I am a bit of a perfectionist. (Okay, maybe a lot of a perfectionist.) The main reason I have been this way for years is because I think it is important to produce and share good quality work. If I know that I am capable of producing better content, then I want to be able to provide that. But sometimes as a perfectionist, working on a project for an extended period of time leads toread more

It’s pretty surprising, a lot of singers, producers, songwriters, rappers, music artists in general on YouTube are missing out on making passive income with their music. I certainly missed out for over 3 years of passive income with some old song covers, simply because I didn’t know what the heck I was doing. To start off, I am considered an independent artist. I am unsigned. I’ve never been part of a record label. I don’tread more

These are what I believe makes a good blogger, tips that I strive to follow in my own blog. 1) Proper writingI have no clue why, but I cringe when I see improper grammar/spelling, especially when it’s written by an adult. There are certain exceptions. If you’re using slang or improper writing that is common in your particular field or hobby, that makes sense. If you’re still in school, cool. But when you’re finished highread more

Quick disclaimer here, this entire blog post was written by me (Nessy), not by an AI (artificial intelligence), in case that’s what you’re looking for! 😀 I’m fascinated by the idea of using AI for content creation. It can be used for blogging, email, advertisement… Steve Pavlina even gave me the idea of potentially using AI to draft songs. I thought this could be useful, especially in finishing song drafts or in generating new ideas.read more

They say that consistency is the key to success. If you have a goal, a predictable way of achieving it is through breaking it down into steps and then consistently taking action to execute those steps. If you want to declutter a space, just choose an area to start with: the bed, the bookshelf, the desk, the floor, a drawer. Dedicate 15, 5, or even just 1 minute a day to toss trash/recyclables or putread more

I think it’s quite normal for people to have their own set of standards. Everyone’s different. I think as long as it’s not harming someone else, then it’s fine. For example, some people have certain standards for romantic relationships. These could be related to appearance, religious beliefs, personality traits, education levels, etc. It’s interesting because some people think that they need to control other people’s standards. I think it’s okay to challenge people’s ideas, butread more

Soooo… I’ve been running Google AdSense on my blog for years. I don’t know when I actually started using it, but if I had to guess, definitely 5-6 years ago for sure. I’ve also been part of the YouTube Partner Program for some time, maybe a year or so. And despite being a part of both programs for so long, I haven’t yet even cashed out a single penny. Both programs require you to hitread more

Four the past four days, I’ve managed the wake/get up much earlier than usual. One day, I even woke up at 5AM. Though, I didn’t try to force it. A couple times, I set alarms to remind me that a Zoom call was happening that morning, but I ended up waking before the alarms went off. I’m going to be trying the sleep log/diary from the Sleep Foundation’s websites (found here). I started it midweek,read more

These days when I face resistance, it’s usually from a place of dread. I hardly face fear, and when I do, it’s usually there to protect me from actual harm and danger. Fear doesn’t seem to cripple me as much as dread. If I procrastinate, usually it’s because I don’t enjoy the process or because it doesn’t feel easy (mentally or physically). So then I wondered, what would happen if I consciously decided to doread more

For the month of June, I’m combining a couple of different challenge ideas from CGC (Conscious Growth Club) to do every day. Every day before 3PM, I want to avoid using YouTube, playing PC/phone games, streaming services, movies, shows, TV in general, and social media (mainly Instagram). I have a few exceptions to the challenge, such as watching a video to meditate or exercise or promoting a song on social media. But otherwise, it’s prettyread more
