Meetings Per Week

Meetings Per Week

So I thought I would throw together a quick visual and see how many meetings I am in in a given week. Right now, I am average between 50 and 60. It will be interesting to see what happens with this trend overtime. 

Victim of SEO Optimization

The only traffic to my website is from people creating external links
#firstworldproblem

So part of my job is to do SEO optimization. It is not my entire job, but it is one of the items in my toolbox that I use on a regular basis. Well, on our family website that I never update, Telford Family dot org, I started to get some comments on a post I did on our camping and outdoors nursery linking to a couple mural websites. Well, it turns out that the post is the number one search term for “camping nursery” on google. Since we had such a high ranking, some SEO expert was out there trying to improve their site’s score by including a link from my thread, or at least real traffic from people viewing the link.

I went in and moderated the comments down, but maybe, for good karma, I should have let them stay. Someone might do the same for one of my clients some day.

The Advantages of Travel

One of the many advantages of traveling is the opportunity to try new and different experiences, in this case beer. Yeungling is one of the few breweries to survive the consolidation in the middle of the last century. Not available in Illinois, and only recently in Ohio, they produce a number of Lagers and this Black and Tan mix. Nothing super fancy but not a bad beer.

Mikkeller Hoppy Lovin Christmas

This beer was very hop heavy but tasty. The first taste was pretty strong and held throughout. A tiny bit of pine on the nose does give it at least a partial reason to be a XMas beer, but it is a bit of a stretch. Still enjoyable and not bad after a busy weekend.
