you a very real chance of reuniting.
So that is pretty much where we are right now.
If you happen to stumble upon this and know someone who will benefit massively from what we are doing, then please bring it up next time you talk, or even send them a link.
Take care everyone
