Kindle Publishing: Start Self-Publishing and Get Paid

So, I wrote pretty generally about writing and selling Kindle ebooks through Amazon’s self publishing platform, as a way to make money online while travelling in this post. Today, I want to get more specific into being a Kindle author, and how to go about getting started. Also, I want to talk about whether self-publishing […]

Royal Dutch Shell: A Case Study in Investing During Bust Cycles

The oil market began to tank during the second half of 2014, around the same time that I actually had money to begin investing somewhat seriously. Obviously, I had missed the rock bottom prices of the 2008-09 crash, so finding dirt cheap (based on valuation) stocks to buy wasn’t necessarily an easy proposition. Sure, prices […]

Updating Old Blog Posts for Better SEO Rank

I have several older websites under my belt, that I still do update with new posts on a regular basis. Consistently creating fresh content does seem to be part of the key to cracking the SEO code. When I update regularly, not only do I receive more traffic to my newly minted posts, but also […]

Denver Botanic Gardens: My Favorite City Spot

I think the majority of my motivation for heading to Denver on a short 2.5 day stay, had to do with my plan to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. I booked a tour to be taken in, since I didn’t rent a car, and then promptly didn’t get up in the morning to catch the […]

Do Hashtags Get More Views on IGTV?

As I mentioned in my last post, I am going to be experimenting with Instagram TV, and trying to figure out what it’s all about. I think that I’m kind of in a perfect position to see what works, as my account doesn’t have all that many followers, so I won’t be getting any views […]

Instagram TV (IGTV) for Travel Videos and Vlogging

The clever folks over at Instagram have released a new feature/platform to their app, Instagram TV (IGTV). This is quite a bit different from IG Stories, in that creators can now upload longer videos, but it is still also in its infancy and it’s not exactly clear how the platform will play out. However, I […]

500 Error in Google Search Console for WordPress

One of the websites that I own and have been building for five years now, got absolutely smacked down by Google search. In Google Search Console (Webmasters Tools), I’m told that my web pages pretty much all have a 500 code internal server error. Que?  Imagine: having over 1100 visitors per day on your WordPress […]

The Hawaii Travel Vlog

So, I finally finished editing my first vlog for my YouTube channel. This episode deals with my trip to Hawaii and the exploration of the island of Oahu. As I wrote in my post about how to grow a successful vlog channel, I wanted to pursue this myself, and finally got around to finishing this […]

Waimea Valley Waterfall Walk in Oahu Video

Here is the full walk through video of the park at Waimea Valley in Oahu, Hawaii. The sound file got messed up because the GoPro Karma Grip adapter got damaged and started to vibrate loudly in the footage. So, I just cut the sound, and now it is simply a silent film. Yet, the park […]

Waikiki Beach Walk Around Video

Looking back, I should have walked the entire length of Waikiki Beach, down to the hotel on the far end. However, I had just check into my hotel after 14+ hours of flying and probably wasn’t in my normal waking mind. As such, this video is a walk around the Fort Derussy park area of […]
