Networking Essential For A Successful Crowdfunder And Developing Such A Network Is It's Purpose


As you can see I am doing a crowdfunder in an attempt to raise the resources to take advantage of a 50% discount on iuniversal's program for self publishers. It is no surprise that I raised no funds on the first day because I am what you call an outlier blogger, which means in essence that I am not connected to a network of people working or supporting what I do. My mission in bringing the information and point of view that I present in my blog is to affect change in the entrenched political paradigm in Maine, and the USA,including the media. Crowdfunding depends on networking and I lack a network, which is why I want to be part of the Iuniversal program, a program which connects self published authors to community of professionals in the self publishing industry.It will help to build a network.

I do not get paid for writing my blog and so it is not easy to find the time and focus to put the information I have gathered and the ideas that I have developed into a book form, especially when I find myself spending more and more of my time commenting on current bills and issues that arise. The iuniversal program can provide a community with which I can connect on this project helping to maintain the focus needed to bring the book into being:

When you publish with iUniverse, you not only partner with one of the most well-known organizations in the industry, but you also receive unique supported self-publishing benefits.

Here are just a few of the advantages you'll discover as an iUniverse author:
  • Extensive editorial tools that maximize your book's potential for success
  • Innovative partner services with traditional publishers and well-known organizations, such as Tarcher, Berrett-Koehler and Indigo Chapters, to keep you ahead in the marketplace
At iUniverse, we help you develop your book into a professional product that readers, agents and reviewers can appreciate. Our publishing options are designed to offer you the support and tools that best fit your book's needs. You can also find more information about iUniverse and review all of our publishing options at

I would like to have the book out in the months before the next election season, Political campaigns must be in the works long before I am anticipating publishing my book but I expect there to be more bonds on the ballot. The bonds will be sold to Mainers as "job creation" . If you read the actual text of the bond bill. it will probably tell you that the bonds will be processed through the same state corporations that redistribute the taxpayers money to the new owners of the means of production, which I have written about on my blog. The fiscal information will not accompany the bond question on the ballot as required by Maine Constitution because in 2013 the Maine legislature passed a statute over riding the Maine Constitution by directing that information to be placed "somewhere outside the guardrail" which means "outside the voting area". There are no instructions in that statute stating how to let the public know that information is available and where it is to be found.

The other reason for wanting to publish a book is to preserve the research I have done and the view on the historical transformation of Maine which I have expressed in a more permament form so that  that the work I have done can continue to have a life of its own, even after I am gone.

The total cost of the program is about $800.00 with the discount. To take advantage of that discount I  need $300.00 by Monday. To keep the money I raise from the crowdfunder even if I do not meet my goal, I need to raise $500.00 and to be able to publish stories on Beacon I need to successfully reach my goal of $800.00.

Please consider being a backer of my book publishing crowdfunder. If you can only make a small contribution, that is appreciated. If you can afford to make a large contribution that will help to make up for the fact that I do not currently have a network of support needed for a successful crowdfunder. The goal of this crowdfunder is to pay for a subscription to a community that can help me to develop such a network.

You can click on the ad for my crowdfunder found at the top of the side panel on my blog to make a contribution.

Thank You,

Communism and State Ownership of Intellectual Property

Tweet This: Government As a Secret Society The response to my informal suggestion that public accessibility to government could be improved by making information available in a searchable data base ( see previous post) subjectively confirmed that the  functioning power elite of Maine's economic development programs and policies are both intentional in instituting a political ideology that supersedes the will of the people, as expressed in the Maine State Constitution, and deceptive towards the general public. 1.Information made available on an agency website but not in a searchable database format may not provide the research and investigative tool needed by the public. The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available. While there is a strong argument for increasing the accessibility and usefulness of information, there is no current requ

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory . In the   fall of 2020,  National Affairs  published a story,  Does the Debt Matter ? by Peter Wehner & Ian Tufts. Peter Wehner is vice president and senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and served in the last three Republican administrations. Ian Tufts is a recent g

Which Currency will Emerge as Most Valued in the New World Order ?

pascal-meier-unsplash Also published on Medium;s Data Driven Investor I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted. Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base fre
