Thrilled to Become a Moderator at Cre8asite Forums!

Cre8asite Forums
Greetings from Inside the SEOigloo!

I am exceedingly honored to have been invited by Kim Krause Berg to become a moderator of the SEO category at Cre8asite Forums.

Former moderator Rand Fishkin has found it necessary to turn his attention elsewhere (he’s a busy guy!) and I will do my best to pick up where he has left off, keeping the Cre8asite Forums exciting, hospitable, and spam-free.

How Cre8asite Can Help You

Cre8asite is one of the SEO/SEM industry’s most respected forums and, perhaps, needs little introduction. I am always recommending that people become members there. You will find all levels of skill represented. Cre8asite’s membership includes seasoned experts such as Bill Slawski and Barry Schwartz, but also extends an incredibly warm welcome to complete newcomers.

Cre8asite Forums’ motto is there is no such thing as a ‘dumb’ question, and new members immediately see the way this is put into action within the many different categories.

What is immediately apparent at Cre8asite is the non-judgmental, education-oriented atmosphere. If the sometimes-hostile, contentious, or juvenile aspects of certain Social Media sites are off-putting to you, you are in for a happy surprise at Cre8asite Forums. Discussion is always respectful there, and I really appreciate the level of maturity of the members.

Whether you’re not sure what a title tag is for, or you want to talk about latent semantic indexing, you will find your questions, theories, and comments taken seriously. Membership is free, and I will be the first to attest that belonging to Cre8asite has made me a more confident, well-rounded businesswoman.

My hope in becoming a mod of the SEO category at Cre8asite Forums is to be of real help to newcomers and to assist in facilitating truly educational discussions about this facet of the industry. I also hope to have plenty of chances to talk about Local Search issues there, and I would love to see any of my readers walk in the Cre8asite door.

Because so many of us are small business owners or independent contractors, much of our work time may be solo time. I have found that having the opportunity to chat with peers, in a non-competitive environment, has been of immense help to me on many different levels. It is wonderful to find a resource where I can talk to people who care about what I care about, professionally.

I want to offer my most sincere thanks to Kim Krause Berg and all of the admins and moderators at Cre8asite for the warm welcome they have given me to this family-style industry fixture.

    As one of the Cre8asite team, let me say how delighted I am that you accepted to become a moderator there, Miriam. You’ve already been contributing in a major way so to move ‘the other side of the counter’ is no great challenge. It’s a fun place and you’ll help to make it funner. (Like you I love language, but words seem to evolve. :) )

    I’m all for things being ‘funner’, Barry!

    I was really so excited when Kim invited me, and I know this will be a learning experience for me. I am just beginning to form a picture of how hard everyone works there to make Cre8asite such a quality forum.

    Thank you so much for the welcome, Barry.

    Miriam, it’s really cool [backspace] [backspace] [prepare professional voice] it’s quite outstanding to have you as a co-moderator: you’re *made* for the place!

    I’d say I’m feeling both cool and outstandingly happy about the whole thing, Ruud.

    Yay! Yay! Yay!

    Or – charmed, I’m sure.

    As I already got out ‘the band’ for you at Cre8 I will just add a Huzzah! Hurrah! Hooray! to your intention to spotlight Local Search.

    The potential of this ugly duckling is being ignored by so many. Or perhaps that is a good thing? Perhaps a mysterious (profitable) dark silence is best?

    Congrats again, Miriam. And a heartfelt thank you to your supportive husband – who now has to sleep for two. :)

    I am pretty lucky in the way Liam supports everything I ‘get myself into’. He is seriously proud of me today:)

    Iamlost, your contributions to Cre8asite over the past few months have been a real bright spot for me. New members do come and go sometimes, but I have absolutely noticed your terrific, consistent participation there. You add a great deal of value to the forums and always manage to add something to the conversation that I find myself saying, “hey, I hadn’t thought of that,” about.

    I really appreciate the kind congratulations. A happy day!

    Thanks, Dave! I appreciate it. It’s a really fine opportunity for me. Great folks at Cre8.

    Miriam, I am so glad I was able to find you to work on my newest project and I look so forward to the outcome. You have always been an inspiration to me.
