This video from the USA says about itself:

5 People Are Shot At Site Of Black Lives Matter Protest in Minneapolis

24 November 2015

Police were hunting three white suspects early Tuesday after five people were shot near a protest in Minneapolis over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. All five victims were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries after the incident late Monday, the Minneapolis Police Department said in a statement.

The shooting happened around a block away from the Minneapolis Police Department 4th Precinct, where Black Lives Matter demonstrators and local activists have camped for more than a week after 24-year-old Jamar Clark was shot dead by a police officer during a scuffle on November 15.

That was then. And today …

Grow Your Traffic with Keyword Research

The Daily Post

Ranking well for the right search terms can mean the difference between hundreds of visits per month, and relative search-engine obscurity.

If you’re a dedicated blogger, you’ve probably spent hours thinking about future post topics. Even on a casual personal blog, it’s easy to lose yourself in figuring out what to write about next (hint: check out our Daily Prompts!).

Even after you’ve whittled down your ideas into a solid list of potential posts, you still need to think about how readers who share your interests will find you in search engines.

Let’s Talk About… Geeks in Glasses — Addaltmode

Do you wear glasses? I do, and so does AddAltModeB. But then of course we do, we’re geeks, right? And it is a truth universally acknowledged that geeks wear glasses. Just how firmly that particular stereotype is grounded in truth is open to debate, but there’s no doubt at all of the extent to which […]

Reblog: Periodic Table of Storytelling — Getting the Hang of Thursdays

I love learning about writing. I love how there’s “theory” for creative processes. Makes me laugh when it all gets winnowed down to a base formula. That said, the TV Trope website is great for looking up things which have been done to death as well as learning new phrases for old ideas. Here, a designer […]

Say what? — My Dog Ate a Lightbulb

I hadn’t realized how long it’s been since I’ve lived in the US midwest until I watched an interview on TV last week. A woman in Chicago was talking about the buying power of $2.00 in the late 18th century as opposed to 2016. “Back then, you could feed a family with two dollars,” […]

Why I’m Here: Re-Introduction to the blogging community

I originally started a blog, as an outlet. As a way to express myself with the freedom to be able to voice my opinion. This was a novelty growing up. I also wanted to be able to explore the various fictional worlds I lived, and see who else shared my interest. In a small town, my friends would share a couple at most of my interests.

I want to review. I love reviewing. Delving into the minutia of a fictional world and find my meaning, even if said meaning differed from someone else’s. I love to see what others do when they look at the same thing as me. I love books, movies and TV shows, and as a nerd, if I could capitalize on my near-obsession with certain ones and make a living of that, or become the published author that I also want to be, then that would be a dream come true.

I think that the true reason for my various social media accounts, and this blog was for attention. I’ve spent most of my life feeling invisible, and part of that was deliberate. It was necessary. But I don’t live in fear of monsters anymore, and I feel like anytime I want to step into the sunlight, I get shoved back into the shadows. I want to know that I’m being noticed, that someone sees me. That my voice is heard, and get the confirmation that it matters. Then again, this could become a double edged sword, and my being notice might not work out in my favor.

But living in fear of what could happen as an existence I don’t want to endure anymore. Human beings are evolved to survive, but survival means nothing if there is nothing beyond that. Then it is only a matter of: to be or not to be. And the answer to that question is one we can only hope to answer for ourselves.
