This is the most insane thing I've heard this week.
Are people so desperate to have a blog they will let a computer write it for them?
What happened to the expression of oneself?
What happened to the need to practice to perfect one's skills?
What happened to pride in one's own accomplishment?
What happened to use your brain to create content and complete it even if it stinks?
Guess I'm from the old school.
A reader asked me this morning that since they were having trouble coming up with content for a blog, should they use AI?
I wanted to scream.
I told them that writing with AI stinks.
Our phones can write messages, and now AI can write blogs for us. Pretty soon, AI will have our babies for us.
We bloggers who, through blood, sweat and tears, have muddled through with content, some good, some bad, but genuine, can just get wiped out.
And will that AI content be fascinating to read, and will it meet all the SEO clicks necessary to get ranked at the top of the google bot lineup?
Yeah, I know; why do we bloggers blog?
Why does a muskrat guard his musk?
Because it's his, he appreciates it and wants to preserve it and share it with others. Presumably, the Creator didn't give him his musk for his olfactory senses alone.
This brings me to a project I've been working on.
Does it smell like musk? I don't know.
I need to look into this miraculous programming of the subconscious mind. We all know it can help or hinder us, for since it is a recorder, it gives back what we have put into it. Or what has been programmed into it by others.
We want control of it, and since the fear of poverty is the number one fear, even above the fear of illness, or death, talking about money is an excellent place to begin.
It isn't spiritual to talk about money, say some.
It's a hot button, say others.
People will turn off if you talk about money.
I don't think so.
I think money is on our minds, whether people have it or don't, and everybody needs at least some of it.
I'm talking about how one's mind sets them up for a certain level of wealth.
This Money Talk began as a Newsletter, and then I took it down, and the next thing fell into place. I listened to a presentation on how we ought to write a course. Everyone has an experience or information, unlike others, that can be entertaining, fun, or beneficial. And we ought to share it.
I chickened out a few times, for while this writing fell into place, it also fell apart. But then that's my style of writing. I put it back together again and named it "Money Talk."
The Hawaiians have a phrase called "Talk Story," which means to catch up or discuss something, and sometimes talk story can go on all night. I first heard that phrase from the building inspector, who offered several options on getting our Tiki room approved for a permit. She told my husband and me to "Talk Story."
Here we're talking money.
I'm mentioning it now because I'm releasing Money Talk this coming Tuesday, August 23, 2022.
And I'm not putting this course of 8 chapters, 8,999 words, out indiscriminately, only to people who think they might benefit from what I offer, or are willing to gamble. It will come as an attachment in your email file. So, I will need your email address.
I'm charging 12 bucks, cheap for clearing your private streams—as muskrats, like beavers can do.
The Free Introduction will come out on Tuesday.
Tell me what you think.
Thanks once again for joining me. I appreciate you.
What makes a King out of a slave?
Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave?
Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk, in the misty mist or the dusky dusk?
What makes the muskrat guard his musk?
Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder?
Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder?
Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot? What puts the “ape” in apricot?
What have they got that I ain’t got?
