Hey folks. Rye here of Get back to basics. In my previous blog, I have shared the 10 Key Takeaways Traits from your Best friend Dog.
In this blog, I’ll share what are the 10 Key Takeaway Traits from your best friend Cat.
While the dogs rightfully earned their reputation as a man’s best friend because of the fact that their owner is everything to them and are great companions who truly love you unconditionally. On the other hand, we can associate the cats as a woman’s best friend because they are more independent, unpredictable and you have to earn its loyalty first before securing their affection to you that is sealed for life which is very similar to courting and winning woman’s heart.
Here are the 10 Key Takeaway Traits You Can Learn From Your Best Friend Cat
They keep you humble – I mentioned that in order for you to receive and enjoy cat’s love and affection. You must earn, work for it and maintain it. The fact that you need to keep working for their acceptance will keep you humble into some extent.
They have a great sense of balance – one of their unique trait is having a great sense of balance like when you see them walk along the rail of a fence or at the edge of the roof. And even in their fall, it seems that they are always manage to land straight up. It is such a great life aspect we can learn from them.
They are a sharp listener – I believe that cats have a sharp hearing ability that they can listen to the slightest sound and is aware in their surroundings. A skill that is very useful to them, and I think is great to have for us too.
They are polite – in general, one of cat’s good traits is that they have a welcoming attitude, most especially to visitors. They will wait politely to be invited to interact and will wind between your legs when you allow them.
They have an excellent reflex – They are such good in evading things when they are in trouble or when things about to hit them. A trait that we can learn and apply in our lives when facing troubles.
They have a go for it attitude – Cats are brilliant hunters. They watch and silently wait for their prey. Once they see an opportunity, they grab it with full force without hesitation.
They are hygienic – Cats are known for their personal hygiene and general cleanliness. They use their tongues as a wash cloth and a brush to remove loose hair and dust.
They are independent – Cats are famously low-maintenance. They don’t need to be bathed or taken for walks. They can be left on their own for hours. Reason also a stray cat can live longer that a stray dog.
They have a longer life – Losing a pet is heartbreaking but cats can lessen the heartbreaks as they average a lifespan of about 15 years.
They are intelligent – Cats are self-sufficient and can figure out the solutions to their problems on their own through observation as they are quite good at it.
That’s it. Understanding and observing our best friend cat’s good traits and unique behaviors can teach us many valuable lessons in life that we can learn from and definitely apply in our lives as well in some aspect.

Hey online folks, last July 2nd this year 2020 I’ve wrote an article about my enthusiasm in having my first ever revenue traction for my WordAds. The reason I want to do this is to really share with my other bloggers mainly whose using WordPress and WordAds as well like myself. Plus, to document my progress as well and the information behind it, so in the future once I reached my peak, I would know where I came from (step by step & bit by bit) in which makes it more sweet!
Anyway, before going to my updates now December 10th of this year 2020, if you guys are curious with my previous article regarding this, go check it out here in this LINK which the title is “Finally, I am seeing some revenue tractions to my blog using WordAds“
Onto now with my updates:
As you see in above chart, my Average CPM is at $0.22 dollars for 1,192 ADS Served in which equates to $0.26 revenue for the month of November.
And as you see in above chart for the current month of December (2nd week only), my Average CPM is at $0.11 dollars for 964 ADS Served in which equates to $0.11 revenue.
Note that in the past months, I haven’t had any movement ($0.00) except last June which I had my first revenue tractions (ADS Served: 1,304 | Average CPM: $0.02 | Revenue: $0.02)
Actually, am not quite sure why is that but I think it really depends on the number of impressions and ADS served you have on a daily or monthly basis which is why my this November last month, I started to increase and pick up more site impressions, hence qualifies me to get the CPM.
As we know CPM is the amount you pay on an advertising platform per thousand views for your ad. Cost per thousand impressions or CPM, in the online marketing world, literally means “Cost per thousand” in which the “thousand” refers to the number of impressions. Impressions are the views you get with your site, just to add.
How I think we can get or increase our CPM percentage?
I think in my perspective, to increase the percentage of your CPM, you got to get an increase of site impressions as well. And to do that, there’s 2 ways I can think of: one is to increase the number of your articles/posts in your website and second, of course the increasing good quality of the content (good SEO post title, engaging topic, well written article and adding more visuals to it like images and videos)
Now, in my previous post I have shared my site’s statistics for a reference. I’ll share again what I have at moment below:
Currently, I have 77 articles/posts on my blog site
Just to share my personal reaction, I am quite happy where I am at right now and where I am heading to. I am only halfway a year as a Blogger and just about a couple of months as a Vlogger and getting this increasing viewers and followers is such a great feeling and rewarding.
If you have any questions or you want to share yours about this topic, please feel free to comment down below and let’s have a chat about it 😊👌

Today, I would like to share my mixed emotions of excitement, joy and gratitude as I have gotten a lots of positive reactions towards my recently created Vlog which topic was “How to deal with YouTube success”
To share with you my basic reason I created this specific vlog topic, is first, since I am just new to vlogging, I want to set my goals straight, plan my steps and list the things that I will do once I achieve success in it. I am a very optimistic person, that’s why I see myself on top on this already – which is a way for me to motivate and persevere with my life goals. Also, another reason is to really share this with others, I think this is a positive and helpful mindset to share in a way that others may use it and help them as well towards their own life goals. For me that would be a great feeling, while I look for my own personal development, I can also help others, even in the smallest way by spreading this kind of mindset and personal plan. It’s a WIN WIN for me already.
Now just to share with you some of the amazing feedback and positive reactions to my vlog episode, here are some of these:
Again, I am so grateful for these very positive reactions, making myself become more determined to continue spreading good stuffs to help people become motivated, inspired and informed.

In this article, I will be introducing a new terminology that I thought would be fitting if you are a Vlogger and a Blogger at the same time like myself. Also, I’ll share how we can be effective in this field.
I’d like to introduce to you to the term “Full Stack” and what does it mean. In technology development, Full Stack refers to an entire computer system or application from the front end to the back end and the code that connects the two.
If you are in the world of I.T or Information Technology, I’m pretty sure you have already heard the term “Full Stack Developer” wherein it is a person who can develop using both Frontend and Backend of a website application. Similarly as to what “Full Stack Designer” is, where it has a range of skills including UX and UI design, coding, copyrighting, etc.
There’s also what they call Full Stack Marketers who is someone able to manage a lot of marketing operations from creative parts down to the most technical aspects.
In my perspective, if you are a blogger (writing articles for your web blog) and at the same time you are a vlogger (who regularly makes video blogs or vlogs) then YOU ARE A FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR. Sounds cool right?!
Now. Wait. You may ask. “Isn’t that difficult to sustain and manage both of your Blog site and YouTube channel?”
Well, my answer is “Yes” But, I will give you tips on how you can do that both at the same time and become an EFFECTIVE FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR.
Let’s assume you have already a setup Blog website and a YouTube channel. Here are some of my tips that I practice as well:
Synchronize your niche topic for both of your Blog and Vlog. For e.g. if you blog about gaming, types of games, or how you play a specific game. It will be efficient if that will be your niche topic in your vlog also.
Reuse your vlog script for your blog write ups or article. I think most of the Vloggers creates their scripts before recording or going live stream for their vlogs. Make sure when you make your scripts, do it in a way that it is readily available or formatted for blogging like putting title headers, outlines, lists, etc.
Exchange references or add links for both of your Vlog and Blog. For e.g. in your Vlog, add a link of your Blog in your channel’s description or even on the video description. Likewise, you add references, links or video embed of your Vlog episode in your Blog article. This will help both platforms gain organic views eventually.
Try to post both of your Vlog episode and Blog article sequentially (If both contains the same topic)
Lastly, if you are creating a Google Campaign Ads for either your Blog post or YouTube video, make sure it contains a reference with each other so that it can impact views or engagements results both ways, making your Ads very efficient. In my upcoming vlogs, I’ll cite some concrete examples about this part.
That’s it. Try to follow and practice these tips and become and effective FULL STACK CONTENT CREATOR.
By the way, since I provided the tips, I’ll cite an example here right away 🙂

We are now in the year ending month (December) of this year 2020, before we say goodbye to it. Looking back, all through out the year we have had a lot of struggles and challenges either personal or the people in general because of the pandemic impact. Many people have lost its jobs, businesses shutdown and countless deaths due to it.
I think this upcoming holidays whether you are a Christian or not, each of us can reflect to all the happenings and learn from it. We can use the learnings we’ve had moving forward to the next year 2021 and in the coming years as well.
My 5 Learned Lessons this Year 2020 Which I Can Bring to Next Year 2021 and Live A Positive Life
Learn to appreciate your Job whatever it is. I remember, way back when it was still normal, I tend to lose my focus at time with my Job, probably because you hate your boss, or you don’t like the task assigned to you. But right now, you’ll realize how important is your job and never take it for granted as it feeds you, your family and provide its needs.
Learn to save and manage money. Since we have experienced this kind of global pandemic, we understand now how vulnerable our job is and can easily gone. In case we lost our job, a backup savings is an important factor to remedy the lost job and help us get cover our financial needs while we don’t have a job yet. We can only do this if we learn to manage our money and spend it wisely.
Keep on learning. When you find something that you were good at, take the time to cultivate it and work hard at mastering it. There’s no time to learn and improve self but now.
Treat others with respect and love, the way you wished to be treated fairly and reciprocated the love and respect you deserved. This year have taught us that this is vital for us to achieve peace globally.
Love your family, your wife/husband and your children as if it’s the last time you’ll ever see them because you really never know what will happen tomorrow. This pandemic shows how life is short lived and can be taken away easily.
The Bonus Part:
Be positive as much as we can. For sure we can never avoid having negative thoughts given all the bad happenings and unfortunate events came forth this year and time can only if we will encounter another one. Hopefully never again. But whatever happens in the future, its always great to have a positive mind. Train our mind to catch negative thoughts and when they arise, immediately stop and replace your thoughts with positive ones.
I always believe in the saying that, when life provides you lemons, make lemonade! In most cases, you’re in charge of whether you see a situation in a negative or positive light. With determination and continious practice, obtaining a positive outlook will presumably come naturally.

I am optimistic that the Year 2021 will be a year to rebuild, healing and abundance. Let’s change our ways for the better and start our next year strong.
Thanks and I hope this article kinda gives you a bit of positivity and let’s you look forward for a great next year.
They say (I mean some of the veteran YouTubers) that the first 100 subs will be one of the hardest to achieve. Today, when I woke up this morning, checked my phone and view my YT Studio, and then BAM! I see 107 Subscribers now coming off from at 90 + yesterday.
So having said this and also as this is become my habit personally that I will give my utmost thanks and make a post on every achievement-step I make in this content creation world (Blogging/Vlogging)
a BIG SHOUT OUT and THANK YOU to everyone who supports my YouTube channel at its baby steps. Looking forward when it grows even further. I will continue to create quality content and provide you a dose of motivation, inspiration and helpful information about self-development and many more.

If you are beginning to explore and planning to start your own YouTube channel vlog, blog or Facebook page to share your unique or helpful ideas, there’s no other time to start but now. The most difficult part will be in the beginning. But once you get into groove, things will improve and get better. Just believe yourself you can do it. Believing in yourself means having faith in your own capabilities. It means believing that you CAN do something — that it is within your ability. When you believe in yourself, you can overcome self-doubt and have the confidence to take action and get things done.
Hey everyone, Rye here of Get Back to basics. In this Blog, I wanna share my perspective about The Law of Attraction principle or theory. Do you believe in this? Let’s find out and check this out.
First, let’s understand what the Law of Attraction is first.
In google search results it says “It is the ABILITY to attract into our lives WHATEVER we are focusing on.”
Also, according to Wikipedia, it states that “it is a BELIEF that a positive or negative thoughts bring positive or negative experiences into a person’s life.”
For me, I love the idea wherein if we think a thought, we speak a word, the universe will listen and respond to us by giving what we desire.
BUT… I don’t believe on this theory alone because in reality it is missing something very important and also implies denial of any negative thoughts which can work against you.
I think, we make a little change to the theory so that we can implement it in our lives successfully. I would change this as “The Law of Attraction with Action”.
There’s this favorite quote of mine from Mahatma Gandhi that says “Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your habits, your habits become your values, your values become your destiny”
I think this great quote from Mahatma Gandhi compliments the Law of Attraction theory. I believe that we create our reality and results by the internal choices we make, including how we respond to our thoughts.
We definitely cannot rely on the theory alone, this can be effective only if we enforce and commit to ACTIONS in whatever we think us to have or become.
To put this in another perspective, ACTIONS will be the energy or gas that fuels the Law of Attraction. In other words, we cannot solely focus on our thought intentions, we must also take action and make a habit of those actions by doing whatever must be done to reach that goal in reality.
Remember this, “The Law of Attraction with Action” is mastering our thoughts and focus in what we really desire and take actions habitually. Then after following this, we will surely start to see amazing results that the universe may bring to us.

In this vlog, I’ll share to my fellow YouTubers my Biggest Plan if ever I will be able to knockdown a Success in the world of YouTube like the legendary ones I look up to such as Mr. BEAST and PewDiePie (international), and Raffy Tulfo in Action or RTIA and Ranz Kyle & Niana (local). You can be like them, we will never know but it is always good if we have a plan on how to deal with this HUGE SUCCESS currently in the WORKS.
The first step will start with asking these questions: What will you do?What is your plan? I think if you dream big, it is better if you plan big as well. I want to share with you guys now what I’ll do when that BIG time comes: (also this would serve as a reminder for me as well) so yeah, lets go check on my list.
#1 Be Humble
Huge success, oftentimes can change a person’s attitude, becoming arrogant or braggart. For me this is one very important thing I have to see for myself that I stay grounded in whatever success I can attain in this YouTube journey. I always believe that humility can make a person stay successful because they understand that this achievement is a blessing, not thinking less of myself though, but more of thinking myself less.
#2 Allocate My Earnings
If the time comes that I am earning a lot, I need to manage my money wisely. I’ll create a list where my money will go such as the following:
A portion goes to improving my YouTube channel, like buying the best pc, software (for animation, video editing, etc.) and other tools that I will need for my animated vlog.
A portion goes to my family needs such as improving the house, getting a car, getting an insurance for everyone. And…
A portion goes to the family savings
Lastly, a portion goes to my charity savings where I would also use this in times there’s a calamity or a disaster in my country so that I can use it to help people in need.
I’ll celebrate my YouTube success a little with my family and friends which is a way of telling thanks those who supported me all the way… And then
#4 Continue Working and Improving
Achieving top success doesn’t mean I’ll stop. There will be another mountaintop, greater heights to reach for sure. I’ll keep working hard and improving as a YouTuber. I might reveal my real identity in the future probably.
OR NOT… (just kidding)
Seriously, we can contemplate and reflect within ourselves about our accomplishments and next goals to reach.
#5 Share the lessons and experience
Sharing is caring. Sounds cliché but this is totally true. My knowledge comes from many people I looked up to in this life. I wouldn’t be what I am if not to them. So for me, this is like paying it forward where It affects people in a good way because if you do something good to someone, they will feel loved and most likely do something good for someone else. I think this is what life is all about honestly.
#6 Share the blessings
I live simple and I don’t want anything too fancy in my life. Everything in excess is I plan to share with others in many ways which I can share in another vlog topic.
#7 Keep the balance
Reaching greater heights of success can bring a lot of noises in life and it is important for me to keep balance in all aspects of my life: relationships, work, fitness and health, and emotional well-being.
Post parting words
This is all on my list so far which I am committed to do when I achieve success in the world of YouTube. If you are a newbie vlogger like myself, what would you do? Let me know in the comment section.
