Cool Tumblrs : Movie Reviews Written as Haiku Poems

Found the most amazing entertainment blog! On my list of Cool Tumblrs, this blog ranks Numero Uno!! In fact, this blog is Number One no matter what platform it's published on.  

The publisher writes movie reviews in haiku. 




Takes quickie movie reviews to another level.  Right?  This person should have a segment on one of the entertainment TV shows where they come on at the last minute and recite their movie critique/poem for a new movie release.  It would only take 2 or 3 minutes.


The post archive dates back to 2005.  Even found a few movies that I never heard.  The only thing that could blog even better would be to include foreign films, i.e. not made in America or not made by Americans.


Here is the link to the haiku of a Johnny Depp movie that everybody was raving about.

Rahab by Eikonik | From the Chest from Atlantis Archive

Tumblr users like, reblog or like and reblog, but now there is a wonderful feature where HTML code is provided and bloggers on non-Tumblr platforms can share content found on Tumblr.  Below is an embedded post from a Tumblr blogger who shares art depictions of ancient history – people and places.  

The artwork shown below in the embedded content from the Tumblr blog depicts the part of the biblical account where she hid the Jewish spies on her rooftop.  This is a complement to a post previously published here at My Blog Stop! about a woman in the Bible known as Rahab the harlot.

UPDATE Sep 2017:
During 2016 my Tumblr account was deleted.  They got their rules.  Follow them or leave! By the end of the year, a new Tumblr blog was set up.  They only deleted my blog.  They didn't banish me!  Evidently, I didn't commit an unforgivable sin, so they let me create another account.  Frankly, I find the Tumblr Staff folks to be very reasonable.  They always answer my messages.  That's very professional and courteous, considering I got a free account.  Wonder how they treat their paying customers.

My new Tumblr blog is called FoxNet2017.

Much like the other blog it can be considered a lifestyle blog or placed under a general category or niche like "Society and Culture" because it shares whatever happens (current events) or has happened (history) in our world.

Science and Politics of Global Warming VS Climate Change

Science and Politics of Global Warming VS Climate Change

Once upon a time, I used to watch the Discovery Channel but no more. No point crying over spilled milk. Today I made a wonderful discovery. Discovery News which is under the corporate umbrella for the Discovery Communications, LLC, has a Tumblr blog, as do I. The difference between the DiscoveryNews blog and mine is that their blog actually adds value to world wide web and learning community; whereas my blog only oozes my personality. One thing leads to another and in visiting the blog it led me to a video which asked an interesting question: “Ever wonder what the difference between “global warming” and “climate change” is?”



My answer is “No.” Why would I wonder? They’re both the same thing. NOT!!

My bad! Trace Dominguez, the guy in the video totally straightened me out. He also clarified how the Republicans use the terms “global warming” and “climate change” which is a thought that had never crossed my mind.

I’m wondering if the guy actually wants me to take him seriously or if he was doing a comedy routine with a straight face. I can’t tell. (O.o) (???)

Here’s the link to the video.

Advantages of Collections on Google Plus

Are you a Google Plusser? Why not? Didn't create an account because there were predictions that Google management was considering kicking the network to the curb? Yes.  There was a buzz about that.

Several years back when Google Plus social media network was still in test mode, I received an invitation via eMail to participate in the project. When the decision was made to open to the public, I was already on board and they even gave me a custom URL for my profile.  My G+ experience has been very pleasant, although there are probably loads of features I have not learned how to use.

One of the features I have learned to use is the Collections.



Google Plus Collections is Google's answer to Pinterest users. Pinterest boards are for you to arrange your interests in an orderly fashion.  G+ Collections help you arrange your G+ posts in an orderly manner.  Why would you need to do that?  Ever try to search for one of your posts or links that you shared into the stream from a few years back?


All my G-Plus activity goes back several years. Tried going to my profile posts stream and scrolling down. That didn't work. If you scroll down your profile page looking for old posts you will discover that the post stream only goes back so far. You say to yourself: “How can this be? Have my posts disappeared?” Of course not! This is Google we're talking about! If Facebook can share your memories with you from years gone by, then there had better be a way to search for and find your old Google Plus posts.

Found a way to do that. It wasn't exactly simple. But it was doable. It is not easy to explain the process, so I'll direct you to the post where I found the information which I saved for future reference in my G+ Collections created for my business page called Tips and Advice for Business (Work-at-Home, etc.):





So how does this all tie together? If you find your old Google Plus activity and move it to your Collections activity, for your profile or your business page, then later you can just go there and retrieve your old posts. As a test, moved an old post from 2012 to a collection on my profile. View here.

So! You can probably conclude that although G+ Collections are good for organizing your Plus activity, in my opinion, the primary advantage of maintaining Collections on Google Plus is that you can retrieve your activity history.

Side Note:
  • All of my G+ Collections are set to Public, so you if you want to look at how my collections are organized, you can view the content even if you are not a member of the network. My Writings, My Work, My World, My Way is my collection which appears on my profile.  (In comparison, you have to have an account with Pinterest to view my various pinboards.  My profile shows 57 boards which include group boards.  Home Business Works on Pinterest.)

Did you find this blog post helpful?
Please let me know by leaving a comment and/or sharing with others.  Thanks! :)

Meaning, Origin and History of the Name "Shirin"

Determining the origin of or learning the meaning of a name has always been fascinating to me. My kids enjoy playing video games and lots of times I've noticed that the characters have names that sound very unusual to me. In addition, as I am a very active Tumblr blogger, the artists and gamers share interesting tidbits and illustrations about these characters.

Came across a cute illustration by a Tumblr blogger of a character named Shirin.  (See below.)  It was a sketch done for “The Arcana”.  Staying in the know about video games isn't at the top of my “To Do List”; but did have some extra time so did a little research on that name. These are my findings. My research is not extensive but it is enlightening and entertaining.  😊

Update to My First Blog Post at My Blog Stop!

Three years ago during the first week of the month of April 2014, I was just starting up this blog. 

Don't laugh at me, laugh with me. 🤣

If you view my post ~ MyFirst Blog Post at My Blog Stop! Welcome! ~ you will see that out of all of my attempts at publishing blogs, only one blog is still standing as of 2017. Yep yep. All of my Tumblr microblogs took a tumble and went by the wayside. 😞


If at first you don't succeed … cry cry cry … and then try try tryagain!!



Created a brand new Tumblr account and started up two microblogs: FoxNet2017 and FoodWays2017. Sharing two sample posts below.



Created a foodie blog using Blogspot to complement/supplement my affiliate marketing website:






Kept my membership with the Blogjob (BJ) community and continued to share advice for newbie bloggers via My Pain, Your Gain.



Since the BJ community allows more than one blog, created a second blog for affiliate marketing purposes and called it My Shopping Channel.




Still maintaining my Google Plus business page (or brand account), "Home Business Works"; and Google granted me a custom URL for the page (in place of the numerical ID). 


That's the update!

Hollywood Legends : Iconic Female Celebrities: Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962) (Guest Post)

Today, Marilyn Monroe would be 90 years old, but the diva passed away in 1962. Many people know her celebrity persona, and she still is viewed as an icon of beauty and femininity. But let’s take a look at her off screen personality. Here are seven (7) biographical facts. 

   

This marvelous timeline of photographs ~ "A picture of Marilyn for every year she was alive, 1926-1962." ~ was shared on Google Plus by Divine Riggio : Vintage Photographies of Human Life 







1. Marilyn Monroe was born June 1, 1926, Los Angeles, California.



2. Ms. Monroe feared that viewers would think of her as about a "frivolous fool", so she studied and rehearsed earnestly at various acting studios.



3. Despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe is considered a sex symbol, she confessed in her diaries: "I was always very physically clamped. I have always been sure that something is wrong with me."




Image credit:  Another photo shared by Divine Riggio on G+ ~ "A teenage Norma Jeane, later known as Marilyn Monroe. Circa 1940." 


 



4. Marilyn Monroe loved to read. More than 400 books were in her personal library. She did not finish high school and felt the need to continue her education on her own, not only to quench her thirst for knowledge but in order to be on par with others who were blessed to complete a formal education program.








5. Before becoming a famous actress, she worked at an aircraft factory, during the World War II. Her job was crucial, She was checked the serviceability of parachutes. One of the photographers, who was looking for "fresh faces" noticed her there. The rest, as they say, is history.



6. Marilyn Monroe ate very little and could spend an entire day drinking only orange juice. Yet she has never been skinny, according to today's “perfect size” standards (say size 5 by comparison to today's slim petite almost emaciated models who wear a size 2).







7. In order to become the wife of her third husband, Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism. She was fond of Arthur Miller and trust him a lot. It was his betrayal that completely undermined her faith in people.



Over half a century later, Marilyn Monroe is still revered as a Hollywood legend, an ideal American beauty / diva. Her popularity has not dwindled. It is a pity that her life ended up so early or to quote another diva, Sir Elton John, she was like a “candle in the wind”.

Work at Home ~ Home Biz Projects : Another Weekend! - UPDATE #1

This time last year, it was another weekend and in this post - WAH! On Top of WAH! Another Weekend! - I provided a status report on my various work at home projects. At that point, I had created several potential residual income streams ( or at least I thought I had). 😉  Quote from the previous post:

"Tsū , myLot , my blogs at - Tumblr, BlogJob and Blogger (or Blogspot ), and online writing communities like  DailyTwoCents , HUBPages , Wizzley, etc."

♦ ♦ ♦  UPDATES:

  • Tsū went belly up!  I'm a tad bit upset because I had written reviews of some movies and TV shows.  Plan to republish the content elsewhere.  Already republished one of the posts at.  Check it out!  Review:  Mary Kom (2014) ~ Fans of Priyanka Chopra.

  • myLot is working out and has actually paid me several times.  This is my most recent discussion.  You don't earn based on starting discussions.  You get paid for interacting with members.  But sometimes to do that you have to start a conversation.

But Suppose We're Not GREAT Again? / myLot


But Suppose We're Not GREAT Again? / myLot

So what happens if Mr. T doesn't make good on his promise to make America great again? (Scoff!) First of all, how dare you even entertain such a thought? But! ... Since you're thinking on it ... (Sigh.) We make plans. We break promises. In this life, one should always have Plan A and Plan B.

  • My blogs at - Tumblr?  Long story short.  My account got deleted.  The old blogs were sent to the Tumblr graveyard.  The company is being acquired by a new owner.  The management and staff is experimenting with placing ads in the blogs, intending to keep the platform free for the users.  Meanwhile, I created two new Tumblr blogs at the end of 2016.  FoxNet2017 and FoodWays2017.  Why?  Because they let me do it!  Plus!  Tumblr is a neat blogging/micro-blogging platform and you are allowed to place affiliate ads to monetize your blog.  Just check their "Help" in the dashboard for more details.  Why wouldn't I want to try again?

  • BlogJob stopped their Points Program but I was undaunted.  Not only did I keep my blog - My Pain, Your Gain - up and running; but I started a new blog for affiliate marketing purposes:  My Shopping Channel.  The site owners are OK with members using affiliate referral links.  Currently the site owners are experimenting with Google Ads, in the hopes of generating more revenue.  Hope these experiments are successful.  The platform is good to use but whereas, it used to be a social community where you could sign in and not only go about your blogging business but interact and chat with fellow bloggers, the "socializing" aspect went Bye Bye when the Points Program ended.


  • Blogger (or Blogspot)?  In addition to this blog, at the end of 2016, I set up a foodie blog called Food Ways Presented by Everyday Exotic Spices.  A friend of mine and fellow food blogger visited and gave me lots of advice, tips and feedback on how to make the blog look more visually appealing.  It looks pretty to me!  Also, I am able to use Amazon Native Ads on Blogspot blogs.  No surprise.  If you can remember way back, the Blogspot platform used to have a feature that allowed the blogger to incorporate relevant links to Amazon products.

As for the online writing communities?  My aim was to publish evergreen content (content that is relevant and not restricted to a specific period of time) so that I could set it, forget it, and appreciate whatever residual income is generated by the pages.  I revisit from time to time to check for broken links and update any info that may have changed.  Here are links to my writer profile at the various sites:  Daily Two Cents; Writedge; HUBPages; Wizzley; and Webnuggetz.  Most of my revenue is earned via the Google Ad Sense revenue-share plan.  Commissions are also being earned from sales of affiliate products.  ("Slow but steady wins the race."  😀) 

During the year (2016), signed up at two new sites.  One is a blogging community:  Literacy Base.  This site is good because you earn for blogging, for commenting at blogs, for participating in groups and forums, for updating your profile timeline.  You even earn for just logging in to your account.  Have received payment.  This is my most recent post:



The other site, Niume, is a collaborative blogging platform created to help you promote your blog.  In other words, republished content from your blog is accepted.  It's also a good place to share your original content.  Examples:
You can not use affiliate links and your earn revenue for referrals and for views.  Learn more:  How Does Niume Revenue Work.

  • My referral link if you sign up through me:  Join Niume! Where it says "Create a Post", click on it and the sign up form will pop up.  You must use a valid eMail address.

Closing off this update with another reminder from another previous post.  Remember that Pinterest can also be used as a blogging/micro-blogging platform and affiliate links are allowed.



If you want to earn extra income, hope you find this information useful.

Legends, Myths, Fables, Folklore, Culture on Pinterest

My Pinterest account is a business account, thanks to the graciousness of the company owners. It also includes collections that are not business-related. The boards had been created when the account was a personal account and even though I converted to a business account, I kept the my pinboards. 


One of my favorite personal collections is Legends, Myths,Fables, Folklore, Culture. 

"Pegasus is one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology. He is a winged divine stallion also known as a horse usually depicted as pure white in color. He was sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa." Wikipedia

If you have some free time, you really should visit and peruse my pins. My collection includes what the usual that Westerners have come to expect when you say the word “mythology”, i.e. winged horses, unicorns and Greco-Roman gods and goddesses. 


But there are also pins for anything and everything from Poliahu,the Hawaiian snow goddess TO A List of Poisonous Plants and Herbs and Their Lore.


Collected some information about nymphs.  Publishing the post here and will share it via Pinterest.  Enjoy!

(P.S.  I'm also expanding my collection to Tumblr.  See my first reblogged post below.)

The Seven Kings of Rome


The Seven Kings of Rome

There was once a group of villages on seven hills which grew into an empire. But how did it happen? During the reign of Emperor Augustus, the historian Livy (Titus Livius) gathered myths, legends, folklore (possibly adding in facts and information that could be verified or authenticated by others) and wrote down the story of how the Roman Empire came to be.
