Randall McCarley doesn’t let a hurricane (Katrina), or a new baby (born last week), slow him down. The site owner of 14th Colony Web Development and Promotion, Rand has been on a quiet mission to get inside the minds and stories of a variety of people who help make up the search engine marketing industry. And, it’s not just SEO’s he was after. He also interviewed me, the usability/holistic SEO rebel.
His questions were thoughtful. If he needed something clarified, he’d contact you to get the correct information. I had the impression he was naturally very curious about each person he sought out. That makes the interviews interesting reading.
The names on his list are not all “A-List” big names. Being a moderator for SEO Refugee, and participating in many SEO and web design forums, he’s chosen some folks whose names I recognize as being hard working, creative people who are devoted to their craft. They don’t seek fame and fortune (okay, I do. Just once.) and yet they bring their talent to the table. They don’t hide their passion.
The interviews start here, in SEO Interviews.
Speaking of Creativity
I love Barry Schwartz’s (aka RustyBrick) new, personal blog. He’s the genius behind the SERoundtable site, and famous for his team’s reporting at Search Engine Strategies Seminars. For the “real Barry”, peeling away the mask, we get to see Cartoon Barry. It’s a clever and fun blog, but then, so is Barry!
