Big Sur: Gorgeous, Relaxing, Epic.

Posted by on August 26th, 2011

Behold: the sun rising over Big Sur about a week ago. I was on vacation (aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh) and snapped this with my iPhone camera right as the sun was coming up over the trees. Gorgeous. It was great to get out of LA and back into nature for a while, and definitely made me feel secure in my choice to move out of the city and back to the farm, which is happening alarmingly soon! My phone battery died shortly after we entered the campground, and there was little to no signal anyways, so I enjoyed two blissful days in Big Sur free of electronic interference–no email, no internet, no calls. As the sun rose on our last day, I charged up my phone at the camp shop so I could grab a few shots of the area before we left. Sunrise over the hills is something special.

Google Analytics Individual Qualification

Posted by on March 3rd, 2011

I’ve been heinously busy the last two week with end of month and beginning of month client work, so this site has seen no improvements or work whatsoever, except that my host upgraded my WP for me. Thanks guys! But I did manage to get through my Google Analytics Individual Qualification (GoogleIQ). If you don’t know what that is and want to, here’s the GA IQ FAQ, which should get you your daily dose of abbreviations all in one go, but the gist of it is: The Google Analytics Individual Qualification is a proof of proficiency in Google Analytics and of course Google Analytics is: a free service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about the visitors to a website. The product is aimed at marketers as opposed to webmasters and technologists from which the industry of web analytics originally grew. It is the most widely used website statistics service Which is to say, I’m now officially certified as being reasonably competent to analyze statistical information about website traffic and use said data to make decisions that will improve traffic or conversions or what-have-you. I have to say, taking the test reminded me of taking the SATs rather a lot. Logic questions, multiple choice, the I, II, III questions–it’s all very SAT-like.
