Producing Content VS Consuming Content

When everyone is a content creator it is easy to get caught up in watching the content other people create and consequently not creating your own. Take a look at other people’s content from time to time but do not let it influence you too much.

It’s so easy for billions of people to create content nowadays. It’s also easy to get lost in the information of others and never create your own. Seeing a lot of content from other people can make you shut down and stop creating your own. It’s easier to scroll social media and enjoy the productivity of others rather than creating. In this article I will talk about the advantages of producing content rather than consuming content.

Producing content

Content creators need to spend more of their time creating content rather than consuming the content of others. Those who do not give, can not receive. As a creator, do not simply sit back and enjoy the content that other people have produced online. You will only make income by producing your own content. You need to shift your mentality. Try to find more enjoyment in producing content rather than watching the content of others.

Consuming content

It’s simpler for most people to relax and enjoy content created by others rather than producing their own. Many people like to enjoy a television show or news broadcast. They have no desire to produce their own TV show or host the news. However, without becoming a media producer yourself, how can you make money in the content creation industry?

People like to watch the productions of others to get ideas for things that they can make content about too. That is fine. To a certain extent. A problem arises though due to the addictive nature of social media apps. If we consume too much of other people’s media, we forget to produce our own. When we do produce content, it suffers because most of our energy for the day has been taken watching others. As a creator, try creating your most important content first thing in the day before watching others. For more information on this morning mentality, I have an article explaining the power of accomplishing important tasks first thing daily.

Conclusion

When everyone is a content creator it is easy to get caught up in watching the content other people create and consequently not creating your own. Take a look at other people’s content from time to time but do not let it influence you too much. If you spent all your life consuming other people’s content you would lack originality and create nothing of your own. The lesson of today’s blog is to be more of a producer, and less of a consumer of content. Otherwise your voice could get lost in the shuffle of the internet.
