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.

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!

Trying to conceive – The reality of wanting a family

Trying to conceive. Falling pregnant. Having a baby. All of these phrases sound so innocent, but in reality, it’s so much more than that.

Trying to conceive - Uphill Writer

I’m not shy in chatting about how much Daniel and I would love to have a family. We’ve been married for more than 3 years now and more than a year of that has been spent trying to conceive.

Wanting to have a baby as much as Daniel and I do, but each month being disappointed, is something that wears on your mind. It’s the sort of situation that turns the world into a black and white canvas. I’m either pregnant or not pregnant. It’s one of the few situations in life that is a complete. You’re either entirely pregnant or not. No grey area.

Fantastic South African Bloggers and Where to Find Them

South African Bloggers from all around the country have been brought together on Facebook.

South African Bloggers Network

In 2015 I found myself searching for a place to connect with bloggers like myself and after finding nothing that catered for South Africans specifically, I decided to change that. I was searching for a Facebook group that made it easy to share blog posts and ask for help, but seeing as one didn’t exist, I created the South African Bloggers group.

All I wanted to do was connect with fellow South African bloggers, but I never expected it to grow as quickly as it did.
