Johntext News by H.-J. John

Oh, how motivated I was! And I still am.

However, my perspective on writing at Johntext is now more realistic. The more we deal with problems and search for possible solutions, the more varied and multifaceted the matter becomes.

It is as if we were faced with a mountain to climb, then climb it, and once at the summit we can see the skyline of the Himalayas. Impossible for a person all by oneself. Only manageable in a team.

Hence, as a logical conclusion Johntext is now being established on the pillars of worldwide teams.

For many years I have been wondering what the blue entrance page at www.johntext.de is for, apart from containing country flags. Now I know.

It is going to have a map of the world.  Ideally, Johntext will gradually be selecting one writer/author as an example for his country.

These authors will have shown through social commitment that they know what it is all about: the specific problems of people in their home countries and possible solutions.

And if the reader moves the mouse across the world map of www.johntext.de, a photo will open up for every country in which people who write for a good cause have been found. The photo of a dedicated writer as a link and a gate to a remote, strange and interesting world.

In Germany, people have different immediate concerns and needs than people in South Africa, or at least they might weigh them differently.

In the United States of America, I suppose, the priorities of adolescents are different from those of their counterparts in Switzerland.

This world poses different challenges for people and their lives in almost every country. It is therefore insufficient to address the problems of this world in isolation starting exclusively from a central European viewpoint.

Together, however, people create great things for themselves and for others.

Special thanks go to my literary agent, Axel Poldner. 

Many thanks to the johntext team:

Diana Wössner (psychologist)

Achim  Wendt und Martin Becker (co-authors)

Kathrin Drescher (webmaster)

I wish all interested readers an enjoyable day full of challenges and motivating experiences!

Sincerely, Hans-Jürgen John

J o h n t e x t – Trademark registration

Here are a few organizational news items:

The commissioning of the trademark registration of “J o h n t e x t” in the fall of this year marked an important step in establishing and positioning the site.

The office LÜBECK – Accountants – Solicitors in Frankfurt am Main, accessible online at www.luebeckonline.com and highly recommendable, agreed to initiate the application process.

Such a trademark application is an interesting thing. On the website of the office you can immediately check whether a trademark is still available or whether it is already protected elsewhere.

Prior to this, a professional online shop (Shopware) was purchased and installed at www.johntext.co.uk.

This shop is suitable and intended for the distribution of texts and literature of the “J o h n t e x t” brand. It will go online after the trademark registration is complete.

I wish all readers of  J o h n t e x t  a beautiful, peaceful evening surrounded by friends or family.

Sincerely, Hans-Jürgen John
