How to Make Money Blogging

So many people wonder how money is made writing and posting pictures. I realized this several years ago, and I started asking questions on Google just as many people do now.
Bloggers make 6 figures, blogging about personal interests, news, gossips etc.
Many of them are regular people, just like you and me.
But questions we always ask exactly were how are they doing it? And could I make money blogging too?
Well before we answer the questions this should be your primary goal: To make your blog the go-to resource for your niche. When people visit and seek your advice, you will make money through your various income streams.
You will need to start a blog, start creating very useful and resourceful contents and promote your website.

HOW MUCH DO BLOGGERS MAMAKE.

It varies, while some make millions a years, others make thousands, while some are not keen on making money.

There are many bloggers buying houses, cars, with proceeds from their site, and the income options available varies.
I cannot put an authoritative figure on how much bloggers make monthly or yearly. But a well monitized blog should generate over Two million naira a year for starters and as you grow the figure increases.

The most important personal questions are:

  1. How much do you want to make.
  2. How do you want to monitize your blog to generate money for you.
  3. How much of work do you want to put in your blog.
If you want quick money, then blogging is not for you. Blogging is like building a business, you don’t make profits until a certain time. And the amount of time you invest in your blog will determine how much your blog will earn. The idea that you can start and make a full-time income within a few months is not realistic.

Ways Bloggers Make Money:

  1. Google AdSense
  2. Direct Advertisin
  3. Affiliate Marketin
  4. E-commerce
  5. Digital Products
All these listed above are ways income can be generated on your blog. If you take your time to research on them and start, your income will start rolling in.

Five Habits That Will Improve The Confidence Of Your Child

jobbpro. adorable

This faithful day Queen sat tired on the sofa. She has finished doing the chores.  It will be nice if she just drank a cup of beverage and watch TV. As she reached for the beverages shelve, she saw Annie her daughter hiding behind the table, crying. 

Just over the weekend, Annie came back from playing with her friends but with swollen eyes, she had been crying, poor child. Annie is finding it difficult to play with her friends, and this has been a concern to Queen.

Unlike her siblings, she does not have the confidence whenever her friends are home with her or when the kids go out with other kids to play. She cries a lot, she does not participate in activities like her peers.

She stumbles on an article like this and it was a great deal. Children face some hard knocks, and it is important to equip them with confidence.

For a child to be confidence she needs to have the right perception about life, she needs to discover her strength and weakness. More encouraging words will do a lot of good, she need to know she is fine and the stage she is will soon be over.

Queen need to discover what brings her fears and tell her how she can deal with them.

Let us look at the following 5 points that can help a child like Annie build her confidence.

  1. Always give praise: I really think is should come first among my tips this is because i feel many parents and guardians do not do this. Always give praise when it is due. Even as adults, our emotions can be under control because of maturity but when it comes to praises, we can really feel dejected or unwanted when we expect to receive and we do not. Someone wrote “If a child fails at something or shows no talent at a particular skill, praise the effort, but don’t unrealistically praise the results.” I agree with this in total, many parent yell at their children in public because of this: this is a mistake you should not repeat please. When she does some things unexpected or she come short, encourage her by telling her she just need to practice more, it take repeated efforts to achieve certain goals. Give her a high 5.
  • Let them figure out problems by themselves: Allowing your children does the hard work by themselves will help them build the confidence they need in life. So many time parent help their children too much, this will prevent them from developing he abilities and confidence required to figure out things. Guide them, lead them not be the one to do it 100%. Its better they come back to you with a little failure and teach them how not to repeat the same mistakes.
  • Help her set realistic goals: If a child Annie always to feel defeated by disappointments, encourage her to think about specific ways that bring her closer to her goals. Sometimes a child have endless goals and endless questions some of these goals may not be realistic; you love should guide her in her thoughts, your answers must be the one she can trust. At that moment, you are her teacher, encourager, map and everything. Whenever she fails, you can encourage her by saying “ Can we find a better way to make this work” or “you tried But let’s do this together this way, that way”
  • Set rules and be in charge: Every child thinks rules are too strict; eventually they are best gainers of these rules. When a child is able to abide by the rules at home, she will have confidence in what she can and cannot do, when she is at home or not at home. Set rules and enforce them consistently, be clear on what is important in your family. Always tell them the benefits of the rules, when they see the benefits they learn and are encouraged.
  • Nurture her interests and let them act their age: Try to identify what she is good at an early age and assist her to excel in it. Everyone have one thing they are good at, as a parent, encourage their interest and praise them. Do not impose your wish on them and do not expect them to behave like adult or get it right always. Expose them to hubbies and environment that will improve their passion and be proud of it.

I listen to variety of talks, videos, to motivate me. There’s a playlist on my phone, most times I use it to kick start my day or I use them to get perspectives. If you are burning out listen to motivational audios, you can get them on YouTube. 5.

How your heart makes you happy.

To be happy you must be healthy. Your good health is your happiness. It is hard to happy when sick, there is always a constant remembrance of pain or inadequacy.

Some years back I developed tooth ache and I had to remove the tooth eventually.

Oh geees, the pain I went through for months can not be explained. I remember days when I self medicate, take doses of pain killers because the pain was unbearable.

Happiness is nothing more than good health. 

Also there are pains that are not physical, which affects our heart, our happiness.

Have you wondered why or how the heart is associated with love.

A man can developed a heart attack immediately he hears the news of Infidelity. 

The thought of a bad business, loss of business. Sad news easily affects our heart and in some cases leads to severe illness, sometimes even death.

We experience symptoms of chest pain, discomfort and pressure, pain in areas such as the arms, neck, back and jaw, as well as shortness of breath, sweating and discomfort that mimics heartburn.

How is it even possible that thoughts, news, stories, affection, feelings is linked to our heart. Meanwhile There is no physical cell that can be easily attributed to it.

Our heart beats 100,000 times a day and pumps like 2000 gallons of blood. 

We also read that the heart, which is a muscle, has twice the power of the leg muscles of someone sprinting. 

If the hearts works this hard, is it very important we care for it well. Doing the right things, eating the right foods and having the right thoughts. 

A man can die faster if the thoughts in his heart are unhealthy. Unhappiness leads to depression, eventually death.

We have been told:

  1.  To exercise regularly. 
  2. To check up with the doctor periodically.
  3. Cut down cholesterol.
  4. Reduce salt.
  5. Quit smoking.

Always do this and your heart muscle will be fine.

What about the aspect of our heart that is connected to love, emotions, feelings. How to we care.

We will discuss this too.

Remain happy.

Leave the crowd, learn to listen to yourself

Very few people start off with great advantages, personally I did not have many opportunities of my own, my school days was not interesting, it made me ask lots of questions that I did not get answers to.
Some have opportunities and are born with silver spoons, the world goes round for them and almost everything is easy.

With a silver  spoon or without, you still have to chart your own course if you want to stand out.

Having exrayed these 2 different views on life, one mistake we can make to further dampen our chances for a happy life or plunge our appetite for greatness is following and staying  with the crowd.

One  quote from one of my favorite authors Robert Kiyosaki says “No one achieves great things by following the crowd. Have a spine. Strike your own path.” 

In other words successful people are able to draw the line, look look into the future as far as they can determine, and forge their own path into destiny.

I also want to add that: the future is always clearer when you can listen to yourself clearly. It is like listening to a new beautiful song, to get into the depth of the song, you will like to know the lyrics and the melody. 

You cannot get into the heart of the song if your environment is noisy. 

Most times we move into our closure, with eyes closed, plugged earpiece, we listen and digest the music we create pictures with it, it becomes part of us.

Note these:

1. When you leave the crowd you listen to yourself more clearly, you are now able to draw charts for your plans. Your thoughts are clearer,

The charts create willingness to succeed, consetration, focus.

 2.  It helps you identify your strength,   it shows you what you can do and cannot do. 

Thus your ability to identify and plan position you.

People who lacks the ability to leave the crowd and listen to themselves lacks the ability to master their appetite.

Before you can stand out, you need to leave the crowd. Listen to yourself, make your vision clearer, and you will stand out.

My One Dollar Watch.

Its almost a year since I have been using my fine wrist watch with a dark green belt. 

That kind of watch you wear and you start have the feeling you are the only “wearer” in town. Its not really a digital watch but it tells current time.

The watch has an army green straps and it built with a big face, which makes it unique for me. The one dollar price is not a problem, when I  wear it gallantly I flaunt it like it’s worth more.

As we all know time cannot be caught because lost time is never to get again. Time is life itself. So, I take my time seriously, and my watch? I love it.

You should get a watch if you don’t have one.

One day, I was halfway down the staircase when I remembered my hand was bear, it was like something was wrong with my neat uniform dress.  

I mused, should I go out without a wrist watch,  i imagine how women stay faithful to their makeup every minutes of a day, 365 days of the year, some even wear it to sleep.

Midday, that faithful Monday, I thought about the price of the watch, how it doesn’t matter to me, howbit makes me feel complete. Talking about purpose and value.

An article on BBCnewhub wrote that the world most expensive wrist watch with an exceptional look, Chopard 210 karat  is around $25,000,000.

CAN YOU IMAGINE!

And here I am sitting bragging about my one dollar machine, it is one in town too, at least I haven’t seen any person wear it.

The happiness it gives.

Life can be beautiful if we don’t value everything it brings by only the price tag.

1. Using price tag alone, makes us loose a lot from life.
2. We over price people and we miss a lot in friendships and wisdom.
3. Sometimes we even tag people mindless, by assuming they can offer us nothing.
4. Most of us have a few dollar we can put to use, but we will prefer to buy the most expensive items only to find out, we’ve only wasted time and resources.

My one dollar watch tells me time, it complement my uniform and people sometimes over price.

Get to know people, use things, go to places, listen to stories, learn people, you will discover a lot is hidden behind the price you see at the surface.

Your Future is in your hands.

Let me tell you a story quickly that will illustrate the topic above. 

 Once upon a time, a long time ago, in a land far away, there lived an old man in a house on top of a hill. He had dedicated his entire life to study and meditation. 

He was known far and wide for his intelligence, sensi-tivity, and wisdom. Politicians, businesspeople, and dignitaries came tovisit him and ask him questions. His answers were always correct. 

He seemed to have a special faculty that enabled him to cut to the essence of any problem or issue. 

When his answers and solutions were implemented, the result was always excellent. His fame soon spread throughout the land.

In the village below the hill was a group of boys who played together. Sometimes they climbed the hill to visit the old man and askhim questions, for which he always seemed have the correct answer.

Over time, it became a little game, with the boys continually trying to think of a question that the old man could not answer. But they werenever successful.

One day, the ringleader of the group, a called the others around him and said, “I have finally found a way to stump the old man. 

Here in my hand, I have a bird. We will go and ask the old man if the bird is alive or dead. If he says that it is dead, I will release it and it will fly away.

 If he says that it is alive, I will crush it, and the bird will be dead. Either way, he will at last have been proven wrong.”

Excited about the prospect of finally catching the old man with a wrong answer, they hurried up the hill. 

The old man watched them coming and noticed the eager looks on their faces. 

Then the ringleader stepped forward and asked, “Old man, I have a bird here in my hands. Is it alive or is it dead?”

The old man looked at their mischievous, expectant faces and then

quietly said, to him, “it is in your hands.”

What you eventually become is what you did with it what you have in your hands.

Because you want to be a Leader

What is LEADERSHIP.

Ability to manage and influence others to maximize their potential to achieve set goals.

Leadership is providing the adequate information and method to realise a vision.

Leadership is the act of inspiring others to engage in methods that aids achieving success.

What LEADERSHIP is NOT.

Leadership has nothing to do with hierarchy or seniority in position.

Leadership is not power, your follower must give you. You earn it.

Leadership has nothing to do with titles.

SOFT NOTES..

I think leadership is about maximizing the effort of subordinates.

I’ll go first follow me, watch me and meet me at the top.

YOU MUST.

Develop clear communication skills. Speak with  concern, persuasion, purpose. Listen and answer questions objectively.

Be very optimistic and provides positive energy always.

Have a positive attitude. Encoiurage yourself and let it show in your actions.

QUOTE
“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.” – Jack Welch

DEVELOP YOUR..

1. Your Personality traits: It must be nurtured and grown. I want to say be strategic (in many ways)
2. Your Approach and reaction to Situations. Choose the best that keep your followers motivated.

QUOTE

“The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” Ronald Reagan

“Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily, even if you had no title or position.” Brian Tracy

“Earn your leadership every day.” Michael Jordan

Why you need a happy attitude

girl, atagone,

HAPPY ATTITUDE.

“The more you have a certain thought, the deeper the imprint that this path will make and the easier it will be for the thought to reenter your mind. That’s why it is good to constantly have uplifting, encouraging thoughts.”

Our thoughts makes us see circumstances whether favourable or not. If you believe what you think is good, you become it, by living in that thought.

I have since learnt that my mind is the pathway to my happiness, as much as possible I guide what goes in it.

I know a happy attitude increases creativity, it enforces discovery. It improves your relationship. Your interpretation of many things makes you happy.

I have been living in this lifestyle and I know how pleasant it is.

Your mental conditioning helps you make the right decisions.

A happy attitude comes from your believe system. What you believe forms in your mind and eventually you become it.

No amount of money will make you happy, no amount of houses can make you happy, not the pretty face of a lady or the good looks of a man. All these things are only gives you instant gratification.

How do you have a sustained happiness. Is it possible to develop a mentality that is always happy. Yes it is.

Some things I started doing are listed below, and I want you to read thoughtfully.

Marry a new view to look at life. You must learn to look at life differently, when you enter a room and people are arguing and grumbling, you are smiling.

When people see brick Wall you have a mentality to provide solutions. You are not trapped or caged.

Every time we experience an emotion for example anxiety, sadness, happiness, joy, love, it’s always preceded by a set of thoughts that are unique to that emotions.

Your preceding thoughts must be uplifting. These preceding thoughts can be controlled, it is always these thoughts that determine your next point of action.

Another way to develop a happy attitude is taking responsibilities for who you are and who are going to be. When things are working according to plan, relish the pleasure, when it is not working take responsibility and step in the pivotal role to create a change.

Tell yourself this is who I am.
This is where I am from.
This is who I am going to be.

I own this, I made this mistake, I will improve in this. Taken responsibility for yourself.

A positive attitude can change a destiny, it did for me it can do for you too.

Being handsome, beautiful, rich is all in the attitude.

“Positive thinking isn’t about expecting the best to happen every time, but accepting that whatever happens is the best for this moment.”

That’s the attitude.

Focus on the things you love not on the things you hate or don’t like. When was the last time you look around you and you are filled with joy, you just see everything working for you. You notice everyone is arguing, complaining, not happy but all is just fine to you.

…For a long time you have shifted focus to see everything good and pleasant,  you now see everything people call negativity as a step to a better you or a better day.

Sometimes you talk to things as like, they answer to you and people wander, what is wrong with you.

Take time to develop a happy attitude and you will be able to sustain yourself.

Build one, its yours.
