Bruce Clay Housekeeping 07/07/2008
Hi, kids. It’s the first day back after the delicious, most relaxing three day break ever which means one thing – OMGZ there’s a lot of work to do! With so many nuggets and developments and news bits floating around my head, I thought sharing them with you would help me des-tress and get it all out there.
So, without further ado, here’s all the Bruce Clay stuff going on that you need to know about.
If you’re a content writer, programmer, SEO analyst, analytics fan or any mix of the four, and you want to work for a company that believes, practices and preaches ethical SEO, send us your resume. [Please! –Susan]
All fluff and pitch aside, things are happening and coming together at an amazing pace right now. Maybe it’s the recession and companies need to hire an SEO vendor they can trust to get them visibility without encroaching on bad areas, but we have some great things happening right now. Interesting projects are coming in, wall-sized white boards are filling up (next we get to write on the walls!) and we’re literally bursting at the seams. As much as new people often scare me, we’re hiring. In all areas. Right now.
If you’re in Southern California and interested in joining the team, I’d encourage you to check out the Bruce Clay, Inc. employment page and see if you’re a fit.
Where In The World Is Lisa?
I’m asked a lot what conferences we’re going to next, whether we’ll be liveblogging and if Bruce will be presenting. To help put some of those questions to rest (and save my inbox some), here’s a short list of where we’ll be in the coming months.
- BlogHer (July 18-19): Later this month I get to head up to San Francisco and experience my first BlogHer. I’m quite excited. Not only will I get to connect with other women who blog and share war stories and hugs and bond, but it will be my first face-to-face with Heather Armstrong, the woman who is secretly living the life that I want. You have no idea what represents for me. I hope I’m brave enough to introduce myself to her. The safe bet is that I sit in the front row, stare and then look away when her eyes are about to meet mine.
Also, no liveblogging. I’ll be attending the show like a normal person and reporting on what I learned once I return.
- SES San Jose (August 18-21): Next month is the big SES show and Bruce Clay will definitely be there. I also hear a rumor you’ll be getting all three Bruce Clay Writers, so how lucky are you? We’ll be liveblogging, Bruce will be speaking, and there will be lots of other team members to talk to and field your questions. We’ll also be doing some SES speaker interviews before the big show, so look for that.
- BlogWorldExpo (September 20-21): Two blogging conferences in three months? It’s like Christmas! After having way too much fun last year, Bruce is sending me back to BlogWorld to relive it. Again, no liveblogging. I get to be a normal person for a few days. Or at least, try to convince people that I’m a normal person. It’s probably good the show only lasts a few days.
I’m also hoping to have a blog interview with BlogWorld CEO & Founder Rick Calvert, so I’m pretty excited about that as well.
The SEO Newsletter Is Going Monthly
Starting on July 15th, our biweekly SEO Newsletter is going back to its roots and once again becoming a monthly publication. It hurts us a bit to do it, but with all the traveling, conferences and internal projects, we need the lighter schedule to ensure we maintain the quality of the newsletter we put out. I mentioned we were hiring, right?
There are actually two more really big announcements to make, but I’ll save them for their own post when the time is right. Yeah, that’s right; I’m going to make you wait a little more.
