@WendyB189053    Hi Wendy-   I'd need more information to provide suggestions as to how to become an influencer. But I will say this:  It all starts creating very high quality content about something you know, adding great images, and engaging with your audience.  It's quite time consuming, but fun.  Start with whatever you feel you know best!

@c417168f    NOTE:  I am NOT an attorney. However, the minute I want to declare copyright I do the following.   I immediately start using the word COPYRIGHT, 2019 by Dian Griesel.   THEN, I put whatever I want to copyright in an envelope and mail it to myself from the Post Office.   When I receive the package, I DO NOT OPEN IT, and put it in a safe place in case there is ever copyright infringement.  The timestamp from the Post Office proves the date and the sealed package further verify.  I have never had to go to court--but I have done this with everything I've ever published. My attorney was who recommended this originally.

 

I don't know if your book is just photos.  But I'll stand by my original statement. There are many picture books without words. The problem with an 11 page book is that it cannot have a spine. So, it is just stapled.  But, the entire Berenstain Bears series of childrens books were done this way and they are perennial best-sellers!

I guess the number u had when you texted me was c417168f.  My email is 

nomatterwhata86@gmail.com  tried to get copyright for childs book.  They let me pay and 5 months later told me the book dosent have enough words to be covered under copyright text.   Dian you told me it can be done without any words for a 1 yr old. That there were lots of ways to do this and u think you said look up. A place fixri. It's not spelled correctly. Hope you can recall n retext it to me. I am not real computer literate and must have deleted you I instructions. Please re text

@Olif  Hi!  

Outside forces won't allow it? To this I say, Let the Force be with you.  Seriously. Not kidding around. It’s our job to own that we are the architects of our lives because as the saying goes, “Happiness is an inside job.” So, we all need to regularly review our plans, look at the tools we have, assess our skills and accrue whatever might be necessary to move positive forces for change in our direction. At the same time, maybe we need to ask others for help, advice, lessons, etc.-- knowing that nothing great was ever built alone.

@DianGriesel, how can one reinvent themselves when the outside forces won't allow one to do such?

Hi @AartiB319308  First, peace be with you.  I am happy to hear you are open to connecting with others.  There are a variety of places to start reaching out and connecting. I'm not sure where you live, but finding out what is going on at your local churche and synagogue is an option.  Another idea is looking into community centers-- which some towns have.  Perhaps checking out the local community college, if there is one, and signing up for a class in a subject that interests you. Many offer free or very inexpensive classes and this is a good way to meet people that you have something in common with. Do you have time for volunteer work?  Library's, schools, hospitals, food banks are all ways to meet others who also like to volunteer their time--and may be looking to connect.  Lastly-- keep your eyes open at coffee shops, diners and other spots! Sometimes we meet people when we least expect it.
