Enjoyed this post by Suzie a lot. I only blog because I enjoy it and always appreciate good advice, but I am not a fan of the “How to get a million viewes in 10 seconds” posts. This post is not one of those, I recommend going over to Suzies blog to read this and other great posts. Leave your comments and likes at original post.
There are two types of content that I usually post on my blog:
Daily Experiences – things I see and do, journal-type notes, general thoughts etc. These posts are generally just for fun – I write them for enjoyment and they keep within the original purpose that the blog was intended for: therapy. I don’t pay much attention to SEO, keywords or images as I know that these sorts of posts will be seen over a period of about a month and then will be considered to be out of date. Essentially, non-evergreen content that has an expiration date.
Evergreen Content – posts that will be generally relevant over long periods of time and aren’t necessarily specific to my own life. Within these I am much more focused on keywords and SEO techniques, I spend a much longer period of time crafting beautiful and pinnable images and I make sure…

This weekend was quite a busy and started with payday drinks at work on Friday. One of our colleges had a concert with his band, and a few of us went there to listen to them play and keep the party going. It was a really good evening out, but it did not make Saturday morning the best one. I lack the ability to recover that I used to have.
But after a very slow morning it was time to visit the Irish pub for the rugby game. It was very full and the mood was on top. The combination of St. Patrick’s Day and the fact that Ireland won the Grand Slam at the rugby, made this a very enjoyable afternoon. There was a lot of people out in a lot of weird green clothes and read beards.
After this we went out to a lovely meal at the restaurant called Harry Pepper where we also ate last year for Paddy’s day. This year they have moved their venue, but the food was at least as nice as last year. We went for a three course meal and I had a lovely Gordita, magical ribs and a finish of Churros. I can really recommend this place for eating and drinking. I decided not to go with any of their nice tequila or cocktails.
As the night before was a bit later that planned and because we had a lot of food we just went home quite early. Today I made a nice big breakfast and had a lovely lazy morning, before going for a lovely walk in the crisp winter sunshine. And then it was time for a family dinner at my brother’s new place to celebrate the fact that he has a new apartment and that he had his birthday this week.
I have been quite busy at work lately and I had to go in on Saturday for a few hours. On Friday I was so tired that I had to turn down an invitation to join some friends eating at a nice burger place. And after work Saturday I really did not want to get up to too much. But after a few hours spent doing as little as possible, I decided that I needed some fresh air and decided to go for an evening walk in the town center.
The weather was quite cold, but nice and crisp and perfect for walking, so going out for the walk was a good choice of evening activities. Today it is snowing and my walk earlier was cut a bit short and I went to eat some nice pancakes instead. As it is important to spend some time enjoying yourself over the weekend. I have been invited to go to my mothers house for dinner and was thinking of walking up to her house, but looking out the window I might leave that for another time.
Apart from working more than usual I have not been up to too much the last week and I hope that next week will bring a little more spare time, and that I will be inspired to do something other than work and go for walks.
Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend and that you will have a great week ahead.
