These are very short reflective blog posts. Please don’t worry about anything I say in these. I hope they provide you with some background on what goes on behind the camera!
After a tough day earlier in the month, I started one of my early morning routines of scrolling through Instagram.
I do sometimes believe in fate. There are some strange things that happen in my life that I think, if you are open to them, can actually support. I’ll tell you about my strangeness about numbers later on!
While scrolling through the stories and reels I came across someone who was talking about multi-passionate people. If you are not aware, one piece of advice that comes up in any influencer’s growth strategy is the process of ‘niche down. Basically, this is focusing all your IG posts and reels on one area – the area or topic that you want to be known for. Initially, I had thought about being a productive person, but I found it so hard to target this area consistently. I also enjoy live streaming and trying to stay positive and of course, RPG systems. I felt that I didn’t have the expertise to focus completely on one niche and this was what was causing my crash and burn issue earlier.
So, while watching the IG content, I came across a post that was talking about multi-passionate people. Basically, these were people like me who had a number of passions and who felt could not niche down. The person was basically saying that multi-passionate people are another group of content creators who exist and that being multi-passionate is fine! You might not grow at fast, and all the content might not be applicable to all your followers, but they know this when they follow.
This gave me some hope! I think I am one of these multi-passionate people. In a way, that is what makes me, me. I am not a master of one element, I am mediocre in a number of areas. I’m happy about that and maybe it will help me move forward.
Before we go – numbers. When I look at clock times I tend to see palindromes or some other sort of pattern. I know that I probably look at the time and only acknowledge it when I do see palindromes or patterns like 1234 but I thought it was interesting. Well now that I have committed it to type, it probably comes across as I am some sort of crackpot!
All the best – inwils!
If you are reading this then you might have already listened to my podcast episode for this month. If you haven’t then please go and listen and if you have, what do you think?
I really felt that the inwils interval was not providing value to anyone and so it needed to change. I wanted to focus on being a small content creator but really didn’t know how I wanted to produce it.
To be honest, I’m still not 100% behind the idea, but I wanted to give it a go.
So, if you have been on my Ko-fi site, you might have noticed some fiction. Yes, I really like writing stories or narratives. I think it is probably as close to being creative that I will ever get.
I don’t really have enough time to be a best-selling author as well as a small content creator so I thought why not combine my skills or talents together? Well, they probably could not be classed as skills or talents, but you know what I mean.
Preamble Everyone plays Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition. But these rules are so much easier to play and friendlier to the players when compared to the original Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 1st Edition rules. I am sharing some of the differences to make you aware of how easy you have it, starting with the magic-user…
I have been walking about with an old-fashioned wallet for some time….
So rather than just providing a video about how to be a small content creator, I thought I would provide value by telling it as a story. This would also allow me to add some of my unique humour to it and make listening to it more interesting.
This would mean that I would not make videos about being a small content creator but instead focus on productivity and organisation. My possible sponsor deals with Metricool and Clickup will be aligned with this.
So the new improved storytelling version of my podcast has been born! My fingers are crossed I start to get more downloads! I’ll keep you informed.
Oh btw, if you would like to support a complete episode, then feel free to donate to make it happen.
