Best Free WordPress Plugins Essential For My Blog (part 1)

When you start a blog or even if you’ve had your blog for awhile, there is a multitude of options for making your blog do things. Trying literally hundreds of WordPress plugins myself over the last period, reading reviews and a lot of lists I’ve narrowed the list down to the very best that work for me: SECURITY AND MAINTENANCE Spam Protection Akismet – Spam comments are a huge problem for WordPress websites.

5 Common writing mistakes on social media

Even after years of learning it in school, grammar is just one of those things people still don’t always get right, myself included. It’s hard. Especially if English is not your native language. Most certain if you take my posts and read them carefully impossible not to find a grammar mistake because usually, you think that whatever words and phrases you are using that sound fine in your head are also correct.  It’s easy for little grammar mistakes to slip by especially when you’re self-editing. But how do you prevent grammatical errors if you’re not even aware you’re making them? I recently discovered…

Is Donald Trump the most hated American president-elect?

  President-elect Donald Trump promises to deport over 3 million illegal immigrants Two months until Donald Trump will officially become the president of the United States and according to his own declaration he’s not intimidated by this fact. More he is willing and eager to work together with the Congress on those exact key points that made people vote for him: ObamaCare, taxes cut and one of the most sensitive problems that fabricate a lot of fear right now, illegal immigrants deportation. I will stop for a second and focus more on the third point: deportation issue. We all watched the news,…

So I’m guessing “Orange Is The New Black” (part 2)

Donald Trump makes a stunning victory over Hillary Clinton The world is a strange place, my friends! Many didn’t take Trump’s candidacy seriously and neither did I. We all made jokes, memes, gifs, youtube videos but those jokes turned on us. This billionaire/reality show star with no government or military experience managed to pull off one of the biggest upsets in American political history by defeating Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House. “I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans. For those who chosen not to support me in…

My Final Thoughts On The U.S. Presidential Election

There are 11 hours left until the first polls are closing and after that, we will eventually find out who won the presidency. For the American people, I don’t necessarily think there will be really a winner at least, not one that will change their life in better and sometimes we forget this, we forget what really matters. It’s not the cancan stories from years ago or what her/his husband/wife did, this is all media bullshit to take your eyes from the real problems. America could have had a great president, someone who could make people forget about the ugliness…

For me, there is nothing more interesting than examining human behavior, even if that behavior is a trait or habit I have myself that isn’t a particularly good one. Being chronically tardy I know it’s a horrible thing and may affect your reputation with the people around you including friends or even your boss but Thank God for researchers.Apparently, you may have a scientific reason why you are always getting late. A study from 2002 published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, determined as a conclusion that there are 2 types of people: Type A people tend to have…

Is technology making us smarter or dumber?

THE BAD It’s possible for two people to perform the same exact search in Google and get two different search results. The answer to this question is without mistake yes.  You noticed how advertisements are directly related to our search history and Google’s search results aren’t any different. Technology narrows our view.  It prevents us from seeing alternative viewpoints. And in my opinion, that makes us a less informed population. In a recent book, Professor Rosen of California State University, Dominguez Hills conducted a study of high school students to determine how technological distractions affected their study habits. He discovered that…

Why to avoid online dating profiles cliches?

A cliche is not necessarily an untrue fact! So what is a cliche? I am referring to certain overused few lines that people who are having a dating profile tend to use to express statements about themselves. These statements are extremely generic, obvious I might say and they appear over and over again in both women and men profiles. I am not suggesting, of course, to lie just to make your profile more interesting and original and yes people go out on a Friday night with friends and enjoys traveling etc. but maybe if you put a little bit of…
