They All Watch

As the Nike slogan says, “ Just Do It” and also as Shia LeBouf says in the that one video of saying “Just Do It”.

We should be doing what we want to do. The reason for that is time is ticking away and you know tomorrow is never promised.

The chances you’re ready to do something new or invest in something new is 0 to none.

It’s human nature to do something for the first time & to not to be ready for something.

It happens to the best of us. So, whoever is not getting as many likes or comments on their blog posts or their content that they create, it’s alright.

Keep putting your work out there.

most people do not like or comment-

but THEY ALL WATCH.

That is right, we tend to watch work we see and not support. Whatever the case maybe, keep putting work out there. You will find your audience someday that it caters too.

I used to feel this way when it comes to putting out my blog posts. 1 view a day and it kept repetitive. I almost wanted to quit and never write anything again.

But, that’s not who I am. I am not someone who falls down when it gets tough. Just simply need to rethink the strategy of what I am doing wrong and how to rethink my branding of who I am as a blog. The more and more you write, it will find the people that needs to find.

Now, I am starting to get more views on my blog for someone who doesn’t have 100 or 1000s of followers on it.

People will watch & lurk regardless of the thing see do.

Eyes in the shadows watching & surveying our every move from afar without saying a word.

Life Has No Rules: Create & Enjoy

Life has no rules. It’s like when the movie Purge came out.

There were no rules for us to follow & abide by. You just create and enjoy the course of action that’s going to happen.

Life is unprecedented & unexpected. The person you love the most can die the next moment & you can wake up the best news of your life tomorrow.

See? That’s how crazy life is, anything can happen & literally you won’t expect half the things you plan out to come true.

Life is harder than we make it and the rules we create our governed by us. If you think about it, life is harder than we make it which is funny to think about. If life is this hard to live, then death must be easy. Not trying to contradict to a point but our capitalistic society make us take materialistic things more important than we actually know.

Rules are important so an outbreak & riots don’t disturb the piece but most rules take most power in the system. So, we have to decide what we are truly following. Once you think about it, we can really do whatever we want.

Create to inspire and to be remembered for what you truly want. That’s the true meaning of life. Insanity of doing something only you find pride in is crazy to think about. Clarity of a situation in the moment of thinking it was impossible.

We are just particles in a space of matter.

There’s gotta be more to life than just pointless schooling & working forever. Creating less than your potential is disrespectful to those that believe in you.

Create your own set of rules.

How to Start a Blog: A No-Nonsense Guide for Beginners

A blog is a site you can express yourself and do everyone.

You can either blog to express how you feel about yourself or you can monetize it.

Now, the title, when you look at it, is a no-nonsense guide but, I’ll just tell you what you truly need to know about having a blog and content.

First, you need a web hosting site like host gator or godaddy to secure a domain for your site. You can either make it generic or easy to remember. In short, I would make it have a ring to it so you can easily remember it. All the best blogs have a easy domain name to remember from lifestyle to food blogs.

Then, you need to pick your niche. The type of space you want to be in. For example, you could talk about food, exercise, technology, etc. Anything you’re knowledgeable about. Once you have that prior knowledge, you need to optimize your posts.

That optimization is called SEO. Search engine optimization. That’s how you reach people with your blog with certain keywords, number of words in a post, images, etc. All those factor in your blog posts and generate organic traffic for your blog. Without that, I wouldn’t have made it as far as I am today. Use SEO as much as you can in your blog and traffic to your site will gain traffic over time.

Having a blog identity is another tip of what I want to give you. I say this because not many people have an identity when it comes to writing. It shows you who you’re & your style of writing. A main reason why people are differentiated from their local blogger.

Use images. I can’t stress this enough, using images will give the reader a clear cut view of what you’re talking about. Some people need visuals in order to understand what you’re saying anyways.

Last but not least, you need to be consistent in your writing. Continuously need to write content each and every day or post your work every week. You will never get by in this space w/o posting unless you’re already popular. It’s the sad truth. Keep posting your content with tags relevant to the topics you’re talking about to gain more reach and it allows new viewers to see the work you’re doing. It will all help in the end.

If you need any help or questions, feel to comment or message me so I can help you develop the blog you’ve always been waiting to create.

It’s 2021, this year is for the taking my friends.

Focus On Learning and Creating

Focus on learning and creating.

Now, that’s not ideal for everyone.

Then, you think, why’s that?

In a consumer society, that’s the last thing we want to do.

Also, it doesn’t pertain to what we want at all.

We spend so much of our time consuming.

Consuming pointless information in our day to day lives.

So, why not learn something new?

Even though, that learning might not benefit us, we should still learn something new.

Although, its not ideal.

While, our best friend Jim is watching Netflix.

They say everything is good in moderation.

So, don’t even feel bad.

Learning something new excites the eye.

Then, you see a whole new world.

Focus on learning and creating.

I wasn’t always like this you know.

I used to watch Saturday morning cartoons and stayed up and played video games.

So, yes, me saying that defeats the purpose of this article.

Now, don’t get mad, I am just being transparent.

Transparency is needed more online nowadays.

Learn more than you consume.

Consumerist societies are the backbone of societies.

We never create unless we are told.

While, this lets our creativity die out.

I absolutely hate that idea and it shouldn’t be like this.

So, do what the 99% of others won’t do.

Then, implement it in your life.

You need to Create and Learn

Focusing On Learning and Creating

Creators bring more to the table.

As we speak you’re consuming rather than creating.

Although, I may be wrong.

Creating just feels right.

After, you create a repetitive cycle happens.

It repeats over and over again.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

Even though, you may seem lost but create for the better.

Life will change for you.

Life will change at a pace you didn’t realize.

Creators are some of your favorite people.

Bloggers like me, You-tubers, influence-rs, etc.

Create till you can’t no more.
