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 like to write.  Think about practicing one's listening skills.  Perhaps a mindful exercise, like doing leg stretches before doing any exercise, dance or sport.  

My FAVORITE 1980s move:  E.T.

Can you think of five other 80s movies off the top of your head?  Need help? I found a site that will show you all, along with other goodies on  SHORTLIST  on "The 25 Greatest Movies of the 80s".  There were still at least a handful that I haven't seen .... yet.

I was really lucky to have stumbled across (because it wasn't via STUMBLEUPON) this fellow, TJ Houston's website.  He has instructions on how to do really cool stuff that would appeal to the Tween, Teen, Millennial, Yuppies, Baby Boomers.



ONE TO WATCH:  ZTE Corporation

ZTE Corporation of China could be a game changer in the world of telecommunications.  Can you imagine them expanding across to the Americas, Europe and beyond?  I can.

 Has really been gaining momentum.  Its readership leaping to between 800 to over 1000 page views a day.  That is remarkable because it didn't seem that long ago when it wasn't surprising to get that many in one month.  Maybe I will be able to do this full time one day, sooner than later.

I have ideas brewing for a website and how to develop it in such a way that my various blogs and subject matter become key elements.  That remains to be seen whether it comes to fruition.  I have paid for two domains so far, recently, and between the antics of frustration as an end user I'm not thinking that "Go Daddy" is going to win any awards or nominations from me.  

They are breaking a cardinal rule in sales:  don't start selling the next product or service until you're certain the first one is satisfying your customer or else the annoyance becomes more expressive and louder.  Which reminds me to go back to my email inbox, which is enormous these days with over 11,000 to date.  I need to sleuth out where that domain website is and with whom and figure out why I never did launch it.

wandering around the interglobe ....

I am pretty sure I've said this before:: I have social media ADD (attention deficit disorder).  What I mean is I can log on with a very singular purpose in mind, for example, check my email to follow up on something.

But, like a demon possessed, I scroll down the INBOX and all sorts of click bait jump out at me.  There lies another trait I have: I fall for click bait.  But as an anointed inductee, I admit that I have a problem.

You see, there is some deeper, hidden side to me that even I didn't know was there.  A youthful curiosity about anything and everything that grabs my attention, where the enthusiasm manifests (thank YOU GOOGLE CHROME spell check:  right click in GOOGLE BLOGSPOT and scroll up to top tag/link and it will show you the proper spelling of that word.

See what i mean?  I log here to blog about something and then completely think of something completely different and go on a detour for longer than it takes you to read this far.

OK, so you got the point on spellche…

An acting anything

I'm still not sure what direction this blog is going to go in.  Like my other 4 blogs, they evolved into a category that I am comfortable talking about in a demographic profile to speak for a strong spirited generation that many would think have shuffled on to the sidelines only NOW able to be discovered as doing famously well even if not famous nor infamous.

Comments about US Election
The US Presidential Election of 2016 is a anomaly that is for sure.   At the same time, it exploits a commentary about what is hidden in our society when it comes to men and women equality.  I've never written per se about a gender specific issue before.  However, now that is so increasingly being pronounced in this US Presidential Election seemingly to be more about genders than anything, I decided to speak up and based on whether this blog is shared, speak out.  

For hardly can it be anything but about gender is profound.  Let's look at the difference, as a reflection of what our societ…

A mom's brag book of her #A+mazing millennial children

None of my kids read any of my blogs
so it is pretty near 100% guaranteed that it is true.  However, my one daughter told me that at least one of her friends reads this blog Out of the 6 or 7 blogs that I curate and/or I write about varying topics that interest me or developed or furthering knowledge on something that grabs me.

Having grown up conversations with a daughter is a new and wonderful experience.  How far we've both grown from a nervous wreck of a mother, tasked with an ailing son who needed additional care and attention while she was a bright shining star, oozing with talent from every pore.  

A mother's gift is sometimes recognizing the gift in her children.  Why else would Elvis Presley's mom have been the subject of his first recording?  A miracle talent nurtured and encouraged by a mother's love.  There are far too few examples shared in the world these days.
