One blogging mistake You Must Avoid

Dear blogger, or blogging hopeful, are you sure that you have not made this mistake already? The mistake of  multi tasking blogging. The mistake of not focusing on one project at a time. I got something from Daily blog tips and after reading, decided that it is worth sharing with fellow bloggers. Especially those of us that are still new and young in the blogging business.

 For those who have the intention of blogging but have not yet started, you are fortunate to have clicked on this post because there is a deadly mistake that paralyzes bloggers

How to Overcome a Break Up ( contd)

With all the pain and hurt in you heart, consciously plaster a smile on your face. As much as you can, wear a smile. He does not see the frown anymore, so, let others who look at you, see the beautiful smiling face. Do not carry a blank face like a mourner. Try not to let his exit affect the way you showcase yourself to other people OK? Remember the following:
You must start by putting in extra energy, like forcing yourself to look good. Wear make up, dress smartly and beautifully.Include dance and exercise in your daily or weekly routine and experience the difference after each round.Look in the mirror frequently,

How to get over a Failed Relationship

According to Dalai Lama, "When we fall in love with someone, we are essentially experiencing the love that was within us all along.The person is merely acting like a mirror, reflecting our soul back to us." If there is  a falling in love, then we must accept that there should also be a falling apart. One thing is sure in this life, and that is , that every relationship must come to an end.If circumstances of life do not end a relationship, then death will definitely do that. Always have it in mind that no relationship will last for ever. The truth is, it is either now or later.
When there is a break up, we should not think that our happiness is taken away because, honestly,

How can I discover my true self?

While growing up in my village, I started even as a young girl, to gather other kids my age, and begin to teach them by mimicking my favorite teacher then, Mr Williams, may his soul rest in peace. I will hold a cane in my left hand with a piece of  chalk on the other. Stand in front of my friends and try to teach whatever I learnt in school that day. Surprisingly,
these kids parents return to thank me for a class that was supposed to be like children playing. The kids go back home, recite whatever I taught them and their parents are impressed. I grow older, and as a teenager, I begin to teach the children's Sunday school class in my local church.
Then I grow much older, I graduate into teaching the teenage Sunday school class, and honestly I still remember the faces of those who came to tell me how my teaching affected their lives.
Later on, I write JAMB examination hoping to read a course that will really pay much money when I eventually get a job. However, after failing the exami…

Blogging tips for beginners, wives and very busy bloggers

Blogging is not just what you do for leisure, just like I said in an earlier post.
Successful blogging has rules that should be followed, it has what I call due process that has to be observed. IF you are just blogging for fun, you are just doing it because other people are doing it, then this post may not be relevant to you.
However, if your purpose is to do something online, share your thoughts and experiences and benefit from it, then you are at the right place.

You spend so much money fueling your generating set to have electricity, that is if you live in Nigeria and other third world countries. You pay heavily to subscribe for internet connection too. So, doing something that will bring some profits is not a bad idea at all. Whatever your reason for blogging may be, try as much as possible to also make money online. Blogging for fun does not stop us from putting some adverts on our sites and making a little if not much money out of it.

Whatever is worth doing, is worth doing well. If…
