The Business of Freelancing, Blogging, and Books, According to Author Jennifer Armstrong


Originally posted on WordPress.com News:

First, I should note: I am not related to Jennifer Armstrong. But! I have followed her writing closely over the years — first during her years at Entertainment Weekly, and more recently as the author of books like Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted (Simon & Schuster), which offered a definitive history of the classic TV series. Her blog also happens to be a must-follow on WordPress.com: She gives glimpses into her current work (she’s doing a Seinfeld book next) and she’s refreshingly transparent about the business (and hard truths) of being a freelance writer in 2015. I spoke with her via email about the business of writing and tips for how she makes time for her own blog.

Why I’m boycotting boycotting (and why I don’t care if you do or don’t).


Originally posted on Hippie Cahier:

Judging by one of Twitter’s trending hashtags this morning, today we’re boycotting Indiana.  I regret to inform you that my understanding of the underlying issue is intentionally uninformed. While I am sure I should care deeply and passionately, and it is my duty to whomever is offended by whatever it is that Indiana lawmakers have done, I have my own struggles to deal with: winter weight gain, inter-season wardrobe problems, a social engagement that I’d completely forgotten about.

Things are tough. Needless to say, I’m maxed out on righteous indignation. So, I’m just going to go with the understanding that Indiana is on Twitter’s bad side this morning — and btw, India, you’re on Twitter’s less literate bad side (I saw #BoycottIndia and — I am sorry — laughed out loud).

I can tell you that  I vow not to visit Indiana today, or for that matter India. In the interest…

Plenty of opportunities here for those photos of fish, diving, sharks coral and all things associated with reefs.  This picture has been taken from a plane of the   reef off the coast of Zanzibar.

As most of you know, but for the newbies once a week I dip into my old English Oxford dictionary and pick a word on the page that it falls open at.  The challenge is to post a photograph you like best to describe what that word means to you. Please put a link back to my challenge post in your post so others can follow the thread and take part and also put your post link in my challenge post comments section so people can follow it back to your blog, see your take on the subject and peruse your blog.  Good luck.

Egypt in the 1900s was a different place. Egyptian cinema was the third largest in the world, Cairo was a city that foreigners dreamt of spending their holidays exploring, Egyptian music flourished and shook the world, Jews, Muslims and Christians lived together as neighbours, and women had freedoms that were unheard of in many other countries.

Egypt was a place of liberal spirits, unhampered by sectarian and ethnic prejudices. The rights of men, women and children were championed.

Yet, all that has changed, and often may Egyptians forget the Egypt that used to be. Here are 23 photographs of vintage advertisements and other images that will teleport you to Egypt’s ‘golden years’ and show you an Egypt you may have forgotten ever existed.

We don’t want sympathy; we want humanity

I now have some understanding on the pricing, and it’s much better news. The surgery itself will NOT cost £45,000 – £45,000 is the amount we have been asked to come up with, just in case there are any complications. The surgery itself will be £30,000 with £15,000 set aside just in case, so I’ve amended the fundraising amount to £30,000, meaning we’re much closer to our goal! We can do this :)
