In trying to crack the code of how to become a successful content creator, I regularly come across advice to be consistent. My mouth says “that makes sense!” but my mind is always screaming “how????” I am currently a full-time university student whose life is taken over by coursework, leaving me with barely enough time to breathe let alone create content. However, I decided to give it a go. My main struggle is that creating content can take days, there’s the shooting, editing, creating artwork, thinking of captions and blogposts. There’s also the issue of creating QUALITY content. I have to make it somewhat good, don’t I? I decided to take a break from trying to grow my @ronitasworld page (because growing social media platforms another headache) and tried to be consistent on my main page mixing me and my work. It’s been a couple weeks and I can’t say that I have seen result so I tell myself to patient. How can I be patient when I feel like I’m running out of time. It’s nearing the time for me to look for full time work. I’m so passionate about what I want to do, it makes me scared and sad at the thought that I might have to settle because content creating isn’t going the way I want it to.
I started this post to explain my absence but its become a mini rant. It’s like being in an escape room, hours have gone by and you still haven’t figured how to get out. If you feel like you’re going through something similar, I would urge you to take your time. It’s frustrating I know but you need to take time and think ‘what’s best for me?’ My saving grace has been that what is meant to be will be and while that is the vaguest piece of advice, it does offer some comfort.
Anyway, here’s some shots I took while I’ve been away from my blog…
