Some Social Media Influencers that I Don’t Bother to Follow (and Some Others that I Do)

What’s the first thing that comes in mind whenever you hear the term ‘social media influencer’?

You’re probably familiar with the case of Elle Darby vs The White Moose Cafe earlier this year. It’s not really surprising to meet some people who also look down to social media influencer as they often act rather like a freeloader.

5 Kinds of Clickbait that Smart People Shall Not Fall Into

In a way, I spend most of my time sitting in front of the computer and check what I can do with it to be more attractive to read. Be it regarding the content, or the layout. But then again, I barely could live solely from my blog.
