My life is already too busy...
I made that "Gammatrap?" post when I first launched this site and this blog section has been collecting dust since. It's my own fault. I set this page to private. But with Destiny 2's Shadowkeep coming out (LITERALLY today), and with my brand's recent spurt of growth, I figured it'd be a fine time to start cataloging my journey into becoming, what most would call, a "real" content creator. I used quotations for the word "real" (like I just did again) because many people already see me as a content creator; I create content after all. But I'm still just a small fry. Plenty of people have heard my name BUT when I show up to say "Hi" they're sitting there wondering why my name sounds so familiar. I'm at THAT stage of content creator.
Having said that, I've recently noticed the beginnings of a growth spike. My posts are becoming more noticed, my interactions are getting more impressions and reactions, my Youtube videos are gaining more organic growth and I'm gaining more subscribers than normal. The biggest keys to content creation are momentum and relevance. When you start to notice (because you should be monitoring your analytics like a starving hawk) an increase in traffic, or viewers, you need to immediately find out WHAT brought them in and WHY they're deciding to stick around. Are you trying something new? Have you changed your background? Have you recently made a friend with a larger audience than you and now their people are checking you out as well? Whatever it is, you need to figure out what's causing the growth and do more of that. This won't be a one or two time event by the way. You'll need to constantly be looking for upward bumps in your content's performance, learn what caused it, and shift more in that direction.
I figure that's a fine place to stop the first real post here. I'll be sure to update this blog more down the line with either cool topics, advice, opinions, and/or tutorials.
Let me know if you found this insightful, helpful, or boring.
