Another Day Another $0.0000001

The biggest frustration about web publishing with the hope of making money is really understanding you are not omnipotent.

Yet, I am still determined to do it all myself. Mainly because I want to do it all my way. Secondly, because I can't pay anyone to help me. Thirdly, I don't have the prestige to get "interns" to work for free.

Today I have the plan to work on an editorial calendar. (I found something new to try via WordPress and if it works I will post it to WordGrrls).  Offline, I am sorting clothes and deciding what to keep based on the space left in my closet now that it also contains almost everything else I own. Something has to go, might as well start with clothing.

The Wonders of the Human Body Over 50

I sprained my ankle. I spent the day at home, I didn't do anything more than sit at my desk, writing and making dinner, etc. Nothing strenuous and no accidents. At some point I noticed my foot was sore. After spending time playing cards with my Mom I had to gimp around because my ankle was severely unhappy every time my foot moved. So, how did I possibly sprain my ankle, doing nothing? It is very weird.

I bought a tensor bandage. Amazing how much harder it was to wrap that around my own foot now that I'm not 20-something. But, I got it done. That helped, the bandage I mean. There is no help for being over 50 and a long way from skinny.

Today is day three. It only hurts when I try to move my ankle. My Mother gave me one of her canes. I'm not getting the hang of it. Might be because I just don't want to.

Vanity goeth before the fall. All too likely to be literal in this case.

LiveJournal for Content Curation?

Semagic is working.

LiveJournal doesn't have categories for niche topics but the tags will work. I'm going to see how LJ will work for me as a hub for content curation. I've got my own sites but they don't cover everything that catches my interest. Especially as my interest tends to wander around a lot. Maybe I can move a lot of my efforts from Scoop.it to LiveJournal. Scoop.it has become more focused on business, SEO, marketing and commercialism and anything personal seems to be unwanted (in spite of what they say, or used to say).

I was trying to do the same on Blogger but there is so little support there, no new features and updates to the old. Seems Google is just waiting for Blogger to finish dying so they can close it down and not step on too many toes. But, I won't bad mouth Google, too much. They did save the old newsgroups! They still live on in Google Groups. I hope they will be well archived if ever Google stops wanting to keep them.

Live Journal is Still Here (Me too)

LiveJournal has a very nice bookmarklet but with my web browser, Chrome, bookmarklets tend to fall off the screen too soon. I'm going to try an application instead. But, it hasn't been updated since 2011. Time flies online. 

10 safety tips when photographing abandoned buildings

I wrote one like this before. Probably for HubPages. This one has more points about being prepared and bringing stuff with you. I don't really do either of those. I wear totally the wrong shoes and I only bring the map book and my camera. 

 Probably not a great example to follow.

Another Summery Day

It's been awhile since I posted here. I haven't entirely forgotten LiveJournal but I have a few other sites I'm writing for, my own and a couple for a friend. Since the advent of social media, or since social media became something more than a chatty thing, there isn't enough time to fit everything and every site in. 

Today I got reading back to my oldest posts in LiveJournal. I'd forgotten some of the people and places along the way in the past years. I liked remembering some of them. Funny how the guys I was dating who made me feel so bad at the time but now I can really only remember one of them. The only one I actually spent time with in the real world, not just online. Shows how seriously I should have taken all that offline romance. Not seriously at all or in any way. 

I'd like to say I'll post here again but the fact is that I probably won't. I notice a bookmarklet up there, seems new (or new to me). I might add it to my browser and see if I can keep this old site from falling stale again. 

Happy Summer, 

Laura

Happy New Year!
