After noticing a few beer orientated search engine terms that people were typing in and somehow arriving on the blog, I typed Larbert Beer Festival into Google. Much to my surprise the 3rd and 4th results belonged to “Where the Fatdog Walks”.
I typed the same into Searchalot and “Where the Fatdog Walks” had knocked CAMRA off the top 2 spots!
I then started typing Dobbie Hall, Larbert and Beer into the search engine in the hope that such a major event (for Larbert) was being properly advertised somewhere! Other than the Fatdog and CAMRA there was not a sniff of the beer festival anywhere.
Who’s in charge of promoting this event? So far it looks like the battle for top advertiser is between myself and CAMRA…and their effort is, I’m sad to say, fairly lower case. I’m thinking of looking for a sponsorship deal. Maybe the Fatdog can have a beer named after her.
If that wasn’t strange enough earlier today at work I was looking at a disused railway bridge, now part of a path network between Grangemouth and Falkirk, when a man went past with an enormous parrot on his shoulder.
I think I’m beginning to crack up. I need to go lie down…
