I have been blogging for over a decade and if you care to know, that’s my full time job—meaning, I make enough to pay for my expensive rent in UK, bills, car insurance and everything. I even paid for Law School with the revenue from my blogs; this is the reason why I did not […]
If your blog is up and running—and if you have started putting up some great contents, I am sure you’ve started thinking about making some money from your blog. If nothing at all, to pay for the cost of your hosting—for a start, and to also pay for your internet bills. When I started blogging, […]
One thing I hate is to visit a messed up blog. The moment I visit a blog which looks too amateur, and not well thought about in terms of design, I simply close the browser. I am not the only one who does this, everyone wants to be greeted with elegance and if you do […]
Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri, Founding Editor of GhanaCelebrities.Com will be coming back to Ghana, after he just spent the weekend in Ghana solely to party with the stars and write a blog on the Bola Ray at 40 Party, which took place at Royal Senchi Resort.
Yeah; he lives in London but his blog and name is known in Ghana and beyond. He’s paid a lot of money to travel around the world, to just be at events and write on them.
This is because of his blogging excellence, the success of his blog and the fact that his blogs are popular.
He has created blogs for over 500 Ghanaians, helping them start an online business to earn money. He even created his friend Ameyaw Debrah’s blog for him and he continues to do this for a lot of people for FREE.
While in Ghana, he has agreed to host a 2-hour conversation on how to make money online—looking at blogs and other ventures such as e-commerce. Read more →
Yesterday, I watched a documentary on Netflix titled Minimalism which looked at how a growing number of people in America have decided to break away from the ‘American dream’ which largely equates success to possessions—without any real evaluation of what really makes an individual happy. Many of the people in the documentary had left their 6 figure paying jobs which made them miserable to live the ‘minimalist lifestyle’–having found content in that.
Personally, I’ve been on a slow journey to becoming a full blown minimalist—some friends think I am already there but I believe I can do more when it comes to minimising how much I have and the sort of importance I place on materialistic possessions.
Currently, I own just two pairs of Topman jeans (I bought two of the same kind so you cannot even see the difference), about 15 white-long sleeve shirts, a few T-shirts and about 5 coloured long-sleeve shirts. I have about 3 pairs of shoes and a lot of boxer shorts.
I mean, the above is my entire wardrobe—if you add my 3 blazers and 3 suits. Even this, I feel they are too many for one person and I will use the next few weeks to get rid of as many as possible. I want to be able to live on 33 items all together.
A few years ago, I used to be a complete IDIO, just like many people who harbour an unquenchable desire to buy and own more things—with the market continuously ensuring that they are never satisfied with what they already have.
It’s everywhere around us in a form of advertisement: you may have the latest iPhone but within 6 months, another will be on the market, making yours old. As human beings, we have a sickening desire for goods and services—and this insatiable desire is what’s being exploited by the markets around us, which has given birth to consumerism.
For many years, we’ve equated human success and happiness to material things when it’s clear around us that, this is not true and a person’s happiness level does not increase proportionately with an increase in money or material things. Read more →
Globally, retailers are going crazy today with huge sale offers–and as always, if you want to buy something, you have 24 hours slot to get the best bargain ever. So if you ever wanted to start a blog, this is the hour to kick-start it.
Blogging has been my source of income for the last few years. I make enough to pay for my expensive rent in UK, bills, car insurance and everything.
I even paid for Law School with the revenue from my blogs; this is the reason why I did not take any student loan in the United Kingdom.
And it cost a hell lot of money to go through the Law School—so this should give you an idea as to the limitless revenue potential of any blog.
My sister quit her job as a nurse in Ghana late last year to become a blogger and she is making three times the salary she earned as a nurse in just 2 and half months—and she just started so she will soon be racking things up. Read more →
Surely, website visitors are right to an extent to take control of what they want to be served with but it does seem like they do not fully take into consideration how those behind these websites they visit are able to dedicate efforts and time to producing the content they love.
The rise in adblockers signifies one thing: it’s time for web publishers to also change how they monetise their contents—since banner and native advertisements are being controlled by visitors. Read more →
