Many of you remember when I first proposed to my, soon-to-be, new wife. It was on October 2nd of last year, when I asked Yisha to marry me with the help of Ask Jeeves, now Ask.com. Ask.com working with me on my proposal shows you something about our industry. I cannot count the number of blog entries, emails, trackbacks, comments and personal notes I received from the SEM community congratulating Yisha and myself. The gifts received by the search community, including gifts from friends from the SES/WMW conferences, the various forums I participate in, and from the search engine company representatives was overwhelming. Those are just a few reasons why I enjoy sharing these personal moments in my life with you guys. That being said, I hope to update Yisha & Barry.com a few weeks after the wedding, so I can share more of these moments with you.
The wedding will take place in St. Louis, this Sunday. I promised Yisha, that I wouldn't spend too much time online the week after the wedding. So that means I won't be able to contribute to the Search Engine Roundtable and Search Engine Watch blog over the next week or so. Ben Pfeiffer, Chris Boggs, Kim Krause, Nacho Hernandez, Shawn Hogan, Jeremy Schoemaker and Dan Thies have all graciously agreed to chip in while I am away. I feel comfortable and secure leaving the site in their hands while I am away for such a long period.
The RustyBrick creative guy designed this special logo for the blog for the week.
Off I go, to get married. Best wishes to you all. Hope I don't miss too much search marketing community buzz while I am away.
