Father’s Day for the Strider Dad

In News by Janis FreemanLeave a Comment

It was almost a month ago I sat down with our two children, Wesley and Jaedyn.  We needed to decide what to do for Ryan for Father’s Day.  We talked about all the things Daddy “loves.”  Among the list were hockey, hockey fights (thanks Wes) and ‘puters (thanks Jae).  With that knowledge in hand I went to my computer to do some research.  Hockey season is finished by now… I’m not up for any hockey fights… so that left us with ‘puters 🙂

What Went Wrong With My SEO?

Sometimes You Just Need A Push

Being a bit of a perfectionist, I was hesitant to launch striderseo.com until we had things “just right.” Our logo had to be finalized, content drafted and refined, website layout and structure designed … there was much to do! Two things happened to change all of that.

Strider Inc. Is Born

It doesn’t seem like 14 years since I was first introduced to this thing called “the internet.” It really doesn’t. I was a high school kid working part-time for a computer shop that ran a dial-up bulletin board service.
