Alien Invasion?

Alien Invasion?

Relax; it’s not an alien invasion.  What’s your first thought when you look at the image?  Many see an alien hiding in a human’s body; others see an alien removing skin.  I see neither. I see what many of us are going through every day. We are living a life that is totally different from the one we envisage ourselves in.  We show one side of ourselves to the world, the persona we created and perfected just so we can fit in with everyone else, not knowing it is okay to be different, be an alien.  We eventually become a person that we don’t even recognize when we look in the mirror. We get mentally, physically, and emotionally distorted, confused, and uncomfortable. It’s sad because it is true; many people not only in Jamaica, but across the world are forced to hide in plain sight or chan...

Relationship Cycle

Have you ever realized the cycle of a relationship? Wait, did you even realize that relationships are a cycle? It's funny isn’t it? You meet someone, you’re scared of opening yourself him to him/her; you finally tear down your walls and allow that person in. Your trust and confidence grow and even though you doubt yourself, you decide to go against your instinct and show full-blown love to your partner. You’ve been through the late night calls, the early morning messages; you’ve lost hours of sleep just to talk to the significant other. The willingness to drop any and everything you are doing to be by their side. The time spent telling jokes, laughing, eating, and meeting friends and family. It may not be obvious the first few times but things begin to change, we received si...

Maintaining Viewership

In the previous article, Attracting Audience to your blog, we discussed ways in which we can attract viewers to our blog without spending a dime. We discussed quality over quantity, using hashtags, being social on social media, not overthinking, promoting yourself, and being what you hope to attract.  In this article, we will discuss how to maintain viewers. Admit it, promoting your blog is one long, stressful task, but let’s be real it is the easiest part. Maintaining audience engagement must be the hardest part in my opinion, it entails you keeping the audience on their toes, or keep their mouths watering which requires you to stay busy.  The google dictionary defines the word maintain as cause or enable (a condition or state of affairs) to continue which in essence means to keep someth...

Read this before you quit

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for” I have been wondering what I’m doing with my life and what my next step will be ever since 2018 started. The crazy thing is that even though I know what I want and how to get there, sometimes I feel like I’m not seeing the results I want. There are times when I want to give up on pursuing my dreams but then I think about my job right now and living the rest of my life as an employee; it really depresses me. There is no way I can stop now. I ask myself, “Why am I so lazy? Why do I procrastinate so much? Do I know how much I could achieve if I stop quitting and just do? How will I feel next year this time?” Then, there are times of the month when I feel extremely tired; it’s ridiculous. It’s like I exhaust myself du...
