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as I know that these sorts of posts will be seen over a period of about a month and then will be considered to be out of date.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…

Earlier this week I went to the art museum to look at the current excebition called Dark side of the moon. I really enjoyed the rather corny art.
The excebition was of a lot of different pieces of art from big flower sculptures to animated videos and sound.
After I had a look at the excebition there was a lecture by my cousin who has a PHD in gender science and Sience fiction. It was very interesting and a great way to spend an afternoon and not just sit around the appartment staring at a screen.
Close to where I live there is an old Police station that is now turned in to a place with activities for youth. An just next to this there is some Street Art.
The building might get torn down along with others, but there is no decition on what to do with the area, so the artist has been allowed to decorate the buildings.
This is a post I started writing a long time ago, but the draft has just been sitting in my draft folder and I decided that it was about time to do something about it and get it published and Throwback Thursday seemed like a good time to get it out.
Last Easter in Ireland I decided to go for a Literary Pub Crawl. Dublin is a city known for it’s writers and literature and I have previously visited the Dublin Writers Museum and I enjoyed that a lot. So this time I thought I would get to discover more of the Irish writers and their watering holes. Even if the number of pubs in Dublin have become a lot fewer than the 3000 it used to have, around 850 pubs is still a good number. And in this pub crawl we got to visit quite a few great literary ones.
We met up for the tour at a good old pub called The Duke and the group that was there for the tour was a very varied group with people from all over Europe, America and Canada. The atmosphere was great and the actors that conducted the tour was simply wonderful storytellers and good performers.
Not all the stops was at a pub, we also stopped off in the grounds of Trinity College to hear about all the writers that went to school here. Walking in the grounds of the College in the evening, listening to stories, was really a great experience.
Among the famous writers we heard more about was Joyce, Behan, Yeats, Beckett and Wilde. But also more from the very rich Irish literary history. It’s not without reason that Dublin is called City of Literature by UNESCO.
We visited a pub called O’Neill and after we gathered outside for more information by the statue of Molly Malone. All of the people that joined the tour except for a Spanish family that brought their quite young son and did not have too much English. But everyone else had a really good time. The tour was the perfect mix between interesting facts about Irish writers and visiting good pubs.
I found the tour online at Dublin Pub Crawl and thought it could be fun and it really was. I can recommend it to everyone looking for something to do in Dublin.
