Phew … what a week. Susan and I were so discombobulated with Virginia gone, we couldn’t remember what day it was most mornings when we arrived, but each day we kept our eye on the prize, and that prize is the weekend. And now I finally know it’s here because I’m writing the Friday Recap!

Welcome to another round of the Bruce Clay SEO Hot Tub. It has been tumultuous to say the least.

Hundreds of millions of people actually worked today (to their own dismay) due to the unfortunate disconnection of the life juice that is Facebook. For many, hours of countless stalking, telling friends what they ate and living vicariously through other’s lives came to an abrupt halt.

As I sit down to write this post, I realize I have some big shoes to fill. Not that anyone could ever replace our beloved @VirginiaNussey, but the wit, wisdom and creativity she brought every week to this blog is a tough act to follow.
It’s especially tough when the topic at hand is SEM Synergy, Virginia’s one-woman show, of which today was her last episode. Today on SEM Synergy, Virginia interviewed (Mark Robertson (@ReelSEO), founder of ReelSEO, a resource for online video marketing and video search optimization.
We also talked upcoming conferences, training and discounts, and said some final goodbyes to the Hostess with the mostess, Virginia. In the Webmaster Radio chat room, we laughed, we cried, we saw an image looking out the window of Virginia’s new home in Brooklyn, NY … all in all, a perfect farewell show.

Hey kids. First, a disclaimer: Without Virginia here, the blog is going to get a little herky jerky for a while as we sort out how to serve our clients and still provide you with sexy-delicious blog posts. This might mean you hear from me more often (look excited!) and this might mean I have to start beating other people in the company until they contribute. Don’t worry, Jessica will still be bringing you thoughtful and useful information on Thursdays so don’t unsubscribe just yet. [No pressure. – Jessica]
Right, expectations lowered? Awesome!

When I was a little girl I would often come home from school and cry to mum that so-and-so had better something-or-others, or prettier thing-a-me-bobs, or cooler what’s-a-ma-doodles. And that I wanted to get some too! As with all school aged girls I was desperate just to fit in. A point of difference was a [...]
