Blog Break!

I’ve gone back to recording and playing. I’m currently working on “Berit-Vol.2” and feel way more energised this year than what I did when I first started working on “Berit-Vol.1” If you want to follow and support the making of my new album then please go here: Please support my music! It is also possible to support my creativity via PayPal., and get the same rewards as a Patron.

I’ve already written several new pieces of music this year that has nothing to do with the “Berit” series, I’ve also gone back to proper practising and have picked up the creative pieces from before I got sick.

Back in 2016 it appears that I had made it my mission to complete the lyrics and concepts for my unreleased metal music, in addition to this I find myself overwhelmed by an abundance of audio notes, written notes, etc; featuring song ideas, lyric ideas, book ideas, character ideas, you name it.

I feel very strongly that I need to sort out as much of this as possible, in addition to this I have lots of ideas churning in the back of my mind in regards to relevant/timely blog entries, but I’ll let those simmer in the background as I finish up on all of these others things that are “cooking.”

The other day I was out in town doing something unusual in this day and age; browsing through library books on the quest for references for my 2nd illustrated lyric book. I will probably post a picture of my 1st illustration as I’ve only shared this with my followers on Patreon so far. I made a pretty cool artwork last year and have pretty much mentally mapped out how I want my new lyric book to look like so now it only remains to put all of the individual pictures together. Here are some pictures from my 1st lyric book, it is available as an ebook right here: ILLUSTRATED LYRIC BOOK the physical version is only available through my Patreon.

As I’ve regained my inspiration and drive I’ve lost interest in regularly blogging so I’ll take a break from this hobby, at least until I’ve sorted through all of these lyrics, story ideas and songs that are spread around all over the place.

Until then.

11 Ways To Improve Your Skin.

At the beginning of the year I announced that I would probably be moving in a different direction here on my blog in order to cater to the popularity of self-help articles and skin-care related entries here on my site.

As it turns out it was easier said than done.

I only use make-up whenever I’m shooting videos, performing or creating content. In fact I let my skin rest most of the time because I’ve had this theory that that is better long-term. Whenever I leave the house to take care of an errand I’ll normally just put on some foundation, so I always end up with a very natural look.

During a podcast I listened to yesterday it was said that the average woman leaves her house with a 120 chemicals on her body! The greatest offender is apparently perfume since this can cause headaches, etc;

After listening to this very girly conversation I understood why my Skin Care. Red Flag Alert. is so very popular. Women are waking up to a cleaner lifestyle and are not interested in being poisoned long-term by the beauty products that they use!

It was an interesting episode which reminded me of the moment that my song “Toxic” came to me. Originally it was inspired by beauty products but I changed the topic since I didn’t think that it was very “rock’n’roll.”

As more and more women are becoming sceptical of what they put on their skin (which I also read in an article a while back), then maybe my 11 “beauty tips” below will become increasingly relevant.

My tips would be:

  1. Avoid prescription drugs unless you cannot.
  2. Don’t use make-up regularly.
  3. Don’t drink alcohol regularly.
  4. Don’t smoke.
  5. Don’t do drugs.
  6. Try to get hold of good quality food.
  7. Don’t eat ready meals.
  8. Only use what you have to use in terms of beauty products.
  9. Try to establish a routine of doing a face-massage. You can do this yourself. There are plenty of good tutorials on YouTube. Just go on there and do a quick search!
  10. Try to avoid what makes you emotionally upset.
  11. Create. If you are not artistic then I would recommend buying a colouring book or puzzles, anything that can get your mind off your troubles and the problems of the world. Journaling is something that is commonly recommended in wellness articles.

Another obvious advice would be to go to bed early, but I’m not very good at this!

In terms of self-help I hope that my upcoming faith-journey videos will help people find happiness. The other day I was listening to a guy who proclaimed that “pain was good for business.” Why? Because you can then offer people a solution to their suffering and make a profit.

What if you could get hold of a solution that was free of charge?

Stay tuned – my faith journey videos will be released soon!

In the meantime: take care!

Lots of love! ❤

WordPress Problems…

So I have this re-occurring problem here on WordPress where I sometimes cannot access the “new editor” since I only get up a white page with the WordPress logo.

The upside is that you can still edit inside the “old editor,” the downside is that if you want to contact tech-support you will be directed to the blank page in the “new editor” … which means that tech-support is useless unless you can access the “new editor.”

The same thing goes for the management of your payments. If you fear that you are having problems since your payment is due you cannot even check your status or payment plan since this will also direct you to the “new editor.”

Tech-support on WordPress is stellar and instant whenever you need it, or it is, if everything is up and running and working.

I’ve figured out that everything is operational when I’m using a different browser, so if you are experiencing the same you know what to do!
