Shak Media launches Shakadoo family of websites.
St Louis, Missouri, March 5, 2007 – ShakMedia, the parent company of Shakadoo.com, has launched a vibrant, new community of websites focused on every aspect of homeownership. Catering to readers seeking a one-stop spot where they can find answers and interact with other homeowners, Shakadoo.com serves as a community portal, providing engaging infotainment content to consumers and offering retail and commercial advertisers critical exposure to targeted consumer groups . The Shakadoo community has nine separate channels, each powered by their own blog and covering one aspect of home ownership.
ShakinStyle explores the topic of home décor, while ShakHammer focuses more on home improvement and contracting issues. LoveShak, Baby celebrates the family aspects of home, including, mommy blogs, home upsizing, and nurseries. LoanShak deals with the thorny questions surrounding mortgages, and buying or selling a home, while WorkShak looks at the needs of home office users. Shakyard, a gardening blog, takes the reader outside and Shaktronics profiles must-have gadgets in home theater and electronics. The group rounds out with Shaktoids, comprised of quirky house facts, and Shak&Jill, a real estate discussion blog written by Kathleen Helbig, a top-selling realtor in the St. Louis area.
Kathleen Helbig is also Shak Media’s CEO. “We wanted to build a site that celebrated the home and we figured the best way to do that was to gather together the best content from designers, contractors, manufacturers, realtors and lenders, while combining it with the social networking aspects of blogging and podcasts. Our goal is to promote the people who provide honest insight into home ownership, as we firmly believe owning your home should be one of the great joys in life.”
The Shakadoo site is built on Six Apart’s Typepad Hosting Service, and designed by Durbin Media Group, an interactive marketing firm specializing in blog consulting. For more information, visit us online, email Kathleen Helbig at Kathy@shakadoo.com, or call Shakadoo directly at 636-544-6384.
