Ghost Writer

BOO!

You may well wonder with the number of ‘ghost-written’ blogs being presented. You know, ghost-writers? People who will, for a fee, write an article on any subject for another person to take credit for. Ghost writer.

There’s nothing wrong with this, per se, sometimes we go on vacation or are hospitalised and we don’t want our readers to be aware of our ‘disappearance’, so we hire a writer to bring a subject to life and dazzle our readers; the difficulty I have in this, is it’s not being honest.

Our readers think we are brilliant (do so!); they have come to enjoy our take on life not just to read for reading’s sake! (Or, at least I HOPE that’s how you come to read my stuff…) I’m not speaking of guest bloggers, those are awesome and bring a different outlook, (usually); a refreshing view, if you will. No, I’m speaking of those who, with a little manipulation and understanding of algorithms and ‘key-words’ pay writers to come up with original content to wow or impress their readers, only it’s not THEM who is/are doing the impressing.

It’s cheating, and I’m not a fan. I read blogs because I want to hear other opinions and get new ideas, not to get ‘high ranked words’. I like to hear a ‘voice’ come through, and having ghost-writers avoids the personality and just spits out regurgitated mumbo-jumbo.

Oh, most of those blogs are interesting, sort of, but they’re usually flat, because the ghost-writer has no ‘stake’ in the content. The fees paid, typically don’t equate to a high-level of intellectual involvement, just a quick jotting of words; and often times don’t ‘sound’ like what we’ve come to expect. (Although, with a few blogs being totally ghost-written, one may never become aware of this.)

I have recently taken on a few of these assignments, to ghost-write blogs for those without the time or ideas to fill their daily requirement and I must say they are a rude lot!

They demand a certain length for a paltry fee, and let you know that it will be unacceptable if it comes in at this length. They actually want it longer, but aren’t willing to cough up extra pennies to pay for the work.

They also are cagey about requesting the use of ‘key’ words. This is when you are aware you are writing for a client who is a taker. Someone who has figured the system out well enough to earn an income off of people simply clicking ad buttons on their blog that only reflects the top 100 ‘key’ words, although, the content might be great.

Again, it’s not that I’m against people benefitting from a flawed system, (how do I jump onboard?) it’s that I despise someone taking credit for something they haven’t done! Or, maybe I hate the fact that we can be duped so easily. (I say we; even though I am guilty of writing some articles, I still don’t know for WHOM I wrote them…)

So WHY do I (and other good writers) do it?

The money. I need the extra income due to some interesting developments in my personal life. (Nope still married, sorry dudes…lol). Others may want a vacation and sales give them disposable income; others may find expenses mounting and need the income; or an unexpected bill (my case). I’m not knocking the practise; just …why not admit: Written by… For…; would it be so wrong?

So, enjoy well written blogs but don’t despair over not being as ‘perfect’ or as ‘awesome’ as some – chances are it’s a community effort…

Me? I’ll keep writing whatever pays, (yup, willing to prostitute my writing – I like writing too much not to), I’ll just remember what I read may not be what the blogger actually wrote…

Now to look at these reviews and see which products I’m going to pretend I’ve used and write a glowing, or scathing, report for…

One of those moments where you KNOW it’s not really a funny topic, but, really? Did they HAVE to put that sentence in there?

Please understand fully, I do NOT condone DUID… and feel that those caught should pay the consequences. So, read the article for further enlightenment, and/or, enjoy my out-of-context ‘giggle’…

Skilled Drugged Driving Attorney… meet your partner…

Sorry, but this line:

“Those facing charges for DUID can benefit greatly by having a skilled drugged driving attorney to represent them.” Excerpted from Drug-Crime Law’s article.

Makes me giggle! Read the entire article referred to here: Drug-Crime Law.

A “skilled drugged driving attorney”… I KNOW what they mean, and actually say, but put in commas and stuff and you can see where I’m going with this… well, unless you are the “skilled, drugged-driving attorney”; you may have difficulty seeing…

Don’t get me wrong, I disagree with driving while under the influence of anything – especially kids! (Sorry…). I also applaud the efforts of those who work hard at their profession. Lawyers have a tough job.

2013… yep, starts right off with a bang. BOOM!  

AFTER fireworks… and for those who don’t know, my birthday falls on New Years Day… (I’m so lucky, eh?) So I get a double whammy! (No Whammy; No Whammy; No Whammy; STOP!…lol… that’s for those who’ll get it… lol)

I survived turning {mumble-mumble} and the earth turning 2013… my computer however decided ten years was enough of my mishandling and abuse. It broke. Normally, if something breaks we fix it or toss it. (Or practise our foul-language shouting at it…) and, usually, when things break I just move on, if I don’t have a replacement no big deal. WELL, let me inform you, this is NOT the case this time!

I have become addicted to my computer! I had withdrawal symptoms… (You know, where you sleep-walk to your computer and fire it up, typing away on it even though NOTHING is actually working…*grin*)

It’s true though, I feel lost if I can’t write daily. (I might not post what I write… but believe me at least two-five thousand words leave these fingers daily… (English teachers hated me) or DID until my ‘puter broke…)

Then, just for good measure, our internet and phone lines went dead… oh, joy… that took a WEEK for the phone company to discover the issues and FINALLY send someone qualified to repair them! (It’s a big deal to us; we operate a business and our debit machine was affected costing us big-bucks all week…) My only worry was I was missing reading the blogs! Forgive me…

Anyway… I apologise for being absent. It’s going to take me a week to figure out all the safety measures etc… in this new electronic beast. (But, PTL, yet again! My son used to sell computers so he was invaluable at choosing the ‘right’ one! Who knew a stint at a box store would result in expertise of a useful kind?!)

A HUGE HUGE THANK YOU (& CONGRATULATIONS) to Shazza for her gracious blessing offering me a nod as a nominee for “A Very Inspiring Blogger”, I’m very humbled and hope only that what I write gives you, precious reader, what you want, need or came for… I will be following the rules very soon… *hugs*

So, I will be in and out as I discover things about WINDOWS 8; which ain’t easy!!! I feel like I’ve been sent back to kindergarten and I’m the one without the paste! So, please, a prayer will be gratefully coveted; that I might not get frustrated. I have a personal unspoken prayer I’d like prayer for as well, but don’t worry if that’s not your thing… but if it is… *thank you…*

OH OH OH!!!! I FINISHED THE NOVEL THAT MY COMPUTER ATE!!!! PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD PRAISE GOD!!!!! Now, back to the beta for a confirm it’s still somewhere near as good as the first time round! The computer crash/breaking DID NOT affect the completion! PTL!!! Oh, can you tell, I’m PDH!!!!!

I’d like to share my play list from YouTube… it’s a real MIX of styles, and stuff… it’s NOT for everyone, I listen to it… well, I made it (about two years ago? one year? six months? lol) but I couldn’t listen to it at the same time as I did anything else… (ten-year-old computer, ‘member? (okay, so I discovered it was only 6-years old, it just acted 10!)) It’s really kewl, I can now! I’m typing and listening to it play. (Wow, is it eclectic!) I have seen some of these bands in person… really incredible to sit with tens-of-thousands… *shiver* ONE of them, if you listen REALLY REALLY REALLY carefully, you MAY hear my completely off-key voice belting it out with the artist(s)… *smile* I also dare ya not to jump up and start dancin’… even if it’s only ‘bum-dancin’ (where yer butt stays on the chair but the rest of ya is wriggling… *giggle* ENJOY!)

Of course it does make it hard to get any work done…well, except for housework; can’t sit still anyway…

Enjoy (If I link correctly…)

PlayListOneUnDun  I‘m looking forward to adding new ones from a new blogger I am now following (I hope; if I did things right…ack!) (Yeah, the music is older than dirt, but it is better than what we got!)

On those notes… *grin*… I will be here again! God IS my witness!

(PLEASE FORGIVE ME…AGAIN WORDPRESS IS ALLOWING ME TO POST…I HOPE… BUT NOT TO READ OR COMMENT… HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!

What is it about Christmas that you hold dear?

Is it the anticipation? Of what? Gifts? Food? Fellowship? Family? The ‘feeling’? Church services? Reaching out to others in need? Snow?

Or, maybe what you hold dear is the decorating? Putting your normal treasures away and hauling out boxes, bags and crates (possibly calling an 18-wheeler in?) Making positive the lights line up straight along the roof line? Keeping the tree in perfect symmetry and the angel straight? The train chugging round the tracks and the villagers off the floor?

Or the preparation of the treats that we only seem to bring out at Christmas, and secretly are glad; that’s what keeps them special.

Christmas traditions abound.

In one family they observe gifts Christmas Eve so they can truly focus on the Christmas meaning and not on ‘what’s in that big box with my name on it?’ (In fact, I bet lots of families do this.)

In another they open one gift Christmas Eve, to ‘quell’ the frenzy their kids are in. (I bet lots of families do this too…)

Some don’t open gifts. Not because they are poor or don’t celebrate, but rather because they choose one large family gift, a trip; a game; a computer.

Others try to break the bank filling the tree to the top with gifts that take all day to open, and everyone wonders what they received after ward.

Some spend their time serving food to the less fortunate at community kitchens or halls, for personal reasons; pious reasons or because their friends dragged them along.

To some Christmas is a painful event, tied to misery, heartache, loneliness, and they’d rather it would just go away.

To some Christmas is a Holiday Season, and they eagerly absorb all the traditions from the various events. Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice. (A following list, garnered from Wikipedia; but by no means complete, of various events celebrated in December around the globe or by various different peoples and groups.) 

  • Four Sundays prior to December 25: Advent
  • Kislev (November/December) 25: Hanukkah

  • December 21: Saturnalia: the Roman winter solstice festival
  • December 21-25: Pancha Ganapati
  • December 24: Christmas Eve
  • December 25: Dies Natalis Solis Invicti (Day of the birth of the Unconquered Sun)
  • December 25: Christmas

  • December 26: Saint Stephen’s Day
  • December 27: Saint John the Evangelist’s Day
  • December 28: Holy Innocents’ Day
  • December 31: Saint Sylvester’s Day

  • December 31 – before dawn January 1: Hogmanay – Scottish New Year’s Eve
  • January 1: New Year’s Day
  • January 1: Saint Basil’s Day
  • January 5: Twelfth Night/Epiphany Eve
  • January 6: Epiphany
  • January 6: Armenian Apostolic Christmas

To some, Christmas isn’t about the one day in December, nor about the few weeks devoted to the decoration and songs. To some Christmas is a feeling they hold out all year long. Which, hope and love and compassion being those feelings; I tend to think these people have figured it out!

To me Christmas is about the day we set aside to worship THE ONE who makes Christmas possible at all. It’s not a ‘festive season’. It’s not a ‘holiday season’. It is a birthday. And should be the biggest birthday party ever celebrated. (Even if we aren’t celebrating on Jesus’ ACTUAL birthday)

I hear you. “But what if I’m (You fill in the blank)?” So? None of the other ‘celebrations’ EXISTED before ‘Christmas’, so, you should at the very least give a ‘nod’ to that which sparked your celebration. (I am voicing my opinion, I know… I tend to do that, in case you didn’t notice…)

Don’t get me wrong… I celebrate with Christmas lights, decorations, food (oh BOY! do I celebrate with food!), family (those in driving distance), friends (ditto), small gifts (we try for home made, not to be ‘perfect’, but to save money!), a Christmas Carol with Alistair Sims; and the only colourized version to be worthwhile, the version with George C. Scott. We shovel snow (if we can find any), we sing Christmas carols and drink the proverbial hot chocolate, (the adults get the adult-version).

We attend Church services on Christmas Eve and a shortened service on Christmas Day, where we (and I suspect a lot of other congregations) sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and partake of a large birthday cake! (To ease clean up, everyone supplies their own fork and cup for coffee/tea/hot chocolate, the non-adult version…)

But Christmas is what YOU make of it. If it stresses you out; why do you continue to celebrate in that environment? Why not change some traditions? Just remember, it’s called CHRISTmas for a reason…

Tomorrow (or soon): Change those traditions! Or not…

*hugs*

Where do you seek God in the midst of a horrific, senseless tragedy?

Where was He? Didn’t He see this unstable gunman? Didn’t He anticipate his evil thoughts? Why didn’t He step in and stop this?

How can a loving God allow innocent children and adults to become the pawns in some sick person’s mind?

Sadly, a loving God allows such tragedies for His own purposes.

Many of us are crying; never having set foot in the state, county or school. We never knew these children, or their families. We never will. Our hearts still break with disbelief, shock and horror. Our tears still flood our cheeks as if everyone of those children were ours. We cry for the families and wish there was something concrete we could do for them. We wonder about our own kids and, yes, some of us have headed to our children’s schools to pull them out for the day, the week; forever!

We fear the sicko’s in this world.

There is NOTHING that will bring peace or comfort to these families. Nor the response team who has had to go through the school collecting bodies and confirming there are no more dangers lurking, ready to leap out and create panic and chaos as things are starting to settle down.

What will ease the pain, and bring some comfort is prayer. Our prayers, offered to God on behalf of those too close to have any coherent thoughts right now.

Belief in God, that, somehow He is watching and understands the pain and heartache of losing their child. He has been there. His child also suffered an unfair death. He understands. Trust in His plans; somehow, somewhere, these children’s deaths shall serve a greater purpose.

Right now, as humans we don’t care! We want our kids back.

That pain, too, shall ease. We DO care.

We just don’t want someone telling us that, “It’s okay. God has a plan.”

That will only serve to drive those teetering on the edge away. They will not seek God’s comfort and strength to guide them through this senselessness. They need Him.

Don’t ride in all sanctimonious. Crawl in; offer tissue; offer your shoulder; offer your prayers; OFFER yourself, and LISTEN. Just listen. Let their tears, their heartache, their anger bubble up and flow out. Don’t tell them it’s wrong or that time will heal their sorrow. Later, when they’re ready, God will speak with them. He will wait, and so should we.

Just offer love and LISTEN.

To the families; friends, coworkers, fellow-students, teachers and staff, and response teams I offer up a prayer. That God will hold them, comfort and protect from retribution or copy-cat killers. I pray that, although this Christmas is ruined for all involved or touched by this, I pray they will not continue to hate Christmas and it will become a centre of joy for them. For the deceased I pray God is watching over their souls. I pray the adults and those old enough to have made a decision for the Lord, have done so and they now reside comfortably in His arms. I pray this tragedy will remind us of the precariousness of life and how fleeting time is. Please, Lord, comfort those in the midst of this event. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

*hugs*

luv khrys…

Then I have Peter Maloney… hmmm…? my baloney (bologna) has a first name…
Who is SURE I am interested in hearing of the demise of Mr. Walker.
 

LETTER #2:

Hello, 

My name is Peter Maloney, I am the personal lawyer of Mr. Neal Walker, an American businessman who lost his life in a plane crash on October 31, 1999. He deposited $30 Million with a bank here in the UK which nobody has claimed since. All attempts to locate any of his relatives have been unsuccessful. I and an insider with the bank have decided to look for a reliable person who is ready and willing to help claim this fund, hence this e-mail.

The plan now is for you to stand in as his relation to get this funds released to you, because the bank has just given a deadline after which the money will be declared dormant in accordance with the bank’s policy.

In return for your help, you will receive thirty percent(30%) of the total sum.

Write me back if you’re ready to work with us on this project.

Best Regards,
Peter Maloney.

A multi-millionaire who lost his life in 1999 and they can find NO ONE who wants to claim the 30-million he deposited in the UK? If I HELP him, (a bank insider and Mr. Walker’s PERSONAL & TRUSTED LAWYER???) run his SCAM I’ll get 30%…WOOHOO! That’s a lot of money! He is looking for a RELIABLE (criminal) person… and wants ME to play the (illegal) part of ‘long-lost-relative’…? I suppose looking amongst his close friends would have turned up less than reliable persons? Gotta wonder where he practises law. (Or, maybe, that’s the problem; he only PRACTISES…)(Excuse me while I giggle maniacally…) I have decided that in the interests of my side, (which aches from laughter), NOT to write him back; I am not interested in this collaborative project. (However, sign me up for the World Wide Exclusive first-run all languages movie/book rights! Heck, include the Inner and Outer Galaxy rights too! LOL) 

Then I have Mrs. Lerien Namani from Cyprus. I feel badly that her husband has passed, leaving her no children. It really annoys me though, when people use God’s word to LURE the unsuspecting into a trap. 

Proverbs 16:27

A scoundrel plots evil,
and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.

 

LETTER #3:

Dearest in the Lord, 

PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD. 

I am Mrs Lerien Namani from Cyprus . I am married to Mr Marthins Namani who worked with Cyprus embassy in cote Ivoire for nine years before he died in the year 2004.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. 

Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of (4.Million U.S. Dollars) in a fixed suspense account with one of the Bank here in Cote Ivoire presently, this money is still with the Bank so I want you to take quick step to this transfer process with the bank to transfer the money to you because, recently, my Doctor told methat I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Throughwhat disturbs me most is my stroke i Having known my condition I decided todonate this fund to church or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. 

I want a church that will use this to fund churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that give the. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. 

I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank here in Ivory Cote Ivoire Abidjan . 

Hoping to hearing from you 

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord. 

Yours in Christ.
Mrs Lerien Namani 

I know I received this particular ‘invitation’ because I receive our church’s e-mails as the bulletin editor, therefore this ‘letter’ was not addressed to me personally, but to our congregation as a whole. God warns us to be wary and watch for inconsistencies. Even Satan quoted the Bible when it suited his purpose.

Matthew 4:1-10

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”

Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendour. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

Mrs Lerien Namani shall need to seek other players for her game, and the contact of the Bank there in Ivory Cote Ivoire Abidjan will have to wait a little longer to distribute those funds.

The last, for today…*grin*, is a notice to the ‘Online Operator’ of an ‘ACH’ (?????) (account?) has been temporarily disabled. Just click the OBVIOUSLY REAL link and it will take you to…? Good question. (I have disabled the link by altering the address.) But what I REALLY love about this ‘warning’? The salutation: “Best regards, Security Department”.
Not only DON’T they know WHO the account is held by, they don’t have a simple contact to, well, contact. I still have no idea what or who ACH is 

LETTER #4:

Dear Online Account Operator,
Your ACH transactions have been

Gotta love PHISHERS of men… (Somehow, I truly DOUBT this is what GOD had in mind when He called…) 

MATTHEW 4:18-22

As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.

Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.

Understand, I am passing this on as a service/warning/edification purposes; for those who find these types of e-mails in their inbox and feel:

  • the need to help these ‘poor’ individuals – Proverbs 16: 33 – The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
  • the need to respond, informing these ‘poor individuals’ they have reached the wrong person – 1 Cor. 12:4-11 – There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.To one there is given through the Spirit the message of wisdom, to another the message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,and to still another the interpretation of tongues.All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. (IE: leave it to the professionals.)
  • the greed that, maybe, just maybe, it’s real. (IT AIN’T AND AIN’T NEVER GONNA BE) Proverbs 16:19 – Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed; than to share plunder with the proud.
  • the fear that someone HAS gotten hold of their financial details and without thinking, rush forward clicking links and filling in information until, yup, now the criminal DOES have your banking information… JOB 3:25 – What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.

Sorry to lump people together in a tidy box, (cause we all know were unique, just like everybody else…) but it is the elderly; the lonely; the bullied; the lost, who fall prey to these scams. WE need to watch out for them, be that angel-on-the-shoulder keeping our friends and family and greater community from falling for these plots to relieve them of what God has given them.

Please Father God, watch over the waywardness of the great tool called the internet. Help to protect Your children and guide us away from evil. Remind us to pray before clicking on links that are suspicious without making us fearful and doubtful of everything. (Proverbs 3:6 – in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.) Keep us free from the sticky threads in the web and lead us to the narrow path safely. Remind us to check in on friends and family we haven’t heard from in a while, and to make time to stop by the widow’s on the corner to see if she needs anything while were out. Or if we can just bother her for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chance to put our feet up and find out how her great-great grandchildren are. Let us be bold and speak out against evil, that we and others may learn to recognise it and run from it. Blessed be the name of The Lord! I ask in Jesus name. Amen.
