So, after all the positive feedback (yeah, I am pretty frickin awesome) I received on Dolphinin’s Journal and the fact that I had a bunch of fun doing it, I decided to start a real blog. Below is the timeline and series of events that led to this monumental happening.
October 21, 2009
I realized I was the bomb. This didn’t come as a big shocker because I had always known that I ranked pretty high on the cool factor. What really cemented this was the following email I received from Dave Bascom, CEO and my boss at SEO.com: ”We’ve got to get more people following you on twitter. Your follower numbers are kind of weak.” When I read this, I realized that I must be really important for him to take a serious interest in my tweeples. I quickly came to the conclusion that if I was THAT important, thousands (if not millions) of people are waiting anxiously to read my every word.

I became addicted to #GNO on Twitter. It happens. I may seek therapy in the future. Anyway, I noticed that all the really super cool people (a shout out to all the girls-night-out ladies) have blogs. I read them. Every single one. OK- maybe I was entering more contests than reading content, but hey- I at least visited their sites. I once again realized as one of the coolest frickin people I know, that I needed a blog ASAP.

I began thinking of URLs and researching their availability on MadDog. I gained a love/hate relationship with domainers during this process. OK, maybe not love.
November 9, 2009
Gave up thinking of URLs and went to the brains of SEO.com. Many ideas were thrown around, all of which were frickin amazing. The best one (in my humble opinion) was frickinmom.com. When I heard this domain, I believe I heard bells ring and an angelic chorus sing. Thanks @robynstorms for suggesting it. However, when I went to purchase it (dun dun dun) it was gone! Dang Greg Shuey had overheard the discussion and snatched it up! My head was spinning, I couldn’t breathe… Luckily he sold it to me at a premium. I have to pay him $10 and bake him some cookies this Friday.
That brings us to today- my first blog post. I know; it’s a beauty.
