How To Find That One Thing That Will Hold Your Attention

I am an advocate of discipline and consistency. I speak about these two virtues all the time. Consistency requires focus – the ability to keep your eyes and hands on one thing, day in, day out, every year, for many years. You start something and stick with it. However, there is often more to it.…

Why did I start the Blog/Content Website Support group?

I will make this brief. I am often contacted by website owners to help solve the problem of traffic and revenue. In my experience, short-term interventions have not yielded significant fruit.

There are people who earn a million monthly and are not millionaires. There are people who earn N250,000 monthly, yet are millionaires. People in the former category/class…

Be an original content creator; or hire one!

Blogs used to be fun. Back in the day, long before blogging became boring, you could read multiple blogs in a field and you would enjoy rich, original content on each of them. These days, many blogs have no originality: read one and you have read exactly what you will find on other blogs in…
