"Potential Love denied the chance to materialise and grow
Because of fear within a heart to let their feelings show,
Except for in their dreams where their desire is met,
Is truly a sad tale of emptiness with the promise of regret."

New-Angel

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

This angel is in Loving memory of my dear sister, Carol, but to her family, she was affectionately known and Loved as "Tussie". I know you are at peace with our Lord. Love you and miss you. 

I placed this in a 1920x1080 desktop size along with the poem I wrote as well. It is in a separate post, here:

"New Angel"

I miss you; I Love you and always will.
Our memories made must do until
The day again when we'll be embracing,
With smiles of joy and no burdens facing;
Just peace and contentment, in abundance of,
Flavoured and garnished with all God's Love.

Google+1-Button-n-View-Count

Greetings everyone!

Ordinarily, I post my art, poetry, and quotes. But this post is an exception because I'm this disappointed with Google's latest developments or should I say, "digressive moves". I Google and Google products and services for the most part, but what they did by implementing Google Photos to replace Picasa and now, what they've done with the Google +1 button, perhaps someone should inform them that they are NOT making "improvements".

As I've stated, generally speaking I like Google products and services and I appreciate the fact they offer so many for free or for very reasonable, affordable rates. But with this said,  I still can't comprehend why Google makes the changes they do, especially  when the changes make Google digressive instead of progressive. 

Google gave up Picasa Web and put in motion instead, Google Photos.  All older photos/images have been archived. Now archived, the "OWNER of the photos/images" cannot do ANYTHING with THEIR OWN photos/images, except download or delete. They cannot be edited, moved, or anything else. You can't get the actual image link address to any photos, either, whether new or old. The only way I know of to get the "actual image address" for an image is to upload it to a blogger blog of mine. So, I have to ask, how does one achieve this if they don't have a blogger blog? 

On top of this, ALL view counts have been removed and the G+ is no longer available for photos. Why? Why can't we, the owners of the images, know if our images/photos are being viewed and/or G+'ed? I'm an artist, poet, and writer of quotes. So yeah, I like to know if my works are being seen and/or liked (G+'ed) or not. Most creative types do. How many creative people, for example, create say, an artwork and then shove it in a closet or somewhere out of sight? Not too many! How about photographers? Do they take photos to 'hide' them? Of course not! 

People in general like to know if what they put out there is being seen and/or liked or not. Otherwise, what's the point? There isn't any point or purpose for posting anything, regardless if for the general public or for a limited audience, if what's being posted isn't to be seen by others and on the Internet the only way to know this, is through the like/G+ buttons, view counter, and comments. Since many don't bother writing comments, the like/G+ button and view count are two invaluable tools. Taking them away or drastically limiting their usage and availability can't be anything but a huge step backwards, digressive.

Then what about those who rely on tools to help them with marketing their product or service? Views and likes or G+'s help them know what content works better for them and what doesn't. Here again, relying on people commenting to show support and/or liking something is unreliable and primitive when there are better and more productive tools that can be used 'in conjunction with' comments. I can't perceive that those in online marketing can possibly be pleased with the digression.

..And the G+ button is "evolving"!? This is what Google's been saying when you click on the G+ button on my blogs anyway for about a month or so. The emperor was fully clothed too as he marched down the street, I suppose? (From The Emperor's New Clothes fable) Removing the G+ count from everywhere, except on Google Plus is considered by Google to be "evolving"!? Confining the G+ count to Google Plus only is a "progressive move"!? Who and how many at Google aren't getting their proper rest to think clearly? 

Just one more way for Facebook to have the advantage because Facebook like buttons and counts are everywhere. The Facebook Developers must be loving this latest move by Google. Google+ is already so isolated and isolating the G+ button's count now as well by confining it to Google+ posts only, can only isolate the social media site even more. Is Google trying or wanting to do away with Google+? It's looking like they are because instead of making 'improvements', they're taking away tools many like and even rely on that are offered still by other competitive social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

So, ALL view counts Google has removed and now ALL G+ counts have been removed, except on ONLY Google+ "posts". "Not everyone belongs to Google+, Google." I'm thinking that I might as well remove my G+ button from my blogs because Shareaholic has it covered to G+ a blog post and then I don't have to be constantly reminded that Google took my G+ count away. I hope Google doesn't take over Twitter because all the likes and impressions will be removed from Twitter too probably.

But it doesn't do any good to complain even with validity because Google just does things from Google's perspective, making us, the users, feel like we don't matter and as with anything that relies on the users/consumers approval ratings and support, when this approval and support wanes, falls by the wayside, no matter how big an entity is, it will crumble as a result eventually. 

Users and/or consumers are the ones who make or break a business, organization, website, etc.. If those who are running the show aren't acutely aware of this key factor and it's crucial role in keeping a business, organization, website, etc. going AND thriving, whatever entity it is, it can't thrive or survive. Ignoring the users/consumers, the 'backbone element', does have a negative impact, unnoticeable at first but cumulatively over time produces dire, irreversible consequences. Google is big but Google is not exempt from being subjected to users'/consumers' make or break capability. Without us users/consumers, Google wouldn't still be in existence. 

..And speaking of websites, the main reason why Elftown.com died is because the regular users, the community body, the 'backbone element', were ignored and treated like they were insignificant (and many were mocked, belittled, and even harassed by some staff members), while a number of those running the site took on an air of self promotion and importance. The site became a place run by and to serve an elitist group, cliche, who used double standards and sucked up to a manipulating ringleader, who if someone disagreed with or didn't kiss their behind, they were then made the subjects of petty, childish, and cruel insults, and often collectively by several staff members (mobbing). There was a complete lack of professionalism by several running the site. But then again, on the whole how professional can teenagers running anything be? It's not that young folks aren't intelligent or don't have good, new and fresh ideas, because they are and do, but very few have enough "experience" to run a website "professionally". So, as a result, a once really great website, has bitten the dust.

Therefore, the point is, running an entity and keeping it thriving and surviving is keeping the users/consumers pleased with and wanting to use whatever it is that's being offered. Alienate the users/consumers and the beginning of the end inevitably looms on the horizon.

💗 Have a Blessed Day! 💗

I did a WIP of this in 2008. I couldn't decide whether I wanted to go with a unicorn or a Pegasus. Ultimately, I wound up making both. A comment about the WIP Pegasus I received was, "Astounding!" Hence, when I finished it finally in 2013, I decided to title this work, "Astounding Stallion".

Letter-To-God

Greetings everyone!


So often we turn to God in our times of need.
In our desperation we go to Him to plead
For His Help, His Guidance, to fix what has been broken, 
But when all is well, so fewer words to Him are then spoken.

So this makes me wonder how often He must yearn
For some words of gratitude without requesting a return.
Few of us humans like the feeling when we're being used.
If only called upon to serve a purpose, we are not amused.

When we deal with others, we should the Golden Rule apply,
Treating others how we wish to be is the way to live by.
So why do we tend to treat our Lord with the same that we reject
And call only upon Him when there's a favour we expect?

This letter is addressed to God. I know He will Hear,
From my heart to His meant to only bring Him cheer.
There are no requests from me, only thankfulness
For all the ways He Blesses me, yet too many to express. ♥ ♥

Dearest God,

I thank You for this day, I thank You for this week.
I thank You for Your Guidance with everything I seek.
I thank You for Your countless blessings bestowed upon me,
Especially for the Gifts to share so others can also blessed be.

I thank You for my family, those of blood and not
And for the cherished memories I have not forgot.
I thank You for my friends, every one a treasure,
To say how much, there are no words to measure.

I thank You for supplying all that I may need,
And for Your Patience when Your Wisdom I don't heed.
I thank You for all the Miracles of Life that can't be imitated
And for this World of Wonders, You, with Love Created.

I thank You for the courage when I am lost and weak
And for Your Listening even when I cannot speak.
I thank You for Your Light You keep shining every day,
A Beacon when I'm lost, can't seem to find my way.

I thank You for the strength when struggles grace my path
And Your Forgiving, when I'm besieged with bitter wrath.
I thank You for Believing that I can do a task,
Even when I'm doubtful about that which You ask. 

I thank You for Your Words of Truth. I thank You for Your Love.
I thank You for Your Presence, within, around, above.
Dearest God, Most Merciful, Most Gracious, Most Adored,
I Praise You, Exalt You, Most Highest, You, my Lord!

With Love always,
Your humble, thankful servant. ♥ ♥ ♥

Row-YOUR-Boat

Greetings everyone!

For the better part of about the last two weeks I've been working on my blogs, giving them make-overs of sorts. It would be much better and less frustrating if the page/text editor actually co-operated. Numerous times the editor wouldn't work as it should and so, I had to try and figure things out through HTML and I am so not good with this! Anyhow, I still have more to do, especially with Creative Corner, but I'm pausing to post for a change.

This poem can be sung, if one knows the two children's tunes, "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and "The Farmer In The Dell". With the first half of every verse and second half also of last verse, sing to the tune of 
"Row, Row, Row Your Boat" and with the second half of every verse, except last verse, sing to the tune of "The Farmer In The Dell".

Inspired in part by Dr. Wayne Dyer. May he always be enjoying a new adventure. May God bless and rest his soul forever. 
"Row YOUR Boat"

1) Row, row, Row YOUR Boat
Gently down the stream;
Row with the flow of life t'wards YOUR 
Each and ev'ry dream.
Row YOUR Boat always,
Always with the flow,
For against the current
Is not the way to go.

Row, row, Row YOUR Boat,
Row YOUR Boat along
And if you row with Love, you'll be 
Never in the wrong.
Should you encounter rapids
Or should you run aground,
They're temporary setbacks,
But don't you turn around!

Just row, Row YOUR Boat
Onward t'wards YOUR dream,
Rowing along with Love, as the
Power of YOUR steam.
For when you row with Love,
You'll ne'er be out of power
Nor besieged with bitterness
Nor will YOUR dreams go sour.

Row, row, Row YOUR Boat,
Make ripples as you go,
Ripples of caring, kindness, with
Gratitude to show.
Should waves so big rush in
To overturn YOUR boat,
The elements of Love
Will keep you still afloat.
       

































       
2) Row, row, Row YOUR Boat.
Let others row their own,
But be a tug sometimes when a
Need for help is shown.
We all must row our boats;
We all must keep in mind;
We all encounter troubles
That'll get us in a bind.

Row, row, Row YOUR Boat.
Don't just float adrift
Nor miss precious moments from you
Being way too swift.
For when we drift along,
Precious time we waste,
But when we speed too fast,
We'll likewise do with haste.

Row, row, Row YOUR Boat
In friendly waters do.
Leave behind all fake friends to
Row with only true.
Row YOUR Boat steadily,
Be careful how you steer.
Choose God as YOUR Guide
And faith instead of fear.

Row, row, Row YOUR Boat,
To thyself be true.
Seek YOUR best with humbleness and
Good will follow you.
Row, row, Row YOUR Boat
Gently down the stream.
Row with God and Love, He'll lead you
To YOUR ev'ry dream.

💗 Have a Blessed Day! 💗

Galadriel-With-Castle-Grande

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

This is the same as the previous post, except Galadriel is included. She's one of the main characters in my fantasy story, entitled: "Galadriel, the Magical Maiden", inspired by a person on the site I once loved so much as I've previously mentioned, who I once admired greatly, only to have to eventually learn he would resort to stalking me and invade my privacy through his hacking skills. Being a computer programmer, he used/uses his knowledge immorally and unethically.

Even when I connected all the dots to learn he was, still is, doing such, I tried everything in my power I could think of to try and resolve the issue, but to no avail. I believe any issue can be resolved as long as both parties involved have a willingness to do so. I was willing but not he. His unwillingness and his persistent invasion of my privacy, as well as and continuing after banning me from the site eventually made me see him in a much different and unfavourable light.


I've been greatly rewarded by the site owner for all of my mega devotion and dedication to/for the site. Not only did I put in mega amounts of time and effort, years worth, as well as donate a considerable amount of my money, which I have little of, I used my name and art to promote the site. The main reason I obtained my first website, artsieladie.com, was to have a site where I could link back to his site, to hopefully increase traffic to it. Because I had created hundreds, if not thousands of wiki pages on his site in my name, Artsieladie, the idea was to build on this in favour of helping his site.

I know next to nothing about SEO stuff. It's not my department of expertise but it is his and I was always willing to learn more to help the site anyway I could, both on the inside and the outside. How did he reward me? He is slandering my name across the Internet, using the same site to pull it off, this is how.


Before he banned me within minutes right after a close male friend of mine wrote an endearing message to me he didn't like, I had begun a huge undertaking of indexing all the main aspects of the site to help especially new members with navigating the site, so they could find the main places easily and readily. This was part of my idea to form a welcoming committee for especially new members.

I also had ideas in the works to offer winners of contests more incentives to enter by offering to pay for full donor privs for winners. In fact in a contest I had put together, this concept I had put into motion. It never got off the ground, it was ignored, simply because it was 'my' idea. It had become a Christmas tradition with me to donate for a few members to have full donor privs each Christmas anyway and to also send a little money to the owner for Christmas as well, as tokens of my appreciation that he maintained the site I loved.


But perhaps, one of my best ideas was to make my gazillion graphics available for use by others with my platform of choice at the time being his site. The idea was to first draw others to the site, then to have my graphics available to them to use, they would have to join and perhaps, make a donation "to him" to do so. I already have approximately 10,000 of my graphics on his site, which he's denying me access to now, and I have MANY thousands more saved of much better quality, where he can't gain access to.

I create simply because I enjoy it and if I can bring others a little joy as a result, this makes it all so much more worthwhile. I'm still contemplating offering my graphics for others to use, but if and/or when I do, it won't be to draw traffic to his site, but using another platform instead.

We learn most from our unfortunate experiences and encounters. This horrific experience has taught me a valuable lesson; to be extra, EXTRA careful of who you put your trust in, especially online. I don't regret the giving, for giving is never wrong. The wrong can only come into play when the receiver is/receivers are unappreciative takers, even heartless as in this case. The saying, "you get what you give" is not true when you're dealing with opportunists who are only out to take all they can, especially from generously giving people. Then to have the colossal gall to claim the one they took from, wronged them truly reflects on their complete lack of worthiness of character. :,(

Galadriel-Castle-Grande

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

This post is another comparison post in which I'm showing two versions of an artwork of mine. They each took me a great deal of time, like weeks each. The original's main focus was on the castle details and with the remake, I made adjustments with the castle, but then made a much more elaborate setting and background. I love creating lots of detail.

The flag of Sweden is in the work instead of the American flag because when I created the original, I was active on a website I loved that's based in Sweden. To me there'll never be a site like it, unique, and this is what made it stand above the rest. But because I loved the site so much and loved working on and for the site, which was never really work because I enjoyed it, there were people who sucked up to their jealous ringleader's wishes, who resented me for my dedication and because the most prominent member of the site took notice.

She's been since gotten rid of but not before the owner granted her, her wish to get rid of me, his biggest mistake because there's no one on the site who believed in the site and its potential more than I. If I didn't believe in the site as I did, I wouldn't have invested the mega amount of time I did nor would I have invested money in the site as I did. Now sadly, the site is all but completely dead with only a handful of active members remaining, 107 at last look.

Nothing is updated any longer and it appears the owner has given up on the site as well and I'm guessing, he'll get rid of it just as he has several of his other sites that died. I only wish the owner had given me a real chance at making changes on the site based on a more professional standpoint that would have eliminated the unprofessional double standards, staff favouritism, brown nosing, and regular member bashing, among other things. But he chose to go along with a group who were more about their own importance than what was best for the site and its community. 


I had some great ideas in the works both to increase community interest and participation and to promote the site on the outside across the web to draw in more members and the time and effort needed to enact them, was never an issue with me. But I was repeatedly shot down, cruelly ostracised every which way but loose by a staff, who several of complained about being 'too much work'. As a result, the site was destroyed from within and such a shame it is. :,(

Galadriel, the unicorn, will be within this image in the next post.

The-Eagle-Cries

Greetings everyone, from Artsieladie!

America is being destroyed because of greed.

Dedicated to all our American Veteran Heroes who have sacrificed so much to protect and preserve our Constitutional Rights, Freedoms and Americans' safety. We Americans are indebted immeasurably to all our Veteran Heroes. We must honour them by standing together as United Americans seeing to it all that our Heroes sacrificed for, is not taken away from us by those who seek huge financial gains for themselves alone. ANYONE, including our government, our politicians, CIA, etc., who jeopardizes Americans' rights, freedoms, safety, and so forth, is an abominable disgrace for such individuals profoundly dishonour and desecrate all that our service men and women have given to, sacrificed for our country, with so many who have sacrificed the ultimate by giving up their lives. Our American Heroes did NOT make the sacrifices they did for the greedy elite, the greedy corporations, to bleed our country and Americans dry nor to make America a puppet for or a part of a one world government. Our Heroes gave their lives TO KEEP AMERICA FREE!! It is our responsibility as Americans to make damn sure, AMERICA REMAINS FREE!! We can ONLY accomplish this as a UNITED PEOPLE.

United, we stand; divided, we fall;
It is up to us ALL to make the call.
We either honour, preserve, and save
Or forfeit and dishonour all who gave.
When we work together to keep America free, 
We honour those who gave ALL to make us be; 
But against each other, using forces of hate, 
We forfeit freedom’s sacrifices and desecrate.

Across spacious skies the eagle flies
Over mountains, valleys, and plains;
On majestic wing but with no song to sing
For the greedy are robbing all gains.

A nation's seeds of many colours, creeds,
Created with liberty and justice for all;
Divided is wrong when united is strong,
But division now threatens her to fall.

The eagle's land once so grand,
The home of the brave and free
Is under the spell of the wicked cartel,
While sleeping eyes wake not to see.

The eagle weeps as darkness creeps
In shadows across this great land.
Our freedom's story, once of glory,
Now written by the elitists' hand.

For all the lives lost, the ultimate cost,
The Eagle Cries, shedding rivers of tears,
As the greedy elite conspire to defeat
America, the eagle trembles in fears.

Though the eagle still soars over her shores
Where once was widespread brotherly Love,
The Eagle Cries down now over many a town,
A dismal view is the sight from up above. 

For all the many lies, in shame The Eagle Cries;
The deafened hear not its piercing screams
Of the eagle, forlorn, as it trumpets to warn
The People and the threat to our dreams.

From uncertain skies The Eagle Cries,
Shuddering, gripped with fears;
Over America, the great, of uncertain fate,
Her majesty fading, reflects in eagles' tears.

Across spacious sky will the eagle again fly
Over a land where people united, stand,
Proud and free from sea to shining sea,
Under God's Grace and Guiding Hand?
