Everyone is going to be working from home for at least another few months. The pandemic is not over, despite vaccines being rolled out. The millions and millions of people that are in line will mean that the average person may need to wait many weeks before they get the jab.

Expect employers to keep employees at home as they continue working from home and doing the best they can.

How to Find a Side Hustle That Ideally Works for You

Hi everyone!

I got a minor writer’s block lately when I realized that it’d been a while since the last time I wrote a post related to remote work or blogging. So this time, I decided to share some tips about finding an ideal side hustle that works for you.

These days, especially after the pandemic hits the world, I figure that having a side hustle that could earn you extra money definitely helps. Like, life is hard enough to live in this weird year. But I suppose it’s easier if you have multiple income streams, with a side hustle that actually generates money for you.

In the past couple of months, I found many posts in the blogging community with them basically giving up as they realized that they earn nothing after a few months of blogging. Meanwhile, I also have an acquaintance who quit his job to start a Youtube channel.

While I adore his courage, I think if money is your primary orientation when you start your platform, I think it’s not a wise move to take unless you have a back-up plan.

So, how could you find a side hustle that ideally works for you?!

How to Find a Signature Brand Voice for Your Blog

I spent last weekend dealing with my blog as my blog layout got all scattered and all over the place. After I finished redesigning the theme and all that, the redirection from my old permalink has gone wrong. November wasn’t an excellent start for The BeauTraveler, I figure.

Initially, I wanted to continue my Indochina trip post last weekend, but since I had to deal with all the back-end stuff for my blog, I decided to do it later. And instead, I want to write about blogging again this time.

And today, I want to share the tips to find your signature brand voice for your blog, because I think your brand voice is essential as this will make you stand out among others no matter how saturated you think your niche is.

I know for sure that not everyone likes the way I write or the brand voice I have for this blog. I’ve been criticized a lot for the way I deliver stories or information. Or guess what? The incorrect grammar I use in the post. As if English isn’t my third language!

Eduplex: Coworking Space Open for 24 Hours in Bandung, Indonesia

Despite claiming that I’m not suitable for a digital nomad lifestyle, I would say remote working is now my jam as I’m more comfortable working from home while wearing my pajamas.

Nevertheless, it didn’t stop me from trying a new thing because working remotely gives me a reason to try using some coworking space nearby.

And you know what? Now I’ve got my favorite place to work in my hometown that is not my house, and it’s Eduplex.

Eduplex is a coworking space in Bandung that is open 24/7. Located in the city center of the capital city of West Java in Indonesia, I went to this coworking space multiple times. And since I get used to working late after midnight, sometimes I even finish at 2 or 3 in the morning.
