Why are we relying on platforms that could despair within an hour?
As a content creator I will be the first one to admit that my attachment to social media platforms and internet is defiantly higher than for the norm. Bloggers, YouTubers, Instagramers, or simply as I like to call it, content creators in some shape or form are touch depended on the platforms that gives us some sort of voice. Therefore, you can imagine the panic when last night both Instagram and Facebook stopped working the way they should.
uWeirdly, enough for the first time, I think ever, I didn’t care. You know what I’ve done instead? Edited some photos, did some more research for projects I’m working on and instead of wasting my time on social media I was productive, for once. As much as I love social media and it’s advantages there are times when I wish the socials would be down more frequently. I think this way instead of mindlessly scrolling though these platforms and promoting our art, passions and ideas we’d create more.
Social media has made me so focused on promoting my content, it actually stopped me from creating and how am I suppose to promote if I have no content to do it with. I became so concerned with the perfection of what I create that it stopped me from creating and most importantly sharing. I’m not even kidding when I say that I have a solid month worth of content to be posted but for some reason finding words to go with those photos and outfits is so hard. And I know my idea of perfect blog post is to blame, but the truth is the perfect blog post simply doesn’t exist. We all have a way we create, in our own way. And at this point when it comes to my content, creating it bring me more joy, then actually spending time promoting it. Crazy right. So I think what I need to do is to just publish what I have ready and create more, without worrying when to post and how to post.
After all this suppose to be fun!
