Tools of the Trade – are they Necessary?

One artist began decorating boxes with original art to mail to family and friends. The recipients were so delighted that a light bulb went off in his head. He began designing boxes with creative designs to sell on the Internet. He currently has a successful business simply by starting where he was, and making do with what he had.
 J. K. Rowling wrote “Harry Potter” on napkins at work before she became published; at which time, she had the money to buy the proper supplies. Many artists use recycled objects and materials to recreate beautiful one-of-a-kind keepsakes that turn into sales.
Beginners and upstart entrepreneurs often improvise and get by until they are established. We can’t always buy the things we want or think we need before taking the plunge into fulfilling our dreams. Have you heard the expression “grasping at straws?” Those “straws” just might provide the vehicle you need for “lift off.”

Disney Dreams Come True


When I was visiting Japan some years ago, I didn’t forget to visit Tokyo Disneyland too. Should you want to get another dream in visiting Disneyland Paris, you can read the following information I have quoted below.

Some trips I take for fashion, some for love. Somewhere in the sky aboard the Flying Carpet ride as monsoon rain struck last Saturday night at Disneyland Paris, only love - or maybe the thoughtful family-pack of emergency white rain ponchos (obviously left behind in our hotel room in favour of a cherished Balenciaga wool overcoat which will definitely never be the same again) - could save the day.
With seven sugar-high kids in tow (all I needed was a Snow White costume and I could have provided bonus photo ops for unsuspecting tourists), I somewhat begrudgingly replied to my best friends' teasing messages as they swanned around Le Meurice in Paris between art and cocktails. But one glance at the rosy-cheeked beaming smiles all around me and I knew this was the trip we'd remember forever.

A very different candyfloss and rollercoaster-fuelled Paris, but it's not every day you get to dine with Mickey and the gang as fireworks explode around the biggest Christmas tree the kids will ever see. As my little girl, who "hates" princesses, but wants to "marry" Pluto announced philosophically: "Mummy, these are the best days of our lives in the whole world ever," and that was before we hit the gift shop...

The Benefits of Multi-Author Blogs

A few days ago my senior blogger tutor Brian Gardner sent me again an email about important tutorial on blogging that I have quoted below.

When most people decide to start a blog, they write all of the content themselves – it’s their site, and they invest all the time and effort into making it work. While single-author content sites can become very successful, there are many benefits to the multi-author approach. A prefect example of this is our blog over at Copyblogger. What started out as a single-author blog created by Brian Clark years ago, is now a thriving multi-author content marketing blog. Here are 5 of those benefits that you may want to consider as you plan and execute on your future as a digital publisher …
1. Free Thyself
As a single content producer, it can be difficult to keep your site fresh with frequent, high-quality posts and content. If you have multiple writers, you can populate your site with more good content, instead of having to write everything yourself. Of course, the quality of content counts infinitely more than the quantity of content, especially if you want your blog to continue to be an authority in your particular community online. Make sure all of your authors are able to produce well-written, quality articles, and that standards don’t fall by the wayside just because you’re struggling to manage multiple authors.
Takeaway: A multi-author blog can produce content more frequently, freeing you up to work on other important tasks such as editorial focus, social distribution, product development, and building crucial relationships in your niche.
2. Gather Intelligence With multiple authors, you’re likely to have many differences of opinion and varied viewpoints within your “writer’s room”. This can be an invaluable asset to a content site, as it allows the reader to experience the topic in different ways depending on which author they’re reading. Allowing different viewpoints can also help a reader expand their knowledge of the topic, which can lend itself to interesting editorial discussions and further blog post ideas.
Takeaway: While keeping very clear editorial standards among all authors, allowing them to showcase their own unique viewpoint on your subject matter makes for a far more interesting and comprehensive site overall.
3. Attract Traffic
If you’re the only author of your site, you are solely responsible for marketing and promoting it. As anyone who’s attempted to create a successful content site knows, these things take time and effort, especially when you also need to focus on posting frequent, quality content. When working with multiple authors, the work can be shared among the group instead of it always falling to just one person. It’s also likely that your authors will want to publicize their work for your blog, so they’re going to help with distribution by linking to their posts on their social networking pages. This will — of course — help draw more traffic to your blog, as you’re not the only one doing all the marketing and promotion.
Takeaway: Don’t be afraid to encourage your authors to market the blog; it’s a win-win-win. You get more distribution, your authors get their names out there, and your audience gets a great read.
4. Engage the Network We all know how important networking is when it comes to making your site a success. With multi-author blogging, you are opening yourself up to even further networking opportunities by interacting with other bloggers who share the same interests and goals as you do. Take the time to get to know your multiple authors, including their skills, interests and work experience. Read their sites and engage with their audience. Help your guest writers achieve their goals. You never know when you’ll receive a valuable referral because one of your authors knew you were experienced in a topic and passed a potential job opportunity your way.
Takeaway: Take advantage of the networking opportunities multi-author blogging presents, and don’t hesitate to refer jobs to your other bloggers as well when they are a good fit. As they say, what goes around, comes around.
5. Share and Share Alike With a multi-author blog, the workload can be shared among all of the writers, leaving you with a easier workload and more time to focus on other projects. Instead of being responsible for everything — from posting content, to monitoring comments to marketing your blog — you can share those responsibilities between all involved in the success of your site.
Takeaway: A multi-author site instantly creates a division of labor that becomes one of the greatest benefits of the five. Take the time to think about the strengths of your other writers, and how those strengths can be used to create a successful blog that benefits everyone.
The Conclusion
There are many benefits to having a multi-author blog, but the 5 mentioned here are some of the more compelling reasons you should consider going down that path. Not only will your workload be divided among multiple bloggers, but you’ll open yourself up to amazing networking opportunities, more and better content, increased traffic, and multiple viewpoints for a dynamic, interesting site that people will want to read and talk about.

Anthurium Plants

Photobucket

Foliage Anthuriums are mostly found at specialty greenhouses or through online nurseries. To grow them, it's best to replicate conditions found in tropical zones. Keep them in very high humidity and warmth, and provide a climbing support if necessary.
Anthurium plants require bright, indirect light. Do not expose to direct sunlight, except in the winter. Keep compost moist at all times, but not drenched. The flowering varieties suffer if the temperatures drop below 60ยบ Fahrenheit. The foliage types prefer it even warmer.
The are two groups of anthurium grown in greenhouses: flowering varieties and those with magnificent foliage. The only ones you're likely to see in the garden center are the flowering varieties with their multicolored spathes and red or yellow tail-like flower spikes. But if you are intrepid, you might come across a few of the large-leaved, deeply veined foliage types.
Be warned: neither type of anthurium is particularly well-suited for most houses. Native to tropical rainforests throughout Central and South America, many anthuriums are climbers and all need very high humidity and warmth to thrive.

iPad mini

You can now get the smallest possible iPad that could still deliver the full iPad experience. iPad mini is 23 percent thinner, 53 percent lighter, and fits in one hand — yet it can do everything an iPad can do.
Since iPad is all about the display, that’s where people want it to be small, but not too small. It had to be big enough to do all the things you love to do on iPad. And it had to work with all the apps made for iPad. The perfect size: 7.9 inches. Because at that size, it feels like an iPad in every way — only it’s mini.
But iPad mini isn’t just a scaled-down iPad. Its design is made to be a concentration, rather than a reduction, of the original. A refined unibody consolidates more parts into one. A single-cell battery — the thinnest ever made by Apple — takes up less space, but lasts just as long. The iSight camera is smaller, yet still takes 5 megapixel photos and shoots full 1080p HD video. And while the display is slimmer and lighter, it’s also incredibly vibrant.
