I Blog, Therefore I Am

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2015 in Internet |

The art of blogging, it is fair to say, has come of age. Although more younger people are just beginning to write their thoughts and lives for the Internet public to see, there are millions of older bloggers who have managed to overcome the first three months of cyberlife and continue to write. They have […]

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 […]

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 […]

Thoughts Before The New Year

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 11, 2015 in Photography |

I found this back in December and was wanting to publish it before the start of the new year. Guess it got lost somewhere along the way so, although it is no longer new year, let alone before the new year, I thought I’d do it today. Not just because it is a wonderful ideal, […]

Worse Than A Scrawl

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 24, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Someone wrote, many years ago, that you can tell the character of a person by their handwriting. Someone else decided that it was the state of their workplace, another person which animal they own, another…. you get the idea. The thought about handwriting came to my mind the other day when someone, who was not […]

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 […]

Correcting My Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I think it must be because I do not look like an American that some people believe they can correct my use of my own Mother Tongue, especially when they have spent so much time learning the language in school. Today I was peacefully making a few notes ready for a future piece of writing, […]

Is A Negative Review A Bad Thing?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 7, 2014 in Publishing |

Negative reviews are nothing new, whether they refer to books or to anything else, there is always going to be someone who does not see things in the same light, with the same enthusiasm, as their creator, as the writer, photographer, artist, cook, whatever. When we look back through the history of literature, we find […]

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 […]

It Seems Like An Age Ago

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 11, 2014 in Personal |

There are times when I don’t recognize my own writing. I don’t mean my handwriting, although that can be hard enough at times, but those things I wrote here, or as a short story, several years ago. Sometimes my writing style, the words I use, the ideas behind a blog post, behind a story or […]
