Many thanks to my editor at Chicago, Lauren Williamson, as well as all my friends in Louisville who shared their insight on some of the city’s antique hot spots. Its always great to get back to Louisville, if only for a short visit.

Brand USA’s Visit the USA website, which encourages travelers abroad to, well, visit the USA, just published another article I wrote:
Today’s Louisville Courier-Journal quoted me talking about Derby Home Rental (my side gig) and the benefits of Derby-weekend home rentals for Louisville, Kentucky:
Wells Fargo Advisors’ Lifescapes newsletter just published my latest article: “Planning Your Trip to the Races in Louisville.”
Derby Home Rental LLC, my business that advertises Louisville, Kentucky-area homes to rent on Derby weekend, just added a Flipboard magazine and About.me profile. Will they make a huge difference in helping renters find my site in 2016? Not sure, but they can’t hurt.
They join social media accounts Derby Home Rental already has on
Derby 2015 was another record year for Derby Home Rental LLC with 58 homes advertising and 38 of them renting—both all-time highs. And 2016 looks like it’s off to an even better start.
Derby 2015 was another record year for Derby Home Rental LLC, my business that helps Louisville, Kentucky-area homeowners rent out their homes for Derby weekend. This year 58 homes advertised and 38 of them rented—both all-time highs.
Over the past year, I redesigned the website with a responsive theme that looks better on mobile browsers and devices, installed a SSL certificate to improve the site’s security, took several measures to speed up the site’s load time, commissioned a new logo, and added a Tiny Letter newsletter that informs subscribers when a new home advertises on the site.
In addition, I created or overhauled our social media profiles. You can now keep up with the latests ads via
Derby Home Rentals also was mentioned in an Aol Travel article on the Kentucky Derby.
Thanks to everyone who advertised and rented a home this year. And, remember—the earlier you advertise your home for Derby weekend 2016, the better your chances of finding a renter.
Derby Home Rental LLC, my business that helps Louisville, Kentucky-area homeowners rent out their homes for the weekend of Kentucky Derby, just increased its social media presence. We’re now on
Much appreciated if you followed it. Thanks!
After discussions with Churchill Downs Inc., the URL kentuckyderbyhomerental.com has changed to louisvillederbyhomerental.com. (For six years, I’ve owned and operated Derby Home Rental LLC, which helps Louisville, Kentucky-area homeowners advertise their homes to rent during Derby weekend.)
For the next year, the old site will have a message directing visitors to the new one. It’ll take a little bit for search engines to digest and process this switch. We had record traffic last year—9,840 visits and 41,108 page views—and I will monitor the site’s search engine status and work to continue that growth.
Relatedly, my email address for that business has changed to email@example.com.
