I haven't posted since June 20, 2012. The best reason I can come up with is that my fingers have been blue. 2012 was a tough year. I didn't expect that the cloud that hung over my head would cause me to not want to put my thoughts down, but... Continue reading

I'm not mad enough, yet, to snap. ;-) I watched Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close on Monday night and it made me feel very fortunate to be alive and not a "survivor" of the 9/11 tragedy. Tear jerker!
Toggle Commented Jun 20, 2012 on Unintentional Vacation: Day 20 at My Shadow Hates Me
It's been 20 days since I started my unintentional vacation. Many people have asked if I've "enjoyed my time off" and in all honesty, I have to say "not really." I've been hard at work; yes, finding a new opportunity takes work. I've updated my resume, gotten references in order,... Continue reading

I was recently asked to come up with some ideas on how we can improve SEO and reduce our SEM budget. And, it's not the first time. I admit that I've always believed that businesses shouldn't pay for clicks around their brand. Afterall, if someone is searching for your brand,... Continue reading

It's just a thought... What I've learned from search engine optimization (SEO) is that content is key. When I created resource centers for targeted keywords, my organic rankings jumped. When I created a topical blog around a targeted keyword, my organic rankings skyrocked. Why? Because resource centers and blogs are... Continue reading

It just disappeared from the grocery store aisle. I can vividly remember the empty shelves of where it used to be... Do you remember it? It was a 70's treat that we loved! We fought over who would mix it. We'd repeat "Fruit Float, Fruit Float, Fruit Float, Fruit Float"... Continue reading

It's been part of my job for years but honestly, I usually have little time to really focus on it. These days it's haunting me. It's haunting... Continue reading

And I learned first hand what responsive process management is all about - to a consumer like me. I’m on vacation... Citi just called to check on a phone inquiry they just received.
