Creating Content

Developing content for my website, keeping up with my Twitter timeline, occasionally posting to Instagram, and staying in touch on Facebook all while trying to launch a YouTube channel can be a tall order and too much to manage, right?

Things can seem to get a bit tricky when it comes to creating and posting original content.  I think I have a pretty good system in place right now, as far as where I get inspiration for content, but I definitely have my days where I’m stumped and just don’t know what to type and/or post.

I stare off, gazing, imagining, hoping the words will magically come to me, but they don’t. Sometimes I’m pretty good at moving on; then there are other times when I’ll obsess over an idea.  Then I realize, the more I think the less I type.  I’ll sometimes come up with random design ideas, then become obsessed with how to customize my site.  Before I know it days and months have passed and I’ve got nothing to show for it.

It’s one thing if you follow the news or what’s trending on social media, creating a buzz off of new content is a battle within itself.  But then again, I guess that’s the difference between interesting and mediocre writing.
