How To Start A Blog?



So how do we blog?

1.Niche
2. Name
3. Platform
4. Design
5. Plugins
6. Content
7. Earn


1. Niche

Before you create your platform you will have to decide on what niche you would be comfortable writing in. Examples of the niche will be food, travel, fashion, beauty, fitness and a lot more.

Specific niche can help you to come up with a good name for the blog. For example, I preferred blogging about versatile stuff hence I named my blog as Crappy Blogger so it will be general.

2. Name

When you want to name your baby you will see the sense behind it. Same goes to your blog. Your blog's name should give a mild hint of what your content is going to be. 

I will say please keep it simple and easy to be remembered. Don't choose a name where I have to jot it down every time I am going to say it.

It has to be very catchy as well. Here is the reason behind why your blog name is very important. People shouldn't ramble about how they can't search for your blog.

That can bring your blog to a halt even before you start. Click here to find "How To create Blog's Name."

3. Platform

 Before you start a blog, you will need a platform to blog on.

Blogspot? Wordpress? It is solely up to you which platform you would love to use.

Based on my experience I find Blogspot to be user-friendly but their theme is not my favourite. On the other hand, Wordpress is a little tough to be used at first but their theme is very classy and elegant.

4. Design

Now, this is where you will go all haywire! I took 2 years to find my current theme.

If you purchase your life will be a lot easier but if you prefer designing it yourself then it is going to be really difficult!

You can also purchase the themes from the blog designers. There are also free templates.

Here are Types of Themes which you can refer to when you want to design your platform.


5. Plugins

Plugins are ways to extend and add to the functionality that already exists on your platform.

In my platform, I kept it simple and clean so I have very minimal plugins like the Facebook page plugin and Instagram feed plugin.

You can add a lot of fun plugins though.


6. Content 

Yes, after creating your platform now you have to focus on your content.

It is always up to you on how you want to present your content to your readers.

7. Earn

Yes, it is possible for you to earn through a blog. For this, you have to run your blog like as if it is a business and at the same time have personal contents of yourself so it won't be too commercialized.

Read here "Ways to Make Money Blogging"

I have an experience of working with this brand where they promised me to share my blog post on their facebook page as a compensation for an article but they didn't.

They copy and pasted my article on their website and posted that on their facebook page. I will never forget the lame excuse they give me to why they did not share my article on their page.

I felt cheated big time, to be honest. Of course, I asked them to remove my content as they didn't even ask for my permission. Never will I ever work with that unprofessional brand again.


Overall, do not give up. Work till your page view increases on its own. Until people discover you through your write-ups. Until people know your blog name better than your own name!

Vijay Prakash ~ I Will Give Up The Day I Die, Not Till Then

Photo Credits: Mojo Projects 

I tried to dig out the secret of Vijay Prakash's success by questioning on how he embraces failures in life and his answer will surprise you for sure.

In your entire life journey have you ever endured a point where you felt like giving up on music?

I have never heard this question before and my answer will be I will give up the day I die, not till then.

Because music is the reason why I am born in this lifetime so the day I decide music is not going to be a part of me then I see myself as dead. So I don’t think it will ever happen. As long as I am breathing music is in my breath.


Have you ever felt devastated while working?

No, I think it's about how you see life. How you see every day and the moment you realize that it is a predesigned beautiful journey that you're walking then you're just walking.

The ups and downs are just like an experience rather than hurdles. So I don’t think I was ever devastated. Every day is inspiring. Every difficulty is inspiring. Every reward is inspiring. Every moment is inspiring.



When a song didn't reach as well as you expected how do you perceive it?

The rewards are never in your hands. All we can do is every song that comes to me  I will do it with 100% honesty.

I have a great experience when the reward has been huge for example I was doing advertising for 15 years singing a lot of singles and Jai ho happened which got the Oscars and grammy’s  I am part of that song.

 And being on grammy’s stage I felt like God has given me reward for 15 years of hard work. So you know no hard work goes waste. No effort goes waste.

You may not see the results immediately for that particular job but everything is a fixed deposit that keeps growing.

You will suddenly get a matured award for that so I don’t ever get affected actually with the rewards. But I have got enough rewards.

God has been kind. I have won so many awards so all that tells me that the journey has been worth walking.


Jai Ho fame Vijay Prakash is very certain about what he wants in life and he is walking towards that direction. He breaths through music. He has not thought of a second option to what he loves the most.

It's simply amazing to see how these icons are so wise and the way they perceive life is unbelievable.  

It can't be denied that a strong mindset is in need to reach great heights in life.

This story inspired me. Did it inspire you? Share your experience.

Also not forgetting, thank you so much Mojo Projects for giving me a great experience to interview these amazing people. 

Never in my dreams, I imagined that I will interview these amazing icons.

Went to Lucky Cuisine for lunch and boy we are lucky or what! Thye launched new dishes in the menu and this time they focused on noodles.

So here I will introduce few choices of their new menu as we didn't have the time to stay for a longer time to try all their new dishes.

I haven't get the name of the dishes to be honest but I am rather proud of how the photos turned out. I am going to attach them all here.

Yes, I am a First Bench Student but..


Most people think that I usually sit in the front row in class because I am some kind of a nerd and I love to study. Today, the truth will be out!

1. I sit in front so I don't have to study.

 Most of you would have thought that students who sit in front or the first bench in class are pretty smart. Even most lecturers feel the same and so when they come up with the question, I am the last person they will ask. Therefore, I don't bother studying before class.

2. To skip sleeping

I don't want to sleep in the class when the session is taking place. I GOD DAMN paid $ 450.00 for 1 subject and you think I WILL SLEEP IN THE CLASS? Oh, forget it!

3. To stalk the lecturer

So I can observe the way the lecturer talk and the way they conduct themselves. Even though, most of them talk like a train where I don't understand a thing but I actually observe on how they survive being bullied and trolled by students. So when I am a lecturer in future I can apply the same technique. I only focus when a lecturer gets bashed by students by the way.



4. I am short

Or should I say that I am petite so I will feel better? *Nope, I still don't feel better about me being short. LOL! Since I am short so I hate it when other tall students block my view. Like, come on!


5. So nobody irritates me 

When I am concentrating, I hate it when people talk at the back of me or even in front of me. It is super annoying! I would have killed them a thousand times in my head whenever it happens. GET A LIFE, PEOPLE!

6. Attendance list

I always forget to sign the attendance sheet so if I am in front I get to sign it first. Some lecturers of mine do care about the attendance and I don't want them to mark my assignment after analysing the attendance. I am already getting only half mark most of the time. -_-


7. So the lecturer won't ask me any question. 

Most of the time my mind is blank in class cause I am in the middle of to sleep and to pretend to focus. So when the lecturer asks me what is 1+1, I will just stare at her face without realising that she is actually talking to me.

8. So I can stay away from Instagram and Facebook for at least for 1 hour straight.

I always hope that after that 1 hour of updating a picture on Instagram, I will get like at least a million likes but yeah maybe in my dreams.

9. So I don't have to socialise. 

I hate talking when I am in the class because I am always in a sleep mode. The class is so fucking cold as well so what do you expect right?


10. Here comes the ugly truth!

 I sit in front because I am blind! Okay fine, I can't see the slides clearly and I wear glasses while I am in class. Worst is when I forget my glasses. Screwed big time!

Cré Arts Asia, Southeast Asia’s Largest Modern Circus Troupe to Perform at KLPAC


Yes! Cré Arts Asia, Southeast Asia’s largest modern circus troupe, will be performing for the first time in Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) from 29 September to 1 October 2017.

The three-day performance dubbed Cré or ‘earth’ in Old Irish, promises spectacular displays of gravity-defying performances and extraordinary feats of the human body, all set within stunningly beautiful backdrops that are a mainstay of contemporary performing arts.



As its namesake suggests, Cré is primarily themed to showcase the beauty of Mother Earth, interpreting the natural elements of air, water, earth, and fire through the use of the human body as a medium.

Throughout the course of the show, the audience can look forward to breathtaking aerial acrobatics, contortions, mesmerizing dance performances and much more.

Cré Arts Asia is a collaboration between two of Malaysia’s leading home-grown performing arts studios namely, Viva Circus, an award-winning physical arts theatre company; and Psycusix, Malaysia’s leading modern and contemporary circus performing group.



Chris Lo, Event Director of Creative Events Solution Sdn Bhd, the organizer of Cré, said, “The talents that are on display at Cré are truly world-class. In fact, some the performers featured have won several international accolades and have performed at renowned venues across the world.”

“The experience and expertise of Viva Circus and Psycusix in putting up a quality performance that comes with both the thrills and the depth in story-telling are also second to none. With both physical arts powerhouses coming together, Cré is indeed a must-not-miss experience that is suitable for all. Families, especially those with young kids, will find the show highly entertaining and meaningful,” he added.

Cre Arts Asia will be donating part of the proceeds from ticket sales to International Medical University Malaysia (IMU) Chariofare, the largest fundraising event at IMU.



Tickets for Cré are available for RM98 (Fire), RM128 (Water) and RM168 (Earth). Tickets for kids below 12 years of age are available for RM68 (Water & Earth Only). Fire seats are free-seating while Water & Earth seats are numbered.
