Not for sell


Write a script for a late-night infomercial — where the product is your blog. How do you market yourself? What qualities do you embody that other “products” don’t? What are the benefits of reading your blog?

Melodic instrumental music, no words.

I’m not selling anything. I’m trying to use this time to show you some beautiful things to relax a little from the stress of the day. I would like to be a good script writer to have ready for you a little program full of beautiful, peaceful images and good music. But I don’t have a sufficient knowledge of the TV to do it.

My blog  is  not for sale. I don’t want to commercialize it. I only can offer in it what inspires me the Daily prompt usually from the perspective of my daily life and my experience as a journalist. Sometimes I try a little short fiction story, but this is rare. So nothing outstanding. What are the benefits of reading my blog? I have no idea. I hope other bloggers who participate in the daily prompt and other challenges at WordPress find my point of view interesting as I find their posts interesting and useful. I enjoy being in contact with bloggers from all around the globe commenting about the same topic at the same time.

Of course I could use the opportunity to promote my other blog at Then I would advertise a site with selected news, comments, analysis and links about World News from the perspective of a journalist with more than 30 years on the job. What are the benefits of reading my blog? you can find most of the information you like about world news and human rights selected in one site . At least this is what I’m trying to do. But you have to know that is a personal blog so it’s just a selection…

I’m not in the mood and I feel ridiculous in this self promoting post.
