Author: admin, 26.04.2015. Category: Positive Thought For The Day

However, from the opening preview of the Warcraft 2016 movie, I knew I was in for a rough time. And yet…and yet there’s enough here that we could have gotten a compelling story with Orcs vs.
The Orcs are fleeing a dying home yet are commanded by Gul’Dan, a warchief corrupted by the Fell.
The mages fear the Fell as a corruptive, unstoppable magical force, and when it shows up, they’re off to figure out where it came from and why. I get trying to give the Orcs and humans equal plotting: You can’t care for both sides if you don’t.
Making viewers care about monsters would have been awesome, but it’s just so hard to do that when we only focus on a few of them, and at least two of those are evil. Khadgar is the only saving grace to be found, the runaway wizard who finds himself in way over his head.
And then there is Garona (more like Groan-a (see what I did there?)) who is a half Orc, half human, and despised by both.
She ruined every scene she was in, and I’m not going to fully blame the actress for that either. Despite being a bogged-down mess with some bad characters, Warcraft 2016 isn’t without its merits. Like I said, you can’t break the attachment I have to this series, problematic film or not. The magic too is wonderful, bombastic and everything you’d expect from a video game, and it’s not anything I’ve ever seen on the big screen before. My experiences with the Warcraft lore did help squeeze a lot more love out of this flick than perhaps was warranted. At the end of the day, Warcraf 2016 is a problematic movie with a few things going for it and a lot of heart to boot. Warcraft is a good bad movie, and its biggest fault is that it could have been a good great movie. I'm going to interrupt my normal stream of shitty poetry and long-winded book reviews for this quick PSA: My good friend Thomas Rakowitz has put out his first album titled The Musings of Balance. Now, this is important to you because almost all of my writing improvs--that shitty poetry I mentioned earlier--are done to Thomas' music. He's inspired a lot of work, and his music has been the background of a lot of my editing sessions. I should also mention that he has limited physical copies left, and if you ask nicely, he might sign one before sending. And hell, while I'm here: He's also working on a video game covers album, all of which can be found on his Soundcloud page. With the exception of the Terminator flicks, I prefer my time travel to be more on the comedic side. But here’s the cold, hard truth about our heroine: Her two biggest flaws are she’s a bit of an alcoholic and she’s a bit socially stupid.
She’s also very stoic, and while the book tries to play this off as a negative at points, it only ever feels like a net gain on her behalf.
I really want to upsell the front half of this book though, with its silly drama, crazy cast of characters, and few choice sex scenes that are darn well written, if not a little fictitious in tenacity.
Without hitting any spoilers, the novel tries to create some very strong, very tonally inconsistent drama between Maxwell and another main character. From there on out, all of the drama around Maxwell comes off as fake, like the characters aren’t acting like they should. And hell, that wouldn’t be so much of a problem if there were a point to it, but Maxwell doesn’t suffer all that much.
J Patrick Allen’s Dead West: West of Pale is a combination I’m not sure I’ve seen before, pairing urban fantasy—magic, monsters, and myth—with a more western setting. Charlie’s father is murdered by some kind of river monster, and not one of the nice kinds either. When Sam Clayton is found though, we start getting answers, and that’s where things get a bit dull.
I think part of the problem is that Dead West relies heavily on common folklore, and it doesn’t really do much with it that we haven’t seen before.
There are also a pretty notable amount of typos, wrong words used, or outright missing words.
Honestly, Dead West: West of Pale reminds me of The Girl With Ghost Eyes in almost every way. I’ll do what I always do in these kinds of books then: tell you to go read the sample on Amazon. SPOILER WARNING: This is a hard novel to talk about without divulging some plot and thematic details. I’ve always liked the idea of large-scale unreliability in stories, though my experience with them is few and far between. Oh, and if you try to escape, they’ll shove you on a raft and float you out into the middle of the ocean with nothing to eat except some plants that make you hallucinate.
Kayle Jenner lives in one such commune, and unlike most, his memories are somewhat complete. These questions become Kayle’s main fear as he journeys to find his son, though the reader quickly becomes concerned with bigger questions about reality itself.
While Kayle rightfully frets about his son and missing wife, we are left wondering how sane he truly is and what kind of supernatural being is affecting the world.
It’s a wonderful setup that turns The Raft into an untrustworthy soup with way more questions than answers. The Raft is written in the first-person past perspective, with Kayle telling his story (which is actually a fourth level of unreliability now that I think of it); however, the novel doesn’t confine itself to just Kayle, nor does it always care about his story.
Each story ends with Kayle asking a question, and each time he’s given a little piece of a thematic puzzle. Towards the late middle of the novel, we begin getting some answers, though I didn’t like them much at first. In that way, The Raft is probably the first book I’ve read with what a video game would call replayability. I know not everyone will appreciate a dark-as-hell book that plays with your mind, but if that mix sounds enjoyable, then you really have to pick this book up. The opportunity to read The Stumps of Flattop Hill by Kenneth Kit Lamug came like most of my review opportunities come: an emailed request. The Stumps of Flattop Hill is a haunted house story, and one that is actually pretty creepy at points. Though perhaps the best part with the text itself is how it’s not afraid to be artistic in its own right. I also have to wonder how appropriate the whole thing is for young readers, but then, I always enjoyed a creepy story when I was a kid (my neighbor introduced me to the Alien franchise at a very young age, so that’s probably his fault). Honestly, my one complaint with the whole thing–and it is sadly a big one–is in the ending itself. I’ve read others say it’s supposed to be an open ending, one for interpretation, but I’m not sure I agree.
It is of course possible that I just haven’t paid enough attention to the pictures, but I’ve also read through the thing three times now. The House of Flattop Hill is an enjoyable 40 pages with some great artwork and visually appealing writing.
It’s the first book in a new arc, not a series, meaning the characters have had three other novels to establish themselves, their personalities, and their back stories.
That being said, the first chapter of Edge of Worlds is such a poor introduction that I’d have been lost regardless of my knowledge of the previous books. Edge of Worlds takes place during a time period where most of the world hasn’t been fully explored, and that opens up limitless possibilities.
Sadly, I do think Edge of Worlds is more of a world-building novel than a character-building novel. This viewpoint extends to almost everyone, because when you have a ship filled with fifteen or so more people, you just don’t have the time to juggle them all properly. I do realize that this viewpoint would probably be very different had I started with book one. The pathway up the mountain was smooth as glass and white as beach sand, with sea shells of all sizes and colors covering the its rocky face. When they were nearing the top, Rain decided to inch close to the edge of the path and look down. The top of the mountain flattened out into a small, smooth platform that was bursting with color. Before Rain could say anything, ask the moon just exactly what was going on, her boat changed. Rain and the talking cat began walking towards the taller of the two mountains, which bathed the surrounding land in a cooling shadow. Before Rain could say she was sorry, a strong gust of wind passed over her head, causing the cat to sigh and say another bad word.
As soon as they stepped through the final patch of tall grass, the world became alive with sounds and movement, as if someone had just turned on a light switch. They started walking through the witch’s village, Lana staring straight ahead and ignoring all of the eyes upon them.
When one woman pointed at her and whispered to another, Rain turned her gaze towards the ground.
As soon as they were by the two large rocks, the sounds and laughter returned to the village. Then the cat was latched onto thin air and growling like a lion, its fangs sinking into an invisible foe.
Rain turned around and saw an empty path, though when she looked at the ground, she could see footprints advancing, pressing against the now glass pathway and cracking it. Rain blinked and saw a purple-and-grey streak zip by, towards the frozen flower blocking her path. Rain was suspended for so long she thought she might have accidentally learned how to fly, and then she hit the ground. Here's chapter 2 of my ongoing little short story project set to the EP my friend--the very talented Thomas Rakowitz--put out a few months ago titled, Streams Volume 1. The cat said another bad word, this one much worse than the last one, and Rain turned to leave.
Instead of leaving, the cat started licking Rain’s foot, melting the frost with its tongue. Then she heard the crunch of a foot stepping on ice, and the world turned into a din of screams. Ideally I’d do this as one quick story, writing until the EP ended in a stream-of-consciousness style, but this isn’t an ideal world. The sky was cloudless and a piercing shade of blue, and Rain couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for her adventure. So she had grabbed her Lilo and Stitch backpack, filled it with cookies and juice boxes, and set off, following the little stream that ran through the edge of her family’s farm.
The stream gurgled around a little bend as it dropped half a foot in what was easily the prettiest waterfall in all of Oklahoma, and Rain decided to take her shoes off and soak her feet in the cold water. Rain nodded because her map wouldn’t lie—she had drawn it after all, and she wouldn’t lie to herself—and stood up. For Rain, this adventure was more than just her desire to see the sea, though that was a big part of it. When the voice made a soft, hacking sound and a grey cat with purple stripes walked out of a tall patch of grass, it’s ringed tail standing tall and proud, Rain forgot all about the angry adult.
The back copy of Lustlocked by Matt Wallace reads, “The Goblin King (yes, that one) and his Queen are celebrating the marriage of their son to his human bride. Lustlocked takes place in a top-secret kind of kitchen called Sin du Jour, where they prepare meals for the elite magical folks—or that’s what I gather. Sadly, the package that I really wanted to like begins to falter at the writing style itself. Then a name leaps at her from the shadows of her own mind like a tiger, and Lena almost recoils in the same way. He’s the man who explained that expectation as if he were asking for a cup of sugar from a neighbor.
Because as someone who loves the overtly offensive humor of Kaptara, the kinds of debauchery going on in this book really should have had be rolling. Before I start wrapping this up, I should mention that my copy of Lustlocked came with a short story within the Sin De Jour world. It sucks when my big complaint is how a story is written, because it’s something I have to put up with for the entire package, and because authors should be allowed to experiment and try different styles. So take a look at that above piece of text, and if you’re okay with that kind of writing, consider giving this one a look.
I liked it then though, and I wasn’t going to just let five hours worth of work sit there like that.
The okay-sounding electric guitar is now an acoustic guitar–actually two of them, each sounding a little different from each other–and the organ is now a ney flute.
Like the last song I made for Vitrerran, there was a nice amount of collaborating at work here.
And like all my other songs, this one has a nod to A Song of Ice and Fire, The Red Viper being a character from the desert city of Dorn. However, I did spend almost an entire year aiming for publication, in both seeking out an agent and sending my manuscript to publishing houses (jury is still out on those since they take so darn long to get back to you), and it might be helpful to others to detail some of that information here. My goal with this post is to offer a comprehensive guide on agenting, what you’ll need, where to start, etc.
Of the three agents that read my manuscript, none of them had any negatives to say on it, and one of them even said it was darn well written! Stephanie Meyer likes the word, “chagrin.” I know this because I’ve read her books and lost count of how many times that one popped up. It’s a complete and utter pain in the ass to write, and if you do it wrong, you’ll get nowhere. Before you begin your query letter, you absolutely must read through QueryShark to get a big sense of what to do and what not to do. Animals are migrating north, slaves are turning against their masters, the devout are desecrating temples, and the moon is missing from the sky.
It’s hard to care about the living world when the door to escape the afterlife is almost closed.
Kitgazka has lived and died eight times, and every death has ended the same: a dark forest, monsters made of fire, and a small door, shining far off in the distance.
So for the last 500 years, Kitgazka has roamed the world, hoping to find the place where life and the afterlife meet, but still the door remains hidden.
Accompanied by a naive gerbil who wants to be a knight and his terrible squire, Kitgazka finally feels answers within reach.
Little does Kitgazka know that he’s walking into a warzone, and the answers he’s craved for the last 500 years are more terrible than he ever imagined. THE NINTH LIFE is 132,100 word heroic fantasy novel with touches of high fantasy near the end. The point of RankBrain is to take the term a user enters into Google search and interpret what the searcher actually means. After finding keywords and phrases, it’s recommended that you search for them in Google search.
Content needs to pass the people test if it is going to be helpful to your business, website and SEO. RankBrain is not only learning about how machine language or artificial intelligence (AI) works, or about trying to find ways to manipulate as many ranking factors as much as possible. After you have created your piece of content on whichever topic it needs to be about, it is crucial to ensure that you study the analytics of it afterwards. As with all of the other Google updates that have been done over the years, RankBrain focuses on providing the best possible quality for end users of Google – in other words, the searchers of information. An oversimplification, maybe, but a great way of looking at the social sphere online and gaining some perspective on the true scope of its worth. Here we have two well informed, educated authorities on the topic of social media giving us their two competing theories about its place in modern society.
I remember reading a news article last year about how a study found that people who post inspiration quotes on their social media page were more likely to be unintelligent.
Whatever the original intentions of that flawed study, there is no denying that experts quotes are insanely popular on social media.
Being such a fantastic form of engagement, and a way to increase your visibility on social platforms, how can you start to really take advantage of it? Occasionally you will come across a great quote from one of your favorite blogs, or a video interview, and you should feel free to share those. Two other great quote sites are Quotery and Brainy Quote, both of which offer reliable original sources, and an extensive database. Visual quotes are even more shareable than text ones, and as a rule you should try and create more of them. If not, you can turn to generators like Recite (for simple graphics with a watermark), or Pixteller (for slightly more advanced). The first is great for straight quotes that are placed against basic backgrounds like a piece of paper and pen. If you want to start making different kinds of graphics that use visual quotes (like infographics), check out Canva. Have you seen those posts floating around that show Albert Einstein quoting Lil Wayne lyrics, or George Washington telling you not to believe everything you see on the internet? Fake Quotes From Famous People is a great Tumblr page that sadly hasn’t been updated in a year. John Oliver launched his own fake quotes site called Definitely Real Quotes in a bid to shame politicians during an increasingly hostile (and ridiculous) US presidential caucus. Finally, I would say my favorite method of getting expert quotes to use on social media is also the most beneficial to you: through expert interviews.
You are probably always looking for new content, and by interviewing an expert you will get plenty.
Do you have any tips for using expert quotes to engage on social media with new and current followers? So if you’re falsely reporting your competitors, don’t be surprised when Google starts ignoring you! A couple months ago, Google told us that they keep track of users who send really good spam reports. Recently, Gary Illyes seems to have confirmed that the opposite is true as well: users who repeatedly submit false reports in an effort to attack their competitors are more likely to be ignored. The tool will score your mobile friendliness, mobile speed, and desktop speed out of 100 and provide specific tips for how to improve each of them. What would you do with outdated content or content that has no perceivable benefits to your site?
Whether SEO is dead or tales of its death are only exaggerated has been debated for years now.
On Cre8asiteforums, Kim has an interesting thread about the difference between thinking you know what customers want and actually asking them what they want.
Webmasters and UX professionals might think they know what a customer wants – but their solution is not always the one that the customer would prefer. Location, location, location Location settings are often overlooked after the initial campaign setup. They also allow us to target by demographics, which lets us select the household income tier we want to target. To properly leverage location settings for e-commerce businesses, you need to first think about your products and your audience. I prefer to air on the side of more reach to start because customers can come from a wide variety of regions and until you have definitive data to back up decisions, it’s best to avoid excluding too much based on hunches. After finding our best converting locations, we went in and added bid modifiers to make sure we were bidding higher in those locations. Location-based businesses such as amusement parks, schools, car dealerships and car repair shops have their own unique ways of targeting location.
To get more out of radius targeting it is a great idea to have a bullseye-like pattern around the target area.
After completing the radius targeting, you can implement bid modifiers in increasing increments starting with the lowest bid modifier at the furthest distance and working up to the largest bid modifier the closer you get to your location. With this arrangement, you will bid more on the customers closest to your business location, allowing you to have a higher chance of procuring the customer.

Internet Marketing Ninjas Club Band The other day I was thinking that in my over 17 years in business, I believe that our current Ninja team and our services are like the Beatles Sgt Peppers Album.
Although having a high organic CTR is crucial, having positive website engagement metrics is even more critical. One important note before we get started: Please don't focus too much on the absolute bounce rate and time on site figures discussed in this article.
In 2011, Google announced a new option that allowed us to block domains from appearing in our search results.
Although that feature is no longer with us, we know it was based on whether (and how quickly) you bounced back. Does Bounce Rate Impact Organic Position?OK, let's get the official Google line out of the way. Well, it seems like for this particular keyword niche, as long as you have a low bounce rate (below 76 percent) then you're more likely to show up in positions 1 through 4. Image via Fox.But if there's no free beer to be had, most (if not all) of that traffic will bounce right back. So I believe Google is measuring dwell time (which is proportional to bounce rate) to check whether websites getting high CTRs actually deserve it and if the clicks are indeed valid, or if it's just click bait. One other question this discussion obviously raises is: do higher rankings cause higher engagement rates, as opposed to the other way around?
Well, unless you work at Google (and even then!) you may never know all the secrets of Google's algorithm. Regardless, improving user engagement metrics, like bounce rate, will still have its own benefits. Does time on site impact organic position?Now let's look at time on site, another metric we can measure that is proportional to dwell time. Interestingly, you get no additional points after you cross a minimum threshold of time on site.
If you can get people really excited about clicking on something, that excitement typically carries through to a purchase or sign-up.
On average across all industries, site-wide conversion rate for a website is around 2 percent (the donkeys), while conversion rates for the top 10 percent of websites (the unicorns) get 11 percent and above. Remember, conversion rates are a very important success metric because you get the most value (you actually captured leads, sold your product, got people to sign up for your newsletter, or visitors did whatever else it was you wanted them to do), which means the user found what they were looking for. How do you turn conversion rate donkeys into unicorns?Image via Fox.The way you don't get there is by making little changes. Ask yourself: Why in the world are 98 percent of the people who see your offer not taking you up on it?
Image via Fox.What can you offer that will resonate enough that +10 percent of people would be excited about signing up for it or buying it on the spot? For example, for my own company, five years ago our primary offer was to sign up for a trial of our software.


Then I had an epiphany: Why don't I just grade people's accounts without having them do a trial of our PPC management software, and just give them a report card? Image via Fox.Rather, your goal is to bias them so in the future they'll do a search for your product.
Facebook and many other vendors have conducted lift studies that prove that Facebook ads impact clicks and conversions you'll get from paid and organic search. Interest-Based Targeting to reach people who are likely to search for the things you're selling. Demographic Targeting to reach people who are likely to search for the stuff you're selling, maybe within the next month. Behavioral Targeting to reach the people who buy stuff that is related to the stuff you're selling.
You want to make sure the people who gave you a look to see what your site was about never forget you so that subsequent searches always go your way. Remarketing greatly impacts engagement metrics like dwell time, conversion rate, and time on site because people are more familiar with you, which means they're more likely to be engaged with you for longer.
These are huge numbers for a minimal investment (display ads average around $10 for 1,000 views). It's your job to convert or squeeze as much money as you can from people who are already in the market for what you sell.
I believe that terrible engagement metrics will lead to a death spiral where your site gets less clicks, less leads, less sales, and even lower rankings. Obviously better CTRs, higher engagement rates, and improved conversion rates lead to more leads and sales.
I would prioritize click-through rate and conversion rate (or engagement) optimization at the very top of the most impactful on-page-SEO efforts.

I played the old RTS games when I was in middle school, and I got swallowed into the giant world of Azeroth via World of Warcraft during high school and college.
He’s destroying everything in his path, from the good to the bad, and has done away with honor long ago. Their cities are being raided and burned from underneath their noses, and what’s worse, the Night Elves, Dwarves, and other races who are supposed to be allies aren’t helping. Fans of the lore and video games know that Azeroth is not a black-and-white continent—the humans are just as capable of evil as the monstrous Orcs—but this isn’t a video game.
They’re everything they should be: Huge, honorable, slightly cartoonish, fearsome, equipped with giant weapons that border on being silly, ride big wolves, and have stupid-large shoulder armor.
Durotan is watching his fellow Orcs succumb to the Fell as they kill innocents to power the portal that will save the Orc race.
His backstory is actually pretty good despite being delivered in a chunk of exposition, and his underdog status makes it hard not to root for him.
She’s supposed to be this middle character, stuck between two sides with no real home, and while that should have been dramatic and interesting, it came across as ham-fisted and cliche. Silly mage words plus silly hand signals equals giant fireballs, portals, shields, and lightning storms. We get a handful of big, fun spells, but I'd have loved for a full on mage-vs-mage fight, with counterspells and fireballs flying from every which way as the combatants blink around and toss up temporary shields. I guess the cartoon aspects helped the studio get away with cramming more gore and blood into a PG13 movie than is necessary, but it added a lot of weight (and meat, don’t forget the meat) to the fights we get. At least a full third of it is a mess, and I’d be hard pressed to recommend this to anyone with little knowledge of Warcraft, but hell, I had some fun. There’s something about the premise that I find hard buy into, be it the crazy paradoxes or the thousands of questions that generally come with the idea of, “but if I go back in time and do this, what happens?” Give me Kung Fury instead! It primarily wants to be funny and even handwaves the bigger time travel quandaries so we don’t have to think about them ever again. Maxwell has a bunch of learning in history—the expensive, lengthy kind that will net you a job as either a professor at a fine college or the best darn McDonalds manager in this United States—and gets an invite to a very abnormal historical research facility called St.
The first bit is that history doesn’t like to be tampered with, so this job is actually very, very dangerous, and the second bit is that time-traveling terrorists exist. History does bite back as the novel quickly shows us—and just as quickly forgets about, I might add—meaning that the terrorists can’t really do anything.
It reminds me of Harry Potter in a way, where we follow Maxwell down a very bizarre rabbit hole and learn alongside her. I’ll full-on admit that she’s at least half a Mary Sue, but her sense of humor eases some of the sting of a character whose not only really smart but also solves all of her problems pretty quickly.
Normally those would be big problems, but here the first one happens mostly off screen and the second is only ever played off for laughs.
It means she can roll with the punches and deal with high-stress environments better than most. Because after the front half, Just One Damned Thing After Another takes a pretty steep dive. From one turn to the next, I could feel the author manipulating the people she had so painstakingly created, forcing them to do what the plot needed.
Maxwell does some very Mary Sue things because she’s very clever and accidents work in her favor, and we end on a high note.
It makes me question some of the characters and the writing, and that’s not exactly a good thing. There’s enough here to make me recommend Just One Damned Thing After Another, especially since I tore through it in a few days, but damn does it make some disappointing decisions.
The official time period is somewhere after the civil war, perhaps five to twenty years based on what I can quickly find, but hey, that means we’re looking at old-school rifles, pistols, and lots of travel via horses.
No, this one talks and stalks, and it’s out for Charlie because it’s owed the blood of a first born. The first leg of the book is Charlie’s terror-filled run across the United States looking for a mysterious fellow his father promised would help. He’s got few clues to go on, mostly just the name Sam Clayton and the random help of strangers, so that he manages to hike from Missouri to Minnesota and actually find Sam feels too coincidental and plot-demanded than anything else.
The pacing is maybe a little too quick at times—this isn’t the kind of book that wants to sit down and smell the roses—but it’s fun and I certainly sympathize with Charlie.
Dead West turns from a sort of horror novel into a pretty standard, “there’s monsters out there, Charlie, and people like me hunt them” affair. The spook the two first encounter is pretty fun and wraps up well enough, though you’ll probably call the mystery well before it’s solved. It’s nothing really special, falling into pretty typical young-adult first-person narration.
There are less of these in the first leg of the novel, but by around chapters eight or nine, they really start cropping up in full force. Plenty of good bits, some fun characters, and a new setting, yet both novels really just rubbed me the wrong way, and I’m left trying to figure out why. I very much recommend you stop here and pick this book up, because it’s fucking fantastic and I don’t want to ruin any of the major surprises in any way. There are one or two shorter tales I remember reading in college when studying unreliable narrators, but I’ve never actually had the pleasure of reading a full on novel with an unreliable narrator.
It was a reset, and one that turned a technologically advanced world into a listless series of communes where people amount to nothing. Kayle’s core memories span his entire life, making him more reliable than anyone else in the commune, though there are blanks and oddities that he cannot account for, such as a mysterious figure named Jack Turning.
As the novel progresses and the world grows in clarity, the questions grow in number and importance. As Kayle moves through the world, he encounters plenty of other characters who feel—perhaps supernaturally—compelled to tell them stories from their lives.
The writing is superb, and the all the vignettes within are perfectly executed in what they set out to do. Even from the get-go The Raft is dark, but as it progresses, it submerges itself into nihilism and the deep-rooted fears that come with that philosophy.
Thankfully our fourth wave of unreliability hits with such a brutal force that it resets every notion I had about the book. Strydom played with my expectations over and over again until I had no idea what was really going on. I want to go back in and see where things line up now that I know how it ends, because I think I’ll discover some amazing secrets I missed on my first go through.
As an adult without children, I don’t ever really run into them, though I’m a firm believer that kid’s fiction can and should appeal to everyone.
In this case, some of my fellow writers at WeTheNerdy recognized the name as a wonderful comic’s book artist and writer and told me to jump on this thing right away. The house on Flattop Hill has a rather dark history, one where kids venture in for untold reasons and never come out again. After being told what happens to those that go in, I’m surprised anyone would speak of the house openly at all, let alone kids in such a manor. Florence is infatuated with the place and like all haunted house stories, she ventures forth.
It’s all monochromatic, which already makes it look pretty disturbing, but combine that with some Tim Burton aesthetic, and you have yourself a winner. The story doesn’t stick to one rhyme scheme but lets the words flow more organically, though everything is in meter and there are plenty of rhymes.
I know all the words, but younger children might not; though any excuse to expand the vocabulary is a good one.
Most fairy tales aren’t exactly without their own horrors either, so this one fits in with those as far as I’m concerned. I think it’s a story I’d have had fun reading as a kid, and hell, I did have fun reading it as an adult. For those who don’t remember, I’m working on a card-based RPG with real-time elements and all other kinds of video game verbiage nonsense.
I didn’t mean to jump into another ongoing book series because the last time I did, I wound up being pretty darn confused for the first three or so chapters.
Indigo Court is a huge and densely populated place, turning the first twenty pages into an assault of over twenty different character names, a bunch of fantasy species names, and a handful of different location names.
The Raksura are shapeshifters, and in their flying forms, have very dragon-esque descriptions. We got our good guys, our bad guys, and a big, mystery city built by forerunners to compete over.
Edge of Worlds is a massive book, one with tons of different people, places, cultures, and magic. There are too many characters from start to finish, and very few get anything remotely akin to development.
Jade is just as much of a badass, and as a Raksura queen, has way more stress to deal with. I grew attached to maybe four characters, but only found Stone to be worth stressing over when the danger hit.
I’m sure the likes of Briar and Song and Merit are given a reason to exist beyond their one-sentence personalities that, now that I’ve finished the book, I can’t even remember. Chapter one can be found here, chapter two here, chapter three here, chapter four here and Thomas’s EP that inspired this project here. Rain ran her hand over a series of little shells and stopped when she touched a bright green one that was bigger than Lana. She didn’t want to bother Lana, though she wanted to tell the talking cat she was sorry about what happened. She knew she wasn’t supposed to, having seen enough cartoons to know that looking down was how people fell, but Rain also knew she couldn’t fall if she wanted to.
Rain watched the never-moving sun play off the white rock face, turning the smooth path into a bright gold. The moon was now so close that it filled the whole sky, and Rain was sure if she jumped, she would touch it. The moon was doing what her mother sometimes did: a little white lie to make things better. One second it was made of clear glass, and the next it was blue velvet, as light and piercing as the sky.
Chapter one can be found here, chapter two here, chapter three here and Thomas’s EP that inspired this project here. It was less than a mile away now, just beyond a meadow of tall grass that went up to Rain’s waist. Rain looked up, afraid the ghosts were back or something worse, and saw a flying carpet heading towards the mountain. She had seen plenty of movies with witches in them, and while most witches were evil, not all were.
She would have given the cat her last juice box, but she was also thirsty from walk and wanted it for herself.
She was pretty sure no one in their right mind would name a cat Cynthia, not when Snowball and Peanut Butter were options.
Everyone had seemed so nice a few minutes ago, but now no one was dancing or laughing anymore. Chapter one can be found here, chapter two here, and Thomas’s EP that inspired this project here. The sound of a thousand blowing gales howled behind her, the invisible monsters getting closer with each step. Rain was now so far from home she was afraid the cat might be right, that she’d never find her way back. She wanted to stretch her legs, and now that the air was warm, she was afraid the boat might melt. The stream now followed a zigzagging path through the countryside until it wound its way between a series of mountain peaks. Her mother always told her not to make friends with people who said bad words, and her mother was right.
She took her socks and shoes off again and went to put her feet in the stream, expecting the water to be cool and refreshing like it was last time. It hurt at first, and Rain winced, but soon the pain was gone and her toe was back to its normal color. Somehow, the grass in front of her was changing color, turning from a bright summer green to a bitter white.
I make it a habit to write to the music my friend Thomas Rakowitz puts out, which isn’t news if you follow this blog. It looks like I’ll be doing multiple installments for this particular story with some forethought put in place for good measure. She had been walking all morning, mostly humming to herself and skipping when the mood struck, and now she wished she had brought more snacks.
She knew that real adventurers could tell the time based on the position of the sun and moon, and since she was on one herself, she decided to try.
Her teacher said that all streams eventually lead to the sea, and Rain had always wanted to see the sea. She started humming again as birds skimmed the surface, looking for bugs and fish to eat, and checked the map she had drawn the night before. She wasn’t afraid since she was still near the Casper’s farm and knew the family very well, even if she didn’t recognize the voice.
Goblins aren’t supposed to be extra pretty people, even if I’m sure their origin in ancient European folklore disagrees with me.
There is at least one other novella in this series and probably a few short stories, meaning starting in the middle was a little rough. The whole package reminds me of Chowder meets Harry Potter meets True Blood (minus all the smut). Two of our giant cast are simple line chefs, suckered into their jobs because of some past history with the kitchen and because they need the money. There are probably six or seven people to jump around, more if you include the goblin prince and princess who actually get screen time, and I’m impressed they’re all juggled so well in such a short piece of fiction.
The novella is written in a very choppy fashion, with lots of very short, one-sentence paragraphs. It kills any flow the prose has, and honestly, it reminds me of a forum or social media post. It’s tacked onto the end and gives some introduction to a few of the characters you’ll see. I created the original draft in around five hours on little sleep, and it featured some okay-sounding electric guitar and organ. I built the basics, and my brother helped me fix a few things up, partly in pointing out which areas were horribly out of key. It’s a bit less in-your-face (and not as clever) as “When Winter Fell” or “A Storm of Sounds,” but it’s the best I managed to do without getting overly wordy. I know this because it’s 27 chapters long and I edited a chapter a day until it was complete, not because it was a huge event or anything, though it totally was.
The internet is filled with tons of resources on this, but I’m not sure all of them are what I’d like to call complete. I know this because a few agents told me this outright in ways that can only be described as rude. You can’t just finish the first draft of your book and assume it’s ready to be sent out to the world. I went through The Ninth Life five times before I was sick of looking at it, which is my barometer for, “It’s done!” You might need more drafting, or you might need less. It’s a brief blurb about your book, a brief blurb about you as an author, and ultimately, a brief blurb that tells an agent how well you can write and how well you prioritize your novel. Now on his last life, desperation sees him once again turn south, to a desert wasteland filled with bad memories, cannibalistic lizards, and an army of walking corpses. It’s an amalgamation of everything I love about the genre with direct inspiration from Brian Jacque’s Redwall series, which was my first foray into fantasy so many years ago. Although many web developers may think that this is another passing fad, this is by no means the case. Instead of formulating content focused on just 1 keyword phrase, it will now be beneficial to create content that focuses on the main keyword phrase as well as phrases related to the original keyword. You can either browse the full list online or download them to a spreadsheet to review later. On the bottom of the first page of search results, there are normally other phrases related to your original search. However, RankBrain has changed this in that it is now more important to focus on creating high quality content that incorporates a range of keyword phrases as naturally as possible instead. The reason for this is that in some cases, Google could offer searchers and opportunity to provide feedback about your website content. It is imperative that we developers and content creators be focused on the same end goals that Google is focusing on – namely, providing the best quality content in search results for searchers.
Senior Technical Writer Paula Allen and I for a candid conversation on the latest changes to the SERP and what it means for SEO.
Unsurprisingly, these claims were false, but I still found it funny and shared the article to all of my friends. But when you are actually going hunting for quotes, it is good to have a couple of sources on hand. That is where I found the two quotes posted at the beginning of this article, as a matter of fact. The latter has a Quote Of The Day feature that gives you a beautiful visual graphic with random quotes. Luckily they aren’t that hard to make, especially if you have a little knowhow on tools like Photoshop or GIMP.
I tend to alternate between the two in order to get two different types of visual quote that attract two different kind of posters. Having absolutely zero graphic design talent or knowledge myself, I am a huge fan of this graphics generator. It is a collection of fake quotes attributed to the spiritual leader, and some of them can actually be kind of funny.
You will also build yourself as an authority and source for the original quote, which you can use to promote the content you have just published. Turns out that they have policies in place for identifying bogus reports and the users who frequently submit them.
Nearly one in five spam reports are false or misleading – so of course Google has plenty of experience with separating the wheat from the chaff. You don’t require Search Console to use it, but you might have to give your email address out to receive a full report.
But if that content has gained links and seems to rank well, should you really get rid of it?
This user on SEO Chat is approaching the question from a new angle though – the relationship between agencies and clients.
If you need something, there will usually be an attentive sales person on hand to help you. It’s easy to set up targeting, but we forget about leveraging these settings to work for us. These allow us to use Places of interest such as airports, universities and other central commercial areas.
We looked at the Google Analytics report by location and found which areas sell the most products. While it may not be a direct ranking signal that's even part of Google's core algorithm, I believe CTR is an indirect signal that definitely impacts rank. What value is there in getting hundreds or thousands of people to click on your brilliant headlines if those people don't stick around for more than a few seconds? If you clicked on a result and then returned to the SERP from the website within a few seconds, Google's blocked sites feature would appear.
However, we can measure three engagement metrics that are proportional to and directionally equivalent to dwell time: bounce rate, time on site, and conversion rate.
However, if your bounce rate is higher (above 78 percent), then you're much less likely to show up in those coveted top 4 positions.
Looking at that graph, it leads me to believe that it's no accident — but in fact algorithmic in nature. Think of it more like a "check" on click-through rates within the existing algorithm that hasn't been quantified. For example, I could promise you the digital equivalent of free beer and have a ridiculously high click-through rate.
If engagement is weak on average, however, then you're more likely to be in positions 7 or lower. These metrics help Google figure out whether users ultimately got what they were looking for. While absolute conversion rates vary wildly by industry, unicorns always outperform donkeys by 3–5x regardless of industry.
It was somewhat complicated, people had to learn how to use the software, and not everyone made it through the process. That increased my conversion and engagement rates by 10x, and the gains persisted over time. If it's an unbranded search, having been exposed to your marketing materials in the past, they'll be more likely to click on and choose you now.
You can target Facebook ads at people who will celebrate an anniversary within the next 30 days.
Because you know these people will be searching for keywords relating to flowers and jewelry soon. So use remarketing to increase brand familiarity and increase user engagement metrics, while simultaneously turning the people who bounced off your site in the past into leads now. They would need to lean on a "domain-level engagement score" to fall back on in the event that more granular data wasn't available.
But I also believe that improvement in these metrics will lead to better organic search rankings, creating a virtuous cycle of even more clicks and conversions.


But if I'm right, you'll not only get more conversions, but you'll get better rankings, which will lead to more conversions and even better rankings.
Those under him only follow him out of a strong necessity, for this corrupt warchief will save the Orc race. King Llane Wrynn is faced with some tough decisions and political drama, and he doesn’t know what to do.
Each of these movie-length plots is crammed into this film to the point of bursting, turning what should have been an awesome flick into a bogged down mess with too many characters, too much exposition, and little to root or care for. It’s fine to not give both sides to this conflict, especially when one side is way more interesting than the other.
They want to stop Gul’Dan, yet doing so dooms their people to a blackened, ruined world that can no longer support life. Everything about her was terrible, from the cringe-inducing dialogue to the long bouts of exposition to the lame romance subplot from out of nowhere, and it wasn’t until the very end that she started to serve a purpose.
It’s awesome stuff, and a big reason why I want more fantasy stories of this sort brought to film. The magic was worth the price of admission, and I got to see someone polymorphed into a sheep.
There are catchy riffs, crazy solos, elements of guttural metal, and songs that will make you want to sing along even if you suck at singing and are in public and I need to stop doing that because I embarrass myself. I’d rather just laugh than accidentally scrutinize the science behind it (looking at you, Interstellar).
Events have to happen a certain way, so it’s not like they can go back in time and prevent Hitler from killing himself (hello Godwin’s law in a review).
There are plenty of characters to get to know, some fun concepts, and while there’s no real sense of danger, the levity of the book makes that unimportant.
She doesn’t struggle much through the first half of the book, but that only casually bothered me. I never got the sense of either, especially from a girl who gets drunk off of one margarita.
The character in question isn’t a saint, but what he attempts to do came so far out of left field that I lost all suspension of disbelief. It also means that the fantastical elements are a bit easier to digest by the characters, since there are no pesky cell phones and Internet to get in the way.
Each stop he makes lets the monster get closer, and on the whole, it’s all pretty darn entertaining. Sam is of course broken and haunted by a terrible past, and he’s pretty gruff and unfriendly too.
There’s a good amount of telling, and even when Charlie is being descriptive, most of the descriptions are just dull. They seem to fall away a bit towards the end, making me think the first third and last third of this novel were heavily edited while the middle was skipped. I reread what I’ve written in this review and feel like my complaints are somewhat trivial. The novel gets a bit predictable here and there, and it hits a few tropes a bit too hard for my liking, but really, there’s little wrong with it other than some bland prose.
Those that lead the communes—which remind me of a Jim Jones joint—promise to lead humanity into a new stage of evolution: A New Renaissance is coming!
The result is a series of first-person past shifts that make sense within the novel’s framework while also creating quick connections between the reader and strangers. Kayle’s story is compelling in its own right, but I never felt upset when perspective shifted to someone else because I knew I was in for a treat.
This is a bleak book, and there are times when it is outright cruel, both to its characters and the reader. Even now that I’ve finished the novel, I still don’t know what’s really real and what is imaginary.
The Raft is easily the best book I’ve read this year, and one that I’m not sure will be topped. This isn’t some spooky place owned by a creepy old and misunderstood man; kids really do vanish once they enter. There’s an elegance to the little wording present and a confidence to let actions speak louder than words. This lets the text speed up when something tense is happening and slow down when we’re tasked with simple viewing. A cracked floor is paired with the word “floor” being cracked, a leaky door with the word “leak” visually leaking down the page.
If witches with candy houses can eat children, then this horror house can make them disappear.
It’s…unsatisfying as hell, which is a problem with any story regardless of the age group it’s meant for. Maybe if there were another ten or so pages to flesh out Florence, the house, and her town; but as it stands, the story just ends poorly. What’s in the city is of course dangerous because stories are very boring when they lack danger.
Everything is handled well, with descriptions of people and places taking up just the right amount of space to paint nice pictures while not being overbearing. There are large trees so big we never find out what’s on the ground, floating islands, and a few tall mountains for good measure. Moon plays the role of our protagonist, and while he’s alright and enough of a risk-taker to be worth following around, there’s honestly not much else to say about him.
I suppose the best way I can end this review is thusly: I’ll certainly read the next book (those darn cliffhangers), and I’m tempted to go read the first three as well. I want more of this kind of large exploration, where the first page of the novel feels like a year ago by the time you hit the last. It was breathtaking, so big and bright and calm that she realized all her worrying was for nothing. Rain had reached the end of a rainbow, only instead of a finding pot of gold, she could make a wish. She couldn’t remember ever meeting the moon, but something about this reminded her of talking to an old friend, one she had once loved dearly yet sadly lost contact with. The only reason she wasn’t standing in front of her house right now was because it wasn’t possible. You aren’t hurt are you?” Rain thought back to the frozen ghosts and immediately felt awful.
Some were very nice, and she knew only a nice witch would fly on something as pretty as that carpet.
She fished it out and pushed the straw in—her favorite part—and began to sip on the fruity drink while looking at her map. It was a hidden village of small tents and fireplaces, of flying carpets and bubbling cauldrons, of people dancing and singing in big circles to strange music. Don’t let this one die on you too.” The black cat looked at Rain, shook her head, and then walked away, her tail standing straight up like a little Christmas tree. Everyone stopped what they were doing to stare, and Rain realized she was the only kid in the whole village. All around her the world was growing colder and darker, but when she finally glanced backwards, she saw empty air. Rain screamed again and put on another burst of speed, and when she blinked, she was standing in a maze of glass sculptures.
From somewhere behind her, she thought she heard a howl of pain, though she wasn’t sure if it was from the cat or one of the ghosts. Three glass flowers towered above her, their pedals as big as walls and perfectly transparent.
She wasn’t sure if time slowed or stopped as she sprinted towards the sculpture, but the world around her got colder and a frozen breath touched her cheek. She blindly reached around for something to hold onto, but her right hand only found cold, slippery ground. She could see through the floor, and it took her a few seconds to realize they were sitting on a giant glass rose pedal. The world grew warm again, and a host of pink flamingos flew over head, their numbers so big they made the entire sky look like pink lemonade.
Soon two mountain peaks were jutting out of the horizon, and not long after, they were between them. I have a map, and it would tell me if there was anything dangerous.” When she had drawn her map, she had made sure not to put anything dangerous on it. The sea was still on it, and still expertly colored in crayon, but now there were other things in the way, places and landmarks she had not drawn. Rain had never been this far from home, but she was very sure there weren’t any mountain ranges where she lived.
She tried not to let it bother her, mostly because the cat was still following her and she didn’t want it to know she was upset. When she finally crested one tall hill, following the stream upwards the whole way, she stopped. She wriggled all her toes and grinned, remembering a game her father used to play with her when she was a little kid. She knelt down and watched one patch transform right before her eyes, like someone was painting over the landscape.
Well a few months ago he put out an instrumental EP titled Streams Volume 1, and I’m only now getting to it. She considered the sun and the length of her shadow, looking back and forth, and then she checked her wristwatch.
She had seen pictures of course, some she had drawn herself (her mother had put the best ones on the fridge) but she had never been there. An adult would yell since she was very explicitly told to not leave her house until all her chores were done, and she hadn’t done any of them.
Rain should know; she had had three farm cats, and they were always filthy, especially Peanut Butter who was perpetually caked with something that most certainly was not cake. They’re supposed to be big and stupid and smelly and ugly, and the Goblin King himself best be at least a ten-man raid boss, one that drops a polearm as a weapon even though he’s only carrying a large club. The story assumes you know the characters ahead of time, which is fair, but also made the first handful of pages confusing. In fact, it has become more important than ever to pay attention to RankBrain and its effects on SEO.
For example, when compiling a basic post on goal setting in previous SEO efforts, you would have had to focus purely on that phrase.
This will help you find numerous phrases pertaining to goals that can be used throughout your post or article. He's the brains behind the MozCast, the Google Algorithm Weather Report, that chronicles changes to the SERP as they happen. But the article went on to explain that they are trying to provide each Metro station with its own short name (between 13 and 19 characters, depending on the importance of the station) that is easy to scan when hurrying passengers are racing to their destination. I am an avid quotes sharer, and so are many of them, and we all had a good laugh at our own expense. The second puts the quote against a more visually stimulating backdrop, like the type you might see on Tumblr, or even PostSecret. New TLDs still feel like an accessory to many people – a vest instead of a shirt, so to speak. Users on WebmasterWorld found that, sometimes, Google’s products were to blame for their poor scores. Maintaining a healthy relationship with a client is not always easy – has it become more difficult with the times? You can target specific locations too, which makes this a very accurate and powerful targeting tool. And if you improve your click-through rate, you should see your rankings and conversions improve.
Today I'll share some data that shows the relationship between engagement rates (such as bounce rate and time on site) and rankings. We know Google measures dwell time, or how much time a visitor actually spends on a page before returning to the SERPs. What I believe is that, in some Rube Goldbergian way, bounce rate does in fact (indirectly) impact rankings. I think you've passed Google's test — passing it by even more doesn't result in any additional bonus points. If you want to increase your conversion rates by 3x to 5x, then small, incremental changes of 2 or 3 percent usually won't cut it.
There is much more leverage in changing the offer versus, say, the image on an existing offer. Brand awareness creates a bias in people's minds which has a ridiculously huge impact on user engagement signals. That's how you can start biasing them to get them to have happy thoughts about your business, increasing the likelihood that they'll click on you, but more importantly, convert. You can use Custom Affinity Audiences to target people who have searched on keywords you're interested in, but didn't click through to your site (or you can specify certain categories related to your business).
If you aren't using remarketing, essentially you're investing a ton of time and money into your SEO and marketing efforts just to get people to visit one time.
Google does something conceptually similar in AdWords by having both account-level and keyword-level Quality Scores. Can a lowly mage who abandoned the Kirin Tor help solve all of these problems despite holding no respect from anyone? There’s a lot of to connect and sympathize with, and this is all established well before we’re forced to care about any of the humans. Watching an Orc swing a giant hammer at anything is just awesome, made better by some excellent sound design. Yes, as an English major wouldn’t it be amazing if I could use my powers to save the world! The book being in first-person past kills some of the tension since we know Charlie isn’t going to die, but his narration sells his fear well enough. If you’re trying to match history and actual fairytales, then you need to do the proper research to get things right; however, to stick with those fairytales too closely treads over plenty of things we’ve all seen and read about before. Now and then a wonderful set of sentences will show up, proving that there is good writing to be found here, but I wasn’t really engaged through most of the novel. In the meantime, people need to think about community in a simpler way, one that forgoes family ties and materialism.
A tragic car accident and Day Zero put a stop to that, and now he’s stuck on a beach memorizing a philosophy he doesn’t truly believe and wondering why he can’t stop dreaming of his son, Andy. Be it a little bit of horror, a giant heap of scifi and world building, or a mix of both, each of these chapters could stand alone if need be.
The Golden Compass, Harry Potter And the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Marlfox, and The Hobbit all spring to mind as amazing stories for kids and adults alike. The end result is a story that doesn’t hold your hand as you go through it, meaning paying attention to Florence’s facial expressions and the strange horrors she finds in the house is very important.
This gives The Stumps of Flattop Hill a ton of personality and makes the words themselves as visually interesting as the pictures. This is par the course in adult poetry, but I have no idea where it stands with poetry made for children. I’m fine with a bad ending or an unhappy ending if there’s a good reason or point, but none of those really exist here. However, the Amazon description of Martha Wells’ The Edge of Worlds, does call it “the first book in a new series,” so I thought I’d be safe to start here. Between the random guesses as to how to enter the city, the battles outside to establish dominance on who goes in, the last ditch efforts, and the little bits of politics, we’re treated to a lot of drama that works. There’s joy in the little things, from the scholars debating forerunner artifacts to the half-underwater Sealing whorehouse two of our main characters stumble across when looking for information. He acts as a nice set of eyes, and I suppose I sympathize with him somewhat, but his shtick of, “I was an orphan and have finally found a people to call my own but am an outsider and also there’s a culture clash” comes off as a hair trite.
She was also the only person dressed normally, but since she wasn’t wearing any funny-looking clothes, it made her stand out. Her eyes followed the smooth path upwards until it rounded a corner and went out of sight, and when she craned her neck and looked at the top of the mountain, she saw the moon waiting for them. Huge walls of ice and glass closed in from all sides; plants, animals, and strange people with little horns growing out of their heads stared blankly down at her, their faces a mix of confusion and sorrow. The first flower was a rose, the second a wilted tulip that pointed to the right, and the third a broken lily that leaned to the left. Rain wasn’t sure how that could be possible, since it would take hours to reach them in a car and they were only floating down a river. It had grown colder all of a sudden, and a light breeze was picking up, blowing at her back. She supposed it was her fault for eating all of the cookies right away, but she also supposed it was impossible to only eat just one. Rain shrugged because it wasn’t a problem; it was a beautiful summer day, and she still had one juice box left. She had started with her own home and fields, which she knew like the back of her hand, and then the Jordy’s farm and finally the Casper’s. Rain played it every day during the summer, which made it hers even if it did cut through at least six other farms, and she paid very close attention to it. This allows them to react alongside the reader, marveling at the idea that rubies can be ground into jam and that there’s a whole set of mind-controlled zombies used to decorate weddings. This is a big problem as Lustlocked really wants to be funny and probably would be had the prose been less choppy. It suffers from the same stylistic problems, but it’s quick and interesting, and you should read it first if you pick this book up.
However, to gain RankBrain approval, you would now need to create content that covers various goal-related aspects – from setting them to achieving them. He's also presenting his Guide To The Changing Google SERPs Search Marketing Expo (SMX) Advanced this month. He’s also presenting his Guide To The Changing Google SERPs Search Marketing Expo (SMX) Advanced this month. That makes sense to me, and it reminded me of how important the same principle is for website information architecture.Too often I see the top nav of a site use words that just don't make any sense to me as a visitor. It's also similar to how many believe that Google considers links pointing to your domain and also individual pages on your site when computing organic rankings (a moment of silence for our beloved Google PageRank Toolbar). Google is good at fighting click fraud on ad networks, so you can expect them to apply those same learnings to fight organic search click fraud. My journey with the property stopped many years ago, long before “Wrath of the Lich King” came to an end, but the world and lore have always held a strong place in my heart.
Warcraft 2016 can be broken up into three parts: Orcs, Humans, and Mages, and each one by itself has something fun to it.
Dominic Cooper l is too young and too scrawny to be the leader of Stormwind, and this version of Medivh is as boring as can be. Every battle reminded me of the video games in the best ways possible, and I’d gladly go see the movie again just for that.
I recognized places and spires and as cynical as my wretched body is, my face broke out into smiles. Mary’s has a bunch of time-travel devices, and their job is to chronicle the nonsense that happened far in the past. This may or may not become frustrating for kids, though I’m not entirely versed on how smart children are these days. It took me to around page 70 to finally be fed up enough to Google the darn things to see what they looked like, though in my defense, the review .pdf I have didn’t come with any pictures of the cover.
It helps that a lot of the human-esque characters have magical jetpacks so they can keep up. It was cinnamon flavored, not salty like her teacher had said, and it reminded her of the apple pies her mother always made for Thanksgiving. The witches were still partying, some dancing in little circles that Rain could cover up with her pointer finger, and a few were even flying. When she finally remembered to breathe again, she could smell the rose pedals sweet fragrance, and underneath that, the cinnamon taste of the sea. She wished she had left her backpack in the tall grass; it was blue and no one else was wearing blue. From her vantage point, it looked like it was balancing on the very tip and could fall over at the lightest gust of wind. The white path was advancing, chasing after her, its green color frosting and turning to clear glass. They would have also mentioned the series of towns and cities between her and the sea, none of which Rain recognized.
She was now nearing the edge of the Casper’s farm, and her map said the sea was just ahead. Half the technology sites I go to list Products, Solutions, etc., and God bless me if I can figure out what the technology does.
They’re always the bad guys, and other than maybe three in this movie, that remains the case. You’re telling me a hermit mage with so much power he could single-handedly turn the tide of battle is this normal?
So too did I grin when the Blackrock Orcs were mentioned—I’ve ran that dungeon and fought them—or when different places were mentioned in passing, such as the Searing Gorge. Think the battle of Troy or the construction of fancy, super historical walls that I can’t remember the names of. I have to wonder why most fantasy novels with lots of magic don’t have magical jetpacks now that I’ve read a book with them. What if it did nothing at all, just stared at her because she was a silly little girl who went on an adventure and got lost. It had made her stream into a river so she could escape the frozen ghosts, and if it could do that, it could do anything. When she had first learned how to swim at four, it was practically its own sea, but now she could swim across it in a few minutes and even touch the bottom with her toes if she stretched them hard enough. Hell, the final battle takes place in what becomes the Blasted Lands!  I’ve been all over Azeroth, and seeing that world come to life in this way was moving in such a thick, nostalgic way that I find it hard to hate this movie. When I think goblins, I think the Lord of the Rings; when Lustlocked thinks goblins, it thinks…I guess Leonardo DiCaprio?
Do visitors stay on one page for a short while and then leave or do they spend a while perusing the rest of your site? It is not only essential to focus on actual rankings – you also need to focus on what takes place after visitors have clicked on your page or content. Some of them have long names in the top nav, such as the site that had a choice of "Why [Really Long Product Name]" which not only isn't scannable, but I suspect is answering a question that most visitors aren't asking.
I saw another site that liked to mix up short names with long names: Products, Why Company Name, Blog, Get a Demo-it really doesn't work.
One word navigation names work best if you can make that happen, because the spaces between the words act as the spaces between the choices.
If have to have multiple words, you need plenty of space in between the choices so that the eye can distinguish the breaks between them.
But when you use too many multi-word choices, you have to make the font even smaller to provide the required spacing, which defeats the ability to scan all by itself.So, when designing your site's information architecture, don't settle for the words that insiders think are the ones that best describe their choices.
Just put different ideas of the right names on cards and show them to people who represent your audience. See if they know.The names for the areas on your website are among the most scanned and most clicked words on your entire site, so take the extra time to check how well they are working.
