The 100th Armenian Genocide Commemoration – 2015

The 100th Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide is just 6 and a half Months away. Annually on April 24, we gather together in Canada’s Capital Ottawa in the Province of Ontario and we commemorate the Armenian Genocide. The Turkish Ottoman empire and Government is responsible for murdering and massacre of 1.5 Million Armenian’s in 1915 as well as stealing our precious and beautiful land as well as Mount Ararat which will always be Armenia’s.

The Turkish Government to this very day still denies that they ever did commit a Genocide, which is why we need to spread the word as much as possible. 2015 will be the 100th Commemoration. Where ever you are and will be, however you will commemorate, it is important to come together with other Armenian’s and venture out in the public eye, and in public places to voice ourselves and make this a global recognition. Our efforts need to be taken out of our Armenian communities and churches and solely head to Embassies, Consulates, organize public marches in the metropolitan areas of your city where it is densely populated with visible signs, banners, and our Armenia Flag.

Canada Has recognized the Armenian Genocide and we thank Canada so much as other Countries as well who have recognized. It is only a matter of time until the world comes together to raise awareness and recognition, on not only the Armenian genocide, but all other genocides and terrible acts of humanity throughout the world.
We need to spread the word out to everyone. In Canada, we will be heading to Ottawa, Canada in front of the Canadian Parliament, followed by a march to the Turkish Embassy. April 24, 2015. Usually we begin at 12 noon until everyone arrives in Ottawa from buses from Ontario and Quebec from Cambridge, Toronto, Montreal, Laval, and abroad. For up to date information, bus departure times and other questions, please see your Local Canadian Armenian Community Centre Organization to obtain more information.
Also the information will be posted here as well once we get more news soon. In the meantime it is important to spread awareness as much as possible. Social Media is a huge way to raise awareness. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the 100th Centennial in Ottawa, please contact me. Also if you want to do your own research about the Armenian Genocide and what happened, You can Google, or search on Facebook, Twitter or wherever in social media.

What Is In A Blog? Why Do We Blog?

In this day in age, social media, blogging, and networking is booming and blooming like wildflowers, a lot of places on the internet now have blogs. There are all sorts of blogs out there, some for personal use, business, hobby, interest, travel, food, recipes, pleasure, topics of the world, issues, life, advertising, writing about a product, introducing an artist and getting yourself out there for the world to know about you and who you are and what your purpose of a blog is. Blogging is such a huge thing now in our generation, in just a few clicks and writing a username and password, your on your way to making a blog. To me, blogging is therapeutic, its where I am able to write about my feelings, write about issues, introducing others, promoting someone or something. Before even starting with WordPress, I did a lot of thinking before I started this blog site, I said what will I use it for? How will I contribute to the world with my words? Will they be read? Will they be noticed? Will my content be read by so many people? Will my blog be successful? I asked myself several questions before dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s. I am glad I made the decision to say yes and start my journey in blogging. I am glad and happy on where it has taken me. The world now is filled with bloggers like us.

I have had my ups and downs in the past year and few months into my blog, but that didn’t stop me from pursuing my dreams and making a difference in peoples lives with my words with positive approach on life, to always be optimistic, happy, and enjoy life. That is one of the main reasons why I started to blog in the first place, but then as I went on, I started to post recipes of my favourite dishes, invested time in other topics, issues, and about technology, social media, and among so many other topics that came to mind. Ladies and Gentlemen, writing is a very difficult thing to do, but it doesn’t matter when it comes to blogging, how to write, the content, structure, the topic, the title, tagging your post. I know its supposed to be done well, but it really doesn’t have to. It depends on individuality, how you want your writings done, how you want your blog website to be portrayed. It is all up to you and you have the freedom to structure it the way you want to, but always make it visible, easy on the eyes and easy to comment, follow and organize your blog, so that way you get more people to come, but then again its your blog and you are entitled to make it the way you want it to.

Blogging is something very incredible. When you search for keywords on the internet on major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, and all the other ones, There are several sites that come up and your blog is included into the list. Some people prefer either Wikipedia, or right on a persons blog. Someone Somewhere will click on your blog and engage into it and if they like what they see, they will follow it and they will become a member on your site and get e-mail subscriptions, they will comment, and bookmark it, and there are all kinds of people interested in all kinds of things. There are billions of people who are online now, and the sky is the limit. You never know how many people maybe viewing your blog, you never know from where, which is why I love WordPress Stats, it tells you by country, clicks, search engines, how many peoples visited, viewed, your blog counter, and amongst who has been following your blog and so much more. I love looking at the stats. Its incredible. Blogging is such a great tool and I love it. I encourage everyone to start a blog, and I encourage everyone to get started on how great social media and networking can be. To advertise your business, and to promote yourself, a blog does wonders. You never know who is looking at you. Some people go places and get far in life just by blogging.

I remember a few weeks ago I went to a party and a friend of mine approached me and said, someone I know writes movie critics on his blog, and someone from an agency or a critic from a big movie company noticed and he was offered a career path in New York City in New York and now he is living there and making a lot of money, by just blogging. He was noticed from online and now, hes living very comfortably and hes doing so well. I am telling you, blogging is a very powerful thing now. Anybody can see what you write and if you get lucky someone big sees it, you have it made. All the best to you and your blogging journey. I know its hard, but you will get there someday, I know that for sure. Enjoy blogging, and enjoy what you do. All the best!

In this day in age and in modern society, social media is at an all time high. Most of us in the world are connected through some social media website whether its twitter, Facebook, pinterest, tumblr, WordPress, Google+, Blogger, Blogspot, MySpace, Hi5, and so many more websites out there to cater our social media, communications needs. Now social media can be used to boost business, advertising ones self, giving tips, advising people, about a hobby, society, issues, subjects, technology, and so much more. We are all in an interface of social media in some form or another. E-mail is also a part of social media.

Now, what does social media mean to me? Well, social media to me means that I can share myself with the world, that I can give my points of views about certain topics and things that happen in the world, also about targeting important subjects leading to prevention of bullying, as well as other social issues that I need to address too. Were all on a social media front and it all depends on a persons individuality, feelings, freedom of expression on certain subjects, among everything else. To me, social media is such a great tool to have. You never know who might pop by your blog, you never know who is viewing your blog and it is always a mystery and if someone from a big company or somewhere sees the great work and time you put into something and if somebody sees something interesting, they will contact you to talk about it or offer you something so incredible. It’s happened to me numerous times. I love expressing myself and social media has given me such a boost to do it.

I am not afraid to share and give out my opinions as everyone is entitled to their own opinions and people should not be penalized for it, and its great to see people share different points of views on certain subjects that can be relative to them or just simply just discussing it. I love social media because I get to meet some really great people and I get to interact with so many different types of people all at once. Its incredible how social media has boomed especially the last 5-10 years. Social media sites began as far as Asian Avenue, Migente, Black Planet, Hi5, MySpace, Geocities from Yahoo, and so many other websites I can remember from back in the day and now Facebook and Twitter are on the rise. It is incredible how social media changes. Social media always has its ups and downs, but in the end were all in it, and social media is defined in so many ways and it depends on individuality on what it means to someone.

Now its all comes down to you, what does social media mean to you? What do you use it for? for communicating with loved ones? Finding different opinions from others? looking at pictures, finding information, learning, Interacting on the internet and constantly being updated with news? Do you find Social Media a rewarding and fun experience? I would love to hear from you on it.

All the best!

I Like The Internet Very Much, I Love To Communicate

In The last 14 years to almost 15 years now, since I started using the internet, I can remember when it was dial up and used to keep the phone line occupied most of the time, now the innovation of the internet has become more advanced and it’s switched over to Cable which is awesome, so that the phone does not get busy all the time when emergency phone calls are made. More over, I’d like to bring the internet to my personal level and how much I like the internet. I started by small steps to get to know computers, to get to know how to operate the internet, how to search, how to get the information I want right away. I am so happy with what the internet has become now. Information is transmitted immediately and instantly around the world. You can be in California and you can e-mail somebody in Italy and it will get there in an instant, or when you want to e-mail someone from Canada right to Australia, it will go in seconds. Technology has become awesome and it has made the world a smaller place. E-mail and typing has taken over and post offices, paper and pens are stacked up at the stores and I see no one really buying notebooks, pens, pencils anymore, It is great for the environment, but it hurts a lot of business’s but I also like to write and use pens too when I am in Bible Study and when I make shopping lists when I go out and more. I do not want to forget my penmanship. Further more, Skype, webcam’s are used to talk to family and friends around the world. Its an incredible tool to use, but to be careful with the internet too as it can be a dangerous place also. It all depends on how you use the internet and how you portray yourself.

Social Networking, Media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Pinterest, Tumblr, WordPress, Google, Linkedin, and so many other social media sites make the world a smaller place by finding family, girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, school mates, colleagues, and people you have met in your life to keep in touch with them. I cannot even begin to describe how I appreciate the internet. Or else I would have never found people and I would have never communicated with people whom I have not seen in ages. I am glad that the internet exists for great things only. One of the greatest things I like to do on the internet is read, do research on my favourite things, subjects, topics, discover new recipes, finding certain things on the internet, I have been looking for, reading about history, cultures, the world, and geography, as well as researching the places I have traveled and so much more. The internet is a tool where anything and everything can be searched. Its a great thing and I am so glad I have the internet. To be honest, I’d be lost without it. It is like my communication and news tool of the world besides the newspapers and television.

Now for safety and security while being on the internet. It’s a great idea to get a really great quality virus scanner and virus protector for your computer and internet. Be careful who you chat with and be careful who you add on your social networking profiles. People can misuse others, people and manipulate others, and do terrible things. It is very important to not just chat on any chatting websites. Do not give personal information, passwords, and other information to other people. no matter who they are. Things can be used against you and you have to always watch out and be very careful on things because whatever goes on the internet will always stay there forever and you need to really exercise caution. The internet can be a great place, but it is all on how you treat it, how well you take care of yourself online and not do anything that will jeopardize your future. Enjoy your internet and enjoy what you do, but always be mindful and take precautions. It can save a lot of hassle in the long run. Always protect yourself.

Your Internet Browser — Which do you Prefer?

Recently my curiosity on testing out different internet browsers became of big interest to me, and all I kept using was internet explorer as my main browser, but I noticed that Internet explorer has been running a lot slower than other internet browsers. Sometimes it would take forever to look at pictures, to post on my blog, and do so many things that I need to do, I decided to test out different internet browsers like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari and so far Google Chrome and Firefox are the ones I really like. Internet explorer doesn’t give you that many options whereas the Chrome and Firefox are so incredible and super fast. I checked my e-mail, Facebook, twitter in a matter of 5 Minutes. Its incredible. I went to Safari as well and I was on there briefly, not so much to test it out. In comparison the internet explorer, I find that these browsers are far more secure and faster and it makes my life a lot easier and it makes blogging and e-mailing a lot more simpler.

I am glad I made the switch to Firefox and Google Chrome. I am using both now. Are there any other web browsers I do not know about? Are there any special websites to find out on the rating of internet browsers? With the internet being so compact on so much information and so many websites, I often find myself in a spiral and I do not know where to go, or which websites to really believe in ratings and information as some of them can be misleading and it makes things a lot more confusing. Even though I am great at Internet searching and I have a lot of knowledge on how to do things on the computer and everything, but sometimes it is so confusing and I wouldn’t know the best websites to fit my needs and what I want to look for in terms of the best things out there and I am asking you my readers to fill me in on the latest technology so on and so forth.

I mean this is what blogging and sharing ideas when blogging is all about. We learn from each other and different beliefs, and people offer great suggestions, opinions and everything. Its what I love to see and Its awesome to see how people interact with each other. sharing, giving and learning is what its all about and I value my readers and supporters opinions and suggestions. Its what makes blogging so much more fun with a lot of interaction and all that jazz. The Internet has taught me a lot about so many things and its an educational and great invention and I am so happy from the inventors. Now we have a world of technology and a world of communication where we can share, comment, and do so many things in the internet community. All the best!
