Fashion Terms Are So Complicated

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 19, 2015 in Internet |

Even a full color monitor isn’t going to help you with this one: The Daily Beast wants to tell us that we can buy Olivia Pope’s white blazer by using a new application, which would be a wonderful thing if it worked, but most people do not have a problem seeing that there is a […]

Finally, May I Present…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 14, 2015 in Internet, Publishing |

It seems almost as if it were yesterday that I first thought of writing and publishing my own works and, coupled with it, publishing monographs and short stories from other authors too. In truth it is considerably longer, and since then a lot of water has passed under the bridge. My publishing company has five […]

Blogging: Installation Is The Easy Part

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 6, 2015 in Internet |

Anyone who happens to use WordPress will already know, when you want to set up your own blog on your own server, it’s easy.

Twitter: Setting The Target Low

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 25, 2015 in Internet |

I seem to be hovering around the one thousand three hundred mark on Twitter, when it comes to people who follow my account. Sometimes it is slightly more, sometimes it is slightly less. Sometimes people follow me – with a Twitter fanfare – sometimes they silently disappear. I must admit, though, I have never thought […]

FBI: Seems Legit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2015 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

I usually see meme or photograph headers similar to the title of this piece, but thought it appropriate for this quick post which, as you see, comprises a mail I received yesterday: FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Wearing Your Daughter’s Clothes

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 12, 2015 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

At a guess I would say this must be a slip of the typing fingers because there is clearly enough room to elaborate on what is caught between those brackets. Screenshot Source: Twitter I can understand Moms wearing their daughter’s clothing, for all the reasons the article mentions, but a Dad wearing his daughter’s clothing? […]

For A Moment There: Couch Potato Hopes And Dreams

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 10, 2015 in Internet |

Finally, an application for your smartphone which really makes sense! For all those who are tired of having to move closer to the television, stand up and get a beer from the kitchen, reach a remote control that has slipped over the edge of your favorite sitting unit and is lying on the floor just […]

Falling For The Sucker Punch

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 30, 2014 in Internet |

I wonder whether this really works, whether people really get in touch with the sender of the original mail – thus confirming their address – or even try to upgrade their accounts. I can imagine some people might, if they don’t read beyond the first few words, and they might even attempt an upgrade of […]

If you ever happen to take a glance at Flickr, a once higher popular photographic community recently taken over by Yahoo!, you will notice firstly that it hasn’t been abandoned by all the good photographers simply because of the change of ownership and, secondly, the selection of photographic works available there can be outstanding, inspiring, […]

Shock, Horror And The Art Of Clickbait

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

Have you ever seen something which really grabs your attention, either in real life or here in our virtual world, gone into or clicked through to see what it is all about and discovered that there is nothing there of interest? Or, worse still, that the attracting headline, title or offer bears absolutely no resemblance […]
