By: Thos003 Thu, 01 Jul 2010 18:54:39 +0000 Hey you give me a pest control story about your spiders with original content and I will post it for you.

…and BTW, when do I get a follow back from you on twitter so that I can DM you?

By: Alan Bleiweiss Thu, 01 Jul 2010 02:30:36 +0000 Ah but Thomas, to me, until you took the time and effort to have it placed on a shirt, it was just an in-the-moment diatribe. Once it got onto the shirt, and you brought it to SMX, it became something much more, indeed!

As for the perception you speak about, I hear what you’re saying. I feel that way sometimes as well when I reach out to a “super star” in our industry.

Something I’ve come to learn in recent months though, as more and more people recognize and reach out to me – it can become quite overwhelming given how much any of us has on our plate at any given time. And I’m by no means a super-star. So I can then extrapolate what it must truly be like for someone with 5, 10 or 20 times as many people wanting to connect.

That in turn has given me a new perspective on how it might be on the other side.

In any case, you’re quite welcome. It’s good to know that I have a pest control guy in my network! Ya never know when those pests will come along:-) (Remind me to tell you about the time I had thousands of tiny little spiders on my ceiling, or the time my house was nearly overrun by tens of thousands of ants!)

By: Thos003 Thu, 01 Jul 2010 00:48:43 +0000 You give me too much credit for the shirt. You are the one that said it, I just quoted it.

But I am glad you liked it.

A little more insight. You were one of the few people that responded back to me on the SMX connect site. That impressed me. I know that a lot of people are busy, but sometimes I and others seem to get this feeling from the “SEO Super Stars” that they are too good for the little guys. Since SEO is just a marketing tool that falls under my stewardship, I don’t feel threatened by others in the SEO field. I’m not a SEO guy. I’m a pest control guy. =)

So thanks for taking the time to respond. In that sense I feel that you earned the shirt. And your ability to listen will get your more than just free t-shirts.

yeah – for all the times people say Matt’s “out to get us”, I really get a different reality when seeing him interact like that.

Oh and for the record, I can’t tell you how many time’s I’ve repeated the story of how my shirt came into existence!

By: Thos003 Tue, 22 Jun 2010 18:41:42 +0000 You&A with Matt Cutts – Loved this session. It’s nice to see that Danny can lay a hard hit so lightly, or at least with a smile. I could feel his appreciation for both the frustrations of SEO practitioners and the weight Matt carries of being the online judge.

No system is perfect.

…Until that day when unicorns and kittens rule the world.
