Becoming a Blogger/Influencer and Get Paid: What You Need to Know

Categories: Lifestyle, , Leave a comment

A lot of you are asking me about how I became a Blogger/Influencer/Content Creator and how to become one. Another interesting question is how to start a Blog and how to earn from it. Is it worth it and can you really choose this over a corporate job? I’m so excited to share this topic with you today so sit back, relax and read until the end of this post.

I’ve been blogging for more than ten years now. I get to write and share things about fashion, beauty, lifestyle, trending stuff online, how to’s, business topics and a lot more! I did not know that it will change my life, I can work anywhere and anytime I want. Yes, there are ups and downs but writing and sharing interesting ideas are my passion so I enjoy every part of this journey. Starting a blog was one of my best decision I made.

I started writing about my daily life, no intention of making money out of it or have a huge following. I just upload things that I like; makeup, recent buy clothes, cute items that I found online, nice places that I discovered, delicious foods that I eat, latest news, beauty tips and so on and so forth. I shared these blog posts to an all girls forum and from there I met and found new online friends who also share about the things they are passionate about. Some shares food recipes, some are writing about how to do makeup, nail arts, different hairstyles, some are showing their school achievements, life values etc. Everyday, we visit and update each other by reading our blogs, we built connection and learn from each other as well, I’m happy and so excited everytime I read new blogs, commented on their posts discovering new stuff and learn new things from Influencers that I look up to.

Blogging has been my creative outlet to share my stories. It was a great way to connect with people I never thought possible. Fast forward today, Blogging and sharing contents online has evolved with the rise of social media. When content creators share their passion, viewers/audience can benefit from it. They can learn from the how to’s, be inspire with the posts and look forward to your next posts.

These people who has the same interest will start to like and follow you. When you share quality contents, different local and international brands (small or big) will start to recognize you and contact you to work with them. Brands prefer to work with Bloggers/ Content Creators, Influencers because it has personal touch. Content creators have an extraordinary skills when it comes to this kind of ‘work’. It is not an easy job; we do everything – the photography/videography, editing, thinking of great ideas to post in our different platforms that could help our market. We just don’t post, we make sure that it is the best and we only share honest opinions and values.

What we, content creators always share is something people can relate to. We are happy everytime we receive comments like ‘what you share helped me a lot!’, ‘you’re my inspiration to pursue my dream’, etc. These are some of the reasons why we continue doing what we do. I also thought of investing in my blog because audience is growing and it is priceless when you know you can help people while you’re doing what you love to do.

All about Portable Hose Reel

How Are Hose Reels Rated?
When searching for a new garden hose reel online, you’ll be met with a huge array of gardening and yard care websites offering their take on what they find the best reels are. With so many lists out there, it can be overwhelming to determine which water hose reel is truly the “best.” There are a few factors that most every “best” list mentions. These include longevity, capacity, weight, and durability. Each of these will play a significant role in your final decision for a new garden hose reel. Here’s why they matter and how they’ll help you find the best hose reel for your home.


Reel Longevity
This is one of the most important factors to take into consideration. Hose reels aren’t something you plan to replace every few years, so it’s important to choose an option that is designed with high-quality materials. Plastic hose reels can become brittle and crack or fade with sun exposure. They’re easier to damage, too, which could be a concern if you plan to use your reel relatively often. Research the materials and the coating a reel has, even down to the hardware used to assemble it. It’s even better to shop hose reels with warranties for leaking and rusting, so your purchase is protected should something happen.


Reel Capacity
What size garden hose can the hose reel hold without needing to elaborately wrap the hose around the reel? Many homeowners require longer than standard hoses to reach the far ends of their backyards. If you purchase a relatively long garden hose and a typical reel, chances are the hose will not fit onto the drum of the reel. Ensure that whichever length of hose you choose, the hose reel can neatly accommodate its length.


Reel Weight
How much does the hose reel weigh? This is a factor many “best” lists mention. While it’s not very relevant for wall-mounted reels, it becomes important for free-standing and portable reel types. If these types of hose reels are heavy, it defeats the purpose just a bit! You want free-standing and portable reels to feel relatively lightweight so you can move them as needed. This is especially true for portable cart style reels, as you don’t want to be caught forcing it to move as you go from one end of your backyard to the other.


Reel Durability
Like the above for longevity, durability is an incredibly important factor. If you’re a serious gardener or use your hose reel for other weekend to-dos, the quality of your hose reel is key to getting your money’s worth. You don’t want to choose a hose reel that will bend or become damaged over time with frequent use. Consider the types of yardwork and other tasks you anticipate doing with your hose and reel. Will you be dragging the reel through your yard, gravel, and dirt regularly? Or will you mostly keep your reel stationary and only use it for a few patio plants? Questions like these will help you determine whether a plastic or metal reel is right for your needs.

Their free-standing and portable water hose reels are lightweight too, so you can easily carry them wherever necessary. Have a need for a lengthier hose? Not a problem. Eley offers an Extra-Capacity kit that widens the drum of the reel to fit more hose. One very unique aspect of their reels is that they’re drinking-safe, so should you or the kids wish to take a sip from the hose (provided you also have an Eley garden hose!), then you can trust that the water is 100% safe to drink. When it comes to forward-thinking, Eley goes above and beyond with their line of garden hose reels and other watering tools. While pricier than other options, the incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none. When you choose Eley for your first or replacement hose reel, you’ll never go back to another brand!

Zoom Teeth Whitening: What To Expect On Your Dental Visit

There are many effective cosmetic dental treatments available today and one of the most popular is Zoom teeth whitening, which involves the dentist applying a hydrogen peroxide solution to the tooth enamel using a special device. The treatment typically can make your teeth a few shades whiter. With that in mind, here are some details about the procedure of having Zoom teeth whitening treatment.

Initial Consultation

When you approach a cosmetic dental clinic about teeth whitening, the dentist would first carry out a thorough oral examination, noting any minor issues, then they would talk to you about your expectations. Only then can the dentist make a recommendation as to which treatment will offer the best results.

Deep Cleaning

Your dentist would recommend that you allow their resident hygienist to deep clean your teeth prior to having the Zoom teeth whitening treatment. The previous day is ideal, and this removes plaque that would hinder the bleaching process, giving optimum results, then you are ready for the Zoom teeth whitening treatment.

The Zoom Treatment

The treatment takes about one hour and begins with the dentist applying covering on your lips and gums, which leaves the teeth exposed. The specialist then applies a hydrogen peroxide solution to the tooth enamel, then the Zoom light is directed onto the tooth enamel, which stimulates the hydrogen peroxide solution, making it more effective. This process takes about 15 mins and there would likely be a video screen for you to watch while the solution reacts with the tooth enamel.

Three Cycles

Typically, the dentist would repeat the gel and light process a further two-15-minute periods, making 45 minutes in total, which gives the best results. It is worth noting that the goal is not to make your teeth as white as possible, rather to choose a shade that suits you. Of course, some people are better candidates than others and the dentist would judge each case by its merits, using a treatment that promises the desired results.

Treatment Aftercare

The clinic would furnish you with a list of instructions and guidelines for post-treatment care, which would include the abstinence of certain food and drinks that are known to stain the teeth. In the event you smoke, the dentist would be quite clear about quitting the habit. If you really must have a daily dose of nicotine, chewing the gum is better for your teeth and your lungs.
