Why I Keep Blogging About Search

I have been writing consistently on search, seo, sem, Google, etc for over six years now. It is a long time, but there are others who have been writing about search consistently longer than I have. By consistently, I mean, really never stopping in the six year plus period. All together, I have written over

Paper Cut : Recommend Neosporin

Yesterday morning I got a nasty paper cut on my middle left hand finger. I am not exactly sure where it came from, but I am pretty sure it happened between 6:10am and 6:50am. All day yesterday, it was bugging me when I was typing. I complained on Twitter once. I am not the type

Pretend Sleep Walking To Rest During Bathroom Run

Often when I walk to the bathroom, down the hall from my office, I decide to do so, with my eyes closed. There is something refreshing about walking and having your eyes closed. I am not sure what it is. But when you are exhausted and tired, try it. Of course, I am a bit

My Favorite Movie Type Got To Be Bloody & Deadly

I rarely watch movies. That includes watching movies at home and especially at the theatre. I assume it will be an even longer time until I see a movie again in a theatre (got a kid now). But I do watch most the movies I end up seeing, on flights to conferences. I often pick

Bureaucracy Is No Match For My Efficiency

Yesterday, my daughter applied for her first passport at the local passport office. I was a bit nervous going in the middle of the day, between two conference calls, to get her a passport, but I came prepared. I arrived at the passport office, meeting my wife and daughter there. We parked in the spots

Getting Sick on Jewish Holidays

Wednesday night is the start of Passover and that means I go offline for four work days, completely offline. It also means that I might get sick. I typically fall ill on Jewish holidays. I am not sure why. But if you count the times I get sick, the majority of them, fall out on

Do I Have Over Efficiency Syndrome?

I am mad about being efficient. Mad about it. I was telling someone that I am not sure if I can become more efficient then I am now. Honestly, I am sure there are ways I can be more efficient. But I didn’t say that. I gave her an example of how crazy I am

Liquid Soap With Beads Feels Messy

Some how, a bottle of Shea Butter SoftSoap got into my bathroom, don’t ask me how. So the past few days, I kept washing my hands and then having the urge to wash my hands again. I didn’t pay enough attention to care why. But last night, I looked and noticed there were little beads

Catch Up Day – Back in New York

Sorry for not posting anything today. I am in catch up mode. I landed last night at about 5pm, got home at about 6pm. Brought our bags upstairs and then went to work until about 7:30pm to do some critical things. Then all day today, was a lot of catching up. You would think, that
