What Else Can I Do on the Internet? A Practical Guide for Internet Users Bored with Routine by Nicholl McGuire

Image
Whether one is an Internet guru or dummy to new online inventions, sometimes it can be quite a challenge to find what you need versus what you want on the Internet.  In my new computer guide, What Else Can I Do on the Internet? by Nicholl McGuire, I am sharing my computer experiences, providing useful tips on searching for websites, and telling of some fun, creative ideas you may not have thought of online.  This book is a combination of story-telling and instruction to help you stimulate your Internet experiences.

If you are tired of the usual stuff you do online, why not get this book?  There are many timeless activities listed in the guide.  I was inspired to write this work many years ago when I noticed that I often forgot about some interesting things I wanted to do on the Internet, but didn't bother to bookmark, write websites down, or share things I thought might interest others.  I also wanted a handy guide near my computer that I could pick up when I'm bored.  So this…

15th Book Released - Face Your Foe on Confronting the Critics by Nicholl McGuire

It was long overdue to print a book that had begun about the same time I started Know Your Enemy: The Christian's Critic back in 2009 but released it in 2013 with the '09 copyright.  I had taken a pile of printed sheets and placed them in a manila folder, I had no passion or plans for a work that just might ruffle someone or a group's feathers again (yes my work does just that).  However, my God had other plans and it felt like out of the blue I became determined one day to work on that book.  On the other hand was Face Your Foe...(which had no subtitle at the time), it just wasn't ready--not in 2011, 2014, or even 2016, but then 2017 came along.

Over the years, I was still learning more about the greatest adversary to the Christian faith, Satan.  It wasn't time to face a foe when I was still gaining some understanding as to why I was still sparring with him about the work rather than trusting in my personal Savior to complete it. 

You see, God had set me on a pat…

Writing. It has been a passion, an income stream, a release, and all things pertinent to my being for over three decades.  When you have been involved with anything for such a long time, it can be difficult to change or even let it temporarily or permanently go.

I remember a time taking a long break from writing nonfiction, features, editorials, creative, and business writing. I became too busy with my life.  My focus was on a pregnancy, a newborn, and a new life with someone.  It happens.  Sometimes our talents and skills take a backseat.  Yet, the key to making them relevant in our lives again is making time for them like you do everything else.  You sit down and just write, paint, draw, read, plan, or do whatever else your little heart desires.  Ignore the yearning within to "just do it" whatever "it" is and you won't be pleased with yourself.

I recall a day where I just wrote and wrote because that's what I set out to do.  I took breaks, but I went ri…

Attention Virtual Assistants, Writers: Don't Cave into the "Free" in Freelance

Image
Some people notice "free" in freelance and think that services are free.  Others, who work as freelancers, see FREEDOM.  You are now free to work with who or whatever you choose (with a fee of course) and you are your own boss.  You make the rules, set the prices, pay your taxes, and take breaks when you feel like it.  Yet, in my quest to grow my business, I realize that free or freedom doesn't work like it once did for us freelancers.  The demands of our money and time are greater--every software program costs and any special request from a client ends up costing more time than its worth.  When we use "free" in marketing, we are attracting a bunch of spoiled people who want something for nothing.


I am one who wants to help others, but not at the expense of having my family frown on me because once again I can't meet their requests because I am too busy doing something d*mn near close to free. 

Years ago, when I was a mere 19 years old I started "McG…
