Top 6 Online Tools That'll Make You A Better Blogger 1

Blogging is all about creativity and for people that are smart. There are many tools to help you become a better blogger. Most of these tools  pushed me to write more and rely less on rewriting a content I read previously. It has helped me develop a writing style unique to me. It also helps me make my blog better.

Here’s my Top 6 list of tools that’ll make you a better blogger.

Blog Post Title Generators

The greatest problem bloggers face is producing enough original content. We’re humans and not machines so it’s quite normal for us to run out of ideas on what to write about. This is where blog title generators come in. Blog title generators generally let you type in the keyword you want to write about.

Answerthepublic.com is one of the best title generator tools I have used. This tool fetches and gives you title suggestions that are based on visualizations after you type in a keyword.

It can  break down listings of keywords to three different parts:

Questions: what, who, when, why?

Preposition: for, like, with

Alphabetical: keyword + a, keyword + b

With this tool, you can also get a ton of keywords that you can easily sprinkle throughout your post and get more traffic.

There are also other sites like AnswerThePublic but they work in an entirely different manner.
Here are some of them you can look them up on Google:

LinkBait
Impact Blog Title Generator
SEOPressor Blog Title Generator

EMV Headline Analyzer

EMV means  Emotional Marketing Value. This helps you to know how your post title relates to your readers mind. In humans, decision making is highly influenced by emotion . This tool helps you check the emotion weight of your blog post title.

It’s not as colorful as the other tools but it’s very easy to use and works perfectly. All you need to do is type in the headline and choose an appropriate category. You will get an EMV score that defines the emotional credibility of your headline.

If your post ranks above 50% it’s considered the very best. So, if you have anything within that range, you are doing great.

BuzzSumo

This is another one of my favorite tools. When you input a URL into Buzzsumo  it shows you a list of posts that have got maximum amount of shares in a given period. This way you know the potential of the topic and can track the posts on your blog or competitors blog with the highest shares. You can also track those who shared the post but that  feature is only available in the paid version.

It has a very easy to use interface that makes it one of my favorite tools. Not only does it give you  great data, it binds you to topical relevance. So, you don’t go off topic when searching for ideas.

PixaBay

Getting Stock Images for blog posts can be very difficult but pixabay changes all that. Sometimes while searching for images on Google you see an image that’ll be relevant to your post but it ends up having a watermark. Using watermarked images on your blog when the watermark isn’t yours really sucks and reeks of unprofessionalism.

Pixabay offers millions of high quality images free.Pixabay is a resource you can use without any copyright restrictions. You can use the images for whatever purposes you want, even for commercial purposes too.

One thing I really like about Pixabay is that there is no registration required. You can simply jump in, search for photos and begin to use them.

Canva

Canva’s only one call away and superman’s got nothing on it. Some times you need graphic designs for your next blog post but you don’t know what to do. Canva is the surest bet.

Canva is one of the most used photo editing tools in the world. From its drag and drop feature, the professional layouts and amazing design graphics, Canva has everything that you’ll need to create your own stunning images.
You don’t have to be a pro , Canva makes image creation super easy and fun.

With millions of images, hundreds of fonts, numbers of free icons and shapes, and amazing photo filters; Canva is without doubt one of the best.

Top 6 Online Tools That'll Make You A Better Blogger 5

Grammarly

I’ve come across many blogs, especially the one’s that are relatively new in the blogosphere with a very bad writing style and incorrect vocabulary.
Bad grammar kills your blog faster than a nuclear bomb can destroy a city. Bad vocabulary can induce sleep on someone that’s already slept for 24 hours.

Posts with many grammatical errors makes  readers lose interest in reading further. They might not even bother reading your future blog posts. So, make sure to perform quick grammar checks before publishing your posts.

Grammarly is one of the most used online grammar checkers. It checks for spelling, sentence structure, style, punctuation, alternatives, etc. All you need to do is copy your content and paste it into Grammarly’s online grammar checker.

That’s my top list. If you have any other tool you use, I’d love to check it out. Drop your comments.

Xiaomi Is Planning To Launch A Foldable Smartphone – Video

Published

Xiaomi is definitely one brand we should keep an eye on this year. After the successful launch of their Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 They have been working round the clock to release amazing devices and the awesome part about it is that they even have plans of coming to Africa permanently this year.

Xiaomi Foldable Phone

The first video of Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone was posted by popular twitter leakster @evleaks earlier in January but has now be confirmed by Xiaomi’s president Lin Bin, who tested out the device on camera.

The smartphone can be folded both sides, quickly converting the tablet to a portable android smartphone. This means that, when both sides aren’t in use what is left looks like a wide, smartphone-like device complete with curved edges on either side.

This is definitely a nice move from Xiaomi. I wonder what this device would be called. We’ll have to wait till the Mobile World Conference holding in February to find out.

Take a look at the video below and tell me what you think.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 15

Nokia 9 PureView which many have been waiting for happens to be one of the most important smartphones coming our way in 2019. As leaks have suggested, Nokia 9 PureView will be feature with five cameras on the rear, making it the world’s first smartphone with penta-lens camera setup. Here are all rumours we’ve heard surrounding Nokia 9 PureView, including its potential release date, features, specifications, and more.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 16

Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia 9 PureView is not going to look exactly  the company’s recently released lineup of devices, including the Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8.1. Instead, the upcoming smartphone will be heavily inspired by the original Nokia 1020 but with a contemporary design.

Nokia 9 PureView: Expected release date, specifications, price and more 17

However, the current design appears to be slightly different. While a penta-lens camera system continues to be there, one can also notice bezels above and below the screen. Meanwhile, the notch is missing from the recently leaked renders.

Nokia 9 PureView: Hardware, software

Nokia 9 PureView will be powered by the previous generation Snapdragon 845 processor and not the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset. We have also learned that the phone will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Nokia 9 PureView is also said to have an in-display fingerprint scanner, first for any Nokia-branded smartphone.The phone will run Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box. Nokia 9 PureView is code-named “Olympic”.

Nokia 9 PureView: Release date, expected price

Although not confirmed, Nokia 9 PureView might get launched sometime later this month. According to Nokia Anew’s sources, HMD Global plans to launch its next-generation flagship in late January. That would put the launch date after CES 2019 and before MWC 2019.
There’s no word at what the device might cost. Suffice to say, it will cost more than the Nokia 8 Sirocco, which was launched in India at Rs 49,999( #258,000 ).Given the Nokia 9 PureView will be the world’s first smartphone with a penta-lens camera setup, expect it cost even more.

Nokia 9 PureView: Penta-lens camera setup

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the Nokia 9 PureView will be its camera.Nokia 9 PureView with seven holes on the back of the phone, five of which house five camera lenses. The other two are for the LED Flash and proximity sensor. Each of the seven circular cutouts, arranged in what looks like a circle, appears to have the same size. Clearly, this penta-lens camera setup will be based on Zeiss’ multi-lens patented zoom camera tech. At the moment, it’s not clear how the five-lenses camera setup works.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon

Published

on

You probably don’t need telling that Android is a very powerful and versatile operating system but Google is working on something that might end up as the direct replacement  – Fuschia.

How Google Plans On Replacing Android With Fuschia OS Soon 18

In this post, I’ll be explaining why Fuschia may actually replace Android
Kernels
Kernels are the core of any operating system, they provide the basic mechanisms around which the os can be built. A lot of the problems Android faces today is as a result of the fact it was built around the linux kernel whicj was not originally intended for it. 
As a matter of fact,  Android OS was originally meant for digital cameras so on it’s core it isn’t exactly specialized for what a smartphone should do
So what about Fuschia?
Fuschia is based on a completely different Kernel with 2 key benefits.
1. It is designed with the smart connected feature in mind
2. It’s more specific in its code and can be built on a wide range of devices
This kernel is called Zircon .
 So what’s the benefit ?
The reason that Fuschia is powerful is that this kernel runs on completely everything from phones abd TVs to Fridges and traffic lights.
One OS for everything. As more devices enter people’s homes, this would mean seamless integration among devices.
Your music could switch to your speaker when you enter a room and continue in your car when you get in.
Also Fuschia would be built around the idea of voice commands. Less tapping , More talking.
Fuschia would also solve one of the major problems of Android which is Fragmentation.

Fragmentation
Fragmentation is the reason most Android phones don’t perform as well as their hardware is capable of.
This exists because Android is a bit of a mess. It has software, kernel and drivers all working together in a slightly different configuration on each device.
That’s why Google just can’t push an update to any device out there. These 3 aspects have to be decoupled manually.
Google has little control of how users experience Android on 95% of phones.
This is a problem because these OEMs don’t have an incentive to keep your device updated. They prefer you get a new device if you want to upgrade so they can make more money.
Fuschia is cleaner built with updates in mind. Fuschia would help Google regain control of the end user software experience.
Fuschia is also written on the Flutter software development kit which is important because this runs on Android too. This would make sure Android apps run on it. You don’t expect Google to start from scratch with the already vast library of apps and games available.

So the big question –
When will Fuschia Replace Android
Considering that brands always make the 10th version of their products seem like the peak of their current product line. Android 10 might be replaced by Fuschia OS.
If it’s not, then we should be looking at the next couple of years.

Unbelievable – Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks

Unbelievable - Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To  Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks 19
NCC has given MTN and Airtel approval to bar Glo and 9mobile customers from calling their network over failure to pay Interconnect Debt.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has granted disconnection approval to mobile network operators (MNOs) to disconnect owing colleagues over rise in interconnect debt and failure of the affected operators to pay.

Unbelievable - Glo, 9mobile, NTEL Customers To  Be Cut Off From Calling Other Networks 20

NCC has asked MTN, Airtel and IHS to disconnect, on partial basis, services to Globacom, Ntel (MNOs) and interconnect exchange points including Breeze, Exchange, Solid, Medallion and Niconnx.

The implication of this development is that over 35 millions of subscribers would soon start to experience service disruptions.

While the affected operators have between the next 10 and 21 days, starting from 18th Dec to make amends or risk disconnections,

The Commission also said it has approved the Disconnection of Ntel and Globacom from the facilities of IHS in accordance with Section 103 of the Nigerian Communications Act 2003 and the Guidelines on Procedure for Granting Approval to Disconnect Telecommunications Operators.

The Commission informed that 9Mobile, Smile and Swift are also to be disconnected from IHS facilities and ATC Wireless Infrastructure Limited.

“At the expiration of 10 days from the date of this notice, subscribers on the network of Ntel and Globacom will no longer be able to make calls to Airtel and MTN, but will be able to receive calls. Furthermore, Ntel and Globacom will be disconnected from the facilities of IHS.”

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court 21
A few weeks ago I made a post regarding Gionee’s financial woes being the possible reasons why we haven’t seen new phones from Gionee. In case you missed that post you can find it here.

The same day I made the post a Gionee Nigeria staff called me and made threats regarding the post saying they would take action against me for publishing such content which was quite laughable. I don’t take down content that is true to please any brand. I also believe he was quite oblivious of the current position of his employers so I would disregard the threat.

Gionee Mobile Is Officially Bankrupt As Company Files For Liquidation In Court 22

The news reaching me now is that the company has officially entered bankruptcy.

A court in Shenzhen has accepted the application for liquidation bankruptcy by Huaxing Bank. This may still turn into a company reorganization – Gionee hired restructuring consultants last week. Founder Liu Lirong thinks that the company can turn its fortunes around in 3-5 years.

However, Gionee owes a total of CNY 20.2 billion (around $3 billion) to 648 creditors. About half of the debt is to banks. Earlier this year the company failed to pay suppliers. Ad agencies haven’t been paid either.

The company’s money problem started when the founder and chairman Liu lost a CNY 1 billion bet in a casino.

Liu admitted in the interview that Gionee’s total debts amount to 17 billion yuan ($2,447,065,000), with 10 billion yuan($1,439,450,000) of this owed to banks, 5 billion yuan($719,725,000) to upstream suppliers and about 2 billion to advertising agencies.

If nothing spontaneous happens in 3 – 5 years and the executives can’t avoid gambling, this will be the end of Gionee Electronics and Smartphones.
