I just got an email from seomoz.org that my article about link building for non profits was approved for publication!
Meh, what can I say? It’s retail. But it is a job. I am learning a lot about explaining technological jargon in layman terms. And I’m brushing up on my people skills. So I can’t complain, its a good learning experience. I’m still doing the SEO consultant thing in hopes to gain enough experience to land a job with a local company. So far I’ve put 3 websites on the front pages of search engines one of which is located in Australia.
On a few brighter notes I’m number one in my fantasy football league! And I’m moving closer to obtaining a Master Status on Experts-Exchange.com. Check it out:
I’ll write a longer post later. But today is my last day at Mercy & Truth. I’ve been here for 2.5 years. Its been great, I’ve learned a lot about myself and I’ve grown tremendously. I’m going to miss everyone at Mercy & Truth. I’m going to start working for t-mobile located inside the Great Mall in Olathe, KS so stop by to see me and buy a phone! I’m also going to start doing some SEO consulting. Hopefully I can build enough experience to land a job with a local SEO company or..well. Well see. Take Care every one!
So we made the trek back to Kansas from Arkansas. It was pretty uneventful, well except for changing Preston’s diaper in a McDonald’s parking lot at the main entrance while patrons strolled by. Now I’m back at work, getting educational DVDs made for our birth center and planning choreography for tomorrow’s ‘Sing for your Supper’ Mercy & Truth is participating in. I’ll be playing a background dancer holding a giant syringe and stuffing a pillow up my shirt portraying a baby bump. Oh yeah, be jealous. Be very jealous.
Here a deer there a deer everywhere a deer deer! Ole Shawnee has a problem Ee i ee i OH NO! Another deer!
I began my day as usual. I got up, kissed my wife and child good-bye as they slept then left to go to work. It was around 6:50ish. I made the turn on to Renner when all of a sudden a flash of brown and white caught my eye then WAM! I hit the deer. I watched in my rearview as the deer hit the asphalt, stood up and ran off the road. Me? I kept driving, where there is one deer there are five more behind it. The damage was very minimal, a smashed headlight and bent hood. I’ll post some pictures later. Continuing my drive to work I began to laugh. A few days prior to my accident a protestor stood at the general location where I hit the deer speaking out against the decision to decrease the deer population in the park. I heard that the normal density for these animals should be 60 per square mile, in Lenexa the density is 200 per square mile. Hey maybe someone should to a remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Birds” in Lenexa and call it “Deer”. I read in the Shawnee Dispatch a few resident concerns where how inhumane it would be. Really? Inhumane? So I guess its more humane for the deer to get hit by a car receive a broken rib which will puncture the lung leading to a very slow and painful death choking on its own blood. Or better yet, don’t do anything and let them all starve out. Inhumane to have to hunters kill off the deer?
