Small Content Creator Achieving Happiness
I asked a question on Instagram today : Are you a happy content creator? What do you think the result was? I must be surrounded by the right people. 100% voted “YES”. To be honest, I expected a slightly different result.
On one side, my limited blogging experience gives me no right to talk about creator’s happiness. On the other, I like research and I often do it. 😍 I love listening to stories of success. I like learning from others’ mistakes. And I think I know know myself pretty well. This is why, today I want to offer you my perspective, as a tiny, yet happy content creator.🌈
It’s not a secret anymore that social media has the potential of making you rich. BIG TIME. That’s one of the reasons why The Online Dream has gained popularity among teenagers and young adults. The goal? Likes, views, follows, subscribers and hitting that Trending page.
Is that real happiness or just a myth? I personally think it’s all about the process.
If you’re just about to start exposing yourself online, rest assured: There will be people to appreciate you truly. 🤗 You should know that no matter the niche, you WILL have a public. Finding it takes some time, but thanks to the existence of online marketing, the right public finds you – depending on how much you’re willing to spend.🙃
There will also be some who …won’t understand you much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ That’s only natural.
The golden rule
No matter the kind of content you have in mind, there is one golden rule to being a happy creator: Do it with passion. Invest the necessary time and energy and you won’t even feel how fast time flies. Try to focus on meaningful works and create real value for the world. If you want to grow online, consider the things that YOU can give to the world. Discover what makes you YOU and how you can use that in your benefit as well as others’.
Now I’m not talking going all philosophical or inventing devices over night (unless that’s what speaks to you). Anything has value as long as you believe in it and put some effort and soul into it. It should be something that you love creating. Rethink it so as it helps/amuses/teaches/inspires other people. 🤩 You get my point.
Passion has another benefit: it keeps you motivated. If you love what you’re working on, there’s no way you can stop.💪
Life vs Goals
I honestly really enjoy my lifestyle. I have a freelance job that I love doing and it’s AMAZING having time for my hobbies as well, hence having this blog. ✨It’s all I ever wanted. 💗 Let’s make it clear: Having both my freelance job and blog means that I spend A LOT of time indoors. Again, I’m not complaining. As an introvert, I actually find it dreamy. LOL😅
But even I feel the need to go jogging and catch up with my friends over a cup of coffee.🙌 My point is that having these passions online gets lonely, occasionally. If you’re an outdoor kind of person, keep this in mind. 😌 And once you start feeling down, try not to be affected by it. Manage your time properly and make sure you don’t neglect your friends.
Chasing goals is great, as long as you still cherish real human connection.💗
