Blogging: Evolution Is The Way Forwards

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 19, 2014 in Internet |

It’s fair to say that after more than four years this blog has gone beyond the creation stage. It has a firm and relatively stable place on the Internet, frequent and regular visitors and a relatively good ranking against other, similar sites. With creation completed, it is once again time to look at how it […]

Taking Note Of The Title

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 17, 2014 in Publishing |

Yesterday I wrote about the various means by which a writer can begin their work: by using a provided opening paragraph; by simply writing until the fear of a blank page is gone; by using notes and ideas planned long in advance. Despite my post title, I didn’t write anything about using Titles or Grammar, […]

Blank Pages, Titles, Writing And Grammar

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 16, 2014 in Personal |

I read recently on Twitter an entry by a female novelist about how she begins writing, how she overcomes the fear of a blank page. She says that, rather than planning how to start, she simply sits down and writes whatever comes into her mind for the first ten minutes. This removes the fearsome blank […]

Publishing: The Worst Review Advice

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 6, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

You wouldn’t believe how much stress there is involved in just reviewing a book. Every single reviewer knows how much work has been put into the volume they have in their hands; how much an author has invested; how proud they are of their creation. The reviewer, however, also has their work to do, and […]

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 […]

Are Blog Comments Worthwhile?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 23, 2014 in Internet |

As the owner of a weblog I take some interest in ensuring that what I write, what I publish, is not just of interest to me, but also to the many hundreds of people who visit here each and every day. If I didn’t this weblog would disappear very quickly: vanish into the ranks of […]

There Are Times….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 18, 2014 in Personal |

I spend a good deal of my time thinking strange thoughts. I don’t mean just those seemingly strange thoughts which I have written about over the last few days, which are only strange to people who cannot allow their fantasy to run free or their mind to wander elsewhere. My strange thoughts tend to be […]

Tomorrow Is Another Big Day

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2014 in Publishing |

It’s a strange feeling, finally holding a printed copy of a book you’ve worked on for several months and knowing that this is the result of hard work, of sweat and, sometimes, a few tears. But, tomorrow, we reach another milestone with my writing, with my publishing endeavors: A New Beginning: A Siebenmeier-Eichenwald Tale comes […]

The Internet: Let Your Thoughts Flow Freely!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 23, 2014 in Internet |

A friend of mine decided, a few weeks ago to get back into blogging, something he hasn’t done for about five years. The question he asked was: where should he blog? Should he use an independent site, fix himself up with a ready-made one such as wordpress.com or blogger, or go the whole hog and […]
