May Day Occupations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I’m told that it used to be the French, back in the day, then the English took over and now, it seems, the Germans have taken the lead. Hardly a day seems to go by without one union or another calling for their members to go out on strike because the ‘management’, who they have […]

Apes And Worker’s Rights

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 22, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It was a close-cut thing, but for a few hours the US justice system really showed what it is capable of. It’s not enough that they fight over whether a woman can wear red shoes on a Sunday, or a man can tether his giraffe to a street lamp, now we have human rights – […]

New Books: The Art Of Satire?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 2, 2015 in Publishing |

Whilst it may be reasonably quiet on the Internet front it certainly isn’t so behind the scenes, and this is one of those times when I am relieved to be working with other people to keep my small publishing venture alive and kicking. My co-director has laid a new proposition – in the form of […]

Working On Two Fronts

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 15, 2015 in Publishing |

Every single time I promise myself I am going to cut back, going to relax, take a little more leisure time, I look back after a few days and realize that I’ve done the opposite. In theory I am relaxing right now, working on my degree course and steering clear of the Internet. But only […]

Finally, May I Present…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 14, 2015 in Internet, Publishing |

It seems almost as if it were yesterday that I first thought of writing and publishing my own works and, coupled with it, publishing monographs and short stories from other authors too. In truth it is considerably longer, and since then a lot of water has passed under the bridge. My publishing company has five […]

Breaking The Silence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 5, 2015 in Photography, Publishing |

It’s hard to believe that someone is working their butt off when you see no results. However, as we all know, many things cannot come into being if those in the background, the unseen people, do not do their work, and so it is here at the moment. In between writing papers and sorting through […]

Photography: Paying The Rent

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 24, 2015 in Photography, Publishing |

I have spent the last few days sorting through images stored on my main computer and, something I should have done a long time ago but didn’t really trust myself to carry through, doing a lot of deleting. For a long time I considered every single photograph precious, every image a moment in time which […]

Work Experience: Experiencing Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2014 in Personal |

You would imagine, I have no doubt, that it is easy to find a position for someone to learn a job if the company providing the job experience was required to pay no wages. It’s rather like the Intern system we have in the United States: a student comes in, gets all the rubbish jobs […]

And There She Was, Gone.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 19, 2014 in Personal |

I don’t know about hundreds, but maybe one or two have wondered where I’ve been for the last few days or so. Usually I’m fairly active on the Internet, with an almost guaranteed post here each day and visits to other social media sites at all hours of the day and night. Despite my keen […]

More Numbered Days

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Speaking of retirement, which I did a couple of days ago, the end is also approaching for Etsy. No, no need to panic, Etsy itself is not being retired from the Internet, it’s not going to vanish at the end of the year and only be stored on the WayBack Machine or in the memories […]
