1As warm WELCOME to new MYGERMANSHEPHERD PERIODICAL subscribers who haven't had a chance yet to get my books for free

...and any long-time subscribers who missed the historical chances?

I have just 100% discounted all my books at smashwords during smashwords' present Year-end promotion which ends sharply January 1, 2018.

100% discount means I made all of them FREE for you and your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, pals, gals, and even the pope too. - huh, does the pope have a dog at all, anyone knows? grin

Actually I am seeing that ONLY KRYSTAL left a review?? cry

This would help SO MUCH. Really!

My eyes and heart are hurting, again I am seeing that ONLY KRYSTAL left a review. cry

A book review is comparatively little to give back for all my work and my financial investment in this site. No? Think: every hour I work on your dog site I cannot earn income for myself, which fully explains my situation...

Sadly they aren't helpful at all anymore: For ALL my 18 books together I earned $33 the last month, to put towards your dog site. That does not pay a single bill towards the upkeep of this site. The reason is clear, it's a vicious circle: without book reviews the books don't get found in the book jungle... and so, no sales... no more reviews... no cash for marketing... no sales ... rolleyes

do thisSpeaking of that: Less than a handful of amazon accounts have recently ruined earlier 5-star reviews, systematically it seems, as it affects all my books. The books themselves haven't changed. How strange then that - all of a sudden - the books have become that bad, huh?

Just how awful can people be?! Oh dear, this world is not mine.

And without genuine new reviews my books cannot return to former glory.

 

2Now is the time again to say THANK YOU ALL for looking well after your dog during all of 2017!

REAL dog food stillAnd again gratitude to Mark for organizing shipment of the solar cooker - without which my dog Miguel and myself would still have to exist on cold peas, champignons, and a sausage, as we did for a year after I built the shell of my tiny house on a truck. We still live in that shell, until I get a chance to work on the interior.

 

32017 in review: In a word?

Horrible!

I've had not one, but three nerval breakdowns, all caused by the devastating situation of the site. And poor Miguel having to bear my stress level...

Meanwhile I did find out the deeper CAUSE of it: I read that Google got rid of their content-quality based search ranking and replaced it with a (primarily) load-speed based "mobile-friendliness" search ranking. Google is hip on all things mobile.

Which is why - you may have noticed - I recently gave this site an EXTRA MENU specifically for small mobile screens. While this will decrease "bounce rates", I can't make the site any faster (I think).

If you work in IT, can you maybe? Like for example "merging javascript files into one"??

do thisAs always, every bit of help much appreciated here.

 

4Quick addon, since you are here:

For the new youtube channel, Google now requires 100 subscribers before they even award a channel name/URL!

So, to get rid of the cryptic URL they gave me, who will help by becoming a channel subscriber?

Can you please raise your hand in the comments if you will?

I would then pass on that horrible URL only to those interested, and only once that gets changed I would post the final channel here.

 

5Also, I made the first app for MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG, with the superb site appypie (using their "free plan" of course, $33 book income doesn't take you anywhere).

But: I don't even have a smartphone to test the app myself, not even to look at it.

Who is willing to get the app from me, upload it to your mobile, and see if it works, how it looks, and give me feedback?

I got both an Apple file .ipa, and an Android file .apk - if either or both work, I'd love to give this free app to everyone who even only vaguely looks like (s)he has a dog. And to all shelters too, to be given to anyone who adopts their dogs.

Why?

'cause this app is so damn good of course! grin

 

Best New Year wishes,
Tim
