3 habits of highly effective bloggers
The way to succeed in this world is to be persistent. If you are persistent, you will eventually become successful. At least this is the theory. In practice, it can look a little different, if not completely. However, there is some truth in persistence leading to success.

Jozi Film Festival: A dream realised for the local film industry
There needs to be something said about those people who strive to fulfil their dreams.

Dr Howard Rybko&#39;s <i>The Decarb Diet</i> is now on the shelf
It has to be said that here are diet books and there are diet books. Some offer impractical advice in a style of writing that makes my eyes glaze over. Others are so extreme that they make me wonder if I really want to go through all the effort to look like the woman on the cover, with the strained smile and bodybuilder pose.
Leanne Hunt&#39;s debut novel delves into the lives of the well-to-do
What is special about this debut novel is not its characters, although they are well-rounded and deliciously real. It’s not the fact that on the surface it is a gentle meander through the lives of well-to-do South Africans living in the affluent suburbs of Johannesburg, while underneath it unlocks a world of human desire, anxiety and need.
