"Dear Bridge Farm School. Thanks for your letter and naming a house after me. Please have a picture. If you don't like it feel free to add stuff, I'm sure the teachers won't mind. Remember - it's always easier to get forgiveness than permission.

What do other people think about Facebook's aggressive push for Facebook updates to be done by users... I think this is forcing engagement on the platform to fake how engaged users are with teams they liked in the past

Story

I share a lot of content and ideas that drive me into rants but more often inspire or educate.
Introduction
I play in the digital space and have been doing it since 1994 so I have a good understanding and interest in most topics so please engage with me and feel free to share and comment on anything I share via this channel. 

I started out in this industry in 2008 under The Lost Agency as a web analyst, since I started back then have worked with several web development companies and several marketing agencies. I've worked on projects focused on Google AdWords, Google Analytics, WebTrends, Facebook Advertising, Twitter Campaigns, Social Media Strategies, SEO Audits, SEO Technical Projects, Link Building Projects and Digital Strategies.

I usually try and blog over at Lost Press Marketing which is my main site but also can be found writing for several industry blogs when I get a good topic and some headspace to write a decent post. I also love promoting conferences and events and working to increase the number of interviews done with industry players.

I'm now based in Amsterdam working for Marktplaats which is part of ebay classifieds group.  Marktplaats is a leading Dutch classifieds platform for Autos, HolidaysServices, Daily Deals, Outlets and more!

I also work with the awesome and highly social team of 2dehands.be and 2ememain.be which is the largest free classifieds site in Belgium. I also have a travel website that I blog about my travels on Travel Network.

Also can you please ensure that you have some details on your profile and some links to your projects or social profiles so I can add you to the right circle. I don't add many people to my circles so please don't feel offended if we engage and I don't add you back.

We ended up visiting this spot as it seemed like a good spot to eat, I ordered a juice but the waitress stated that I needed to show proof of age that I was over the age of 21. This was not an issue so I handed her my Dutch drivers license, she looked at it blankly and said what is this, I asked for an ID. I replied that yes this was a EU drivers license which I was advised was not good enough. I needed to provide a passport, US drivers license or military ID... there was several people in our group that didn't have our passports as how often do you take your passport out to dinner. The staff wouldn't budge on the issue, and advised me that I had to leave immediately because I couldn't prove I was over the age of 21. We ended up going another restaurant who had no issue that we only had drivers licenses to prove our proof of age. I felt humiliated at being asked to leave a restaurant when I had government issues identification and have never felt so much disrespect by a server. So if you don't have your passport and not a US citizen do not visit this venue!

What a great place to stop by for a trim when you are in town on business. Dave runs a traditional barber shop and takes great pride in his work. I stopped by to get a hair cut as I wanted to look great for a presentation I was doing later in the week.

What are lovely little spot to hang out with friends, friendly staff and their food looks amazing particularly their fries! The place has a real authentic feel to it and would certainly recommend dropping by here if you are looking for a spot to relax with friends. There is an inside area if the weather is a bit cool but in summer they have a lovely outdoor area.

A wonderful traditional dutch pub, I stopped here for a late lunch with a mate for his birthday. I wasn't sure what I should get but I went with cheese burger with a side of fries. The burger patty was quite tasty and seemed handmade which was quite refreshing as it felt like a home made burger. The side of fries was quite adequate enough that I could share some with my friends and still struggle to finish them all. One of the people in the group ordered the typical Uitsmijter and he seemed to enjoy it. They have a great range of beers if you are looking for something beyond Heineken. They also have a nice outdoor patio area if you are here on a nice day. The service is a little slow but the place has a wonderful atmosphere, I would recommend dropping by on a weekend for lunch and a drink for sure. The prices for food and drink are quite reasonable for this part of the city so you can't really go wrong :)

We stopped by here for lunch today after spending a few hours exploring Open Gardens Day, my friends were raving about the place for fish n chips so I thought i'd give it a try. We managed to get a nice spot outside and the staff were quick and friendly, I went with standard Fish & Chips (Hake) and my friends went with Fritto Misto. Our food arrived soon enough and we were hungry so we started on it, the food wasn't really that hot which made the chips not ideal to eat but I was hungry and stuck with it. I found several bones in my fish which was also mostly cold that put me off the rest of it. When it came to the end the waiter was a bit defensive about it all and got annoyed that we didn't flag it earlier. I explained that everyone was super hungry so just put up with it and no-one really wanted to wait for any longer to eat. My friend was against the idea personally of sending the food back as she was sure it would be binned/wasted so ate her food on principle. The other waitress who looked after the bill was much more apathetic to the issue and when asked if there was anything they could do I asked if they could take off the bottle of water which she replied certainly. If the fish and chips were hot this would have got a 4 star review, but I struggled with bone in the fish... I just can't continue eating a fish after digging out several bones. Other downside was sitting outside meant other customers were smoking at their tables which we knew but it was full inside and it was a beautiful day.

I stayed here in July 2014 and the hotel was a great option for the price and the location was amazing, it was nearby so many great restaurants and cafes we ended up eating out all the time. It would have been amazing if the rooms had air-conditioning or a fan but the bed was super comfortable and the shower was amazing. It's walk distance to great places to eat such as Cafe Charlot, Chez Moustache, Paperboy and Le Baromètre!

This is a wonderful little dessert shop just next to the Chiesa di Santa Lucia alla badia, so if you are in Palazzo Arcivescovile you can't miss it! They have 4 different options for Cannoli the plain, lemon, chocolate and pistachio and two sizes Small "piccolo" or Large "grande". I would suggest if you have to wait a while for dinner consider the grande option! Prices start from 2 euros upto 3.5 so it's a fairly good price for a decent Cannoli, I went with the pistachio one in a small size as I didn't want to ruin my appetite.
