Blog Knowledge

Someone posted an article about understanding the technology needed to construct an attractive website and how to use that new-found ability to improve on what you have.

As I’m a seventy-year-old dinosaur when comes to this sort of thing I thought I would read it, absorb it and then upgrade to somewhere in the ionosphere to wait and reflect on my achievements. However, no matter how much effort I put into tutorials on the subjects of ‘plugins, widgets, etc, etc, my analytical thought process remains a crumbling, decrepit mess. I can’t do it! So why do I constantly try whenever I see these–Three Easy Steps To Heavenly Blogging thingamajigs?

I guess it’s the challenge it represents and knowing I’m going to fail before I even try has now become my inescapable nemesis that knocks on my brain and won’t go away.

When I was young the assimilation of knowledge on most subjects was a trouble-free exercise that I would breeze through whenever required. When necessary, I was able to put aside that part in order to enjoy the pleasures bestowed by the privileged place I had in the educational world of abundance of challenges. Both success and failure followed, but never did failure arise when it came to the academic qualifications that commercialism measures triumph. This technological age is not kind to me, nor will it ever be. I just wish some of the capacity for learning was still available to comprehend these puzzles.

Ah well, life is a bestselling book until it nears its end when we all know how the writer ties the compelling story together to reach his climax. Is it not fascinating how everyone’s story is so different yet its end is the same? I wish you all a scintillating life with a myriad of pages on which your life is recorded, but my advice would be to—Back it up on a hard drive.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada, and Australia.  Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

  2. I have my husband and my sons to help me, Danny. I have also had to learn because of my job but I struggle with some things on WP and other platforms. This post gave me a good laugh, especially the end. PS you are not a dinosaur. My mom is turning 81 on Sunday and she is full of energy.

    You see, you confuse me with the WP and platforms. The only platforms I know are at railway stations. You are lucky to have so much family, Robbie.
