Well, I never really professed that I was the best at keeping up with blogging, but I admit that 2007 hasn’t been the best year for keeping Lyndseo up-to-date. So what’s been happening?
In February, I accepted a position with WestJet , Canada’s leading low-cost airline. I was brought on to coordinate all the web analytics and SEO efforts, a job no one had done before.
Combined with jumping into the deep end of a very deep pool at WestJet, I began commuting from Winnipeg to Calgary, where WestJet’s offices are. For those not too familiar with Canadian geography, Calgary is 1,370km (850 miles) west of Winnipeg. Doesn’t make for too friendly of a daily commute, so I began living in Calgary during the week, and Winnipeg on the weekends. As fall approaches, my fiance and I are almost finished with our very slow and painful move to Alberta. I am here full time now, with Dave to follow after the September long weekend. He is the Web Programmer for Naylor Publications in Winnipeg, and he will continue his work in Calgary.
In June, I spoke on the SEO Don’t, Myths, and Scams panel at Search Engine Strategies Toronto. I feel it went well and am excited about my next speaking engagement – WebmasterWorld’s PubCon; located in Las Vegas from December 4-7.
So please keep tuned… as life starts to settle (or does it ever really?) I hope to keep this blog updated much more frequently.
