GENEVA BUSINESS INSIDER – HAPPY BIRTHDAY
It is now one year this week since I started the Blog and time to celebrate.
I started with the idea of writing short one page comments, on subjects where I thought the information available through the “MSM” main stream media, were wrong, incomplete or misleading, with a view to better informing readers on the financial political and economic issues, which affect our daily lives.
My objective was to demystify and simplify the information pumped out by the MSM, politicians, governments, bankers and central bankers, so that a normal person, if they were willing to invest some time, could understand the true issues.
As a result of these short articles I was asked on to a local financial television station in Geneva, and subsequently was approached by various TV and radio stations in Europe, and the US and Japan, to do the same.
I have come to realize that the radio and TV media are infinitely more effective means of communication and for the past several months have concentrated on this approach. The central theme of factual, transparent, honest information on subjects I know well, has really paid off, between the TV, radio, You tube video’s etc.
It has been a fascinating experience. I have been amazed at the response and the absolutely explosive growth in the listener-ship from literally zero, to tens of thousands a month and rising.
I attribute this to the audience who realize that they are being duped on a daily basis and are anxiously seeking alternative sources of information. Fortunately we have the great power of the internet at our disposal, through which everybody can educate and inform themselves. Many governments around the world wish to limit or regulate or censor this medium. This should be resisted at all costs.
My experience has taught me that we can all become Bloggers and radio and TV broadcasters, should we so desire. The entry cost is very low, I have a Mac Book Pro and use standard Mac software. I also use Skype and you can post the end product on your Blog or You tube as the case may be.
If there are any budding Bloggers who wish to interview me on a subject I know about, I would be pleased to hear from you.
I attach a link to an extract from a recent radio broadcast where I talk about the experience.
Thank for you once again your interest and support, and to my family and friends who have encouraged me in this venture.
