Distraught Woman in Courtroom

It's happened to you, hasn't it?  You were scrolling on Facebook for who-knows-what reason when a picture caught your eye.  The title made some benign and fairly uninteresting statement but followed it up with a zinger like "you won't believe what happened next" or "number three will shock you!"  You couldn't resist.  You had to accept the challenge.  I mean, either you would get to prove the title wrong or you would infact be shocked.  Either way, it was going to be pretty awesome right?  More times than not, though, number three was not very shocking, you could believe what happened next and you were left feeling underwhelmed.  ... what happen next?

I recently came across an article that The Conversation put out almost a year ago.  I loved the article almost by the title alone, "Why some kids can't spell and why spelling tests won't help".  I'm a terrible speller—just awful!  So, I was looking forward to some great discovery about why.  Secretly I was hoping for some definitive proof that I am a genius because I can't spell.  As it turns out there was no really definitive answer to the question at all, but it is possible that I wasn't taught well.

Bring Halloween to the Office

Halloween is oh so much fun, and this year, it's on a Friday, which means the office gets to participate in the dress-up fun!

Although many may be under the assumption that getting festive for Halloween could send an unprofessional vibe to your clients, I'm in the camp of people who think its a great way to interact with them, and to show your personality in a light, fun way. Plus, are we really going to let the kids have all of the Halloween dress-up fun?

The added bonus is that your clients who are on social media will LOVE the pictures posted of your costumes.
It's a great way to highlight your business and could even lead your clients to sharing your photo to their network of friends, which increases the possibility of gaining new clients! 

So, here's a round up of a few DIY Halloween costume ideas that are work-friendly and definitely fun. 

I am eager to wrap up this comprehensive series on Search Engine Optimization.  I think it is appropriate to end with the business owner, but I must admit that it might be a little anti-climatic.  Perhaps my message to business owners about what they should do could be summed up in just one word: Utilize.

But, why use one word when you can use 500, right!?

Welcome to Part 3 of How to do SEO.  This is the post on the concept that started it all.  As I mentioned in Part 1, this whole idea started when a copywriter asked me what she should be worried about when it comes to SEO.  Though we've take a look at what Designers and Developers should be doing, we will now get to look at what Copywriters should be doing.
