seoi absolutely loved this assignment. i felt that it was the first assignment that started getting a little deeper into the actual operations and syntax aspect of social media and SEO. I think the greatest part of doing SEO related things is that not only does it make it easier for engines to crawl your page, but i think it makes your webpage easier for a user to browse as well. by using structured hierecrchy with directories and root pages, you can make it a lot easier for a user to use a sitemap to cruise your site. I think that SEO is a very interesting topic because it is not down to an exact science yet. there are still lots of diferent ways taht differnt people and companies use to SEO your site, from interlinking, to using good meta destricptions, to using concise titles and clear directory structures.

digg1I really like the concept of Social Harbor as well. I think it is a great way to make your self seen on the internet to eliminate the guess work and mystery of a potential employer. I really like delicious and digg but i have to say i am a little biased to stumbleupon. im interested to see if the new media blog actually makes the front page of delicious or digg, i think itd be pretty funny if one of my friends stumbledupon my class website.

I’m so stuffed I feel like I could keel over and die…LOL

foigrasAnd so it begins. Luckily my first spill was actually something interesting to write about rather then the usual ice cream that i drop on my lap. Im blogging all the way from Vail, Colorado and we were eating at one of my favorite restaurants in the city, Sweet Basil.  The restaurant its self has been in Vail for over 30 years and is a favorite among both locals and tourists alike. We started off the meal with some fresh oysters and then went onto pork bellys. it was my first time eating pork bellys and let me tell you they are quite the treat, they are basically like giant cubes of bacon with spices and applesauce. then the foi gras came, for those of you who dont know what it is, hold up i will explain it in a little bit. I think i was just so excited to eat it that spill1i dropped it on my lap, we were at this same restaurant right before christmas and had the foi gras and it was superb.  this was not my fist time having foi gas though, i had it for the first time this past summer while traveling in Nice, France and i was blown away by it. It is describes as being one of the most unique foods in the world, for good reasons. Its texture is unlike anything, it literally melts in your mouth. Depending on how they cook it and how they serve it you are in for a myriad of tastes. BUT, how is foi gras made? well before you keep reading please let me warn you, if you dont know what foi gras is and you are a animal lover, i would stop reading. ok so you have been warned

forcefeedingFoi gras is a pretty controversial dish. It is made from a fattened goose or duck liver. Ok yea liver is pretty gross, but thats not why its controversial. The animal is fattened by putting a tube down its throat and it is then force fed corn until it dies of overfeeding. Yes, it is forced to eat until it’s stomach explodes. WOW THAT IS AWFUL ISNT IT? Not if you are the one eating it!! The dish itself is actually banned in a bunch of countries and is still protested to this day. It is the pinnacle of french cuisine and if you ever have the opportunity to eat it, please do yourself a favor and try it. Pretend like you are eating a brown marshmallow or something, you will thank me later. Anyhow, its getting late and i have to wake up early to go skiing again…expect another post soon!
