Hey lunch buddies.  This weekend was a blast.  My wife and I took our 3 kids to Disney’s on ice show over the weekend.  They had an absolute blast and it was fun to take them to a big event.  We also picked up our Christmas tree over the weekend which added to the fun.

From a work perspective things are starting to calm down from the Thanksgiving madness.  I have a consumer product goods (CPG) client who hit their first ever 1.5 Million organic visit day prior to Thanksgiving.  We were all thankful for that this […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.   Happy belated Thanksgiving to my U.S. subscribers.  I hope you had a restful day full of turkey, potatoes and of course football.

Everything above sums up my Thanksgiving.  Besides the Vikings losing, it was a great day.  It’s hard for me to complain when I have a day off of work and uninterrupted time with my wife, kids and other family.

The short week before Thanksgiving was crazy.  In fact, my apologies for not sending out a #SEOForLunch newsletter issue last week.  I was at the office with a colleague until 9pm finishing up […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I hope everyone is having a great start to their week.  Last week was full of catching up after a few days in Boston.  I was fortunate enough to have limited meetings which made catching up relatively easy.  This week looks like a great opportunity for getting ahead on deliverables.

On a personal front, the weekend was good (minus the Vikings losing AGAIN).  I was able to catchup on some housework and get some much needed car maintenance done prior to our nasty Minnesota winters.

Just a reminder that I respond to all emails. I’ve […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  I’m back from Boston.  It was a quick trip but a great mini get-away.  We saw quite a few attractions and the food was simply amazing.  Definitely recommend going if you’ve never been.

While on the plane home I wrapped up Dale Carnagie’s How to win friends and influence people in the digital age. I really enjoyed the book and found it valuable from both a business and personal perspective.  I wrote up a quick review for those looking for books to add to their reading list.

Hey lunch buddies.  I hope everyone had a great Halloween.   I know my kids sure did.  The girls dressed up as Buzz/Woody and my son was Batman.  There was definitely no shortage of candy this year between the multiple pre-Halloween parties and the bit of trick-r-treating we did last night. Another fun night in the books.

This Thursday my wife and I take off to Boston for a “long weekend” to celebrate our anniversary.  We are planning on doing a bunch of touristy stuff but if your local and have tips for us on what we absolutely […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  Last week went by insanely fast on my end. My little guy turned 5 years old on Tuesday – he requested pancakes for his birthday dinner so we took the family out to IHOP.   We followed that up by taking a dozen kids to an indoor playground this past Saturday.  Fun times at the LeRoy household.

On the business front, still wrapping up that new blog post I’ve mentioned in past newsletters.  I’m less concerned these days with getting new content out regularly but making sure it’s something extremely valuable for you guys.  So […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  What a great weekend.  My wife and I took the kids to the Minnesota Zoo Saturday.  It was only 60ish degrees and mostly cloudy so it was a perfect day to go check out all the animals without roasting.  I would have to say the “farm” continues to be my favorite part.  Can’t go wrong with a bunch of pigs, cows and goats!

I do owe each of you an apology. I said last week that you could look forward to a new blog post.  It’s in process but is slow to get completed. To […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  What a great weekend!  The family and I went to the apple orchard Saturday and picked a ton of fresh apples. We also grabbed our yearly pumpkins so the kids are pretty pumped to carve them up this coming week.

I can tell you first hand that there is nothing like eating fresh made apple pie while enjoying the Vikings move to 5-0 come Sunday morning.   Apple farms FTW.

This week is full of meetings and catching up on non-critical deliverable for clients.  I’m looking forward to the hours of cranking the tunes and […] Read more

Hey lunch buddies.  These last few weeks have been crazy busy on both the work and personal front. I’m looking forward to it slowing down a bit (ha!) and catching up on some family time and much needed Sunday football!

If you know someone who doesn’t have the time to stay up to-date with SEO best practices forward them this email.

Hey lunch buddies.  This past week went by really quick.  Work has been crazy busy and on the home front we celebrated our twin girls 3rd birthday.  The bounce house mentioned last week was a huge hit and fortunately I can report no injuries occured.

This week is turning out to be just as busy as the last.  Several big deliverables in the lineup in addition to a key meeting towards the end of the week.  To be honest, its a welcomed change of pace to take a break and write this newsletter.

Here’s to another productive week. […] Read more
