A weekend of learning.

This weekend I went to a Portland Blogger meet-up. It was awesome because not only did I get to see my real life internet friends, I also learned stuff. Do you know what SEO is? I didn't either. But now I do! …kinda. I was a bad student in the back of the class talking to my friends (Linnea, Sam and Abby). I did take some practical notes though! I also got this super cute mug that Jenni made as our favor.

One thing I did learn that I will have trouble using, is the obvious point that your title and tags need to have key words and somewhat relate to what your post is really about. I struggle with that because I would rather have my title be eye-catching and weird rather than relevant. Meh, we’ll see how it goes.

Other things I learned this weekend are:

1. There is an Elephants going in down the street from my house. My heart is rejoicing but my wallet is pissed.

2. This is my favorite note from church this weekend. It was timely and lovely and beautifully put.

I hope your short T-giving weeks are as stellar as mine! Even with all this narst rain. 


  1. Elephants is my absolute favorite place!

  2. #1, why do I never know about portland blogger meetups? I think i am a loser.
    #2, Your wallet is pissed, hahahahahahaha!
    #3, love your note from church. so true :)

  3. Ooh, new Elephants, exciting! Glad you made it to the SEO meetup and hope it was useful. The title/relevance thing is a little counter intuitive for some types of bloggers, but maybe you can find a balance and use : subtitles, or heading styles in your text to make it clear what you're talking about?


I love hearing from you all! Your comments regularly make my day.

Thanks for stopping by!
