About

The namesake for this site is currently a freelance writer / English educator going back to school to get his teaching certificate because sometimes bills need to get paid.  And you can’t always travel the world.

Aside from the weekly web series Distilled Spirits, there will be formulated entries on passably serious topics [cold coffee], and casual features on topics ranging from San Francisco, spicy food, baseball, to anything that isn’t an attempt to justify my liberal arts degrees  [warm beer].

Affiliations, Past and Present:

Japanese Exchange Teaching Program (JET) — Based in Gunma Prefecture for two years

Graduate of Virginia Tech and one liberal high school in San Francisco

The Planeteers — (unofficial member since childhood)

  1. Hello, my name is Cory and I run a web design agency. I came across your site and I would like to know if you are looking to convert more sales from the web? I saw a few things on your site that my company and I could do for your sites that have made a big impact on our clients website sales.

    I thought I would reach out to you to see if you would be interested in hearing my ideas and seeing what we could do for you and your site?

    If you are interested I would be happy to speak with you and show you a few things you can do now that will help your site. I can also show you some examples of what we have done for our clients that have helped them achieve their goals with their websites.

    Let me know the best time and phone number to reach you to discuss this further.

    I look forward to speaking with you.

    I always want to make sure you are receiving value from my e-mails. Should you be not interested in obtaining my emails then just tell me that you would want to be eliminated from my database.

  2. Hi there my name is Kris and I am a digital marketer. I help my clients sites bring in more traffic by helping their site become the most authoritative to the search engines. Everyone tries to tell you that they will get you on the first page of google next week. Most of the time they are just telling you what you want to hear, but some can actually do it. The only problem is that the tactics they would perform on your site will get on the top of Google quickly but will also eventually get you a penalty from Google as well. Once you have a penalty from Google it is extremely difficult to get on top the search engines ever again.

    I tell you this to be upfront and straight with you. We are looking for long term realsonship with clients and do not wish to tell you what you want to hear. We focus on delivering data driven results to our clients so they really know what is going on and how well they are performing.

    Currently I am offering a free consultation where I will take a look at your site and also at your competitors with you and see what needs to happen to get you to where you want to go. I just want to know if you would be interested in this free consultation.

    The consultation is completely free and there is not any pressure or strings attached or tricksto make you use my services. My thinking is pretty straight forward, I provide a lot of value with these consultations and I know that some will not use my services in the end, which is ok. Others will need my help and wish to use my services. Either way I am always happy to help other business owners understand the changing world of online marketing and how they can beat their competitors.

    Let me know the best number to reach you at and I will be in touch and take a look at your site and your competitors and then provide you with my findings.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Kris Rodgerson

    If you are actually not interested in ranking better in the search engines and outpacing your competition and do not wish to receive any more emails just let me know by replying with the word remove in the subject line.

  3. Hi there,

    Im Frank, Im a website designer and e-commerce consultant and if Im some what intrusive by getting on your contact forms to reach you to do business, at this point, I would like to sincerely apologize for this informal approach. It sure beats having to play cat and mouse with the gatekeeper. A lot of good opportunities are lost this way.

    Anyway, kidding aside, I just would like to air my two cents about your website as to how its performing. As it is, its marvelous. But you for a fact know that the wicked never rest and that the new will always break ground andbe revealed to attract more sales from the human traffic that youget. The designs I do not only captivate but also maximizes the use of the website by funneling in more sales activity for a company and inculcates a lasting sense of recall, for the advertising aspect.

    I would very much like to interface with you pretty soon as Im giving out FREE ANALYSES /CONSULTATION as to how all this comes about. Please, dont hesitate in responding to me. I only would like to do business, I mean nothing ill. I can assure you, something really good and beneficial for your business will come out of this, if only you would give it a try.

    Looking forward to meeting you. Thank you very much! Have a good one!

    Frank Castello
