About Capitalist Concept
- What is Capitalist Concept?
My journal. This is not the kind of journal where I dish-out spontaneously, unfiltered thoughts. For that kind of writing, I use 750 words. Instead, as you can see in the diagram above, I primarily use this site for reflection after an experience. Similarly, but to a lesser degree, I also write when embarking on new adventures.
- Why did you choose Tumblr?
I wanted a platform where I could share and organize my thoughts easily. So I found Wordpress and Tumblr. Wordpress presented me with several customization options and widgets; however, Tumblr offered a more engaging community. I consciously chose the community. As Michael Ginsberg said in his interview with Don, “I just want to be apart of the place. I think it is on the way up.”
- Your articles are opinionated.
Listen to your gut, follow your heart, and speak your mind. As I write, I prefer taking an side. Coincidentally, the process helps me better understand the entire picture. That said, things change every day, and my opinions are no exception.
- Who are you?
In Belgium, there is a great brewery in an ancient monastery. The Abbott explains, “We are no brewers. We are monks. We brew beer to be able to afford being monks.”
I’m not a blogger. I am not an author. I am simply a (life-long) student who enjoys business and uses this site to improve business clarity.
Because of what I’m not, I don’t worry intensely about monetization, pageviews, and grammar. I am primarily focused on learning, sharing, and improving.
- Why are you anonymous?
Just like 007, I live a dangerous life- talking about whatever I want however and whenever I want to. Hence, “if I told you, I’d have to kill you”.
- Can you tell me more about yourself?
Hmmm. Read all of my articles and you’ll learn plenty about me. HERE are a few personal posts. Check out the main ones, if you’re interested:
- No really. What else?
2 things I really enjoy and haven’t mentioned else where are:
- Music - If you look to the left, you’ll see my Last.fm playlist. There is a direct connection between my personality and my playlist. As diverse as the genres are, I tend to gravitate towards electronic, house, jazz, rap, and hip hop.
- Gamification - I am a gamification aficionado. After all, games are the essence of entertainment.
- Will you follow me back?
Maybe. Originally, if you followed me, I followed back. That was a bad idea. Instead, I now focus on interaction, which is why I’m generous with my likes. If you really want a follow back, follow me on Twitter where I follow almost everyone back.
That said, I am still interested in my readers and that means, the more followers I get, the greater the number of sites I will follow.
- What are the categories?
Since archives and tags aren’t enough, I detailed the pages on the side of Capitalist Concept to make your navigation easier by organizing my posts.
There are 7 pages, including this one, on the left hand side of this site. These are the main categories where all my entries will be visible.
- How is this site organized?
Design matters. The material should easy to access and read. There are many popular sites that are very difficult to navigate through. For example, I stopped visiting Forbes because of their poorly designed advertisements and several other barriers like splitting their articles on multiple pages.
Archive and pages aren’t enough to increase accessibility. On a more micro level, I try to utilize bullet points and paragraphs keeping the readers in mind.
- Your grammar is terrible.
I apologize. I’m not a very good writer, but I’m great rewriter. (Pun Intended.) Since I post my first thoughts reflecting an experience on this platform, my grammar suffers. Eventually, I will go through old posts and edit. Additionally, I’ll hopefully become better at writing as my entries increase. Either way, feel free to suggest improvements or simply give it time.
