Atlantis: Fact or Fiction?

Let’s take a look at different theories on the lost continent Atlantis, and a look at “What If”, thinking outside of the box.
*
Atlantis was a great continent. Plato wrote about it as early as 360 B.C. Timaeus is one of two books that he had written, Critias his second book he was unable to complete; it is not clear to as why.
Other then these two written Manuscripts, there appears to be no other primary ancient account of Atlantis. All that write about Atlantis have had to at one time or another refer back to Plato’s manuscripts, being that they are the only recordings of such an event.
*
In the artist drawn below is the city of Atlantis. It is a very impressive likeness to that of the real Atlantis as I have seen it to be in my mind so I felt it has earned its rightful place in this my theory on Atlantis. Many have had dreams and past life experiences that point to their living in this great city. A city that appeared to have vanished beneath the sea in what some say was a great earthquake. Others say it was an explosion of tremendous force; originating from the great city’s center, that caused it to sink beneath the sea.
*
Some of the ancient philosophers viewed Atlantis as fiction including Aristotle. However, in antiquity there also many that did believe in its existence and they too were historians, geographers and philosophers.
Even some of the great thinkers of our time have theorized that Plato’s writings concerning the lost continent of Atlantis were nothing more than the work of fiction to fuel his political career.
*
However, Evidence does exist that points to the reality that such a great continent and city did indeed at one time exist. Some of the relics and ruins that lay beneath the sea point to this.
*
Another fascinating discovery discovered at the Maya ruins at Cuba, is a tablet with pictures that describe an escape from a cataclysm depicted by exploding volcanoes and collapsing temples.
*
The Maya legends state that their ancestors came from a great land in the Eastern Sea; it was destroyed by a great cataclysm and sank beneath the ocean. The Amer Indian traditions refer to this land as Azthan or Atlan and other similar names that, not-surprisingly, sound very much like Atlantis.
*
The crystal pyramids of Atlantis another interesting thought to ponder.
Could subterranean crystal pyramids power Atlantis? I believe so. We use crystals in almost everything electronic we build today, such as watches, instruments and even our computers.
Crystals are enhancer’s of energy; they store energy as well. Just think where humanity might be now if they had taken an interest in exploring the possibilities of using crystal technology instead of wasting our natural resources.
*
There are even Egyptian Hieroglyphics with ties to Atlantis. They speak of flying air ships such as these below.
*
They also tell of those that came from the sky in machines that harnessed great destructive power and referred to them as the ancient astronauts. Theories about Atlantis have often linked sightings of ancient astronauts to the Atlantean space ships.
*
Atlantis is said to have been bigger than the North America Continent and was diminished twice by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and destroyed a third time by a world War Three. This war is said, to be the direct confrontations of warring races that settled on the planet from off world destinations.
This is another interesting point to ponder in that it opens the door to many theories such as the one I bring before you the reader now. It is my strong belief that Atlantis was a physical portal through which off world races were allowed to enter.
*
 The planet has many portals scattered all over it but the main doorway to our world was Atlantis and through this passage, other alien races could emerge easily as long as it was to remain open. The remaining portals fanned out from the Great City Atlantis much like that of a spider’s web. Atlantis was the Jewel of all the portals the controlling center piece to which all other portal were connected.
*
The ancient dwellers of Atlantis realized that the ongoing warring between the off world visitors would eventually interfere with the normal development of our race. It was beginning to show early in our development as man began to incorporate the ancient technological advancements that the Atlantean and other off world dwellers had brought with them. We were as young children playing with dangerous toys that might well have destroyed us if not brought into check.
*
The image above was believed to be that of a huge light bulb constructed by the ancient Egyptians but later disputed by some other researchers claiming it to be part of a magical belief practiced by the priest of that area. I however feel it is the early development of the light bulb.
*
The portals of Atlantis would allow the travelers to fold time in onto its self, which would cause the Slip Streaming Effect. They could travel to any pre-selected place or point in time almost instantly.
The Atlantis Portal being the master key to all the doorways once destroyed would take away the easy accessibility and though most of the power source was destroyed, the other remaining doorways would open from time to time still allowing the spasmodic visitation of the other races to our world. This would also explain the random opening and closing of the remaining portals.
*
Each portal would be powered by the grid of crystal deposits buried deep beneath the earth. These grids as I call them are like strands of a spider’s web branching out from the main portal Atlantis, to encase the globe. The reason that these doorways are still active is due to the energy that is still stored and reproduced by their crystalline deposits.
*
There are many of these crystalline deposits believed to be deposited around the globe. This proves to be an interesting concept  in which each connecting line forms a triangle. Now that may be some more ”food for thought” for those of you that like thinking outside the “Box” like this writer.
*
This brings me to yet another conclusion. The master gem I call the Blue Crystal, Much like the hope diamond only much larger that was pieced together in sections. It I feel could be the brain of the crystal chambers that controlled the machine that open and closed the main portal. The Hope Diamond above as shown under an ultraviolet light is capable of storing and creating very powerful energy. The Atlantean in their great wisdom may have decided to remove and divide the huge gem into 13 segments representing the 13 tribes of man. Each tribe spread out over the planet creating its own belief system hence the saying, “All Faiths lead to one”.
I will further this explanation also by suggesting that Atlantis may not have been actually destroyed. She could be incased in a force field created by the ancient Atlantean and buried beneath the rubble that seems to be scattered over the ocean floor.
*
The electromagnetic field that may surround the inner city could not be seen by any of the tools we have at our disposal today. This is just a thought. I believe that once all the segments are collected and put in place that the Lost Continent of Atlantis, will raise again.
You be the judge.

Self Publishing Your Writings

How do we as writers get our works/creations published? This is a great question and merits some careful thought as well as consideration. Like others I as a writer have asked myself this same question on several different occasions. Do we type up our manuscripts and send them off to several different publishing companies or do we become self publishers?

There's several advantages to both methods. If an individual takes the traditional route which is going with a publishing company that has been around several years and has a proven track record, as long as your writing with in their strict guidelines you can easily succeed.

These traditional publishing companies have the know how and support to take you to the top of the publishing field. This is great as long as you fit within the guidelines publishing companies set for you as a writer. But, what happens if you as a writer don't match or fit the guidelines and decide you want to try striking out on your own?

This is where the second option kicks in and comes into effect. "Self Publishing."

Self publishing is another way to go if you as a writer do not want to be constricted to someone else guidelines. Self Publishing, allows you to be more creative as well as unrestricted, which in layman terms mean the world is your oyster or canvas. What ever you wish to write about is open and your only limits are those you put on your self.

Companies like Amazon dot com and Lulu dot com are great to work with and allow the writers the affordability to write about what ever they decide. These companies allow you to create your books,calenders and videos and to also have a store front in which to sell your products once finished.

You set your price and they tack on their cost so both the writer as well as the company makes some great money. These two companies also for a nominal fee, will edit, professionally publish as well as market them for you. They will print off any quanity requested from 1 copy to several hundred copies and drop ship them directly to your customers.

They offer several different forms of publishing from: soft cover,hard cover,electronic downloads and disc. I as a published writer find these options to be right up there at the top! I can decide how I would like my finished creations presented as well as sold.

They have step by step instructions that make it easy to follow along and self publish, as well as online help forums made up with other self publishers and writers that will help, should you have trouble along the way. This I as a writer also find very helpful.

I hope this article has been of help to those that are entering the writing field and wish at this time to say, Happy Publishing!! I will write more articles concerning this subject matter in the near future. Please leave your comments as well as suggestions? Always looking for new information as well as sites that support the up and coming writers of the future.

Anaconda


Anaconda Translated means “Water Boa” it is one of the largest snakes in the world. This huge monster snake lives in South America as well as North and East Central America. In captivity, they can live as long as 30 years. They live near water and like the swampy environment.

These are the largest snake in the world. They are very aggressive and in the picture above is the account of American explorer Ron Shores from Seminole, Oklahoma. He was attacked by the 22 foot long, 420-pound Anaconda. He was standing about 8 feet from the creek when this snake unleashed its attack upon him. He was able to keep his footing long enough for the group with him to pull him and the huge snake to shore. The groups guide wanted to kill the snake but Mr. Shores would not allow it and the snake was later returned to the creek.

As you can see in the picture above this is a great example as to how large this snake can get. An interesting point to remember is that when cataloging the snakes they only measure the total length and not the girth of it.

There has been an account reported by earlier explorers of Anaconda being shot that are much larger than this one. One such report came from Adventurer Percy Fawcett, an adventurer. While on an expedition, he reported in his journal that he had shot a huge Anaconda, which was 18.9 m (62 foot) long.

Although his account had been widely ridiculed, several years later a Belgian Zoologist named Bernard Heuvelmans came to his defense and told the world that this was indeed a true account and very factual. He said, “He said he believed that this snake could even grow larger, depending on the food supply and all the right conditions.

A picture of an Anaconda was taken in Pantanal Brazil. The snake will coil itself around its victim and crush it. Most times, it will drag its prey under the water and drown it. There is video’s showing the capture of huge anacondas and it is believed that in the future even bigger ones may be caught. There is much to be discovered and many articles that should be written concerning these huge snakes and other creatures that share the planet with us.

Preserving Our Rainforest

I have decided to share this article with my readers that visit this blog. Since its earliest beginnings it has received a lot of attention from the viewing public as well as the private business sector across the United States and around the world.
*
It has been a benefit to the school children as well as those the live near and deep within the
rain forest. This article has helped to bring change and has contributed to the saving of our precious rain forest.

The
Rain forest will be gone soon. What will this mean to humankind?
*
According to The Nature Conservancy, (2008), “Wild and amazing
rain forest extend from as far as Alaska and Canada to Latin America, Asia and Africa.” Several thousand different species of plants and animals reside in the rain forest that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
*
 The indigenous people of the area are concerned with the many threats the
rain forest is facing; more than 50% of all original rain forest, which are spread out around the globe have been destroyed. The forests have fell victim to ranching, mining, agriculture, logging and many other destructive practices. Logging is one of the main destructive forces and according to The Nature Conservancy, (2008). “Nearly 50 million acres are harvested yearly.”
*
It has taken the
rain forests several million years to grow into the amazingly complex ecological systems they are today. The forests environments depict a vast hoard of regenerative intrinsic living resources that for thousands of years by distinction of their lavishness in both plant and animal species, have bestowed a wealth of assets for the continuation and benefits of humanity. These assets include essential food replenishment, clothing, shelter, fossil fuel, spices, industrial crude materials and basic medicines for all those that reside in the exalted rain forest.
*
However, the inner working of a
rain forest is a complexes and delicate system. Everything becomes so co-dependent that disturbing any part of it could lead to unrealized damage and destruction of the entire rain forest. Regrettable as it may seem, it has only taken a hundred years of human involvement to upset and destroy that which Mother Nature has designed to remain forever if left alone and undisturbed (Rain tree Nutrition, 1996).
*
The National Geographic (1996-2008) stated, “Vegetation replenishes the atmosphere, by releasing moisture collected by the canopy trees; this process is called transpiration.” “A canopy tree can release as much as 200 gallons of water each year.” The moisture in turn creates a thick dense cloud cover which hangs over the
rain forest. This cloud cover even when not raining keeps the forest very moist and warm.
*
“The average rainfall in the Amazon Rain forest is nine feet of water each year,” Educational Web Adventure (1996). The vegetation sucks up the water and expels moisture back into the atmosphere; then contributing and bringing water to other parts of the world. Without the trees and canopy the water cannot be collected and expelled back into the atmosphere, causing drought and possibly climatic change throughout the world.
*
Since the temperatures remain in the high ’70s Fahrenheit all year round and it rains nearly every day making this an ideal condition for supporting life.
Rain forest species can range from a couple of dozen to several million. The many different types of animals and plants rely on the canopy and ground cover to survive; once the magnificent rain forest is gone they will die (Young,).
*
The Brazil nut tree is one of the endangered species that can only grow in the
rain forest. The tree grows 40-50 meters high and lives to be 500-800 years old. The fruit of this tree, which is a nut, is exported to places all over the world. “The United States alone imports nearly 9 metric ton per year” (Rain Tree, 1996).
*
Harvested Brazil nuts.
According to Rain Tree (1996), “The tree does not produce its fruit until it is 30-40 years old. The trees also require a specific species of bee to pollinate the flowers. These combined factors make it highly unsuitable for plantation production.”
*
 The Brazil nut tree is an excellent example of the closely entwined ecosystem of the
rain forest. The agouti is the only animal capable of chewing through the fruit pod to release the seeds for new growth. This huge rat like creature can grow very large up to (10 pounds). The tree, agouti and bees are all co-dependent on each other for its survival (Rain Tree, 1996).
*
The Rain forest is home to several thousand groups of indigenous people each having its own culture and language. These indigenous people have never ventured out to the modern world and have resided in the Rain forest for several millenniums. Each culture depends on the plants and animals for food and medicines. The children are schooled by people within their families and taught how to survive within the confines of the rain forest. The children often have such an extensive knowledge of the indigenous species of plants and animals, that they are able to teach the scientist that come to research inside the rain forest (Silber & Velton, 1996 revised 2004).
*
While doing research into tribal medicine in the heart of the Amazon
Rain forest, I the author of this thesis was able to learn many new and exciting ways in which to incorporate the properties of the plants found in the rain forest into modern day medicine. During my two year stay I lived with several tribes and each tribe taught and freely shared with me, his or her way of life. Although I was an outsider, the tribe members accepted me into their fold with open hands and hearts (Amazon Shaman, personal conversation, 2001-2003).
*
One possible solution that came up while in conversation with a tribal shaman concerning the preservation of the
Rain forest, would be to make all Rain forest National Parks. This would insure the protection of many indigenous species and the people within the rain forest (Amazon Shaman, personal conversation, 2001-2003).
*
Once a proper assessment has been reached weighing both the pros and cons of harvesting the
Rain forest, then adequate laws can be enacted to protect and properly manage dwindling Rain forest; preservation of our Rain forest can begin.
*
Indigenous people are now starting to join forces; fighting for his and her rights and through the means of peaceful organized demonstrations are hoping to bring a resolution to this on-going concern. The people residing inside the
rain forest realize the importance of taking such action. If no action is taken by the people their land and culture will soon be destroyed and lost forever. By joining forces with these groups everyone can help the people who depend on the majestic rain forest to preserve and insure their way of live for years to come (Silber and Velton, 1996 revised 2004).
*
If humankind looks at the benefits then humankind stands to gain by protecting the
rain forest of the world such as, environment, community resources and personal enjoyment then compare them with that which humankind stand to lose by not taking action, Everyone will agree that the pros outweigh the cons.

Using Key Words in Articles

Learning how to expand on the ease of link placements within your articles can bring in more traffic as well as increase you readership and profits.

I have received a lot of e-mails asking me for advice on how to make an article easier for the publishers to place ad links into the body of that which I write. I am no expert on any of this and for me, most of my experiences and lessons learned have come from trial and error, as well as some in-depth research into the subject at hand.

I write a lot of articles on Spirituality, Holistic Medicine, Love, Relationships, Education Nature, Family, Romance and Creative Writing. So to make it easier to place ad links for the publishers of my creations, I first think about how I can find and use powerful key words, which, with great ease can be placed in my soon to be written article. Sometimes this comes easily and with little effort on my part as I have had several years to practice my writing craft. “Practice really does make perfect”, However, there have been many occasions where I was totally at my wit’s end and couldn’t for the life of me come up with what I needed to find and use to make my articles really pop or stand out in the crowd, so to speak.

I decided that I should research ways in which I could make this task a little easier and less time consuming on my part. I set about “brain storming” and came across some really amazing tools that allowed me to accomplish the task at hand. “Key Word Generators” can be found on the Internet with great ease. Search Engines such as Yahoo and Google Dot Com also the Ad-sense program have key word generators built into their sites that allow the person/persons wishing to place ads to expand on their advertisements by typing in the name of the goods or services they wish to advertise while creating their ad.

The generators compile a list of key words that the web surfing consumer is most likely to click on concerning the niche in which your products or services fall into. An example of this could be say, “Home Based Businesses,” the generator might come up with a list such as this: self employment, business, home based business, wealth, money, income, freedom, success and investment. This is just a sample and not necessary the words that are considered the best to use. However, some very easy links to ads can be placed in your creation once you submit it to say Triond for example.

You can also use these words in the Tags portion of your submit an article as well. The more links in your articles the higher the chance of producing a stream of income. This has worked for me very well. Also once you have published your articles post the links on other social sites you may have such as Dig, twitter, Buzz, etc.

Hope this has been helpful in some small way to all the new people coming to Triond and sites of this nature. If you have questions do not be afraid to ask the other writers here; they are a great and valuable source to have as friends and will help if approached for the most part. In closing, anyone in stumble or on Triond and the other blogging sites that use twitter, please add me as a “follower” and I will do the same for you. Also if you like someone’s article click on their subscribe links. This way you don’t miss anything they publish.

Finding Your Niche in the Business Market

The writing and marketing of your finished piece of work on the internet and finding the right niche for your articles can be time consuming, but your efforts will not go unnoticed and your rewards can be very high if you follow some very easy steps.

In this article we will discuss the writing and marketing of your finished piece of work on the internet, as well as, finding the right niche for your articles. A niche is a portion of the market that is looking for and interested in that which you as a supplier have to offer. So when writing an article, make sure you know the part of the online market you want to reach and have look at your finished master piece.


If you’re writing an article concerning the start up of a new business or expanding on an already existing theme of Instant Riches, you may want to use long and short tailed key words in your articles. This will allow the Search Engines to put your finished master piece where it needs to be in order to attract attention to it.

A good example of this would be as follows: this individual wants to attract the attention of that activist concerning a Green Earth, so with this in mind, he or she might incorporate these long and short tailed phrases into the article, endangered rainforest, a greener tomorrow, recycling, tree planting, clean air, pollution and acid rain. The list is endless, but if used properly and incorporated into your articles, they will be noticed by the search engines and put out there in the main stream of online traffic.

Some of us on here like to write about that which has influenced our way of thinking and how we as individuals see the world on a global scale. Placing our articles in Niches such as: Life Styles, Nature, God, Hope, Health, Family, Relationships and Romance; these are but a few of the powerful tags as well as key words that can be incorporated into just about any article. When placing them in your article one must also try not to over stuff the article with them as well. A few well placed key words will work well and draw a lot of traffic from the niche they are targeted at.

There are many forms and Styles of writing out there in the world today; one of my favorites is Creative Writing, as it allows me to level the playing field with the other writers that produce equally amazing and well read creations. There are also several niches I can place my product that is in demand in. There are several other directions you may consider taking as well that will help you to earn a living in the writer’s craft.

If you’re hoping to make a full time living of writing you may also think and consider, about writing articles for magazines such as: Readers Digest, Time, Business World Today, Discover, Scientific American and Guide Post. There are several other Magazines out there as well. Some of this individuals favorite magazines are Country, Country living, Family Circle, Red Book, Women’s Day, Astrology Today and People. For those of you that have healthy life styles and enjoy sporting activities, you may find that you as an individual would enjoy writing articles for the, Sports Illustrated Magazine Company.

This writer likes to expand on his craft by reading and absorbing as much information concerning the ever expanding multi-universes of the writing craft. I have stumbled and fell flat on my face at times while working hard to achieve my lofty goals in life. Each time though I have picked myself up dusted off and learned by my blunders as well as my successes along the way.
Due to the hard work and the many years I have practiced my writing skills, I have been able as a writer to use the lesson learned as a springboard to my own personal success. It has allowed me to become an Editor’s Choice Award Recipient, in the past year, on thirteen separate occasions and to become a self publisher of several online How to Do Books as well as books on Short Stories and Poetry.


This was not because of lack of effort on my part or because as some have said, “Your Gifted and got all the Lucky Breaks.” This is because like all of you out there in the writing community, I developed my skills as a writer through listening; reading others materials, love of and for the writing craft and hard work.


I hope in some small way that this article has helped others to expand on their goals as writers and I do not usually write articles concerning things like this. I chose to because we as a writing community must stand firm for each other, give support and encouragement to our brothers and sisters in our respective and growing online community of growing artist in what this individual calls the Writers Guild.

Let’s Make Money in Advertising

These are some of the questions that a lot of people have been asking since the explosion of online marketing began. Can the thousands of advertising agencies that now use the electronic highways of modern day society continue to thrive, with the constant up swing of cyber technology?

In the growing world of internet, the supply and demand for easier cost effective means in which to bring goods and services to the mass media continues to expand. Advertisers have found a cost effective way through insertion of links into articles written by writers on sites such as Triond, Helium, Reddit and private blogs. No longer do they have the added cost of having to have writers on their pay-rolls or pay out huge pay checks. Which, in return makes this kind of advertising very cost effective for them, in other words, “More Bang for Their Advertising Dollars?”

Web sites of this nature are increasingly easier to build due to the explosion of cyber technology and the advancement of modern day cultures. A great example of this would be the news world. No longer does one need to rely on television or radio as it now can be viewed as it happens on the spot and in most cases can be seen on the internet before it is heard on the radio or TV. Although, radio and TV will never become like the dinosaurs due to the explosion of cyber space, as this writer calls it, the question still begs to be asked and answered; can we as the writers of these articles stand to make money?

What would happen if the writers decided to create their own web site and supply the ongoing articles as a direct means of cost effective advertising to the advertising media directly? This of course would cut out the middle man as I choose to term it and put more money in the hands of the writers that create articles using their creative writing skills and well learned craft. The individual may ask, “Is this possible or even worth taking the risk?” Some on here even say to look at the long term goals and not the short term aspects of what is hoped to be gained.

This individual is not here to argue this point and chooses to agree to disagree as to his or her own opinions concerning this subject. An old friend once told me, “My young friend, there are movers and shakers in the world today.” “You can set on the fence and watch the world go by or you can jump in with both feet and get wet.” My friend was a very wise man and also very rich. He turned a simple newspaper column into a thriving newspaper and later started his own advertising agency.

So if you were to ask me, “Can you make money in advertising and will the online market continue to grow?” My answer would be yes. Then I too would ask, “Are you a mover and a shaker?” or “Would you rather sit on the fence and let the world go by?” It all boils down to the personal choices that you as an individual make. There is no right or wrong choice; but rather, what are you comfortable with doing.

Grant Writing

Due to the numerous responses to my articles concerning Government Grants and where to find them, I have decided to write this article on Grant Writing. A large share of the questions I was asked, concerned the writing of a grant request, once the person applying for the grant decided on which grant they wanted. In this article, I will write concerning the steps involved if the individual was writing the request personally without the help of a “Professional Grant Writing Service.”

I fielded some questions to a teacher friend of mine on the Triond.com web site and was able to get some really great advice as well as a common sense approach when applying for these grants. I decided to use the teacher’s insight in this particular article as she said it best when she stated:

“Most government grants relate to institutions such as, hospitals or colleges–at least in the United States. You might take a look at the National Arts Council–they may still do some individual grant work. Occasionally, corporations fund projects they find valuable or offer competitive prizes. Some religious organizations fund grants for missionary or similar projects. (At one time, I had pie-in-the-sky plans for a school that utilized alternative energy, hands on real-life type projects, and offered refuge for the young people between the ages of 12 and 25 who get kicked out of their homes. It didn’t fly, but I learned a lot in the process of investigating the options.)

The biggest piece of advice I can give, is go directly to the grantor for rules, regulations and deadlines. Don’t deal with a middle-man, unless you are able to afford a professional grant writer. Don’t bother with the “the government has your money, all you have to do is ask for it” scam artists. DO read the grant carefully from start to finish. Make sure that you have the available personnel to fulfill the requirements. Be accurate when you fill it out. Use good, clear grammar and word it the way they indicate it needs to be worded. Turn it in on time. Then pray–a lot! That’s about it…the competition for “free” money is extreme. You need to be really, really good and very innovative to catch the grantor’s attention.

This is just from my experience the few times I’ve helped with grant writing. Most of the ones I’ve worked on had to do with Reading Programs or acquiring library materials.

This information was based on Daisy Peasblossom’s personal experience as an individual and a professional working in our education system. She makes some very good points concerning the grant writing process and also warns us to use caution when dealing with those out there that say, “It’s free money” and “All you need to do is just ask for it.” There are no guarantees.
The individuals applying for the grants need to understand that even if they do everything right, there is no guarantee that he/she will get it. The competition for these grants is very high. If you hope to get a grant, you must follow the directions and the guidelines set by the grantor to the letter and not deviate from the set guidelines when requesting one.

So far we have been given a great deal of information that will indeed help us if and when we decide to apply for a grant, without the help of a professional grant writer. So at this time let us take a moment and recap what we have learned so far. This writer likes to put key information, which will be needed down on paper in bullet form for easy referencing as follows:

· Go directly to the grantor for rules, regulations and deadlines.
· Don’t deal with a middle-man, unless you are able to afford a professional grant writer.
. Don’t bother with the “the government has your money, all you have to do is ask for it” scam artist.

DO read the grant carefully from start to finish.
· Make sure that you have the available personnel to fulfill the requirements.
· Be accurate when you fill it out.
· Use good, clear grammar and word it the way they indicate it needs to be worded.
· Turn it in on time, (Very Important).
· You need to be really, really good and very innovative to catch the grantor’s attention.
· Don’t come off wimpy, Assert yourself in a positive way, so be upfront don’t beat around the bush and tell the grantor this is why I deserve to receive this grant.

In article two of this series on grant writing, I will be discussing using the services of Professional Grant writers, as an alternative to that of an individual applying on his or her own.

Credit Cards

This writer has often thought about applying for a line of credit/credit cards etc...
Several questions have continually plagued me concerning the application processes involved in doing so.

What is the best credit card company to sign up with?
Are there any Credit Card Companies out there which will work with me?
What are the interest rates charged by these card companies?
Are there hidden cost?
Which Credit Card Companies are the most popular?

These are but a few of the questions that I as an individual has found myself asking each time I think about applying for one or more of these types of cards. I invite you the readers of this article to help give me insight concerning this matter.

Can You Make Money With Google?

Google has decided to open their doors to the public by allowing people the opportunity to work from the comfort of their homes. This mega company has created a new niche in the ever declining job market that seems to point to an ongoing depression of the present and foreseeable future. In today's ever growing market of online businesses on the world wide web one is forced to ask the question, Can you make money working online with huge businesses such as Google.com?

With more and more new businesses as well as the continuing growth and expansion of existing online businesses there indeeds seems to be a huge need for online workers! Hats off to those companies such as this one that have the insightfulness and courage to move ahead.

For those of us that cannot find work and have health problems that make it very difficult to commute to and from work in the outside world this opportunity may well provide us the means in which to become self supporting as well as the chance to change our lives in a very positive way.

This writer has decided to try this new business venture which Google.com has advertised to the public. I plan to stay with this program as well as do my own in depth research into its viability; I will publish all my findings as I go. One must however remember, that there are no get rich quick schemes that ever work! To succeed in any kind of business it takes careful planning, hard work, drive and determination.

I invite all that read my ongoing blogs to make comments as well as bring their own personal experiences forwards. It's by sharing information that we as an ever growing community learn.
