Blogger Twitter Whatever, September 22nd 2011

Its been April since our last meetup (I’ve been working flat out!).. so as part of the latest round of ad-hoc meet-ups in Dublin (Ireland) .. we decided to run another Blogger-Twitter-Whatever (BTW) meetup.

The plan is to meet up 7pm on Thursday 22nd September in Rúta, King St North, Dublin.  There will be food, drinks (free pints of the black stuff) and well .. whatever!

The meetup is quite informal, there is no agenda and no presentations. People just meet up, chat, (some people) network and everyone has a good time! It would be great if you could invite some friends to register. :P more the merrier!  I’d really appreciate if everyone could give BTW meetup a big push!

The event is free to attend. Continue Reading →

BTW Meetup Feb 3rd 2011

As part of the latest round of ad-hoc meet-ups in Dublin (Ireland) .. we decided to run another Blogger-Twitter-Whatever (BTW) meetup.

The plan is to meet up 7pm on Thursday 3rd Feb in O’Byrne’s Beverage House, King St N. We will chow down and celebrate Chinese new year in style! There will be food, drinks and well .. whatever!

What i like about the venue:

They are doing things different from your average pub. Yes they have the same beer as every other boring pub in the country but they also have a selection of craft beer (micro brew) from some Irish micro breweries as well as Lithuanian beer.

The event is free to attend.

The guys over at Blacknight have offered to sponsor some drinks. So we will have some free food and some free drinks .. what more can you ask for!

I thought it might be nice to give blacknight a plug.. so check out their offers over at http://getpersonalwith.me/. If you’re looking for a personal branded domain name then .me is the perfect choice. Nothing quite says you like .me . Blacknight for the win!

It would be great if you could invite some friends to register. :P more the merrier! There will be finger food. Id really appreciate if everyone could give this one a big push!

Normal Service Resumes

It’s been a while since my last blog post. Some of you may or may not have know but back in April I left self employment for the lure of a permanent role. The new job consumed most of my time so I didn’t really feel like tuning in to social media when I clocked off. The job had a big title but had a lot of risk attached. Regrettably after 3 months, I decided the role wasn’t for me. My whole work life balance was a bit out of whack!

Resilient as ever, I decided to jump back on the self employment horse and get stuck in. The last week has been quite intense. I’ve been spreading the word that I’m back and Ive been blown away with the support. It’s like I never left! It blows my mind, how supportive the community is in Ireland. Everyone just seems to look out for one another and pick each other up when we fall. Its a really refreshing!

So whats coming next?

Well I’m back doing freelance web development, SEO and social media engagement.  I’m actively looking for new and exciting projects. Let me know if you have something in mind. Email [email protected] or give me a call on +353 (0)1 485 36 49 Continue Reading →
