In this blog post I will write about the importance of consistency as a content creator. There are several reasons why you should create content consistently. I will explain these reasons and offer you some motivation to create your content.
Why create consistently?
As a content creator, there is power in consistency. News organizations, for example, broadcast daily. Viewers of the news get into the habit of consuming those broadcasts and it becomes part of their daily routine. If one day the news broadcast decided not to air, they would lose viewers because the consistency of the schedule would be broken. News organizations broadcast information daily and consistently to enforce a subtle and hypnotic power over the citizens of a nation. By broadcasting a steady stream of information, they constantly reinforce that they are the ones you should trust to acquire data. The internet has revolutionized broadcasting and empowered you as an individual to be your own independent content creator and I think people should capitalize on this new freedom.
The show must go on
The goal of any media organization is to get you to keep consuming their content. Most people understand how this works. Media organizations often run ads before or alongside of their content in order to generate income. This website is no different. As an independent content creator I need to attempt to make an income as well. If media organizations stop producing content consistently, they generally will not have an income. They need to keep finding new content to create in order to keep you, the reader or viewer, watching.
Become the media
There’s an old saying, if you can’t beat them, join them. As individuals we should try to become broadcasters ourselves. I have become tired of regularly watching overpaid news broadcasters on television reading me the news from teleprompters. We should try to become our own broadcasters of information and stop relying on large media conglomerations. One of the best ways I have found to do this is through apps like TikTok. Other good ways are blogging, and YouTube.
Easier than you might think
I used to think it would be tiresome and difficult to start a YouTube channel or a blog, until I decided to just do it. The idea that you can possibly earn even a small income from your thoughts, ideas, and content is very motivating to me. I believe almost anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Being a content creator can be a lot of fun. You get to have your views and opinions broadcast out to the world. Also, you can build influence, meet new people, share ideas, and ultimately live a richer life.
As a content creator, you should be producing new material daily. In doing so, you become like a news organization. Eventually, people may turn to you for your content in order to help them in various ways. When they do, there’s a chance you can earn income and that can allow you the time to produce more content. It has the potential to become a rewarding career path or side business. I feel that being a content creator is one of the most enjoyable professions you can have, especially if you are a creative person.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog and have a great day.
