Give nature back to nature

It is 2015 and we are concerned for our environment. That is.. we with a above minimum conscience. I choose to believe, that means almost all of us. The awareness is growing every day, across the globe, more and more people, cultures, nations, see and feel the consequences of decade long, of century long exploits, systematic negligence and downright destruction….read more>>

What lurks in the human mind…

… sometimes can surprise us, shock us and deceive us. What lurks in the human mind can change the life of a family, of a society, of nations, it can even change the entire world. What lurks in the human mind has a limitless capacity for good, regrettably also a ditto limitless capacity for bad. The latest appalling example of this limitless…read more>>

“Safe renewal”, if you see it be wary

For a long time I’ve bought domain names, sometimes on a whim, just in case the name could have some form of business potential .. at one point. Truth is, rarely, well for me personally. A few friends and customers on the other hand might be happy for my creativity with regards to names, and concepts/design. Anyhow, been using for a long time. When I first…read more>>

Social media for marketing

Like everyone else I get promotional mails, sales and marketing stuff in my inbox. The majority of these mails auto-magically ends up in the trash, labelled as spam. Thank heavens for improved spam filtering! Some mails I might hastily and/or accidentally scan through, even happens I read some.

What a wonderful world …

… isn’t just a clichè or … maybe it is, certainly quickly can be just that… a clichè. We know all too well that dark, stark, heavy, depressing realities pounds on our doors every day, doors here meant in a non-literal, symbolic term. For some the pounding might be stronger. If and when life & realities lead to sense of…read more>>

When you feel a creative flow…

… it’s sometimes best to let things come and not try to control… too much. Allow the energy of momentary inspiration to take the drivers seat. It’s good to have a plan, but with regards to art and art forms sometimes desire for a plan can disrupt currents, disrupt creativity even before you got started. For a while now I’ve wanted…read more>>

Running shoes, too many choices

I am not an fitness extremist, not by a long shot. If you’re in the 50 something, or older, having exercising routines is a good idea. In fact, it is a VERY good idea. Yet, do too much too sporadically, and that is not a good approach. Routines, however dreadful and boring it might sound, is what you need. Else you might end up doing a…read more>>

WordPress & lay-out: less is more

Web design and content presentation trends have changed a lot over the past 10-20 years. Long gone is tolerance for, and patience with, 100+ lines paragraphs, cluttered pages, word and function density beyond sensible measures. With better tools and platforms previous layout and presentation methods have gotten their renaissance. Use of large fonts, lots of air on the page…read more>>

Spring is on, spring is here

.. and that is a true blessing for those of us living up north, especially those who are tired of darkness, of short days, snow, icy and slippery roads, freezing feet, gusts of icy cold winds literally blowing from all directions. Good news; spring is coming very early this year. Bad news; spring is coming very early this…read more>>
