    How to find your unique writing voice

    I get asked all the time by my adoring fans (aka the two people who will read this), “Lion, how did you get such a kick-ass writing style? I love listening to you roar and growl all over the jungle. Can you be the voice of our generation? “To which I say…. Simba, my child, sure I’ll do it. I’ll take that magic bullet from here to Narnia! Where is this generational voice vacancy? Or GV if your savvy. Ok, ill fess up. No one has ever asked me any of that, but if said vacancy did becom...

    Lack Engagement? It's all about turning your blog into an effective rabbit hole

    OK. Firstly, let me clarify! The term I’m talking about is of course from the 1951 animated film Alice in Wonderland. So when I say, “rabbit hole”, I’m referring to the deep and colorful scenarios that Alice, our protagonist encounters as she gets lost in Wonderland. The movie pulls you in with a unique and original story line, and before you know it, you’re taken from one fantastical scenario to the next with nothing less than amazement and awe. If you haven’t watched this Disney cl...

    Don’t talk yourself out of an idea just because it’s been done before. Put your own spin on it. Bring in your own personal experiences. You will have your own stories to tell, which will make it unique. -- Dr Joe Vitale

    Scientists Have Figured Out Why Human Skin Doesn't Leak

    Our skin might give us grief sometimes, but one thing we can always depend on it to do is not start indiscriminately leaking blood and sweat everywhere - despite the fact that we're shedding roughly 500 million cells every 24 hours.

    Why I Would Be Happy if Professional Blogs Died Tomorrow

    Professional blogs are boring. They replicate mass media. They don’t bring any fresh ideas to the table. They take middle-of-the-road positions on everything. They focus on churning out content, not for its intrinsic value but for clicks (for revenue) They outsource their content at very little cost (guest posts or ghostwriters). They refrain from controversial positions in fear of losing their audience. And often, their success was simply built on being the first to leverage some marketing st...

    You can start more than one tribe, but there is a limit per account, based on your "XP" (experience) level which goes up over time.

    The step you are describing uses "mirroring", which allows you to quickly add previously-submitted content to your tribe really quickly and easily. You can do that at anytime, and for any of the tribes you operate.

    Gutenberg and the Road Ahead

    I have a confession to make. I really like the new Gutenberg editor for WordPress. I know, I know. Developers aren't supposed to like massive, intrusive changes like this. As of the time of this writing, the plugin stands with 2.6 stars on the plugin repository – at least 133 of those ratings are 1-star critiques.

    Google collects Android users' locations even when location services are disabled

    Many people realize that smartphones track their locations. But what if you actively turn off location services, haven’t used any apps, and haven’t even inserted a carrier SIM card? Even if you take all of those precautions, phones running Android software gather data about your location and send it back to Google when they’re connected to the internet, a Quartz investigation has revealed.
