Mother's Day

It is getting close to that time of year when we need to find a Mother's Day gifts. At least for those of us in the US. Some countries it has already past and some don't have it. Have you ever wondered when it was started and why? I mean yeah I love my Mother and she deserves a gift, but it should be when I want to give it right?

Well for most countries it began a little different and we the settlers came to America they decided to stop Mothering Sunday. The US didn't start it again until 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson decided to make it a Holiday every 2nd Sunday in May. Now it is the 2nd most flower giving holiday.

Carnations were started by Anna Jarvis in 1908. She wanted to remember her Mother and sent 500 carnations to a church in Grafton VA. Where her Mother taught Sunday school for 20 years. The carnations were to be worn by the sons and daughters - one each and 2 for each Mother in attendance. Anna Jarvis also campaigned to have a day to celebrate and honor Mothers.

There were a few more who campaigned to get Mother's day to happen again. They were hoping for a non profit day. Although it didn't turn out that way at least their efforts didn't go in vain. Anna Jarvis could see into the future at what her gesture of the carnations did. Wearing carnations and giving them in church is still done today.

So yes, it is that time to get your Mother a gift. It doesn't have to be expensive or even flowers. A nice phone call, card, or simply a few chores around the house would make her feel loved and wanted. Mom's do things all the time and for 1 day out of the year let them put their feet up and be waited on. I wish I could do that for my Mother even if it wasn't for Mother's Day. I don't need a day for it to be when it is suppose to be done. I can give her a gift on that day or any day I choose.

Ethical SEO Expert

The most irritating thing is to read some ethical SEO Experts preach about ethics when the are not ethical themselves. Yes, it makes you wonder how they can spew out this crud laden BS everywhere. Much more they think they are attacked on a personal level. I say hey bud, you wanna preach ethics be totally ethical yourself!

Don't have sites that are very similar scraper style with some links made for your vacation spots. Yep your so called ethics have been found for those of you ethical SEO activists. Or how about those other blogs that mimic the sites are SEO'ed by the ethical SEO expert huh? Yep, all that preaching about do not engage in link building but are found doing the most unethical thing. It will be exposed every unethical practice

The worst unethical thing an SEO can do is place their link on the clients website. This is stealing from the pocket that pays you!
