Information at What Price? Exploring fee-based e-content


Information at What Price? Exploring fee-based e-content

In pursuit of a paid model for content, many businesses offer newsletters for a fee or ebooks. These models offer pros and cons. Some organizations send out two newsletters: fee and free. The free version has the basic, watered-down contents found in the fee version to entice readers into wanting more and paying for it. But is it worth the time and energy to do this?

Ebooks are also a way for businesses to make money. But do they sell when it’s been proven that people prefer reading printed copy to electronic text? Read on to hear from several experts in the field about what people are willing to pay for and whether or not offering fee-based content is right for your organization.

Too much information!

Considering there are so many free newsletters and information out there, why should readers shell out the dough for these premium newsletters? Reading online is harder on the eyes because of the light emitted from the monitor. People overcome this by printing out the newsletter.

I can’t hazard a guess on how many free newsletters are out there. So why would a person pay for a fee-based newsletter? Jenna Glatzer, editor-in-chief of AbsoluteWrite.com, says, “You have to offer something different and better than what the free newsletters are doing. Personally, I wouldn’t pay for newsletters that are just for entertainment, but I do have paid subscriptions to a handful of newsletters that are specific to my line of work and appropriate for my level (not beginner). A paid newsletter that has all the same sorts of free-reprint articles that all the other sites have won’t work. You must find a corner of the market that no one has claimed yet and be the most reliable source of information on it.”

Joan Stewart, publisher of The Publicity Hound, started her subscription newsletter seven years ago, long before there was as much information on the Internet as there is today. She says, “Content must be king. If you can supply good content that can’t be found elsewhere, and it’s well-written and easy to read, and leads readers in other directions where they can find even more info than they could possibly need, you will keep your customers happy.

“If I had it to do over again, I would have never started my subscription newsletter. It started as an 8-page print newsletter, but the postage and printing costs were killing me,” she says. “About two years ago, I reverted from a print newsletter to a PDF document. It’s in the same format, but it’s now emailed to customers. My free ezine, The Publicity Hound’s Tips of the Week, is still far more profitable, several hundredfold, than the subscription newsletter.”

Charging for ebooks

Considering there are no printing and paper costs to the publisher for ebooks, how can they charge as much as they do for them? Higher prices equal higher perceived value. However, I’ve seen many ebooks cost more than a paperback, and the content isn’t always better quality than print. Yet, they sell.

What justifies the higher cost of ebooks when there are no printing costs involved with them? Christopher Knight, publisher of Ezine-Tips, says, “What justifies the higher cost of ebooks when there are no printing costs involved with them? Christopher Knight, publisher of Ezine-Tips, says, ‘That would be a fallacy in perception logic because the printing cost is not relevant to the market perception of a paperback versus an ebook. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that some people even value an ebook as higher value than a paperback because they can take their data with them on a personal notebook computer, whereas it’s hard to travel with a pile of paperback books.'”

Glatzer points out that whether a piece is written in print or ebook format, it is the same amount of work for the writer. “Of course, ebooks have a smaller market, so the problem is that if the ebook is priced very low, it won’t be worth it for the writer to spend the time writing and promoting the book.”

If it is worth it, however, ebooks provide many benefits to those who download them: The readers aren’t taxed, don’t incur shipping costs and don’t need gas money to go to the bookstore. As soon as people buy your ebook, they instantly download it and have it in their “e-hands.”

Stewart says, “The biggest justification is that the information is immediate. If a customer wants information NOW, they can get it NOW, and they’re often willing to pay the hefty price. My ebook, How to Be a Kick-Butt Publicity Hound, sells for $97. The most I could expect to get for the same book in hardcover is about $25. Another justification for the higher priced ebooks is that live links in the ebooks take visitors directly to Web sites with related content.”

E-format versus print format

Research on ebooks indicates people still prefer paper over ebooks. What’s the point of pursuing ebooks and fee-based newsletters? Glatzer shares her experience.

“I’ve written two ebooks and 14 print books, so that shows you where my bread and butter comes from. However, I had my newsletter first. It was thriving, yet I had nothing to sell my readers. I was barely breaking even with advertising costs and often paying hosting fees out of pocket. I’d received so many letters from readers asking for advice about how to do what I had done — make a living writing for magazines — and finally decided to write a book about it. I knew I had a built-in audience among my subscribers. The ebook sold well, but my goal was to take it to print. When a publisher made an offer on it, I took it out of circulation as an e-book and expanded it for the print publisher. That became Make a Real Living as a Freelance Writer, and the print book has far outsold the ebook.

“The second was a niche book for greeting card writers and artists. It contained market info for just that field, so it was such a specialized book that I didn’t go after conventional publishers for it. Plus, the time factor was crucial: contact info changes so often that I wanted to get the book out ASAP, and I wanted to be able to update it when needed. I briefly had it out as a print-on-demand book, but I took it off the market as soon as it became dated and just continued selling it as an ebook.

“Since then, I’ve stuck to conventional publishing and just a few giveaway ebooks for publicity. But I think the market for ebooks is decent if you have a specialized topic and a built-in audience.”

Based on Glatzer’s experience, when you have a free newsletter, you already have an audience … unless you try to sell a book on home makeovers to your audience that subscribes to your pets newsletter!

Timely matters

Ebooks have an advantage over print in that their content is up-to-date and piping hot. If something changes, it’s quick and easy to modify the ebook and put the new version up for sale. The publishing process for printed books can be a lengthy one.

Time can impact content depending on the topic. Some industries such as sports and history have experienced little or no change in over a decade, while others like technology are moving at megahertz speed.

By the time an author of a book related to software writes it, and the publisher prints it, a new version of the software is available, rendering the brand-new book outdated. However, many users don’t upgrade every version, as this stings the cash flow. Often, tips and steps given in books covering earlier versions of software are applicable to the newer version.

Knight suggests selling in both formats (print and ebook); that way all your bases are covered and you reach more channels for the same product.

eContent = lower quality?

M.J. Rose, Wired columnist and author of both print and electronic books, has commented that people thought she wasn’t a real author when she published her ebook. For some, ebooks are “bottom-feeders” in the world of publishing. They see such content as lower quality and without prestige.

I have a folder of all the books I’ve collected through reviewer duties and as free downloads. I haven’t read 10 percent of them. However, it could be a different story when you pay for an ebook. Knowing that you bought the book might force you to read it. But then again, I have shelves of printed books that I have yet to read.

Why would I want to buy ebooks and let them rot on my hard drive where I naturally save them after downloading them? Same reason for printed books? I don’t think so, because you can see and touch them. It’s easier to scan printed pages than to scroll electronic books.

Fee-based newsletters

Most of the fee-based newsletters I’ve seen have a free newsletter distributed by the same people. Organizations use the free newsletter to entice readers into subscribing to the fee-based newsletter. Like Glatzer says, you’re establishing credibility with your audience through the free newsletter, and when they see another offering from you, they might jump at it. Glatzer publishes Absolute Write, free Absolute Markets and Absolute Markets Premium Edition newsletters. Free Absolute Markets comes out every other week and the premium edition comes out in between those issues.

Glatzer explains the difference between the free and premium editions. The free markets contains a small sampling, about 10 markets covering mainly magazine-related work plus contest listings or an article in alternating issues. The premium edition has many jobs and lists markets for various types of writing including international markets. It also includes interviews with magazine editors and an in-depth look at a high profile magazine on a monthly basis. She also lists calls for writers from editors who know her and those calls won’t be found anywhere else online.

Glatzer decided to offer the fee-based newsletter because there wasn’t anything like the Absolute Markets Premium Edition with its 50 pages of markets. She believed that a $15 fee for a yearly subscription more than pays itself if writers land one assignment from the newsletter’s resources. Furthermore, it saves the writers’ time spent searching for job listings. In determining what to charge, Glatzer and her colleagues researched what publishers charged for similar newsletters in other fields such as casting calls for actors.

In determining how much to charge for her fee-based newsletter, Stewart asked herself, “How much would I be willing to pay?” The Publicity Hound, her eight-paged, bi-monthly, fee-based subscription newsletter costs $9 per issue or $49.95 for a one-year subscription (six issues) and has more single-copy buyers than subscribers.

Selling ebooks and fee-based newsletters

If you decide to sell ebooks and newsletters for a fee, Glatzer recommends getting lots of reviews and interviews for ebooks. For newsletters, she says, “I think you need to establish credibility by offering free samples first. Make it easy for people to subscribe by offering multiple payment options.”

Joan Stewart promotes articles in the fee-based newsletter in almost every issue of the free ezine. She also uses auto responder messages for people who buy single copies. About a week after the purchase, they receive a message thanking them for their order and asking if they would like to subscribe. Stewart shares her list of what works and what doesn’t work when selling ebooks and fee-based newsletters:

What works:

  • The product must be content-rich.
  • It must include lots of links to other resources.
  • Even if it includes hotlinks to other products, it must cover topics that readers would be interested in.
  • The product must be top-quality, which means free of typos, and it must be easy to read. (16-point type for ebooks.)

What doesn’t work:

  • Information that’s outdated. Special reports and ebooks must be updated at least once a year. I have a special report called “Fly High with Publicity in In-flight Magazines.” It includes contact info for 30 in-flight magazines. It’s a real pain to update this annually, but readers will jump down my throat if I don’t.
  • Products that are little more than sales pitches for other things the author sells (consulting services, etc.).
  • Products that don’t promise what they deliver.
  • Lousy customer service. Buyers expect a human being to reply to their email messages or answer the phone if they have problems downloading the product, or other concerns. I have bought ebooks from some well-known Internet marketers who refuse to return my phone calls when I call them for help. I no longer buy from those people.

Steer clear of joining discussion groups solely for spamming the list about your ebook or newsletters. “It irritates the heck out of people,” Glatzer says.

She promotes her fee-based newsletter through advertising in other writing-related ezines and some paid Google ads; she also advertises it in her own free newsletters, and she sponsors writing contests and conferences in exchange for newsletter mentions. Glatzer says, “We do a lot of promotion for the site and all newsletters in general; people subscribe to our free newsletters for a while, so they can determine we’re worth the bucks!”

Fee-based newsletters are out there and won’t go away soon. Authors churn out ebooks every day in spite of data supporting that people heavily prefer print over electronic versions. Ebooks prices continue to equal or surpass printed books.

Knight ends the discussion. “The best will survive and rise to the top as they always naturally do, while those who don’t step up to the plate and innovate like mad will get left in the digital dust.” Amen.

Advanced Military Technology In The Martial Arts


Advanced Military Technology In The Martial Arts

Martialarm Martial Arts System
Martialarm Martial Arts Kung Fu is a total control system incorporating scientific body weapons with unconditional workability in both attacks and defense. Formula Fighting allows a pre-emptive attack and defense – a much faster system of fighting than the conventional ‘reaction response’ defenses. Formula fighting correctly applied transcends current martial arts technology to evolve into a martial science so to set new standards.
# The system includes:
# Smart error concepts and selective targeting
# Pressure points and internal shock strikes
# Multi-functional and military applications
# Broken Rhythm or plyometric applications
# Chi-Sau and automatic reflex systems
# Stealth weapons and clasifications
# One arm combat strategies
# Fire and forget formulas
# Inertia breaking
# Delivery zones
# and more
Martial Arts Modern Warfare
Chinese combat methods especially are renowned for the wide variety of their hand techniques. Most Kung-Fu styles use a wider range of hand/arm weapons (such as claws, gouges, palms, backhands, punches, backfists, hammerfists, forearm, elbows and shoulder strikes) than their Japanese, Okinawan and Korean counter­parts.
In addition to the actual number of natural body weapons used there is also a tremendous range of different applic­ations due to the regionalised develop­ment of Kung Fu styles and the different approaches taken by hard or internal/external styles.
In this analogy, the legs are used as the body’s heavy artillery, while the hands are the body’s infantry. In a military en­counter, it is common to use first satelite technology to view the opponents attack and defense cababilities and then use long distance stealth artillery to soften up the enemy and to provide a moving cover behind which the infantry can advance to seize and hold disputed territory. Without the benefit of the artill­ery, the infantry would take heavy casual­ties.
However, artillery on its own cannot seize and hold territory – a major bom­bardment may drive the enemy out. So it is with arm and leg techniques – we often use our legs to soften up the opponent and to enable us to bridge the gap until we can close in and finish the fight with hand/arm techniques and the proper use and co-ordination of hand/arm and leg techniques is often crucial to success/ survival.
We espouse a combina­tion approach which uses hand/leg attacks from different angles of attack and at various target levels. The concept is to keep a flow of offensive techniques moving into an opponent’s target zones from different angles and at different levels, in order to disorientate him/her completely. We believe that this approach is superior tac­tically to reliance upon one or two heavily committed techniques.
Martialarm Scientific Training For Speed
#1. Beginning of action
a. You must start in a positive delivery zone otherwise a negative zone can either injure your body parts or work against the intended action and become counter productive. (Newtons 1st law of motion)
b. Create an inertia breaker, a movement that will help you overcome the inertia (resistence to motion due to gravity and friction).
#2. Middle of action (Newtons 2nd Law)
a. After the inertia breaker you must continue the acceleration with a Booster. (Like a booster rocket, an extra aid, a second stager)
b. All body parts eg arms and legs, in any move be it a punch, block or kick, must always end up in a bent elbow or knee movement to enable a very quick change in any direction at any time.
#3. End of action
NOTE: ‘End’ of action should not be taken literally as one should never really stop action until the job is done. Our ‘end action’ should be programmed to an interuppted continuity as if this stage is still the middle stage.
Martialarm Martial Developement of Power
Most Chinese styles use a relaxed approach to power development. We try to keep unnecessary muscles from being involved in the technique, in order to avoid inhibiting the prime movers behind a certain technique from doing their job. Essentially, a straight punch is a triceps-driven technique and the Chinese style of punching allows the triceps to do its job without the inhibition of significant biceps involvement in this punch.
Most other techniques can be viewed in a similar fashion – you have muscles which are vital to the effective execution of a technique and muscles which are not, or which are even counter-productive when involved in that technique. No matter which martial arts style you do, try to avoid unnecessary muscle involvement.
Many Chinese styles use more “follow-through” in their techniques and achieve their power by driving the entire body weight through a target zone at speed. The arm is totally relaxed until contact is made and the body is still driv­ing deeper into the target when focus is brought to the technique using a trigger.
The body has more inertia to overcome before it can move with the descending line of force and, as a result, the power is more completely absorbed by the body­rather than being partially dissipated by the body moving more freely with the punch, as with a horizontal line of force.
Martialarm Martial Arts Weapons
The Martialarm System uses quite a large array of natural body weapons, some of them fairly specialised. The main ones are:
• Fist Strikes. (Sun Fist, Dragon Head, Phoenix Eye and Leopard Paw)
• Palm Strikes. (Tile Shattering, Yin/Yang, Wil­low Leaf and Hurricane Palm).
• Finger Strikes. (Flying Fingers, Immortal Pointing the Way, Twin Dragons, Tiger Claw, Eagle Claw, Dragon Claw, Rat Claw and Crab Claw).
• Back Fist Strike. (These tend to be follow­through rather than the ‘snap’ versions).
• Bottom Fist Strike. (Iron Hammer equates to the Japanese tettsui technique).
• Forearm Strikes. (This is used for smashing, sweeping blows of great power).
• Elbow Strikes. (This is generally used in a very flexible manner using multiple strikes).
• Shoulder Strikes. (Used for close-in work, of­ten to propel an opponent out into punch­ing range).
As you can see, there is an emphasis on tightly targetted use of a specialised hand formation in many cases. It is not enough merely to lash out in the hopes of an effective strike. In a ring situation, the “when in doubt, lash out” tactic may gain you points, but in the street it will be ineffective, unless you are lucky enough to impact on a vital point. A precise, surgi­cal strike or kick into one of your opponent’s vital or weak targets is needed and your combinations should be struc­tured with this in mind.
Martialarm System Technological Achievements
1. Revolutionised Martial Arts thinking and design of “Formula Fighting” or “Martial Arts by Numbers” that allows pre-emptive attack – a much faster system than the conventional “Reactionary Response” to attack.
2. Development and pioneered Martial Science – a system which enables practitioner of all styles to evaluate and modify current technologies to improve efficiency and allow comparisons with proof of technologies, concepts and technologies.
3. Developed the following technologies –
a. Sightless combat
b. Smart weapons systems
c. Stealth weapons systems
d. Fire-and-forget systems
e. Broken rhythm energy
f. Plyometrics applications
g. U.F.O. motions
h. Counter error programs
i. Convert errors into attack
j. Selective automatic targetting
The Three Cs – Capability – Control – Confidence
Certainty in containing the opponent by a huge technological edge and a super tough body and mind.
1. Capabilities – Current martial arts technologies have been transcended by total control in that it is a martial science based on failproof concepts.
2. Control – Allows total control of the opponents capabilities making him defensively impotent. Multi functional applications in everyday life as well as in self defense.
3. Confidence – The small, the unco-ordinated, the disabled and also the best and brightest will gain in self belief through this training.
Martialarm Martial Science Offers
Attack systems that cant be blocked. A shield that cant be breached. Body toughening, Formula fighting, Stealth and U.F.O weapons including the Nukes. Mind freeze technology that shuts the opponent down. 3Cs Capabilities and Control bring about Confidence.
Martialarm Martial Science Concepts
1. Traditional Martial Arts – Animal styles or based on kata and ritualised.
2. Acclectic Martial Arts – Collection of what works for the individual into a new style.
3. Designer Martial Arts – Only the usable of conscious mind, scientific and repeatable.
The Martialarm Combat Training Partner
In a martial arts career you can occationally find your self with no school to go to or no one to train with and so out of neccessity the martialarm solo training partner was born. The Martialarm is a Martial Arts training machine used to develop the entry and trapping skills of any martial arts system. It is designed to actually test any techniques so to improve the ability to trap and control your opponents hands and arms. This can be done because the Martialarm moves and reacts like a real opponent. The Martialarm moves and twists up, down, left and right just like a real opponent would – so it can spring forward and it does strike back!.

What does Bibliography mean? Webster’s Dictionary describes it as the history, identification, or description of writings or publications. It can be anything E-book, journals, Comics etc.

Making a Bibliography might look very simple but it requires a great attention to minute details. It will become a bad publicity to your book in case it is not made first time right.

How To Turn Any Product You Sell In To Residual Income


How To Turn Any Product You Sell In To Residual Income

The concept of this is for you to offer a subscription type product as an upsell or backend product. For example, if you’re selling an ebook for $37 offer a subscription to a related e-zine for $9.95 a month. Instead of an e-zine, it could be monthly updated information for the ebook.
It’s not just for e-books, you can make it work for any product or service you sell. Some subscriptions that might work for your product could be:
e-mail/telephone consulting
a private or members only web site
print newsletters/magazines
product updates
subscription warrantees
product insurance
the ideas are endless…..
The subscription product should be related to the product or service you’re selling. You could charge a weekly, monthly, or yearly subscription for the upsell product. You could sell your main product and upsell product as a total subscription package deal. You wouldn’t charge the one-time price for your main product; you would just charge the basic subscription price of the upsell product.
The major benefits are that you don’t have to keep creating new upsell and back end products. Once you get enough subscribers you won’t have to sell anymore, you just keep generating income from your current subscribers. You would only have to sell again if you lost a lot of subscribers.

Finding Appin Knowledge Solutions

I call entrepreneurship “The art of taking risk”. That is how I started it. Being from Computer Science department, IIT Delhi people always expected me to go for a M.S. in U.S.A. But things turned down to be different as I was always looking for a different track. I wanted to be a top entrepreneur.
I began with the mind of a computer scientist and thought of lots of ideas and imagination that they will be converted into a million dollar business soon. But entrepreneurship was quite different than Computer Science. Lols. My journey started by reading books from my gurus Robert Kiyosaki, Anthony Robbins. I joined various yahoogroups for getting in touch with entrepreneurial people, the best one being spiritofentrepreneurship. I never knew it would change my life. I started with a business plan of a distance learning business. Unfortunately we could not materialize the business plan. The next came XirsVentures Inc. which was cofounded by IIT alumni. I worked with them in setting up things initially. I also worked with them as an analyst and worked on bidding projects via Elance. Xirs Ventures is a global company with offices in U.S.A, India and Australia.At the same time I came in touch with Maninder who is founder of the website 123oye . We worked on certain plans for 123oye. Some of them materialized while others didn’t. But with his perseverance I was sure he will make this a very good website for information on jobs and career. I was still in thirst of more. And lots of ideas came to my mind and then came the concept of training students to bridge the gap. Six people sat together, brainstormed and founded “Xirs Appin”. The concept has changed many folds now and so have lots of things. The name of the company became “Appin Knowledge Solutions” (www.appinonline.com) once we incorporated it. We are a nation-wide company now that offers extensive workshops, training programmes and seminars that transforms people’s life in technology areas and personal development. It is a long way we have moved from a time when I remember we had Rs 5k in bank account and no brand name. We have presence in India and U.S.A and very soon we will be expanding to Philippines. Our sole aim is to provide training programmes and workshops that transform the education in the world. For more details you can visit www.appinonline.com.
There are few very important things about entrepreneurship that came out of this journey. I will list out few of them
Entrepreneurship is all about taking the first step and implementing them.
Take Risks, evaluate and learn.
One of the most important part in evaluating a business idea is its scalability.
Focus on developing assets for the company. i.e. – Think long term.
Provide quality products and services to the customer.
Learn to use internet. It will transform your business

Past Life Regression-Self-Hypnosis Continuum


Past Life Regression-Self-Hypnosis Continuum

How nice it will be if you have a complete guide to uncover your past or previous lives, that’s one thing I know. There are about 75% of our populations who now believe in the truth about reincarnation. Reincarnation is a very intriguing yet captivating subject matter especially to those people who have had their own shares of experiences to tell.

Reincarnating to another Person

Can you really ever believe in reincarnating to another person when you draw your last breath? Well, while some people may believe this magical and mysterious event is really true, there are some who also believe otherwise. Reincarnation is believed to have happened when you know in your very own mind that the particular events you are experiencing right now have actually already happened in the past, or have been there with you before. Surely, these life-experiencing events have been so life-changing for them.

Some Believe in Reincarnation, Some Still Do Not

Sometimes, we tend to have recurring dreams in our sleep at night. And while some are attracted to this way of discovery, thereby firmly believing in reincarnation, there are still others who refuse to believe and follow. Most of the time, those who are inclined to believe are the sufferers, those who suffer in having recurrent dreams and the revelations of which, enable her to change her life in a more positive and ideal way!

Past Life Regression, a Spiritual Technique

Truly, past life regression is not just an ordinary event in a person’s life. Past life regression is a spiritual technique to help people empower their own lives, conquer their own fears, and fight their own struggles. Past life regression caters to people who are in dire need of having to learn the various ways of coming across their fears and finding out how best they can reveal or discover their past lives. And even for therapists and psychologists who are there to help the sufferers, this guide will help them achieve their goals and plans for their lives.

Examples of Problems that Require Past Life Regression

There are some patients who find it so difficult to understand certain events in their lives that they would rather undergo hypnosis to better understand themselves. There are some instances that would make a patient regress to an earlier existence like she was at one time, burned as she was thought of as a witch, considering her many non-conforming ideas and beliefs.

Hypnosis Sessions

During the actual session of hypnosis, patients could develop ridges or swelling on her neck as well as her upper chest as the patient recollects the precise events as to how she died or got to her demise. There are also follow-up sessions which are revealing that the patient was better off expressing herself. The patient was led to an understanding that overcoming her problem with blushing should be her top priority.

Complete Guide to Past Life Regression

Hiking Or Taking A Cruise: Find Out What Is Best For You With These Tips


Hiking Or Taking A Cruise: Find Out What Is Best For You With These Tips

Although intended to be a leisurely and relaxing activity, travel can sometimes be unnecessarily stressful and fraught with disaster. A vacation can turn into a nightmare if you conduct your trip without the proper planning. To make the most of your travel plans in the future, read through the tips below.

When you are going to be on the road for a long period of time, it is best to bring a trash bag for the car. During your travels, trash can build up from people eating, drinking, and doing activities in the car. It is best to have a place to put your trash instead of letting it gather on the floor of your car.

If you know you are going to be travelling, purchase tickets for your flight at least two months before your dates of travel. The closer to a departure date that you buy, the more expensive the tickets will be. Waiting to purchase tickets close to a flight will only cost you more money.

A great tip if you’re traveling abroad is to let your host down easy when they offer you some type of food that you don’t want to try. An easy way to do this is to simply tell them that you’re allergic. They’ll accept that and be fine with it.

Buy travel insurance for your vacation package. You never know when something can happen! If someone was to get ill or injured, and you had to cancel your plans, you would be out all of the money you have invested into it without the purchase of travel insurance.

A good traveling tip is to make sure you take sleep aids at an appropriate time. If you take a sleep aid too soon, you could miss an important announcement. You might also be in the way of your fellow passengers so you should always be aware of how taking a sleep aid can affect you and others.

Research and prepare for any communications costs that you might have, in regards to computing while traveling. Knowing where you will have access to Wi-Fi and what equipment you will need to connect at your various destinations, will make your journey easier and avoid on the fly purchases when you need to communicate.

Use a GPS system or online maps to plan your auto trip in order to save time and/or money. These tools can help you plan your route in accordance with your preferences. If it is important to arrive as quickly as possible, you can find the shortest route. If you prefer to save money on tolls and do not mind driving a little longer, these tools can help with that as well.

While travel is intended to be fun and relaxing, it can also become very tiresome if you do not know the tricks to make your trip smoother. With the above tips, you will be able to put your new knowledge to use and make your next traveling experience easy and pleasurable.

What is great about painting landscapes is that you don’t have to worry about your inspiration getting up and walking away. You don’t have to ask for it to pose for you, because it already does so naturally. Some can shoot a scene with a camera and then use that to paint the picture. This doesn’t work for everyone, but it works great when you don’t have time to sit down in the middle of a field to see what is in front of you as you work. This can also help when you want to capture something that might change, and we all know lighting can change swiftly.

What is great about painting landscapes is that you don’t have to have a lot of artistic talent to do it. You do have to have some, but there are many techniques that you can learn if you take lessons from someone. Obviously talent is not something you can learn, but anyone can do a passable job painting landscapes if they really want to give it a go. There are times when we just feel like trying something new, and this can be a great thing to try. You may not keep it up as a hobby, but you will have fun trying it out and seeing what you can do with a paint brush.

Look around your area for art lessons if you think painting landscapes is something you want to do. You can find someone in each community, and probably more than one. You may find courses at your local college that won’t cost very much, or you can find some instructions on painting landscapes if you look around online. You will have to buy supplies if you take this up as a hobby, but you will find things to be more affordable than you probably think. It’s a great way to express yourself to the let some of the stress of the week go away. You may be surprised to see what you can do.

The Letter – Review


The Letter – Review

As a writer, I think The Letter must have been a very interesting challenge for author Roxanna Russell. This work of fiction is actually a collection of 14 short stories – each revolving around some kind of letter; the Suicide Note, the Closure Letter, Love Letter, Fan Letter and so on. Yet the book is also a novel, in that each chapter is centered on a particular family and each chapter ties into the next.

The three main characters are Mark, his wife, Carol and his son Jack. Mark and Carol meet in dire circumstances, fall in love and raise children who grow into adults with lives of their own. Each major life altering moment is accentuated with an accompanying letter written by someone in the family.

The author’s humor, love and appreciation of people in her live are apparent within the first few pages of The Letter. She brings up issues so subtly that you hardly know they are there. For instance, is it wrong for Jan to sell herself to save her father? I think not. The Letter reinforces that intent is what weighing the rights and wrongs of life decisions really boils down to.

It was both a pleasure and an honor to read The Letter.
