Rae said I needed to blog today since I haven’t done that since Monday. Pfft. Slave driver. ;)
Truth is, I’ve been busy playing with some awesome clients while I get things ready to head down to New York City for Search Engine Strategies New York. To you, SES NY means three days of kickass SEO education. For me, it means 16 more session to liveblog, more awesome speakers to meet, and the possibility of broken fingers. Woot!
If you are heading down to NY for SES, here are two things to look out for:
- Get there early for the IM Charity party that’s taking place on Monday night. It’s going to be awesome. The party’s going down at the Heartland Brewery, the sponsors are picking up the alcohol tab and all proceeds go directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The IM Charity parties have raised $100,000 to date, so let’s do some good and give back to help some sick kids. Plus, you get an excuse to come have a drink with me. ;)
- If you’re going to be around on Friday, our friends at Bruce Clay, Inc. are offering up their SEO Training class after the show. If you go, make sure you tell Bruce I said hello. And give him a hug for me!
And with that, check out our liveblogging schedule and keep an eye out for me during the show.
