HOW TO BUILD FROM PINTEREST USING BOARD BOOSTER, VIRAL TAG AND TAIL WIND?


 
HOW TO BUILD FROM PINTEREST USING BOARD BOOSTER, VIRAL TAG AND TAIL WIND?
 
Pinterest is kind of like goggle, they’re not going to tell us the secret, we have to figure out personally. Pinterest likes it when you pin a lot, the more frequently you pin, the more frequently your pin we be seen, it doesn’t like it when you only pin your own stuff, you need variety and also from other websites, but the fact still remains that sharing fifty pins at one time doesn’t hold the same weight as repining a variety of fifty images slowly over a few days. Thus Pinterest can be built through the following features, such as board booster, viral tag, tailwind. etc.

10 WAYS TO TAKE BETTER PHOTOS

Cameras are complicated and it takes time to fully understand them. So don’t try to understand them all at once because you will end up being lost. So here are 10 easy ways to help you take better photos according to Josh, an expert photographer

               This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure for more info. 


1. Learn Manual Mode1
Manual mode is much like using an old film SLR from the 1960’s, when they didn’t have buttons that do it all for you. Being the only option, photographers were forced to learn to use their cameras in manual. In doing so, they fully learnt how their cameras worked.
Priority modes are good for some situations but, once you know how to properly shoot on manual, you’ll find there’s no need for them and you’ll get better results on your own
2. Learn Basic Composition Techniques… and then Forget Them
This one might seem a little funny but let me explain…
Once you’ve learnt basic composition techniques, such as the rule of thirds and the use of lines, you start to look at everything differently and see how you might frame a photo, even when you haven’t got a camera on you.
This knowledge sticks with you and subtly helps your photos improve.
Well then, why forget them?
Simple: as a photographer, this becomes too obvious to be interesting and you’ll become bored of your photos. One of the main challenges of photography is to keep your photos fresh and interesting. You can do this by pushing the boundaries of the ‘rules’ of photography.
3. No On Camera Flash!
I can’t stress this enough: on camera flash (pop-up especially) is incredibly unflattering to your subject and really flattens your image.
When the light comes from the same angle as the lens, you’re left without any of the scene’s natural shadows. Photos with on camera flash may as well have been taken on your phone.
When I first started out, I hated the pop-up flash so much so that I didn’t consider myself a ‘flash’ person. This lasted until a friend talked me into buying an external flash unit; I finally saw what I was missing – buy one now!
4. Find a Fresh Perspective
As a tall person, I always find myself adjusting my height when taking photos of people so that I’m not looking down on them. I try to take this a little further where possible and find new ways of looking at photos.
Instead of mounting the camera on a tripod, why not use the floor or through a crowd?
Keeping a fresh perspective maintains fresh photos!
5. Get Closer
I am my own telephoto lens and you are too!
Instead of zooming in, get involved in the photo; see things from a different angle – this allows for a different perspective. Search for the finer details that would usually be overlooked in a scene and make these the subject if you really want your photos to stand out.
Think before you shoot or you’ll forget to think at all.
6. Clean up your Background
The background is as much a part of your photo as the subject so make sure it’s not cluttered and messy. Moving your camera just a few degrees to the side may make all the difference when it comes to cleaning up your shot.
Think about what’s in your viewfinder or on your screen and ask yourself if each individual element adds anything to the photo? If the answer is “no”, it’s taking away from the photos.
Branches, sky and other people are just a few things to look out for. The branch in the shot below really bugs me.
7. Frame your Subject
Look for a way of putting a frame within a frame, like a doorway or window. In the in the photo below I have used a bluebell flower.
Framing can add context to your photos, telling the viewer a little more about what’s going on and where the photo was taken. Not only does this add a sense of depth but also another element of interest that the photo didn’t have before.
8. Get your White Balance Right!
The WB is all about the colour cast of your photos.
Shooting indoors without a flash often results in the people in your photos appearing to have a nasty orange coloured skin. Mastering WB really sets you apart from other people, most of whom aren’t even aware of the problem, and will dramatically improve your end results.
9. Use the Histogram
LCD displays on digital cameras are getting better these days but are still subject to the environment you’re in.
If you’re out and about on a really sunny day, you’ll find that shading the display with your hand doesn’t do the job when it comes to looking at photos.
The histogram is a mathematical representation of how well exposed an image is; a great basis for improving your photography (don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds).
10. Practice Practice Practice!
Rome wasn’t built in a day; if you want to get good at anything in life, you have to work hard at it – these things don’t come for free.
The fortunate thing about photography is that it’s a lot of fun to play around with and, even though you still think you suck from time to time, with just a little practice, you will always begin to see results in your photos.
Take the steps listed above and read some of the tutorials on this website – you’ll be an expert in no time.

TRUE LOVE

A young boy sits next to his little sister in their bedroom. As she is hiding her face in his arms, he asks himself, what is love? He thought parents were supposed to love each other.

A teenage girl is lying on the bathroom floor. Through the tears she can barely see the razor, let alone the marks on her leg. She shouts to the empty air, what is love? She felt as if she had nobody to show her.
A woman is picking out another long-sleeved shirt to wear at work in July. She does it to hide the bruises that she has to face every day, bringing her to ask, what is love? She is beginning to believe that this is it.
It’s a question that seems to be as old as existence itself. What is love?
Many people spend their entire lives searching for it, turning up hardened hearts and crushed spirits. We expel all of our energy running towards material things such as money, clothes, or cars, hoping to find love in that. Matthew 6:19-21 advises us not to build up material things while we’re living on earth. They are merely temporary. Money runs out, clothes tear, and cars deteriorate. We also run to societal standards like status, beauty, or jobs. We think that maybe, just maybe, I’ll love myself and receive love when I’m this and I have that. Just as verse 21 says, we can’t take those things to Heaven with us. It’s not true love after all, and it shouldn’t be our priority.
Others beg for God to show them. When we fall upon the feet of Jesus, we see that He is love. It’s easy to become used to hearing about what Jesus did, especially during the Easter, as silly as that sounds. But it happens, and when you truly think about it–about the beating, mocking, loneliness, all of it–you see His love and His sacrifice. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Humans are the closest thing you can get to true love. We can love deeply and hard. Oh, how imperfect we are, though. Each one of us sins, makes mistakes, is selfish, the list goes on and on. However, we can look to Jesus, the end-all-be-all epitome of love, and make it a daily endeavor to be like Him.

At the end of the day, this age old question isn’t hard to find after all. All we must do is look to Him for a true love that will persevere. When you are down and out or simply need to be reminded, repeat these three sentences to yourself: Jesus is love. Jesus sacrificed His life for me. Therefore, love equals sacrifice.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR BLOGGERS


The following are tips that you can use to get the best pictures that relate to you blog and can even tell a story at just a glace. Please remember that they require good practice and patience.
             This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure for more info. 

Backgrounds: There is nothing less attractive like taking a photo in an environment or background that messy for a blog that is supported to be professional and. The mess in the photo will just still the beauty that was supported to be captured in the photo. So you should invest in taking your photos in a clean background, like for instance using a white plain cloth or a board. Everything that is around your subject is important so everything has to be clear, clean and match. Forget about taking pictures on the deck or even on your house decorations. You just have to figure out what works best for you and for the photos you want to take.
Props: These will add a little something extra to your photos. Including props and enactment your photos helps to make them more appealing and create a story within your photograph.
Lighting: Putting your subject direct to the sun is the best thing you could do. But if there is no sun then you have to take your photos in a natural light source. You can use the window or an open door to get good lighting. You should also try to play around with the lighting settings of your camera when setting up for photos. The lighting of photos can differ according to the emotion that you want to capture. Remember your subject has to face the lighting source. 
Angles: Nothing is more fun like playing with your angles to get the best pictures. There is no point in taking photos from the same angle. They would just be plain boring because they would not show any sign of creativity. Play around and you may be surprised what you come up with; have fun with your shoots.  
I hope these tips will help you to snap snap snap and capture great moments and good photos for your blog.

10 WAYS TO CREATING AN AMAZING BLOG


1. Remember that they headline of the post is more important than the post itself. Your title has be to enticing so that people can be able to read your posts. If your title is not attractive then no one will look at your blog. The title has to be interesting to a point where people share it on their own social media pages without a doubt. 

           This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure for more info. 

2. The size of the post matters. Avoiding dividing the subject of your blogs into different posts or a series of blogs. You should always have all the information shared in one blog. Don’t keep your audience in suspense for too long. If you have too much information to share then choose what is more important and relevant. And anyways, people don’t like reading long texts and they don’t like have much time. Blogs that go viral are the ones that are very short, straight to the point and easy to read. 
3. Write about something people want to read. If your content is not informative, people will not read, comment or share it. You content has to be consistent, if you are writing about Health, then stick to health topics. 
4. Don’t talk about the same subject more than twice in a row. Where is the creativity in that? If you happen to write the same subject twice, people might like it the first time but the second time they might not like it as much so can you imagine how it would be if you would try for the third time. Give the audience something that will encourage them to come keep coming back for more.
5. Know the next timing to post your blog. We rush to post our blogs as soon as we finish writing them even if it is in the early hours of the morning. But this would not be a great idea or the timing for our target audience. It is best to publish when there is traffic on the internet, around 2pm-5pm GMT from Monday- Thursday. Always schedule your posts so that you don’t miss out.
6. Use styling to increase your readability. Readability is important if you what your post to be read. Design your posts in different ways so that they can be attractive. On one you can have a list with bullet points or numbers than some other time you can just have content without any styling but write your posts more creatively because people don’t like reading long texts.
7. Optimize you posts for search engines. Remember you should always write for the audience and not for Google or other search engines. This way your content will have less meaning. But you can be able to cover both these basis without losing your credibility. You can use the theme of your blog as a tool to rank on Google and to attract more people to your blog. You can also use hash tags and SEO plugins.
8. Link your content in the right way. If you are using extra links for your blog. You need to make sure that those links go hand in hand with the content. You have to let your audience know what you are talking about.
9. Images sell your blog. A picture can say a lot about the message you are trying to get across than content can. So when you choose your images, choose photos that will stand out.
10. Make sure your styling is consistent. You have to use the same styling for your blog, that way your audience can identify with it. Everything about your blog has to be on point all time to keep up with the momentum.

PERFECT MATCH



Woman are made from mans rib therefore there is a perfect match for everyone because God said so
“And the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a companion who will help him.” 
Have you ever felt like if God doesn’t bring you your soulmate then you won’t be able to get married? God does have only one right person for you because without His Grace, there would not be any marriage in the first place. God reigns over all of mankind and all of creation. He even has control over what we do. But he doesn’t control us. He allows us to do what we want and later we will be held responsible for our actions. Yet he still reigns over all things. 
With all that being said, you don’t have to wait for God to hand you a husband. You have to pray for wisdom so that you can be able to choose the perfect partner. Meditate on His work and pray for understanding of His word and His views about marriage and what He designed married to be.  When our prayers for a husband are shaped by God’s words, we can pray confidently knowing that we are praying according to God’s will. It means you can ask God for the ability to discern the relationships His grace bring into your life. 
God knows everything and everyone even our thoughts and who we are supposed to be with. But He won’t hand you over the person you want. Therefore you can dare but according to the laws of the bible. 
“Women were created from the rib of man to be beside him, not from his head to top hi, nor from his feet to be trampled by him, but from under his arm to be protected by him, near to his heart to be loved by him.”  – Matthew Henry, An exposition of the old and new testament.

4 TIPS ON HOW TO GROW YOUR BLOGS AUDIENCE


This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure for more info. 
Being a blogger requires both time and commitment – it’s important to understand that
your audience is not going to grow overnight. Readers tend to follow blogs who add
value to their lives and enrich them with content that is meaningful and relevant. Follow
these 4 tips and watch the traffic on your blog slowly soar to great heights.

Become a Guest Contributor
Think of all the bloggers that you look up to and whose audience you aspire to be reach
– wouldn’t it be great to have them get to know your awesome blog as well? Cultivate a
list of bloggers that you follow (who has a similar audience as you) and reach out to
them about being a possible contributor on their website. Guest contributors can be
very valuable to a blogger, especially when it comes to keeping up with writing
demands. Most blogs are happy to accept high quality and free content for their blog so
make sure you show them your best writing pieces!
Engage your Readers
Engagement will determine whether or not people will become followers or if they’ll
just pass on through. Keep your audience engagement by providing them with
meaningful and relevant content. Ask them questions, but also don’t forget to
acknowledge their answers. A simple, “That’s great to know!” or “That’s awesome =)”
will show that you really do value their time. It’s a simple feel-good gesture that will
surely not go unnoticed by your audience.
Get Social!
The cornerstone of any great blog is having a strong social media presence. This doesn’t
necessarily mean that you will have to sign up for as many social media channels as
possible (think quality and not quantity), just choose what you are most comfortable
with and be sure to keep active.
Keep Organized and Create an Editorial Calendar
A consistent blogging schedule demonstrates to your readers that you are a committed
blogger. If your schedule allows you to post twice a week, make sure you are able to
carry that out with consistency. Erratic posts here and there will make your blog seem
like it’s an abandoned hobby and doesn’t come off as a trusted source for your niche.
