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. You unpack the package, point it through your chosen FTP client to the appropriate file and then click-through the installation URL in your browser. After that it gets a touch more […]

I Just Couldn’t Put It Down!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 13, 2014 in Publishing |

A great deal of hard work goes into producing a book, more than some people imagine, and just as much goes into marketing it in the hope of selling every single copy printed. One of the major ways in which books are publicized today is through the Internet, and that goes especially for independent and […]

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 […]

Rules, Regulations And Revisions

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

Where would we be without rules and regulations? Some say that life would be much happier, easier, less burdened by paperwork and I can definitely agree with the last sentiment. At the same time, though, we would all be open to so much abuse from the unscrupulous, from tricksters, marketers, industry and advertizing we’d hardly […]

Spam: Another Milestone?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 17, 2014 in Internet |

Tomorrow I will hit another mark in the fight against spam. Well, not exactly since it is not really a fight, more of a submit and delete.

Stopping The Spam Flood

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 12, 2014 in Internet |

Hardly a day goes by – hardly an hour up until this morning – when my mail box isn’t filled with messages I really do not wish to see. After a while it becomes more than a chore, deleting all the rubbish, seeking out the real messages, blocking the real addresses or websites used by […]

Facing Off The Attack

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 6, 2014 in Internet |

Someone out there is trying to gain access to this blog. They are using a wide variety of different IPs for the attack – I can’t consider it anything else – and using the standard log in name WordPress sets up on new blogs: admin. None of the attempts have been successful, and none will […]

I’m Sorry, But Could You…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 23, 2013 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

I comment on other blogs sometimes, not always, but definitely when I think I can add a little to the conversation. That’s one of the things which makes the Internet what it is, on the blogging front at least, conversation, discussion, showing interest. Some people can’t do this, some people just do not have the […]

Data. Little pieces of information placed together to gain an insight into a specific something. It might be movements, finances, lives, spying, terrorism, sales, whatever you care to think of. Our lives are controlled by a mass of data which we – and others – gather constantly, whether we wish them, or us, to or […]

Forced Access II

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 24, 2013 in Internet, News & Opinion |

Is someone else trying to test out what I wrote yesterday, to see what happens when they try certain commands from the front end (what you see here) of my site? It certainly looks that way, until you read a little further down through the log and see that not only are the attempts close […]
