I Was Featured in Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce and Industry Newsletter!

From e-Life Discussions about Blackbird e-Solutions and the Search, Tech and Localization Industries

Check this out last month I was featured in the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce Newsletter!

I joined the chamber last fall and then attended a new members welcome event in January. During the event everyone had to get up and give their 30 second speech about their business. One of the ambassadors for the chamber, Jen Strobel of Superior Wash of PA and Accubright Systems LLC, heard what I had to say and approached me after the meeting. She said she was looking for help with getting found on-line, or Search Engine Optimization. We talked some and she contacted me a few weeks later. As you may have seen in my earlier posts, they are now a client. Afterwards I sent a note to the chamber to thank them and they were so excited about the success of the chamber meeting they decided to do an article about us in the Chamber Newsletter!

Localization project, Canada, Berks United and FC Blackbird

Busy, busy, busy. I have been working on a localization project that is kicking my butt. I won the project a few months ago as part of a larger project. Then got involved with some other projects and when I came back to this won last week I realized I forgot how big it was. So, I started right away. But, the saying goes. “If it can go wrong it will.” or Murphy’s law… something like that anyway. So, I planned on taking the weekend and banging out a bunch of it. Well, of course I discovered I had a trojan horse on my computer. Perfect! Spent the whole weekend cleaning that up. (I’m not sure it is completely healed actually. Then I discovered that I had to do a bunch of editing on the source file to be able to translate it correctly. Lost more time. So, a week and a half of little sleep and lots of stress. I’m coming down with a cold. What sucks is I’m heading to Canada for a tournament with my outdoor team Berks United early tomorrow. Really don’t need to be sick for a weekend of soccer and drinking. But, I’m a trooper. 😉

I’m excited about heading to our great white neighbor to the north. I haven’t been there for years. Not since Julian and I used to peruse Kingston. 😉 We’re going to London.. not Kingston but it will be great to be back, eh?

Before that though my O-30 Premier League team FC Blackbird has a play off game. We are in first place for regular play, so we play the last place team called Principal. They’re in last but we seem to have trouble with them for some reason. Hopefully we can break that tonight! I want to bring home the championship t-shirts!

Been a long time…

I seem to be slacking with my posts recently. I guess I’ve just been really busy. Seems to be a lot going on right now. This weekend I’m putting together a team for the Keystone Games you can check it out here. FCBlackbird Or the event on Facebook. It will be my first time using sports for advertising. 😉

This past weekend I was sick. I guess with the flu. When I was starting to feel better I realized that one of the best times is when you realize you are over an illness. Your mind becomes very clear and your body starts to feel strong again. It feels like you just fought a battle and won. I know it sounds a bit cheesy, but it does feel good…
