Affiliate Programs

With affiliate programs, you can use your web presence to recruit others to sell your products, or you can sell products for other companies from your website. This approach can be helpful if you do not have a lot of products to offer of your own, or if there are complementary products out there that can help you get started.

As an example, if you write a blog and include posts about great books that you have read, you could set up affiliate links to a bookseller, where you get a portion of sales (a commission) that come from people who click on the ad on your blog.

If you have plenty of products available and you want people to sell them for you, then you can set yourself up where you act like the book wholesaler in the example above, and people who sell for you receive a portion of every sale that originates from their web links, while you get to keep the profits from the overall sale.

10 Ways To Challenge Yourself Everyday

1. Do a crossword puzzle
Try one of those hard crosswords you get in the back of magazines, it'll actually stretch your vocab too! Bonus!

2. Listen to a podcast in a different language
Might be a difficult one to get your head around, especially if you don't understand what they're actually saying, but it can be fun to learn phrases in another language

3. Watch a YouTube video in a different language
Same as point 2, helps you learn another language and phrases in another language.

4. Talk to a stranger
I mean, this isn't always a good thing, but you could end up learning something interesting about life, something you didn't know before, take your chances.

5. Take a picture everyday
6. Learn to draw
I am yet to attempt to teach myself how to draw, i have no patience, but I know people who are self-taught artists and some of their art-work is beautiful

7. Quit a bad habit
Can be hard to do, but certainly achievable, if your bad habit is eating too much chocolate or sweet stuff, get rid of everything that's chocolate or sweet in your house, will help you achieve it.

8. Study something new
Take an online course in a new skill or topic of interest, you will expand your mind and learn new things you didn't know before.

9. Meditate
Using one of those apps it can be easy to take out 10 minutes of your day and sit and enjoy the peace and the instructions on the app, unwind and detatch from the negativity.

10. Play a board game with friends.
This can be fun, especially if you do it when you're drunk (not promoting underage drinking here) but it makes it a little more fun when you're a little drunk and disoriented

I feel sad. Numb. Like the whole world is being swallowed around me. I’m drowning. In my own thoughts. Suffocating. I can’t get out. Nothing can help me. No one is there. Drowning. Deeper, deeper, and deeper. Until I’m dead. I’m dead. I’m dead in side. I feel pain all over my body. I know though. I know that one day I won’t feel that anymore. Just for now, please for now, let me feel dead, numb and sad, I will heal, but it will be on my own terms and in my own time.

Business Promotion On Social Media

Choosing the right platforms….
You can promote your business and products on lots of different social media platforms. The good thing about sharing on social media is that different social media platforms serve different purposes. For example, Instagram, you can promote your products and tag them in your photos on the feed or your story, as long as you’ve got a Facebook business page. You could do a similar thing with snapchat but instead of tagging a product, you add a link directly to the website where you can find it. With twitter, you can share the links, the website or direct products, people can share your links, by retweeting it, causing it to have more audience and more people reach it.

Don’t over promote though….
Saying all of the above about social media promotion, it is important not to overshare because that can be annoying for your audience, if you want, you can even create a calendar of what you’re going to promote and when, then you know what you’re doing when, stops you from promoting the same thing more than once in a short amount of time.

Use photos and create graphics…
One of the ways you can make your promotion interesting is creating graphics and photos to post onto your Instagram or Instagram story, if you’re going to do that, it is a good idea to stay consistent and keep the same colour schemes and fonts, your audience will want you to stay consistent or else it shows you’re a bit lazy because you’re doing whatever whenever.

20/05/2019 - i miss you

It’s still so hard to get my head around the fact that you’re not here anymore😒I miss you. I miss your stupid jokes and the ways you made me laugh. I miss the stories that you used to tell me. I miss your hugs. It’s so hard knowing I’ll grow up and have children and you’ll never see them. I’ll get married and you’ll never see me in my wedding dress. Now that I’m going through losing a parent, nothing seems near as bad. Breakups, can do that no sweat. I wish you were still here because I miss you so much and just want you to be here again. I have never experienced such pain and heartache in my life, I still haven’t got my head round it yet, I still haven’t cried as much as I should have. I still don’t think about you as much as I should. That time will come. I am strong and I will be strong for you and for everyone around me. I’ve started to write on my blogs again just like you told me not to let anyone stop me from chasing my dreams. I love you so much forever and always. Rest easy up there. πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—


Modern dating...and dating apps...

Speaking as someone who has hardly any proper experience about dating and relationships, I don’t know if I will have any idea what I’m talking about but I can always do that thing of trying.
Relationships can be hard to deal with, you can argue a lot or you can go the whole relationship without arguing at all. Finding someone you want to share your life with can be difficult, but what better way to do it through a dating app, I mean what’s better than random men adding you on Snapchat wishing to get what they want from you. I was always a bit spetitical when it comes to dating and relationships through dating apps like Badoo or Tinder, I have gone through so many times where I’m like, oh yeah he’s the one, or he’s the one, just wishing for it to last, but they never do last.

There is also that thing of what do you talk about? What is there to talk about? Do we talk about sex, or is that too forward, do we talk about life and what we do? Or is that too personal. I always get stuck on what to say, so I just awkwardly wait for the conversations to start. As for talking on another platform, because let’s face it not many people like others seeing tinder flash up on their phone given their reputation, do you go for facebook messenger or snapchat. I don’t get why people only want to talk on snapchat, my experience is that means they aren’t really interested in you, just what you have to show.

I just don’t get the point in talking to someone for a long time, getting to know them and then leaving them for no reason and so randomly and out of the blue, what goes through their minds when they do that, I do not know.

But then there’s the complication if they live too far away, and you think awh maybe this guy could be great, he’s funny, smart, and we get along well, but would it be worth all those train journeys down to see them and vice versa, will it be all worth it in the end. I would never want to waste anyone’s time or give them the wrong intentions, I would never want to lead someone or make them think something that it’s not. But I think you should never chuck away something that could be great.

What are the chances on apps like Tinder that you’re going to meet someone who’s nice and clever and charming again? You should always do what you think is right and think how you feel, make your intentions clear because then they know whether to or not to carry on talking to you or if it would just be a waste of time.

It’s great when you find someone with those qualities and I just feel like it’s becoming increasingly difficult because people never make their intentions clear and what exactly they want, only maybe when you get too into talking to them and then that becomes complicated. Talking about sex with someone should never be something you should be scared of because it’s just sex, so what if you go too into detail, that’s all that it should be, a plain conversation, a great conversation though at that.

A guy I found recently totally gets me and what I’m about, we have great conversations, he’s not all about sex which is what I like about this guy. He’s charming and sophisticated, all around great, he’s possibly the best person I found via Tinder, and even though I’ve tried other apps I’ve always gone towards Tinder the most. He’s mature and knows what it’s all about, he’s cute but he has that side to him which makes him not intimated.

When is the right time to meet up with someone from your dating apps? Personally, I don’t think it should be straight away, at most a couple of weeks, if you’re still talking to one another still by then, you never know with people on tinder. You should arrange to meet in a public place, because then you know his intentions with you aren’t just sex. Go for a coffee have a chat, if you wanted to go back to their house to have wild sex then go ahead but all I am saying is be careful and make sure you make your intentions clear!

Relationships that are from talking on dating apps can be great, but you should always be careful about what you make clear about your intentions, always make them clear and precise, I mean do what you want with whoever you want, but there’s always that confusion of emotional attachment so you’re always going to have to be careful about what you say and how you say it.
I’m far from an expert when it comes to love and relationships, trust me with that, but this is just all what I think.
