International Military Tribunal

I embarked on a historical quest. I want to explore and reveal (if possible) the corporations and professions that benefited from the concentration camps and the experiments held therein. I want to see if these third parties were penalized or reprimanded in any way for their involvement, awareness, and complacency. A friend sent me this link and it is a fantastic source. It links to the actual tribunal proceedings documents. I should find something there. International Military Tribunal

Suggested reads...

December 2011 Goodreads recommendations
Click above for the latest Goodreads newsletter. Now I have a ton more reading to do.

Currently I am reading on Mendele and researching how the medical and pharmaceutical industries benefited from the SS experiments in the concentration camps of WWII.
I know that all experiments were ordered destroyed but you cannot take back what you already know or learned... it had to impact your practice and the industry... the challenge is in proving it.

Affiliate Traffic Jam boot camp day 2

This is definitely something I can use... I am pumped and will start going this route with some great niches to get in on. Go to and get's free!!
I will use google key words, Google trends, and Amazon best sellers time and time again... thank you!!

The Affiliate Traffic Jam.... may actually have advise and tips I can use...

Last night I stumbled upon The Affiliate Traffic Jam. It is a site that shows you 1 video a day and has you follow the steps so that you can build your online marketing portfolio and business. I only saw one vid so far and it was nothing I didn't already know and hadn't already done ages ago. As an English and lit lover, I was not impressed when I saw spelling errors in the text. My faith in this site dropped exponentially. However, it is free to watch and may build up to something of value so I will watch today's and let you know.
In the meantime, feel free to check it out for yourself at

How to sift through all the scams for working online ...

I have been searching for ways to get into online marketing without having to pay up front for what I already know. I have found a few pointless sources... is just one. I stumble upon it and thought for $10 for info may be I can figure out where to get started and maybe even more. Well, I did get that but since then I am unundated with emails, phone calls, and all sorts of other guidance CDs, books, conference calls, etc that they want me to buy into. I quickly realized that these guys are marketing gurus in the sense that they sell you information and if you join them, that is all you will do as well. You will get in on selling their information to other poor saps who don't realize that with some savvy research and by using the hours they would have to spend listening to and reading all the information sixfigures throws at them actually marketing they would be making money already.
Another pointless one is Joe Vitale. He is more a motivational speaker who makes money telling people to search within themselves and heal themselves so they can be rich too. Another who profits from the weak. No thank you.
I hooked up with warriorforum and from there you can see all kinds of marketing resources. Some are scams and some are actually helpful. It boils down to keeping your critical hat on and doing some research of your own to see what is legit and what is just like the old mail order work from home programs where you just sell  other people the information you just bought.
I have decided to go it on my own and apply to be an affiliate with companies I am interested in and industries I enjoy or support.
I figure if I spend a couple of hours each day posting stuff wherever I can it should start paying off for me and the companies I support.
I will shout it to the world when I receive my first payment!!

I am researching and highly interested in getting into affiliate marketing. The trouble is I am not a business. I have to get a domain name and a website first.... I connected with this pair of guys who will get it all up and running but I do not have the coin as of yet. When I do, I am definitely going to get started. I can use my writing skills to promote business and companies I value and then when they get traffic from my site referrals, I will get commissions. It sounds like a win win. Any one doing this or heard of this?

I recently stumbled upon by being followed on twitter this cool possibility

I wanted to share something I recently was introduced to because they are now following me on Twitter. Check it out!! They are a ebook publishing company that primarily publishes short history ebooks. I am trying to locate and will begin reviewing my research and hopefully getting into that market. You write your ebook and them submit a proposal to them. If they like it and think it would sell they publish and market it. You get royalties from sales. They work with apple apps!!

Check them out!

ahh Success ... how many loops, curves and flats will it take to get there?

"The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, caution lights called family and you will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance and insurance called faith, you will make it to a place called success. Add to that preparation, discipline, focus and enthusiasm and you have a recipe for success."

- Unknown

My sister posted this on her FB. She stole it from her hubby and I stole it from here... that's a loop and curve if you ever saw one!!

My website is up and running!

As part of my attempt to see where my writing will take me, I have this blog, twitter, and a website. I chose to use a pseudo name for my creative writing website for two reasons:
1. to separate my writing from my self
2. Also because I promised my self that when I chose to write publicly, I would take on the name my mother wanted to give me as my pen name. I believe it is a great pen name.

So my writing website is
It contains creative pieces, stream of conscience, and reflective works. In order to keep those writing juices flowing this site will serve as my muse. I will go to her daily to write something. It may be a combination of copying things written in the past and writing on the fly.

My ideal life would be to teach in schools because youth are inspirational and motivational and to write for a career and pleasure.

I am going through my writings and finding many little pieces and snippets that will serve as starting points for larger works. I am still in the discovery stage, however, so do not know what I will write first.
This has been a wonderful experience so far and I don't know why I waited so long to start.

If you are seeking ways to learn if you have what it takes to be a writer, I highly recommend you do the same. Start a blog, put tidbits on twitter and facebook and launch a website.

Weebly is great because it is FREE, simple drag and drop, easy to set up, update and maintain. Each time you publish there are options to post on twittter and Facebook that you have added to your site!! You can also put is documents, images, video, so if you want to read your works, you can publish that as well. In the settings you can set your site up so that you get maximum hits on google. You can also get involved in Google Adsense and possibly gain some income from advertising. You can also put on a +1 button that increases your popularity, thus bringing your site closer to the top of google searches, when viewers click it to show they like your site!! I have looked at wix and other free website hosting but Weebly is the best.

I also started a forum on my site and posed a question which I hope people respond to. I will post periodically on the forum in hopes of getting a healthy discussion going.

Please share how you got started writing and creating a buzz for your self. What worked and what didn't? How would you do it differently knowing what you do now?

Entering the digital marketing world

Today I began something I have been meaning to for a long time now. I began creating a forum for me to share my writing and see what comes of it. I have been writing my whole life. Mostly in times of pain, stress, conflict, healing. However, I also wrote in the academic world which exposed me to the art and skill of writing creative non-fiction.

My goal is to write something every day and this is were it will be. It can also be found on my facebook wall and Twitter.

The first thing I would like to put forth is something I wrote almost 10 years ago:

In the corner of a dark room -
A young girl  crouches,
Shaking as the tears fall to the floor. She is rocking with a baby clutched to her chest.
Softly, she sings the only lullaby she knows. The child goes limp in her arms.
Still she rocks and sings as the tears cleanse her baby's lifeless body.

Tighter now she presses him close. Rocking harder and harder as the lullaby crescendos into longing cries of pain and despair. She pleads for one small movement but nothing. Weary, she collapses with her son inside one last time.


Can you hear it?
The sounds souls just dying
From suffocation and starvation?
The will to live is lost to them now.

Can you feel it?
Decaying passions and
Spreading sloth
Destroying the seeds of perfection?

Can you see it?
Bodies pacing behind
The bounds of society
Bruised from rubbing against the norm
But too blind to just walk through?

I guess you can't
Because  it's you.


Stay tuned for more and a website URL!!!
