Alright, here it is.
I don’t like the social media aspect of podcasting, and I don’t think I ever will. I’ve never really enjoyed social media in a true sense, like, at all. I deleted my FB in college, my personal insta basically has a single picture of me and one of my dog. I’ve never bothered learning the rules and the follow-follow back dynamic.
But, here’s the thing, in order to be a success, people have to know that you exist, and that is…difficult to say the least. I have nothing but respect for people who just run social media accounts, hell, influencing on youtube is an artform and requires a work ethic I’m honestly dying to find. This is my largest blind spot, and I’m trying to decide whether or not it’s worth building up.
Like…if I can learn, I think that I can vastly expand my base, but I’ll be spending time I could spend further developing the world on that, and honestly, I’d rather develop the world.
I’m trying to find a happy medium but I’m starting to wonder if there is one…
Regardless, I think I’ll keep pressing forward, in small steps, the best I can. I have a presence but it’s whisper soft, and I think I’m just going to have to learn to be alright with that. Maybe one day, I’ll just hit the algorithm.
