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.

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...

Attracting Audience to your blog

Although I must agree that paid marketing is a good investment, there are many cheaper alternatives to attract visitors to your blog. What type of visitors depend solely on you, so is maintaining the interaction.  Regardless, how do you go by attracting visitors to your blog without paying $300-$900 every month? You are what you attract – Many of us have a particular audience in mind when we write, after all we are marketing ourselves to the world.

Hashtags – A friend of mine introduced me to hashtags months ...

Failure is apart of success

Oh, lort! Isn't it Saturday yet?  Wait… What am I saying? I need to quit thinking like this and think of it this way, it’s a new day to try something new. Sounds better, right? There I was scrolling through Instagram, minding my own business and bucked up on a post that said: “When a child is learning to walk and falls 50 times, they never think to themselves, “Maybe this isn’t for me.” I thought about it for the longest while and decided the best thing for me to do is write about it. I have been learning about myself over the past two years and I was finally able to announce to my mother what I want to be at the age of 21. Can you believe that? On a side note, I was unable to answer that question all my life. I have been dabbling in things that made me money...
