Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it’s lethal”. The best thing you can do for yourself is travel. Exploring new cities, meeting new people and trying new things doesn’t just get you out of the house and experiencing everything this world has to offer, it also energizes your mind, body, and soul and teaches you about different people and cultures. Travel is the best learning experience you can get but it doesn’t always come so easily with jobs to do and of course, the lack of funds. Today’s post, by Guest Alex S., is sharing a few budget-savvy tips on how Continue reading “Ideas for Travelling When You’re Flat Broke”

Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: I’ve said this many times on my blog: as a blogger, there is so much more to it than just putting up some texts paired with pretty pictures. Just because you find a quote that speaks to you or a picture that pairs perfectly with your post, doesn’t mean it is free to use as you wish. Those words and those images belong to someone and unless specified that it can be freely used, you need to appropriately credit the owner if you use their work on your blog. If you don’t, you could find yourself in a world of trouble. Today’s guest post by regular contributor, Maurine Anderson, is breaking down intellectual property and copyright so you know the rules and can apply them to Continue reading “A Blogger’s Guide to Intellectual Property & Copyright”
Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: At one point in our life, we fall into a rut. We never mean to get there; it kinda just happens. While having a routine can help keep you organized and structured, it also is one of the first things that traps you in the same old thing, day in and day out. A lot of times, once we’ve found ourselves in a rut, we’re not quite sure how to get out. Today’s post, by guest blogger Kelly Walsh from essaychip, is sharing with us that one thing we need to help us make a change in our lives.
Okay. I get it. Nothing ever seems right. I mean, you keep on doing your best. You do your best at the office. You do your best getting along with people you’re not very close with. You do your best to be a good son or daughter. The list goes on.
To be really honest, you actually have no idea why everything in your life seems wrong. As far as you know, you’ve doing what you think is right. Yet, nothing good seems to come out of it.
These sort of things keeps on going on and on in your head, even when you know the answer to your musings. You know that you’re not really the reason these things are happening. I mean, you’re not the only one living on this vast planet. Even if you try to do everything right, things can still go wrong because other creatures affect your life too.
But even if you keep that thought in your head all the time, it will do nothing to cheer you up. It doesn’t change the fact that you’re beating yourself off trying to make things right, but things just never go right.
You want to change the way you live. You want to wake up someday and just laugh at this matter, but you just can’t.
You’ve already read all the life-improvement books you can possibly read. They’re not working. It’s either that or you’re just not following their advice right.
Look, it’s not you. The real reason why your life is like this is because you have no outlet. The truth is you’re not alone. We all go through these sorts of things. You’re not the only one who thinks that nothing in his life is going right. Everyone does it. The only difference is other people know how to go with it. The answer all lies in an outlet. You need something that can help you let all your frustrations out.
Here’s another truth you probably hear every time, but just never took the time to think about: life is unfair. That’s that. You have to deal with that fact. You should know how to move on when things don’t go exactly as you planned.
What does an outlet have anything to do with my life?
Well, that’s a pretty good question.
I mean, if you want to change your life, then there’s your answer. You need to change, but it’s not that simple.
You might be thinking of that big change, but unless you completely throw your grudges and negative experiences in the trash bin, it’ll keep on haunting you, and then you’ll never be able to reach the finish line of the “change” race.
Do you know what you really need?
No, you don’t need another one of those best-selling life-improvement books. What you need is a blog. It’s just perfect. How come? Well, read on to find out.
- There’s no right or wrong way of doing it
You don’t have to worry about making mistakes. You don’t have to worry about anything else going wrong.
Isn’t that what brought you in this state in the first place? The fear of losing? The fear of failure? The fear of criticism?
It’s good to know that when everything in your life fails, there is someplace you can go where you don’t have to ever worry about messing up, and that’s online, on your blog.
You can write about your life in any way you want. You can say anything you want. Once you let it all out changing your life will come easy.
- You’ll be connected with the right kind of people
We don’t get to choose the people we are surrounded with. Sometimes we do, but most of the time it’s the opposite.
I mean, we have the freedom to choose the kind of friends we have, but having a specific group of friends doesn’t mean that other people can’t affect us. Their decision matters in our lives.
We live on one planet. Whatever they do we’ll all be affected at some point. When things go bad, we can feel like we have no one to turn to, especially if we’re surrounded by people who don’t share the same views, but through a blog, you’ll be able to meet and befriend people who share the same values as you.
Thanks for such an insightful post, Kelly!

A Message from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee:
Today, I get to take a break from blogging & let someone else take over and share some advice with you. Earlier this month, I featured my interview with fellow blogger, Bronwin Goodbar from _allkindsofme_ (if you missed it, check it out here).
