Give Up the Day Job & Chase Your Dreams!
Success is a funny thing. It can be quite elusive. It can also be jaded, like an ex-lover that you used to enjoy tumbling around with. And just like that ex-lover of yours, the way you saw him/her was as clear as day at the time of courtship. But then something happened. Life got in the way. It has a habit of doing that. It's a mightily intrusive habit, but it happens pretty much every single day.
I'm Going Back to Cali
Los Angeles, California, the city of angels, the place where dreams are made of. It's suc a cliché to say that you want to move to California but I do. The question is, what will I do once I get there? Well, I'm 19 years old so if I were indecisive, I technically have plenty of time to decide. Here's the thing, I already know what I primarily want to do in order to make a living. The problem is that there are so many things I want to do in addition to that. It really shouldn't be much of a problem seeing as there's now easy access to the internet and social media, well there shouldn't be much of a problem in theory.

Creating vs Consuming
“Just as much as we see in others, we have in ourselves.”~William Hazlitt Even if you have a million followers on Instagram, there is always someone with a million more. Hours spent looking at what everyone else is doing and comparing their lives to your own creates doubt and stifles true authenticity. With the advent of live Instagram streams, incessant Snapchat posts, and Facebook check-ins, we can see what everyone is doing at practically every second of every day. We can compare what we eat, what we wear, where we live, what books we're reading, trips we're taking, friends we're with, art we're making, jobs we're performing, shows we're watching, etc.

Testing... 1, 2. Testing
This is going to sound a little pointless. I assure you, it's not. Today, I took a retest. That's totally normal; the weird bit is that I aced the thing the first time.
This Is the Reason Content Marketing for Writers Matters
Content marketing. It's not a term most writers are familiar with, likely because anything with the term 'marketing' in it makes us want to run away and cower in the safety of our tried and trusty pens and pads.
The Facebook Algorithm Explained
A few years ago, back when Facebook relatively had a lot fewer users, you would be able to view every post from pages you liked in your timeline. Now, with almost 2 BILLION users active on the site, as well as the insane amount of marketers and advertisers getting their content on ad space on Facebook, there really isn’t enough space to push all content on people’s feeds.
History of Penthouse vs Playboy
Some say that this was the sexiest war ever fought, others maintain it was the most sexist war in history. Others pretend it never happened (you read Playboy for the articles, right?). One thing is certain: audiences all around the globe benefited from this battle of Penthouse versus Playboy, or as it’s alternately known, the Tortoise vs. the Hare.
What It's Like To Be A: Producer
