Hey guys! Just dropping in to let you know that as of now, the Monday posts will not be happening. This is because of a lot of reasons, but can essentially be boiled down to these main points.
- Constantly producing content isn’t good for my mental health, and it feels very hypocritical to write a blog about mental health and then have to sacrifice my mental health to constantly give you content. When I first got into this, the advice I was hearing online was always “stick to a posting schedule” and “quality over quantity”…. but also that you should be putting out at least five posts every single week, in addition to managing your other social media platforms. Although it is possible, it’s, quite honestly, exhausting, and I want to be able to focus on myself and not have to constantly be worried about these things.
- Constantly producing content isn’t making it any better for you, either. I try to work as hard as I can on every single post, but realistically, I only have so much time, and a lot of the stages of production have to be cut short on account of that. And I don’t want to impose that kind of deadline on myself anymore.
As time has gone on, I have grown to appreciate how important it is to take as much time as you need with a piece of art to make it as good as possible for your audience. Although in the short run, you might get better engagement from something made super fast, in the long run, it doesn’t really matter. And I guess I just want to make stuff that really means something to both you and me. That being said, Friday posting will continue, so stay tuned for that tomorrow 🙂
Lots of love,
