While it’s okay to look at what other people are doing, getting jealous of people whose stories you know nothing about is stupid. I like to think of competition as my watchdog. It has helped with my consistency. Finding balance as a blogger is the greatest lesson I learned through the years. Writing throughout the week but only posting during the week days and taking a break on Saturday and Sunday. The posts I wrote on the weekend would go straight to my posts bank to be useful when I wasn’t at a position to write.Read More
I’m one of the bloggers that finds silly excuses to put off writing for as long as I can. I know I’m a master at it because I can bore you with my endless lecture on the rituals I have to perform to convince my ancestors to let me write a one-page post I’ve postponed for monthsRead More

For someone who has been in the blogging world for more than six years, I do have some petty habits that are pretty embarrassing to even write about. I must say, I started off this year 2021 on the right foot, but as usual, life, as it always does, restored me to factory settings only three days in.Read More
Tell you what? I’ve made mistakes that have cost me money, time and even loyal blog followers. I look back and my eyes get teary when I realize that in fact all of the mistakes I made, could have been avoided if I only used my brain well.
As a newbie blogger, you’re likely to make the same mistakes I did or more Some extremely petty that they are embarrassing to list here. But I’ll try to compile some of my own blogging mistakes so you can learn from them.
That said, there’s obviously much more to blogging than just writing and I’m also still learning how to navigate all its spheres but I’m also excited to test the limits of what I can do and share my own experiences with you all.Read More

As I mentioned earlier, when I first started, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I thought I would just sign up for a Wp account and get straight into it but boy was I wrong.
