I was HERE

“Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.” – Felix Gonzales-Torres

When we think of human needs we think in terms of hunger, cold, thirst, the need for shelter, or for human connection.

Something like that.

We don’t think that we have this paradoxical relationship with death… our own brevity scares us so much that we want at least a small part of us to endure… we want to stand at the edge of the abyss and shout out at the darkness that our own mortality will not diminish our light…

We also feel most alive when closest to death. Continue reading

Life is War

“The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God’s paradise given on earth, is to fight a losing battle – and not lose it.”

Life is a war.

You have to fight to get what you want, you have to fight to become the person you want to be. You have to fight to put food on the table, to be fit, to accomplish goals, to take care of your body.

The hustle, as they say, never ends.

Of course, you might be inclined to use one of life’s many crutches: to have someone else take care of your needs, to dream of retirement, to dream of winning the lottery or reaching Heaven. Continue reading

What are reblogs?

Well..

I’d call them trailers for blog posts.

Let’s say you write a blog post. So, I choose a short snippet of that post (usually the first lines) then add a link to your post. I put this on my blog.

This way, over 140,000 people get to see this short preview. Those who want to read more, click on the link and go to your blog.

It’s a way to gain exposure.

The Winner Stands Alone

“People only give value to a thing if they have, at some point, been uncertain as to whether or not they’ll get it.”
― Paulo CoelhoThe Winner Stands Alone

I often say that it’s the struggle that pleases us, not the victory. That we must fight to get what we want, and that what we do not fight for never lasts.

We often forget about the sacrifices we must make to get what we want. We focus on what we are, what we are not, on what other people say or think or do. We focus on the tools we need, on funds, on whether or not others believe in us. We focus on the reward, on the journey, on the setbacks and failures. We focus on everything but this: Continue reading

Sponsors for 2020: LAST SPOT

Hi guys,

As you probably know, I am a full time blogger, which means that I make my living through my blogs.

That being said, I am setting up a budget for 2020, and selling advertising space for the entire year at a heavy discount.

If you become a sponsor for 2020, you will get:

  • A reblog per month for the entire year (12 reblogs in total)
  • A sponsored post per month for the entire year (12 sponsored posts)
  • You will be listed as sponsor on my blog

The cost? Well, usually, 12 reblogs would cost at least 720 dollars if purchased separately. The sponsored posts? Add another 360 dollars. That’s 1,080 dollars if you were to purchase a reblog and a sponsored post each month.

But what if you purchase all of these right away by becoming a sponsor for 2020?

Well, the cost would be only $349.99.  Today only, the price is $249.99. That’s it. Yup. Today only, you pay $249.99 for an entire year of advertising, and save over 75%.

Isn’t that a great deal?

If you want to become a sponsor for 2020, help me keep this blog alive, and also get more readers, you can purchase the last spot left on my e-store here.

As usual, payments are secured via PayPal.
