In one month on Clubhouse, I managed to gain over 2,000 followers doing what I do for a living — talking and moderating rooms. I focused on one demographic and one language. I’ve only used Clubhouse so far with Arabic users and networks. I’ve yet to create English- or German-speaking rooms and connect with those on the new voice app.

Your Clubhouse profile is also connected to your Twitter and Instagram accounts. Therefore, Clubhouse can easily be used to funnel followers towards your social media profiles — those that you use to promote your online content.

You need to actively…


It prepares them for the future

No, the title is not weird. It is an actual practice that My wife and I do in our household.

Basically, we tax our kids’ allowance. We ask them to put some of their allowances in a family fund. A fund that we use to buy family-related items. In the same fashion, in which we pay our taxes based on our income.

It might sound weird to you (the reader), but we do not see it this way — we believe we are preparing them for the real world, and we teach them in an early stage the importance of…

I joined Clubhouse on January 27th, 2021, and it has been the best experience so far. I’ve talked in rooms with poets, startup incubators, news anchors, singers, producers, and songwriters.

In no app other than Clubhouse would I have even had the chance to talk to these people — oh, and they followed me on Clubhouse, and my two Instagram accounts too.

Currently, you can only join the app if you’ve received an invite. In its current stage, the app is full of early adopters. In the three weeks that I’ve been on Clubhouse, I managed to get 1,000+ followers…

The pandemic, which started in 2020 and continues it 2021 is annoying, to say the least. However, what happens if we turn off the negativity and focus on the positive for a while, what did we learn from the pandemic? And how did it change our perspective on life and our interactions with others around?

I’ve asked my better half, my friends, and myself the hard question; Can you tell me something good or positive that happened in your life in the pandemic? And each of them had something to say.

A quick reminder: We should know, understand, and acknowledge…

I’m not an expert on writing myself. Writing for me was a hobby that I adopted during the lockdown in 2020. I had a rough start on Medium in May, but soon after, I was able to find one of the right paths to develop my writings.

Ok! here is my story first, and after that, I’ll explain to you the steps to follow. I’ll try my best to make it as fun as possible — I promise.

I started writing on Medium in May 2020. I wrote only two stories in my first month; one story was published with…


A small story that affected my life

In no way is my experience significant or major as what we hear in the news and social media about racism or Islamophobia in other parts of the world. Nevertheless, this incident left me speechless for a while, and it made me think if I should stop speaking my own language in public.

I used to live in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates before I moved to Europe for college. In Dubai, I lived in a pleasant environment, and I had not a single interaction with racism or discrimination towards me.

In Summer 2002, we went for a vacation…

I’ve been on the Clubhouse app for a week now and I’m hooked.

I’ve received an invite to join the app from a friend of mine, and I immediately downloaded the app. Yes, the app is currently invite-only, and each new users get two initial invites. And guess what? People are selling the invites online because the demand to join the app is high.

The app is growing in popularity, and you might end up getting an invite pretty soon. …

I’ve been trying for the past two years to get my six-year-old interested in video games with no success. Video games play a significant role in my life. I’ve always owned at least one console, and I’m a true fan of some of the well-known gaming franchises such as Mario, Zelda, Call of Duty, Tomb Raider, etc.

I’ve been trying to get my son interested in video games for the last two years with kids friendly games, but my son did not care for video games. He was more into LEGO and Hot Wheels, which is fine. To be honest…
