Make my Blog Famous
I may soon be ready to make my Blog Famous.

NOTHING will change, it would just become radically easier to read.

My Blog is my play toy, a way of talking to myself, and enjoying the cathartic effects of journalizing.

I do not promote my Blog, I do about 10 times LESS than any other Travel Journalger I know to help promote their Blog. I do nothing, close to zero, I do not even proofread it well, and I do my best to ignore and offend the audience, so they do not destroy this cathartic moment of my life.

I do not want myself to be famous, I go to great lengths to avoid cameras, you do not see me putting photos of myself on the Blog, proof positive the Blogger wishes to be Famous.

To be “Famous” is a horrible experience.

To be “Famous” is tiresome and boring.

To have everyone know you is not love, it is an annoyance.

To have good friends is great, to be known by the world is a fools gold.

However after making all that noise, why would I make my Blog Famous? Hmm, it is that “Money and Fame” equations. I do not want the fame, however I want the Money.

NOTHING will change, it would just become radically easier to read.

I feels soon I will have enough money and support staff to manage a truly world famous Blog, not a world famous “Face” book, but a world famous Blog.

Nothing will change, I will just polish it up and make it more presentable for the prime time readers and add proprietor made navigation that is not presently available in Blogger or Word Press.

Bottom line, I will pay Coders to create all the code needed to make a both a beautiful looking Blog, however more important they will create functional needs that all Blogs seem to be missing. It is easy navigation when you have posted 200 times, however a whole new world of problems when you have 4000 post.

NOTHING will change, it would just become radically easier to read.

Where to go with Languages

Where to go with Languages
Trying to find the Hotels or Hostels today here in Seoul was one of the worst experiences of my travel life. There is no way to communicate effectively that would give me even a semblance of normal travel, maybe just a continuous headache.

The only solution I can derive is to learn the language as I did in West Africa when English was of no value and French was needed. The Korean people often speak English well, however I am not sure this is a solution. I cannot even read the street signs, and they are not in English and you cannot depend on a person to be around to help when you need one.

I am not too excited about learning to speak Korean, I believe the only Asian language I have a desire to learn is Chinese.

I know one thing, I will never complain about Thailand not speaking English again, the language problems of Thailand are nothing compared to Korea.

South Korea City Tourist

South Korea City Tourist
What do I do now? I am in South Korea trapped in some never ending city, Seoul feels like New York City full of people who look Asian.

I realized today, I am not a City Tourist, this truly is not my cup of tea. I left Taipei, and went to the same city in a different country, just a different name.

I have successful wasted two trips in Taiwan, by getting trapped in cities. I think maybe I should somehow leave this city and go anywhere out of a city. Then again, I could just get on a plane tomorrow, and leave.

I feel trapped in a friendly city.

I really wish I had a Guidebook, this PDF Lonely Planet thing is not working too good, I need paper.
