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 […]

Publishing: And The Bad News Is…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 3, 2015 in Publishing |

I thought everything was going so well and, to a certain extent it was and is. My publishing plans are still on target, nothing has changed there; we have new titles in preparation for this year; the accounts for 2013 have been cleared and approved. But every silver lining has a cloud, and my tax […]

As One Door Closes…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 27, 2013 in Personal |

Who hasn’t heard it: as one door closes another opens. When something which appears to be bad luck happens we need to look and see what other opportunities are there for us and simply move on. For me it is the end of my crowd-funding attempts to raise additional money for my small publishing and […]

Is This Me?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2013 in Personal |

I decided to take my time before replying in full to a recent comment on my blog, not because I didn’t immediately know what I wanted to write – aside from the reply comment I made – but because it is sometimes far better to sleep on something than to launch into it without careful […]

Customer Service Fails

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 29, 2013 in Internet |

You must have come across them more then once, service industries (shops, restaurants, general businesses online and in Real Life) who boast of high things, and then fail miserably. I came across it personally just the other day, going into a store I use three or four times a week because I needed to use […]

Serious Or Fail?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 6, 2013 in Internet |

Raising funds for a project is not as easy as some people may imagine. Whilst an organization like Wikileaks can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for their legal defense fund, ordinary people don’t have the same scope for publicity or the same level of followers to make their much smaller campaigns work. The problems, […]

Being Honest and Making Progress

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 3, 2013 in Personal |

It has been a hard week, a lot of time spent working on the new web site, on sorting out personal finances, on preparing and setting up campaigns to get my project off the ground. And, in-between, I’ve still got college, I’ve still got a normal life and – rarely, but still – there are […]

Here’s Hoping!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2013 in Personal |

I think that I must have burned the whole package of candles over the last couple days: working through the night to get my new web site up and running, putting on content, checking facts and figures, formatting and checking potential publications and, in between all that, checking various web sites, pages, social media to […]

Funding: Getting Started

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2013 in Personal |

The first thing that I have done with my plans, the ideal of publishing my own work and that of others in print, is sleep on it. What may seem like a good idea at the start is sometimes more of a pipe dream than anything else, more something that lives in the world of […]

In With The Crowd

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 29, 2013 in Personal |

Nothing stands still, the world is constantly changing and we all need to be able to keep up with it, to adapt, to move with the times. Unless, of course, we happen to belong to the Amish Community, but even they have had to change according to the world around them in small ways. In […]
