WordPress is for Writers


, , , , , , , , ,

I have several blogs. And I’m a writer.

But no one told me that WordPress is for writers and they have the “Press This” option to easily share another WordPress author’s work. So I’m encouraging writers, bloggers, researchers, and authors to consider joining millions who take their content and put it on a well-respected site that enables Sharing.

Because it’s not good enough to just write. People have to see it.

Check out  WordPress packages, and of course, the basic package is free.

The JetPack lets you launch social media icons for Sharing, and a host of website features like sidebars, links, and images.

Are you pressable? If you’re not sure, you definitely want to be sure at

The History & Use of #MyCaringFriends


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

“My Caring Friends” is what I’ve been calling you long before I even knew what a #Hashtag was!

I’ve been using it on Facebook when talking about my friends that are there with me through thick and thin. They don’t judge or get offended. They just listen and love.

So I turned it into a hashtag #MyCaringFriends or #mycaringfriends about one year ago. Today, if you Google “My Caring Friends and Dr. Margaret Aranda” one gets 2.5 pages of hits, and it fills a full page of Twitter and blog images, a pretty sight here:

We recognize authors Carlos Aranda of Conversations with God and Victoria Lewin with daughter Caitlin, of Caitlin’s Wish. Both authors and books are setting great sights for 2017! How about you?

I’m inviting you to our Twitterland – and here are some hints for your success and growth on Twitter! After all, in just two weeks, the 2nd half of 2017 will be starting, and it’s going by fast! By the time the year 2018 rolls around, we want to see success! To get there, here’s your motivation and inspiration:

5 Ways to Hook Up with #MyCaringFriends

  1. Hashtags

Use hashtag #MyCaringFriends or #mycaringfriends to contribute Tweets, find inspiration, motivational songs, and even prayer. @TheRebelPatient is a rebel, so she talks about things other people can’t really talk about, so feel free to Tag her by a Mention in your Tweets, @TheRebelPatient.

First, use our Team Hashtag, #MyCaringFriends or #mycaringfriends in your Tweets. And if you do a Search, just type in the hashtag to see all the cool inspiration for authors, musicians, artists, spoonies, medicine, and the whole basket!

2. Mention for Mention

If I Tag you in a Tweet, that takes my time. I’m Mentioning you as a Tag. But I’m really thinking about you and sending you Followers. I’m promoting you to others, too. If I take the time to Tag you on a Tweet, please kindly acknowledge me, as this is Engagement. You can either:

a. Say “Thank You for the Mention” or

b. Better yet, just Mention me in your next Tweet! Then I’ll return RT for RT! Isn’t that Sweet?

It’s a great rule for you to Follow our Team, as a representative from you as an author, genre, invisible illnesses, or your niche. I just want to teach you (don’t be offended): Mention for Mention, and Follow for Follow.  

Follow For Follow

My Caring Friends like to Follow for a “Follow Back” and you can see that I Follow virtually everyone in the world who Follows me (no porn, etc.) If they speak another language, I “Follow Back” by also doing a “Mute” so I don’t view a non-English writing on my Home page. But lots of people who speak a foreign language also understand English. And they send me tons of Followers. Hey! they have lots of authors and disabled people. too. 

When I was new to Twitter, someone chided me for not Following him back in 3 days, and WoW – I looked it up and took a Twitter course…. and he was right. So I check all my Twitters every 3 days and Follow for Follow. I do it all by hand, no app. I like to see who is Following. I’m just curious!

BTW you can Follow all your Followers on your cell phone – it’s much faster, but don’t go too fast or Follow more than 200/day so Twitter won’t lock you out for a time ;0.

3. Growing your Account Followers

If we write a blog that we can Tweet, then we need to Share it on Twitter. I use this to spread information and increase awareness. It’s a powerful outreach that can not be underestimated. So if you see your name in a list of 9 others in a Picture that I Tweeted to you, please open it up and Follow everyone who is listed in the Photo. 

4. ReTweets (RT)

My time is valuable and I’m not one to SPAM – I also wrote a blog, “Tell It Like I’m 5: What’s SPAM?”  – I will not send you more than 6 Mentions or Tweets a day. 

That is, unless you say,

“Tag me on anything, anytime, and I’ll Re-Tweet whatever you send me!” 

– That’s such a great thing to hear from My Caring Friends! I love that! And I’m here for you the same way. If I don’t RT whatever you Tag me in, no worries, okay? No one expects that you HAVE to RT a Mention. It’s all light and airy!

Feel free to Mention me on whatever you want – I’ll try to Re-Tweet (RT) it even if it’s not ‘for me’ but for the benefit of my Followers.

The Making of a Child Artist


In our previous article, we went from “Who Translates 300 Books?” to musician, artist, producer, author, and businessman with SaySaga Inspirational, Selim Yeniceri.

I interviewed Selim Yeniceri and asked, “Which title do you like the best, when referring to yourself?”

And he answered, without delay,

I prefer to describe myself as an ‘all-around art person.’

If you ask me if I like describing myself this way, I would say that I’ve never known anything else, as far back as I can remember.

Selim used to draw endless amounts of horse sketches at age three. He formulated the anatomy of a horse in geoemetric form and in any pose desired. Using rectangles and sticks, he then made the horses jump, run or stand. It was the first time that Selim remembers develping a life-long affinity to animals.

At age eight or nine, Selim immersed himself reading zoologogy encyclopedias speaking of animal life as his selected readings, as if they were a novel. He dreamed of writing his own 300-page novel, too.

The transition from being an artist to a writer came through the doorway of being a good story-teller.

Beginning at age eight, Selim wasn’t watching cartoons. He was an actor on children’s shows.

That wasn’t all.

When it wasn’t summertime holiday, Turkish Radio and Television, TRT was Selim’s venue (See building above).

To give you an idea of the role TRT played in Turkey, singer Zeki Muren was a classical Turkish music star, internationally beloved, who attended TRT for weekly radio shows.

In Turkey, all LIVE radio shows went out directly from TRT’s site, broadcast to the entire country.

Everyone who was anyone showed up here to sing or act. It was THE place to be.


Selim Yeniceri is likened to a  Turkish version child prodigy like American Mickey Roonie.

During the early-1980’s, TRT there were three radio stations:
  1. TRT – TV, radio, and theatre. This was the only TV station in the country. For a historic perspective, television was introduced to Turkey in the early 1970’s.
  2. “Police” FM – popular music. Amazingly, tt was financed by members of the police force.
  3. “FM” Radio – disco, pop, hard rock music. This was Selim’s favorite, of course.

With a school year schedule on the theatre stage six days/week for two years, Selim also was on radio.

Thus, on the seventh day of the week, Selim read radio scripts for children’s and adult radio theatre, upwards of 200 shows.

He remembers nonchalantly being handed his script for review, and the producer would walk away.

By the time he returned, Selim would have read the whole script!

Incredulously, producer Vedat Demirci would ask, “You read the whole thing?”

Selim was very honest, answering,

Not the page numbers.

Who Translates 300 books?


, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Who translated 300 books?

Selim Yeniceri.

Born in İstanbul, Selim Yeniceri has been a book translator in Turkey, with decades of professional work under his belt and about 300 books translated from English to Turkish.

A free-minded New Age and spiritual person, he is a single father, musician, artist and author.

Much more than just a ‘book translator,’ imagine how this feat extraordinaire could also “be bad”…. if you are also a musician, artist, and author.

For that is the truth of the matter. Under this understandably ‘superficial’ accomplishment (yes, it ends up being just the beginning) of being a ‘book translator’ lies a much more gifted person whose day has yet to come.

We are in the midst of Selim Yeniceri’s own life story even as I type these words.

Selim wrote a memoir, riddled with severe ups-and-downs as challenges to a potential musician’s career surface and resurface.

The thing is that he continues to look upward through life’s challenges.

So it’s a story that unfolds before your very eyes, and I think you will like to watch how it ends.

After all, everybody loves an underdog whose day is yet to come … I think you’ll be rooting for him this 2017.

Accompanying the book release is a distinguished prequel: his original music production.

Not ‘just’ a book translator or musician, Selim Yeniceri is also a music and video producer, music master, remixer, and studio professional.
