Hopefully everyone had a wonderful weekend - this week you get to send in questions that you have and we'll attempt to answer them.... they can be about anything business related - we'll post them as we get them this week. If we don't get any questions then we won't post anything till Friday.

Hope your week has gone well - sorry for the lack of posts - definitely been busy here this week. This weekend we hopefully will be able to catch up a bit and bring you more posts next week ... I'm not complaining though, being busy is good.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We had a festival in our town and Haley got Friday off, so we had lots of fun. It didn't rain as much as it could have, so we were soggy but not swamped, so that was definitely an answered prayer.

Till tomorrow,
have a wonderful day.

A pretty good blog from the folks that brought you search engine watch can be found here -

Looks like we may not get as much rain as they expect - so we won't need a boat... maybe just a small raft :o).

Till Monday,
Take care.

I was speaking to some folks yesterday and the topic went to business plans. Business plans aren't really that hard if you follow some templates that are available online. My belief is that without a plan - how can you know how your business is doing?

Details on creating a business can be found below.

Part 2 -
Part 3 -

We're supposed to get between 5 - 10 inches of rain here tomorrow. We usually flood when we get 3 or 4 inches. Hopefully we won't get that much but if you don't hear from me for a day or two that's what the deal is. I live on a cliff :o) - so the water shouldn't get here but you can never tell about power / phone lines etc.

Stay safe,

Hopefully everyone had a wonderful weekend. This week we hope to start working on implementing a couple of those tracking solutions... that is if everything goes well. This week we also plan on doing "best of" for the week - then next week we'll give you some updates on the tracking.

Till tomorrow,

Something newsworthy from Overture - seems like they're going to a default broad match in the near future. What that means is that it will be harder to pinpoint those keywords. Details can be found at the following link.

How was your weekend. ... hopefully you didn't work (the whole weekend) and got to do something fun. Haley and I Beta tested an online game and we had a blast.

Today we're swamped (with work - but I'm definitely not complaining), and we might be swamped with the remnants of the hurricane if the weather folks are right. So updates to the blog my be a little sporadic. What we may do is refer you to some things we've already done.

That is as long as we have power and we're not having storm. We'll try to implement the two trackers next week.

Stay safe!
