Happy New Year

Updated December 31, 2011

This is my last post of 2011, and probably the most difficult to type, as I’m doing it on a borrowed netbook.

My computer finally gave up the ghost this morning, after 2-1/2 years of 16+ hours a day, 7 days a week abuse. I guess I can’t complain… Dell probably didn’t figure on that kind of use when they designed that laptop. The keyboard was worn naked long ago, so it’s a good thing I can touch-type.

I won’t have another computer ’til around Tues. or Wed. of next week, but I wanted to pop in and wish everyone a safe and happy New Year, and a very prosperous 2012.

To those that have stuck with me throughout the year, thank you. Since last month, you’re sticking by me and Lisa, my “partner in crime”.

Which reminds me…

Lisa, Happy New Year to you and yours, as well. Having you as a partner is the best thing that happened to me in 2011 and I’m sure we’re headed for bigger and better things together. [Read more…]

Come and Get your Stocking Stuffer!

Updated December 23, 2011

I can’t supply stocking stuffers for every one of my friends, followers and colleagues. But I can offer something to at least a few of you.

Somewhere on the 20 pages accessible from the top navigation bar of this site, there are three (3) clues, one on each of three different pages. Find all three clues, and you’re in for a treat.

And just to make it interesting, I’m going to print the clue in a different color. Maybe something like this.

There’s a URL, a price and a Discount Code. Find ’em all, figure out what to do with ’em, and you’ll be one of the winners.

You’d better hurry, though. only the first ten people to find all three clues and take the necessary action will get their stocking stuffer this year.

Merry Christmas! I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful Christmas holiday, surrounded by your friends and family! And I hope the lucky winners enjoy their gift!

It’s December… Time for a Little Philosophy

Updated December 15, 2011

Every now and then, I like to post something that has nothing to do with SEO, IM or content strategy. Seems like December always turns out being when such whims strike me.

I sat down to write such a post this morning, when it suddenly dawned on me that I had already posted what I was typing once before. A little searching unearthed a post I did in December a few years ago, on another site.

So in the spirit of recycling, I decided it would be easier to run that post again here, rather than to write new one, rehashing the same stuff.

Santa Socrates – the Jolly Philosopher

I recently updated my Last Will & Testament. As is typical, in the first paragraph, I stated that I was of sound mind and body. At least half of that was inaccurate, while the other half would probably be contested by a number of those that know me. [Read more…]

Pssst… Now for What your Client Really Thinks

Linotype hot-type machineI started my copywriting career in the days of dragons, wizards, hot-type and later, Compugraphics typesetters. Most of you weren’t born yet. In fact, many of your parents were probably still virgins.

My first weekly column was in a weekly tabloid magazine in Texas, and part of my job was to set my column on the Linotype the night before they went to print. [Read more…]
