dmoz returning from the grave

After a few months of being in a complete coma-induced state, dmoz appears to be showing signs of life.

Now, it’s only the Editor’s Section that’s back online, but submissions should be soon to follow, right?  I don’t mind that the editors have some time for theirselves first.  Clear out some old crap, some of those submissions that have been sitting in the queue for probably close to year, maybe even more.  Or hey – wipe out existing pending submissions altogether and start with a clean slate.

Blog Tag – 5 Things About Lyndseo

Seven days ago, Jeff Puvler started the SEO Blog Tag game. Dazzlin’ Donna has tagged me, so here we go! Five things you didn’t know about me – Lyndsay Walker.

  1. I have a huge crush on Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts. The irony is that only 18 months ago, I didn’t even know what a “down” was, and now I’m a huge football fan.
  2. I HATE snow and cold. And yet I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba – also known as “Winterpeg“. What’s that? It’s -40? What else is new. I was born and raised in the Niagara Falls, Ontario area though – I sure miss their winter climate.

Search Marketing Expo – June 2007

At SES Chicago, Danny announced that his new company, Third Door Media, would be having a search engine conference in June of 2007 – called Search Marketing Expo.

I was really stoked to hear about this until I saw the date – SES Toronto is the following week.  SES Toronto is my best bet at attending conferences in 2007 since it doesn’t require leaving the country, and airfare from Winnipeg to Toronto is fairly reasonable.  Plus I know so many people in that area, I’d probably bypass hotel accomodations for mooching off of family and friends.  I was excited to have my SE friends in my territory, in my home province.

What a Super Proposal!

So, I’m a football fan. Moreso of the Canadian Football League, but this year I’ve definately been getting into the NFL quite a bit more.

I’m reading about this guy, JP, who is trying to raise money to buy a 30 second ad during the SuperBowl to propose to his girlfriend. Now, let’s be fair here. JP is his alias – obviously, this is creating buzz and he doesn’t want his girlfriend to find out. Certainly JP could be just about anyone right?
