Hello New York

A new free classifieds website is born: Locanto Free classifieds New York. In the coming weeks, I will add a few more cities and countries. I am curious to see if users will like it.
Dear Reader,

This is my first blog entry for a new project that I am about to start. It is called Locanto.

Locanto is about local classifieds in English speaking countries. I have done classifieds before. In 2002 I started a local classifieds site called opusforum in the German speaking market.
opusforum was bought in 2005 by Ebay and merged with its new Kijiji classifieds business in the German speaking markets of Austria, Germany and Switzerland.

Kijiji was a fun experience for me, but after one year I wanted to explore something new. In some ways Locanto is new for me, because it will be about new countries, new cities, new communities. But it is all about local stuff, so it is also something I worked on before.

If you like, come back from time to time and see how my new project is doing.

I am very excited about going global with something very local.
