Our failures stem from fear… but surely someone succeeds?

Yesterday, I blogged about the basis of our fears. Today I'm thinking of other issues related to fear. Think of the personal consequences, and think of who benefits from one's personal fears. You and I may not even consciously view these as fears or as the demons you must battle against. When danger looms ahead, … Continue reading Our failures stem from fear… but surely someone succeeds?

Who are you? A Sobbing Sucker, or a Stoic Writer?

In either case, you're the one losing out. If you're crying out aloud because you're being exploited, thereby letting the world hear about those who exploit you, you're soon out of work. If you silently suffer the hurt, but keep writing for those who'll suck you dry for pennies, you're helping them make money with … Continue reading Who are you? A Sobbing Sucker, or a Stoic Writer?

Had trouble finding followers?

That's the trouble... why do we even think of this as trouble. Are we Pied Pipers driving the art of writing to its death? Those who truly think independently, don't quite care about a fan following. The real independent thinkers and philosophers wrote their ideas or expressed them. Because they made sense we read about … Continue reading Had trouble finding followers?

SEO tools, or cheese tactics? Back Links, Cross links, Outbound Links…

As a blog reader, have you noticed that often you're reading a particular post, and all of a sudden you find you're somewhere else - either on another post written by the same blogger, or on an entirely different blog!

Curiosity… about organic growth, seo driven copy, reader driven content.

For a couple of weeks last month I was busy, training intensely for a project... there was a fair amount of 'learning', but I'm bound by an NDA, so shan't speak of it further... lips are zipped. In any case, why worry, this post isn't about speaking, it's about writing... 'content' for the web! I … Continue reading Curiosity… about organic growth, seo driven copy, reader driven content.

Sticky factor… more than a simple marketing term!

Many of you hip folks are now bored of the 'f' word, and have moved on, I presume... but I have yet to cross that threshold... Hey, what were you thinkin' about? I was referring to facebook...  the resting point for over a billion people across the globe every month... yay, I have these numbers … Continue reading Sticky factor… more than a simple marketing term!

Rajeev introduced me to these entrepreneurs… virtually!

Blink an eye and a whole month goes by... goodbye August, but not before a mention that I was in august company today... umm, well, that's sort of stretching the truth. Okay, so these were people I watched online in brief interviews posted to YouTube - 5 minutes to 15 minutes each... but oh, they … Continue reading Rajeev introduced me to these entrepreneurs… virtually!

Pablo Bartholomew… passionate artist, photographer, photo-journalist

Today, reminiscing about my 'advertising' career in India - soon fading; and while reviewing my sporadic flirtations with photography; about Ektachrome, Kodachrome (also now relegated to the archives of photography), my thoughts drifted to the time Pablo Bartholomew was doing a calendar assignment for Kodak.  The theme for that specific year (somewhere in the mid-'80s, … Continue reading Pablo Bartholomew… passionate artist, photographer, photo-journalist

Monday morning blues… it’s that darned typo!

However, this may draw a smile... reproduced from The Shawinigan Standard - December 24, 1947.

Kabab Palace, Tempe, AZ… beyond kababs… offers veges & vegan!

Since the Kabab Palace AZ website seems infected with a virus (when I last checked a couple of days ago), I thought of reproducing their menu and flyer images here for those interested in sampling good Indian cuisine in the Greater Phoenix Area. After a visit to their restaurant  you can determine whether or not … Continue reading Kabab Palace, Tempe, AZ… beyond kababs… offers veges & vegan!
