When I woke up this morning I took a shower and I changed into the clothes I wanted to wear. I sat down at the table for a bite to eat which is a little strange because we don’t usually have breakfast around my house. I had a bagel with cream cheese annd a bowl of cereal. I also enjoyed a nice tall glass of orange juice. It was really good & I remember thinking that I should eat breakfast more often. After I finished I put the dishes on the side of the sink so I could take care of them at a convenient time. It was a busy day so I had to get ready to go out. I do like to stay current so I turned on the TV to the local news while I put myself together for the day. I brushed my teeth and my hair. By this time my dogs were all over me. They enjoy playing with me first thing in the morning. I try to take them for a walk in the morning because it seems to start my day off right. They enjoy it even though I never really have a lot of time that early. Once the dogs are walked & I have made sure they have water for the day, I am ready to leave for work.
I don’t know about you but it is a little bit of a commute to my office from home. Recently I’ve been watching several of our e commerce websites start to drop in the ranks. We had been positioned on the first page, but now they have dropped down to the 3rd and 4th pages in the search and one has really tanked. We finally hired a professional enterprise seo specialist to look into the problem. It’s really hurting the company financially. For those of you who don’t know what an enterprise seo professional is – they are the people who help sites to rank so anyone who does a search can find stuff in Google! Search engine optimization (SEO) is the science or art of getting a site’s search keywords to the top of a Google search. This is so over my head. But the person we hired is good and is implementing a number of changes. Hopefully the sites will start to rebound soon.
I have to drive all the way across town it takes me 35 – 45 minutes depending on the traffic. Sometimes it can take longer if there is construction or, god forbid, an accident. I also like to stop on the way in to the office to get some coffee. I know a lot of people like to start their day off with coffee like I do but I usually have mine cold. I like a mocha iced coffee myself and I recommend you try one if you have not already had one. After getting my coffee it is onto the freeway for an adventure full of merging lanes & donging traffic. It seems to me like no one knows how to drive right anymore. Does anyone else agree? I seem to see people every time I get on the freeway talking, or worse yet, texting while they drive. This is crazy people! Put your phones down! When I make it through that mess & finally get to work I am always very thankful.
After a long day of work I am always happy to be getting off. I enjoy my job but it is stressful to say the least. I always look forward to quitting time even though I have rush hour traffic to deal with. It seems like I spend way to much time in the car.
