Why I don’t believe in Millennial Marketing

Today I wanted to take a little break and tried to install a PC Game from 1994. It’s about a private investigator named Tex Murphy. I recently discovered the 2014 episode of the Tex Murphy series, Tesla Effect, and was intrigued by it. Drawn into the story. So much so that I purchased the other installments from the 90ties. Oh my god, such a mess on my computer. From the number of recent discussions, I could see that many people look for these old games. Well, they didn’t run and I use the break to write this down for you. The quote “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks”… Read More

The Myth of Personal Branding

The myth of personal branding is told often these days. You have to be a brand. “I can help you to build your personal brand!”, says nearly everyone. There are social media sites that can help you become a brand, tools, methods – I’m sure if I do a search on Amazon, I’ll find a personal brand building protein-bar.

The surprising danger of being a blogger

  The surprising danger of being a blogger? Blogging sounds like a pretty safe job to me. Marian was a frustrated insurance agent when she discovered blogging back in 2011. At first, it was a side-hustle. But as the number of viewers grew, so did her confidence. She felt proud of what she had achieved. In 2013, she quit her insurance job with a big smile on her face, a feeling of excitement in her tummy and went full time. She still remembers that day. It was a cold September day and raining outside but a ray of positivity was warming her from the inside. Marian was never happier and… Read More

Google Blogger vs WordPress

: I posted an update at the end of this article. As you know … I use Google Blogger for all of my blogs. This article is written from the standpoint of a (proudly) untechnical person. When asked in the past why I use Google I told everyone: “I am of the opinion that WordPress has way, way more features, and possibilities. But everyone I know who uses it has constant trouble and spends a lot of time on fixing issues. Google can do less but what it can do it does without problems. Also, I never need to fear changes of Googles’ extensive book of rules. With a Google… Read More

Complaining about LinkedIn – An Opinion

Complaining on social media Today I disconnected from a friend. Or better: acquaintance because I would have shared my concern with a friend. Currently, there is a steady stream of complainer posts on my LinkedIn feed. Some pronounce LinkedIn dead while others just need to vent. Complainer posts generate lots of interaction. Just like bikini photos, political posts, and cute cats. The purpose of this article is not to complain about complainers. That would be an oxymoron, right? Why complain when I am blessed with a healthy index finger capable of blocking tons of complainers at the speed of light? I feel that what I am about to say applies to… Read More
