Search engine optimization is not something you do once after you’ve built your site. Rather, it’s a living, breathing concept that needs to be built-in to, not just the development process, but your entire creative workflow. You need to keep your site updated with regular content (regular is subjective and relative to the content you’re providing), but you need to make sure it’s *meaningful* content.

Unrelated: my post categories suck. Moving on, I’m happy to see Absurdly Awesome is back from its seven month hiatus. And to think I finally removed it from my Friends link list not too long ago.

Check out their getting started page to learn more.
Forgive the lack of posts lately; since March I’ve been very tied up. At the beginning of last month I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled; the surgery went well (local anesthetics) and the recovery went even smoother.

Sorry about the extra downtime to anyone who was viewing Shattered Reality this afternoon. I was in the middle of updating WordPress when my server’s FTP crapped out, leaving me S.O.L. I submitted a help ticket and they rebooted the FTP daemon on the server and all’s well again.

I almost forgot to mention: some new projects are underway and will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
