Twelve Basic Tools That Make Great Content On Web

Quality Content

     Just having a website and content on it is not enough. It should be of good quality.  Writing great content is a choice. You can choose to put in the time and work required to create great content and build a prosperous brand. Or you can choose to take the easy path and write poor content – a path that ultimately will get you nowhere. It will only result in a waste of time, energy and resources.

    Visitors don’t like a site with low quality content. For this reason search engines are continuously looking for websites with low quality content and penalizing them. In such a scenario, unless you prove your website as a dependable source of information, your site will not be able to reach your audience. In order to become a trusted source of information you need to create content with utmost care.
Writing quality content will epp boost SEO rankings, gain traffic, lead and earn.

I don't think we need to talk much on that, let's go straight to the purpose of this post;

Twelve Basic Tools That Make Great Content On Web


* Always Focus On Creating A Catchy Headlines


  What shall it profit a man that uses the whole of his time to write quality content without readers? A good headline sparks interest and invites readers in. Only 48% out of 100% will read the main article in the post, but 98% of audience will read your headline. And that is why the headline is even more important than the article itself.
Spend more time with your headlines. Olagold says ‘Try giving your post a catchy headline’ 
If possible, make a few and select which one you like best, because they are the first thing people read, and they are the basis those people use to decide if they want to read your article or not.

* Put your most important information first
Writing for the web is completely different from writing an essay.
An essay might go like this: First, explain what you’re going to discuss. Then, present an overview of the literature. Next, discuss; and finally draw your conclusion. The most important point you make is in the conclusion – at the end of your essay!
On web pages you have to do the opposite: your most important points always come first.
Information that’s most important to your web visitors is often a simple statement of what you do. Once they understand what you do, they might want to know some important details. And then – maybe they’d like to know some background information.
Journalists call this way of writing the inverted pyramid. In newspaper articles the most newsworthy information comes first before details and background information. Even if you only read the first paragraph of a newspaper story you still understand the big picture.
It’s the same on your website. Your customers want to know the big picture first. Basically: What do you do? Or what can you do for them?

* Images and Video Is Also a Powerful Tool
   You know that people learn differently. Some people learn better by seeing, while others learn better by hearing. What’s important is that no one learns less by having visual aids. Whether you use pictures, videos, or diagrams, they can help illustrate your point.
Whatever you’re writing about, add pictures. No one wants to look at paragraphs of text, unless you’re writing a book. However, only add images that help or add value. And please – for the love of your readership – stay away from unnecessary stock photography!

* Be Accurate in Your Reporting and Sourcing of Information
   Think about this: you write an article for your company’s blog, thousands of people read it, and some of what you wrote turns out to be inaccurate. Can you imagine what damage this can do to your company and your personal reputation? Keep in mind, your blog is a reflection of your company. If there are any issues with the blog, it impacts how people view your product.
It’s important that any statistic you state can be verified. Many blog posts will link right to the statistic and the source.
Accuracy builds trust with readers.

* Update your links.
   Every single page on your website should link to other pages — not only does this help you boost the rankings of the pages you link to, it also gets users hopping around on your site and spending more time there. When you bake internal link building into your content, your most writers will keep this in mind when creating web content, but what they’ll often forget to do is revisit older posts and pages to update them with new links.
* Write for lazy Ones
   I know this might sound somehow funny, it’s a thing I have tried several times and it works for me. Just like the lazy panther looks for an easy catch for his dinner, your blog/website visitor doesn’t want to make an effort to read your text.
You must make your article easy to read and understand.
How short should your text be? I think your text should not exceed 500 to 700 words because your readers are such a lazy type. They have no time to waste on a page. So you need to be wise!
NOTE:  If your site is a story telling kind, you need to post like 850 to 1000 words because your reader won’t like to just read few lines and go

* Create Engaging and Thought Provoking Content
   An engaged audience hangs on to your every word and takes in all that you write or say. But the only way to get an engaged audience is to make engaging content. It all starts with you and what you write. Here are a few tips to help you write engaging content:
  - Leave readers with questions.
  - Have an important and promising introduction.
  - A final tip on this point: If you provide content that sparks a flurry of comments, the search engines will notice that your post is important and is being updated regularly. This is a great way to get the engines to come back to your site more frequently.

* Be Able to Provide Answers
   What is the ultimate purpose of a search engine? Most people would be correct in saying “to deliver sets of answers.” Google is great at this. Type a query into Google and you’ll be presented with links, pictures, and videos.
When people use a search engine, what they ultimately want is an answer, and it’s the search engine’s job to deliver that answer.
It’s the same when people are reading a blog post, viewing an infographic or watching a video, they want an answer so they can gain knowledge. An additional tip here is: people don’t just want answers; they want fast, direct and knowledgeable answers. So make your content easy to scan, so people can pick up the juicy, important bits quickly

* Use simple and familiar words
    This tool is also one of the best tools to use while writing a blog post. As Web readers, we are hunter-gatherers once again – only this time, instead of scanning the horizon for prey, we scan pages for carewords.
Most people search for cheap flights
Carewords are the words people are looking for. We often like to make ourselves sound better than we are. We try to embellish what we do. We try to sound scientific, fancy or special. But your web visitor is looking for familiar words – carewords – because they’re the scent trail that tells him he’s in the right place.

* Dictionary.com is your friend — so visit the site often.
   When writing a great content for your blog, your words, arrangement and grammatical construction are very important. You’d be amazed at how many words people misuse on a regular basis. For instance, peruse probably doesn’t mean what you think it does (in fact, it’s probably the opposite). Never use words unless you’re absolutely certain of their meaning.

* Make Regular Updates to Your Blog
   When talking about Having a successful blog, Regular update cannot be over emphasized. Starting a blog is a commitment. While you can write a couple of posts and then abandon the work, you won’t get many readers or new customers. Not just that, but search engines don’t favor sites that aren’t regularly updated.
    If you have a blog or site, you need to update it regularly with great content. Many of the best content sites are regularly updated.
How often should your blog or site be updated?
That’s up to you. Everyone has different resources and priorities. I normally update my blog Five days per week and each day I post, I will try to upload at least three articles. You should try making an effort to update your blog at least three (3) times per week.

Conclusively:  Not only does great content make a better website, it also improves your site’s rankings, which can have a very positive impact on your business. One more tool I forgot to add is that, you must try to make your content an evergreen type.
As mentioned, original content goes a long way with Google and your visitors. Copying other people’s content will result in a punishment from Google, which can crush your bottom line.

14 dead in Niger, 11 in Ivory Coast


At least 14 people, mostly children, have died in Niger and 11 in Ivory Coast after heavy rains this week triggered landslides and caused homes to collapse, UN and local officials said Friday.

The flooding in Niger's capital Niamey caused houses to collapse, killing 14 people, most of them children
The UN's humanitarian affairs office OCHA said 14 people had died when houses collapsed in Niger's capital Niamey with another four missing. Nine children were reported dead there earlier this week.
In Ivory Coast's economic capital, Abidjan, the toll from the rains climbed from eight to 11 on Friday, with one person unaccounted for and hundreds affected by landslides and flooding, rescue workers said.
"If the rain continues, we're going to have a lot to do," said Vital Oulai who runs the military firefighting unit.
West Africa's rainy season, which lasts three to four months, regularly causes fatalities and damage across Abidjan's hillside shack communities, with 16 people killed last year and 39 in 2014.
In Niger, this week's rain destroyed 350 homes, leaving 3,000 people homeless. Last year, 50 people died in flooding in the country.

'Fela was a prophet that was not respected at home'


Fela was a fascinating music personality

 According to him, the late Afrobeat icon was a prophet whose works encouraged other musicians in Nigeria to pass positive messages through musi






Nollywood actor Segun Arinze says Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, never got the respect he deserved in Nigeria.

According to him, the late Afrobeat icon was a prophet whose works encouraged other musicians in Nigeria to pass positive messages through music.
Segun Arinze has featured in movies such as "Silent Night", "Across the Niger", "Family on Fire" and "Black Arrow". 

In an interview with the NAN on Wednesday, August 2, 2017, Arinze said the issues Fela addressed in his works were still relevant.
He is a great icon and till date, his music still stands relevant. Most of those things he said in all his songs are prevalent till date. He was like a prophet but as the saying goes, a ‘prophet is not respected in his home town’, which is exactly what played out in his life.
We still keep hope that the society will continue to imbibe the messages he left behind for the much-needed change to come.
Fela Anikulapo-Kuti  
Arinze also described Fela as a great artiste who understood how to use music to pass on messages. He said Fela started passing messages before other activists started using music to propagate worthy and good causes.
And of course, he was being recognised by the government, people and the society; Fela was great, we can never forget him in Nigeria, Africa and the world stage. It even got to a level of staging a play in his honour, Fela on Broadway; what else can you ask for?” he asked.

Fela was a Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, composer, pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre, human rights activist, pan-Africanist, polygamist, mystic, legend and political maverick.

2019 may be two years away, but politicians have already started strategising on how they could clinch the seats up for election. This is normal, but what is a bit surprising to many is how celebrities have started showing interest in running for elective office. The Nigerian senate and House of Representatives has even passed the Not Too Young To Run bill giving youths the opportunity to run for political offices. Perhaps this is what has given celebrities the drive to delve into politics. NAIJ.com has curated a list of celebrities who have started making moves to fully enter politics. Check them out below: 1. Yul Edochie These 6 celebs want to become governors Actor and son of Nollywood veteran Pete Edochie, Yul was the first celebrity to declare his intention to run for Governor in the forthcoming elections in Anambra state. Writing on why he wanted to become the next governor, Yul says “we need young, vibrant, decisive Leaders with good hearts, Leaders who understand the urgent need to fix the problems of the masses. Leaders who will put tribalism and favouritism aside and work for the people.” He hasn’t announced the party on whose platform he intends to run for the governor of Anambra state in November 2017. 2. Kcee These 6 celebs want to become governors Even though he has been embroiled in a battle with his former label mate Harrysong, Kcee surprised many when he announced his intention to also contest for governor of Anambra state in November 2017. Kcee says he wants to impact on the lives of the masses, that’s why he is running for office. 3. Terry G These 6 celebs want to become governors Another celebrity whose announcement to run for office surprised many, Terry G says if he doesn’t get elected as the governor of Benue state, there would be problem. He also added that power belongs to the youths. Funny enough, he wants to be deputy governor too! READ ALSO: Another Gucci loving big boy spotted on social media 4. Vic O These 6 celebs want to become governors Rapper Vic O says he wants to rule Cross River state for free. Apart from his promise to donate his salary when he gets into office, Vic O has promised that he is going to save the state. 5. Uche Maduagwu These 6 celebs want to become governors Known more for his outrageous posts on the lives of his colleagues on social media than for his acting roles, Uche Maduagwu has said he is the most popular candidate this means he would win the election easily. 6. Jim Iyke These 6 celebs want to become governors The only celeb who hasn’t declared his intention to run for office in any capacity or released a campaign poster, actor Jim Iyke has been at the fore front of a political moment called the Youth Democratic Party. It’s only a matter of time before he tells us what he is running for. Out of the names mentioned above, who do you think stands a chance of actually getting into office? Let us know. NAIJ TV recently took to the streets to ask Nigerians what they think President Buhari should do immediately he returns to the country. Watch their responses below: Read more: https://entertainment.naij.com/1118561-these-6-celebs-governors.html

BLOGGERS AND CHALLENGES OF BLOGGING

Challenges Of Blogging!

Before I say anything concerning the above topic, I will like to tell
you who a blogger is.

   In a simple term; a blogger is a person who own or manage a blog.
I don’t need to go deep in that.
Actually, blogging is a very creative and nice thing to engage in.
Many people blog for passion’s sake while are blogging for money. Each
and every skill you need to run and manage a blog is called blogging
which include skills like S.E.O, Social Media marketing, writing,
editing, publishing, researching, designing, observing and
maintaining.

You must learn all aforementioned stuffs to be a successful blogger.
Now let’s move down to the aim aim of this post..

Bloggers And Challenges of Blogging.


There is lot of challenges in blogging. As a blogger or intending
blogger you need to struggle. As a matter of fact, nothing good comes
forth without an effort been applied.
Below are common challenges every bloggers faces most especially the newbie s

•       Time
•       Perfect Niche
•       Confidence
•       Capital
•       Quality Content
•       Growing Traffic
•       Making Money

Now let’s begin analyses the one after the other

1.      Time: This so called time is one of the greatest challenge 98% of
blogger do face. In fact, I as a person is also facing this problem,
but I have my way of planning things. At times you feel tired,
stressed, busy or sick, but still, you have to find time out of no
time. You don’t have to wait until you have buckets of spare time
before you blog, it simply won’t come! Try and strategize, try to
plane your working and resting hour.

2.      Perfect Niche: This is the point where some bloggers fail, you
don’t have to a niche just because it’s less competitive, you have to
study yourself, understand yourself, know your ability, know what you
have passion in writing and then go for your passion. If you decide to
start blogging on a niche because its less competitive, things might
not work out fine as you expected, in fact you might end up turning to
a copy and paste blogger and you know the danger behind that, if you
don’t know click here to see dangers ahead copy and paste sites. I
have seen a top blogger that deleted the whole post on his blog and
start afresh with another niche which suppose not to be so.

3.      Confidence: This is basically for the newbies. Try to have
confidence I yourself, be yourself, love what you like doing, move
with top bloggers and try to contribute to forums and group chat. You
see, one of the main factor that kills person is intimidation, don’t
allow anybody to intimidate you, and try to be social.

4.      Capital: while blogging, capital is very essential. Nothing comes
for free. Many bloggers most especially the newbies finds it difficult
to get capital all because of their humble beginning. The solution is
simple; try having one or two savings as it may help in one way or the
other.

5.      Quality content: This is where the soul and beauty of a blog/website
is, but unfortunately many bloggers even the so called top bloggers
fail at this junction most especially entertainment bloggers. I won’t
be able to say much about quality content here because lots of things
are involve while writing a quality content. While talking about
quality content. 88% of bloggers are into copy and paste stuff, even
the so called Tech-Bloggers.
Issokay
Lemme no talk too much here. Click here to see twelve Basic Tools That
Make a Quality Content.

6.      Growing Traffic: This is another challenge in which 91% of Nigeria
blogger usually face.
Traffic.
What shall it profit a blog with a good niche and quality content but
without traffic?
Writing a blog post without any response can give the impression of
speaking to an empty room, often discouraging blogger.
There are numerous of tactics that bloggers can adopt, in other to
influence traffic to their blog.

7.      Making Money: I know this is where many bloggers are hopping for,
because no one wants to hustle day and night without any bank alert.
Put it’s a pity today many are going after the money first. Blogging
is a dedicated process that requires time, resources, and energy.
Bloggers should not immediately jump on monetizing the blog; but
rather spend time establishing it. Once the blog is ready, there are
numbers of ways in which a blogger can attempt to create cash flow.
Affiliate marketing, advertising, and offering premium content are a
few of the examples through which a blogger can make money. However,
it’s very important to keep a balance between monetization and
audience appeal, as excessive ads and promotion can drive readers
away.


Conclusively: If you want to be a successful blogger, you must not
wait for a perfect blogging circumstance, they simple won’t come.
Learn how to use your time wisely.

Buhari Expresses Confidence His Absence Won’t Affect Governance


President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday expressed confidence that his absence would not affect the smooth running of government.
Buhari, who relayed this last night in a tweet on his Twitter handle @MBuhari, said his confidence in effective government apparatus while he's away was absolute.

"As I noted earlier, I have absolute confidence that government will continue to run smoothly while I'm away. God bless the Federal Republic," he said.
Buhari had handed the reins of power to his deputy, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday before departing for London.
His media aide, Mr. Femi Adesina, said the duration of the president's trip, which he described as a follow-up medical consultation with his doctors, would be as determined by the doctors.
Adesina said whereas the president had initially planned to embark on the trip Sunday afternoon, he had to delay his flight as a result of the 82 freed Chibok girls who arrived Abuja earlier in the day.
The presidential spokesman who said the president had transmitted the vacation letter to the National Assembly, in accordance with Section 145 of the Constitution, added that Buhari assured Nigerians that there was no cause for alarm and urged them to remember him in their prayers.
"The president wishes to assure all Nigerians that there is no cause for worry. He is very grateful for the prayers and good wishes of the people, and hopes they would continue to pray for the peace and unity of the nation.
"The length of the president's stay in London will be determined by the doctors. Government will continue to function normally under the able leadership of the vice-president. President Buhari has transmitted letters about the trip to the Senate and the House of Representatives, in compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution," the statement added.
Buhari's tweet came on the heels of the confidence expressed by one of his aides that the president was "fit to seek reelection in 2019 elections".
The Senior Special Assistant, Legislative Matters (House of Representatives), Hon. Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila, made the remark to reporters in Kano on Monday at the Government House.
According to him, "From what I have seen at close range, my boss is quite fit for the 2019 electoral battle."
Sumaila also expressed confidence in Buhari's readiness to floor any challenger within his party and across the political divide, adding that "the president has nothing to fear".


"President Buhari's fitness was played upon in 2015 general election. He survived the campaign rigour, won the election and is on the verge of taking Nigeria to the promised land.
"Buhari is quite alright, he is fit to pass through a familiar terrain, and its human to fall sick. I am highly confident he would get better," Sumaila stressed.
"Those who have legitimate ambitions should step forward, but they should also have at the back of their minds the fatal consequences of such misadventure in 2015," Sumaila said.
He also said that the president's two years in office had been "eventful and fruitful", adding: "His ability to degrade the insurgency was a landmark in the history of this country."
The presidential aide appealed to Nigerians to continue to support the government to enable it to deliver the dividends of democracy to their doorsteps.

Nigerian Leaders Lack Focus and Commitment, Says Obasanjo

Olusegun Obasanjo

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has said Nigerian leaders lack focus, commitment, continuity and sometimes, proper knowledge about economic and development issues.
He declared that one of major problems facing the country which urgently needs to be corrected is poor leadership.
“Nigerian leaders lack focus, commitment, continuity and sometimes, proper knowledge about economic and development issues, hence we have not been able to achieve meaningful result,” Obasanjo said.
He lamented that “another problem is that we take one step forward and another step backward.”
Obasanjo said: “Nigerian leaders must be tough and ready to bite the bullet, because Nigeria cannot have it easy and until we get the right leadership, the problem will continue.”

The former president spoke yesterday in Kaduna at a one-day seminar on ‘Promoting Public Private Partnership as panacea for accelerated growth and development,’ organised by the Kaduna Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture ( KADCCIMA) to flag off the 38th Kaduna International Trade Fair.
Expressing displeasure over inconsistency in policies, Obasanjo said as a military Head of State, his administration banned the importation of toothpick in 1977, “because it was the most stupid thing to import when we can produce it here.”
He regretted however, that “about 40 years after, one of the presidents that came after me, I won’t mention his name, unbanned toothpick. Then, I put on my Babanriga and went to Abuja to express my shock about the policy, but to my greatest surprise, the president told me he signed the document unbanning toothpick without reading it.
“Another thing is that, he came in saying he will generate additional 30,000 megawatts to the 3,500megawatts we left behind, and I told him, don’t trouble yourself, if you can add 3,000 megawatts to the one we left behind, you will receive the best of awards. But, to my greatest shock, he couldn’t add one megawatt before leaving office.”
Speaking further on the economic challenges facing the country, Obasanjo said lack of synergy in public and private sectors was responsible for the setbacks in the nation’s economy and growth.
He noted that the public sector perceives the private sector as a profit making Industry that reaps where it does not sow, stressing that in actual fact, they are two legs that when brought together can accelerate development in all sectors of the economy.
He stressed that for the nation to witness accelerated growth and development, the two sectors must work together.
“When we were in office, we privatised NNPC and sold to Dangote and partners, but the government that succeeded me revoked it and that is why till today, NNPC cannot work optimally.
“But today the same Dangote that was denied ownership of NNPC is building a refinery that can produce in excess of what NNPC can produce and what Nigeria can consume. So, it means he will even export,” Obasanjo said.
Also in a lecture he presented at the occasion, former Minister of Finance, Dr. Shamdudeen Usman, maintained that lack of continuity in governance and poor will by political leaders to complete projects started by their predecessor was responsible for the nation’s underdevelopment.
He noted: “Delay in budgetary approval process and padding of the budget attributes to the slow acceleration of growth and development experienced in the nation.”

Beggars In Nigeria Will Start Paying Tax


The Nigerian government has stated that no one would be left out in the campaign to enlarge the tax revenue.

She said some beggars were earning millions and that “proceeds from begging are taxable. You are supposed to pay taxes even if your means of income is begging”.

Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun said this in Lagos at a lecture at PWC’s Business School, with the theme: ‘Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS) Interactive Session for Executives and Business Owners.’

She said to ascertain the income status of the companies/individuals and their lifestyle, investigators would rely on information derived from Bank Verification Number (BVN), records of property ownership, records of foreign exchange allocation, and records of company ownership from the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), among others.

Adeosun said: “We are using some firms to trace assets internationally.The investigators’ findings will enable us to compare the income and how much tax the company/person is really paying, and that gives us lots of information.

“But we encourage people to come up and pay their taxes willingly. You can register a high-end car. It tells me something about your income.

“So, we look at your tax returns. If you registered Mercedes E-Class and you are paying N100,000 tax, then something is wrong. Those are red flags. We now have the capacity to assess people accurately.

“We are trying to build an economy where we have oil and other things. It is going to be oil plus and wider economy”.

10 Secret to Make Your Relationship Last

    Love that lasts is the result of partners embedding themselves in each other’s brains in a positive way. Memory circuits and pleasure get all wound up together so that the other person becomes integral to the very structure of your brain, and you become part of the structure of his.
Here are some steps toward making your love last:



1. Take your partner's breath away. Do something amazingly thoughtful and out of the ordinary and try to incorporate an element of surprise to it: a loving note tucked into a pocket. A special dinner on an otherwise ordinary night. A playlist made up with his favorite songs. These thoughtful acts will embed you in his memory.

2. Do something special on a regular basis. Call him every day just to touch base for a few minutes. Make his favorite meal once a week. Once he begins to expect these things, you will always be close to his awareness.

3. Engage in lots of eye gazing. New couples seem to do this naturally, but don’t drop this strong bonding behavior just because the relationship has progressed. This is one way to keep the romance alive and is especially powerful when making love.

4. Learn what pleases your partner sexually. Make it clear that his pleasure is your pleasure, and you want to discover everything about what turns him on. He’ll be happy to have you experiment with him.

5. Teach your partner what you like. Likewise, making you happy will make him feel good. And research shows that the sexual pleasure of one partner increases the pleasure of the other partner.

6. Boost lasting love with sexual novelty. When things get humdrum and routine, there is not going to be as much of a hormonal/neurotransmitter reaction, and arousal is lessened. While you don't have to break out the whips and chains, a little novelty can increase anticipation, which means that more hormones are secreted. The result? Hotter, more thrilling sex for both of you.

7. Do something edgy. If you get your partner’s heart rate up, he may associate the feeling of excitement with you and he may develop more powerful feelings for you. Going on a roller-coaster ride, taking a balloon trip, shooting the rapids—anything with a touch of danger to it—can make him fall more deeply in love with you.

8. Do something great for someone your partner loves. If you show kindness and love for someone he loves, you will earn major points. When you enter a relationship, you also enter a relationship with all his family and friends. Show him that the people who are important to him are important to you.

9. Summarize and immortalize loving moments. Don’t be afraid to give voice to your love. Tell him how you feel. Write a loving note or poem. Lovers have been doing this from the beginning of time because it works.

10. Boost the chemicals of love. There are many brain chemicals that go into the feeling of love and attachment. Oxytocin is known as the bonding, trust, and cuddle hormone. Oxytocin is enhanced by watching romantic movies together, holding hands, cuddling, and long, loving eye contact. Women usually have more oxytocin than men, but according to one study, a man’s level of oxytocin goes up 500 percent after making love. Being too busy to make love pushes couples apart.

How to Start an Online Business and Make Huge Amount Within a Short Period

Online businesses rock.
Why?
I'll tell you why . . . .

You can run your online business from anywhere, and you actually don't need a lot of money to start. There aren't too many businesses that can boast those advantages!
But still, you're going to need quite a bit of time and a little bit of money to start your online business.
It certainly takes more than a few minutes every day to get something awesome up and running. And, it takes a little extra cash to really get things moving.
how to start an online business with no money
So today, I'd like to show you exactly how you can find the time and money to get your online business off the ground. Hang in there, we have a lot to cover.

Motivate Yourself!

Don't think that you can make a lot of money starting an online business? Think again.
Take for example of Steve's Wife. She started an online store called Bumblebee Linens which replaced her salary of $100k within one year. Amazing. Check out an interview with Steve to learn more about how it was done.
Or take Ramit's Zero to Launch online course. It had over 30,000 paying students. That's big money, folks. In fact, it's a great course you can take to learn how to start making some extra money on the side.
You might be thinking, “Okay Jeff, this is all fantastic. But can I really do this stuff?”
Yes, you can, but you're going to have to find your passion first.
 I know it will inspire you to take what you already enjoy doing and turn it into a business!

Find Time

Let's tackle this big one first: finding time.
Here's the deal . . . it takes quite a bit of effort to find time during your day. Parkinson's law states that work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. You know what that means? It means that the stuff you're already doing is probably taking up your entire day. That means that currently, you really don't have any time to start an online business.
So, that means you're doomed. Just joking.
What it really means is that you have to make time. What I mean by “make time” is that you have to either do what you're already doing much faster than you're already doing it, or you have to reduce the number of tasks you're doing each day. I know, bad news, right?
Trust me, there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Because I decided to focus on the right tasks instead of the ones that didn't really produce profit for me.

 Making time during my day for my blogging business paid off – big time.
I'm convinced that you can have similar results if you make time during the day for the right tasks. But how do you find this time during the day? Yes, you already know that you either have to say “No” to stuff, or you have to speed up what you're doing, but what does that really look like from a practical standpoint?
Let's explore some ways to find time.

1. Dedicate particular days of the week to certain kinds of work.

I absolutely love this idea. At my firm, I spend a couple of days at the office doing the tasks that require my attention – I don't spend my entire week there. Why? Because I realized early on that scheduling and focus are key components of success.

Perhaps right now you're working a full-time job and when you get home you're absolutely drained. But maybe you really don't have to work full-time – maybe you can get away with 30 hours per week instead of 40 hours per week. Imagine what you could build with that extra 10 hours per week!

Did someone say a thriving online business? Yes, I believe they did.
By having certain days of the week dedicated to building your online business, you'll be able to focus and take advantage of the times of day that you have the most energy.
Many people, for example, find that they have the most energy to get work done in the earlier parts of the day – the morning and the early afternoon. Working in the evening can be quite the chore when you're drained from everything else you did that day. That's why it's a good idea to start your morning off right and work as early as possible – in my opinion.
That leads me to my next tip . . . .

2. Wake up super early.

Don't get me wrong. I wasn't always an early bird.
But after I read The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod, my life changed for the better.
You see, I used to work on my online business late at night. That's when I did most of my blogging. But when I started having kids, I noticed that I would get off track and find myself scrolling through Facebook instead of focusing on my work. No good.
Hal's book inspired me to try something different, so I started waking up super early. I now typically wake up at 5am. Sometimes, I wake up even earlier.
Hal's book isn't just about waking up early, it's about finding a routine. You could exercise, read some fiction, eat a healthy breakfast – you name it. The idea is that when you start the day strong, your work day becomes the best it can be.

3. Prioritize your daily tasks.

I'd be willing to bet that you have quite a few things you do every day. Perhaps you often get to the end of your day and realize that you didn't get everything done that you wanted to get done. You're certainly not alone – a lot of people are in that boat.
More from GFC, Below
That's why I recommend that you prioritize your daily tasks. But you don't necessarily have to prioritize all of them, just focus on your five most important tasks in the day. This in itself is prioritizing these five tasks over the other things you have to do during the day, and let me tell you, it works!
I call this the HIGH FIVE™. Which tasks should you choose for your HIGH FIVE™? Simple:
  • Tasks that move the needle on your long-term goals like starting an online business
  • Tasks that you must get done today or they won't survive
Have a good mix of the two types of tasks in there, and you'll do just fine.

Find Money

Okay, so you found some time and know how to focus in on the right tasks at the right time. Now what?
It's time to find some money baby!
Like I said earlier, it usually doesn't take much money to start an online business compared to a brick and mortar business. However, if you're selling tangible goods online you're still going to need quite a bit of money to start compared to selling ebooks or other information-based products.
So how do you find this money? There are so many ways. Let's explore.

1. Use a little savings if your business doesn't require a lot of overhead.

If you're planning on starting a business with information-based products like ebooks or online courses, I'd say you should go ahead and just use a little bit of your savings to get your online business off the ground.
If you've never explored the costs associated with starting an online business, prepare to be amazed. It costs so little, most Americans could afford it no problem.
You can get started for as little as $3.95 per month. That's right, just $3.95 per month!
That will get you hosting, and everything else is pretty much optional. However, some of the optional expenses might be worth the money, so I'll show you how to make some money for those expenses as well.

2. Start freelancing.

If you're struggling to pay your bills but you want to start a substantial online business, consider trying to make some money on the side.
A great way to do this is through freelancing – not being an employee. There's a difference!
Freelancing has to do with working for multiple companies or people at the same time. It's also largely identified by being able to set your own hours and your own rates. This gives you greater flexibility to make some extra money on the side without sacrificing your employment at your regular job.
Freelancing is also great for those who seek services, too. Because freelancers aren't employees, business owners don't have to pay Social Security on behalf of the freelancer and they also don't have to pay for their healthcare. When business owners hire freelancers, there's much less regulation and paperwork to keep track of and file.
As you can see, freelancing is a great option for business owners and laborers alike. So what can you do as a freelancer? There are a number of online freelance jobs:
  • Writing
  • Editing
  • Website design
  • Sales
  • Accounting
  • Data entry
  • Tutoring
  • Coaching
You can also get a job that requires more physical labor, if that's your thing. Here are some manual labor jobs that require some sweat:
  • Mechanical work
  • Dog walking
  • Handyman work
  • Furniture moving
You get the idea. Many of these jobs you can do on the side as you have time. Consider it! One of these ideas might become your online business – or it might be a means to getting your online business funded!

3. Cut your expenses.

If you're living paycheck to paycheck, you should consider cutting your expenses. There are a number of areas where you can aim to cut your expenses, and I'd like to focus on those now.
First, take a look at your recurring expenses. This might include cable TV subscriptions, cellular service, magazine subscriptions – anything that you get charged for every month. Many of these expenses can be cut down or completely eliminated. Within a few months, by cutting these expenses, you'll have enough money to pay for the hosting of your online business and also to pay some freelancers if you want some web design work done, for example.
But don't just look at the small recurring expenses, look at the big ones too.  How much are you paying for rent? Is it too much? Do you have too much space that really isn't getting utilized? Perhaps you should downsize. It's not a bad idea! Also, take a look at your car payments.

In addition to taking a hard look at your recurring expenses, take a look at your regular, non-recurring expenses. What do I mean by “regular” expenses? These are those purchases that you might make every day or every other day but add up to a lot of money over the month.
For example, take a look at your eating out expenses. Are you going out to eat every other day? Let's say you spend just $25 when you go out to eat with your family – I'm being conservative here. Let's also say that you're going out to get every other day. That comes to about $375 per month or $4,500 per year. Ouch. Cut back! Try going out to eat perhaps once per week on the weekends – that's much more reasonable.

4. Get paid for stuff you already do.

Yes, you can get paid for stuff you're already doing. I'm going to share an awesome tip that will bring in some cash. Are you ready? One word . . . .
InboxDollars. InboxDollars allows you to earn free cash by searching using their search engine. Yep, it's as easy as that. When you sign up, you'll also get a free $5 bonus. It'll probably take you some time to earn a decent amount of money, but for something that only takes a few minutes to sign up for, it's a great deal.
You can also make some money by doing surveys, answering polls, and playing games with Swagbucks.
Give these two websites a shot and you'll be making enough to probably cover your hosting and have a little extra left over for any other areas of your online business you want to fund.

It's Time to Start Your Online Business!

Alright, I showed you how to find the time and money to start your online business. Now it's time to actually get started! And don't worry, I have you covered.
Blogging is a great way to make money online without having to cough up a lot of money. I've seen a great deal of success in blogging, and now I'd like to teach you how to do it – free of charge.

Things You Must Know Before You Date a Funny Guy





1. We're guaranteed to make your day better, like a human version of pizza. Had a crappy day at work? Get in a fight with your best friend? You know that if you call us up to hang out, we'll get you laughing.

2. Funny guys are like garlic: bland stuff suddenly gets way better. We'll make even boring stuff awesome. Do you have to go help your brother move out of his dorm? Bring us along. Awkward family wedding? Check and see if you get a plus-one. 
Advertisement - Continue Reading Below

3. We hate being called "funny guys." On a personal note, I hate writing this and even self-identifying as being funny. If people introduce us as funny or ask us to tell a joke on the spot, we'll retreat into our (probably) metaphorical shells.

4. Yes, we will make jokes during serious talks. Bear with us and don't get mad. Sometimes we can't resist making a so-bad-it's-really-bad-and-almost-good pun or throwing out an actually good one-liner. These moments might come during a serious talk about where our relationship is headed. Brace yourself.

5. But that doesn't mean we can't be serious. Half the time we're making jokes, we're still taking things seriously. But we're not about to start screaming, "HEY, GANG! WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH DEATH, HUH? WHERE DO WE GO WHEN WE DIE? WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?" at your great aunt's funeral like some terrible stand-up. We are not insane. We still understand societal norms.

6. Just because we can crack some jokes doesn't mean we secretly want to break into comedy. Most of us are content with just making people laugh. Don't keep pushing us to take an improv class unless we bring it up. And if we do, get ready for long, weird hours and lots of questions about whether or not a particular joke is funny as we quadruple-guess ourselves. 

7. Get ready for us to be really elitist about some of your favorite TV shows. Fuck The Big Bang Theory. Let's move on.

8. THERE'S PAIN BEHIND THESE EYES. All right, let's dial it down a bit, but just because we're making jokes doesn't mean we're constantly happy-go-lucky. If anything, it's a defense mechanism. Even if we're laughing, just check in with us sometimes.

9. We can't always be "on" with you. While our friends typically get our whole funny shtick 24/7, you're not always going to get that with us. Sometimes we need to be boring and unfunny.

10. We are your secret weapon at office dinner parties. We'll charm the hell out of anyone you need us to. Your boss? You coworkers? That weird guy you can't quite figure out? We're all best friends now. We are like locksmiths but with people.

14 Little Moments That Make You Feel Single

You've accepted the fact that you are single. Nay, you've embraced it! You love living the single life and all the bonuses that come with it (You don't have to share the bed! You can keep your apartment at whatever temperature you want!). However, certain things in life exist solely to remind you of your relationship status. And each one of these instances has left you saying to yourself, "I am single."

1. Getting invited to a wedding and being graciously given a plus-one. But instead, you're like, "Can I bring a bottle of sauvignon blanc as my plus-one?" You don't mind going to weddings alone, really, you don't. But having to send the RSVP card back to the bride with a big fat X over the box for "will be enjoying my tenderloin alone and will also probably die alone while we're at it" gets more painful and real each time.

2. Bouquet tosses. While we're on the topic of weddings, why must every wedding do the bouquet toss to the "Single Ladies" song? You used to love that song but now as soon as it comes on, the dance floor parts like the Red Sea and everybody turns and stares at you, the lone single lady who will probably still not catch the bouquet.

3. When your best friend gets a boyfriend. NNNOOOOOOOOooOOoOOooo! R.I.P., Friday night wing woman, Saturday afternoon brunch buddy, and happy hour homie. T'was real while it lasted.
4. Your kitchen pantry. It's basically a leaning tower of Easy Mac boxes and approximately nine bottles of wine you've stocked up on. And your fridge is full of leftover takeout food that you hold on to so your kitchen appliances don't look completely empty and barren, like your love life.

5. Recipes that yield two servings. You decide to actually cook for once, but every recipe makes enough food for you and the boyfriend you don't have. Why, god, why? Is it that hard to make recipes with measurements for single people so you don't have to be further single-shamed by your penne pasta? The only upside to this is having dinner ready for the rest of the week. Let's be real, you didn't have plans anyway.
6. When even what's-her-name on Facebook gets engaged before you. A new day, a new Facebook notification that everyone except you is happily engaged. Or already married. Or on kid no. 5.
7. Pretty much every holiday. Valentine's Day sucks for obvious reasons, and Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah are super fun when you have no one to bring home with you, so your parents make you sleep in the creepy room with the kid-size twin bed to make space for aaall the other happy couples. You're happy for everyone! Really! That bed is just the worst.
8. Having to list an emergency contact on forms. Let's see, there's that guy you met on Bumble who you're kind of texting, or your best friend who is now married and pregnant. Or maybe you should jot down your mom's name for the 50th time. All you really want is to get your eyebrows waxed in peace, dammit.
9. Your mom. She loves to pry and loves reminding you how bad she wants grandkids even more. She says things like, "I'm not gonna live forever, you know," and, "When I was your age, I was married with two kids!" If ever you're feeling good about where you are in the single life, don't go visit your parents.
10. Family vacations. Your siblings all bring their significant others, but you are flying solo (literally) in a middle seat between a baby who won't stop crying and an old man who won't stop snoring. Your parents always encourage you to bring a friend but you respectfully decline because you don't need their pity.

11. When you find a cockroach or something in your apartment. The only person who can deal with it is you. Same goes for clogged drains and broken toilets. You're on your own.
12. Fall. With all the hayrides, apple picking, and new TV show line-ups, fall (aka cuddle season) is a great time for couples. But that doesn't mean you'll be sitting around and sulking. You'll be spending that time prepping your badass Harley Quinn Halloween costume so you can put all the couples' costumes to shame.

13. Clothes that are hard to put on by yourself. Dresses with hard-to-reach back zippers. Those stupid hook and eye clasps. Super-tight body-con dresses. Theses things are too hard to put on/take off by yourself, so you give up and wear something else instead.
14. Bad dates. You finally decide to go out with someone, only to realize you'd be much happier cuddled up alone on your couch with your mermaid blanket watching The Bachelor with a glass of rosé and a giant tub of hummus than listen to him talk about himself any longer. Being single is better if that's the alternative.
