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.

REMEMBER:  Your words are your weapon.

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.

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…

Testing ... reDEFINING

Postings on the Edge
a twist of words as reference to Postcards from the Edge.  

Kindred spirits
join the journey.  But first, you need to begin with me
firstly by watching "Bright Lights" with Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds  Take in the poignant moment when Carrie visits her dying father, Eddie Fisher, with more forgiveness than any one I've ever known.

Compassionate creatures 
enveloped from the vessels of "Singing in the Rain" fame, Debbie Reynolds, and her daughter "Princess Leia" Carrie Fisher who wrote "Postcards from the Edge" starring Shirley McClain and young upstart Merle Streep.  I watched this  this afternoon after taking the HUNKster's suggestion of HBO's "Bright Lights" last night when we returned home after sharing a hearty dinner with great friends.  

Quality overpowers time every time
Suggesting quality is not defined by length
of time spent together, but in the value and peaceful-ness with whom we share gain.  


A topic that is too judgMENTAL ::... transgenders

A question was posted on QUORA and I felt compelled to respond:

Why don't transgender people use the restrooms corresponding to their genitals to try and end the needless transgender bathroom controversy?

It is none of our business.

This reminds me of things we have to struggle with growing up::…. what IS our identity? What IS our moral standard? Should others have THE right to determine what is best for US?

Almost ALL of us in the age of inBETWEENers (born 1960 to 1965, neither Baby Boomers, Generation X, nor Millennials) must REMEMBER what the biggest questions of our day were? If others forgot, I can share with you: Do you or don’t you circumcise your newborn son?

Remember that?I do. Is it necessary or more to do with mental well being our our son: likeness to daddy. It was something I read avidly read about because sometimes reading becomes “PEACE of MIND”. In this instance, we were RESPONSIBLE for making decisions for our children.

However, this topic is a NONtopic because it is si…
