Lately, I have been on my phone trying to research and create more content on MY E-MAGAZINE, get in touch with people, like , share , tag , retweet , Tweet , Facebook , Whats app , follow people on Instagram,
reply DMs (by the way if you are not following me on Instagram yet CLICK HERE), view awesome Instagram feeds, read all the awesome chat messages on bloggers advocate chat group… if you are a Nigerian blogger and you need to know your fellow Nigerian bloggers and bond too… You need to be there CLICK HERE.
So, with all these things going on in my life, I forgot to mention that I have to take care of my two wonderful Boys and my home too. I just saw myself trapped in a web of so much to do and feeling overwhelmed by my to-do-list. I really can’t explain how … but somehow I got sucked into it.
Don’t get me wrong I love blogging, I love sharing the little I know, I love to talk when am comfortable. I actually started as a beauty and healthy lifestyle blogger but with time I have evolved and I began to see that I have much more to offer than just makeup and healthy feeding lifestyle. I had to take several steps back, think, research and reinvent myself to suit what I had in mind. I needed to blog differently.
Back to the main issue here, trying to stay afloat swamps you sometimes and you forget on a low-key what matters the most. And mind you if one doesn’t take note of this, it might gradually brew up into something that you never imagined.
RECORD YOUR THOUGHTS
My aim to capture and maximize each moment, through a picture, a video and a quote actually take a lot because of my tendency to forget ideas easily. So, therefore, I opted to download a recording app on my phone so I can record voice notes. This has helped me so much to save my ideas as recordings instead of waiting till if find a pen and paper.
I am also trying to schedule my posts on my social media handles and short clips. I work when everyone goes to bed. Family comes first. I write my posts on WORD documents then copy and paste on my blog for scheduling. Work on my Canva designs too( In case you want to learn how to use Canva for designs … Hit me up via mail and let’s talk Zobamdazzels@gmail.com, or you want some designs done for you I can do that for you too).
” I DON’T KNOW WHERE I AM GOING … BUT I AM ON MY WAY “
Also, depending on how early I start my day and when my creative juices kick in, I can decide to snap some pictures for my blog posts, create content, record voice notes, read other blogs that I find interesting or I could decide to plan my errands for the day or do some house chores.
In a nutshell, no matter how you want to view it, most times we are too engrossed in what is trending on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Whatsapp that we lose sight of those things or people that matter. This does not mean that if you earn a living via social media that you should not make the most out of it. The point is … LEARN TO UNPLUG sometimes. DETOX and Come back with a BANG!
Hope I struck several cords with this post … I would like to know your thoughts in the comment section
