Welcome back to my blog!
For today I have prepared a slightly different post. I feel like writing and sharing some thoughts with you. A while back I told you about my plan to come up with a YouTube channel. I wanted to do this especially because many of you asked about tutorials and that’s something I would really love to do – sharing my tips and tricks on crafting. This hobby of mine is not my main source of income. I wish it could be, but right now, it’s not. Yet I constantly feel pressured to create more content and be more present in the online space. I don’t know why. Maybe because I see all these content creators being active on all social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, SnapChat and so on. All at once! And somehow I felt the pressure that I should do the same, in order to grow a strong and healthy community invested in my content. In the same time, I don’t want to lose myself just to please others. Never ever.
I finally created a safe space for me where I can enjoy a multitude of hobbies I have – dolls, photography, instagram & crafting. So I took the decision of having only one main social media platform, and that is my instagram account. I will also keep my blog because I love blogging and I don’t want to give up on it, no matter how many people read my articles. But I still want to come up with a new type of content – video. I really want to try on that. But instead of doing it on another platform – YouTube – I will do it on instagram TV. And if I ever find myself attracted to a TikTok kind of content – I have instagram reels for that. All my content in one place! I think it’s much more easy for me to handle all my ideas and my content if I have it all in one place. And besides that, I really love instagram. If you know how to filter the content you want to see, instagram can be a very good source of inspiring, motivational and educational content.
I don’t know why I felt the need to explain myself on this matter, because probably, most of you don’t even care about this kind of stuff. But I did put so much unnecessary pressure on me, with this YouTube channel thingy and I don’t want to do this ever again. Because dolls and photography and crafting are hobbies that bring me so much joy and I want you to see that genuine feeling through my content. And not because I HAVE TO do it, but because I WANT to.
I wish you all a beautiful Sunday and a wonderful new week!
