So last night I asked you guys if you had been listening to any podcasts lately, one that I’ve really been loving is by @thjeffreys from @fohr.co called ‘Fohr Ground’.
In these episodes Tim interviews various incredible influencers and bloggers who are KILLING the game and they talk about how they got to where they are, their creative processes, why they do what they are doing and the meaning behind their content.
One episode that I recently listened to featured @officiallyquiggley (if you don’t follow her, go and do it, she’s like a colourful happiness explosion 💥🌞🌸🦋💜)
She spoke about some really important things that I honestly feel don’t get enough focus on this crazy little app!
Some things I took away from it were:
1. Always remember that above all else your mental health is most important, always check in with yourself and make sure at the end of the day you can say your creating content that is full of soul, that makes YOU happy and that is HUMAN because we are all looking to connect!
2. Creating content that you love, but that also resonates with your followers and finding that sweet spot in the middle. If this is your job or profession then I think you’ll know what I mean when I say that your followers are your clients, and the goal is to try to find a way that your creating what you love in a way that resonates with them too!
3. When you look at other people’s content and your not feeling joy or happiness FOR THEM and instead jealousy or resentment, to look inward and really focus on yourself and assuring that your 100% happy with your own content, or perhaps you need to reflect on what your purpose is and what your truly wanting to portray through your content!
4. Create something with soul, that is real and attainable, that has a human quality, and one way to do this, that honestly I never really thought about too much, is our CAPTIONS! I am so guilty for creating these little 6 word captions constantly because I always feel nervous to write out what I’m feeling or talk more in depth about what’s on my mind, but I honestly feel as though it’s such an amazing way to make sure we are connecting in more ways than just visually!
