My Insights, so far, into Marketing for Christians

Despite what everyone in the marketing scene seems to teach, for the Christian (me), self-promotion doesn’t work! It feels uncomfortable and wrong, and I believe that it causes loss of credibility. As well, it cheapens my authenticity as a trustworthy person and the value of what I have to offer by trying to point people …

A Personal Recommendation in order to Increase our Word Treasury

In my English class for ESL students (English as a Second Language), I often use the word “literacy”, not only regarding reading and writing but also regarding subjects such as “health literacy”; i.e. how knowledgeable we are in accessing appropriate health-related  services and awareness of patient rights (very much on my heart, especially since studying …

As a past (in my case Christian) leader, I very much believe in team building. From personal experience and observation, I have found that a key ingredient in great team building is GOOD AND CONSISTENT COMMUNICATION.

What I hadn’t understood about Http and Https websites. An important difference!

I just spent an afternoon to finally do some information gathering about website “management”, for lack of a better word! I am a writer, not an IT nerd, so all the nitty gritty “must know and do’s” about managing a personal website are utterly daunting to me! Every now and then I “stumble” over one …

FIRE AND FURY, THE BOOK. PERSONAL REFLECTIONS

While the world gloats over the latest vicious Trump attack by Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury”, whose contents he presently reinforces through numerous world-wide television appearances, apart from the questionable truthfulness of its contents, I ask myself the question: WHAT DRIVES THE MAN? As I skim through the sparce sources available on this question, …
