Lazy Week (and Weekend)

This week I haven’t really been up to much and it has been very nice! I’ve been doing the things I had to do, like going to work minding a few peoples plants and bringing in their mail while they were on holiday, but apart from that my days have consisted of going for walks in between the rain showers, and just being at home watching tv and hanging around the internett.

After reading several posts on how to use pintrest in your blogging I decided to start taking some interest in it. I already had an account after being convinced by the lovely Teagan Genevienne and seeing the way she used it with her blogging. I soon discovered  I didn’t understand much of it and I nearly forgot about it. This week I decided to give it a new go and I have slowly but surely understood more and more of it. I found out that the way to go for me is to approach this little by little at snail speed. So far Pintrest have sent one person to my blog, i’m not a 100% sure but I think that was me accidentally clicking on my phone. As you understand I am nowhere near being an expert and I probably never will be and that is absolutely fine by me. If you are curious about pintrest visit Suzie Speaks, Elena or Janice, they know a lot more that me about it!

This weekend I’m going to continue having no plans. I had a lovely quiet friday evening with watching TV, eating nice food, crisps and enjoying some wine with my man. I am making sure that my batteries are properly loaded for next week that starts with me going for job interviews on Monday and Tuesday.

Hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend doing whatever makes you happy!

P.S. If you find yourself wondering what to do with the weekend there is a PARTY going on at Janice’s new blog! Check it out.

      I’ve read your posts on Pintrest and found them very informative. I feel my readers would benefit from reading your posts if they want to learn more about Pintrest. And a blog party is always fun! Thank you for hosting!

      • Janice Wald says:

        Thank you for the kind words about my articles, and once again for exposing my site to your readers. Considering I’m blogging at a new site, both are really helpful. Thanks for being so thoughtful.

        Pleasure is all mine. You’ve helped us all with your good advice so if I can help you by sharing youe good posts with my readers that is a win win for all!

        Hi Masgauten,
        I really can’t thank you enough. Links into my new site are so important to get my SEO ranking back up in addition to all the new readers you are exposing my site too. However, I need to ask one favor. Where you recommend my Pinterest articles (with Suzi and Elena), the link still directs readers to mycurrentnewsblog.com, and the site is turned off. Traffic is not redirected. Can you please change the link to mostlyblogging.com? I really thank you so much for all this help and exposure..
        Janice

        No problem I’ll fixed it as soon as I’m back with my computer! Sorry for using an old link.

      • masgautsen says:

        The link should be correct now 🙂

  2. Hi Masgautsen, we have a friend in common Janice Wald. I found you through blog party. Looking forward to get to know you through your posts. Hilda

    I am interested in using Pinterest to generate more traffic to my blog, but am a little hesitant with it also. 🙂
    My mother in law took a cruise last summer (USA summer) and cruised around your country. The pictures she brought back showed such a beautiful country.

    Thank you so much for linking to my blog! Carry on at your own pace with Pinterest. It will come together for you in due time, or something new will pop up for all of us to learn! Ugh!

  5. I am a novice on Pinterest too but am going to try and spend a bit of time on it.
    I found you at Janice’s party, by the way 🙂

  6. A lazy weekend. That sounds like a wonderful present to give yourself. You have inspired me to do the same. Your photographs are so serene and lovely.

    Yes, I had a nice week off from working. Just enjoying life, laying on the beach, and of course blogging away! Thanks for visiting my site, please drop by again. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your posts now that I’m following you.

  8. Hi,

    Sounds like you are having quite the weekend over there, I’m kind of envious. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I had a nice time on yours.
    Regards.

    Another Pinterest Novice here, but have been reading up and will have another go mehinks. I already used it for recipes etc but didn’t know about the rest so tomoz I will have a go, will take a while for me..ha ha but I’ll get there the old grey matter can be a tad slow. Enjoy your day 🙂

    • masgautsen says:

      I’m very far from understanding Pintrest so much I can can actually use it effectively, but I can enjoy it and that’s what’s important to me 😊 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  10. hsampson says:

    Congrats! I hope you enjoy your quiet weekend! and rest a little on my behalf please! I still have a lot of things to finish these days! Have fun and rest as much as you can!

    • masgautsen says:

      Thank you! I’ve been doing a lot of resting and sent some of it your way. Hope you’re getting the things you need to do done and that the weekend is treating you good!

      • hsampson says:

        Thanks!! Yes sometimes things get slow but any way they get done. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!!

  11. […] you probably read in my previous post I’m having a lazy weekend to round off a lazy week. This is very much needed because next […]

    Just found your blog via Janice Wald’s blog party. You have such a nice look to your site, and wonderful pictures. Looking forward to reading more of your posts. 🙂

  13. Well, I’m glad I didn’t miss this one. I’ll be popping around a bit to see what the party is all about. I have had my blog connected to my Pinterest account for a long time but it has generated no traffic to the blog. That’s ok though. Pinterest is like falling down a rabbit hole for me. I get lost in all the good stuff I find and don’t look up for hours. Not good but at least I’m not shopping there. 🙂 I love all the ideas I find. I’ll have to find you on Pinterest. I’m kind of in hiding there and everywhere. Hope your weekend is going as well as mine so far. 🙂

    • masgautsen says:

      My accedental click is still the only traffic Pintrest has generated for my blog, but like you I’ve found a lot of interesting stuff there. Hope you find me. My name there is Maja Asgautsen 🙂 My weekend is treating me well and I’m glad to hear that yours seem to do the same for you.

    Sounds like a great way to get your mind ready for interviews. It looks like a beautiful setting for walks and communing with nature. I wish you so well with your interviews coming up!

  15. dweezer19 says:

    Oh. And I have been connected to Pinterest for about a year but I usually only get one or two visits from there. I think it depends on what your blog is about. Food, parties, style, seem most popular. Anyway good luck with tat.
