Although they’re painstakingly obvious, I used to neglect these for the longest time too

Grooming… I feel like a lot of men think grooming is a feminine thing and therefore makes them less manly. That’s bullsh**, of course. I pretty much guarantee you that every attractive man you’ve seen in Hollywood has at least a basic grooming routine in place. Let’s take a look at 5 grooming tips for men!

#1 Get a haircut… regularly

Said it before and I’ll say it again: A haircut is one of the easiest ways to instantly look fresh, stylish, and presentable. In these days, it’s hard to get a regular cut. So this tip might be hard to follow right now. I…

This won’t be the only redesigned iMac this year

Disclaimer: I don’t find the new 24” iMac ugly. But apparently, many of you do. That’s totally fine. You’ll get another new iMac later this year. Just wait!

April event 2021

As you might know, yesterday Apple unveiled a few new products at their spring event. AirTag, new iPad Pros, an upgraded Apple TV 4K, and yes the new and extremely colorful iMac. This 24” version comes with the M1 chip that already powers the latest generations of MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. And while many people thought the iMac would get a more powerful M1X chip, the M1 does make…


If you neglect this important hierarchy

The most valuable asset of a blogger is high-quality content. Wouldn’t you agree? This is why people love your articles. As they should! But high-quality content is not the most important aspect of being a blogger. Not at first! What is it, then? Let’s explore!

Now is the time to start writing about these topics

Medium has a trending section, did you know that? You’ll find an excerpt of that on your homepage. There is also a whole section devoted to popular stories. In this article, however, I want to get into the most trending tags and topics on Medium 2021. Let’s begin!

What’s a tag anyway?

I hope you know. But if you don’t, tags are a key aspect of any Medium story. A tag is basically a topic that you assign to your story. You can choose up to 5. You’ll do that in the top right corner within the Medium editor under “Change tags”.

Potentially the most underrated missing feature in web design

I’ve run into this issue countless times. And I am not even a full-time web developer. I do this for fun. But the absence of this feature is blatantly obvious. Or is it just me? Let’s explore!

HTML5 is awesome

Let me start this post with a quick disclaimer: HTML5 is awesome! So is CSS. I have no complaints about the general state of web technologies and web development. What we’re nowadays able to do with only HTML and CSS is outstanding, compared to even a few years back when much of this was merely possible through Javascript or other technologies.

To the point

In all…


I recently wrote a quick post on “Why you should be writing on Medium right now (2021)”. It was quite well-received and I got a lot of questions on that topic. In this post, I want to go over a few things any new writer on Medium should do.
