Spam: Another Milestone?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 17, 2014 in Internet |

Tomorrow I will hit another mark in the fight against spam. Well, not exactly since it is not really a fight, more of a submit and delete. Tomorrow my stats will show that more than eighty-five thousand spam comments have been caught and deleted on this blog. Photo Credit: chrismar – Creative Commons The big […]

Stopping The Spam Flood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 12, 2014 in Internet |

Hardly a day goes by – hardly an hour up until this morning – when my mail box isn’t filled with messages I really do not wish to see. After a while it becomes more than a chore, deleting all the rubbish, seeking out the real messages, blocking the real addresses or websites used by […]

The New PC Ethnic Origin

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 9, 2014 in Internet |

It is a given, in a multicultural society, that people are defined according to their looks, their ethnic origins or what we believe to be their origins. We have American Indians, Asian-American, Afro-American and so on. In fact, it seems as if there is no end to how we try to define people, try to […]

Selling On The Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 8, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I am amazed at how difficult it is to set up an account and sell books on the Internet. It’s not so much the regulations involved, more how difficult certain sites make it just to register, as if they really don’t want you to use their site, don’t want to earn their (often exceptionally high) […]

Facing Off The Attack

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

Someone out there is trying to gain access to this blog. They are using a wide variety of different IPs for the attack – I can’t consider it anything else – and using the standard log in name WordPress sets up on new blogs: admin. None of the attempts have been successful, and none will […]

How To Lose Customers Fast

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 5, 2014 in Internet |

The idea of the Internet is that you have absolutely everything your heart desires at the click of a button. You visit a website – either through a link, a search result or a recommendation – and take a look at what is on offer, what might interest you. Once you’ve done that, sign up […]

How The Mighty Fall

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 1, 2014 in Internet |

Looks as if Facebook is on a buying spree, spending the billions they have (on paper at least) on adding to their network, enhancing what they already have and, through these acquisitions, becoming a real power to be reckoned with on the Internet, in social media. Not that they weren’t before, but these expansions add […]

Amazon And April Fool’s Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 1, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I seem to be having a problem with Amazon, not that I deal with them yet, but generally they are being a pain in the ass and, therefore, I have nominated them as April Fools for this year. A short while ago I mentioned that Amazon have listed my brand new publications as being Out […]

The Internet: Let Your Thoughts Flow Freely!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 23, 2014 in Internet |

A friend of mine decided, a few weeks ago to get back into blogging, something he hasn’t done for about five years. The question he asked was: where should he blog? Should he use an independent site, fix himself up with a ready-made one such as wordpress.com or blogger, or go the whole hog and […]

Better Safe And Invisible Than…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 15, 2014 in Internet |

I still get asked what I look like, little messages, mails, comments elsewhere asking me to send out photographs of myself, and not always prime and proper photographs at that! I guess we live in a society, in a culture where the appearance of a person is far more important to some than what they […]
