Finding my (online) voice

April 6, 2024

I've been trying to strike a balance of what to post and what not to these days

I don't want to post online like it's og twitter about nothing, but also I just feel this nudge to be posting more and possibly being more candid and open online about well, anything.

It feels uncomfortable but I'm still working on finding my groove.. I've never really understood social media and how to stand out or excel beyond a single industry/niche.. like so many other undiscovered creatives, I feel like I suck at marketing myself.

If/when I do pursue this path, striking a balance between sharing and self-promotion is something I definitely struggle with.. self-promo definitely gives me the ich, but were now at a time where it's mandatory to promote yourself because no one else will.. indie is mainstream basically.

So either, I get over it, or I never post any of my work.

I was thinking about this because I was talking about the Mixpost API and webhooks being implemented in v2 on Mastodon and it got me thinking what that means once there are no more barriers to getting my work online.

Once that's live, I can't blame anyone but myself as an excuse to not share the backlog of work I have sitting on my hard drives.

So I'm posting this here, on my website, to keep myself accountable.

I mentioned the concerns I have but ultimately I have a good idea of what I need to do to get to the vision I have in my head, and there really is no way of knowing without doing something.

Thanks for coming to my pep talk I guess lol
