Opting Blogging As a Career in Today’s World

If you’re a completely passionate writer who is looking forward to opt for blogging as a career, then here are some things that might help you have a kick start to your career. Basically, there are 5 kinds of bloggers on this planet of life.

a) The Hobbyist

The kind of person who uses blogging for their personal entertainment or entertainment purpose for the viewers without any intentions or expectations of wages or benefits

b) The Part-timer

The kind of blogger who uses blogging to supplement their income.

c) The Entrepreneur

A person who blogs for a company that they own, to support it through great ideas and interaction with their users, for the improvement of the quality of the company.

d) The Corporate

A person who blogs along with their full-time or part-time association with a company.

e) The full-timer

The person who blogs as a full-time career.

In the above bloggers life, other than the person that blogs as a hobby, there is one thing in common. They get paid, and have a blast! You can be a full-time professional blogger who works particularly at one joint or state of business for a long period of time or even short intervals. Else, you can work as a freelance blogger who changes their medium of work for every blog post or articles being posted. Based on the option chosen, the wages will vary. For example, a freelance blogger may earn wages less when compared to full-time professionals. It can also be the other way around depending on the context of the work being provided.

Structure of wages

In a survey of 1 K bloggers by a well renowned blog site in 2012, it is found that 17% are able to manage their lifestyle or provide support to their family with their blogging career, while 81% never make even $100 from blogging. The other 2% spend less than 2 hours a day blogging but make more than $150K. It all depends on how qualified your blog posts are and what kind of a platform you work for in the case of blogging. You wages depend upon how often you tend to blog, the quality of your content, how competitive your topic is in the web and network, and how effective you are at grabbing a great deal of audience, as well as a bit of luck.

Nothing comes easy. Every form of work takes time to become perfect and to have a proper and a generous stability at a point. Blogging doesn’t snap you to fame all at once, and neither does it make it rain cash all the time. It may take months or even years to reach a state of achievement, as equally taking in any other field. So if blogging is your passion and you want to take it up as a career, then with all proper guidance and planning, start off your career! Best of luck!



Facts That Will STOP Your Addiction To Food

Dieting can be a slow process and it can take a long time to see results. So it’s understandable why people sign up to weight loss fast diets which claim you can shed pounds in just a few weeks.

It’s tempting to sign up to one of these diets when you hear claims that you can “lose 30 pounds in 6 weeks” or “i lost 5 pounds in my first week”, but it is important to know the truth about them. This article will look at some of the things you need to know.

Weight Loss Fast Diets

These diets are also known as “crash diets”. There are many available on the market and each has its own claims that it holds the secret to losing weight fast. Some weight loss fast diets tell you to eat just 1000 calories a day, to cut out all carbohydrates or to drink milkshakes instead of meals. Sound like hard work? That’s because it is!

Depriving Yourself

Fundamental to all these weight loss fast diets is DEPRIVATION. Basically you are starving your body of something it needs. When you starve your body you are more likely to give up and binge eat, which will lead to weight gain.

Health Risks

You could be depriving your body of vital vitamins and minerals it needs to stay healthy. What are the results of a non-balanced diet?

  • Bad skin
  • Weak immune system: more likely to get ill
  • Tiredness and feeling lethargic
  • Loss of concentration
  • Dry tired looking hair

Yo-Yo effect

The most ironic thing about weight loss fast diets is for most people you end up GAINING weight long term. These diets aren’t maintainable so eventually you will return to your old eating habits. You will find when you return to eating normally your body will put on weight easily. This will mean you will need to go on another diet to lose weight again. This is the vicious circle, hence the yo-yo effect.

So How To Lose Weight?

Basically these diets do not work long term because they are impossible to maintain. you may think they are OK short term to lose weight and then you’ll stop. However they often lead to actually gaining weight.

The best solution is making PERMANENT decisions and changing your eating habits, realistically to something that can be maintained. By trying a permanent diet plan you are much more likely to maintain the realistic dieting. Long term this will lead to weight loss which is kept off for life.

The key is consistency, patience and permanent, healthy eating plans.



Jackfruit Shawarma With Tzatziki Sauce

Confession: Before I transitioned to a vegan diet, I ate a lot of meat. Like most, I assumed the animals were humanely cared for and died quickly and painlessly. I learned otherwise after I was well into a plant-based lifestyle.

This didn’t change the fact that I missed the chewy, savory, greasy aspects of my former diet. As a result, I decided to take on applying those characteristics to plant-based mediums. Jackfruit was my first canvas, as I started this new path with a sensitivity to gluten. Being totally unfamiliar with this strange fruit, I started out using recipes I found on the internet.

There are a couple of key mistakes I repeatedly found in jackfruit recipes. The most common is a long cook time. Jackfruit doesn’t benefit from slow cooking. It only becomes mushy, defeating the purpose of using it for texture.

In fact, jackfruit doesn’t need to be cooked at all! The cooking I suggest is mainly to bring it to a temperature that will enhance the flavor and add warmth to the dish.

Also, other jackfruit recipes tend to fail to include fats or oils. Fat is a critical component of the savory-chewy-greasy appeal of meat. To not include any fat or oil detracts significantly from the flavor and results in a less filling entree. The beauty of adding fat to jackfruit is YOU get to choose how much and what kind is in there! I do strongly suggest including the sesame oil at the very least, as it packs a lot of flavor.

NOTE: This recipe is only for the young, green jackfruit in brine or water. These can be either purchased in cans or in bags from Upton’s Naturals.

Jackfruit Shawarma + Tzatziki Sauce

4 cans jackfruit in brine or water

1 package Shan Shawerma Arabic spice mix*

1 T sesame oil

3 T neutral oil

¼ cup lemon juice

1 T granulated garlic

¼ cup nutritional yeast

Earth Balance

Open jackfruit cans into colander, draining off water. Slice jackfruit 1-2 times, creating elongated triangles. (“Acute” angles if you’re geometric)

Place back in colander and hand squeeze out as much moisture as you can.

Add seasonings, yeast, lemon juice and oil and mix thoroughly by hand, kneading seasonings and oil into jackfruit.

Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight to allow flavors to settle.

Saute in skillet with Earth Balance.

Enjoy on lightly toasted pita bread with tzatziki sauce, on a lettuce wrap, as a pizza topping, etc…

Tzatziki Sauce

1 cup vegan mayo

1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped

1-3 cloves of crushed garlic

1/4 cup fresh, squeezed lemon juice

5 to 6 mint leaves, finely minced

Does Your Age Affect Your Short Term Memory?

What impact does the aging process have on the brain and how it processes memories? Can anything be done to prevent the effects of aging on your recall? These are all questions that we have to face as we get older. Thankfully, there are answers.

The question of does your age affect your short term memory may seem odd, but it really is an important question to look at as we get older. Humans have long been wrestling with the aging process attempting to slow it or stop it altogether. Since our minds are central to how we think, what we know, who we are then it perhaps one of the more critical areas to study when trying to determine what impact aging has.

So how does your age affect your short term memory? The answer is varied, but there are a few main factors of aging that inhibit recall and brain function. We’ll touch on three of them here.

The first is a decrease in blood flow to the brain as we get older. As we age the circulatory system can become less efficient and blood circulation can become hindered. Also, the same issue of clogged arteries that can affect your heart also affect your brain. Plaque in the vessels can reduce cerebral blood flow and harm brain function. The brain is highly dependent on the oxygen and nutrients that blood brings to the cells. In fact the brain is roughly the largest user of oxygen among the organs of the body. Decrease in oxygen can impact your short term memory from being able to hold and process information. It decreases concentration and inhibits focus.

Therefore, our diet and exercise levels during our lifetime not only play a role in how healthy our heart stays, but also how well our brains continue to function as we age. So while age is a factor in how efficient our circulatory system operates, we do have the power to delay that process by how well we manage what we eat and how we keep our bodies in shape.

We can also turn to nutritional supplementation to augment this by using vitamin and mineral supplements to ensure we’re getting all the nutrients our bodies need. There are also some good supplements of Ginkgo Biloba and Ginseng that help increase blood flow to the brain and enhance the memory functions. These can be especially useful whether we are young yet or we are in our later years.

The second issue that comes up when looking at how does your age affect your short term memory is the decline of neurotransmitter production. Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that allow your brain cells to communicate and perform their various functions. As we age the problem can be twofold. One is that we can produce less of these chemicals as we age and two the body’s natural process of breaking down excess neurotransmitters can begin to malfunction and work to excess causing a lack of supply for the brain.

Without proper supply of these chemicals the brain cannot perform correctly. One of the issues with Alzheimer’s for example is that aside from physical damage to nerve cells there is also a significant decrease in various neurotransmitters resulting in an inability to process things into memory or out of memory. It can also affect mood and other aspects of the mind.

Again, one of the keys in fighting this problem is in proper nutrition and diet. The body needs to have the right levels of vitamins and nutrients to support the production of neurotransmitters. Also, exercise tends to help slow down the aging process in general and helps keep the production process strong.

Also, supplementation here can be helpful. There are supplements out there that support brain function by providing compounds like huperzine A, which helps counter the destruction of neurotransmitters in the brain as well as L-Tyrosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine and Choline which help in producing brain chemicals and protecting nerve cell function. These can be useful tools in combating age related decline of these functions.

Lastly, one of the important elements in protecting the brain from decline as we get older is to continue to exercise the brain itself. Studies have shown that people who keep mentally active and challenged as they age tend to keep function longer than those who don’t. The habit is to let ourselves slow down. We retire from our jobs and we tend to stop being active and learning new things. This allows brain function to atrophy. You need to continue to push yourself and strive to learn new things. Working the brain even with simple things like word puzzles or brain teasers helps strengthen those functions. The brain physically strengthens the nerves that are used most, so it truly is a use it or loss it process.

The reasons behind how does your age affect your short term memory are varied, but the answers are simple and within the reach of most everyone. Some of the same things we need to do to stay healthy physically help us mentally. Maintaining good eating habits and regular exercise along with staying active mentally as well as possibly using natural supplements to enhance these programs will help ensure that age doesn’t play as big a role in our mental function as it could otherwise.



The Weight Loss Checklist

Staying slim and fit is the need of the hour. No matter how much you deny it but somewhere down your mind you want to shed some kilos and be more likeable. Though the idea behind your efforts should be more health related but getting rid of some pounds never hurt anyone, right? So before you realize you are already checking out the internet and following a crash diet that worked for someone 2000 miles away from you with a different lifestyle than yours! But losing weight and sticking to your new weight cannot be ruled by a fad diet. What you need is a plan that keeps you on track even after you have lost the excess fat bags from your belly. We have got some tips for you that can seriously act as your check list of ‘how to lose weight fast’! Read on to know more and take a step towards a better and thinner you!

Calories matter: You just can’t deny the fact that to lose weight you ultimately have to manage the calories that walk in and out of your body. Shedding kilos would begin by losing more calories than you are taking in. So get down to a journal writing now and keep a tab on the number of calories you are ingesting per day and the calories you are burning with your sweat sessions!

Smaller goals

The biggest problem most of us face while on our diet is that we set unrealistic goals and when they are not realized we leave then half way. So before you begin your routine of weight loss learn to set small goals that are attainable. This way you will have motivation for carrying out your efforts in future because you can validate the result through attaining the small goals!

More water intake: A great way to keep your weight in check is by knowing when you are really hungry and when not. Do you know that thirst is great at confusing you and can often seem like hunger? So before you reach for that bag of chips to calm your growling stomach in mid morning, consider having a drink of water. Chances are that by the time you have finished the glass, you are not feeling hungry anymore. Another reason to drink water is that it will boost your metabolism and you will ultimately be less bloated and sleeker!

Check for added sugar: Do you have an answer for your fat that does not budge even when you have been strict with diet food and all? Though you have been eating only ‘healthy’ packed foods, you have been adding piles of sugar to your body that is ultimately showing through the muffin top! The next time you find yourself in a supermarket for some grocery shopping, check the labels of packed foods (you have no idea how much sugar they contain to make boring things tasty!).

Your agenda of Weight Loss in 3 Weeks can be met with these steps despite keeping fad diets at a safe distance. Making healthy choices throughout the day will surely show its benefits and is definitely safer than anyone of those advertisements of losing weight magically with a diet without shedding a drop of sweat!



The Beauty of Large Wall Clocks

It seems like every time I walk into a really nice home I am sooner or later confronted by one of the hot new trends in interior design: large wall clocks. They are everywhere! And there’s a good reason why: they add a real magnificence to any home in which they appear. I am seriously becoming a big fan of this take on the typical smaller or medium-sized version. Go big, that’s what I say.

The first thing you need to consider if you want to emulate this design trend is if you even have the room to do it. You really only need one thing: a big empty space on a wall. That is all you will need. (And a little cash.) If you are very stylistically inclined then you might be able to kind of wedge a large wall clock in next to some other things on the wall such as photographs or paintings, or even light switches and TV’s. But most people will probably prefer to play it a bit safer and have some space on either side of the clock.

Most people agree that large wall clocks should be classified as being at least two feet wide. This alone is quite big, approximately a third the height of a human. But you may even want a larger one than this. If so, I applaud you. Just make sure you have the wall space and do your measurements before you make the purchase. A lot of us aren’t exactly intuitive when it comes to making visual approximations on measurements. (By the way, two feet equals about 0.60 meters.)

No one can really deny the magnificence of these items. They are a great way to really do something with a big wall. Rare is the person who can make an empty wall look good without doing anything to it. You really ought to make use of this space to show something off. Large wall clocks are a new and modern way to do this. Also, no one will ever forget what time it is! It sort of has the effect of diminishing the consciousness of time in a paradoxical way. It parodies time and our obsession with it. But beyond this it tells everyone who walks into your home that you do things in a big way and you are not afraid to take chances. This is an impression that I think most of us would like to make on our guests and visitors. (It also tells people you are a bit wealthy.)

So that is my little spiel about large wall clocks and how I have become a big fan of them. I suppose not everyone will echo my thoughts, but I just think they are great. The other side of things is that if you take this plunge you will probably want to (at least over time) re-emphasize everything else that is within vision of the clock. It would be a mistake to have your house be overshadowed by one single item.



How Do You Enlarge Your Penis Naturally In The Heat Of The Moment?

Imagine yourself on a date with the woman of your fantasy… pretty, young and voluptuous. You have worked hard setting up this date, waiting for the perfect timing, and now the moment you have been dreaming of has finally arrived.

Imagine further that you have succeeded in seducing the young woman, and she has agreed to spend the night with you… in bed! Now, you become apprehensive: what if your penis does not deliver as expected? What if your erection is not as hard as it used to be? What if the girl is left wanting? Of course you would not want such a letdown to happen! A question immediately comes to mind: how do I enlarge my penis naturally?

Sure, you have heard about medications to enhance performance, but you are afraid of the possible side effects. So how do you enlarge your penis naturally?

They say that the first step in solving a problem is recognizing it. How do you enlarge your penis naturally if you think that that is not your problem? Many men in fact would not admit it’s their problem. Recognizing the problem also mean understanding the problem. Declining libido and sexual desire are caused by many factors, ranging from natural to artificial. Causes can be as natural as mere aging, or as artificial as being psychological. Causes in between are mostly as a consequence of how we live our lives, or what we may call lifestyle causes. Vices like smoking and drinking, poor diet, and lack of exercise contribute considerably to poor sexual performance. Due to poor diet, smoking, and intake of alcohol, the blood vessels constrict the flow of blood in the body, particularly to the penis.

This question that many men are afraid to ask remains – how do you enlarge your penis naturally? An enhancement product, coupled with a healthy lifestyle is the answer. Healthy blood circulation is the key to a healthy sex life. Regular exercise and a balanced diet are important in keeping that healthy blood circulation. Exercise need not mean going to the gym; it could be as simple as using the stairs instead of the elevators, or walking instead of driving your car for very short distances.

For the longest period, people have used concoctions of plants and herbs to enhance virility, and health in general. Natural supplements are perceived to have less side-effects as the synthetic types, and rightly so. Herbal supplements work by allowing a freer flow of blood to the penis, increasing the volume of blood flow by enlarging the blood vessels. The penis size is likewise enlarged.

Networking – Facts to Ponder

Right here in Europe, the very last continent to enter into its growth cycle, there is only around 0.5% involved and we are right at the very beginning of our growth cycle in network marketing. This tells us categorically that over the next ten years there is going to be a massive shift towards network marketing in Europe as in every other country worldwide.

You are sitting at a place in Europe that won’t ever happen again in the history of network marketing. There has to be a further 26 million people in mainland Europe, and a further 3 million in the U.K. have to join this industry to catch up with the ‘average’ level of involvement of all the other countries that have already experienced the 10 years growth cycle.

We are even more fortunate to be associated with the best company, as Kleeneze has more than ten times the network marketing industry’s average of sales per agent, due to the catalogue concept of moving its products and having the right range at the right price. The core range of products is aimed at the items people spend their monthly budget on just to run and clean the home, so even in times of recession, our products move freely. This is because Kleeneze is a 79 year old successful retailing company with an immense amount of experience of the type of product that moves easily and repeatedly. The three trends that are driving this industry forward as in all other countries of the world are:

o General shift towards self-employment (there just isn’t the jobs there used to be and never will be again)

o Home shopping – the fastest trend in retailing worldwide (which our catalogues service!)

o People’s quest for a better lifestyle – they no longer want to work 40 or 50 hours a week just to pay bills.

Every massively wealthy person in history has attributed their success to two predominant factors:

1) Being in the right place at the right time

2) Taking BIG action

YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME WITH KLEENEZE; IT JUST REMAINS FOR YOU TO RECOGNISE IT AND THEN TAKE BIG ACTION!

Avon has over 160,000 agents in the UK alone. Kleeneze has only 14,000 active agents (with a product range right across the board!). Do the sums; the potential future growth is staggering and that’s before expansion into Europe!

Other network marketing companies around the world are producing current incomes of much more than £1 million a year. With sales averages of only one tenth of what Kleeneze’s, then what will we be achieving in ten, fifteen years from now? We already have monthly incomes of £20K, £30K and now £50K! This WILL BE pocket change by comparison, ten to fifteen years from now.

The Kleeneze Opportunity

Kleeneze was set up in 1923 by a man named Harry Crook (b.1889) in Bristol. It was originally called the Kleen-E-Ze Brush Company and it was not until 1937 that diversification was introduced in the way of complimentary wax polishes.

Today the company is part of a £250 million plc based at the original site in Bristol and is one of Europe’s best home based businesses. The company is a respected market leader and is well known by millions throughout the UK, Ireland and Netherlands. In the last four years, the company has experienced huge growth and has paid extra money of more than £97 million to its network of distributors!

Kleeneze UK is also a founder member of the Direct Selling Association which binds all its member companies to a strict code of trading ethics and has been responsible for outlawing many pyramid scams over the years.

Kleeneze UK Ltd is a direct selling company which takes its products to the consumer via independent distributors who work at home and distribute the well known Kleeneze catalogues.

In fact, Kleeneze is one of Europe’s best home based businesses and many of its distributors are already earning over £100,000 per year! Kleeneze has been voted number one network marketing opportunity in the UK in the Streetwise business survey. Hundreds of people throughout the UK and Ireland are already earning extra money of £300 – £3,000 per month in their spare time! People from all backgrounds are required across the UK, Ireland and Netherlands to join one of Europe’s best home based businesses.

Select the Best Opportunity

From the customers’ viewpoint, Kleeneze is one of the best as all its products are keenly priced to sell and priced for profit. The product range categories include – garden and outdoor, workshop, cooking, cleaning, laundry, toys, health and beauty, home products, telecoms, jewellery, sports apparel, innovation products.

So, when you take your ‘mobile’ shop to customers via the catalogues you have a greater volume and variety of products and therefore a greater chance of having products with customer appeal.

Let’s look at the facts:

1) Home shopping is the biggest growth area today – FACT

2) Kleeneze has a range of over 2,000 everyday products – FACT

3) The operation of taking the products to market is simple – post catalogues and collect them a couple of days later (no selling – the catalogues do that for you). This allows the customer to look through the catalogues in their own time and select what they wish to purchase.

4) The distributor processes the orders for customers and keeps a percentage of the retail volume

5) Work 5-10 hours each week retailing and earn and extra £100 – £500 (or Euros) every 4 weeks

6) Share this opportunity with others with the help of your sponsor and watch your team grow along with your income

7) BUT the main thing is that this business WORKS

How to Build Muscle – Or a Simple Shock Routine

When we first started bodybuilding, more years ago than I care to admit, I admittedly over trained – by a ton. But, because I was very young and bodybuilding was new, I grew anyway. Of course, my gains stalled-as do most bodybuilders – as they progress from a beginning bodybuilder to a more advanced one. That is just the way it goes – if it did not, most of us would be over three-hundred pounds of ripped muscle.

I guess we can all dream!

Seriously, though, sometimes, you need to shock your muscles into new growth, and what follows is just that – a shock routine.

The routine is broken up into two workouts, one is focused on pure power movements and the other, is focused on getting the biggest pump possible. Ideally, the first workout should be done early in the morning, and the second one should be done late in the day, to allow the maximum amount of recovery between the workouts. I realize that for some people this might not be possible, so just do the best you can.

NOTE:

Because this routine is advanced, I would recommend that you wait until you have at least two years of solid workouts under your belt before you try the routine you will find below.

Lastly, I picked chest for this article but you can use this approach for any body part.

Here we go!

POWER PLAY

The two exercises you will be using for your first workout of the day are incline barbell presses and chest dips. I chose the incline press over the flat bench because I feel that the flat bench is just too hard on the shoulders.

For the presses, stick to the tried and true 5×5 system – that is five sets of five reps per set, for a total of twenty-five reps. Your goal is to use as much weight as you can, but only if you can use it in PERFECT form.

Please, pause with the bar on your chest for four seconds on each rep.

For the chest dips, just do any many reps as you can for the five sets. Please to not swing during these, again your form must be perfect on each rep.

As for your rest periods – rest as long as you need to feel recovered as again, your goal is to use as much weight as possible.

When you are finished with the above two exercises, stretch out your chest and then take in some good food or supplements post-workout to help with recovery. I prefer a whey protein shake, but if you have a preferred method, by all means use it.

ANOTHER NOTE:

Ideally, if you have the time, you should take a nap sometime after the workout to help you recover for the next workout of the day. If you cannot, just take it as easy as you can.

GOING FOR THE PUMP

Your second and final workout of the day focuses on getting the maximum pump possible.

The two exercises you will be using will be barbell pull overs and push-ups.

Over the six or so weeks that you will use this chest shock routine which is the maximum amount of time I suggest you use this routine. You should work up to five super-sets of the above two exercises.

First do a set of twenty breathing pull overs. The weight does not matter with these, use enough so that you feel it, but not so much that you are struggling.

YET ANOTHER NOTE:

By breathing pull overs, I mean that you should expand your chest as much as you can during each rep.

O.K.

So you have finished your set of twenty “breathing” pull overs – now jump IMMEDIATLEY into doing push-ups.

Do as many as you can without going to failure; leave a few “in the hole”.

Rest two minutes, and do another super set.

When you can get all five sets, you can start wearing a weight vest for the push-ups.

You do not need to increase the weight you use on the pull overs, as I do not want you to lose the feel of the movement.

Once you are done, make sure you take in your post-workout meal, and then if possible, hit the sack for the night.

CONCLUSION

I know the above routine is tough, but again, please remember, that the above routine is mainly for shocking your chest (or whatever body part you use it for) into new growth and should NOT be used as your normal routine.

When you do decide to use the above routine, make sure you clean out your schedule so that you have the time and energy to do justice to the routine.

If you do, I know, that in a few weeks your chest just may be “shocked” into some new growth!

DO IT!
