Introducing a commentary commentary


August 2, 2016
Well, if truth be told
Time to be bold and force myself to admit that "A Commentary" was taken.  What was I thinking?  How would a blog host service, the pre-eminent one created by GOOGLE, not have a blog called "A Commentary".

Yuck, dumbness 101
So, stuck in the middle between my more businessy and social media brainfart resides on my optioneerJM.blogspot.ca .... which in the past few months has been inkling my inklings:: why would GOOGLE swap out my blog from a .com to a .ca?  

Sneaky devils
Just when I wasn't looking, too preoccupied by writing, or blogging as they say, I hadn't noticed that my blog was not set up as a .com one.  Really not a smart move.  Maybe there was no choice.  

Gathered intelligence
Even back then, wasn't as informative as it is now.  You can glide an ad in front of the exact demographic you pre-select defined by online habits (reading, what you look at, what you search for, what you write, what you write about, what you blog, who are your followers, where do your followers come from, how trusting are your followers now they've gotten to know you?

Richter Scale
If you hit the bar and lift it high above, these piranhas of paranoia demonstrate that there is nothing to fear, but fear itself (heard it at one of the American Nomination Conventions but can't remember who the quote should be attributed to.  The nomads of information gathering and sharing start to draw in like a magnet to those that have a high trust worthiness.  

Integrity & Honesty
Can be examined, dissected (thank you GOOGLE for helping me spell dissected when there are so many different ways you can spell it the wrong way).  A person who is above reproof in actions, activity, and influence (likelihood to click).



Likelihood to be Liked
Is a phenomena to be understood and uphold.  It doesn't mean never ever NOT controversial, yet often more intellectual.  Like a lioness protecting her young, she can stand up and be heard the very few times she'd roar.  

Roar rarely
Is a true craft that so many grasp.  You are NOT on an imaginary soapbox and people do NOT care about what you are ranting about, usually, typically.  The true grind is when it is so unbelievable, to be human you cannot but summon rage at the extreme, disappointment would be too dull.  

There is room
For new voices, new vision to soar.  Above the "cloud" free from the "web" of deceit, corruption, exploitation, ruination that so many fall under or into a deep well, or catch themselves midway during the free fall.

Champion
Mentor talent, create fame, share brilliance, recognize excellence in others for all the right reasons, not self-serving motivated.  Be a cheerleader, with a vibrant personality that becomes known to be positive, inspiring, uplifting and optimistic.  Held dearly the belief that a gift of art, music, beauty, entertainment, literature, writing can rise and be known for exuding the greatest appreciation of the talent by others.



Curation
By curating and sharing magnificent art, photography, writings, teachings, ambassadors to making the world a better place, more optimistic, peaceful.  

Beliefs
Those are the beliefs that should unfold.  Not the tyranny of attempting to trick or promote radicalness, violence, unwholesomeness, evil or greed (which equals EGO in my opinion).

Vision
The capacity and habit of looking forward more than backwards.  Who can latch on to something that could be the start of a big curve (remember when I wrote about how Adult Coloring books were going to bust open the rafters?)

Dream
Your dreams with your goals nestled safely within.  Make yourself actionable.  Do what you say you will do.

Commitment
Share the #bestofeverything as a voice of the populace not what the media wants to shape what it is the populace wants.

A Pictorial Post

Flash back to the 80s and 90s when I was an advertising sales representative.  We didn't have fancy titles, the title of where we worked in the media was our badge of honor.  Mine was magazines.  How I love the smell of the ink without the annoyance of a whole lot of black stuff rubbed on my thumb and index finger.  

Some words float out of me as part of those days.  I'll have to root through and find some of my favorite projects and share on ThePublisher blog that I created to talk about publishing.  It is a topic I love in the act of sharing information and making the world a more beautiful place.

A Pictorial, as I recall, and before I go to the ever-handy WIKIpedia for the answers ::..... is an editorial piece that is almost all visual photography, imagery or art with only captions below minimally.  It allows the viewer to absorb and take in the image fleetingly capturing where your eyes fall upon.  Comments unnecessary, yet impossible if you are its creator, who happens to l…

Things that will make you think and say "huh"

I was looking around, surfing the net and was wandering indiscriminately around based on the various links that are emailed to me.  I guard my email address in such a way that I have everything organized, categorized.  It is important that when I subscribe to a site, that it does something for me.  Personally.  Not my husband, nor my family nor my employer.  It is my time.  Yes, it makes me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, employee when I do so.  

What I see and what I post are random and make me mentally say "huh".  Not loudly as an acclamation "HUH!!" nor drawn out with puzzlement as in "huH??"  Just a small registration, like a blip, I mentally register with a "huh".  As in, interesting, let me read more.

You would think that as a person you have to be guarded and wary of giving too much of yourself away, to be taken unawares and exposed to danger, inconvenience, unwarranted attention, unsolicited retention.  

Imagine being a compa…

Triumph over struggle

This blog was originally written earlier today (Saturday, March 4, 2017) on my optioneerJM blog on Word Press ~ where I find an atmosphere of support and celebration of original writing among those who write themselves.  It is the highest compliment any fledgling writer can have.Like most of us at the tail end of Baby Boomers while being drowned out by Millennials, we're trying to get ahead.  Achieve success, notoriety or acclaim.  Subsidize our career choices with our inner voices.  To help others, to help ourselves.  To exhaust our demons by writing and exhuming scars that life has left on our brains.Confidence or competenceA struggling battle between what we want to express and be appreciated for our words.  So many of us write to right the struggles we have fought, the wars we have lost, the lessons we have learned.Gratitude: pitiful compensationWe appreciate the acknowledgement by others who are in chained to the common goal:  of being paid for our words.  What a steep mounta…
