This year I am thankful for so many things, of course the top of the list is health and happiness of my friends and family. I have an amazing girlfriend, Lindsay, who I love very much and who supports me with all her heart. Thank you so very much Lindsay!
I won’t get into too much detail (gotta leave something for New Years right?) in this post but it has been an exciting year for me. I worked with a large marketing agency, ran a startup, now run a technical SEO team and am going to be going full swing into social media strategy consulting (once the new site is up) soon. I’m thankful that I have been presented with and have been able to create so many opportunities for myself (and hopefully for others), largely with the help of social media and all of you.
Thank you all so very much for reading my blog and interacting with me. Thank you for calling me out when I say something stupid and applauding me when you like what I have to say. Thank you for sharing my posts and telling your friends and contacts about this site (keep it up!). This site has grown mostly because of all of you. Without you guys, this site wouldn’t be much at all. I created this site in February of this year and started out with 0 readers and 0 subscribers. I now have hundreds of subscribers and thousands of readers. My traffic increases by over 75% (sometimes more) every single month, and that is because of you. I am so happy to know that you find my posts informative and interesting. Thanks to you I have now been recognized as a thought leader and influencer by adage, social media today, the customer collective, online marketing connect, junta42 (as an up and comer), guy kawsaki’s alltop.com (under marketing and social media), and by lee odden’s big list of SEO blogs. This has all happened within 1 year!!
I hope next year that I (and the site) will continue to grow with all of you. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and ideas with all of you while continuing to learn from and interact with all of you. I have a lot of plans for 2009, it should be an exciting year. I hope that all of you will continue to help make this blog a success.
I wish all of you and yours a very happy thanksgiving and to all of you, here’s a big
