Yianni Stamas Deconstructs December 18 Also Known as International Migrants Day

The Difficulties Due to COVID-19

Blog Coalition, consisting of nearly 60 blogs (as of this date), is committed to the cause of helping those who are migrating to our country. Building awarness is very important which is something this brief article, as well as other blogs participating in the coalition. In its most simple definition, December 18, International Migrants Day that offers a new pathway for many migrants seeking a better life in the United States of America. In a world where some countries practice exploitation and trafficking, the USA is a place where serenity is practiced. But, this process has become increasing difficult due to COVID-19.

Protection of Rights

This has lead to even hire evictions, losses and discrimination. International Migrants Day gives a healthy alternative for migrants seeking a better life. The day, December 18, was chosen due to it being the anniversary of the 1990 adoption by the International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families.

Opportunity for All

UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon put it this way:

“On this International Migrants Day, I call on the international community to act on the global compact on safe, regular and orderly migration as an important contribution to building a world of peace, prosperity, dignity and opportunity for all.”


More Time Between Updates

We’ve been asked by readers why is there more time between updates? As you may recall if you are a regular viewer of this site that we used to update daily but now we are on a monthly schedule. Why? Because we’ve decided to take much needed break from the daily grind and have handed the reigns over to Home Business Achievers who are a good match for what we have been doing, which is standing up for those with Home Businesses. We feel that Home Business Achievers are going to run with the ball and make a touchdown. They will be doing primarily online marketing coverage on topics such as email marketing like this:

Why get people to sign up for your newsletter? Some folks do this because if the thing you are selling is hard to get a result for immediately, by having them on your email list means you can supply both with very useful information, but also a “P.S.” each time contain what you are selling. If you continually provide them with the newsletter material they need, they become more likely to buy from you.

Once you have your video as well as your digital product or service ready, you can move onto the next step which is to put this multifaceted undertaking live. If by the way, you are not making available a digital product, these same techniques can be used by you to get clients or customers for your business. So whatever kind of business you are in, online or offline, you must set your selling machine that you have created into action.

How do you get future customers to your sales machine? There are two possibilities. The free way to do it is through SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so your future leads find you when they need what you offer. The problem with this approach, unless you already know how to do it, is that it takes a while to learn how to do it.


Feeling Very Un-Zen Today

I’m worried that these rocks are going to fall off and hit me on the foot.

I’m not really feeling out of sorts today, it’s just that I am going all-in on an idea I have for a market I know exists and that I could help. Even with the competition, I believe my idea will prevail. We’ll see. I guess I’m kind of nervous about it because it involves a big commitment on my part.

There is another ambulance siren out there here as I write this in NYC. Someone is sick. Do they have Covid-19? If I seem a little down today, what I am about to show you is not muck of a picker uper. Here’s the latest from DIYdigi.

Per request, here is something on Thrillumentary.

And finally, we close with the Stamas Bros. What happened to them being funny? At least they’re riding bikes.


The Only Constant is Change

Do You Make Change or Does Change Make You?

Many of us have heard the saying that “The only constant is change.” But you have to ask yourself the question of whether or not you are a conscious part of that change or does change merely happen to you?

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” — Gandhi

A Win-Win Scenario

Today’s edition of DIYdigi looks at the concept of using marketing to create the change while simultaneously advancing your career or business. There’s nothing wrong with a win-win scenario.

Save Money

Saving money is a big part of running a business and as seen at Art Gush is a way to be a part of making a change.

The Meaning of Marketing

The blog Artisticpreneur has a post today about the meaning that marketing can have in your life.


Breaking News All Hands on Deck

Calling all bloggers, please cover the story that the mainstream press is not.

All We ask is that You Consider Opening Your Eyes

Breaking news, all hands on deck. Hopefully that’s what our government is doing. Things are going on in America that if we don’t take action, we are quite frankly, well, screwed. COVID-19 has been a form of magician misdirection. While we focus on whether or not we can go outside or not, other bad things are happening in the background and appear to be largely not noticed as dangerous by both Democrats and Republicans. As of right now there are NOT a lot of news outlets or even blogs, that are covering this story. One of the few that is, is our daily resource known as Manhattan Coronavirus.

Parents Wake Up

If you are a parent who is doing the best job you can raising your child (as is the dad in today’s post at Manhattan Kids Guide) you might be doing well by your family to put your feelers out. It is one thing to unite with peaceful protestors, but another to turn a blind eye to those who are setting up shop for chaos.

Advanced Conjurers

This is a moment in time where we can focus on being entertained, such as by a MagicPreneur, when we would probably be better served by taking note of the misdirection in play by advanced conjurers.


Neighbors are Those Who Share

Sharing from a Distance

Our friends at Manhattan Coronavirus are only seeing the world through their window, being that they have been in quarantine for 96 days. During this time a revolution has arrived which they sharing in from a distance.


On the other hand, those at Magic Neighbors are more direct in their sharing. The current post by them explores the great things that are starting to exist for justice.


There is the hope by the force behind Lights Camera Read that those reading their latest post will be inspired to write a book. A book that possibly shares about the changes that are happening all around us. Are YOU sharing enough? Try sharing today!


The Not New Normal


We like to think about this blog about blogs that we are bringing to people some of the stories of New York City and beyond. The protests in NYC changed a lot. The focus was taken off of public safety and onto justice. In times like these the city can be in an unrest, but then as things start to “normalize,” hopefully that which was being sought is actualized. We’ll see. Sadly the country is even more divided. This has brought out the best in some people. If you haven’t seen the Trevor Noah video yet you should really check it out. He puts everything into perspective better than any of our politicians. And some are still in lockdown such as our friends of the Manhattan Coronavirus blog.


Entertainment often involves storytelling and even in these turbulent times we sometimes need to pause. A great way to rest sometimes is to see some entertainment to take our minds off of things. Although live entertainment has still not really come back, you can always check out a magician or even a mentalist online. One of our favorite online publications that actually gives a behind the scenes look at mentalism is Invent Mentalism.

Taking it Seriously

We’ve talked thus far a little about the seeking of justice and one neighborhood in Manhattan that is doing this very seriously is Inwood Manhattan. What are their stories?


Change Takes its Toll

What kind of changes have you had due to the Pandemic?

Today’s Lineup

Change takes its toll but in different ways in the blogs “Manhattan Coronavirus,” “Entertainment Entrepreneurship,” and even “Harry Potter Fan Club NYC.”

Will They Leave Their Apartment?

In Manhattan Coronavirus it is brought to our attention that tomorrow is for some, the stepping out of lockdown. Will this quarantine family follow suit and venture out of doors?

Are You an ArtisticPreneur?

Whereas in Entertainment Entrepreneurship change manifests in the form of artists having to become entrepreneurs, also known as artisticpreneurs.

Hard to Quench the Thirst of Fans

And finally in Harry Potter Fan Club NYC we see the changes fans have to bear such as a Broadway Show being cancelled because of COVID-19.
