I was just challenged with the question “How Can I Better Improve My Posts” (or content in general). The one thing that kept creeping into my mind over and over as I tried to answer the question is…follow your heart.
For so long, I have tried to be what others thought I was supposed to be or said what I thought others wanted to hear. I know I am not alone in this. We often do this and when that happens we lose track of who we really are. This happens so often because it’s very easy to do and truth be told, I still struggle with this as a grown adult.
It took me a LONG time to start writing and creating on this blog. I have owned this domain for years now and only recently (this year) have I started to put “pen to paper” with it. I used to sit in front of my computer screen and struggle so much with coming up with content because I was constantly trying to write things that I thought others wanted me to write. Now, please don’t take that as me saying that I don’t care what you think because I honestly always want to write things that provide value to you and I love learning what those topics are as you provide feedback to me! I do care what others think. When someone tells you that they don’t care what others think, that should scare you. Caring about other peoples opinion is not the same as how you let their opinion effect you. I have just learned that I attract much more “success” when I am genuine and authentic and that goes both online and offline.
Once I was able to let go of that idea that I had created (that I needed to write specific things)…my creative content started to flourish. Sometimes, so much that I couldn’t keep up and I’d be weeks ahead in posts!
I LOVE when that happens!
There is no specific topic you need to speak on as long as you’re speaking from the heart. The cool thing about Hive is just that! There are communities for many different topics and if it doesn’t exist, you have the ability to create it and connect with like minded individuals….
