My first random blog post for 2021 and my new site Bad Ass Ape. Here is a little info about why I created Bad Ass Ape. I just wanted to start a random blog but had no idea what to type about. So in the end I decided on a blog that has multiple topics through out. So as this post is going to be random, I might as well share some ideas on how others can get started and any other random things i can come up with.
Random Blog Name Generator
You’ve just started a blog on WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, or some other site, but what do you call it? This random blog name generator has multiple questions for you to answer and suggests possible names for your blog. Make names for characters, children, writers, and bands. Search at random or sort by gender, popularity, birth year, country, personality, and a variety of other factors.
Our name generator’s goal is to assist you in finding the ideal name for any occasion. You have the option of generating names at random or guiding the method. You may search for names for characters and babies from various backgrounds, including by country, religion, and popularity of names by birth year. You have the option of specifying male or female names, or both. In addition to a thesaurus and other word lists, our robots use a thesaurus and other word lists to recommend names that are similar to the terms you provide. Some of our tools create entirely new titles, resulting in completely unique instances.
My Random Blog Twitch
I know this is a brand new and evolving random blog, and it always will be, but today I want to write something a little different. This is a post about anything and everything that comes to mind first thing in the morning.
I felt like improving my typing skills again, and as I move into my new lifestyle as a self-employed person (more on that later), I need to get back into the habit of typing quickly! Since it isn’t aimed around any keywords, there’s a fair chance no one will read it.
(When I first typed this sentence, there was a spelling error that I didn’t find for about 20 minutes! I guarantee I’m an expert!) I’m an SEO specialist, which means I know how to get posts to rank well in search engines.
If you look for “benefits of rock climbing” in a separate tab right now, you’ll find my article ranked far above the Huffington post. This was not by chance, and while I normally concentrate on keywords, content style, and a variety of other factors, I’d like to try something new this time.
I’d like to write this random blog post without any consideration for search engine rankings. This is a post that will most likely only be seen by those who actually read this blog.
You’re probably reading this because you received it in an email or because you clicked on a link to it from another blog post. In any case, you’re here, and that’s the most important thing.
If you stick with me long enough, I hope I can encourage you in some way. You will at the very least get a peek into the mind of a 33-year-old first-time blogger. (It’s possible I’ll be a digital nomad soon.)
I recently switched from a full-time agency job to working as a freelancer for that agency on occasion and focusing the majority of my time on my own projects, random blogs, and ventures. This would have been a tough adjustment if I didn’t have a fantastic boss.
My boss was very supportive of the situation, and we now have a fantastic working relationship and continue to be friends. It’s very good! However, transitioning from full-time employment to full-time self-employment can be perplexing.
It’s difficult to know what to concentrate on next because there’s no fixed plan (yet). Now, in order to stop this blog post being a huge wall of text with few photos (I’m not sure if I’ll include images at this stage because it’s not a concentrated post!) I’ll use small headings, as I normally do, to keep you from getting bored and abandoning this message!
There’s a good chance you’re thinking to yourself, “What the heck is this random blog and why am I here?” but I guarantee that if you stick around long enough, you’ll come to appreciate my writing style and the fact that it’s a little different than other personal improvement blogs.
So, now that you’ve quit your job, how do you stay focused? I finished a novel…
The Random Book (Hidden Gem)
The one item is a small book that discusses why it’s important to concentrate on just one issue at a time. The title refers to the fact that there is only one thing. Oh, and don’t forget to look at my money review books; they’re great).
In reality, the author is so certain of this that the whole boo is simply about getting you (the reader) to think about just one thing.
It’s really smart, and the concept is fantastic. Essentially, when you wake up in the morning, you ask yourself the concentrating question, “What is ONE THING I can do right now that will make Anything ELSE simpler or irrelevant?”
Wow, that was incredible.
The first time I read it, it made no sense to me, but the second time I read it, it hit me like a tonne of bricks. There will always be one thing that is more important than all of the others when you think about it.
You can narrow down an entire to-do list to ONE item that makes all of the other stuff simpler if you just think about it for a few minutes. Of course, the one thing will change over time, and any time you cross one item off your to-do list, another will appear…
But that isn’t a problem.
Something else only… happens after you’ve figured out how to concentrate on one item at a time and choose the most IMPORTANT thing.
What is your one thing if you’re a young man looking for a new job?
First, consider the type of work you want.
So, what’s next?
Make sure you have a fantastic CV.
Then sign up for a slew of career search engines, and so on…
Many people, however, muddle it up by applying for any and all work while still worrying about what they want to do, juggling interviews with jobs they applied for a week ago (while ignoring which job they applied for!) and having to tweak their CV.
You must streamline your operations.
At one point, I owned 35 websites and was attempting to turn them all into profitable businesses. It was excessive! And when I had a full-time agency job, I was juggling about five other tasks on the weekends and in the evenings!
Attention and mental energy are also resources that deplete over time. It’s tempting to believe that you should only concentrate on one thing all day, but this isn’t true. Your brain is like a muscle, and you’ll have to take my word for it because I can’t remember where I learned this, but studies have been done to prove it!
Really, you should prove that to yourself.
Try to concentrate on something for the whole day, seven days a week, with no breaks. You’ll notice that even at your peak, you’re not as productive towards the end of the day and the end of the week.
Your attention span is finite.
Early in the day, concentrate on what you need to concentrate on.
Your most active hours are normally the first 2-3 hours of your day, starting from the moment you wake up! Sure, some people are more active at night, but the majority of us prefer the mornings!
Even if you don’t consider yourself a morning person, you can still be most productive in the mornings. You’ll find that if you make a concerted effort to wake up and work at a reasonable hour, you’ll be able to accomplish a lot. It’s 10 a.m., and I’ve already completed more work on my own pages in an hour than I have in the previous two weeks.
It’s not that I’m lazy; it’s just that I work best in the mornings. I get things done and am able to concentrate.
I can’t do that in the evenings because I just want to relax and listen to piano music in the water, particularly after a workout or dinner! (It doesn’t matter if people know; it’s really relaxing!)
So, I think you need to take a good look at your week and see what you want to accomplish, and then try to fit in small time blocks in the mornings to get it done!
What is the point of this post?
To be honest, it’s more of a vent for me, with the hope that it’ll be useful to you.
It’s supposed to be about getting stuff done. But that’s the point of this rambling random blog post: getting stuff done. By the way, I’ve decided that with this entry, I’m going to try to rank for a keyword – can you guess what it is? If you figure it out, you get 10 points from griffindor.
For nothing else, I feel compelled to write this as a reminder to myself that I’m following my heart and doing the right thing. In a year, I want to be able to look back on today and see how far I’ve come.
Why don’t you follow suit?
Why not do something in your life that you’ve been dreaming about doing or beginning for a long time? Play along with me starting today, May 19th, 2016 (a completely random date, I know) and see where life takes you.
Take a gamble and follow your heart.
A few months ago, I saw a video by Elliott Hulse about following your heart, and it really resonated with me. Many people, I believe, do not obey their hearts and do what they REALLY want to do, and the majority of the time, it is due to financial constraints.
Is it all about the cash?
The world revolves around money.
Money does not always make you happier, but it does make life easier.
It does make things more manageable. If you’re unhappy when you’re broke, you’re likely to be depressed when you’re wealthy.
If you’re content when you’re bad, chances are you’ll be content when you’re wealthy.
You can be poor (or sad) and happy, or you can be wealthy and happy (or sad).
The two aren’t always related.
That being said, being wealthy makes it easier to be happier because you can escape some of the things that trigger depression and lower your quality of life.
You’ll be less depressed and more likely to be comfortable and concentrate on what you want if you don’t have to think about paying bills. Cash, on the other hand, is not created equal.
HEADS UP – We’re going off on yet another tangent, so buckle up!
Money isn’t always made equal.
What exactly do I mean when I say this?
I mean, one person’s £1000 can have a VERY different impact on his life than another’s.
Let’s take a look at two individuals –
Person A – Earns over £500,000 per year and works for a major company for 60 hours a week. He’s still working and has an obnoxious boss with whom he doesn’t get along.
Person B – A tiny YouTube channel earns him £1500 per month. The money is passive, and the platform is him talking about what he enjoys.
Person B, on the other hand, has a LARGE gap in that he or she earns money passively.
He doesn’t need to be in an office, and despite earning significantly less than person A, he has more freedom.
He’s so much more free, in reality, that it’s absurd to consider. Person A could earn what Person B earns in a month in a matter of DAYS and still feel stuck. Person B, on the other hand, will live on the beach in Thailand with a passive income of £1500 per month.
Since the money is passive, it GOES FURTHER than money gained by actively working in an office. In terms of REAL life value, it’s more valuable.
Sure, the AMOUNT of money earned by these two individuals is vastly different.
Person B, on the other hand, earns £1000 passively, which is WORTH MORE than Person A’s $10,000.
What is the reason for this?
Since person B (let’s call him Mr Passive) has complete control over how he spends the most precious asset of all, TIME. He will make the money when doing something he enjoys with his time. And that is just priceless.
Sure, the first earns a lot more money, but what will he do about it? He’s probably more nervous than usual because he has huge revenue goals to meet, shareholders to please, and boring meetings to sit through, among other things…
While this isn’t always the case, passive income is almost always more beneficial than active income, even though the active income is ten times the amount of the passive income. Are you on board with me?
As a result, there are several ways to generate passive income. In reality, if you want to learn more about how to make money doing what you love, I wrote a post about it, but the most important thing is to consider WHY you’re doing it.
Don’t get enraged!
I’m sure there are a few people reading this (if there are any at all) who are enraged that I’ve basically told them they’re making money the wrong way. Let me clarify why this isn’t the case.
Passive income, in my opinion, is the most effective way to earn money. It frees you from having to be in a certain place or doing something specific with your time.
That said, if you ENJOY what you do for a living, that’s good as well! It’s a decision. That, I believe, is the argument I was trying to make here: it’s an option. You have the choice of working full-time for a business if you like it.
You may also opt to work for yourself and strive to earn money in a passive manner. But don’t get the wrong idea: passive income is HARD to start and requires a significant amount of effort. In reality, it necessitates a significant amount of effort at first.
It’s not for everyone because, at first, you’re putting in hundreds of hours without being paid anything, so it’s not for everyone. In an ideal world, you can do both.
So, if you have a full-time job, set aside some of your savings and invest in stuff so that you can generate passive income from your investments in the future. Crowdfunding and property investments are excellent ways to generate passive income.
So, where were we before?
What’s the point of wanting money in the first place?
(Didn’t I say this was going to be a random blog post?)
Perhaps someone out there is reading this and gaining a new outlook on life and money as a result. Who knows what will happen. Perhaps I’m just sitting here at half-past ten in the morning scribbling nonsense that will never be read.
In any case, let’s keep going.
What are you looking for in those little sheets of paper with numbers on them?
What does an amount in your bank account mean to you?
You need it to buy stuff like food and pay for things like owning a home, for the most part. These things are vital, and we need shelter before the environment transforms into some sort of beautiful perfect system where it never gets cold at night.
But, aside from a few essentials like food, water, shelter, and clothing, we don’t need much. In reality, we don’t need much.
If you haven’t already, you could travel to Thailand next week and live comfortably on less than a third of what you currently spend on rent and food. (When I say that, I’m assuming you live in either England or America, though there are some places in Europe where living is just as cheap.)
Depending on WHERE you are in the country, the cost of living varies greatly. You could live in America and barely pay your rent, buy some nice food, and go out for a meal at a nice restaurant every now and then.
You could live like a king in Thailand for the same money. Let’s take a closer look at this, shall we? Is there someone else here?
Taking advantage of your current situation
It’s sometimes referred to as “geoarbitrage.”
It costs different amounts of money to live in different parts of the world.
Things are paid differently in various parts of the world.
You generate leverage by being in a cheap place and selling items in an expensive place.
That is the simplest explanation of the principle of geoarbitrage. Making the most of what you’re selling and where you’re located. If you sell something online in Prague, for example, you won’t make nearly as much money as if you sold it to the American market.
If you live in Thailand and sell anything to the English market, you don’t need to sell much to be able to live comfortably. Money goes further out there, and you can make a lot of money per sale if you sell to the English market.
It’s a game, and you’ll have to figure out how to play it.
I know I’ve covered some major ideas that should have been their own blog posts by now, and they most likely will be in the next month. It’s all nice. Remember what I said about ideas flowing first thing in the morning?
It’s a productive time of day.
Before closing this page,
I know you’re probably going to click the x button on the tab and go back to looking at memes on Facebook or something when you get to the end of this random blog post, but bear with me for a second.
If you like what I’m saying here and find it helpful, I’m sure there’s someone you know with whom you might share it.
This is the one person you meet who enjoys these types of thoughts and ways of thought. If you could just give it to them, that would be fantastic. On the sidebar of this blog, there should be some lovely sharing buttons just waiting to be pressed.
Have a great day, and don’t forget to crush it!
I’ll end this random blog post with a cool trick that can help you use instagram to make some extra income which I personally used to run this website on Krystal.
