There’s nothing like returning to the bonfire to see how hot it really is. I was a rather good SEO back in the mid-90′s when I considered it fun to be one. Once everything was rigged by money, the work lost its thrill for me. Even though I moved into Internet software usability and user experience QA testing and usability/user experience web site design, and later, the art of information architecture, I was never able to sever my roots inRead more…

Somebody asked on Twitter the other day how to explain what a blog is to a client. I replied with something like, “Online diary or journal. Easy way to put up a web site.” You get 140 characters to “talk” in Twitter. So I had to be brief. She thought her client would most understand the web site part. I agree.

Most of you would decline and so did I, but not before we got into a bit of a discussion when the agency insisted I was wrong about engines and Flash. For their company name, their site comes up in the number one spot. This, they sayRead more…

When I started the Cre8pc blog, in 2002, blogging was nowhere as popular as it is today. Back then, blogging was still related to diaries and journals and often of a personal nature. Mine has evolved as trends change. Today, it’s the leading communication device that allows me to stay in touch with readers and friends.
