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.

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.

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…

Mindfulness mindset

Mindfulness mindset

The following post was originally shared on  JMgallery where I curate art, photography, images that speak to me.  Today, these depictions focus on mindfulness which is an art within itself.  The above captures my positive mindset and peaceful focus to allow me to become present in the NOW.  To be appreciative of the WOW!  Yes the quote and the image harmoniously flowed together to create a positive vibe sent out to the universe.  I can't do anything constructive about my woes at the moment so you allow it to drift away.  Efficiently filed to be handled effectively, like you usually do.  

The art of mindfulness
Practicing the art of mindfulness is a lot harder than it sounds.  In principle, you are meant to focus on this minute, this second.  Building awareness of all things, people, events happening around you in the moment for the moment.  Discipline and meditation are definitely helpful to reach this art of being at peace with oneself in the universe.  Forgivin…
