The Capital M

In the future, you will find posts with links to or on my blog. I joined this affiliation in the hope of being able to cover the cost of my blogs.

What does this mean for me personally?

By clicking on the links – and making purchases or signing up yourself – I earn a percentage of the purchase made (about 8-15%).

What does this mean to my readers?

Not much except that I will from time to time publish posts with links to superhero clothing and/or merchandise. As you will see, I will only link to stuff that is related to my blog. And now, you can help me make some money 🙂

In addition to my affiliation with shareasale, I also added a Paypal button to my blog where you can donate any amount you find appropriate for the quality of the content I provide.

I will continue writing reviews and recommendations on this blog, and post my photographs over at

Day Eleven: Make a Prompt Personal

I decided to take this over to my photography blog. I like to take part in Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. This time, the theme is “Optimistic,” and here is my take on it.

Day Twelve: Increase Your Commenting Confidence

For Day Twelve, we were to read six posts written in response to the same prompt, and leave comments on at least two of them. Here’s the six posts in response to the “Optimistic” photo challenge I liked:

And a Plus One by hefeedsthebirds as I really liked the merging of inspirational quotes and original photos.

Day Thirteen: Try (Another) Blogging Event

I decided to take part in the Music Mondays Challenge. You can find my entry here.

Day Fourteen: Extend Your Brand

I already have a Twitter account that is linked to this blog. I also have a private account that I use more often and that is actually displayed here. You can find it in the widgets section on the right side of my blog. On the one hand, I’d like to write more on my “official” Twitter account. On the other hand, I’d like to concentrate on writing entries for this blog first. So yeah, we’ll see how this develops in the future.

Blogging 201: Day 7 (Femme Friday Event)

Our assignment for today is to create a recurring blogging event on our site.

I submitted the following event proposition to The Daily Post:

Femme Friday is about posting something about women each Friday. This may be a photo, a short story, an essay, a poem, art, or whatever strikes your fancy. You can introduce a woman who inspired you in some way, or talk about developments in the struggle for equality, write a story about a female protagonist or a feminist topic, create art to promote female creativity etc. You decide how you want to interpret your version of Femme Friday. The only requirements are that is has to be about women and that it has to be posted Fridays. Be creative!

As I already stated in my first post for Blogging 201, one of my goals is to have a weekly post concerning women. So the idea for a blogging event came to my mind easily enough. Wouldn’t it be great if a lot of people took the time to blog about women? Focus at least once a week on something a woman achieved? On Friday every week, I would like you to think about a woman who inspired you, who you consider important, and to tell your readers about her and what you think makes her special. Tag with “Femme Friday” so that everyone can find your posts easily. I’m looking forward to everyone’s ideas.
