The Ryzen Gaming Laptop affordable and the best gaming Laptop

The best gaming laptop deals always save you a few bucks and give you power in your hands. So I have decided to start posting weekly roundup of best tech gadgets and resources for the geeky and techy people out there looking for best deals when considering purchasing a new one.

So I scored the internet and came across some great deals and pricing that I could find when it comes to making the final decision when purchasing Ryzen gaming laptop.

Ryzen Gaming Laptop cheap and affordable

Ryzen Gaming Laptop cheap and affordableAcer Nitro 5 15.6-inch gaming laptop | $699.99 at Amazon


The specs inside this machine may well make that wait worth it. There’s a massive 512GB SSD inside this machine, with a quad-core 9th generation i5 processor, 8GB RAM and GTX 1650 graphics on offer as well. That’s a configuration we rarely see at this price point.

 

Do bear in mind that I do not own this laptop myself partly because that I am more of a design oriented person and this review is solely for the gaming laptop if you are considering to buy one. I will be sharing links to where you can either get more info from or just get an idea for the overall decision making when purchasing your next machine. I am just going to save you a bit of time scouring the internet.

So ill be discussing two main elements of this specific Ryzer Gaming Laptop the screen and the keyboard as they are going to be our main focus.

$699.99 Ryzen Laptop Review

The Screen

The Screen is 15.6” 120Hz full HD (1920×1080) kind of what you expect in this price point. The screen itself is not that bright enough when I asked a couple of gamers who prefer a brighter one. For example if you are playing a game that requires tracking people of looking for gems and resources, you would really want screen to be a bit brighter.

Now this may work for some but not for me ! I would have liked to have a brighter screen but it is ok on the other hand because it is ok with the price this machine is available in which is great. Now the screen brightness and the contrast is not much of a big issue, maybe since I have an eye for graphic design this is something I am considering but oh well this can be forgiven not a problem.

The Keyboard and trackpad review for gaming

There are two points about keyboard that I will discuss the keyboards itself and then the trackpad so lets get on with it.

The Keyboard.

Just like the last years model this one is quite uncomfortable one, it is infact sort of the same as the last model. when it comes to playing with the WASD keys they are quite cramped together maybe because of the wrist support that could have helped. BUT having said that again maybe it is my own preference and might not matter to many. This might also differ for person to person depending upon their hand placement for me mostly I access keyboard right from the front . But if you are pressing them with shift keys this might become awkward positioning ofcourse.

The Trackpad

Again the WASD keys and a few more when being used the left hand comes over the track pad…. hmmm… not what I wanted and was keen on. You might want to disable it in order to enjoy the keyboard fully. I would have loved if the trackpad was towards a bit right as it is shifted to the left. But again this is my own point of view, your own usage might differ.

The Specifications

So now looking at the specifications you will be amazed with the features this has at this price point. below are some of the specifications as mentioned at the Amazon Store

  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB graphics (base: 1395MHz, Boost: 1560MHz, TDP: 50W)
  • Quad-core AMD Ryzen 5 r5- 3550h processor
  • 15.6” 120Hz full HD (1920×1080) IPS-type display
  • 256GB NVMe SSD | 8GB DDR4 RAM | Windows 10 Home
  • Gigabit wave 2 Wi-Fi 5 (802.11AC)
  • Durable gaming laptop with MIL-STD-810 military standard construction
  • Dual fans with anti-dust technology | RGB backlit Keyboard rated for 20-million keystroke durability

Additional Perks

You can two ram slots and you can add up another one yet the battery is small it is a 48 hour battery I would have loved to have a longer running one. Love the way the main power socket is at the back so you can keep the cables out of your path with ease.

How to Setup a Blog and Make Money in 2020 for $1

How to Setup a Blog and Make Money in 2020 for $1

Do you need to set a blog and earn money? Or want to set up an online store to sell your products from?

How will you feel that finally, you were able to own a website helping you not only to make money online blogging but also present your work out in the world. Maybe sell your digital products online or maybe even your physical products?

Finally, create a storefront and start selling from this? Finally, be able to lead clients and direct them to your own self-hosted platform. All this and more like your own pretty domain name, Set up email addresses, newsletters and more.

in this posts series, I will be sharing with you how you can do it on your own website or blog within next 24 hours.

We are going through times when that is allowing us to stop and look at our surroundings. Raise questions about who we are being, what is important and what needs to be done with. Maybe you are still struggling with your surroundings and they are keeping you busy enough that you don’t even get the time to reflect on who you are being and which direction to take.

For me this time out by Universe has given me a safe place to go within and shed out the unwanted. These unwanted items not only include, purging my home, decluttering my surroundings but also in a good way I am exploring new ways to expand my online business and work. I see so many people going through all of this as well.

Some have been busy all their life doing 9 to 5 jobs, they don’t even love or are passionate about. It is like dragging themselves to work every day, going through the workload, communicating and frustrated with a nosey boss. And now when they got the time out they are wondering if this is how they want to spend the rest of their lives?

Maybe you too in a state similar to this, maybe you were also forced to sit at home, maybe you too are wondering what if there is something else to life. Maybe you are struck by fear and are not able to do anything creative. It almost feels like running in a hamster wheel. Forced life, but for how long? will this ever end? you love drawing, maybe gardening, maybe painting, do you really have to wait for your retirement to do what you love doing?

This pivot may mean

  • Leaving your job and facing some uncertain times and wondering if you can too make money by blogging
  • Getting overwhelmed wondering ok here I am and I would love to spend more time doing what I am passionate about but how to begin where to start from and what are my next steps.

I am passionate about helping other creative women find their inner Creative Diva and start earning a living doing what they love by blogging and selling their creativity online.  And all of this starts from taking a single decision and setting a strong intention. If you are committed enough to make a change in your life, if you want to be one of the few who are strong enough to take a stand for their desires then allow me to take you by the hand and over the next few posts help you create a business doing what you love.

So in this post, I will share the initial tasks you can take right now starting today towards a strong business foundation. by setting up an online shop in less than 24 hours.

Set up an online store in 24 hours or less

Step 1:

Get a domain name & Hosting

If you already have a domain name then it is great ! time saved ! if not here are. A domain name is a name that people can type in their address bars to find you. This post of mine intends to set up a website for you in 24 hours so I will not write tons about each and every step but I will guide you towards your end goal, that is …. an online shop!

CLICK HERE TO Get a Domain name + Hosting for only $1 

I am recommending 1 and 1 Hosting for this because it is the cheapest solution out there right now, you begin with paying $1 for the Domain plus hosting for the first month and then $4 onward. For the domain name, $1 for the first year is included. I signed up for the business package and have hosted two of my website paying $8.

When you are paying this low you are lowering the mental barrier of setting up a website being expensive just go ahead give it a try what is there to lose? $1 for the domain name for the first year is ample time for you to know if you are committed to running a website.

Other recommended providers are Godaddy (Starting from $5 ) Blue Host ($3.95 free domain for first year and hosting)

What is the difference between the domain name and hosting?

I often get asked this question, believe it or not, this confusion even stops many of you from taking the first step. So a domain name is like getting a URL that can be typed in the search bar, and hosting is a place where you will upload your files to. These files will include your website data, product images, blog images files, and similar.

For people to access your website, they will be landed on a webpage hosted on your hosting provider. it will show the files you stored in the form of a homepage blog or similar.

Step 2

Installing WordPress on your hosting space.

Consider your hosting space ( which you paid $1 for the first month) links to your domain name Here is how you will do it inside 1and 1 hosting. But you will see that most of the hosting companies have similar Cpanels. Cpanel is the dashboard from where you can take various tasks from inside the hosting provider.

After you signup, you will log in to your Cpanel ( Hosing Dashboard) here is how this looks like

Learn the basics of settng up a wordrpress shop online great for creative business owners and artists and creators.

You have icons presented in front of you with managing your domain name, creating email addresses, installing websites and stores, managing your hosting space, and your billing and account information. If you click on domains you will be able to see the domain name that you just purchased.

But to set up your WordPress Shop and blog you will head on over to the search bar on top of the screen and type install WordPress.

Give your website a title and click Create Website. Something Like ” Julias Art and Workshops” or whatever, don’t worry you can change it later at any time.

Type in the administrator login ( the login you will use to access your WordPress installation) I would recommend keeping it long and not including word admin in it. Here is a screenshot of how this looks like

Next, you will be presented with an option to install a managed WordPress just click on the second option

Next, you will be asked to link a domain name to the WordPress installation. From the dropdown choose the domain name that you just registered with.

And you are done!

Type the domain name in the URL space in your browser and your website is online!

PS: In my next post we will explore WordPress backend install a theme and install the necessary plugins to get your shop or store online!

I remember back in 2002 when I really got into blogging, I loved what I did so much so that I would wake up at 4 AM to write my next blog post. I had no idea why I HAD to blog but I did. At that time, I had gone through a phase of trying to find adobe illustrator tutorials as I was starting out. I couldn’t find any online.

So what I did was to turn to help section of Adobe and then create something. That’s how I learned. But once I was confident enough and I even started to sell stock illustrations online I knew that there are others like me in the initial stages of learning illustrator who needed help.

So I started writing illustrator tutorials. What I am trying to say here that I had the passion and drive to create and I was coming from a place of giving. As a result what I received was a sense of achievement, feeling of being in the flow where I was just doing what I loved to do. And that drove me to wake up early when my little one was asleep and write out my next piece of content.

Hence flow to me is a combination of doing what you love doing, having a passion for it, and added drive of bringing joy to someone else’s life as well. At that time I was living in a shabby house and I was barely making any return on what I was doing. But… I was free from a weight of fear.

Fears………….. Ah… that’s what takes you away from the flow.

Fear of tomorrow

Fear of what might come

Fear of what might happen

Fear of loss

Fear of scarcity

Fear of lack

Fear of loosing

and the list goes on and on.

Fast forward life got busy I “burdened” myself with many fears as a result

I lost the passion to create something for free! because I was overcome by “need” to make ends meet, I started weighing if my actions were in fact bringing me cash in return. I stopped doing things that brought me “joy” and started focusing on things that brought be “money”.

I went into the mode of hustle and I went head-on in the mode of grind.

As a result, I was overwhelmed, overcome with fear in many shape and form, my art was not bringing me joy.

I was lucky that I noticed that, I saw what I was doing and started looking for ways to overcome that and return to my “Zero State” yes that’s where all the joy happens that is where are is created from that is where you get to make money…….

So what is a “Zero State” ? And how can you be in one?

It took me time to come back to zero state, lots of journaling, lots of forgiving, lots and lots of giving up and surrendering. I can better explain this with an example.

When we come into life, we are at a zero state, that is a complete zero state, you don’t owe anything to anyone, you don’t fear anything, you don’t have to do anything, there arent many things that you should do.

So all the Owe someone, forgive someone, have to and shoulds and shouldn’t s aaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllll it does is to take you away from your state of joy and a state of being in flow. To achieve this I use journaling, and that is how I come back to state of joy and I wouldn’t be wrong to say that this is how I make money!.

PS : I just added how to come out of fears workbook to the resource library

So my question to you today is are you in your “Zero State”?

Have you ever experienced it?

Have you experienced flow?

How will you describe it?

Hit reply and let me know!

MARCH UPDATE : Life of an Artist

This past week I had been down with the flu. Although I was trying to keep myself content and high vibe, at one point I found myself in a panic mode.

There is too much media noise and then there is so much grief and fear around the world. And when you are a sensitive person like me, the fear and panic will rise at some time or another. We quarantined ourselves even before the virus spread reached an alarming number.

Which means all the more a solid reason to go inwards.
Revive old soul connection if needed. And review your place in the world.

As outbound flights were stopped, so did our Product based business of Wall Decals and Stickers. This nearly threw me banging my head on a wall.

I am guilty of not giving full attention to my digital products and graphics store. For the last couple of days, I reviewed my business direction and the dimensions it needs to spread into.

I revisited my Goals and the tasks that needed to be accomplished. And I did a lot of work!.

So the good news that came out of it is that my store is being stocked up!

I have been adding cliparts for easter, st patrick’s day cliparts, Art Prints and more. The current condition of the world, which ofcourse was unexpected gave me all the more reason to keep working on the digital aspect of my business.

I have read and seen so many graphic designers and artists going jobless during this time, which makes me think how I can help them in anyway. For now I have my Start Selling Art Online Ecourse ( which is free) to help you get started right now because it is never too late.

 

Now here are some of my actions that I took in the last few months which maybe you will find helpful in some way.

 

 

Got myself Ultimate Bundle Genius Bloggers Toolkit ( The best decision)

Yes I bought myself Ultimate Bundle’s Genius Bloggers Toolkit. This is one of the best decisions I made!. The bundle is jam packed with courses from some of the leaders in the industry. There is always room for learning and once you are doing business online you must keep yourself updated.

After learning so many things from so many people my mid is buzzing with ideas and ways to take my business to next level. I will be sharing my experience whenever I can through this blog and through my email.

Moved my Email list to SendPulse 

I have been using Mailerlite for a while now and I even mentioned it in one of my posts earlier about alternate email provider to mailchimp . But since I noticed that my email list needs cleaning up with so many people who signued up for Free 75+ Cliparts but never even opened their emails after that. The email list grew so much!. While there is no point in investing in upgrading the account if there is no return on investment.

Anyway I moved my list to Sendpulse I am loving the ease of use and how it is free upto 2400 email subscribers and even after that the cost is not as high as Mailchimp or mailerlite.

2020 New Year Resolution ideas Start With Reviewing 2019 Here is how !

2020 New Year Resolution ideas Start With Reviewing 2019 Here is how !

I just cant believe that this is 5th year in a row that I have recreated the Year in Review Planner and upgraded it for a brand new year ! . This exercise is so much powerful that it literally has the power of changing your course of life. Once we take time to look back and review the past year having a birds eye view our next steps clearer and easier to understand.

This about it ! if you have a GPS system of your life , or you are seeking a way to get to a destination in your life you need to enter two positions. Where you are coming from and where you are going . Now ofcourse you have dreams wishes and desires that define your big vision and that define who you are. But when you stop and look back you will find Gold nuggets that will help you understand which path best suits you.

The past is not there to linger upon and it is not there to fret and cry about our mistakes , it is there to define what is coming our way and what can be ahead. When you review your past your decisions of past become lessons of future. Your failiures become your lessons and your wins help you discover who you are and what you can be.

For the last 5 years I not only review my year at the end but I also take care to use the same process to review each quarter.

Over the years many have downloaded and use the same year in review planner and they have totally loved how it sets the foundation for the coming year.
