Last week my voice turned into a croak. That was a bad sign because I had a big weekend ahead. My daughter turned 18 years old and I was hosting a party for friends and family here. I made her cake and all the food. Every one could tell I wasn’t well but I pushed on. The party was a great success. Lots of fun for all the kids teenagers young people. I visited with my sister, whom I haven’tRead more…

Apologies in advance to my friends who are “working” in Las Vegas and Chicago at the two popular search engine marketing conferences and one user experience show – all going on this week. I’m at home, all warm and cozy and haven’t yet had to race to a press room or freak out over a dead laptop battery. Sheer heaven.

This week was powerful.

I give my kids every t-shirt I get while covering Search Engine Strategies conferences. They look forward to whatever is kid-friendly inside the SES earth-friendly canvas bags when I return home. While uploading pictures taken over Mothers Day, I noticed that my eldest son was wearing his SES shirt during our visit to Longwood Gardens. Playing with buttercup flowers…daughter, who went to her prom the night before despite breakup with boyfriend, and son who broke thumb sliding into second baseRead more…

I hate to admit it, but there are days when I take a look around at my so-called presence on the Internet to see how I measure up and, truth be told, I suck. One good Digg does not a famous person make. Usually I won’t be caught dead checking data, graphs, or incoming links. Why ruin a perfectly good day? Alexa is worthless, and yet now that the arrows are going in the down direction, I wonder that ifRead more…
