If you don’t know what a cryptocurrency is or how mining works; if you want to learn more about Bitcoin, what Pi Network is, and the kind of profits and risks that come with investing in cryptocurrencies, then this is the article to read.
Disclaimer: I’m an engineer, not a financial advisor or a trading expert, nor am I holding myself out to be. Thank you.
I am going to be bluntly honest here and say that this was not an easy topic to research and study. Maybe because it has been a while since I did some comprehensive reading on a topic I’m not familiar with (given this is my first article this year), or perhaps because it is indeed a bit of a complex topic.
Either way, I hope that in this article I would have managed to make it simpler and easier to understand for those who have absolutely no idea what a cryptocurrency is and how it works.Continue Reading
If you are not sure whether you should be investing in gold or not, or whether investing in gold is a worthwhile investment, you will find your answer in this post.
I have always had this idea that gold was the ultimate investing option. For some reason, me and people around me have this idea that if you have money, it is wiser to not keep it as cash but convert it to gold instead.
And, at the moment, as I was looking for more money investing ways, I thought, “Gold!”
But, since I am approaching this in a serious manner and dedicating my time to finding the best investing methods, I decided not to just follow my inherited idea of how brilliant an investment this would make and actually do some research, listen to what some of the experts say, read statistics, and find actual evidence on whether or not it would be as good of an investment as I, and most people I know, think it is.Continue reading “Investing In Gold: To Buy Or Not To Buy?”
This is my final post of the year, and maybe the last one for a little while; reflecting on the past 12 months and everything I learned through this one-year journey towards becoming my own boss!
This is a little bit overdue. I was planning to publish this post on the first Saturday of the month, but suddenly I had so many things to do at once, and then it was my birthday weekend, followed by a long-awaited vacation to my favourite place in the country.
And while I had initially planned to work on the blog and finish other work-related tasks while on vacation, once I got there, I decided against it.Continue Reading
If you sell a book or any other product on Amazon, or if you are a reviewer, then you must be familiar with some important review rules and the mistakes that may cost you those reviews. In this post, you will learn 6 of the most common Amazon review mistakes, consequences for violating Amazon reviews, and some workarounds too.
I have recently published an ebook where I discussed the process of marketing and promoting your self-published book, and the things you need to do to make more sales and rank higher on charts. One of the things discussed there was how to get more reviews on your book.
And, as a continuation of that topic, I felt it is important to highlight some of the mistakes that authors and reviewers do which can result in Amazon deleting those hard-earned reviews.Continue Reading
If you’re a blogger who is also a fiction writer, you decided to join NaNoWriMo this year, and you often wait till the last minute to get things done, then this is the post to read to help you prepare for NaNoWriMo, even if you’re just one week away.
November is coming and, for writers, you may say this is kind of “our season.” November is NaNoWriMo which is National Novel Writing Month. If you’re not familiar with it, this is a competition that is held online every year where all participant writers dedicate their time to writing everyday, starting November 1st to reach the goal of 50, 000 words by November 30th.
And while it has the word “Novel” in it—because that was the idea of the challenge when they started it, creating a novel in 30 days—you don’t necessarily have to write a novel.
It could be a collection of short stories, a non-fiction book of any type, or anything else; the point of this competition is that you develop the habit of writing everyday and, hopefully, also end up with a finished first draft of your project of choice by the end of the month.Continue Reading
