Some Tools and Resources I’ve Been Using to Work From Home

Recently, I made a poll about whether I should write about my everyday life or tools and resources I’ve been using to work from home… The latter got 69% vote, and I swear the number wasn’t like that on purpose. LOL.

Because of this, I’ve compiled a list of tools and platforms that are helpful for me since the first day of my work-from-home journey. Mind you, some of the platforms I’ve been using might also be the regular thing in your everyday life. But then again, maybe you didn’t know how to leverage it into a few bucks for some extra cash.

So I guess this post is here. Just a heads up though, I’m not so good at making a tutorial like a career coach or whatever. But I suppose I’m not so bad at explaining things for dummies. If you’re here, then I hope you’re a dummy that is looking forward to your betterment in some way. And moreover, hope this would help you too… Here we go!

Guest Post, Collab Post, and Link Building: What They Are and Why They Matter When You Start Blogging

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote a post on blogging. It’s not exactly my favorite topic to write about, but I think the benefits of me writing about it is that I could somewhat explain it in words that a 5-year-old would understand.

You know, the benefits of having English as the third language. You can write in it, but you know that there are still some flaws in-between that a bilingual or a trilingual like you could relate. And that’s the kind of information that I wish I could get the first time I started blogging in English. 😛

Anyway, after several attempts to write posts on the blogosphere topic, now it’s time for me to write about something essential when you just start blogging. When you want to take blogging seriously, apparently just write is not enough. You also need networking to get more exposure to what you do.

You might be not a fan of networking ideas. I mean, I know I am not. But when it comes to blogging, networking is somewhat easier than I thought it was. Some networking activities that I’m glad I’ve learned so far are these three things that I’m going to write today: guest post, collab post, and link building.

So, what are they and why do they even matter?

Writers Academy on Travelista Club: It Is NOT a Scam!

The first time I heard about Travelista Club, I suppose it was a long, long time ago when I didn’t even have this blog yet. However, back then I was hesitant to sign up for GoDaddy since I wasn’t financially ready to purchase my own domain or hosting.

It was probably some time last year when I saw the Facebook ad of this club again. At the time, I decided to sign up since I already have this blog and I think it’s gonna be a good opportunity for me to get more exposures in terms of my writing skill.

I signed up through Writers Academy, and they claim to pay $40 AUD for a 1000-word article. So what is this Travelista Club, and what does it have anything to do with Writers Academy?

Well, allow me to explain it to you in this post as I realized that it’s been a while since the last time I wrote a piece on blogging. 😉

4 Types of Blog That I Find Annoying While Blogwalking

So, earlier this morning I checked my WordPress when I found out that Alyne herself left a comment on my Social Media Influencer post. I was so surprised. Like, wow dude… Even an influencer with such a big number of followers like Alyne spared some time to do blogwalking. In that case, she probably googled herself and found my post there.

I mean, it’s such a good coincidence as I was already planning to write some rants about blogwalking tonight. For those of you who have been in the blogsphere for quite some time, I think you’re already familiar with the term.

For those who don’t, according to Answer.com, blogwalking is mutual blog promoting between bloggers through their individual blogs. Basically, it’s the kind of activity when you check out other people’s blogs to see what they have for various reasons.

Why I Never Take Any Blogging Course and Why I Don’t Want My Blog to Hit Success Overnight

A few days ago, one of the members on the blogging communities that I’m in shared the post on Medium that has now been deleted. In case you didn’t know some recent news in blogging communities, it was about this influencer who was accused of scamming through her Instagram course.

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote something about blogging here, so I guess I’ll do it now that it’s a hot trending topic. At least through blogging communities.

No, I’m not going to tell you that all blogging courses are scams. Clearly, because I’ve never taken any course myself.

Instead, I’m going to share with you why I’ve never joined any of the courses out there despite the fact that blogging is one of my main activities right now. Also, why I take it slow when it comes to blogging on my platform.
