Afrojack And Martin Garrix Are Impressive Together!

Lately, I have been shaking my ass to Turn Up The Speakers by Afrojack Martin Garrix.

Those two Dutch DJs and producers teamed up to create an outstanding EDM track (And, it really sounds great).

I can just visualize people on the dance floor dancing along in their unique manner to Turn Up The Speakers.

Also, deep respect to Martin Garrix, Afrojack and the hard-working staff of Spinnin' Records for their constant involvement and contribution in the area of dance music.

Revenge Of The Blogger

Bloggers are those whom you should never piss off; because you can bet your last dollar that they are going to blog about their annoyance.

Bad Customer Service

If you are a businessperson and your company fell short with its customer service, you are doomed; especially if the person who experienced the bad customer service is a blogger.

In a very short space of time, the annoyed blogger is going to upload a post on their blog, letting everyone know the name of the company that gave them horrible customer service.

Police Brutality

If a blogger were to experience police brutality, he or she is going to blog about it.

Regular readers and followers of their blog are going to find out about everything that happened; things like the motive for the police brutality, the police officer's badge number and even the name of the police officer that carried out the brutal attack on them.

High Food Prices

There are many bloggers around the world who volunteer to be the voice of the people; they would let others know via their blogs that the high price of food is unjustified and that everyone should protest or lobby to drive the price of food down.

A Disorderly Neighbour

If a blogger was rudely awakened by a neighbour's loud music, he or she is going to let their readers know about the incident (And, the name of the offender would be all over the world wide web).

An Inferior Product

Bloggers are known to test things out; for example: if they tried out a skin moisturizer and it didn't work, they are going to urge their readers and followers to stay far away from the product that failed to do what the manufacturer said that it was supposed to do.

The Conclusion

Bloggers are always eager to tell it as it is; which is one of the reasons why you would want to be on very good terms with them.

The tricky thing is: a blogger doesn't have a special look, since they are of all ages, of both genders and come from various religious, ethnic, educational and financial backgrounds.

If they experience injustice, displeasure and happen to find out that people are being fooled by some sort of scam, their readers and followers of their blog will be notified via a detailed post.

Blogging With The Right Mindset

With the right kind of mindset, any blogger can turn his or her blog into a virtual paradise (And, it could be on any blog site on the world wide web).

Although it is a thousand times easier to establish one's blog on WordPress, there are those who didn't find success, or a feeling of belonging there.

And, there are a lot of bloggers that were unable to enjoy Google Blogger, because they felt as though they were blogging in vain and that they didn't get the kind of support that they needed; which is why countless bloggers made WordPress their home.

I am proud to admit that I am enjoying both worlds; I have deeply submerged myself in the pleasures of  WordPress and in the joys of Google Blogger.

Once people see that you are truly enjoying yourself (and of course, your blog too), they will begin to take notice; because fun has a magnetic appeal to it.

Are you having lots of fun with your blog? Or, is it more like a chore to you? If it falls within the lines of fun, you are on the right track and if it is a chore for you, I am afraid that you are destined for great disappointment.

Dear friends, it is a fact that those who have fun blogging will stick with their blogs longer than the ones who view blogging as a chore.

When I came back to Google Blogger, I wanted to see first hand if it was worth blogging on and to see if this blog could be as successful as my other blog on WordPress.

I am utterly pleased to admit that I didn't waste any time whatsoever on Google Blogger. I watched my blog grow (and, I believe that it has more blossoming to do).

One thing that baffles me is: that my blog on Google Blogger has been getting more views than my blog over at WordPress (Which is something that I didn't see coming; I wouldn't have been able to predict that, knowing my positive track record on WordPress).

Anyway, I believe that since I made up my mind to have fun, it somehow contributed to the elevation of this blog's success.

Also, I couldn't have done it without you.

I went with the mindset of having fun with this blog of mines and also with the intentions of seeing this blog turn out successful; so far, I have been liking the results.

And, with the right mindset, you can also experience a high level of success with your blog; just remember to transform your blogging process into one where there is lots of fun included in it and I guarantee you that the magic will happen.

Beautiful Red Flower

A red flower amongst a green background of plants.
Recently, I took a photo of this beautiful red flower; which happened to be in the area of: Bon Air Gardens, Arouca.

As usual, I was minding my own business when I encountered this highly photogenic beauty.

When it comes to photographs, flowers tend to be one of the most ideal things to take a snapshot of (And, a lot of people will no doubt, agree with me on this one). Enjoy!

Do People Still Use Google Friend Connect?

I would admit that Google Friend Connect was one of the main methods that bloggers on Google Blogger utilized to follow each other in the past; however most bloggers on Google Blogger use Google+ to follow their fellow bloggers.

I will tell you a secret; I like keeping things simple by using Feedly; I can follow anyone on any blog site with that particular reader.

So Google, you might as well light Google Friend Connect on fire and watch it burn to ashes, because it is archaic and it isn't making any sort of sense having it around; I will reiterate my point by stating that I do not need Google Friend Connect in order to follow my friends on Google Blogger.

Do you use Google Friend Connect? And, do you think that Google should still keep that proverbial dinosaur around?

The Anthem For Plus Size Women

The American singer, Meghan Trainor has been heating up the airwaves with her hit single: All About That Bass.

That song of hers, is all about self-acceptance and rejecting the entertainment industry's ideology about being skinny is perfect.

The truth is: women come in all shapes and sizes; which is why a lot of women and girls can relate to, Meghan Trainor's, All About That Bass.

A Brief Explanation On Coffee's Effect On Us

Caffeine is indeed a drug; which is why coffee helps us to be alert, or gives us that feeling of euphoria.

Caffeine, like any drug can be misused and it has its side effects too.

Here is a video that provides insight as to what happens when we consume coffee.

Blogging On A Rainy Day

To be very straightforward with you, there is no special time for me to blog; once I am awake, I can do it.

However, one of my concerns happens to be the fact that when it rains, there is the chance of a power outage (And, that would mean that I would have to use my Android smartphone to blog and I would rather conserve my smartphone's battery power; for just in case an emergency arises).

Also, some people believe that it is highly dangerous to use a computer when it is raining; their premise being: a person can be electrocuted via their computer when lightening strikes (Thankfully, that has never happened to me).

In the past, I have even blogged in the rain; I was underneath my umbrella typing words at record speed on my smartphone (Which is something that I don't recommend you try, because raindrops that are blown in by the wind can cause water-damage to your smartphone).

A rainy day is like any other day to me (Except for the fact that the temperature is way cooler and is easier for me to endure).

So far, I have blogged on many rainy days and I am happy to admit that I enjoyed them all.

Us And Habits

Habits of Minds
Habits of Minds (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
It is often said, "Man is a creature of habit." And, it is true.

We engage ourselves in our own daily routine; for example, many of us are unable to start the day without coffee (And, if some of us don't get a kick-start with caffeine, the tasks of the day becomes twice as hard, or some of us end up sleeping throughout a large portion of the day).

In regards to myself, if I am unable to blog, I will get all restless or dejected. Why? Because, blogging has become a habit of mine; it is something that I need to do regularly.

Some of our habits will be of a negative nature and other habits of ours will be positive of course.

However, when one thinks of all of this, it would be in our best interest to develop positive habits.

A lot of us have developed the habit of praying in the morning as soon as we arise from slumber and saying a prayer of our choice before meals (All, of which are good habits).

Although we have acquired some habits throughout the years, we are always creating new ones on a daily basis.

So, is your behaviour contributing to good habits or bad ones?

Now, I am not going to preach to you by saying what you should or shouldn't do; but I would strongly advise that you be conscientious of the things that you do; especially if they are being done on a regular basis; because in time, they will blossom into habits.

Psy's "Hangover" Is Hilarious

Photo credit: Facebook
I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me that Psy was one of South Korea's richest music artistes, because things of a comedic nature tend to be popular and sell faster than hot bread.

Lately, I have been getting a good laugh off of his video for Hangover; which features the legendary American rapper, Snoop Dogg.

One thing that I know for sure is: that I am not going to put myself in the painful position of experiencing a darn Hangover.

So, to all the teens and young adults (and, the young at heart too), please stay away from binge drinking!

An Impressive Dance Track From A Husband And Wife Team

Recently, I have been grooving to an EDM track called: Bae; it is from Laidback Luke (Lucas Cornelis van Scheppinghen) featuring Gina Turner (Gina-Marie van Scheppinghen); this track is amazing and it is very rare to find a husband and a wife who are both deejays.

Bae, is no doubt perfect for the clubs; it can be played at home or in the car; as a matter of fact, Bae can be played anywhere.

If you do deejaying for a living, I highly recommend that you add this dance track to your musical arsenal.

Building Relationships Through Blogging

If you have been blogging for quite a while and showing genuine interest in your fellow bloggers, you would have most likely developed some friendships along the way.

After all, blogging is not entirely about us; it is based on the works of everyone within our blogging community.

I am utterly pleased to admit that I have made friends with some wonderful people on both Google Blogger and WordPress.

I enjoy following their blogs, because I am eager to find out what they have posted and it also gives me the chance to watch them grow as bloggers.

Beloved Ones, I want you to know that once you show genuine interest in people, they will do the same for you by showing equal interest in you and in the things that you do; it is the Law of Karma.

Have you built any relationships with any blogger or bloggers since you have started blogging?

The blogosphere shouldn't be a No Man's land; it should be a place where everyone cares about each other and also a place where fellow bloggers are always willing to give each other their support.

One Of My Favourite Songs From Tina Turner

One of my favourite songs from Tina Turner (Anna Mae Bullock) is: The Best.

Believe it or not, The Best was originally recorded by Bonnie Tyler (Gaynor Hopkins) back in 1988.

The following year (1989), Tina Turner put her person touch on it and it became highly successful.

Without further ado, here is the video of Tina Turner singing, The Best. Enjoy!

All Electronics Will Eventually Go Bad

English: Computer/Electronics

Electronic items were not meant to last forever; they eventually stop working at some point in time in the future.

Televisions and radios are some of the electronic items that last the longest; but, they too must pass away.

Computers on the other hand, are a bit tricky where longevity is concerned. Desktop computers can undergo more than their laptop counterpart before they kick the figurative bucket.

It is as though the day you purchased an electronic item, is the day that you would have to make a mental note of the fact that you would need to immediately start saving money to buy a replacement for when that unfortunate time comes.

Is Privacy An Illusion?

In this modern world of ours, some people seem to know a lot about almost everyone.

Also, a large number of us are on social media; the place where we willingly, or advertently give out a lot of information about ourselves.

It is common knowledge that our smartphones and tablets are forever broadcasting our GPS location (This is provided that the location setting is left on).

And, almost everywhere we go, there is CCTV that monitors our movements in real time and not to mention, the facial recognition software that is utilized by law enforcement agencies worldwide.

Hackers can learn a lot about us by going through our medical and financial records, or anything about us; once the information is stored online.

Even certain search engines are known to store and give out valuable information about us to God knows whom for a price (This method is commonly referred to as, data mining).

If we keep going at this rate, I am afraid that future generations may reach at a point, where they would no longer be able to fathom the concept of privacy.

Beautiful Vine And Flowers

Splendid-looking yellow flowers on a vine.
Earlier today, I took this picture of this beautiful vine and flowers (You all probably know by now that I have a penchant for beautiful things).

Besides, I thought that I was way behind my photography for the month of August. Enjoy!

I Am Always Willing To Blog

English: Laptop
English: Laptop (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
When I got out of my bed earlier today, I felt out of sorts; I was a little under the weather; however, that sort of thing doesn't prevent me from writing; I can do it when I am feeling sick, feeling well or feeling in between.

As a matter of fact, anytime is a good time to write for me (And, the truth is: I am always writing. I may not post everything that I write, but I always have an article that is ready to launch whenever I go online).

The bad part is: my computer is not half as willing as myself when it comes to posting;  since it has been a bit problematic these days.

Anyway, can you write under any type of condition? And, are you always willing to blog like myself?

From a psychological perspective, when something is ingrained in your psyche, it becomes easy to do under any circumstance.
