With blogging, I mean people, and we've probably done this, people always make a big stink about like, how many words, how long is it? What are you sharing? Are there enough images? Da da da da da. And with the helpful content update, and I'll link to that too, but with the helpful content update that Google did,

I just need to make sure I'm helping the people I'm intending to help with the information that I'm sharing. Hello and welcome to the Simple and Smart SEO show Where we provide tips and advice to improve your website's search engine ranking. I'm Brittany Herzberg, SEO copywriter for Holistic health and Wellness Pros who want to show up as the answer to a Googled Question. And I'm Crystal Waddell,

an e-commerce seller and content creator. I help business owners communicate the value of their products and services through content so you can make more sales and grow your business. We are business besties who love learning and sharing what we've learned. So what are we waiting for? Let's jump in. Good morning, good afternoon, good evening. Goodnight. Wherever you are.

Welcome back to Simple Smart SEO Show podcast. I'm here with my good friend and co-host B. How are you doing? Hello. I'm good. I'm excited. I'm like, obviously I'm excited. I'm like, Hey. Yeah, today is a special episode because rather than record something new, we are actually gonna take this opportunity in the new year to reflect on three of our favorite episodes from our first year of the podcast.

And so, yeah, we are both very excited to share. And you know, we just wanna encourage you to go back and listen to some of these episodes if you haven't before, or if you were like, oh yeah, I forgot about that. And you know, you wanna, you know, just revisit it. We're gonna, we're gonna touch base on our favorites today.

Yes. And to be clear, it's each of our favorite three. So you're gonna end up with six episodes that you could potentially revisit or go listen to for the first time. Yes, yes. Okay. So how about you V Like what, what was your, what was your favorite episode? Your first one? My first favorite episode, I am going to share a little bit and then tell you what the episode is.

Okay. So I don't, I don't know that I've communicated this with you, but we have a lot of guests that, they're friends of mine, so we end up just having regular conversations anyway. So many people are like, how's my episode doing? Am I, am I in the top five? I didn't realize how many competitive people we have.

And you know, I'm also like a little bit competitive. And this episode is one that I consider my episode. And so I'm very proud that it's, that it's held the number one spot for a minute, but it's the live audit, the one where it was on the fly. Ah. So I'll get into like a little bit of like why I loved it,

but it was on the fly. You and I were just sitting there and I was like, well, we could record this. And you're like, okay. So we recorded it and lo and behold, people really love it. I think the only reason why I love this episode so much is because it was, it was me being vulnerable and it helped other people.

And that's something that I've leaned into my entire life. So to be able to see this like still continuing even with business, it's just like, it makes my heart so happy. That is awesome. And I just looked it up. And that is episode 17. Listen to a live SEO audit, and we'll link it as well. So if you don't have to go back and sift,

we'll make sure that we link it. Yeah. Okay. So what did you get out of that episode? That I wasn't doing? As poorly as I thought. I am similar to many other humans in that like I am my harshest critic and I wasn't doing as poorly as I thought. And it's motivated me to, I saw that Google really still thinks of me as a massage therapist,

and while I am, I need Google to recognize me more as an s e o in case study copywriter. So with this year, my plan for 2023, and it's an ambitious one, and I'm gonna be very gracious that this doesn't happen if I fall short in air quotes or whatever, but my very ambitious goal is to get one blog post out per week.

And it's not gonna be perfect. It's not gonna be pretty, it's probably not gonna be optimized to the nth degree, but that SEO optimization stuff will be there. The headline, the url, all of that stuff. And probably at least one image. So it's an ambitious goal, but I'm gonna do it because I need Google to see me as a copywriter.

Yeah, absolutely. And as an authority in copywriting. Right? So I love it. A lot of times people ask me, they'll say, well, does it matter when you're, you know, blogging? Do you need to do it once a week? Or, you know, all that type of stuff. Right. And my only comment to that is just like,

make sure that you do what is sustainable. You know, cuz I've had some people say, I'm gonna do like two or three blogs a week, and I'm like, okay. You know, I mean, that's great, but just make sure it's sustainable because yes, Google will reward you for that if you're consistent, but it might actually work against you,

you know, in the long run, if you, you know, batch create a whole bunch of blogs at once and then, right. So I like that you're, you're committing to like a consistent schedule. That's really good. Yeah. And with blogging, I mean, people, and we've probably done this, people always make a big stink about like,

how many words, how long is it? What are you sharing? Are there enough images, da da da da da. And with the helpful content update, and I'll link to that too, but with the helpful content update that Google did, I just need to make sure I'm helping the people I'm intending to help with the information that I'm sharing. And that might be a really long blog post.

If I have the time and I have the inspiration and I have the stuff to share, it might be on the shorter side. So I'm just gonna make sure that I'm being consistent with putting things out. And I might revisit the goal. I don't know. But that's, that's at least where I'm starting. Yeah. And I, I think you're in an interesting place too,

because, because you're a case study copywriter, you are gonna probably have some additional content that you might not have even really thought about in terms of your blog once you start writing it. And, you know, writing long blog posts, you know, could be hard, but when you also have a whole bunch of information that you've already captured, it makes it a lot easier,

you know? So Yeah, it does. And that's, I think I shared with you what I plan to do, and that's to share, you know, I really haven't been good about turning these episodes, these podcast episodes into blog posts, but that's gonna be some of the blog posts with our transcripts that you've so gracefully, graciously put together, and a mix of the case studies,

whether that's me going through a program, something I bought for my dog Jack, or I have a long one plan for Airbnb, but I might need to wait until after I need them. Ooh. Do I see an affiliate link in your future? I don't think so. I don't think Airbnb is gonna like me after my review. Ooh, okay.

Yeah. So stay tuned. That's a major teaser, but what, so that's my first one. What was your first one? Man? My f my first one goes back to Ashley Chanel my birthday twin. So I love what she said, you know, like, not r o not all ROI is monetary. Yeah. You know, and she was like,

you need to think about the return on effort, the r o e versus the r o I. And I was like, that caught me too. I was like, wait a minute. What? Yeah. So I thought, well, first, I mean, it just stood out. I, I still think about it to this day, know what I mean?

Like, just randomly as I'm working on different things, I think about that concept of return on effort, you know? And, and I think I, because I started with Pinterest, you know, I just naturally fell into that. I need, I need content that works for me for a long time. You know, it was very easy for me to be turned off by Instagram because last year they kicked me outta my account,

you know? Right. Because they said I was impersonating myself. And Yeah. That was weird. Yeah. I'm like, I don't know why I would wanna impersonate me, you know, when I could just be me, but whatever. So, but that happened right before a thing. I was actually gonna launch, I was actually gonna do a workshop,

and I was like, and my audience was primarily on Instagram. It was like a, a cross between Instagram and Clubhouse. And it really frustrated me and it turned my heart, if you will, against Instagram. You know, I was like, I will never fully trust you again. You know? Sure. I mean, why would you? Yeah.

And then it also happened with Pinterest, you know, because Pinterest went through so many changes and it's like, I'm telling people, oh yeah, you should use Pinterest and da da da da. And then Pinterest would change. And I was, I was agile with the changes, but it was frustrating that I would tell somebody something that was working one week and three weeks later,

it may not be a best practice anymore. And so, you know, Pinterest also broke a little bit of my heart. You know, I could no longer trust Pinterest and this how doing seo. Yeah. Well then I had that Whitney Houston moment where it was like, I decided long ago never to live in any platform shadow. If I fail,

if I succeed, at least I'll know that I believe, you know. So I had to depend on me be, I had to depend on me. Oh, Whitney, I'm just laughing. And I had to depend on seo, you know, and that's how I fell into seo. So going back to Ashley's episode, that whole idea of return on effort was like,

yeah, you know, this is something I can guarantee, you know, my effort and my website and my email list and my company investing in myself, that's an R ROI and an R o e that I can really, you know, be confident Yeah. Within. Yeah. So, yeah, I mean, that's huge. And even so this year,

my tie-in with that is that I really didn't invest in anything. There were more things where I invested in me, or I specifically, like Dalia Orth, I hired her to help me with the backend of Honey Book because I was like, I need, I need these systems and workflows together. Like, I need them. I need to just be over here and look more professional and have things that are working without me,

and I'm not ready yet to have a team. So I've been very strategic with, instead of buying into programs, I've been buying into people. So, you know, I've had Elaney as my business coach, I hired Dalia for that stuff with HoneyBook. I've had more of like those strategic investments versus I felt like, to your point, I felt like I was trusting other people to be the experts and other people to be my guides when I'd already done enough research.

Like, and I know that that's a weak point for me where I over research. So yay for you for trusting yourself because you know a lot of stuff. Yeah. And it's, it's so crazy. My dad is always telling me this, you know, he's like, you are the expert, you know? Yeah. But I'm like, I have to gather,

I have to gather, I have to make sure that I touch base with this expert to make sure that I'm giving the right information. And it's like, you know, we synthesize so much as business owners and, you know, it's like, I, I wish I could remember the lady who said this, but she's like, you know, one day you just gotta wake up and realize you are the expert.

Yeah. It's like there's no one else to ask. You know, you have to look within and just reflect on what you're doing, how it's going, and then, you know, move forward with that information. But yeah, it's just, it's a nice feeling though, to know that, you know, to this point, we can confidently come before other people and say,

Hey, this is how the internet works, or This is what's working right now, or this is how you can improve your seo. And one thing I just wanted to add is that I'm going to be presenting to photographers this year. Yes, you are. Yeah. And I'm really excited about this event that I'll be speaking at. And, you know,

so it's, it's really nice that I, I can confidently go in there and say, I know how I can help you. Yeah. Yeah. I know how I can help you make your website load faster. I know how you can, you know, get more eyeballs on your website and, and for your business. So yes, this whole idea of return on effort is really starting to manifest,

you know? And I love that. Yeah. That's amazing. And just like, another thought that came to me while you were sharing that is that sometimes the way you can see your return on effort is the feedback that you get. And I know you and I constantly, constantly, like almost daily get emails, text messages, boxer messages, Instagram,

dms, whatever, where people are like, oh my gosh, I learned this from the show. I heard you say this. Or they'll piece it together months down the road. Yeah. And they're like, I remember you said the thing. And like, now I get the thing. And I'm like, yeah. Yeah. For, so that's been,

that's been huge. Also, even just like you and I love watching our stats, so we're always like in the back end of Buzz Sprout going like, what's happening with the podcast? And like, as of today, we're over 8,000 downloads. Woo-hoo. Like, that will never not blow my mind. Yeah, for sure. So yeah, look at us being experts.

Nice. Okay. So that was our first one. So, you know, go back and listen to the Ashley Chanel episode and there's actually two with her. Yeah. Like, it's SEO dying. Yeah. SS SEO Dying was one of 'em. And I just love that title. And she was talking about how to use ads and that type of thing.

And then yours was, what was yours one more time? The live audit. The live audit, yeah. So that was, which I think was episode 17. Yeah. They, they were amazing. Okay. So my second one comes on the heels of you talking about how much you don't love Instagram. Ah, it was the Instagram episode, and I'm not sure what number it is,

but we'll find that for you and we'll link it. But the cool thing with that one has been that I get so many people in my dms where they're asking about certain things related to SEO and or Instagram, and I'll just send them that episode. And it is really cool for me to, like, it's such a good feeling to be able to go,

oh, I talked about this. Here, go listen to this. Instead of, what I would normally do is spend 15 to 20 minutes in the dms with these people, because I love that. And I, I, I jokingly say that I spend too much time on Instagram, but I like for sure spend too much time on Instagram because I love,

and, and specifically in my dms, because I love the connections, I love the conversations. Yeah. It was episode four way back when, but we went through, I wanna say it was like seven different elements of SEO within Instagram, whether it's your profile or the content you're putting out. So highly recommend going back and listening to that. And I,

I don't know that it's really changed much of what I do, but it has definitely changed. Like, just that episode has changed, you know, me having that answer that I can send people Yeah. Which I love. It's just such a succinct, like, here you go. And then they end up listening to different episodes, which is neat.

Yeah. Well, okay, so I wanna say I still love Instagram. I just don't trust, trust Instagram. Right. You know, and trust is such an important thing. That's like a core value for me, you know, like, if I can't trust you, you know, I'll, I'll take what I can learn, you know, I'll take what I can get.

Yeah. But I'm gonna leave a lot too, because I don't trust you. So yeah. So that's, that's my relationship with Instagram. But what I loved about that episode is that you shared so much and then not long after that, people started talking about Instagram seo, and I was like, oh no. B was on the, you know,

forefront. Yes. The forefront of that. And you were, I was on the front lines. You were a thought leader, you still thought leader, leader, but I'm like, people actual, like brave people are on the front lines of things. I shouldn't say the internet front lines. Yeah. So, yeah, but you, you really kind of blazed a trail though,

you know, in terms of that and, and really opened my eyes to thinking, wow, SEO shows up on every platform. And that's a conversation that we continue to have today. So I know, and that's something that, thank you for saying that. I appreciate that you recognize that that makes you feel very good. Aw. But it's, it SEO is everywhere.

It's not just your blogs, it's not just your website. And I love bringing attention to that. So that's really cool that we started there and now we have other experts that we're bringing on and highlighting them and like, you know, we've had Selena for LinkedIn and we've had other people, we have other people in the works for 2023, and I'm going to explode with excitement.

So, you know, just stay tuned people. Yeah. Can I just drop something that I know we're gonna be having an episode on Etsy seo? Yes, yes, yes, we are. For all those makers out there. And I'll not be leading it, so, you know, you're in good hands. Yeah. And we are bringing along another expert for that one.

But I'm super excited cuz Etsy, Etsy's another one that I love, but do not trust. So, you know, it'll be fun to talk about how SEO plays a role there as well, so, oh, for sure. All right. Who's up next for you? Oh man. Who is up next for me? You know, as you're talking about this and you're dropping names and different episodes,

I'm like, oh yeah, we gotta go back and find them. Yeah, I'm, well, I'm just like, oh my gosh, I love that episode too. You know, how did I forget about this? Yeah, so, you know, this, this may be a part one, our other favorite episodes, every single one of them.

But I think it was Sunny, you know, meeting Sunny. Yeah. That was just one of our most recent episodes. And she was just so encouraging, you know? Yeah. And she really spoke to my heart because she was someone who helps marketing or helps people with their marketing, small businesses with their marketing, and also helps women kind of reimagine themselves in the workplace,

or, you know, reengage in the workplace. And just, she really spoke to my heart because of the fact that, you know, I stopped working as a teacher when Asher was a baby, you know? And there's that element of like, who am I and what do I contribute, you know, to society? And it only took a few really bad situations for me to realize,

you know what, for me the most important thing was being Asher's mom. Even though I didn't wanna just be seen as Asher's mom, I couldn't fight it. That was what really brought me the most joy, you know? It's like, I wanna be there for him. You know, I wanna be Asher's mom and, and you know, be able to pick him up from school every day and that type of stuff.

Nobody's watching this. So it was just really neat to hear someone so smart and encouraging. Yeah. Talking about the things that we talk about also about content and just about life, you know, because Yeah. Online business is so weird, you know, I, first of all, like remembering to take a shower, I definitely did. If you can see my drowned rat look for the day.

Yeah. Well, I never heard anybody talk about that. When you work from home, it's like every day turns into Saturday in a way, and it's like this black hole of what is even happening here, you know what I mean? Like, you're working on stuff and it's not like you're getting up and going to the office every day. You know?

I wasn't getting up and going to school every day, so I didn't have that particular routine, you know? Yeah. Yeah. So I just think it's so funny that there's all of these sides of working for yourself or creating a business and working online primarily that people just don't talk about. And so, yeah, I thought it was fun, you know,

to be able to share with different people, and especially Sunny about what that looks like. So, yeah. No, I think my favorite part of the episode, and I'm not really sure of the interview, I'm not sure how much of it needed into the episode, was like, my, my dog was doing something, your dog was doing something,

her dog was doing something. And it's like, she, she was apologizing. I'm like, we get it. Like, that's part, that is a huge reason in my heart and head of like, why we do the podcast the way we do it. It's conversational, it's casual. Like, I don't care if people show up with makeup on,

I don't care. Like, I'm not even doing it. We're you listening to this? All you care about is what we tell you. And the best feedback that I keep and the best Right. With your tooth. And the best thing, the feedback that we keep getting, that I'm seeing is that people really feel like a fly on the wall.

They feel like they're sitting down and having a conversation with us. And I think that is so cool, because I love those episodes. Yeah. When I'm listening, whether it's our show or somebody else's, like, I love consuming that, so I just wanted to highlight that. And, you know, we're real people with real dogs that do real things,

so Yeah. Yeah. And real questions about did I take a shower today? And I'm sorry, I may may be alone out there, but I think someone is listening to this going, thank you. Yeah. No, someone's gonna be, yeah. I, I felt like that as well. I didn't. Right. And like, that's one thing that's been cool with meeting you and working with you and just getting closer to you,

is that I have certain struggles. You have other certain struggles for me, going from working in a massage office five days a week to going full-time at whatever house I'm living at at the time in whatever state that I'm in, which feels really unsettling. It really does. I, I'll come back to that in a minute. It's, it hasn't been so hard because my daily routine has,

I'm, I'm still figuring out what that looks like, but I still wake up in the morning at the same time. I still have breakfast, I still take a shower, I still get ready. Like I, I do those things. So for me, that's not the struggle, but a struggle for me is like feeling like an imposter 80% of my week and I shouldn't,

and I'm like still kind of working through that. But, okay. So to go back to the whole, like living in different houses, different Airbnbs and different cities and states, if you've ever heard of human design, they talk, it's kind of like astrology meets some other stuff, but your environment is a big part of what they share. And with my type in air quotes,

what I, what that type does is they find a spot in whatever place they are, and that's their spot. And for sure a hundred thousand percent, that's me. I'll go to a house and I'll just kinda like gravitate toward like whatever corner feels like my home. And then I don't leave, like all my stuff just stays in that corner. So yeah.

Finding corner, I have a picture of you like playing hide and go seek and counting or something. That's the type of corner that I'm envisioning right now. Like essentially, yes. Yeah. Oh my gosh, that's so funny. So yeah, we love Sunny. All right. So what's your number three? I really lo Okay. So I loved all of our guests.

I don't think there's a single person that I didn't love. And so many of them came into this experience as friends of mine. And we have a joke about just like, or in my head at least, you know how like holidays we have, you know, we are on the heels of a few big holidays and you go to extend the table and you just add those like leafs to the table.

Yeah. I just feel like I want a giant table with all of my friends. And since I don't have that, I have a massive like podcast list that you can scroll through and it's like, here's some of my friends. So I loved everyone that we had, but I think my personal favorite episode was Brenna's, because I knew there was something there with pre-launch and seo,

but the connections and the, like, the goods really showed up in that interview. And I don't know if, like you listening, have ever had this moment where you're doing something or you're in a meeting, or maybe you've been in a podcast interview and it just hits you and you're like, oh, this, this is like, and you can kind of feel it happening.

But that definitely happened with me with Brenna's episode. Yes. And I wanna give a shout out to Brenna because I actually have implemented her idea of pre-launch Yeah. Into my entire 2023 plan. Oh, I love that. Yeah. And so, again, going back to Pinterest, Pinterest is very similar to the pre-launch idea because you have to prepare for Pinterest like way in advance.

Yeah. You know, like three months, six months in advance or whatever. So essentially what I did was I created a calendar that was my Pinterest slash prelaunch, you know, column, and then, you know, my monthly focus. And so that idea prelaunch just really framed everything for me for the year. And it was so quick to be able to say,

okay, this is what I wanna launch, you know, in March, or you know, this is what I'm doing in March. And so I need to be working on a pre-launch, you know, now for those things that are happening in March. And so I really, I love that so much and I've implemented it, you know, I mean,

it's gonna be a core part of both businesses for 2023. And so yeah, that was an amazing episode. Yeah. And I think it, I mean, there's so many parts of it that I love, but really, like, it kept coming back to being intentional. And that's one of my biggest, biggest values is just, you know, being intentional.

And actually, that's my, I don't know if you do this, but I always kind of ch for the last five years or so, I've chosen a word for the year. And that's the one that keeps showing up for me is just intentional, being intentional. So I love that you have incorporated the pre-launch aspect into 2023. And something that I wanna just like remind all of us of is that we can be pre-launching anything.

We can be launching anything, your freebie, your podcast, your paid products or paid packages. Like, it doesn't matter. It's Brenna said it well, and I'll butcher it, I'm sure, but just like it's pre-launch is just putting emphasis and bringing awareness to different things. So I feel like it really just, you know, fits well with seo.

It fits well with your SWAT analysis. Cs, what's the plural that Oh my gosh. Yeah. Your swat analysis that you do for yourself there, we'll just make it singular. So I'm really excited to see that play out for you. And I just, it was such a joy talking with her and you know, if you haven't listened to it,

but you feel like you don't launch anything, I highly recommend going back and listening to it because it applies, period. Yeah. Well, and the thing that really stuck, stuck out to me, and I still remember as well, is she talked about Hollywood movies, you know? Yes. And how when they release a movie, they start releasing the trailers like months and months and months ahead of when the actual movie.

So it's like, by the time the movie gets there, you almost feel like you've already seen it, but you know, you're, you're, you're expecting it, you know? Yeah. Like, you're just waiting to give somebody your money so you can go see it. Whereas, you know, if you hadn't been talking about it, people wouldn't know to even go,

you know, so it's just Right. It's such a different, you know, perspective. Like it is No, no movie would ever just say, oh, we're in movie theaters today. Right? No. And if you're, what was it, top Gun, then you're like, oh, we're in production. Oh, wait, we're gonna come out this year.

Oh wait, we're gonna move it this year. I just kept pushing it out. Yeah. And I had watched that last night and Thoughts, oh, that was like the 15th time. I love that movie Mapper. The first, wait, the first one or the second one? Did you watch the one? The second one. Oh, okay.

Yeah, I haven't seen it yet. I know. Oh my gosh. I know. It's, it's on my list. My parents actually lived in San Diego and they lived near Miramar, I'm probably screwing up the name, but they lived near their, during the time that they were filming the first one. Wow. Yeah. That, that movie That's cool.

Has a special place in all of our hearts. I gotta go watch that. But yeah, like, I hadn't put two and two together to even think about the movie trailers and how they released those so early, and yet I pay attention to that. Or even, even like concerts and events. Yeah. And just like getting those tickets sales, like,

they have to tell you so much in advance. And so the artist or whoever has to let you know, Hey, I've got some things coming. Hey, pay attention. Hey, whatever. Yeah. So, yeah, just very eyeopening. I know we have to go in a minute. We're not even to our third one, or I'm not to my third one,

but I just have to say really quick, I also implemented the pre-launch into my e-commerce site. Oh. And so every month I'm doing like a special sale of like, Hey, early bird special, you know? Oh, cool. Because like I was thinking, you know, just with the, the concerts and different things, it's like how good that must that feel as an artist to know that your concert is already sold out Yeah.

Before you even perform. Oh, that's cool. Yeah. All the stress is gone, you know, so it's like, oh, if I'm, well, then it's the stress of actually showing up and doing a good job. Yeah. That's where my stress would show up. But that's what they do, that's their thing, you know? Yeah.

So it's like, but March, maybe we're doing some Shamrock cutouts, right? So I can start saying, Hey, resale in January for the Shamrock cutouts. And people can see that every month up until the actual, you know, month of March and March is, you know, regular price. But I think people start to realize, oh, if I want these things in advance,

I can get 'em here for cheaper at this time. And, you know, I'm excited about that. Yeah. That's really exciting. Okay. I do wanna hear your third. So who, who, who or what is your third? I gotta hurry up here. Okay. My third, oh, it's a dictionary episode. I love that one.

I can't wait until we record part two. I mean, that dictionary episode is one of our top downloads as well. And it's just, you know, understanding the jargon, you know, of the industry. And I think a lot of times the jargon gets in our way of being able to implement different things. So the dictionary episode absolutely love it.

I love that one. It's another one that I will share with people when they email or DM me, actually. Like, that might be the one that I share more often because I've had so many people come to me and just say like, I didn't know what this was, and then I listened to the thing, and so now I know what it is.

Or Yeah. They're like, what do I need to know about this? I'm like, oh, here, this, yeah. Well, and you're inspiring me right now because so many times when people ask me questions, I, I forget that we've covered it. You know what I mean? And so you're so right to say, oh my gosh,

we now have these, this library of resources Yeah. That we can share with you to say, Hey, check this out. This might help you get unstuck right here. Or whatever. And so, yeah. I that's, that's a really good point as well, you know, because people, and even if it's not like in episode just saying,

Hey, go back and check out the podcast and scroll and like, because we, you have been so strategic with the titles of the episodes, it's easy to scroll and figure out like which ones they, they need to listen to. Yeah, absolutely. So, I mean, all of it, it's just been so much fun. I remember you said we should start a podcast and like you said,

with the, the being a fly on the wall, that's what I've loved the most is just that, you know what, we could record our conversations and it's like we're having a conversation with, you know, thousands of people at the same time. It's so fun. You know, it's just so fun to think that we're all, you know, in this together,

you know? Yeah. So I love that. And I, and on that note, yes, yes. We have something. What do we have? Okay. I feel like what? Not Bob Barker. What's the guy that doesn't like, maybe I am Bob Barker and that's, you are Bob Barker. You're talking about the Price is Right. Yeah.
