Yes, it’s a few days late. (If by "few" you mean "seven.")

However, we’ve been busy wrapping up current projects and signing up quite a few new ones, plus kindergarten started last week so I’m still in a state of shock. At least she’s looking up to Disney princesses and not Lindsay Lohan.

But I digress….

We just published the latest issue of flyte log, our award-winning email newsletter (BTW, do awards from your mom count?) with a featured article entitled Increase Your Search Engine Visibility: Three Things You Can Do Today.

Enjoy.
