It’s a simple thing to remember:

The day after the event everything advertising the event is outdated.

 

Yet, we somehow always only ever seem to plan up to the event.

 

But the day(s) after the event are just as crucial:

 

As the reviews are pouring in, photos being uploaded, colleagues telling their stories at work, most people who missed the event and hear about it afterwards would probably like to make sure they catch the next opportunity of such an event.

 

However, very often I find event pages leading up to an event stay frozen on their “Register now!” hype:

The day after the event visitors to the event page are still invited to register for the event.

The day after the event visitors to the event page are still invited to register for the event.

The registration of course no longer works as you have to frustratingly find out when clicking the button.

"The event has completed and registration is now closed." Ok, so what next? Registration is not possible, Log-in is not applicable for first time visitors.

“The event has completed and registration is now closed.” Ok, so what next? Registration is not possible, Log-in is not applicable for first time visitors.

 

A missed chance of connecting with the people who would make a repeat of the event possible.

 

A tip to make the best out of your event is to think one step further:

 

After the event is Before the event.

 

If you treat the day after the event like the first day of the lead-up to a new event, you run little risk of leaving your event promotion material outdated.

 

Even if you don’t intend to repeat the event, this mindset makes you consider what comes next and can help you cater for those who have missed it or attendees who are checking back for more information.

I really have nothing good to say about Bing, from the name to its performance.

 

But.

 

One thing they do incredibly well is choosing a photo of the day.

 

If you enjoy photography, and have the time and data, head over to bing.com and flick through their images.

 

And if you know something else that’s good about Bing, kindly get in touch: TrulyJuly@web.de

Unfortunately cycling the MyCiti bus route is not always safe.

Unfortunately cycling the MyCiti bus route is not always safe.

 

Hi, good evening.

Are you security staff for the train station?

May I just quickly ask:

I came this way, it’s such a cool shortcut from Woodstock to the CBD.

You know it’s so nice cycling along the MyCiTi bus route, as I have my own separate cycling lane. It’s lovely and quiet with no cars around. You can even hear the birds singing. And the flowers, when they’re in full bloom, amazing colours! And the path is so smooth and well maintained. It’s just wonderful, it makes cycling worthwhile.

So now that it’s getting dark, is it still safe to cycle back that way?

 

Let me put it this way:

If you go in there now, you won’t come back out the other end.

 

Oh.

How dreadful to know no other way than the final way out

How fearful to self harm to the degree of life threatening

How frightful to leap over the edge all alone

How unrestful to take that one step too far

How unpainful to go beyond life preserving means

How loathful to extinguish all love

How mournful to leave everything dear behind

How remorseful to sacrifice all there is, life itself

How sorrowful to find no solace but in abandonment

How fateful to go through with it

 

How awful when life becomes unbearable

How tearful when the last cry has dropped

How unhopeful, when hope dies at last

 

How tragic to miss the opportunity to be found and come back

How very sad to have yet another soul lost

 

And yet, how very selfish.

 

 

Interesting piece of art. But what does it mean? Is there an explanation somewhere?

 

I don’t see any museum labels. Wait! There on the floor, is that it?

 

What does it say? I can’t read it. It’s such a small print. And on the floor! You have to kneel down to read it.

 

It says: “DISCLAIMER – Tickets are valid for 7 days from the chosen date. This ticket is not refundable.”

I’m not very often on Instagram. But I was surprised when all of a sudden a follow request popped up.

 

My profile is public, so I really couldn’t see a reason why I’m alerted if someone is following me.

 

Until I checked out the actual request:

The answer to why I have to approve a follow request.

The answer to why I have to approve a follow request.

 

Ah. Oh. Ok.

 

So Instagram alerts me as I might not want to be followed by vulgar people. I guess thanks are in order.

 

In this case however the profile seems to belong to an artist. And if it’s in the name of art, anything goes, doesn’t it.

Mommy, why did somebody draw on the doors?

 

Because it’s art. But only here at the Zeitz MOCAA, not at home!
