Facing reality is better

Recent posts have been LOTS about facing some things squarely which also settled some things, and is about problem solving. My three main blogs really are focused on solving various problems, like Some Math is focused on math, and Lost in Commentary is on politics, while this one the sky is the limit. And I had Beyond Mundane working on figuring out how to proceed with my new blog which is actually commercially focused, so I called it Seriously Commercial.

And the blog worked through questions raised in other areas, which pushed back to the other blogs to settle certain things where had not been clear. Will not go over again as the recent posts cover.

Bit of promotion here, as a recent post on my new blog covers three areas of attention: Public, Personal and maybe Press.

This blog is getting ready I think to going back to the usual, and yes I talk about my blogs as if they have personality as it's more fun! Also helps me keep things straight.

In the past the three main blogs worked together ALL the time, as I thought that was the way things should work, and routinely promoted each other. Now they just don't.

Turns out there's lots of theory as to why. But that theory is given across them, as I talk a lot about promotion and followers and social media, oh, mainly on this one. So I guess that theory is here.

Am more into focusing on labels, instead of giving links. Also like to suggest search!

Is SO cool when you have that option to just suggest people use web search and that can work with your content.

For instance you can search: Beyond Mundane promotion

And of course just did it after typing and looks like worked ok, for me.

Web search can be so individual though, and LOTS of posts did remember to label. The label is below this post. Can just click on it.

Chasing dreams too

For years I focused on simple discovery, admittedly wanting a major result of my own, where I had decided as a teenager back in the 1980's that I could achieve something big. Scanning possible areas I was tempted to go into fiction writing focusing on writing a great American novel, but was concerned that evaluation was too subjective from others. After some thought I decided that in mathematics I could rely on objective evaluation. I was 18 years old.

Now 29 years later, have gone more meta. With active discovery behind me, found my curiosity still piqued by innovation but do not want to be stuck in an area. With the label meta innovator I also give myself freedom to consider innovation wherever I find an interest in it.

Am really glad for those objective assessments as a teenager though. As human beings we are so competitive and who knows if I could have written a great novel or not, but now I know for sure I could have had a fight to get it recognized if I did. We are only now coming to grips as a species with how much of what we thought we knew of so many people was faked to preserve a certain point of view, deliberately excluding vast categories based on race, ethnicity and gender among other arbitrary things not relevant to reality.

Good news is the history is still available, so can still learn of people who were not properly cheered in their times so that others could take all the credit, who can still get a belated honor as humanity learns, more.

Always amuses me when people talk about chasing your dreams whatever they may be, because I DO agree, but some are best to maybe quietly nurture, especially if to succeed you will change your entire world in some way.

Like what if they knew for you to succeed would change their lives too? Better be a good dream then, eh? Is not like you're asking for permission.

Now am focused on the meta of knowledge itself and glad for dreams that pushed the notion of impossible out of my mind. Older and wiser am glad for what I did not know then, so I tried where I might not have, if knew better, and greatly appreciate the knowledge gained along the way.

Yeah, go chase your dreams and see where they take you. Worry not about recognition, or what others may believe or not, as long as you focus on good, look to benefit others as well as yourself, and have the fortitude to face challenges that will come.

Now am focused on the science of entertainment for practical reasons. I want better.

Is so much more fun and relaxing too, than looking for something so brilliant it will in some way help make a world shine a little brighter.

Entertainment? That's just so much more about fun.

Understanding possibility works better

Sharing things public on the web is just fun for me, but also would at times wonder, and notice others of course who make TONS of money on the web. And there were times through the years when would wonder, how can I? And am I messing up some way with how am doing things?

It can mess with the fun if you have vague ideas that maybe you're being wrong with sharing as you do, especially if you get evidence of attention around the globe. Which is why I am glad I worked as hard as I did with figuring out things like how people make money.

And I worked on figuring out social media.

Where have tired of linking to things in posts and discovered you can find with Google search, usually. Or at least I can when I test. Like search: Beyond Mundane money flows

The other one on social media am not sure what search works best. But gist of it is, I noticed that BIG accounts on social media had an entertainment aspect, even if not in entertainment versus an importance aspect. Like government accounts could be HUGELY important but not very entertaining, and have low follow numbers. Weirdly enough though, my opinion based on my analysis was that it was how entertaining within that social media environment, so someone could be VERY entertaining on Instagram and less on Twitter, and account size would be HUGE on Instagram and not much to note on Twitter.

But what did it mean to be entertaining?

So I wondered about that and what entertainment is.

And THERE you should be able to find with search: Beyond Mundane entertainment

Didn't work as well as I thought it should when I just tried though. And have to emphasize talking about searching in Google, which luckily is the dominant one, as I don't get what I want in others when I've tried. Though note lately rarely bother except to see if things have changed.

Through it all have felt good to have answers that work for me! Does not make them correct. But if they work for others then I can gain confidence in them that way too.

For me my ideas are used daily now as I work hard to understand my world, and new possibilities.

Which is definitely needed as yeah, do need to make money, some way. And I think good thing is people support that at least. Where to me with SO much new that came at us so fast, it's no surprise can be stumbling around trying to figure that one out. Still wonder often at the people who seemed to get it quickly. How?

Public can watch major corporations still struggling on the daily to SURVIVE.

For so many of us, so many questions raised with so much change that came so quickly.

But am glad of path have taken. I'd rather know as best I can. And think have figured much out.

Where no longer feel cheated about anything. And am no longer worrying about how I share, except to share well. And no longer am anxious about my social media numbers.

Though am looking in places at being more entertaining to get bigger numbers, but that's hard!

Knowing the theory does not change the effort needed for certain things. Just makes it more clear what is needed.
