Where’s Raven? July 2011 edition

July is a bit “slow” for us…well, slow in the terms of us being out and about. We’re all hard at work internally on many different projects. We do have a few things to share with you this month, including a conference, a contest and some newly scheduled webinars.

Best business shorts contest

Announcing the Best Business Shorts contest!

Who, exactly, wears the Best Business Shorts? (Yes, that is me!) Find out in Raven’s Best Business Shorts online photo contest. Basically, if you can wear shorts to work, you’re eligible to enter. The grand prize is worth more than $1,200, including goodies like a one-year membership to Search Engine Land Premium and a $200 gift card to buy more shorts. For every entry and every voter, Raven will donate $1 to Career Gear. Details are at the contest page.

Google+ Hangout

Google+We’re hosting a Raven Google+ Hangout this Friday, July 8. Raven’s Taylor Pratt and Courtney Seiter will open up the doors to our unauthorized Raven Google Plus account at 4 p.m. EDT to anyone who wants to chat about Google+ and what it means for all of us. You can find out more on our Google+ page.

IRL hangout

This one I’m very excited about…Courtney Seiter and I are day-tripping it down to Atlanta from Nashville for Raven’s first customer meetup on July 20. Most spots for the beer-and-conversation event are filled, but if you’re in the area, sign up for the waitlist in case anyone drops out. If you’re not in the Atlanta area, don’t worry, we’ll be hosting more of these events in the near future.


I will be attending MozCon in Seattle at the end of the month. If you’re going, too, drop me a line, I’d love to meet up with you while you’re there. I’ll be sure to bring some of our always popular Raven T-shirts along with me. Want to see more details about conferences Raven is attending? Our Customer Care center has an entire section dedicated to conferences.
