Twitter Links: Hitting Rock Bottom

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

For some sites, security is of the utmost importance, and that is a good thing. As we read, almost every single week of the year, about another breach, about more phishing, about millions of e-mail addresses, social security numbers, names and address, bank account details being stolen from their supposedly secure repositories on a server […]

Tim Parks’ References, Please: A Reply

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 16, 2014 in Publishing |

The Internet is good for many things, but it should never be considered an adequate substitute for research, for reading and for learning from – where possible – original sources. It is a mass, if not a mess, of thoughts, learning, quotation and misquotation, false paths and short-cuts used by students all over the world […]

Books: Getting Things In Order

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 27, 2014 in Personal |

There are stacks in the bedroom, on the side table in our living room, along one wall in the small hallway, right when you enter the apartment. Behind the couch are more, just growing there as new titles are added every few days. My small library, those few choice books I brought with me to […]

Books: Setting Targets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2014 in Personal |

Anyone who hasn’t caught on to my love of books clearly hasn’t managed to grasp the whole story yet, although I’ve never been one to trumpet what I’ve read it can’t be said that I have never mentioned books and reading in my blog. Fortunately I am not the only one who enjoys reading, who […]

Sverve: Taking The Credit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 7, 2014 in Internet |

Some readers here may well remember my comment about the social web site Sverve, where I had read a post on their blog and made a few suggestions for how to improve the site. Or, at least, the comment that measuring a person’s social rank by just using Facebook and Twitter alongside Sverve does not […]

Ever wondered what there is to watch on the television without having to zap through all the channels in order to find just the right program? Ever wished there was an easy way to find just the right film or series to arouse your interests and keep you glued to the couch with a bucket […]

Twitter: Not Quite Dead Yet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2014 in Internet, News & Opinion |

I don’t know who first said it – although it’s probably well documented on the Internet somewhere – but the reports of the death of one or another social media platform are exaggerated. At the moment or, better, once again, it is Twitter that has died or is in its final throes. When you’ve nothing […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 25, 2014 in Publishing |

This morning it came to an end: my Goodreads Giveaway of free copies of The Temptation of Words with, to my surprise, over five hundred people signing up for one of the two copies on offer. Equally surprising the high number of people who marked it as To Read when they entered the competition although, […]

Books: Finally Out There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 14, 2014 in Publishing |

After a good deal of hard work – which I am definitely getting used to! – our first three titles are now available on Amazon for anyone who wishes to buy through their system instead of through our shop or Etsy. That is, it is available on their US site but, for some reason, there […]

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 […]
