Here’s what you missed if you didn’t visit my blog in December:
This 8th series of mini virtual trips unfolds all over the central and western map of the United-States and Canada throughout April and July 2012. 5 new badges and 8 level-ups for expertise badges.
I haven’t yet visited Edmonton, so I haven’t personally been to the Hard Rock Cafe there, while it was open. My father did visit it although I could not tell you when. The Hard Rock Cafe Edmonton opened on July 7th 1994 and was closed in June of 2000 along with those in Calgary, Banff, Whistler and Vancouver.
As I started collecting articles for my 2013 predictions post, I came across a few that went beyond 2013. So, purely for the fun of looking at forecasts and crystal balls, are predictions for 2014 and beyond.
This 17th virtual trip covers my Foursquare activities on the east coast between April and May 2012. Here is a mix of new partner badges and experience badges level ups.
Every year I publish a round up of the various blog posts that crop up on the web predicting what next year will be like – I stick to interactive marketing and relevant topics as this would never end.
As I was compiling my 8th west coast virtual trip, I realized I had more than enough to publish a stand-alone Las Vegas virtual trip blog post, which is what this here post is. Four new badges, one city badge and three new casino badges, along with level-ups for many experience badges.
In November on my blog: Hard Rock Cafe Edmonton and Banff, virtual Foursquare trips and CRM shopping
Here’s what you missed if you didn’t visit my blog in November:
This is another location I have not visited personally, however I did visit Banff for a conference in May of 2001 – I highly recommend visiting the view, from anywhere in the city or area, is simply breathtaking. The Hard Rock Cafe Banff closed in June 2000, so I missed it by a year. It closed at the same time as other Canadian locations including Calgary, Edmonton, Whistler and Vancouver. But, as luck would have it, my dad who traveled a lot for business back then did visit it while it was open and got me a t-shirt. The Hard Rock Café Banff originally opened on October 22, 1995.
This 5th series of overseas excursions, like my previous ones, focuses on new city badges, and leveling-up expertise badges while I’m there – at this point, I already have 16 expertise badges at level 10. Several new media and telecom badges were released around April and May of 2012.
