Most popular video games in 2019

There are actually a lot of games that have been launched last year and at the beginning of this year. I have tried playing all the games to find out the best games to include in my post. Here are the ones that I like playing and you too can try your hands on.

1. Overwatch

This is a team-based multiplayer game which comes with amazing features. The game was launched in 2016 and since then it has seen exponential growth in the number of players. Seeing the popularity of this game among the youth, you will agree with me that it has the potential to become the best multiplayer shooter game of the present time.

2. Fortnite

This is a free-to-play online shooter game. It is currently the most streamed game on Twitch. I have done streaming videos on this game and tried to become popular. Initially, I didn’t get a lot of followers. So, I purchase some followers and views from this website. This has given my Twitch profile some exposure and I have become more popular as a streamer.

3. Halo 5: Guardians

I have always been a fan of the Halo series. So, this time when I got to try the newest version of the game, I knew I would like it. I wasn’t wrong. The game did justice to the previous versions. It can certainly get to one of the top positions in the list of best action games this year.

4.Cuphead

This game comes with beautiful graphics representing the cartoon art of the 1930s. If you are someone who has a thing for simple beautiful graphics games, this game is going to blow your mind.

5. Doom

This is one of the best first-person shooting games you can play. It is known for having received Game of the Year award in 2016. If you have a craze for fighting frightening creatures and monsters, this is the game for you. You are going to love it.

6. Far Cry 5

This is one of the most addictive games I have played. Fans of the previous versions of the game are delighted with the additional features that come with this version. It is worth your try if you like the previous versions of the game. You won’t be disappointed.

7. Ori & The Blind Forest

This is another graphic oriented game that can hook you with its mesmerising visuals. I was absorbed in the game for some time and loved the storyline. I am sure a lot of gamers, especially those who love graphic games, will love this game. Try this and you will know what I mean.

8. Dishonoured 2

When it comes to creativity and design, this game has it all. This is an action-adventure game developed by Arkane Studios. All I can say about this game is that it is one of the most fun games I have played. It is definitely worth a try.

How I built my online business from scratch

One of the most fulfilling things in life is to know that you have created something valuable. I became aware of this feeling only last week when I took some time off to look back at my journey so far as an online entrepreneur. And the moment I realized the value of my work, I realized that I have done so much to reach where I am now.

I have worked on my skills. I have spent countless hours working on projects and I have learned from my failures again and again. While I was having this thought, there was one more thought that crossed my mind. I had the thought of sharing my entrepreneurial journey with my readers.

So, in this post, you are going to go through my journey as an online entrepreneur and see that things that I did to reach where I am now.

My entrepreneurial journey started back in 2011 when I was still in my high school. I was one of those kids who didn’t like spending time loitering on the campus without any purpose. I used my spare time sitting in the library going through books about self-improvement and entrepreneurship. I had read almost all the books in the library that covered these topics. I was also spending a lot of time on the internet learning new skills.

There was so much to learn that I used to spend six hours every day on the internet reading the latest business tips and watching videos about building online businesses.

I spend around six months doing just that before I realized that I wasn’t doing anything practical. That was when I got into action and started my journey of entrepreneurship. I started with basic things like building a webpage, creating social media campaigns and running test ads on Google. I started with a shoestring budget and went on from there.

My first successful business model was a blog about high school gamers. Before the time I started my online entrepreneurial journey, I was into video games like most of my friends. The idea about starting a gamer blog came from there. Soon I went on to start a YouTube channel about gaming. However, it took me some time to realize that I was not very good at what I was doing.

That was when I started exploring other options for online business. I came to know about Android app development and did some research on it. Eventually, I found out that this was something that I could do for a living. I started learning the skills for becoming an Android developer. It took me about a year to learn the skills and work on trials before I could launch my first Android app. This time I was sure about making some money. I wasn’t wrong to think so. The app was a hit on the Play Store and I started making some decent money.

Soon, I figured out that being an online entrepreneur is not a one-man job. That was when I decided to build a team. I started with two of my juniors from high school and today after eight years of the journey, I work with a team of 13 members.

After having hired five people into the team, I decided to get some funding. I was not very confident about VC funding. I thought of a different strategy. I applied for loans from instant loan companies. Here is a website that helps you compare these company portfolios. I got my loan approval soon and started putting more money into the business. That loan had really helped me grow my business.

I started an affiliate marketing blog. It was doing well. Then I started a dropping business. That was a hit too. I invested the profit from those businesses into my e-commerce store. That was how I grew my business online.

Today, I have a wide network of online income sources ranging from mobile apps, online stores to social media services. The journey has been a long one and I have learned a lot from mistakes. That was how I started my business from scratch and scaled it to where it is now.

The World From A Dog’s Perspective

I remember the first time I was held by a human. Oh, I still remember that sweet smell. Well, that is something I am really good at – smelling humans. I am so in love with their smell. Humans are good. They feed me, love me and let me lick their faces. I love to do that – lick human faces. Well, that’s how I show my emotion. And yes, there are a lot of other things I do to express my emotions. I will let you know about it some other time.

 

For now, I have something else to tell you.

I always believed that humans are my friends. They can never think bad about me. But, things have changed a little since I met Roxie, my new neighbour. She is a pretty little Pomeranian. I met her only a week back. But since the time she came here, she has been around me all the time. That’s because her human friend keeps coming here everyday tagging her along.
While the humans get themselves busy with their thing, Roxie and I play around the backyard. During one of our conversations, she happened to tell me something that I can’t get out of my head.


She said, “I don’t like humans anymore.”


I was surprised at what she said. “Why is that?” I asked.


“Because they make us do what they like. Is this what they call love?”
she said. I sensed that she was hurt emotionally.


“What happened? Why do you feel this way about them?”
I probed further. I really wanted to know what made her think so.


“Christy is a good lady. But, she makes me wear all those fancy clothes. I keep protesting, but she forces me to wear them. She likes to see me in those dresses, but I feel really uncomfortable in them. I hate it. And I don’t understand what to do.”


She kept talking about her human friend, what she liked and what she hated about her. I kept listening. I didn’t know what to say. I was never treated badly. But, I knew what she said cannot be a lie. Dog’s don’t lie.


After that day, I started to talk to other dogs whenever I could. I learnt that some of the dogs are not treated well by their humans. Once, I saw a man hitting a dog on the street simply because it was littering there. I was terrified to see that. How could he do that!


Another shocking thing that I learnt from a dog friend of mine is that humans exchange dogs for some paper. Although I could not understand him completely, I remember him saying something about 
dog price. I started asking some more dogs about it. Some of them said they knew about it. Humans exchange dogs for something else.


That is what has made me really worried. Am I going to be exchanged for some papers? Do I have a dog price? Do humans really love me? I hope they do because I love them a lot.

How Learning To Ride A Motorcycle Changed My Life

It was during my teenage years that I got my first bike ride experience. It was the time before I lost my parents. It was a bike that belonged to my father’s friend. I happened to ride it for five minutes or so. Even though I had that experience eight years back, I still remember it very clearly.

That was 12 years ago. I am 25 now. I have a job. Sure, now I can say that I am doing well. But, things would have been different had I not learnt how to ride a motorcycle. And that would not have been possible without the help of my friend, Sunny.

Did you ever come across a person you met suddenly and realize that something in your life has changed because of that person? Sunny was one such person in my life whose arrival had changed my life drastically.

I had just finished my 12th Board exams. I was uncertain about my further studies. I didn’t have enough funds to support my education. That was when I met Sunny. I clearly remember the day. I was waiting for the bus to get to my place when I saw a person seated on a motorcycle just near me. I was fascinated by the bike. He must have noticed me ogling at his bike. He said, “Wanna go for a ride?”

I hesitated at his sudden friendly offer. I didn’t say anything. I just shook my head.

“I saw you taking interest in my bike. I can give you a ride if you want. How does that sound?” he said.

This time I agreed to go with him. I really wanted to have that experience of hopping on to a superbike. That was the first day of my encounter with him. Soon we became acquainted. He was in Delhi for his studies while I lived there. He would ask me about the best places to visit in Delhi. I would take him there. That’s how we got to know more about each other.

One day when we got talking about our career plans, Sunny got surprised to know that I had no plans for further study. I didn’t tell him that I couldn’t afford to go to college because of my poverty. I didn’t want him to pity me. However, I couldn’t hide it from him. He understood my problem and offered to help.

He was from a well-to-do family and there was no problem in helping me. The only problem then was that I refused to accept any financial help from him. I told him to help me in any other way he can. That was when he came up with the idea of me taking up a part-time job.

The best option according to me for a part-time job was being a delivery boy. To become one I had to learn how to ride a motorcycle. With Sunny’s help, I learnt how to ride a motorcycle.  That was it. Once I learned to ride a bike, it was very easy to get the job of a delivery boy. Once I had the job, I could gather enough money to pay for my college fees. That was how having a motorcycle changed my life.

One of the best ways to learn how to ride a motorcycle without having your own bike is to get a rental bike. But of course, here you will need the help of someone with a driving license. Here is a website that lists bike rental providers in Delhi and other major cities of India. Check it out and get a bike on rent.

The Future Of Facebook Marketing

Facebook Marketing is a trending topic for marketers today. But, not many people know how relevant Facebook marketing is in terms of reaching out to the audience or building a brand.

In this post, you will understand why Facebook Marketing is important for your business and what are the trends that Facebook Marketing will include in the near future.

Why is Facebook Marketing important for brands and businesses?

Facebook Marketing is really important for business and brands today. A lot of marketers consider this to be a major marketing arena for increasing conversion and making a business profitable.

Here are the reasons for the importance of Facebook Marketing for you as brands and businesses.

  • It gives exposure to your products/services.
  • It increases the reach of your business to a wider region.
  • It helps in creating a good image of your business in the minds of people.
  • It lets you reach a very specific audience which is likely to convert into customers.
  • It helps you ace your digital marketing efforts and make your business digitally successful.

What is Facebook Marketing like today?

Initially, Facebook Marketing was centred around efforts towards increasing the number of likes for your Facebook post or page. A lot of people believed that this helped in increasing the reach of their content to a wider audience. A lot of people used to buy Facebook post likes to increase engagement on their post. Back in the day, this trick used to work. But not anymore. While there are still people who do buy Facebook post likes, nothing much happens with this marketing effort.

The present scenario in the Facebook Marketing arena is very different from what it used to be a few years back. The marketing efforts that used to work earlier do not work anymore.

The one thing that makes Facebook different from other social networking sites is that it is constantly changing.

According to popular social media news sources, these are some of the changes that have come into effect on Facebook:

1. Personalization

If you notice the new Facebook updates, you will find that a lot of times Facebook makes videos customized for you. These videos are made to make you feel that they care for you. This is something new that Facebook is doing on the user enlightenment front.

2. Communication

Modern-day Facebook marketers make the most use of Facebook’s Messenger app for communicating with customers and brands. This is a trend that is going to get bigger in the future.

3. Live videos

Top Facebook marketers recommend making the most use of live videos to create engagement with your audience. Live videos can help in making your business reach more people and make you the face of your business.

The Future of Facebook Marketing

Facebook is focused on being more community-focused and transparent. People’s privacy concern has forced Facebook to tweak some of its features and make it more secure. Facebook is now working on new features that will be in alignment with the audiences’ needs. While Facebook keeps adding a lot of high-end features, these are some of the areas that Facebook marketers need to focus on:

  • Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
  • Facebook Messenger connections
  • Facebook as a search engine

Conclusion

Facebook Marketing is rapidly changing. With the constant updating of the Facebook algorithm, marketers have no option other than keeping themselves updated about these changes day in and day out. With so many features coming up on Facebook, there is a constant need for Facebook Marketers to adapt themselves to the changes and make the best use of the evolving marketing opportunities.
