Stay tuned, I’m going to be reviewing the movie The Dark Tower this weekend. I only hope I’m not disappointed.








So when I first started my blog, I thought “Okay, this shouldn’t be that hard”. And as it turns out this is a little more complicated than I thought it would be. If you don’t already know, I use WordPress as my site creator and I have found it far too simple to use…if that makes sense. I’ll go into further detail in a second.


I had always wanted to create my own website with a blog and I had been meaning to do it for quite some time and finally got around to doing it. I technically started one with my mother but I don’t know if we’ll ever get around to agreeing on something.

So when I started my blog on WordPress I will tell you I chose the most basic plan (not the free one, but the next tier up). I didn’t realize that I would be getting exactly what I was paying for. I have no creative control over how my website is designed and as a person in visual arts it is just maddening. For now I have tried to convince myself that this is okay and that I can transfer to a host later and have more control and also monetize (I don’t make money on this site as of right now).

Creating this place where I can pour out all of my blocked up creative juices (and also maybe vent a little about the topics of my generation) has been so far great. I think it’s important to have goals when creating something like this and to stay positive. I don’t expect it to grow popular overnight or even this year, which is something I think everyone should come to terms with. If you read other articles or posts on other websites/blogs then you know they’re always telling you it’s a great to make money and blah blah blah. Well sure but what they don’t tell you is you have to work really hard at it. It’s not all cakes and rainbows. You have to be able to have enough time to post consistently and to know your market audience. I’m not saying, by any means, that I have hit gold and know exactly what I’m doing. I love the ability to grow and learn as much as possible so in a way I hope I never truly know everything there is about doing this. I hope that any audience I gain will continue to grow with me on our crazy journey through life.


P.S. I’m going to go into depth of the process of starting a website/blog with wordpress at a later date so stay tuned!

So I know that most of us out there have googled ways to make some extra money (I know I have) and there a million ways to do so. I want to talk about the truth behind online selling.

One of the number one ways that blogs and articles always tell you to make some extra money is by selling stuff online using websites like ebay or amazon. Even using apps like letgo. And perhaps ten years ago this would have been a substantial way to make a little bit of extra money but now it’s simply just not true.

I don’t know how many out there watched Netflix’s Nasty Gal tv show. It was a recent show based off a real person selling vintage clothes on ebay and making a killing. Of course the time frame in which she did so was early 2000’s. And the show has been since canceled because mostly the main character was unlikable. But I digress.

Back in 2007 it was very possible to have made some money but then the recession hit and less people were shopping online, even for deals. Most people were worried about losing their houses, their jobs, etc.  And now that we have seemed to climb out of it for the most part we’ve been able to spend more money and get back into debt all over again right? Well mostly true. We are spending money but here’s the thing. Our generation seems to be trying to make money rather than spend it unlike the generations before us. We can thank Baby Boomers and Generation X for the housing crash and of course the deficit and banking disasters. They don’t want to take the blame and that’s alright, I wouldn’t either and my parents are Baby Boomers and Generation X. Even though our parents and grandparents don’t see it or believe it, most of us are quite the hustlers. Always trying make that extra buck.

In one year I had worked six different jobs and went to school. Now I work three and go to school. But I have money problems that you wouldn’t believe from someone has young as my and one day we’ll talk about it so you don’t make the same mistake.

Let’s talk about ebay, because that’s really the one I understand the best. I started selling on ebay when I was twenty and wasn’t very good at it. I started to get back into it when I really fell into some money problems. Now the most recent thing people tell you is Disney VHS tapes are selling for a lot of money right? Well unfortunately this is simply not true. There are lot of people on ebay trying to sell their Disney VHS tapes for a lot of money and no one is bidding. Well it’s 2017 and no one uses VHS tapes so why would anyone purchase them, even if they are “vintage”.

So it’s impossible, of course, to know what will sell and what won’t because it changes based on trends and the time of the year. So I just want to clarify that isn’t an easy way to make money. It’s slow and time consuming and not a certainty. Right now Polaroid cameras are back and everyone wants the older real Polaroid camera’s now. I sold one myself (I wish I hadn’t now). It all depends.













So a lot of people out there will usually create a youtube channel in the hopes of making some easy money. Everyone knows that all of the “big” youtubers make probably too much money right? Well wrong in most cases, especially if they run their channel like a production company and have to pay editors, and artists, etc. Okay well that doesn’t guarantee you anything. You have to know how to market yourself and how to make really great content (or just keep people entertained). For myself, all of my subscribers are literally my friends. It’s not that I’m not posting and sharing and what not, but you have to have something someone wants to watch.

With youtube’s policy enforcement it’s been extremely difficult for anyone (including youtuber’s with millions of subscribers) to make any form of income. One of my favorite youtuber’s Rob is demonetized everyday for the kind of content he creates and had to create a Patreon account. But he has editors, co-writers, graphic artists that are involved in his channel so it was crucial. So if you’re thinking that creating a youtube channel to make a quick buck, let me stop you right there. It’s not easy, it really does entail luck and connections. You also always have to be on social media, which shouldn’t be hard for our generation, and putting your content out there.

Alright maybe your content is becoming successful and now people are watching it, but you’re still not making any income. This is so common I wish I could explain just how crazy it is. Instead I will direct you to youtube’s guidelines

Don’t be fooled, youtube has begun to make it extremely impossoble for creators to be…well creative.


P.S. Here’s some self advertisement for my own channel











JackI’ve been meaning to start my blog for a quite some time now and I’m finally getting around to it. I never realized just how much work it would actually be but I’m slowly getting there.

I just wanted to start my first post by saying “Hey, what’s up?” I’ll tell you a little bit about myself.

My name is Lea and I was born in Orlando, Florida. I have one sibling who is younger then me by seven years. I will be interviewing him for my next post and we’ll be talking about the younger generation and the expectations. I’m a theater arts major, my focus is in lighting design and minor in psychology. One day I will pursue my masters but as of right now I just want to finish what I started so long ago. Oh! I also am a youtube creator and will most likely be sharing all of my experiences with that here in the blog and will also talk about what it means to be creator and can/should anyone do it. (Please check out my channel)

My goal with this blog is to reach out and let other millennials know that they’re not the only ones struggling with life, it seems to be a common trait with us. I will be sharing my experiences of what to do and what not to do based off my own experiences and I hope that it will be helpful. I also have a page for recipes, most of us are too cheap to cook but every once and a while we need to try something different so I will be uploading recipe links and descriptions of how my process went.

I look forward to the journey this blog will take us on and can’t wait to get started!


P.S. That is my beautiful eight year old dog Jack in the picture, he says hello!

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
    work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    • January 1, 2018 at 7:56 pm

      Wow, no I have yet to have any problems with hackers but thank you so much for bringing it to my attention, I will be on the lookout. I think the only way I can think is if you are you using a hosting service, most hosting services actually provide help against hackers but at an extra cost of course. It might be worth it to look into it if it’s already been an issue. If you’re not using a hosting site, then I would recommend using one because I know it decreases your chances of being hacked simply because they would have to go through your host first.I hope that this was helpful!

    is lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you did,
    the net will likely be much more useful than ever before.

    Any tips? Bless you!

      Hi!! Welcome to Ruechaos, I’m glad you paid a visit. I started out on WordPress and then moved over to a hosting service and honestly it was the best decision I made for my blog. Paying for a hosting service is pricy but it is so much easier to design and make your blog exactly what you want. Please feel free to come back for any other questions, in fact if you come back I will make an entire post and lay out as much info as I can about my experience and advice.
