Hey! Not bad, but....... It is horrible how long you have to wait to go on when your time is over. It is truly @#$%!y that it takes Soooooo long to go from one put to another. If you don't wish to wait 30 mins or longer you have to pay! I don't pay for any kind of game! So change something about the time it takes to travel......! You can't go on with the android game a lot of a lot of times because you have to wait! Horrible! Thanks
As a journalism student about to graduate, this book created me think about a lot of things event lately in the media shop structure. I'm from Brazil, so of course not all the facts were exactly the same. But as I work as a researcher and have beem discussing in my job a lot about the future of journalism, the author's views were a amazing source to fresh ideas and thoughts. I believe this Kindle Single is a very amazing source to anyone who has interest in the field and is willing to read some new fresh ideas to break some hundred year old paradigms which still surround journalism.
FIVE STARS - WE ARE ALL PUBLISHERSThere are few books out there, as most of readers and critics know, to which I give five stars. The Business of Media - A Survival Guide, however, is one such book. What's more - it's deserving of five stars not just for its target audience (journalists, publishers, media types) but for little businesses as well. Why? Because Larry Dignan "gets it." He gets one of the truisms of our time: everyone is a publisher. The Fresh York Times is a publisher, Geico is a publisher, Gail Collins is a publisher, Seth Godin is a publisher, Sweet Teez with its awesome candies in Larchmont, NY, is a publisher, and you as a writer, poet, clown-for-hire, or whatever, you - too- are a publisher. What's more you are a writer, an editor, and a producer. Dignan "gets it," and he explains some of the pain (and opportunities) of today's Internet and social media economy. The book is relevant not just to traditional publishers but to everyone who has a little business, works as a marketer, or seeks to cultivate publicity.(I, too, am a publisher by the method - check out my Amazon profile, or Google `Jason McDonald' to search me and my online trainings.)SEEING THE POSITIVE IN THE REVOLUTIONSecond point, this book isn't all negative. It's not a rant or a rave, a Luddite rebellion versus an unstoppable Internet future. Says Larry: it's an "exciting or absolutely frightening time," depending on where you sit in the media ecosystem (large publisher with fixed costs or little fresh Mommy blogger with a successful blog), and depending on whether you are the little business that "gets it" (the restaurant that understands how SEO, Google Places, and Yelp are critical or the restaurant that still shovels cash at the Yellow Pages and wonders "what happened?"). It's an incredibly positive time for you to take advertising into your own hands via SEO, Social Media, and AdWords!CONTENT IS NOT KING - PUBLICITY IS KINGThird, Larry gets the fact that content is decidedly NOT king. SEO-structured content is King, content that Google notices is King, and even more "distribution" is King. Getting to the top of Google is the gateway to be dominant; so amazing (great) content is a important but not sufficient condition for Internet success. So action item: begin publishing, begin blogging, begin releasing news and fresh content... but do it in an SEO-friendly,structured way, leverage Google for free advertising. Do you obtain it? Obtain SEO? Obtain Social Media? Once you do, this is a terribly unbelievable time to be a publisher, little business...DO YOU GET IT?This Kindle single is a think piece, one of the best examples I have found to date of an enjoyable, thought-provoking read. We are all publishers, and Dignan conveys how this revolution is rocking media, and journalism, and as I hope I have pointed out is and will continue to rock the globe of little businesses. All little businesses are publishers now - just some "get it" and some "do not." Which are you?
I run a university class for undergraduates, who are about to graduate, and who need to understand how to create the transition from school and into the workplace. I am not an academic, but have managed and run businesses all my life... So I come at the course from a non-academic, practitioner point of view. This book is golden and it is about to become part of the course work for my students in the next semester. It is the kind of reality check that students in particular, need.A very huge number of students obtain to the final throes of their degree courses and suddenly realise that they are about to leave university with a degree in their hand that they think is the Wonka golden ticket that will obtain them a job. They are taught a lot of very useful things during their university course, but the issue is that the globe is changing fast, old business models are exploding and Schumpeter's creative disruption abounds. Digital technology means that everything can be measured down to a granular level, and that contains the individual ROI of every employee. Larry Dignan sets out the reality of media as it functions now, as an insider's insider. Anyone who wants a successful career in media should read this book - immediately! But the notice from this book has app in every industry. I created the transition, at the dawning of the internet from old media into digital, and beyond into science and engineering based business. The notice is the same - it is about developing an understanding of the method that each one of us contributes to the bottom line. As Dignan says so eloquently, "Too often journalism folks don't know where they fit in or how they look on the layoff spreadsheet.... I know what every blogger in my network is worth to me. When the cuts come it's a easy exercise - you take out the largest salary with the lowest ROI".This is a amazing book. It is priced very smartly so as to ensure large uptake by the market. I take my hat off to the author!
My BA is not in journalism, but I can't imagine paying for journalism classes in which fresh business models are not remy Aldrich (the other reviewer here) sent this Kindle single to me as a gift. It's a fast read (I finished it in a few hours) but it packs a lot of ideas and concepts. I highly recommend this for editors, reporters, and bloggers.
In this concise guide, written for aspiring or current journalists and editors, Larry Dignan outlines the key concepts for succeeding in the business of digital journalism. And he knows what he's talking about - Dignan is Editor in Chief of ZDNet. In 12 short chapters, he helps readers understand how content is best distributed online, and explores models for making cash even in a competitive field. I liked that Dignan talked about what is working, what isn't, and what isn't quite clear yet. The style is concise and conversational, with lots of bullet points and even a few links for further information. It's almost like a series of emails from an experienced colleague who is explaining what he knows to support you out. After reading the book, I discovered that the ever-helpful author is even blogging on ZDNet about the experience of publishing through Amazon Kindle Singles.
This is clearly a book that every journalist, content provider and public relations professional should read. If you work as a professional journalist, this small book provides a rare insight into the changes occuring in your industry. If you are a public relations professional (that's me most of the time), this book truly explains the change in the news industry. And, if you are a hybrid type, which some have described as me as a professional blogger, then you will obtain the book's value of how to manage your own only complaint about this format is that it's hard to purchase the book as a bonus for your mates who are not into the ebook format. Still, if you work in the news industry, I would highly recommend this book for your reading list.
learned a lot and reconfirmed a amazing deal of wedding/social ettiquette that makes for a "feel good" pleasant family event...more inclusive than exclusive...and not in a country club kind of method ere are now so a lot of sad times in our lives that we gather to grieve...weddings are a blessing and a stellar opportunity to share sweet times and to create memories... cherished ones that can be revisited on movie and in your day dreams e only thing that would have added a positive note would have been the added disk or memory stick with a timeline or spreadsheets for the laptop.
Our daughter got engaged at Christmas and we began planning her wedding. I knew things had changed A LOT since I got married 34 years ago, but I didn't really understand how much until we started this process. This book was helpful, funny, and reassuring. It really helped me understand why certain things are now done (eg, the first look before the wedding) and has helped me better accept my daughter's ideas. My daughter and I are crazy close, but this is an emotional time and this book addresses those emotions beautiful well. There aren't that a lot of books written specifically for us MOBs - this one is well-organized and simple to read. I even read several sections aloud to my husband because they were so entertaining!
This down-to-earth book has been well-appreciated in our household. Featuring primary tip and surprising interjections of humor it covers everything from your daughter saying, "Yes!" to seeing her off for her e book also addresses problems that most mother-of-the-bride books avoid talking about - same- weddings; divorced spouses; etc.
After the initial excitement of the engagement and the surprise of a wedding date only 10 months away, the shock of being the MOB set in along with the fear that accompanied my realizing that I knew NOTHING about what i should/needed to do! I am so happy that I bought this book! I especially like the well-organized, straightforward, practical delivery of info that is enhanced by hints and alerts about critical info to consider or actions to take. But it goes beyond to comments and tip that address the up and down emotional aspects of this very unique time - and there are a lot of - that are brief, focused, and oh, so welcome! The author is someone who clearly speaks from well-grounded experience. So, if you are a MOB who is feeling lost or out-of-control with all the info available in cyberspace, the sheer volume of vendors available, the costs associated with the wedding" industry", and your desire to do "the best" for your daughter - buy this book! READ this book!

And of course Max doesn't trust any man, since she divorced her cheating husband and she must protect her n these two people work to gather for the sake of the fundraiser and maybe see if they have a future together.I am volunteering to leave a review for a ARC of this book.
I bought this book while pregnant with my first child. At 5 months pregnant, I am already in a predicament with my child's father and with my own muddled life. I required some guidance...before the baby pops out and I search myself in an even deeper hole under even more distress. When I first began this book, I wasn't that thrilled about it. I wasn't too moved by the over-simplified tip and "corny" motivational lines. But I soon realized that it was only because I had possessed such a dark, sullen attitude for so long and that I grew to have fun luxuriating in the pity parties that I constantly threw for myself. Honoree's very upbeat, hyper-positive attitude was, of course, going to be a turn-off to me! Eventually, I grew into the book. I enjoyed writing my "new story" as opposed to always feeling sorry for myself and crying the same sad song like a broken record. And I learned to change my poor attitude towards MYSELF. The practise of constantly affirming myself was, at first, very unusual to me, but I grew to understand the significance of it and now I'm trying to adopt it as a everyday practise. The exercises weren't terribly hard to do because I already knew that I had issues, so it was actually quite refreshing to write them all out to finally face them. By the end of the book, I was very eager to begin my 100 Day Transformation Program. I wrote out my action plan yesterday and I started the program today and I'm more than motivated to complete it. I'm confident that this is what I required to obtain my life back on track...and in time for my kid to have a more effective, empowered, and positive mother.
This is the first book I ever ready by Honoree. It was excellent to begin with and came at the right time. Later, I was ready to obtain into the rest of the series and If Divorce is a Game, These are the Rules. But this one helped me hold my chin up when it was very hard and gave me some positive things to focus on. Thanks Honoree for writing the right things at the right time.
I loved this book and I'm excited to read the rest! As a newly single mom, I found her writing inspiring, encouraging, optimistic and very realistic which created it simple to relate to her experiences. She offers a lot of creative and helpful tip to give you direction as far as transforming your life into a unbelievable one. By the end, you'll be more confident and ready to face anything with a smile!
I’ll begin by admitting that I love the single mom and male suitor (billionaire or not- as long as he’s a amazing guy). So this story is right up my alley. Logan is a single, well off, incredibly patient, self proclaimed mama’s boy and Emily is a divorced, single mom just trying to be a amazing example for her daughter. Their perspective and well meaning yenta’s of mother’s push them together for a date in the hopes of more. This is very sweet yet frustrating story. I found myself growing rather impatient with Emily, especially in her treatment towards Logan. Though I’m all for the dominant alpha who takes no prisoners, it was refreshing to see a more laid back approach with Logan. Their story is sweet mixed with a restrained passion.I received this book for a voluntary, completely honest and non incentivized review.
What a amazing book from Claire Adams! It really shows the turmoil and fear some single parents go through when trying to dup their toes back into the dating pool. The southern mama's really package it on when trying to set their kids on a date. And with baggage that Emily brings, it is a serious struggle to see clear to a relationship. But Logan is not throwing in the towel, thank goodness! This book is full of angst, betrayl, lust, fear and love. And the emotions are flying high! Amazing read! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.Hero, Logan = 5/5Heroine, Emily = 5/5Chemistry = 5/5 = 5/5Plot = 4/5Mystery = 2/5Action = 1/5Darkness = 3/5Humor = 2/5POV = dualWould I recommend this book = yesWould I re-read this book = yesWould I read future books by this author = yes
Honoree inspires, encourages, motivates and tells it like it is in this helpful tutorial for getting through one of the most difficult and challenging transitions in a parents life. The stories of all the women who were part of the group were so helpful in realizing that you are not alone and that becoming a single parent can be the beginning of something greater than before. This book is like having the best mate you want you had going through a tough time on your nightstand! Highly recommended in a group setting and as a bonus for any single parents you know!
Honoree talks to you like an honest, down-to-earth best girlfriend in The Successful Single Mom Finds Love. I absolutely love her sense of humor and raw honesty in this book and definitely plan to read her other books. If you're a single mom and having a hard time with the dating globe and can't figure out what you're doing "wrong", look no further! Honoree is here to cheer you on and give you the tip you need to move forward in this scene of your ista

A meddling mate opens up Maxine’s eyes to the awesome man that Derek truly is and the two move past the incident to search their satisfied ending in each other’s arms.I am volunteering my honest review for an ARC copy of this book.
Logan and Emily come together because of two scheming mothers; Logan agrees to meet Emily to please his mom, but he thinks that nothing will come of it expect getting his mother to stop bothering him about it. Emily is a single mom after a divorce and isn't sure that she is ready to begin again, not with her past hurts. Emily is everything that Logan wanted and the sparks fly between them, but will a relationship started with scheming stand the try of time? A fun enjoyable read.I voluntarily received a copy for a free, honest review.
I think the Hometown Heroes series, by Piper Sullivan, just keeps getting better and better! So, the busybody, matchmakers of Tulip, decide to undertake a REAL challenge. We've got a handsome, single, ER doctor, Derek Cahill, who has a bit of a reputation as a man whore. Then, there's Maxine Nash. Max is a single mother, and a caterer, who has not good track record with men, and has no interest in seeing if there are any nice guys out there - EVER. The matchmaker's place their heads together, and decide FOR Maxine, "that it's time." The stars all line up, to help the matchmakers, with Derek in charge of the Fall Ball for the Hometown Heroes, and Max, who happens to own Tulip's only catering business. The attraction is there, but Max not only doesn't wish to fall for Derek's charms, she doesn't wish to give into the demands of the matchmakers. Amazing luck with that, Maxine! With the eighth book, of the Hometown Character series, "Dr.'s Orders," you can expect drama, angst, a fair bit of meddling, humorous situations, witty banter, child cuteness, and steamy . A charming read. I received this book as an ARC from the author, and I volunteered this review.
If it is a really unbelievable android game I really like it but the issue is is that I really like the android game it's because that on my phone my phone touch screen is not good I can't touch anything properly because of my touchscreen and that's why I can't even obtain past the one level but it's not about the android game it's about my phone which is so stupid annoying and I want I could obtain a fresh phone but I guess this is just the Method It Is
When I purchased this book, I'd just become a single mom. Desperate for any info that was relevant to single moms and written by someone who'd been in the trenches, I took the plunge after reading Honoree's Blog, The Successful Single Mom. All I can say is thank God for caring, generous women who share their own lives and the sorrow, pain and triumph they endured to support the rest of us avoid as a lot of of the pitfalls they faced. From her clear understanding of how one feels when going through a divorce, to feeling the fear that you won't be enough for your child/children, to an action plan to getting on with your life in a sane, successful way--Ms. Corder walks the walk she talks. If it weren't for her book, and, the Amazing LORD, I don't know what I would have done. Now, a few short years later, I'm a living effect of her strong advice--and am proud and happy to write this review. Obtain this book. Obtain the series. You won't regret the price, the progress or the blanket of hope Honoree Corder wraps around you until you can stand on your own strength!
