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 […]

Fifty-Two Stories – Fifty-Two Weeks

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 27, 2014 in Publishing |

I’m not one to turn down a challenge, if it seems like something worth doing, but sometimes I do wonder whether what comes as a result is at all worth the effort. Recently I saw a challenge – or a target more than anything – leveled by someone on Twitter. The challenge was to write […]

As The Weekend Approaches

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 9, 2014 in Personal |

As the weekend fast approaches I am more than aware that I have been neglecting certain things, and that I want – as well as need – to get back into them once more. The break in Baltimore meant that I had to leave many things on my desk, just waiting for my return, no […]

Just So Tired

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 6, 2014 in Personal |

It’s amazing what a change in time zones can do to you. You know that I’ve been back in Germany for most of the weekend now, and I thought I’d have caught up with the time difference, the disruption to sleep patterns, by now, but it isn’t so. It was much easier traveling over to […]

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 […]

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 […]

A New Masonic Title Due

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

It’s a wonderful feeling, as a publisher, when a new manuscript comes in and is ready for publication, almost – I imagine – as good as the feeling when your own book hits the stands and you can hold it in your hands and show it off to all your friends. Today we completed the […]

Another Experiment Draws To A Close

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

For anyone who honestly believes that the Internet is going to bring them fame and riches, sorry, but it’s time to come back down to earth and face reality. There are very few people who can claim to have made their fortune through the Internet, although these people are often highlighted way beyond their worth […]
