Insurance - How to protect yourself on the internet

The internet is a mixed bag of awesome videos, delicious recipes, and hilarious memes. Unfortunately, there’s a darker side to the web that we’ve all experienced at some point and it’s no fun.

Hackers, cybercrime, and scams are a reality that we need to protect ourselves against. You may think it will never happen to you, but as an internet user, you’re at risk. Even when you least suspect it.

According to the scary cyber stats collected by King Price Insurance, more than 600,000 Facebook accounts are hacked every day! Even more surprising is that those nasty hackers attempt to attack online users every 39 seconds. Sadly, a whopping 68% of cash stolen from banking accounts has been unrecoverable.

I’ve gathered 5 top tips that you need to know to stay safe and protect yourself on the internet.

Recipe videos that rock for lazy chefs

Recipe videos are a dime a dozen on the internet right now and if you love to cook, but you don’t have much time, they can be perfect!

I have a confession to make. I’m addicted to watching recipe videos on Instagram. I could do it for hours. In fact, my very first Instagram collection was simply titled ‘food’, because it’s only right. Before Instagram introduced categories, I would save the recipe videos on my phone’s notepad, because that’s what a true addict does. Hah!

You’ve probably spotted these recipe videos all over the internet. Buzzfeed is filled to the brim with recipe videos and now there are accounts from all over the world mimicking the style and I love it. I decided to share my love for these simple recipes by showing off a few of my favourites here.

The thing about these videos and why they work for lazy chefs (like me) is that even if the recipe is complicated, the fact that it can be compacted into a short, cute video means I’m willing to try it! Whether it works out as being simple or not, the video made it look super easy, so I’m going to try it. (I know I’m not alone in this.)

Jetting off to Malta by Uphill Writer

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet lately. I’ve been a busy bee and have many posts waiting in my drafts, but for now, I have some exciting news to share.

As most of you know, my brother and I started Inkfish Digital a few years back. It’s a copywriting business where we create content and tell stories for our clients as well as handle social media. Well, we’ve worked with some great companies, but thanks to our awesome clients based in Malta, I’m leaving South Africa for the very first time!
