Well it’s been a year since I started “Science for SEO” and how time flies! The picture above is of “Malcolm T Frog” who shared my bathroom in Goa (India), and who really enjoyed jumping around when the shower was on and sticking to the wall. He was cool and I often wondered what he thought about all day long. Maybe frog equivalent of seo and computer science.
I have made a lot of good friends and met some really interesting people as well. I’ve really enjoyed sharing my passion with you and I learnt a lot myself as well. It’s been great to receive your comments and to open up the discussion that way. I also really appreciate you dropping by and coming to read my stuff. It’s flattering that you consider my work interesting enough and that you subscribe to the feed (if you do). I would probably still write this stuff if nobody read it. Why? Because I like it, and it’s a good place to get my own thoughts in order. Without you all though, it wouldn’t be half as good, so thank you.
These were the top 5 most popular posts this year:
I’d like to thank the guest writers I’ve had post over here as well, they did a fantastic job and I an so honoured that they took the time to do this. They are Donna Fontenot, Glenn Murray, Angie Haggstrom and Samir Balwani.
As a little extra for you, because I owe you as much, here are 10 things you didn’t know:
- TGIF was started when my mother complained that she didn’t understand anything I wrote about on my blog. I think she’s given up reading now, after being satisfied that she relate to something on SFS. It proved to be so successful that I thought something was wrong with my analytics. There is a bunch of people who only read TGIF, you know who you are! I’m glad you all liked it so much, it’s been a lot of fun. It now lives over at Seo Scoop and the mighty TWIG posts replaces it now, here on SFS.
- I used to run a different SEO blog back in 2006 under an alias. It did do well but I had to close it due to outside forces! Do you remember it?
- I took the photo in the header of this new layout
- I don’t like apples and I’m allergic to peppers (capsicum)
- I DJed during university to pay my bills (think trendy cocktail bar music. On vinyl of course)
- I won a prize from New Scientist for an essay I wrote on my thesis work
- I really want to go to Everest Basecamp
- I burst my eardrums diving
- I can stand on my head
- Sometimes when I catch a wave surfing I get scared and close my eyes (although I know this is a totally stupid thing to do)
So, that’s it. Thank you people, and here’s to another year up ahead.
