    It is a Friday after all.

    I am going through all my hubs to find the ones that I think have potential, now that I understand much more about keyword research, and assessing the competiton. It is a worthwhile exercise so that I can uncover hubs that with a few more backlinks could do well, and mark off those that aren't worth my time and I can leave to gather dust.

    But my goodness this is a demoralising exercise. Repeatedly I am asking myself 'what on earth were you thinking'! At least I understand with those hubs where I went wrong. But a little drop of whiskey would sure help take the edge off the pain smile

      Maybe lay off the hard stuff until later and just have a beer?

      You're my new inspiration. tongue

      Seriously though, don't be so hard on yourself. You seem to be doing phenomenally well.

    I usually wait until I hear a couple of chimes,

    Some times it's the door bell,

    But who am I to argue a good thing.

    4:30 is about right - the sun being 'under the yardarm'

    No, it's not too early. I like to have a little scotch after lunch sometimes. Of course, it's always better when you have good friends around so you're not getting drunk by yourself.

    That seems to be a general yes then. Maybe I'll have a medicinal glass of wine then. I am trying to pysche up the courage to look at some of the old hubs.

    It's only too early if you've just got out of bed to go to work.  Have one for me!

    Usually sports on tv involves mates and cooking some good food.

    So whatever time it is on the weekend doesnt really matter to me.

    But i have a rule to not dring during normal working hours of 8 am to 4 pm. After that who cares.

    I haven't had a drink in two years [pregnant and then BF]. I'd take one whenever I could get one! [Planning to wean and go all out on new years.]

    Drink one for me. Oh and feel free to keyword analyse my hubs in your drunken state. I'm sure some of the results would be funny!

    I have often sat in the sun on my balcony here around 4pm and onward drinking beer and listening to music!

    4:00 in our home growing up was always "cocktail hour". When I travelled in Europe the bars opened and served in the morning. smile
