WordPress: Is The Software Becoming Bloated?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 7, 2016 in Internet |

I was looking through some of the software which powers WordPress this morning, not because I necessarily want to change anything, but more because I want to understand what everything is and how it all works. It is fine having something which works and, in the case of WordPress, works well, but also good to […]

Photography: You Don’t Need An App For That

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 24, 2015 in Photography |

When I started blogging I had no idea at all. I thought it would be as easy as everyone said it would be, and the world would just fall at my feet, begging me for more and adorning my posts with hundreds of deep and meaningful comments. There are bound to be people who still […]

Yet Another Spam Failure

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

Now and then I get spam, when ‘now and then’ is every few minutes, which is automatically cast into the trash so that I don’t need to worry about it. Looking through the figures which WordPress so kindly supplies, I see that Akismet has dealt with over five hundred and forty thousand items of spam […]

I Blog, Therefore I Am

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2015 in Internet |

The art of blogging, it is fair to say, has come of age. Although more younger people are just beginning to write their thoughts and lives for the Internet public to see, there are millions of older bloggers who have managed to overcome the first three months of cyberlife and continue to write. They have […]

Arrogant Or Misogynistic?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 21, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Some people simply cannot accept that other people are entitled to their own opinion, their own interpretation of things in our modern world, without jumping up and down and trying to belittle them. I had the dubious pleasure, a few days ago, of reading and replying to a few comments here on a post which […]

The Joy Of Blogging

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 4, 2014 in Internet |

I read something very strange this evening which came as a great surprise to me. Not quite the chin-down-on-chest surprise, more of a mind-blowing, well-I-never surprise. Someone wrote this sentence on their blog and it threw me completely: I thought blogging every day would be a burden, but it actually became a great source of […]

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 […]

The Right Time To Blog?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2014 in Internet |

Amid all this talk, as far as the more technical or even business side of the Internet is concerned, about SEO and Reach, Page Ranking and Clicks, the question of when it’s the right time to post on a weblog raises its ugly head now and then. As if it is possible to tell anyone […]

Are Blog Comments Worthwhile?

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

As the owner of a weblog I take some interest in ensuring that what I write, what I publish, is not just of interest to me, but also to the many hundreds of people who visit here each and every day. If I didn’t this weblog would disappear very quickly: vanish into the ranks of […]

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 […]
