Why in the world would you be reading an article about why I and a few select writers create articles repeatedly on Medium? The answer is:
The number one reason why individuals fail online is because they keep publishing the same content. Let’s ignore the search engines for a moment and focus on the individual who reads your article.
Let’s assume you have an individual that has read one of your articles and found it interesting enough to follow you. Three weeks later that individual returns and sees the same content that was published on their first visit. What happens then? …
Creative artwork expressed through photography is one of the most beautiful forms of art a photographer can exhibit. It’s hard to believe that in 2021 there are still skeptics out there believing that photography is not a form of art. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Photography is definitely a form of art expressed through pictures.
The role of a landscape photographer is to record a scene that brings attention to the photograph. However, most photographers fail to capture that special moment to show what it really felt like to be out there surrounded by the beauty of nature.

With that also comes the problem that with so much new content uploaded each day, someone most likely has already covered on the subject that you want to write about. However, all is not lost. Your job is to do more research on that subject and improve upon it in your own words. …
It’s been stated many times that you should “write about what you know”. It’s also been stated that following that course of action will condemn you to a life of boredom. That means no matter how hard you try, you’ll never advance beyond your current limitations. That doesn’t sound encouraging, does It?
It’s also been suggested that you should write about what you’re passionate about, something that has meaning to you.

What separates Berlin from other great world cities? Well, let’s begin with the Berliners themselves. Their friendliness and charm brings a certain element to the character of the city.
