How To Publish Your Work Online

How To Publish Your Work Online

In this age of the internet and social media, you can hardly find someone who doesn’t own a social media account or a blog or website. The internet is by far the best way to display your work for free or for a very small investment.

If you are a photographer, writer, painter or musician, and you do not have enough funds to get your work published or distributed through the traditional channels, then online publishing is a very effective way to let the world see what you have got!

Journalists or people who want to be journalists can also set up a YouTube channel or a blog. These are not just good ways to get recognition for your work, they can also earn you a decent amount of money.

What should I do to get my work online?

Well, it is not actually that hard. Of course, you should be able to operate a computer and should have basic knowledge about the internet. Once you have the basic skills, first, decide whether you want to have a blog or a website with your own domain name.

You can set up a blog for free on many platforms, but if you want to have a proper website where you can post images, videos and blog posts then you need to follow these steps:

  • First of all, decide upon what kind of website you want, its name, and the space you require. Consult some web hosting companies and do your research thoroughly, because you will be stuck with whichever hosting package you decide to purchase for at least one year.
  • After selecting your hosting company, you need to purchase a domain name. You will also need to check online to make sure no one else is using that domain name. There are a lot of websites where you can just enter the name you want with the extension of .com or .net and quickly find out whether anyone else has that domain or not. Note that you cannot have a domain name which is already registered to someone else.
  • After purchasing hosting and registering a domain name, you need to choose a theme template for your website. You can either purchase it or you can download free themes, such as WordPress free themes. The free ones are obviously generic and less personalized. However, to get a personalized and unique template for your website, you need to pay a price.
  • After getting the template, upload it to your domain, and start editing it as per your requirements according to the instructions that come with it. You will need to add your banners, images, logo and content. You can do this yourself or hire someone to help you out.

When you are done with the website and it is fully functional, all you need to do is market it, or in simpler terms, make it famous.

How can I make my website or blog famous?

Well, it is not that difficult nowadays, since there are so many social media platforms you can use. You can make a Facebook page, a Twitter account, an Instagram account, etc., and keep sharing the link to your website or blog among your friends and even publicly. You can even sponsor your website on these platforms.

You can even consult the many social media marketing experts available about how you can get footfall or traffic to your blog or site.

In recent times, we have seen many people get famous using this medium. They have been able to raise or earn money to support their talents, art, education, or startup businesses using these methods. You can now get your work recognized in an easier and cheaper way than ever before, and that too from the comfort of your own home.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
