Season’s Greetings from inside the SEOigloo!
It’s a funny feeling when you spend the evening writing a blog post, and just before you hit that publish button, you wonder if what you’ve written will be of help to anyone…if anyone will find your post useful enough to take the time to leave a comment. In my mind, comments represent both a recognition of effort and a thank you. The SEOigloo’s readership has been small and select in 2007, and that makes Liam and I all the more grateful for each and every one of you who has taken the time during the year to say hello to us and share your questions and wisdom via comments. We’d like to thank each of you back for taking the time to recognize our efforts!
Lori, you are are most faithful commenter here, and I’ve been so delighted getting to work on projects with you in 2007. It’s an honor to know the woman who’s running the best Montessori site on the web! And, I’m very proud to count you as a new friend this year, with whom I’ve got so much in common.
David, Liam and I are so happy that we seem to have hit it off with you from day one. We feel really lucky to have gotten to know you, and you get our vote for best new SEO blogger of 2007! Thanks for being such a good friend to us, David.
Bill, whenever I get into a conversation with industry folks and we start talking about intricacies of the algo, your name always comes up, and the first thing everyone says about you is, “Bill’s the nicest man in SEO. I can’t tell you just how many times I’ve heard people say that, and every time, I absolutely agree! Thank you so much for your generosity in this industry. You have taught us so much this past year.
Matt, you know we voted for SBS a few days ago as our absolute favorite SEO blog. I remember so clearly how excited I got the first time I visited your blog and saw that you write for the Small Business SEO. Come to think of it, I’m still just as excited about that a year later! Your skills coupled with the wonderfully friendly and cheerful way you’ve so generously chatted with us this year has made 2007 great for us. Thank you, Matt, for your camaraderie and all the nifty things we’ve learned from you!
Christina, to say that you’re running the best EL Civics site on the web falls short of describing our admiration for your skills as a small business owner. You know what makes me smile? When I make my daily blog rounds, I notice that you’ve already been to half the places I’m visiting and I just light up to see you doing exactly what a small business owner should be to learn everything they possibly can about SEO/SEM. Way to go! It’s been a great pleasure to get to work with you and know you this year.
Mike, your top Local SEO blog rules the roost as far as we’re concerned, and it has become one of my favorite stops during the past year. I am learning so much from you and have really appreciated the chance of chatting with you. I’m so hoping we can get to work together in 2008. It’s a real treat to fraternize with folks who get it that Local search is just the coolest thing going.
Joe, I’ve appreciated the couple of times you’ve come by and commented here. I really respect the fact that you devoted yourself to becoming an accessibility expert and I’ve learned an awful lot from your 2000 posts at Cre8asite. I hope I can get to know you better in 2008, Joe, and I loved the opportunity of writing for your green site this past year!
Yuri, you’ve got such sharp eyes and a mind that sees things so many people overlook. I always count on getting a new idea when I read your posts over at Cre8asite, and I have nothing but respect for someone who is doing all they can to offer great small business owner education and improve the web. Thanks for being a commenter here.
Will, I think you are our newest reader, and I’m totally thrilled to have discovered what looks to be an awesome local search blog. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your blog better in 2008 and hope you will keep stopping in here to share what you know with us.
Sophie, one of the nicest things about the web is that it has let me meet great industry folks from all over the world. I’d not hesitate to recommend your firm as the most trustworthy web design company in Australia I know of. Thank you for taking the time to comment here!
Other commenters and friends I’d like to thank, but for whom I have no URLs (hey, guys, where are your URLs???) are Iamlost, g1smd, and Elizabeth and everyone else who has stopped by the SEOigloo this past year. I hope I’ll have the pleasure of seeing you here in the coming year.
To each of you, we send our heartfelt wishes for a wonderful, restful holiday season and a prosperous and fulfilling new year. We feel blessed to know you.
