The best blog ever!

OK I am simply doing marketing with this post. I was reading on some of the search optimization stuff for blogs and the title is one of the most common search entries.

It did make me think about search engine optimization. (If you don't know what this is, a simple explanation is that when someone is searching for you, your site comes up early and often. Many search engines use criteria to move things up in the listings) If you do simple things what I have seen is that you automatically move up in the listings.

My simple list;
Frequent posts.
Well titled information (Simple)
Use site development that is easy for search engines to discover.

My hints are strictly for the amature. If you have a business, I suggest employing a professional like Stuart to get it done right!

4th of July update

It was full of excitement and fun. We had several of the neighbors over for the traditional barbecue and drinks and then went to set off lots of fireworks. We were a bit hesitant after Kevin had already caught the field on fire and almost got my fence, but with his solid work with the garden hose all worked out.

Caden learned a good lesson about not putting fireworks on top of things as the entire crowd was bombarded with Saturn Missiles. Carsen got the worst of that with a small burn on his leg.

All it all a great time was had by all and the next day was WAY too early for everyone.

Maybe my favorite holiday?

July 4th is definitely the most relaxing. An extra day off, everyone is happy, it is warm (Well ok, hot) and you get to have a few beers with the neighbors and blow some stuff up.

I got a couple of rounds of golf in, good food and some down time. I am getting ready to go into a fast time of the year so this is good timing.

And of course none of this could be done with out freedom.
