It’s 2019 and online services are something that it is worth paying for nowadays. Depending on what each individual prefers, online services can be different and super useful if you know how to efficiently use them. Today I will reveal which are my favorite online services that I think it’s worth paying for and which are the reasons why they can actually change your life. So here it goes:
Owning your own domain and website
If you enjoy writing like I do, then you clearly wouldn’t mind paying for your own personalized domain and for the possibility to host your own blog. Of course, there are free alternatives BUT nothing compares with the advantages of owning your own website. Some people usually combine a purchased domain with free hosting (like blogger, wordpress, weebly etc.) but there are many reason why this is not always efficient when it comes to starting your own brand, online store and so on. I will definitely write more about this topic in a future article.
Todoist is an amazing app if you really want to start saving precious time by efficient organization of your daily tasks. I’m using the premium version of todoist for quite a while now and it’s done wonders for my time management. Todoist helps me focus, organize and clearly establish which are my main priorities and when I can complete them. You can also use the free version which is quite good but since I’ve fallen in love with this app, I went for the full advantages of the premium version which is only around 36 euros per year.
I bet this was an obvious one. Yes, just like for many other people, Netflix is something that is totally worth paying for, especially if you share it with family or friends. We’re a gang of 5 friends, splitting the best Netflix package and we’re all getting the same benefits for around 2 euros per month. Crazy, right? If you love movies and series, then Netflix is totally something worth paying for.
If you want to have your own secure cloud where you can store your stuff, then dropbox is the solution. I would totally recommend dropbox if you like to store files which are quite big, for smaller files like photos, you can totally use the free version of Dropbox or other online services like Google Drive, One Drive and so on.
Ya’ll know how much I suffered until Spotify finally reached Romania. I used to hack it with various VPN’s and I even tried several alternatives like Tidal, Apple Music, Deezer etc, literally NONE of them compares with Spotify. In March 2017, Spotify finally launched in Romania and since then, I’m a premium user and I will forever be like that. Music is a part of my life and Spotify is by far, the best music streaming service out-there.
Dare to live your life as you envision. Dare to live your wildest dreams. Be kind. Be happy. Be You. Someone wise once said “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” So just go for it! 🙂
