Oh, You Foolish Few

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 26, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

Not so long ago I wrote about how Tumblr is becoming the latest thieves site: shoplifters posting their swag pictures for all to see and admire. Those on Tumblr, however, clearly have a little more in their heads than other people, such as a woman in West Franfort, Illinois who decided to post a selfie […]

Losing That Precious Sense Of Humor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 22, 2014 in Internet |

I am constantly amazed at how some people can find humor in the most ridiculous things, but completely lose it when that humor could be seen to refer to them, or to something that they are connected to. A perfect example is this post – by Mara Mascaro – showing the difficulties of producing items […]

Copyright: There’s Something You Haven’t Quite Understood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 21, 2014 in Internet |

All this talk about copyright, the commercial use of photographs, photo theft and the like reminds me a little of the misconceptions over commercial use of individual images by certain social media web sites we frequent and the means some people go to, to try to protect their property. I am thinking specifically about sites […]

Blogging: Evolution Is The Way Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 19, 2014 in Internet |

It’s fair to say that after more than four years this blog has gone beyond the creation stage. It has a firm and relatively stable place on the Internet, frequent and regular visitors and a relatively good ranking against other, similar sites. With creation completed, it is once again time to look at how it […]

WordPress Security: Nice Try Spammer

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 11, 2014 in Internet |

Whilst the number of spam comments has drastically dropped thanks to my WordPress settings and Akismet, there are still one or two which come through and hit the approval queue – in the spam folder – just in case. This is a good thing, even if almost everything that appears there does simply get deleted. […]

Click And You’re Done!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 10, 2014 in Internet |

Nothing could be easier: snap the shot, click on another button and an app automatically sends your image to Facebook, Twitter or wherever you happen to wish. Or, in some cases, exactly where you don’t wish it to be seen. How many men and women have sent out a photograph of themselves without checking to […]

It May Seem Obvious, But…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2014 in Internet |

I came across two interesting Tweets in the last few days which made me wonder whether some professionals really consider what they are doing before they send out either Tweets or articles for general consumption. They both strike me as being examples of seeing without really understanding, sending before re-reading and thinking. Take this first […]

Sverve: Taking The Credit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 7, 2014 in Internet |

Some readers here may well remember my comment about the social web site Sverve, where I had read a post on their blog and made a few suggestions for how to improve the site. Or, at least, the comment that measuring a person’s social rank by just using Facebook and Twitter alongside Sverve does not […]

A Complicated Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 6, 2014 in Internet |

There’s nothing like learning a language to broaden your horizons, not just from a traveling point of view but also because with a second language – or third for some – it is possible to access a wealth of other things not usually available. For me the second language is clearly German, which makes a […]

Publishing: The Worst Review Advice

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 6, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

You wouldn’t believe how much stress there is involved in just reviewing a book. Every single reviewer knows how much work has been put into the volume they have in their hands; how much an author has invested; how proud they are of their creation. The reviewer, however, also has their work to do, and […]
