Why do you write?

I asked this question in my previous post; why do we write? These days it is the most obvious questions that elude us the most.

Have you ever sat down to really ask yourself why you write? That’s if you write. Or I want to ask you now, do you write? And if you do, why do you?

I did some searching on the internet concerning this question, and I found out that people mostly write because they can’t not write. Doesn’t make sense, right? I mean, how can’t you can’t not write? Lol.

Seriously, people write because they are compelled to write. It’s like a spell for them, waking them up in the dead of night to go write on tree barks that bleed and anyone who drinks of the tree blood will be infected with the writer’s curse.

Okay, seriously, writing is an art. It is a way to express yourself. Writing is not just about stories, there are people who write computer programs, religious books, amid others. Or let me put it this way, storytelling is an art. And so is programming too. Anywho, point remains that writing takes some skill, imagination, creativity.

But the most important question is — why do do write on WordPress? Or what are the places to write on the goddamn internet?

I feel where you write is as important as writing itself. Are you rewarded for taking your time to write something that many people read? Or is it just a compulsion for compulsion sake?


Thanks for reading, friends. I always try to ask the difficult questions and find answers to them. Stay tuned for more insightful writeups.

3 Ways To Achieve Financial Freedom

We are all trying to break through many struggles in life, thinking of where the next meal, or house, or car, or anything fancy is going to come from. We all aspire toward some form of greatness, some form financial freedom.

But the truth is financial freedom doesn’t come easy, you have to toil and toil except you’re from some financially rich background. And even if that’s the case, you might still want to make something for yourself.

I don’t judge people based on fortunes they were born into. Be you rich or poor, life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. If you have a good head start, then good for you. End of the day, quality of life is what really matters, how influential you’ve been in other people’s lives.

But for clarity sake, what is financial freedom?

Financial freedom is the level you reach when you have amassed enough income to live the life you want.

Take note of the word want. Remember that want is different from need. You need what is necessary, you want what you want dream. Two very different things.

Okay, enough talk. What must you do today to be truly financially free?

Here are some tips:

1. Spend Less Than You Can Afford

I’m sure this isn’t your first time of hearing something like this, but it doesn’t make it any less true or valid.

Truth is, you need to be as frugal as you can be.

People run into financial troubles most times because they spend more than they can afford.

This tip is telling you to spend way less than you can afford. Instead of going for that 10 bucks meal, make it a 5. Yea, even though you can afford a 20. That’s the whole point to this.

2. Learn to Bargain

Some people say they don’t bargaining skills. I say, there’s no such thing, we all learn as we go.

Negotiation is an art. It’s a skill you just have to learn to be financial emancipated. It’s very important.

“It’s 10 bucks, can I pay 5?”

“That’s too low, take it for 9.”

“Okay, you know what, I’ll give you 7, that’s all I have.”

3. Save

Probably the oldest trick in the book, right? But still very useful.

I also tell people, money has one language; save me today and I’ll you tomorrow.


Thanks for reading. The hustle is real indeed. I hope I was of help here. If so, then share, like, comment, anything.

It’s okay to be alone for a while

Featured

Its okay to want to be left alone for a while. It doesn’t mean you’re insensitive, it only means you’re human and need some time to sort personal things out.

People who want to be left alone aren’t inconsiderate, especially if they don’t do it all the time.

Yea, we’re social beings but we still need time to process.

Life is complex (to say the least) and everyone is kind of trying to figure it out. In other words, every human being needs some alone time. Even if you have a spouse or a lover or a close friend, you still need your alone time, because it’s not every last detail about you the other person knows and you still need your alone time to sort things out in your mind.


Thanks for reading as always, friends. Let’s all figure out together, this beautifully perplexing thing called life.

This Blogging Thing is Hard

Look, this blogging thing is hard. Sometimes it doesn’t even make sense why I get on some platform called WordPress and write things only a dozen people will see. You kind of get the feeling that you’re wasting your time.

I’ve seen on a blog post or two how it is important that you write for yourself or a particular reader, but you can’t neglect the fact that some amount of recognition is also important in encouraging the blogger. The likes and the views matter.

Human beings are social beings. We love when we’re being recognized, when we’re being seen, it kind of validates our existence.

“Oh, they know I’m alive. My work matters. What I do matters. I matter.”

Those words up there are some serious dopamine actuators, pure motivation.

It is good to feel good about yourself and also about what you do. Whether you write, take photos, do lab science, work in a bank, an engineer, an artist, it is very important to feel good about yourself.

Fortunately and unfortunately, we live in a world were we have to pay for things to move, you know, there’s got to be some kind of stimulant; money. To get these views you have to pay. You have to pay to promote your posts and your site. It kind of makes sense, but we also see a lot of junk being promoted.
