Lessons learned about Facebook Ads as a beginner

This quarantine made me come up with some new ideas and taught me how to make money online. I discovered a few ways and one of them was drop shipping, but I won't go in depth about this business model here. I will just say that I decided to sell jewelry.

The favorite part of online business for me is building a brand and advertising products. This is how I found out about Facebook Ads.

Facebook Ads turned out to be frustrating at the beginning, but as time went by, I became familiar with it and understood how game-changing this…


Thanks, you stupid ugly irritating virus.

Wow. It’s been a year. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was a normal Monday, we had a lot of exams at school. But suddenly, one after another, people were testing positive for a virus that we all, eventually, had to deal with for a long time. People were chattering in the hallways and news spread that we will go on our holidays week earlier than usual.

When I heard that we will be free for a month, I was over the moon. I could do so many things, binge TV-shows, play all the games I ever…


Take an alternative look at your progress.

Every field has competition. You aren’t the only one who wants to become a successful filmmaker, writer, or businessman. Rivals are everywhere and there is only one way you can get rid of them- by facing difficulties. We always want to get to our end goal as soon as possible, but it’s never the case. If there is an obstacle on our way, we tend to think about the time it will stop. But I think that we should mindfully go through every difficulty.

When you stumble across some hard problem, it’s better to look at this from the bright…


Why it’s stupid to focus on Quality

No matter what field you are in, you probably heard the debate. Should you focus on quality on quantity? Everyone wants to take the most optimal route when starting a hobby or a career. I have been figuring this out for a long time and I think that I have an answer.

When you start doing anything, you don’t really know what’s going on. You are learning by making mistakes. It means that you should make as many mistakes as possible. It’s only possible if you do a lot of work. When you are a beginner, you can’t concentrate on…


How the algorithm shapes your life

Several centuries ago we had a scarcity of information, but now there is too much of it. The modern world is full of content. Because of this, we can often encounter disinformation or just useless crap. Our brains form thoughts based on what we saw, heard, or read. Information basically forms our life and some of us are not aware of it. “We are what we eat” is now entirely applicable to information around us. Here I will go into this topic to understand the modern flow of information and how it forms our lives.

Our Brains Can Be Fooled Easily


What I would tell to a beginner self | My lessons

It’s been 7 months since I started doing this whole writing thing. But I didn’t become a full-time writer and I didn’t achieve any significant milestones. Why would people do it for so long?

Money? No.

Fame? Definitely not.

Maybe it’s easy? Hell no.

I don’t know. What I do know is if I do it for long enough I will be able to reach some kind of success. And I genuinely love some aspects of writing. I still can’t call myself a writer without experiencing the impostor syndrome. But I can give advice to writers who had less experience…

Twitter just announced their newest feature — Super Follows. This is a subscription that lets you see creators’ exclusive tweets along with some perks like a supporter badge, newsletter, discounts, and community access. This ignited a big controversy in the Twitter community. Here I will try to dive deeper and see where this new feature might lead us.

Social media’s main revenue source is always advertising. But Twitter doesn’t show many ads, which makes the revenue significantly lower compared to others. For example, Instagram shows ads every several stories and posts, while Twitter has way fewer ads, showing one tweet-ad…


How to write according to science

I’ve been writing for six months now and have learned a lot of new things along the way. There are tons of tips on writing everywhere, but I didn’t see many science-based ones. Our brains are amazing, with all of our advancements in technology, we still don’t know everything about them. However, we can use already existing studies to make our brains work for us. Here I wanted to share the tips you can use as a writer to maximize your productivity.

The science

Our brain has three thinking networks or modes. Default network, the Executive Control Network, and the Salience Network…


And why you are a merciless idea thief

It was the first sunny, relaxing day of the year. I decided to leave my plans unfinished, put my favorite jacket on, and went out for a walk with my friend. The weather was perfect and calm, my quarantine-grown hair was fluttering on a slight wind. We were having a conversation about filmmakers borrowing ideas from each other, as we were crossing the river on a sky-blue bridge. Our discussion eventually led to a question: “What is creativity?”.

Creativity can be different. You can use it in various fields, from music and filmmaking to cooking and science. We can use…


Am I living a dream? My tips, earnings, insights, and stats

Photo by Neel on Unsplash

Exactly 6 months ago I discovered a platform that changed my life, I was excited to try it. So I came up with a lot of ideas and started writing articles. I never thought that I would like to publish anything online. I thought that my life is boring to share, I can’t write engaging stories, and I am too shy to put anything on the internet anyway. But I just sat down and started writing to see what happens. The third article I ever wrote was curated and is still read by people, I was off for a good…
