This Content Stuff is Not Easy...
Ooowee, it’s been quite a while since my last blog post, and I can’t help but feel a mixture of excitement and reflection as I write again. I had told myself that I would aim for a new blog entry every week, yet here I am, several months later. Anyways, this content stuff is not easy… I’ve been diligently working on enhancing my Instagram presence by sharing more videos, photos, and stories. I hope that these posts have not been a burden on anyone, but rather a source of encouragement and support. My intention has always been to deliver valuable content, driven not by a desire for attention, but by a genuine drive to make a positive impact in this world.
The journey of content creation has largely been a private one for most of my life, something I regarded as a mere hobby. It wasn’t until a couple of years ago that I decided to explore ways to turn my passions into a potential source of income. This will forever be a long journey, but I have at least begun. It all started with Etsy!
Recently, my focus has shifted towards my personal social media. It’s a bit of an experiment, perhaps even a gamble, but it feels right. I’ve come to realize that true fulfillment stems from engaging in a uniquely gratifying process. I’m on a quest to find my niche, a space where I can make a difference and serve those who are embarking on their unpathed journey.
When it comes to content creation, we all start somewhere. For me, that meant diving into the Adobe suite with tools like Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere. The learning curve was steep, and I may have jumped in a bit too ambitiously, tackling Illustrator, Premiere, and Photoshop right off the bat. Eventually, I realized that I needed to cultivate my creative skills on a simpler platform first. Looking back, I’d recommend starting with tools like Lightroom and Canva. They provide an awesome playground for developing your creative eye before delving into more complex applications like Illustrator and Premiere. Templates are abundant, helping you refine your aesthetic preferences. The journey to mastery takes time, so embrace it one day at a time. If the prospect seems overwhelming, just remember that losing track of time while immersed in your work is a sign of true passion. Furthermore, the pursuit of perfection can stifle your creativity and induce unnecessary stress. Remember, perfect content doesn’t exist–create, share, and learn from your audience's responses.
You are probably curious about my future plans. Well, let’s just say the idea of slowing down has never crossed my mind and I’m gearing up to embrace the uncertainty. My intention isn’t to peddle programs or merchandise; it’s to lay the groundwork for a supportive community and provide value to those interested. While financial gain might be on the horizon, my focus isn’t on monetization. I understand the principles of sales and I’m committed to ethical practices. My audience is my community. Whatever path I take, it will lead me to something bigger than myself. To anyone intrigued by this journey, let’s succeed together.
