5 Things You Might Not Know About Me – Part of the SEO tag game

Greetings from inside the SEOigloo!

David Gale has started a game of tag in the SEO industry. See the tag tree. I got tagged by Rand over at 14th Colony, and now I’m supposed to list 5 things my readers may not know about me, and tag 5 other people.

1) The older I get, the more obsessed I seem to be growing with birding. Of the 7 days in the past week, I’ve spent at least a couple of hours birding on 6 of those days.

2) Last year I completed a paper theorizing that my mother’s people are connected with both the the Arthurian Legends and the great Norse Sagas. I come from some fierce, amazing folks.

3) I’m crazy about languages and my new one for this year is Icelandic.

4) I’ve been a vegan since I was a young girl. In case you’re not sure what that means – no meat, dairy, honey, leather, wool, silk or any animal products of any kind in my diet or daily life. I was drawn to this choice by ethical concerns.

5) I don’t know 5 bloggers who haven’t been tagged yet! I’m going to tag just one, because of this, and I tag Jim Boykin. I don’t actually know Jim at all. I’m just a fan of his blog. So, Jim, YOU’RE IT!

Birding Sonoma County Blog

Greetings from inside the SEOigloo!
I’m eager to share here a personal project my husband and I are now working on – the Birding Sonoma County Blog. When we’re not creating super websites for small businesses, we are avidly birding in our local area of N. California, and this blog will serve as our place to document our observations, sightings and field notes on the wild birds we so love.

So far as I’ve been able to discover, my region has no blog devoted to this subject, and with the abundant bird life we have here, I think this is really a needed resource. Our local Audubon Society chapter does maintain a web presence, and we have benefitted from it repeatedly, but it doesn’t enable the type of interaction that the newer technology of blogging provides. We’re so hoping that our bird watching blog will encourage neighbors to come share their tips, bird alerts and stories. Continue Reading »
