Towards Essentialism For This Blog

↪ On SummaryMaster51v, I had originally added a lot more gadgets using the Contempo theme. As a result, the fold (visible content before you scrolling) was filled with the Pages Tabs, and just a few lines of the Recent Post Title were visible on a smartphone.

So, for this blog, I will be trying to keep the things simpler. And from onwards, that blog has a Simple Theme too. It makes multiple posts and their previews visible directly at the fold.

Now, I have a site where all my important links are provided, with a clean interface, at bit.ly/site51v.

That's some excessive decluttering, but it feels nice. Sometimes, a few lines at the centre of the large negative space are more calming, than an abundance of the over-information and the hyper-detailing. I guess, similar to how the minimalist flat images load faster (for the same degree of compression), less is truly more, at the times.

As for this belated enlightenment about the necessity of keeping it simple, stupid-me; this is even more embarrassing when I recall the long post about Meaningless Work and Meaningful Art from that other blog. Actually, if I think about it now, don't the Long Posts and a blog titled as SummaryMaster51v seem quite contradictory and contrasting?

So, the joke is on me, after all.

Overthinking is Double-edged Sword, without Handle

↪ Detective's soul is within each of us. And thus, you cannot rest easy with an empty mind. I couldn't do it either. Thinking and questioning the possibilities is good till a safe limit. When you cross it, you suffer. We live in the age of over-information. Your device is full of Notifications. And the 'trending topics' never keep quiet. So, you can feel a Fear of Missing Out (FoMO). If you are young, the web won't let you rejoice the moment. In fact, I can tell you about certain 'friends' who exist for Selfies. And the hashtags. Of course, electronic devices have become our oxygen. So, nobody is innocent. One way or another, you'll need to rely on the internet, the media and the over-information. I'm no exception to this rule. Thus, I am nobody to blame you. You know. worrying about third-party judgements is pointless anyway. But our human body pays the price. Whenever you sacrifice your sleep or lifestyle, to allow the Notification to disrupt your

My Bad – I began writing as if it was all about money

↪ I forgot why I began writing such online content. Not in a literal sense, but I was distracted by my own thoughts. That much is true indeed. But thanks to some great fiction stories, I remember now. Yes, I started because this was fun. And it was a type of personal philosophical journey. The act of writing forces you to think about a topic with care. And with patience. Thus, you face the challenges. So, overcoming these hurdles, makes you a better person. At least, that was the original idea. Writing Services [Learn More] What we begin as a hobby, might have the potential to become an additional income source. Content writing, affiliate marketing and social media promotions are related with each other. However, once you start 'monetising' your online assets, you look at every content creation opportunity as a Monetisation Aid. So, the purity of your hobby gets diluted, by your own hands. Thanks to some brilliant stories, I have recalled the reasons behind my i

Freelancing is a Global Leap of Faith

↪ World Economy suffers when a few ideas gain too much traction. And as each country faces the unemployment dynamics, the freelancers grow. So, these rebranded Self-Employees increase each year. Thus, the world looks at the gig economy for enhancing the productivity. But every idea has multiple bittersweet sides. The culture of the 'freelancers' isn't any different. Race to the bottom Competitive environment helps you grow. Both as a professional, and as a human being. The line between Healthy Competition and the Cut-throat Rat Race, is blur. It's thin and almost invisible, like the light grey fonts on 'modern' websites. Even you want to read it, you can't succeed in this action. You know how the entire world is pursuing a Freelance or Self-employment route. As such, more people are available to work on a single project. And the Low Pricing Wars don't help either party. Still, the clients ar
