I’ve been using (attention hackers) Google Drive lately, to upload my photos and videos from my phone, then later downloading them to my PC. I’m still not thoroughly comfortable with putting things I’m not ready to share with the world, into cyberspace like that.
I’ve known about Bluetooth for a while…I use it every day at work, but since my home laptop doesn’t have a receiver, I resorted to cloud storage.
Today, I bought a Bluetooth receiver very cheap (shoutout to Amazon), and I’ll be installing it tomorrow.
Hey everyone, I’m doing a big campaign push for my author page on Amazon.com!
To everyone who bought copies, thank you so much! To everyone who shared, thank you as well!
Selling is hard, especially with no experience in advertising. I discovered much later in the game that a targeted audience, and/or keywords are essential to a successful marketing campaign.
Before the advent of the internet, the admen (and women) had to be on their toes with a flashy or captive advertising campaign…and hope it worked better than the competition. I think my first attempts at advertising resembled that.
I’m going with AdWords this time around because I know that not everyone is on Facebook or Twitter. I’m experimenting with various (but relevant) keywords in my ad…as I didn’t do on Facebook ads.
I can say that my name, in itself, is getting out there…this blog has been seen in well over fifty countries that I know of! That in itself is huge to me, and I appreciate the audience!
Back to my advertising, my target audiences are the United States and Japan, and if I have all my dogs in a row…maybe I’ll sell a few this time. Amazon, who sell my books, has sites in several countries…and you can find my books on any Amazon site. Just type “R.B.Bailey Jr” in the search box. Thank you in advance!
I gotta keep at it…so if you see me in front of your local train station or wherever, just take a flier and say hi.
With the trouble and lack of privacy Facebook has served its millions of dedicated users, many are ready to wash their hands of the social networking platform (might as well go ahead and delete messenger and WhatsApp as well).
But, how do you go about that? How do you erase yourself from Facebook?
You can do it the hard way, and start deleting EVERYTHING (photos, posts, etc) manually, one by one…but depending how long you have been on the app, could take a while. Or a week, month, etc.
Follow step one, and download your data beforehand.
With the recent news of Facebook leaking personal data to Cambridge Analytics, people should become more aware of what they could unintentionally share to the world (at a nice profit to many), and take steps to protect it.
There are tons of software that can do the job of hiding, and/or wiping your data from your PC, tablet or phone, perhaps making it safe. There is free software available, such as Avast! or Clean Master, but has limited options, compared to purchased or subscribed versions. In addition to having this software, the best practice is to learn to wipe your personal data from your machine yourself as frequently as possible.
Who says you can’t go home again? Went back to the word processor that started it all for me…WORD 2002. Been using a combination of both it and Open Office for years, but I hesitantly re-installed WORD again this afternoon, because I was having trouble working with some images on a new coloring page.
Open Office has a complete suite of productivity software (Open Office Writer, Open Office Calc, Open Office Impress among others)…but still can’t quite get the hang of just Writer. It takes a while to get used to the different language and layout of Open Office if you’ve been using Microsoft Office for awhile, but I would recommend Open Office to anyone looking for a great, free productivity suite.
I will say it does have a nice “convert to PDF” feature that I really like and will continue to use.
One of the cons for WORD 2002, is that Microsoft stopped supporting it many moon shapes ago…so, I’m stuck in 2002 again.
