Writing Resource

Byteful Travel presents How to Create a Hit in Any Artistic Medium posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “Believe it or not, I have absolutely no idea which of my works will become popular on the web and which will be ignored. And if you’re honest with yourself, you don’t either. Sure, some people invest lots of money in SEO, but when creative work is approached with search engines in mind first and people second, it too often becomes only a temporary delight and doesn’t help you grow your audience or your credibility. So how do you create a “hit”? Here’s the secret: You have to be prolific before you can enter the magic.”

Byteful Travel presents Japanese Tea Garden Review: Home of San Francisco’s Hidden Sea Monster posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “San Francisco, CA – At first glance, the Japanese Tea Garden nestled within Golden Gate Park seems innocent enough.

What you don’t know is that the Japanese Tea Garden is home to a disguised Sea Monster, hidden in plain sight. And somehow, it’s still a place of Zen.”
