First time visitors

Dear first time visitor

Thank you for coming to this page.

Initially, I wrote articles using WordPress [2004-2011] then moved to Google's Blogger [2011-2019] but they both had one weakness. Readers can't just choose the subjects they are interested in. So I decided to build my own website so I could give readers the option of just reading the subjects they are interested in. Consequently I lost readers in 131 countries as I had to start again from scratch.

Now I list my articles in separate subject categories so visitors can just choose the subjects which interest them.

This site is for all English speaking people (whether their first language or not - mine isn't) in the world. If my English seems to be a little simplified, please bear in mind that English is my third language.

Dating articles

When you visit, the home page will have two dates. The first is when a structural alteration has been made and the second, the date the last article was posted.

The main Article and Media pages are content pages, and these will have dates against each section of when the last article was posted in that section.

When you enter a section, you will see a list of all the articles in that section. This is when you find the date previous articles have been posted in the format of 20190405 as year (4) Month (2) Day (2) So, in this case the date was 5th April 2019.

I am not politically correct

I know I can be fairly terse at times, and apologies in advance. If you are offended, you can contact me under the "Contact" page and be offended again! [Alas I can't add a smiley with this program!]

My politics are my business, as your politics are yours. The political pages do not promote any party, rather it is ideas which would be nice if the party in government investigated said ideas!

Links, like the one below, are always in bold and have a faint line underneath them.

But don't go yet as there is an important announcement below!

There is a way you can get notifications of new posts automatically

There is a WhatsApp type of app for people who are not happy with the Big Brother attitudes of big corporations such as Facebook, Google, Twitter - to name but a few.

It is called Telegram and is available in the Android, iPhone or Windows phone app store. And, also has programs for Windows, Apple and Linux desktops and Notebooks. It has over 20m users.

Unlike WhatsApp which regularly gets hacked, Telegram has a reward of $200,000 (US) for anyone who can access viewers private information. This has not been claimed in six years.

Here's all you have to do

  1. Install Telegram
  2. Open it
  3. Type in @AmpersRants in the Search box
  4. When it comes up, click on it.

That's all you need to do to get to my @AmpersRants channel. You can leave it at any time.

Whenever I post a new article in my website, I also post a link direct to that article, a very short description and a title of the article. There's a reason for that order - the title is placed at the bottom by the system.

When you pull down your notifications in your phone, you will see a new article from Ampers Rants has been published. Click on it and you'll go into Telegram and can read a two line description of what it is about. Then either ignore it, or go and read it. You can also make a note to read it later.

It is so simple and so efficient!
