Twitter: Getting Good Placement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2015 in Internet |

The saying Timing Is Everything has had its day. Now, with the fast-moving, interactive, shallow-concentration days of the Internet and social media, placement is everything. If you can get you message across in exactly the right place at exactly the right time, you’re in there. The trouble is, no matter how many algorithms may be […]

Getting On My Nerves

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 22, 2015 in Internet |

Sometimes I have the feeling that if you compliment someone – or something – too soon after a change, things go bad. I don’t mean that a relationship sours off or anything like that, but what you have complimented, what you considered good, an improvement or whatever, tends to be overshadowed by something else. So […]

Changes For The Better

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 14, 2015 in Internet |

Back in March, as some may well remember, I complained that I felt Yahoo could be killing Flickr with their advertising policy, with slow connections and so on. I am one of those who enjoys going through Flickr, seeking out photographs, even using Creative Commons images from Flickr on this site. Slow is what I […]

Mother’s Day: Abusing The Memory

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

Today, in some countries around the world, is a day when we say Thank You to those who, selflessly, cared for us during those first years of our lives. We thank our mothers for the time they sacrificed for us, for the effort in bringing us into the world and the love and care shown […]

It’s A Quiet News Day In England

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 4, 2015 in Internet |

The excitement is over, Kate has a daughter and she’s called Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, is fourth in line to the throne and has had her first photocall for the press. Aside from which: her mother is top fit and looking as beautiful as ever, the envy of all mothers just after birth, and the BILD […]

The Downside Of Linking

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2015 in Internet |

It seems almost as if there has been a mad rush to correct something which could easily have been avoided: an older change to the algorithm Google uses to assess rankings seems to have caught some web sites off their guard. Over the last few weeks I’ve been hit with several requests to go back […]

Hacking WordPress

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 15, 2015 in Internet |

One of the big discussion themes at the moment – an ongoing theme, to be honest – is hacking and, in particular, the many attempts to hack into WordPress sites. It has been mentioned often, along with a whole series of resolutions to make a site safer, but still seems to be a theme simply […]

GoFundMe: A Blast Of Reality

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 5, 2015 in Internet |

I may well have gained the wrong impression when I signed up for GoFundMe, the crowdfunding site, the other day. I had thought it was one of those crowdfunding sites where you can create your campaign and get it out there right away. Looks like I was wrong, and I may well consider deleting it […]

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]

Testing Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2015 in Internet |

Security on the Internet, as we all should know, is of the utmost importance. No one wants to lose all their hard work, their posts, images, their public face to someone else. So I am more than pleased to see that someone from Pervouralsk in the Russian Federation (IP 31.28.97.238 under the host 238.97.28.31.interra.ru) has […]
