Why Many Are Giving Up Blogging?

King 5The significant aim of every blogger, especially writers, is to win the heart of readers to visit their blogs. This the way to tell your visitors what you do. After all the hard work, at the end of the day, only between ten to twenty readers visit the writer’s blog. This is very frustrating indeed.

There are hundreds of articles online, giving instructions on how to attract more traffic to your site. Like many others, I have  tried a lot of them without success.

Sometimes, you might feel that your articles are boring or not inspiring, but that’s not the problem. The reason many readers aren’t visiting your blog is: You are posting an article which has already been written by hundreds of writers. Who is interested to read an article written by hundreds of writers over the same subject?

A successful blog has nothing to do with the number of your followers. You can get over million followers, yet still your blog can’t be progressing or successful, because of lack of readers. For example, it is better for any blogger to get at least between 50 – 100 readers per day, than having thousands of followers.

How many of your followers have the time to read what you write? This is the question you need to take into consideration when blogging, in order to create irresistible articles to draw readers’ attention.

Before writing any article ‘Google’ the subject and find out first how many articles are online over the same subject. If there are hundreds of similar articles online, please don’t waste your time to write or post it, but if you still want to write that particular subject, then let it be entirely different from previous published articles.

Investigative articles  are very interesting, always attracting readers, but if you are scared to publish an article over someone, organisation etc; you will never be successful as a blogger, unless you are writing for fun. Fear is a psychological disease that holds success, thus; you’re preventing your success.

I publish articles the media or bloggers dare to publish. Because that’s what many readers want to read. They want something, different, truthful, scandalous and interesting. This is the secret leading to the success of my blog, without enough followers and without paying a cent for any promotion.

If you are an effective and experienced blogger, you can see that traffic on Saturdays and Sundays is very low, yet good articles can easily increase the rate of traffic significantly on both Saturdays and Sundays. You may not know the impact of your articles on society, so never quit. Write interesting articles to be in the race.

Poverty Is A Tool Used To Sustain Crime

 

Poverty is a tool used to sustain crime

What’s this little boy thinking about this European? Are they coming to give us another disease after Aids and Ebola?

“Tell me the truth, I hope you are not bringing in any new disease, after Aids, Ebola and Lassa Fever.”

Not everyone is interested in lies, hypocrisy and crime, the reason my blog has been one of the successful blogs, attracting readers worldwide from over 185 countries.

With the Dutch Micro-Surgeon and scientist, Johan Van Dongen, we shall continue to profit from the weakness and incompetence of the foreign media, (Europe and America) to give the general public hungry for the truth over Aids and Ebola.

We are putting on the Armour of truth, just like last year, without changing our identities and style of writing. Those so-called super powers, World Health Organization and Center for Diseases Control, fighting hard to cover up those medical crimes in Africa, should bow their heads in shame and ask God for forgiveness, if African leaders are weak, scared and failed to deal with the issue.

There are so many organizations worldwide, fighting to alleviate poverty. Poverty stricken countries appreciate their efforts and will continue to give them every necessary support they deserve, yet it needs to be said, that effort is like going to the river side with a basket to fetch some water. It’s a total waste of time and energy.

Poverty alleviation is a dream of illusion. It’s only a poor man’s hope. The so-called super powers wouldn’t let it happen. How can the corrupt Europe and America pharmaceutical companies profit from man-made diseases plagued on Africans to sustain their economies?

If Africa becomes like any of those advanced continents, where would America and Europe turn to, when ready to find people to use as Guinea pigs, to test those manufactured contaminated and diseased drugs?

In the eighties, some people, including famous celebrities were diagnosed with HIV. Many are still living today, while millions of HIV patients from 1980 have perished and continue perishing. This is enough evidence that the drugs sent to Africa for HIV/AIDS patients are either fake or contaminated to increase the plight of Africans.

Another evidence is that the corrupt Europe and America pharmaceutical companies established this plan to make a profit out of Africa’s misery. It will be recalled that last year Micro-Surgeon Johan Van Dongen published an article entitled

“Any African HIV Patient That Swallows AZT Tablet, Is A Lunatic” as a warning to African leaders. Reference: https://goo.gl/qXE2SC

Both the European and American governments are secretly at war with anyone who tries to ruin the profit-oriented pharmaceutical companies since it’s the lifeblood sustaining the economies. This is the reason Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was killed, just some few days after publishing a research based on the claim that vaccines caused autism.

Just like always, the European and American media covered up the crime relating to his death and published that he was found in an apparent suicide, and died of what seems to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his chest when there wasn’t evidence that Dr. Bradstreet had any suicidal tendencies.

Following the mysterious death of Dr. Bradstreet, Micro-Surgeon Dongen published this article:

The corrupt pharmaceutical companies

Dr. Jeff Bradstreet was murdered for opposing autism-vaccine because the corrupt pharmaceutical companies consider him a threat to ruin business

Donald Trump: Why Aren’t You Killed Like Jeffrey Bradstreet Or Other Opponents Of Vaccinations Which Not Only Cause Autism But Also Aids And Ebola? https://goo.gl/v6WRFN

Living in such a world that cares about money than the welfare and health of people is very dangerous. Poverty is indeed a tool used to sustain crime. Some of the police and judges are paid from crime and cheap labor rendered to the government institutions, from criminals thrown into jail. Do you expect this to end poverty? Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Humour: The Man With A Sad Face

sad-8

The man with a sad face

Sometimes before a baby is born, his or her parents had already suggested suitable names for the child. Names are influenced by our popular culture, tradition and heroes. Many people bear Biblical names, others not. As a Ghanaian from the Fantse tribe, my traditional name is Ato or Kwamena, because I was born on Saturday.

Names mean a lot but it’s not everyone who knows someone’s name. That’s the reason we often hear “Please what’s your name?” You may know someone because you’ve seen the person a couple of times, but may not know his or her name. I am one of them. In the neighbourhood where I grew up in Africa, few knew me but don’t know my name.

One day someone I know came looking for me in the neighbourhood where I lived. That was his first attempt to visit me. He mentioned my name, yet no one could help him. One Good Samaritan tried his best to help him. “Can you please describe the man you are looking for,” he asked the stranger. “He is a man with dark complexion, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, whose face looks like someone crying.”

“May be I know him, because there is a man who lives close to the beach, whose face really looks like someone crying, maybe it’s him,” said the Good Samaritan.

“Can we go to see if he is the one,” said the stranger. I was at home when I heard a knock on the door, as soon as I opened, stands Ben, my cousin who lives in the Western Region of Ghana. He narrates the funny description which led to my discovery.

“What, do my face looks like someone crying?” I asked.

“If your face doesn’t look like someone crying, how can this Good Samaritan realize that to come home with me? Ben asked.

This is not a matter of anger but laughter. I laughed so hard that my stomach ached, the fact that Ben has never told me this before. After Ben’s visit, I thought about this for a very long time and decided to get rid of this funny and humourous description about me.

By then I’ve heard of the book called ‘The Power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Pearle. I contacted a friend who had more books than me and borrowed Norman’s book from him. It was a very thick book but inspiring. “Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” – Norman Vincent Pearle.

I did really enjoyed reading this interesting book. In fact, I have no words to describe how the book miraculously transformed my life, to get rid of that hidden facial expression which I have lived with for years without my knowledge. Well, it may be that my face still looks like someone crying, because of too much trouble in this world.

Call Me Now Grandpa Joel Savage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My first grandchild: Anthony Savage

As a father, I realized very early that it is not only getting the best job, house, car etc; makes one happy or successful in life, but to get married and settle. Many acknowledge marriage as a form of trap, unity without comfort or freedom. I don’t see it that way. I see marriage as a bond of life-long commitment and sharing responsibilities, which enhance the success of both partners.

I know perfectly well what my wife has done for me in times of difficulty, uncertainty and when sick. Like Florence Nightingale, she takes care of me and does what I haven’t even requested her to do. I have really enjoyed a happy successful marriage over two decades, because both respect and trust ourselves.

Thus; when my elder son said to me “Daddy I will be getting married soon, I was engulfed with joy, knowing that he has made a good decision, a decision which will keep him sincere, upright and responsible. I witnessed the day of their wedding with emotions, happiness and tears of joy. The two were joined as man and wife, as they exchanged vows and kissed each other.

Jesse. 2

My elder son and wife.

However, my life changed dramatically six weeks ago, when my first grandchild was delivered. I am very happy indeed. I give thanks and praises to God, who makes things possible.  I wish my son and his wife a happy successful marriage. My advice to them is to respect, love and trust each other and to solve every problem they faced amicably. That’s the essence and qualities that lead to a successful marriage.

10 Reasons Never Wish To Be A Celebrity

winona 3

Actress Winona Ryder, stole over $5,000 worth of designer clothing and accessories at the Beverly Hills Saks Fifth Avenue in 2001, despite all the fame and ‘success.’

Here comes a celebrity in glamorous dress, she wants to fly, yet she has no wings. The hungry paparazzi follow them where ever they go. Their names make the headlines in newspapers and faces appear on the television every time. That’s great isn’t it? And you wished to be one of them isn’t is? You can only taste a food before discovering how delicious or sour it tastes, because aroma or sweet scent can be deceiving.

Life is tough, so everyone wants to be successful, thus; many wish to be someone. Be careful what you wish for. If you haven’t been to someone’s farm before, you may think your farm is the biggest. No matter the weight of the problem, when hear someone’story, you’ll know that your problem is just as small as an ant or the tip of the iceberg.

Be content with what you have. Don’t be deceived. Who feels it knows it. Many smile behind suffering and live above their means, but your comfort, success and happiness, lie in your own hands. Below are ten reasons never wish to be a celebrity.

  1. Due to the thirst for fame and the desire to do something no other celebrity has done, they end up putting on degrading clothes they called it modern fashion.
  2. Many abuse the precious dignity of women by attending functions without underwear and they called it “Women Empowerment.”
  3. Many live beyond their means, buying expensive jewels, cars, houses etc; then later cry at home when running financially dry. Those in that situation often end up in shoplifting scandals.
  4. Most celebrities live in debt. The result is restlessness and lack of sleep.
  5. Many can’t handle fame, thus; they end up as drug addicts and alcoholics and often against the law.
  6. Some celebrities end up at rehabilitation centers, hospital and many commit suicide.
  7. Some date so many men and women to the extent that, by the time they are serious to settle and get married, nobody wants them, because they have misused their bodies.
  8. When many are bored, they take naked pictures of themselves and post it on social platforms.
  9. The fear of lacking behind in something or being forgotten by fans haunts them; therefore many do stupid things to attract media attention.
  10. Only few celebrities acknowledge God’s presence, as the omnipotent and depend on the gospel for salvation. Because of fame and pride many think God don’t exist and everything he or she owns comes from their effort.

There is nothing better than aiming high, following your dreams to be successful in whatever you want to achieve, but when pursuing that career, create a good name and inspire other people to follow you, because after your departure from this world, the seed you’ve sown, is what people would talk about. Would that seed be good or a bad one?

God Of Elijah, God Of Elisha, But Where Is the God Of Gehazi?: How Greed Prevented Gehazi To Get Elisha’s Blessing.

Prophets 2

Elijah and Elisha are two of the most well-known prophets of Israel. They both served in the northern kingdom of Israel. Elijah is first introduced in 1 Kings: 17, as the prophet who predicted a three-year drought in the land. After being miraculously fed by ravens, he later stayed with a widow and her son, and that family experienced God’s supernatural provision of food.

After Elijah’s defeat of the prophets of Baal when he called down fire from heaven, the drought ended. Rain fell and Elijah fled from Ahab’s wife, the evil queen Jezebel, who had vowed to kill him (1 Kings 19). Reaching Mount Horeb, Elijah heard the voice of God tell him to anoint two kings as well as Elisha as a prophet. He did this, and Elisha immediately joined him.

Elijah later condemned King Ahab for murder and the theft of a vineyard and predicted Ahab’s death and that of his wife, Jezebel. In 2 Kings 2, Elijah called down fire from heaven to destroy two groups of 50 men sent from King Ahaziah. A third group of men was led by a captain who begged for mercy and was spared judgment. Elijah went to Ahaziah and proclaimed the king would die from his sickness, a prophecy that was soon fulfilled.

Elijah and Elisha crossed the Jordan River on dry land, and Elisha, knowing that Elijah would not be with him much longer, asked to be blessed with a double portion of Elijah’s spirit. Elijah was taken directly into heaven by a chariot of fire. Elisha picked up Elijah’s mantle and used it to cross the Jordan again on dry land.

He received the double portion he had asked for and performed many miracles in Israel. Some of Elisha’s miracles were the turning of bad water into clean water, causing a widow’s oil to fill many jars, and even raising a boy from the dead.

Before he was taken to heaven, Elijah left a letter for King Jehoram of Judah that spoke of judgment against him. It stated, in part, “The LORD will bring a great plague on your people, your children, your wives, and all your possessions, and you yourself will have a severe sickness with a disease of your bowels, until your bowels come out because of the disease, day by day” (2 Chronicles 21:14–15). The prophecy soon came true (verses 18–20).

Elijah and Elisha were both greatly respected by those in the “school of prophets”  as well as by the kings of their nation. Their impact led to revival among some of the Israelites during a dark stage of its history. During the wicked reigns of Ahab and Ahaziah, God had His men leading the charge for righteousness.

Elijah and Elisha’s combined legacy continued to influence Israel for some time. Even the New Testament speaks of the expected return of Elijah, a role fulfilled by John the Baptist, the forerunner or the one to announce the coming of the Messiah (Mark 1).

The Tragedy of Gehazi by Reverend Clayton E. Williams, D.D

Hebrew maid told Naaman, the Syrian prince had come to the prophet to be healed of the disease which harassed him. Despite his reluctance to fulfill the prophet’s conditions, his mission had been successful and his gratitude and joy over his recovery, both in body and in spirit, prompted him to offer his benefactor rich gifts of silver and festal garments, all of which were immediately refused.

Stern and uncompromising Elisha wants to avoid the thought that he sold his powers for personal gain, as the sorcerers did their magic charms. After the cure of his leprosy, Namaan left. Gehazi wasn’t happy that his master didn’t collect Namaan’s offer, thus; his greed shut his mind immediately to choose evil instead of good.

At last he set out to take things into his own hands, and running after Naaman, he overtook his chariots. On seeing him, Naaman was concerned lest he might be the bearer of evil tidings. Gehazi, however, assured him that all was well, but that two young men of the sons of the prophets has arrived unexpectedly, and Elisha had sent him for a talent of silver and two changes of raiment. Naaman was delighted to show his gratitude and pressed upon him double that amount, much to Gehazi’s satisfaction.

Elisha, in the meanwhile, missing his servant, had guessed the reason for his absence, so he sent word that, upon his return, Gehazi should appear before him. And there he stood, condemned for his covetousness with a condemnation that left a mark upon him forever after, for he had contracted the leprosy of Naaman. But the leprosy of his body was of little import; he had already fallen a victim to leprosy of the soul.

He had been a good servant, far better than most. He had had a rare experience, living daily in the presence of a great prophet, sharing in his work and witnessing his power, but that did not save him from a great failure! Indeed, it helped in his case to bring it about, for the secret of his trouble lay in the fact that Gehazi was ruined by “familiarity with sacred things”.

Day after day he had gone out with the prophet and had seen his power flow out into life, changing it, restoring it, renewing it. I do not doubt that in the beginning he had been much impressed by the wonders that he saw and that the things he felt had moved his heart. No doubt he had followed Elisha with genuine admiration and had attached himself to him from the purest of motives.

His very obedience was evidence of his loyalty. But little by little – and here lies the tragedy – the unusual became commonplace, the wonderful became ordinary, and the luster that creative contact with God can give to a life was dulled. He lost a sense of their supreme significance. Life had been drained of its wonder by repetition and familiarity.

There is a very subtle danger here. It lies in the fact that those things which should always be sacred, tend to become commonplace. It ought to be the other way around: the commonplace should become sacred. We should worship God in the common task and find divine glory in everyday living.

Like Gehazi, one can live so continuously and so carelessly in the presence of fine things that they lose their significance. But mark you, it isn’t because we live so continuously in the presence of God that it means nothing. It is because we live so continuously and so carelessly in His presence. That was the trouble with Gehazi; he had lost his sense of faith’s reality in his own life.

God’s power demonstrated in another’s life meant little to him because he himself did not feel dependent upon God’s power for his own life. Religion had become a formal affair of fulfilling certain duties which life imposed upon him. And since his own life knew no deep need of the miracle of grace, he had, in consequence, no real appreciation of Naaman’s need and, therefore, no realization of what had been done to him. If we do not feel the urgency of our fellows’ need of God, isn’t it often because we, ourselves, no longer feel God is indispensable, no longer know the radiance of His presence, no longer sustained by His love?

We are not greatly moved by mankind’s desperate need of God. We think man needs a great many things: the solution of his economic, international, and personal problems, but I’m sure we’re not concerned about his need of God, or we would do something about it. If a man is not over concerned with making it possible for others to know God, it’s because God doesn’t mean very much to him? Isn’t it?

Gehazi didn’t count spiritual health worth very much because it didn’t mean much to him. He was much more interested in how much Naaman appreciated his restoration to physical health. All he saw was a man healed of a disagreeable disease. For which he thought he ought to compensate the one who had cured him.

He saw the process and its results, but not the hand behind it; the miraculous was not a window through which to catch a glimpse of something wonderful beyond – an earnest of the power or willingness of God to break through the limitations that life seemed to impose – the source of a new hope, a new faith, a new vision. It was something to be exploited.

You see, Gehazi had lost the capacity to wonder, to marvel, the most precious power we have, for there is a time in everyone’s life when the world is full of wonder, and to be a child is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness and to believe in belief, to see a miracle in every common process; but as time goes on we become accustomed to miracles and take them for granted, and wonder is supplanted by sophistication.

Our smattering of science, which is all the best of us have, convinces us that everything can be explained. We are tempted to think. Since we see how God works, that we can dispense with religion. We have seen behind the scenes, like the country yokel who went to the theater for the first time in his life and was wonderfully impressed by the storm that was staged during the play, but whose wonder suffered a collapse when they took him backstage and he saw that the thunder was made by rolling heavy balls about in a box, the rain by quivering of great sheets of metal, and the wind by whirling fans, and he remarked, “Well, I thought it was something marvelous, but I see it wasn’t anything after all!”

I fear that is the way we often feel about God’s wonders. Like the small boy who took apart the watch to find out what made it run, we have taken the world apart. We have found the wheels that make the ticks and discover what makes the hands move. But for all that, we have missed the Mind that produced it and the Spirit that sustains it. We live in a day of miracles, miracles that should touch our spirits with awe and wonder at the wealth of our universe.

Miracles are doorways through which to catch faith-creating glimpses of another world and if they can break our earthborn bonds and give birth to a spirit of divine expectancy, they can renew our courage and inspire our hearts. But too often, like Gehazi, we have thought of them merely as a means to serve our temporal ends.

Gehazi had ceased to wonder at the miracle and had turned his attention to the contribution it could make to his physical comfort and pleasure. His interest in the miraculous had shifted from the point where it brought a vision of God’s presence and power to the point where it represented a way to get something he wanted. He thought of God’s wonders as something to be exploited for personal gain and advantage.

There are some people who look upon faith as the touchstone to their heart’s desire. “Faith works miracles”, they say to themselves. “If only I can have faith enough, I’ll have no troubles.” They think of religion as a way to get what they want in life. When someone begins to use the best things in life for what he can get out of them, they begin to lose their spiritual significance, and he begins to lose his soul.

The secret of the miraculous does not lie in having something so unusual happen that it bludgeons our poor dull senses into seeing it. The secret of the miraculous lies in the delicate sensitiveness of a soul so responsive as to see God’s hand at every turning and to stop and marvel at the grace of it. Only most of us haven’t the eyes to see them or the heart to wonder at them.

The pursuit of the commonplace obscures them. It isn’t that we live in a humdrum world, but that we live in it and seek no more than that in it, and so we see no more in it, missing the best for which life exists. Seeing miracles in life is seeing God in life, and missing them is missing Him. And everything is an opportunity.

We have lost something from our life with all our cleverness and all our conveniences and comfort, something very precious: seeing the hand of God and marveling. The tragedy of our civilization lies in our not seeing the world with all its beauty, its glory, its miraculous possibilities, its abundant opportunities as the gift of God, a revelation of God’s love, a miracle of grace, but seeing it only as something to exploit to use for our own selfish purposes.

Prophets 1

That’s the tragedy – to face the world in the moment of revelation, when God’s love manifest in Christ lingers by us and to say, “All is well, give me I pray Thee, two changes of raiment and a talent of silver.” “All is well; All I need is pleasure, adornment and security.” That is the tragedy. Gehazi thought that was what he needed when what he really needed was a miracle in his own life. He needed a miracle of grace to open his eyes, to make him see and appreciate God’s love and power in His world. And that is what we all need, a new vision of God’s love and power to redeem life, a new experience of God’s grace.

Pioneering Your Career Unparalleled In Today’s Job Market

Professionals

The definition of ‘life’ is defined in many ways by different dictionaries. My explanation for what life is: Someone taking a journey. If he drives carefully, he reaches his destination safely and if he drives recklessly, he ends up in a ditch or even dies. Everyone has a problem and many times psychologists and psychiatrists traced the cause of the problems to our homes.

Many were born in broken homes and daily abused by alcoholic parents. At school children becomes subject to bullies, racism, discrimination and all kinds of mental torture, leaving them psychological scars, sometimes for the rest of their lives. Even some children born handicap, feel discriminated and shunned by society.

Others suffering from ailments and diseases such as Aids, are completely cut off from society and friends, instead of the love they deserve to pass through the hard times of their lives. Going through such life difficulties: Do you know that you have the courage and willpower to deal with your problems and be whatever you want to be in the society?

Why do you allow problems to take over your life and sell your body when you have a beautiful future ahead of you? Why do you sell drugs for living when there are many opportunities to lift you up from that situation? No matter how serious your situation is, always remember that: you’ve got the power to change your life to be a great person in the society.

That’s where career planning comes in and in fact planning your career isn’t a difficult task or needs skills. You only have to list your interests and choose one to pursue. Many times when writing articles, I love to share my experience. Belgium is not like America, Canada or even Netherlands, countries which have many opportunities for the black man.

I have seen many black journalists in neighboring Holland, America, France, Canada etc, but in Belgium for the past fifteen years, I haven’t seen any black journalist on their television yet. That doesn’t bother me any way, it rather encourages me to focus on my career to become a successful writer, and one thing which I did to avoid depression and to concentrate on my goals is to look for a job as a cleaner.

Even though I have a forklift driving license, I gave up the job and took cleaning as my profession. I clean eight hours per day and write my books at the same time. Just find yourself something to do, no matter how poor the job is and earn something monthly. That will lift up your spirit to be happy to do whatever you want in life.

Professional 4

The world is full of glamorous and beautiful people. We watch film and musicians performing daily on stage or on the television, yet you wouldn’t believe your ears, when you hear of what some of the celebrities went through when they were young. Charlize Theron, one of the successful film actresses, father was alcoholic. Together with her mother, they were abused by her father, yet she put all that behind her to be a great actress today.

Christina Aguilera confessed about how her father physically abused her mother, sister and herself. Rihanna’s childhood was badly affected due to her father’s drug addiction. Today both Christina and Rihanna are successful as musicians. The ultimate question is, would you allow your problems to kill you or determined to kill the problems?

Life is short but while in this world, you can change the world with your knowledge. Crime does’t pay, education is the key, but if it eludes you, another door is open. Cultivate your talent and pray, because through Christ who strengthens us, we can do everything. My life story about how I made it as a writer and journalist in Belgium, going as far as to investigate the high death rate of Africans at the notorious Stuivenberg hospital in Antwerp and brought it to an end, can be read in the book:
