So you might have noticed that I am trying one month challenges throughout this year as part of my 2013 New Years resolutions. The reason for this is due to the fact that I think it will be much easier to break things down into smaller chunks, as well as these goals are not major goals for the year.
My goal for January was to meet 5 differents friends for coffee or drinks and just catch up. I am going to make that goal on Saturday which I know is in Feb but its close enough so I think I win on that one?
My goal for Feb is going to be tough but something that I think needs to be done. I am not going to drink for the entire month. No booze. Clean and sober. I am into my fourth week of being uber healthy and training hard, but I am finding that during the week I am good and very disciplined, but come the weekend and the wheels come off completely and the beer doesn’t stop flowing.
So Feb equals no booze month. It is not going to be easy as there are very few things finer than an ice cold beer after a long, hot day at work, but hey, I want to lose this belly. You might also notice that this is conveniently placed in the shortest month of the year ;)
Last week Thursday Cape Town SEO geeks were treated to quite the evening. It was Mozcation, an event the industry leading SEOMoz guys throw and boy did they throw it well!
It was a seriously well organized event and there were only two issues I had with the entire thing:
1. I didn’t get a cool ready made name tag and I had to write my own one :(
2. The panel was too short in my opinion.
Yes seriously those were the only two issues I had with the whole thing. It was a very well organized and well run event. They seriously covered it all.
Arriving to the Awesomesauce
On arrival we headed over to the registration desk. They couldn’t find my ready made name tag so I just drew my name on one and off I went. We were each given a wicked Mozcation T-shirt, a cool snappy wrist thing as well as two free drink tickets – winning! We also got a little goody bag filled with stickers, a MozBot key-ring as well as a wicked SEOMoz water bottle.
We mingled around for almost an hour and got to take some photo’s with the man himself. What a genuinely nice guy. He was very humbled and actually interested in you. He took the time to find out my name, what I did and how I was enjoying the event. Top marks there! In fact, all the SEOMoz staff were fantastic. I managed to chat to Jen Lopez their community manager for a couple minutes and she was just the same – warm, inviting and just eager to share as were all the other Mozzers as well.
