I’m on a writin’ rampage!

In the last month, in addition to Critical Thinking for the Discerning SEO (more info on Critical Thinking), I’ve also added Common Sense Management, and the first two issues of my series, Livin’ Large – and on the Edge, and Livin’ Large – Crossing the Line. Next week, Livin’ Large – Any Regrets? will be released.

100% of the proceeds from Critical Thinking go to charity. Anyone that doesn’t have a favorite charity can feel free to just purchase it, and I’ll take care of getting your donation to a worthy registered charity, that doesn’t blow all their money on high CEO salaries and plush offices. Otherwise, just show me your donation receipt for the charity of your choice, and I’ll get you your free download information right away. [Read more…]

Another Critical Thinking Review, This Time on State of Search

A tip o' my hat!

A tip o’ my hat to ya, Claire!

I woke up to another review on my new ebook, Critical Thinking for the Discerning SEO, by Claire Carlile for State of Search. If I could wake up every day that way, we’d be raising some serious money for charity!

Claire did a very nice in-depth review on my ebook, giving her readers a tantalizing idea of what’s in store for them if they pick up a copy. It certainly isn’t the end-all, be-all, but I think it offers something for everyone.

Some folks are just buying the book, rather than picking out their own charity, which is fine. When it builds up to a respectable amount, we’ll figure out a place to donate it where it’ll do some real good. [Read more…]

In Dedication to Those that Need and Those that Give

Many of us have watched friends or loved ones slowly fade from some obscure illness, or suffer some loss that may have destroyed their life or piece of it. Whether stricken by cancer, a home burned to the ground, or a crushing financial loss, there is one thing that often can make the difference between a sense of defeat and renewed hope.

When friends and family appear at your side, offering whatever help they can, it means a lot. Some of you may have experienced this, many of you have probably offered that support to others. In either case, you already know how much it can mean to someone that’s experiencing total hopelessness.

I’m Psyched! New eBook Coming, and it’s Gonna ROCK!

Updated July 22, 2011

I am totally psyched about a new project underway here!

I’ve been thinking off and on for a few weeks about writing an ebook to put up here, but could never get my head wrapped around it enough to identify a good theme. Then the other night in the Dojo chat, we were talking about how unsuspecting noobs get sucked into believing all kinds of garbage, just because it comes from someone with a high post-count or appears on a well-known blog.

Since a lot of my early knowledge about SEO was picked up on blogs and forums, I can empathize with the folks out there trying to learn by osmosis. I started out reading a ton of blog posts every day, and racked up several thousand posts on various forums myself. It didn’t take me too long to figure out who was full of knowledge and who was full of hot air.

But it isn’t always obvious. And everyone may not have as sensitive a bullshit-ometer as I do. Hell, let’s face it, some people are just plain gullible, and believe everything they read. Hey! If it’s on the Internet, it must be true, right?
