Good morning readers/browsers,
It"s been quite awhile since I have written a new article or diary entry, though I have been adding reviews and will be adding one today.
The reality is that I have been quite busy for the past few months, mostly with putting together a proposal for my own wine label and what not. It"s something that I am setting out to do, and hopefully it will happen sooner than later. I am giving myself one year to set up the whole thing, but with the right moves and what not, I can get it started within a couple of months. My plan is to raise about 250K and it can come in the form of minimum investments of $100 and average investments of $250. When it happens, it"s one of those things that will also focus on strategic partnerships with the arts -- both visual and performance, to also include film & video -- and areas such as fashion, tourism, and merchandising.
Outside of that, I finally converted my first book into an ebook and launched that. I have to also release it on Amazon as well, and then put out a press release. This of course will be followed by doing it for the second and third books. Most interestingly is that I also have a first draft of a fourth book which I never released which can be part of the marketing campaign with the wine label.
I also have been dealing with some reflux (gastrointestinal) and it took a minute to get that straightened out. It was what they call "silent reflux." And since it was happening for so long, I don"t expect it to go away overnight.
I also had to deal with an asshole client, but in the end it might be a blessing, as it might just open up another revenue stream for me.
So, I am now back more and today I will spend some time recoding part of the site and in the next two weeks, I should have recoded the back-end to the site; this would be the engine which powers the reviews.
