Within the site itself, Rethinkyoyo has been redesigned with a fresh look and a familiar feel. The design of the site has also been modernized and reworked.
Perhaps the most exciting news, however, is Rethinkyoyo's new partners. I've been in touch with Tony from YoYoCommunity and Ray from MonkeyfingeR for a while now, and we have decided that we would make a great team. The focus of both of these companies is so close to the focus I have had for Rethinkyoyo since the start that I can't imagine a better network. They have hearts and minds for the community, and I am all for that.
YoYoCommunity is an incredible website with, as the name proclaims, an intense focus on the community. Tony started the website in hopes to fill a void he saw. The site is still in beta testing, but it has already drawn a lot of attention to itself by boasting a social networking-style interface where you can share tricks, upload videos, post statuses, connect with friends, and receive the latest news and products - truly like nothing else we have in the community.
MonkeyfingeR is a fresh, exciting Canadian yoyo manufacturer started by Ray and Todd with a focus on doing things differently with unique twists. What has always caught my eye personally about MonkeyfingeR is that they've never been afraid to be bold with their yoyo designs. They come out with some of the most interesting shapes and colors I've seen in yoyos for quite a while. They always keep it fun and lighthearted while keeping quality as a priority.
My hope is that everyone involved in this partnership can feed off of everyone else's passion and excitement. This is a great new step for Rethinkyoyo and I'm so excited for all that's going to come about through it. And be excited, because more new tutorials are on the way for the site, along with even more changes and updates that will keep improving your experience with the site and your yoyoing in general.
