I have an MA in public history and a BA in American studies. I love history and travel and enjoy writing articles on both subjects.
The Ughill Murders, Sheffield, England.
I was initially aware of this story as a kid from my parents. I grew up not too far away from Ughill, and I remember my dad would always comment “that's where that man killed the babysitter”. That was not what happened, but the local gossips always had a theory about the events that occurred September 21, 1986.
Should You Join Only Fans as a Side Hustle?
There is no escaping Only Fans, especially after all the hype surrounding Bella Thorne making over one million dollars in her first day on the adult site without even getting her kit off. The Bella Thorne hype, as well as Lockdown rules, saw record numbers of people signing up to the site in the hope of making some easy money. But is it that easy to make money on OnlyFans if you do not create anything raunchy? Surely if it was, everyone would be doing it?
The Problem With Only Fans
People are fascinated by Only Fans. As a historian, I love writing about history. In reality, hardly anyone reads my articles. The most popular posts that I have written have been about Only Fans and social media in general. The popularity of the platform combined with speaking to an aquatint led me to write another post. This particular creator, who wants to remain anonymous wanted to share her experience on the site to help others who may be considering joining, so she agreed to do a Q&A with me.
TikTok Side Hustles
When I scroll through my TikTok ‘for you’ feed, it is littered with creators claiming that they make thousands from various side hustles. I love side hustling and have tried all sorts in the past to make an extra few $$ on the side. So I decided to try a few of these side hustles that people on TikTok were recommending. Some I had tried before, some I already do and some were completely new to me.
Want to Stop Using Google? Here Are Some Alternatives to Their Services
After reading a number of negative articles and posts about Google and their parent company Alphabet inc, I decided that I was going to try and stop using everything that was related to Google and its group of companies. According to Wikipedia, there are currently 243 Alphabet-owned companies and that number continues to grow.
Fed up of YouTube?
If you are starting a YouTube channel in 2021 then getting noticed on the platform can be very difficult. Tens of thousands of creators are signing up every day and it seems like everything has already been done on YouTube. If you are starting a channel with the purpose of getting monetized then be warned, growth on the platform can take years and even when you reach those golden numbers of 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time, you are still not guaranteed to get your content monetized.
The Most Effective Way to Increase Your YouTube Subscribers
I looked at my YouTube Channel a couple of months ago and noticed that I started it in 2014. Instantly, I wished that I had put more time and effort into it years ago as I feel that I have maybe missed the YouTube boat. Regardless, since graduating from university in 2020, I have made a push to create more content on YouTube, but I have found that my growth on the platform has been very slow.
Ways for Small Creators to Earn Money From Their Content
As writers, freelancers, content creators, it can be a struggle to earn a decent living, especially if you are just starting out. We put hours of time into what we create for sometimes little or no rewards, and whilst some of the top YouTubers and Instagrammers make millions, there are hundreds of thousands of smaller creators, like myself that barely make any money.
