Facebook and Narcissism – Where Do You Fall?


Narcissism can be defined as extreme admiration and love for one self. Facebook users who have plenty of friends, regularly post photos and update their status every hour are downright narcissist. Facebook gives narcissists an ideal platform to get admiration and sense of self-worth through comments, and in turn they become the epitome of attention. Facebook users are grouped into two; the grandiose exhibition type and entitlement/explosiveness type. In the latter (grandiose exhibition type) – the person seeks to become the center of attention. On the other hand, people who exhibit entitlement traits are willing to go to great lengths to seek attention and respect they assume they rightly deserve.

Regular checking your Facebook or Twitter may be a normal routine but now research questions whether people truly find joy in sharing their personal issues with the rest of the world. People in my generation embrace Social technology and use it for narcissism and self-promotion behavior. Constantly networking on Social websites is closely associated with an inflated ego, commonly seen when ‘’attention seekers’’ post lots of pictures at parties with friends to appear cool and fun.

Is Marriage Worth Your Sanity and Happiness?


The divorce rate today is alarming and one contributing factor is the belief that people change when they get married. Simple, they don’t! Marriage is just an institution where you celebrate your deepest love and commitment to your partner in the midst of friends and curious onlookers, with varied opinions on the expected expiry date of your union. I want to share with you a number of reasons why marriage should be the last thing on your mind. Basically, it’s all about having a list of genuine reasons why you should not get married now.

1. The stress is not worth it

How does it feel to have a girlfriend long-term? We all know how stressful dating can be. Now when you decide to get married, you may have to tolerate this stress for the rest of your life. Are you ready to commit your life to depression? That’s absolutely ridiculous, don’t you think?

2. Marriage is expensive

Marriage is very expensive as is divorce. You have to share all expenses with your better half and that means you have to ask for consent before you spend your money. Who wants that? Instead of anticipating a dreadful divorce a few years down the road, why not spend your hard earned cash on a holiday at your favorite destination point. Not only will you have fun but also appreciate the many perks of staying single.

3. You will not amass wealth

Some people end up married for monetary gains. More women today are looking for monetary security. Although there is nothing evil in finding someone who can take care of you, it should never be the basis of gauging your potential mate. Some women often forget the true meaning of love and fail to honor the institution of marriage by marrying for money. You should remember that money is the root cause of all evil. Financial wealth will never substitute love and true companionship. With that said, you should never consider marrying someone because of wealth.

4. Marriage may not guarantee security

Most women have the misconception or idealized fantasy they will have peace of mind and a sense of financial security in marriage, but few actually achieve this. In most cases, this often affects younger women who are in the process of trying to figure out their true self. They may hope and believe that older men will provide security and hence can take care of their every need. This never seems to work and most women end up hurt and resentful. As a woman, you should first get your own sense of security through financial and emotional independence.

Write Your Way To The Bank!


Writing a good article is an art that anyone can perfect with practice. How do you write the best paid SEO article? Do you know how to use keywords sparingly in your article?  Well, as I mentioned on one of my blogs, making money online by writing articles is the best way to supplement your income. However, you should learn the basics of good SEO writing and the importance of writing content that engages your target audience. Here are invaluable $1000 tips to help improve your writing so that you can join me in enjoying the many perks of freelance writing.

1. Research

You need to research carefully before you start to write an article. Who is your target audience? Where can you find great content? I usually research content in blogs where I can find concise and detailed information on any topic. This is a good place to start if you want to write an interesting article with a personal touch.

2. Use an eye catching title

The article should lure readers to your website or blog. It should be more than descriptive to grab the reader’s attention. For example, ‘’How to write a good article’’ is descriptive but ‘’ ‘’Write your way to the bank’’ is a great attention grabber. You can also use numbers to attract more readers. ‘’5 natural ways to lose weight’’ is better than ‘’ Natural ways to lose weight.

3. Simplicity is king

Aim for simplicity and clarity in your article. Try and use simple language as if you are speaking to a child. In other words, avoid excessive use of vocabularies to showcase your prowess of the English language. Can you converse with your friend using excessive vocabularies without making a mockery of yourself?

4. Write short paragraphs

Make sure your paragraphs do not contain more than five sentences. That way, readers can digest the content easily. Writing too many sentences in a paragraph will make it difficult for the reader to understand the content.

5. Use bullet points

An article with bullet points flows smoothly and this helps readers digest the content. Bullet points simply help readers to only extract points they find interesting and leave out the rest. Once you complete the article, proof read it several times or find someone to proof read for you. This will help improve the quality of your content for submission.

I personally believe that writing an article should be informative and entertaining as well. Always ensure you add a personal touch to your content.

Reasons You Should NEVER Think Of Saving Money


Saving money is something new to me. As my friends say, I love to spend and certainly enjoy the good things money can buy, and the idea of thinking how to save money for me is just boring and depressing. Besides that, I cannot stand listening about economic crisis, bank bailouts, saving your last penny and so forth. Money has become the talk of town and people seem not to have anything else to talk about. Thankfully, I always do my best to steer clear from this dreaded topic – saving money. But then again, how does it feel when you do not have extra cash for an emergency? Can you comfortably borrow money from friends and relatives?  If not, then you should read this article several times to fully understand the importance of saving and the joy of having money around when you need it.

1. Avoid petty stress

Saving money each month can help alleviate the stress and anxiety associated to not having money to meet your needs, and any problem faced by those that spend their every penny is completely avoided. You will agree with me that our earning potential decreases as we age hence saving for future luxuries is far important when your physical health clearly dictates employment is now a forgotten term to you. A sizeable saving will allow you to enjoy peace of mind.

2. Boosts your self confidence

Having money around feels great, don’t you think? It acts as a constant reminder that spending is money that you no longer have, and that buying stuff to fill your void is a small step toward a bigger problem. Whether you save for a vacation or new shoes, each time you set some money aside to accomplish your goals is a positive step towards getting it.

3. More income and less dependence on those around you

Having a sizeable saving means you will never nag your family or friends by borrowing money. After all, they also have their share of financial obligations. The point of saving is to encourage independence through personal financial responsibility. The sky should not be your limit when saving money.

4. Invest and earn more

When you decide to save some cash every month and embrace the lifestyle of frugality, an array of choices are available to you. For starters, you can invest in stocks or buy that special gift you have always cherished. As a suggestion, you should do ample research before you invest your hard money in stocks.
