Why You Should Start A Blog

Why You Should Start A BlogHappy Friday everyone. Can you believe that it’s March already? It seems like it was just yesterday when I was chilling in Cuba. That was three months ago. It’s crazy how fast time is going.

Yesterday marked four years since I launched The Butler Journal. Four years ago, I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. I just knew that I wanted to discuss my debt journey and show people that they could travel and not go broke. Four years later things are going much better. My blog has grown a lot in four years.

Today, I want to go over why you should start a blog. If you’re on the fence about starting one, today’s post is just what the doctor ordered.

Teach People

The first reason why you should start a blog is that you can teach people things. If you know a lot about a subject or topic, your blog could be a platform to educate them. As I’ve gotten better with my finances, I’ve used TBJ to let people know how I did things, such as increasing my credit score by 168 points in 8 months. Your audience is out there. You just have to make sure you write good shit and educate them.

Motivate People

If you have a compelling story or life, you can use your blog to motivate people. One of the reasons I started blogging was because I read blogs where people struggled with how debt affected their life, and they made a way out of it. Making Sense of Cents, Young Adult Money, and The Shop My Closet Project are three blogs that I started reading in late 2012/early 2013. All three of those sites continue to help motivate me today.

When I started blogging, I didn’t know if my story was motivating or not. Some people tell me it is, but I’m still not sure. While things have gotten better for me, I’m still in a lot of debt. I can say that I’ve found my stride and have finally been able to start making more payments on it.




Hold Yourself Accountable

Believe it or not, a blog can help to hold you accountable. I set several goals over the years. I post a couple of them on my website at the beginning of each year. Every few months, I go back and review them. This gives me the motivation to complete it. I’ve even had readers ask me about them sometimes.

Help You Grow

A blog can help you grow as a person. I wasn’t a writer before I started blogging. I still don’t consider myself to be a writer, but my skills have gotten much better. Here is a link to my first post. Look at it. It was short as hell. Honestly, it sucks. After you write a lot, something starts to happen. You get better with it. Besides writing better, a blog will help you grow by expanding your computer knowledge. I didn’t know anything about WordPress, designing images or how to effectively advertise via social media. Thanks to blogging, I now know how all of these things.

Help Your Business

If you have a business, a blog can help it. For example, if you have a product-based business, you can write reviews about the products on your site. You can then promote those posts on different social media websites. It could get you some new customers.

It Can Change Your Life

My blog has changed my life. You may think I’m joking when I say this, but I’m not. When I started this site, I was working at a low paying job that I was beginning to hate, and I was struggling with money. My only semi-consistent side hustle at the time was selling mixtapes, but that market was dying. Now, I have several side hustles that are growing every month. I’m also making a dent in my debt. The blog has given me the opportunity to meet and become friends with a lot of great people who just happen to be bloggers. Without a blog, none of this would have happened.

If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, make sure that you check out my step by step guide on creating a website with Bluehost. Use my link to get your hosting for as little as $3.45 per month (this low price is only available through my link). It usually costs $7.99 per month.

February 2017 Debt Update

February 2017 Debt UpdateWhat’s up y’all? Can you believe that today is the last day of February? It’s time for this month’s debt update.

My total debt went from $65,826.26 to $65,071.15. That as a decrease of $755.11. As of today, that is the largest that my debt has ever dropped in one month. I’m ready to have an even bigger drop next month.



The Numbers

Loan 2 – Down from $5750 to $5740

Chase – Down from $1200 to $540

Navient – Down from $24,023 to $23,943

Nelnet – Down from $34,852.91 to $34,848.15

It’s good seeing the debt get smaller. Last month, I set a goal to attack my Chase credit card debt. It worked. If things go how I think they will, the Chase card will be paid off before March is over. I can’t lie, I’m starting to get excited. After that, I will only have student loan debt left! Side hustles have helped me out so much. If you are in debt or you need extra money, you must find a side hustle. There are many side hustles that you do such as selling things on eBay.

Learn to Trade Stocks With a Game (in 30 Minutes per Week or Less)

Learn to Trade Stocks With a Game called TradeJesterAnytime someone tells you how well the economy is doing, they tend to point out that the stock market is at record highs. But when you hear that, you think, “how am I benefitting from the stock market’s rise?” If you’re not invested beyond simple mutual funds or ETFs, you’re really not benefitting. Most mutual funds and ETFs perform worse than the market as a whole. If you want to make real money on your investing dollar, there is a way for you to become more actively engaged in the stock market simply by playing a game.

TradeJester is a new app, available on the web and for free mobile download on both Android and iOS, that actually takes stock trading and simplifies it into week-long fantasy games through their unique Earnings Game. Rather than investing hundreds or thousands of dollars and anxiously watching the market to see if the stocks you picked crater, you spend $5 and compete against other players in a contest to see who can have the largest portfolio gain in a week. Winners on a $5 buy-in can win up to $35 or more in one week. The whole idea of a stock game piqued my interest. I decided to look into it a little more.

The Earnings Game centers around stocks that have quarterly earnings reports coming up that week, so stock movement is usually much greater than usual. Normally this might seem like a risky time to trade a stock, but after a few weeks of playing the game, you’ll learn it’s actually a very profitable time to trade stocks, with relatively little work required. Unlike most active trading strategies that require hours of research and careful timing to ensure you buy and sell at precisely the right time, the TradeJester Earnings Game strategy lets you make your picks over the weekend in 20-30 minutes, then you just sit back and watch your portfolio rise.

How to Play

Playing the game is very easy. The app offers a number of visualizations of stock information to make it as easy as possible to see what your best choices are, rather than having to crunch a bunch of numbers. Each contest, you select six stocks for your portfolio and decide whether to go long or short with those stocks. You choose long if you think the stock will rise, and short if you think it’s going to fall. Then you set a weight for those stocks out of three weight choices. This way you can put more weight into picks that you have the most confidence in.

Price Trend (Regression) Chart

Earnings History and Analysts’ Consensus

To help you make your picks, you’re given a price trend chart that shows you if the stock price is rising or falling, a visualization of the earnings history for the stock so you know if it tends to beat, meet or miss its earnings estimate, and you also get the analysts’ consensus for the stock so you can see what Wall Street experts think. The game gives you multiple filter options to help you narrow down your choices and choose a strategy, further simplifying the process.



Long-Term Value

The app is designed so that you level up as you play. You progress from learning by playing the game to eventually making real trades with the same stocks that you chose for the game. TradeJester guides you through playing for eight weeks of contests, learning the ins and outs of the trading strategy while offering personal progress analytics, so you know where your strengths and weaknesses lie. After that eight weeks, if you have achieved a cumulative gain of 5% or more, you’re ready to try the real thing through their in-app trading platform.

Personal Progress Analytics

TradeJester has found that over 75% of users that play at least five weeks have a positive portfolio gain, and the average gain over that time is over 5%. Not many investment strategies offer you a chance at a 1% gain each week!

My Results

After a week of playing the game, my portfolio gained nearly 240 points, which is just under 1%. That was good enough for 17th place. As a beginner in the stock market, I will take that as a small win. Four out of the six stocks that I picked increased. Once I learn more about the stock market, I know that I will do much better. If you’re someone who wants to learn a little about the stock market without buying shares and possibly losing a lot of money, I’d recommend you check out TradeJester. Like I stated earlier, it’s very easy to navigate. If you do have any questions, check out their FAQ.

As A Side Hustle

Join TradeJester and enter the promo code ButlerJournal. You get a 100% bonus up to $100 on your first deposit and you can become an affiliate yourself to earn money on the side for each person you get to sign up using your promo code. The more your referred users play, the more money you make. If you know the stock market well, then this could be the perfect side hustle for you.

TradeJester is a pretty hip app that I think will catch on. It educates people about the stock market and it allows you to make a little money on the side while you’re doing it. The tournaments are $5 to join which isn’t bad at all. There is a tutorial for first-time users, and there are other tools that will help you as well.

5 Things I Would Tell My Younger Self

5 Things I Would Tell My Younger SelfI know I’m not the only person that wishes they had a time machine. Unfortunately, time machines don’t exist. We have to live with the trial and error of the past. I’m not the type of person who has many regrets. I would like to think that most of the time I’ve made good decisions in life. Still, everyone probably has advice that they would like to give their younger selves. I know I do. I was just talking to a co-worker last week talking how I wish I could go back in time and tell my 23-year-old self some things. Below are five things that I would tell the younger version of myself.

Save more money

In the past, I was somewhat decent with saving money.  Looking back I know that I could have saved more. I never really experienced the typical broke college student lifestyle. I always had a job or some kind of legal hustle going on. I partied and went out a lot, though. Instead of spending that money, I should have put some away in an online account or something. You live, and you learn.

Watch less TV

Growing up I was addicted to TV. If I wasn’t outside playing, I would be watching TV. I did this up until my mid-twenties. Something clicked in my brain. I stopped watching trash TV such as reality shows and started reading a lot more. Honestly, it seems like I have read more books now than I did when I was in high school and college. For me, reading keeps my mind fresh. I am able to learn more things. TV can’t help me with that.

Study abroad

My only real regret from college is not studying abroad for a few weeks during the summer. I literally talked myself out of it a couple of times. I let fear dictate my actions. If I could go back and do it again, I would have signed up for the study abroad course in a heartbeat.

Apply at least $50 per month to your private loans

I didn’t make the most amount of money once I graduated from college. I was still getting used to being a real adult. Instead of deferring all the loans that I had and not paying anything, I would tell my younger self to pay at least $50 per month on them. Doing that would have at least had the amounts lower than they are now.

Every Atlanta sports team will break your heart so get used it

If you are from Atlanta, you can feel my pain on this one. We haven’t had a title in Atlanta since 1995. That was 21 freaking years ago. Since then Atlanta teams have played in the playoffs a lot, but they always find a way to lose. ( I’m not even gonna discuss the Super Bowl.) I would tell my younger self not to get so emotionally invested in those teams because they will lose and break your heart over and over again.

Those are five things that I would tell my younger self. What would you tell your younger self?

10 Ways to Make Money Online (While You’re Working)

10 Ways to Make Money Online (While You’re Working)Everyone wants to make more money, and the Internet is a virtual gold mine of opportunities. But what if you already have a job and can’t give it up to go chasing the dream of making money online? For those of you who want to keep your main job, here are ten ways to make money online while working.

Freelance Writing: If you have a job that gives you a lot of down time (like acting or driving a cab), you might consider becoming a freelance writer. Freelance writing jobs are easier to get than ever before because people are constantly building new websites and they all need content.

Book Covers: Creating “prefabricated” book covers can be a great business if you are good at graphic design. Create a hundred or so and then upload them all to a website connected to your PayPal account. You can either sell them as exclusive book covers and replace them with a new design when someone buys them, or you can sell them non-exclusively for cheap.

Transcription: Medical transcription isn’t the only kind of transcription job that is out there. There are some companies that are always hiring people to transcribe audio files from seminars, transcribe videos for closed captioning and much more. You can do this while you aren’t at work or even during your downtime if your job allows this.

Buy Items & Sell on eBay: Buying items that people are selling at yard sales or on Craigslist (check the “free” section) and then listing them on eBay will allow you to make an income while you are at work. Of course, you will have to spend some time buying items and shipping them when they are sold, but for the most part, the business runs itself.

Install Apps: Believe it or not, you could get paid for installing apps. Apps like SavvyConnect pay you up to $180 per year to keep them installed, while Nielsen Mobile Panel (the TV rating measurement) will pay you up to $50 per year to install their app and then browse the web as you normally would.




Buy Stuff Online: There are a few tools out there that will let you get money for your online buys back. Paribus is a good example. It checks your email for receipts, and when you purchase from one of the 16 retailers on their list (like Amazon and Target), you get money back.

High-frequency trading: It is perfect for you if you are a do-it-yourself type. Even though you will need to spend some time for education, you will later get an opportunity to earn substantial income spending only a couple of hours a day.

Drive for Uber/Lyft: This is definitely something that you can do if you have a job that allows you to leave at any time and come back later. For example, if you work from home, you can sign up to be an Uber driver, and when someone near your house orders an Uber (or Lyft), you just go give them a ride and then come back and keep working. Easy extra money.

Participate in Medical Testing: The key idea is to take a specific drug or do a specific treatment protocol and then submit reports once a week or so. In other words, you’ll be paid while you continue to live your normal life.

Lose Weight: Finally, if you want to make some money losing weight, trying websites like FitBit or HealthyWage is the perfect option. You get money after you lose a certain amount of weight.

How to Have a Vision Board Party

How to Have a Vision Board PartyI am a big fan of vision boards. I’ve been creating them for years. A vision board is a collage of images and phrases that shows you what you want to accomplish in your life. I first heard about them after watching the movie “The Secret.” There was a scene where a person realized that he was living in the house that he put on his vision board a few years ago.

I have been doing vision boards for several years now. On a board that I made in 2012, ten things have come to pass. On my 2015 board, six things have happened. I honestly believe that seeing things that you want to happen stays in your subconscious mind. Then, they manifest themselves when you work. In January, I had my first vision board party. I had 16 attendees show up. Everyone had a great time. There may be someone out there that wants to have a vision board party later this year or early next year, but they may not know where to begin. In today’s post, I will be going over how to have a vision board party.

Find a location

The first thing that needs to be done if you’re having a vision board party is to find a place. This will depend on the number of people that you want to show up. If you plan to have a small gathering, you may be able to have it at your house or apartment. If you intend to do something bigger, it’s best to hold it in a venue. Some places that you can consider having it are community centers or restaurants. I had mine at a community center.



Contact People

You have to let people know that you are having an event. That can be done by word of mouth, e-mail, social media, or even through a newsletter if you have a blog or business. I used each of these ways when I promoted mine.

Supplies

Decide if you want to have people bring their own supplies or if you want to bring them. The supplies that you will need are as follows:

Poster Boards

Scissors

Glue Stick

Magazines

I provided most of the supplies for my vision board party. I did ask a few of my homegirls to bring some of their magazines because I didn’t have particular types of them.

Food & Drinks

The next thing that you need to do is to decide if you will have any food or drinks. At my party, I had both. One of my friends brought pizza. We also have chips. For drinks, we had wine, whiskey, vodka, water, soda, and juice. People thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Work on your Board

The next thing that you need to do is work on your board. Take about two hours to go through the magazines to find different pictures. Then arrange the pictures on the board before you glue them. Once you have them looking the way you want to, then it’s time to glue them.

Present your Board

The final thing to do is to show your board. It doesn’t need to be mandatory. Some people really don’t like speaking, or they get nervous. Allow the people that want to go over theirs to do so.

It’s pretty easy to have a vision board party. If you’ve been considering one, do it. A vision board could help you take your life to another level.

How to Have a Vision Board PartyHave you ever been to a vision board party before?

100 Things to Sell on eBay

100 Things to Sell on eBay
Good morning everyone. By now, you probably know that eBay is one of my favorite side hustles. I enjoy flipping items a lot. It’s fun and easy to do.
