In a time when more people are creating more content and news travel fast I’m a bit perplexed by the rise of magazine pay walls. It’s not that I don’t understand publishers need to increase revenue, it’s just that I don’t see what news outlet would make me get out my Visa. My normal reaction to a paywall is “too bad, that would have been a nice article to read”, and that is also the extent of of it. On the other hand I probably…Continue Reading “Paywalls or content critics”

I realized yesterday that I’m paralyzed! Utterly and completely paralyzed. Why? Because of TIME!

And seconds later I read @AnnLjungbergs writing exercise “Write about a bad habit” – you both tweeted me on the nose with this one! 😀 So, my bad habit is the “read later” add-on in Firefox! I LOVE reading, and with twitter, blog etc…Continue Reading “Oh no, you twound my bad habit!”

This blogpost was additionally written in my former blog dollysdoings.blogspot.com, but since WordPress IS all the rage I felt compelled to switch… A few years back I started following a great woman’s daily newsletter. She’s a book publisher that also holds author writing classes. On top of that, for free, she gave away small tips and challenges to anyone wanting to participate. I found this woman, Ann Ljungberg, through a swedish social network called Shortcut. At the time I studied project management and only had…Continue Reading “To be convinced”
