Farewell dGeneralist

Today, +Audrey Wright and I decided to leave the blog alone. At least for now. We have bigger projects and a lot of work to do and we feel +dGeneralist like a huge burden.

We liked the ride, but Blogspot is a shitty platform. Who knows, we might move to Wordpress or something better. Don't know why I chose it, but we are all sorry right now. To make the smallest changes it take a lot of effort. The whole visual style is directly on the page, so every time someone loads the blog, it loads all of the CSS, but not from a separate file.

Also, the redirects. It was then .com, then again and it was blogger, not blogspot. Google can't make up its mind. It's bad for optimisation.

This is not a final Goodbye. We will still post from time to time, but there won't be Silent Wednesday every week. There won't be regular posts (not that we had any of these lately). We will just write when we have something big to say.

I hope Audrey can say something more touching.

How Proper Video Marketing Is Done

I'm sure at least some of you are dealing with some form of marketing. I'm also sure, all of those have read countless marketing advice blogs and industry tips and tricks. And while some of them are proper and deserve time spent, most articles and videos you're going to watch are utter fertilizer.

Today I woke up to a splendid example of how you do marketing using mother's day as a leverage. One of Geoff's clients produced  a video about mother's day using a very unique and creative angle.

Dinosaurs Which Are More Joke-Worthy Than The T-Rex

"T-Rex hates pushups"
Aren't we a bit tired by all the Tyrannosaurus Rex jokes? OK, we get that the poor predator can't go to the toilet, can't use paper, can't take a selfie or it can't work out. The T-Rex was ferocious and could have killed you without using his arms. It was a big killing machine.

Death Bulge T-Rex comics

That's why I decided to give you a list of dinosaurs which deserve more mockery than the Tyrannosaurus.


To be honest, the Carnotaurus looks really awesome. It has devil horns right above the eyes, it has many teeth and it's a dangerous predator. It's quite fast and it could jump higher than you would expect.

But look at it's arms! They are barely visible. You have all this scary looks and then your prey notices the arms and starts laughing. Maybe that was the main strategy of this carnivore. Distracting you with laughter.
