Introducing the SEO Quickfix Ebook

seo-ebook

A friend, and colleague, of mine, Aidan Henry has written a great SEO ebook called SEO Quick Fix.

He gave me a copy to review at Northern Voice 2009 and my life has been so crazy lately that I hadn’t gotten the time to share it with you.

If you don’t know a lot about SEO this book will be a godsend. If you are well-versed in SEO it’s a great reminder of best practices and I’m sure you’ll learn a thing or too. It’s definitely $25 well spent!

Vancouver Halloween Parties and Events – 2008

Halloween Haunt in Vancouver - Black Rose Cemetery

It’s that time of year again…Ghosts, goblins, pumpkins, candy, fog and full moons…Halloween is just around the corner. (Happy early birthday to Ryan too!)

This year a good friend of mine has put together his annual Halloween Haunt: Black Rose Cemetery. He’s taking food and cash donations. All donations will be given to the Vancouver Food Bank.

Rather than reinvent the wheel – I’ll send you along to Miss 604’s Halloween post, as she’s built a very comprehensive list of things to do around town at Halloween.

There’s always vancouverhalloween.com too.

What am I doing for Halloween? I’m going to enjoy handing out candy to the kids this year, as we’ve been living in a highrise for the last three years and didn’t get any trick or treaters. Now that we’re in a townhouse I’m looking forward to seeing all the little ones’ costumes!

What are you doing for Halloween?

Happy Thanksgiving Canada

It’s been a crazy busy fall so far but I like being busy. The only downside is that the frequency of my blog posting has dropped dramatically. I’ve been using Twitter a fair bit, and you can find me there on a daily basis: Jeremy Latham Twitter.

I’ve also launched a few new websites for clients recently:

I’m hoping to get a round of golf in tomorrow at one of the local courses, if the weather holds. But generally I think it’s going to be a fairly relaxed long-weekend. We’ll have some time to catch up on errands, chores, and sleep!

Have a great long-weekend. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

A busy week in Vancouver…

I’m lucky enough to be attending the EE Roadshow in Vancouver next Friday and then BarCamp Vancouver on Saturday/Sunday. It’s been a while since I’ve attended any tech events. So I’m really looking forward to the enthusiasm and great ideas that Vancouver’s tech events promote.

Having worked with ExpressionEngine (EE) for over a year now, I’m particularly excited to sit in a room full of people who also use it. Reading through the forums is great, and solves a lot of problems, but there’s really nothing like face to face discussion about topics of interest. Big thanks to Monique for making it happen!

And thanks to everyone who puts in the hard work to organize these events!
