Congratulations everyone! I’m a big fan of the stuff you’re all producing. Thanks for putting topics in language people without Ph.D.’s can understand.

I don’t know if Danny or any of you have covered the topic before but the hiring of editors process is something that would be valuable to many of us.We already know you’re all super qualified for your tasks, but what about bringing on editors/writers for SB websites or others? Any opinions on pros/cons of hiring inhouse vs. not?What experiences are there with salaries, hourly pay, barter, etc.?Have any of you had experience closing the gaps between persons experienced in traditional editing vs. SEO minded editing?

Matt, I hope your "potatoe" was just you channeling your inner Dan Quale. :DI’m happy to be aboard--reading SEL every day keeps me updated on search news and trends, so it’s a good habit for me to get into.

Wow, I’m glad I read that through; I thought Danny was hiring them full-time, or maybe building up some kind of female SEO super-team (Danny’s Angels?). I look forward to Vanessa and Rebecca’s contributions.

Based on this hiring, someone has to ask the question: "Is Danny also working on a Search Engine Land swimsuit edition?"Just kidding ladies, congrats!

Good work guys; glad to see that Rebecca will keep on fighting the good fight that is an anal compulsion to fix bad grammar (if she started a club I’d join too)!;)
