Ok, Pierre and Joe both tagged me. Now I got to share 5 things about myself, please don’t laugh! 🙂

So, let’s see:

1. I got into SEO by chance. On the last year of my Bachelor degree in France (a year ago, in 2005), I had to do a final four-month internship. I always wanted to go to California, so I decided to try to do this internship over-there while my classmates would freeze their ass in France. So how did I manage to get my ass 6000 miles from my home? Well, I kinda spam over 1000 companies in California with emails that I’ve found on craiglist. I used an emailing software and within a few hours, I had sent 1000 emails to companies from San Diego, L.A. and San Francisco. The next day I had a few companies that were ok to hire me, I chose the one that was the closest to the beach. It was a SEO company located in Carlsbad, CA. So I basically learned SEO from scratch in Carlsbad, in the San Diego area, and from that day, I fell in love with both California and SEO 🙂

2. I love Rap. Mostly old school stuff such as Public Enemy, KRS One, A Tribe Called Quest, Slick Rick, Bone Thugs N Harmony or N.W.A (West Coast!)… My favorite rapper is 2pac, then comes Eazy-E.

3. I didn’t know how to swim until the age of 16, I’ve always been scared of the water, even if my sun sign is Pisces.

4. I was a born in France but my parents are Algerian (Kabyles) immigrants.

5. I’m a heavy weekend drinker, I really started to drink when I was in Dublin, and now even in Paris, I’m still drinking Guinness even if my friends keep making fun of me.

Ok, now I need to tag 5 people. So, let’s see. Wow!, everyone has already been tagged. Alright, so let’s pick 2 french guys: Arnaud, and Sébastien Billard. Let’s see what my friend Earl Grey has to say. I don’t know her personally, but let’s choose Natasha Robinson to add a girl to the list. And Mashhoor.

    Wow! What an ironic way to get involved in SEO! “How to spam your way to the top and get away with it!”

    I still can’t swim, personally (or, rather, I can barely swim, but there’s no way I’d survive a shipwreck…)

    You’re drinking Guiness Uh?
    I usually drink Guinness
    (Do not forget the double ‘n’!)

    Hi Kilroy, I’ve corrected the typo, thanks!

    So Joe, is Titanic your scariest movie?
