A Sunday in April

Weather was better than forecast.

It’s been fairly dry. So today’s rain was a welcome change. But despite dark clouds and rain symbols on the Swiss Meteo app, the rain was over by lunch.

Time for a bike ride.

WOD: I cycled to Rheinfelden at a leisurely pace.

Grenzach-Wyhlen – Herten – Rheinfelden – Kaiseraugst – Birsfelden

“How Much Content Do You Need For B2B SEO Success?” http://selnd.com/1gCD1nN

For future reference:

It’s something I need to look at for my day job. If you know of any background articles please let me know.

Questions and thoughts to explore in this context:
Maintaining multilingual B2B web content is time-intensive. More pages means more maintenance. Should I delete non-performing pages? Re-fresh the content? How do I analyze which pages to discontinue or keep and which new ones to add? Carry out workshops with stakeholders such as sales?

Somewhat related is this presentation on agile marketing:

The first couple of slides remind me of discussions with Persillie on Agile methods, Scrum and software development projects.

I’d like a frugal testing machine. It would help me all along.

Complimentary links: 2 random photos from my Flickr archive. Alles wird gut.

Java Beach Cafe https://flic.kr/p/4KTi88

One of my San Francisco photos is in use on this website.

Restaurants and such continue to cluster on east-west streets, such as Judah and Taraval. If you’re staying at one of the hotels by the park, you might appreciate such establishments as the Java Beach cafe, right next door to the Oceanview Motel on the corner of Judah and La Playa, two blocks south of the park and 200 feet from the beach.

Take the stairs

Stair climbing is officially classed as “vigorous exercise”, burns more calories per minute than jogging and improves cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength.

Today’s run #wod

My running plans experienced a setback earlier this week. I had to pause for a couple of days due to a sore throat and feeling feverish. But I’m feeling much better and I went for a slow run today. It went well.

Yesterday I bought some jogging socks for my brand-new running shoes. BTW, if you’re selling running shoes, it really helps if your staff is enthusiastic. The sales staff offered good advice on how to train and knew running groups in the area.

Earlier I read this Spiegel article on Christian Hottas, who has run over 2000 marathons.

(…) es geht um den Spaß an der Bewegung, nicht darum, einen Marathon zu laufen. Ich ermutige jeden, so viel zu laufen, wie er kann und mag. Laufanfänger, die in meine Praxis kommen, unterstütze ich aber gerne. Leistung ist immer subjektiv.

Tulip snapshots for the boring flower set

Very boring.

Wikipedia on tulips.

Between 1634 and 1637, the enthusiasm for the new flowers triggered a speculative frenzy now known as the tulip mania. Tulip bulbs became so expensive that they were treated as a form of currency, or rather, as futures.
