Lifestyle is a very broad topic. Thus, creating and building a lifestyle blog may not be as easy as most would like to think. Some see it as some magazine-type of reporting while others may look at it as more of a personal sharing of the day-to-day existence of the author.

Awesome Landlord Being a landlord is no easy task, no matter how many articles you find about the allure of passive income. Sometimes it’s impossible to fill a vacant property, sometimes a tenant is a nightmare and your state laws make it tough to evict them, and sometimes you get stuck with a lemon of a property that you’re constantly fixing. However, when landlording is done right, it really is the American dream come true. But is it your American dream? Becoming a landlord requires a huge investment and a lot of risk. It’s not something to jump into lightly, unlike other entrepreneurial pursuits such as blogging that has little required investment (beyond your time, of course).

It was true of the UFOs in the 1950s and has remained so throughout books, films, TV shows, and any other media since. If you want to present something as high-tech and futuristic, it obviously has to be shiny. Some “creative types” went a little unorthodox and pushed the brush metal option, but that’s still a kissing cousin of the classic. If you’re in the tech industry, you might be tired of constantly seeing your reflection in all your gadgets and devices. The good news is that style and décor trends have been moving toward a more natural, organic look in recent years. People have realized that what makes them feel good is not blinding silver, but wood, neutrals, and soothing tones. That trend has (finally) expanded to technology, with everything from wood-coated USBs to bamboo PC casings. Here are a few reasons to ditch sleek and slick in favor of the natural approach.
