My name is Nate Moller. I'm a Utah online marketing consultant that writes quite a bit about starting an online business. I've been involved in sales, marketing, and advertising for over 10 years and love the power of the internet to reach audiences everywhere.
A few months ago, Clint asked if I'd be interested in guest posting at MormonLawyers.com. He said he'd been reading some of my articles and thought his audience would like to know more about what I do for businesses online.
Thanks, Clint, for this opportunity. (Clint and I served missions together in the blessed land of Santiago, Chile in the late 90's.)
A few quick highlights about my career:
I've consulted with thousands of start-up, small, and medium sized businesses in search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing, and online reputation management
My "social media claim to fame" is that out of 3,125, 625 followers of Shaquille O'Neal on Twitter, I'm one of the 613 he's following and has made contact with directly :) (read the whole story here)
I love internet marketing, although in High School and College, internet "techy stuff" was NOT what I envisioned as my long-term career path
I manage a team of 8 Internet consultants who help clients build and market new online businesses

I recently came across a letter to the editor in the Salt Lake Tribune contrasting the Mormons who settled in the Great Salt Lake Valley in the summer of 1847 to the Mexicans illegally living in this country at this time. In July of 1847, when Brigham Young and his band of Mormon pioneers reached what is now Utah they were actually in Mexico. I've read statements by other people that Mormons should not support the enforcement of United States' immigrations laws because they themselves were the first illegal aliens to live in "Utah".
Does anyone know if that is a true statement? Was Brigham Young and the rest of the Mormon settlers illegally living in Mexico? Is anyone out there an expert in what Mexico's immigration laws were in 1847?
As efforts were under way to formally appeal U.S. District Court Judge Vaughn Walker's ruling that Propositional 8 was unconstitutional as violating due process and equal protection (USA Today), Attorney David Boies alleged during a keynote speech at an annual meeting of the American Bar Association that personal threats were launched against the judge involved in the ruling. Mr. Boies, who characterized efforts such as Proposition 8 as "state-sanctioned discrimination against our gay and lesbian citizens," called on all states to eliminate the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. The ABA Journal has more, including reports of a resolution being taken up by a committee on the issue. --SJR
Below is an official press release from the LDS Church in response to Judge Walker's holding.
The Church issued the following statement today in response to the ruling by Judge Vaughn R. Walker of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in Perry et al v. Schwarzenegger et al:
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints regrets today’s decision. California voters have twice been given the opportunity to vote on the definition of marriage in their state and both times have determined that marriage should be recognized as only between a man and a woman. We agree. Marriage between a man and a woman is the bedrock of society.
“We recognize that this decision represents only the opening of a vigorous debate in the courts over the rights of the people to define and protect this most fundamental institution—marriage.
“There is no doubt that today’s ruling will add to the marriage debate in this country, and we urge people on all sides of this issue to act in a spirit of mutual respect and civility toward those with a different opinion.”
