No, I am not taking another hiatus 🙂
Over the last few weeks I have learned – finally – to not rush.
When I started sharing my feelings, thoughts, and works onto social media, I felt this crazy pressure to constantly put stuff out every week. I was reading blog after blog on how to produce ‘quality content’ to gain more readers and followers.
It was getting to the point to where I was stressing myself out about not having anything new and ‘thought provoking’ to post. I had almost decided to just stop all together and to remove myself from all social medias.
Until I remembered why I started doing it in the first place.
Exactly why was I even trying to keep up with all these other media mavens and blogger beasts? The truth is that found myself being visited by an old friend – Envy. I wanted to have their following of ‘fans’. To know that my work was being viewed and was well received.
But that is not why I stated this journey ya’ll.
Yeah, I would like more positive interactions with those who stop by my page or my YouTube channel. That does not mean that I need more followers. I can image that those with thousands of followers don’t even hear from or engage with a large portion of them anyways.
So, my schedule of when I will share content has changed.
I will be posting here (and on all my other sites) 2 to 3 times a month (with the exceptions being Blogging University and YouTube,because the classes that I am taking on coursera and Blogging U may call for weekly video and written responses).
This is because I want to present those that do visit the site and engage with me, I want to give them the best content possible. So I am taking my time – really learning how to produce my music, make better videos, and keep improving on my writing style. I still have plenty of projects in the works, and I haven’t forgotten about Shinee Sessions (or about learning how to create a page and add eBooks-lol).
Thank ya’ll so much for understanding. I hope that this helps someone else going through something similar to remember why they started their (social media) journey and helps ground them if needed to keep at it.
As yourself – not those that you see around you.
Stay inspiring and be inspired!
