Blog Income Report 2019 – Up, Up, And Away!

Simple and short post this time but before I start, the historical entries can be found here : Blog Income 2015 Blog Income 2016 Blog Income 2017 Blog Income 2018 The reason that I said it will be simple and short is because it is largely similar to what I have written in my 2018 report. Spent the year concentrating on work and increasing income. This meant that when it came to side-hustle like my blog, which is really an expensive (but profitable) hobby, what I have done hasn’t really changed. Instead, I’m really trying to achieve more by doing less.

C-ries : Free Netflix From Crypto.com (005)

If this post title sounds familiar, this is a follow-up post to : C-ries : Free Spotify From Crypto.com (003) To be clear about my stand that I mentioned previously, the other (non-Ruby Steel) tiers weren’t the most attractive me – I still believe that to be true, if I was investing with cold hard...

Living In A Parallel Universe

Below is a tweet that I posted quite a while back. In case you’re wondering, Twitter is where I share a lot more random stuff and thoughts that don’t quite belong anywhere.
