A day in the life of an SEO

If ever you want to know the rundown of a typical day in the life of a search engine optimizer, here's your chance. The guys at the Search Engine Watch forums have started a thread sharing their daily schedules. For what it's worth, here's mine:

7.00-7.30am - my son wakes me and I get us both breakfast
8.30am - drop my son to day care
9.00am - arrive at my desk with a very large double shot skinny latte made by my husband (who should be a barista trainer!)
9.00am-10.00am - Read and respond to emails, return phone calls etc
10.00am-11.00am - Read blogs, newsletters and newsfeeds etc and troll for new information in the world of search
