We know it by now. Great writing is not enough in today’s online world. With a mindblowing 7.5 million blog posts published each day, it’s basically impossible to be discovered through great writing only. That leaves us writers with three other options to get views.

I will focus on the third option here.


I’ve been writing on Medium for about 4 months now. So, I’m still a newbie…

Breaking gender roles in stereotypical relationship settings sounds easy. But it’s not. Not for all of us. Without realizing it, we can fall back into outdated societal paradigms.

Let me give you a personal example. When I was young and in a fresh relationship, I felt my manliness threatened by the thought of not being handy enough.

My girlfriend back in the day came from a very handy family. Her father knew everything, it seemed. So, what…

German poet and novelist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe once wrote:

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.

I don’t know if or how Goethe correlated peace and happiness, but in my estimation home is both. A place to find peace and happiness.

Spring has just ended. And with it, the season of cleaning. But it’s not too late for a good spring cleaning routine. We feel the desire to free ourselves from everything unnecessary, redundant, dispensable, and superfluous. From bad purchases, cramped cabinets, and dusty decoration. It’s not just the physical things though. Spring and summer with their warm days and flourishing nature invite our minds to recharge, to improve.

Leo Tolstoy wrote in “Anna Karenina”:
