Supporting fellow creatives in the online world is important to me. Social media and the wider internet in general is known as a volatile unregulated place sometimes and it isn’t always easy to navigate. That is without mentioning the feeling of invisibility no matter how hard one does try to be seen.
Giving someone a boost on social media doesn’t cost a thing and to me, a lot of the support I give doesn’t need to involve a monetary transaction. Kindness does not cost a thing along with manners and so taking that from the real world to the online one has been a no brainer for me. My motive stems from my own experiences as well as passion for consuming good stories and creativity. It takes a huge level of bravery to put anything creative out into the world and I know what that’s like to seemingly risk everything to do it.
The majority of my success has come from being known for supporting others while also never giving in and always thinking of new ways to connect with others. I once tried to be all sales all the time and found that making personal connections with others to be way more rewarding and meaningful – they also drive my sales, follows, reviews and further connections without really intending to.
Over some years I have discovered some incredible books and writers. Their work has kept me going and fostered my own creativity to keep writing and keep aiming to get better. Supporting others takes many forms and as long as you respect boundaries, it can be very rewarding to see others succeed because that drives hope for everyone.
