I’ve started taking this cool online class that teaches SEO techniques. It’s called, ironically, SEO-Techniques. I’m adding their site to my blogroll. It’s free, and I’m learning a lot. I recommend it so far, and I’ll post an update when I finish the class and have fully implemented the techniques on my website. One of the best things is that it repeats. So check it out.
I so misunderstood SEO. I have a million tags for this blog, for instance, which are totally unnecessary. I’ll be cleaning them up soon.
I’m still negotiating some writing gigs, and continuing to write for my main client. And, of course, I’m still sending out emails. I’m beginning to realize I need to do more than just cold email. I need press releases, maybe an ezine or enewsletter, an SEO site, and some cold calls.
The past few days have been interesting. My caregiver has been unable to watch my daughter, so I’ve had to become quite creative. Working during naptime and after her bedtime has been pretty successful — except for the couple of nights I fell asleep while putting her to bed. Luckily I was able to wake up during the night and continue.
In the meantime, the next several months I will have to investigate daycare (aaack!!) Luckily I have this cool new laptop, with wireless, so I can hang out near the daycare in my favorite coffee shop and still work.
No one said this would be easy. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
