Thankful for | list

Appreciate and be thankful for all the things you have. This blog post includes a list of the things I am thankful for.

Do you ever show an act of appreciation? What are some of the things you are thankful for. Have you ever been thankful for the air you breathe or the life you are living? Since 2018 is nearly ending, I had to do this post because I am thankful for so many things (probably too many to name). And, I know that the things I have, many people would do an awful lot for them. Starting with the basic necessities, some people across the world don't even have that. So, I am humbled to even be writing this post. If you take anything away from this post, then please start to show more gratitude for the things you have. We get so caught up with trying to live up to certain expectations, buying the latest technology, or following a certain trend that we become blinded by our own ignorance. So, please, just have a little reflection on this topic.

Three year blogging anniversary tag, including a question and answer post

This August marks the third anniversary for my blog. My first blog post was published on 20th August 2015, but I spent all of July and August researching about blogging and all other things related.

I have soo many ideas that I still want to put in action, but they require a lot of time and commitment. I have finally been able to get a blogging schedule which works for me.

Pleasing others, following the crowd and your in-group

Pleasing others, following the crowd and your in-group
Thanks to Oscar Keys for the beautiful visual representation.
The society we live in has become about keeping up with the latest trends (phones, clothes, books etc.), but we need to look at reality. Do you actually need the things others are getting? Will you ever use it for the purpose it was made for? Instead of following trends, follow your heart. Do you actually need it? Or are you just buying it because of the 'hype'.

Now I bet most girls do this without having a bad intention, but I want you to realise that if you do this, then it's WRONG

How to schedule blog posts for the year ahead

Join Ramshaa Rose and learn the ultimate way on how to schedule your blog posts for the year ahead.
You can see on the left side how many posts I successfully 'scheduled' and how many were published. On the 9th of September 2017, I managed to successfully schedule 98% of my posts for the year ahead. I will still write when I have time but this process has helped me so much!

After blogging for a couple of years, I have come to realise the importance of scheduling blog posts and social media. I was able to schedule blog posts for a whole year ahead in approximately two months! Now, I still do write blog posts when I get the time. I also, publish some posts as soon as I write them.

But, scheduling allows me to be consistent with my blog. I have two different fixed series currently running on my blog. I was able to write them ahead of time because I planned out the content. I have two series that I just upload whenever I feel like it. I’m able to publish at least ‘one’ post per week! So, even if I can't blog, I peacefully know that I have scheduled something up for that time. It isn’t easy to schedule blog posts and it takes time but it’s the best thing I have done for my blog and my audience!
