Is SEO bullsh*t or what?

Many of y’all know that I’m a web monkey – my dayjob is building & working on websites. I’ve been doing this for over 15y and consider myself to be more of a business consultant with some technical skills. I’ve learned a fair bit about SEO along the way. I started a newsletter on January 21, with the objective of attracting an audience. For ‘SEO purposes’ the newsletter issues are also available on my site (though published a few days after subscribers get them). A couple of SEO points I picked up during my years – pretty straightforward, basic stuff: … Continue reading

Do you know about the Google Chrome comic by @ScottMcCloud?

I’ve always loved comics – except for an 18 year gap in which I forgot they existed. When I was little I read any comic I could get my hands on: those 3 pack plastic bags in pharmacy spinner racks (my only source for the longest time) Archie digests Tintin Daily & Sunday funnies The Phantom (aka Bataal) (when in India) Amar Chitra Katha (Indian history, mythology, folk tales – sold in India or sometimes Indian grocery stores in the US) In high school I discovered comic book shops and spent most of my allowance there every Wednesday.
