I started blogging and sharing my work online around 2008. I turned that into a full time business in 2010.
It was easier then. There is no question about that.
There were enough people blogging and being on social media that there were opportunities for online business… but not so many people that it was hard to be seen in the crowd.
And the algorithms were just babies then. Not the full grown monsters they are today. I could go on and on about that so I’ll just say that I feel pretty UGH about social media a lot of the time…
But this is a place where people connect. This is a place where ideas are shared and your ideas deserve to be a part of the conversation.
Your voice deserves to be heard. Your ideas matter. Your work is important.
If you just stop sharing them in these places… that’s no good. It means these places become even more filled with even more of the inane nonsense that the algorithm likes to uplift.
I am offering Marketing as a Creative + Spiritual practice as a monthly call for this for all of 2023. Together, we are practicing listening to our deepest inspiration about how to put ourselves out there in a way that serves the soul of our work.
