SEO class for Mom Bloggers

Sunday evening, I’m preparing a presentation on SEO for a group of “mom bloggers” who will visit the eBay campus tomorrow. While going through my slides I presented at eBay Devcon and PayPal X conference, I thought it is always a good idea to prepare your slides with the audience in mind. And boy was I happy I did that!

Off course, starting your deck on Sunday evening might be a little late for this, but fair to say, I just spent most of my weekend on the family. And with a really bad muscle pain in my back, I wasn’t looking forward to sit behind my computer to do this. But I cannot postpone it any longer…

While browsing over the sites of our guests tomorrow, the thought dawned on me… These ladies have more to teach me, than what I can tell them! They write really good content, manage wordpress blogs where some do it themselves, some hire a tech geek to maintain. All in all, they have more Twitter followers, probably drive more traffic and make more money blogging than I am! And they do all of that while taking care of a family. RESPECT!

The following bloggers will be there:

I foresee this is going to be a longer night than planned, as I definitely would like to give everything I have in my presentation tomorrow.  I hope I will provide these ladies with some useful tips and they walk away with a sense their time wasn’t wasted listening to me.

    Yesterday was such an incredible experience. I thought that I had a pretty good handle on SEO, and with your lessons I now realize I have a lot of work to do! I really appreciate the time you took. Looking at all of our blogs first you were really able to tailor your lesson for us. Thank you for taking the time.

    @selfish Mom
    Seriously, I had lots of fun preparing my new slides and chatting with all of you.
    I loved the interactivity and the questions. I have lots to learn from all of you, as you manage to build a business AND manage a family.

    Drop me an email when you would like to catch up on some of your questions.
    Happy to work with you on some of these.
