I’ve been thinking about online branding for a few days now. I’m talking about content generated by one person or a few people. Not a major brand like Sanrio.
Some people they just vanish for a long time. People abandon making online content for whatever reason, and I understand that.
This person was saying that they would tell you what they were up to if you became a Patron. They sporadically post content. And you want me to give you my money? The funny thing is this person is asking for suggestions. I just have one word for them “constancy”.
They are producing content on different platforms. Personally I don’t like to do that anymore. I fear the well running dry. Or does that sound too amateur? Even though I have been publicly blogging for about 12 years or so doesn’t mean I’m immune to amateur thoughts or mistakes. It has happened to me awhile ago when I joined deviantart. I was trying to run my blog and post content on DA. It wasn’t even making new art I was just scanning old drawings I had. It wasn’t until I took a life skills class or something and you had to log everything you did for a week. Until I saw I was spending an insane amount of hours on this, generating online content. I felt so embarrassed when I turned that assignment in.
Ok so I usually don’t take advice from reddit because most of it is horrible unless I’m looking for media suggestions like movies or songs or something. Anyway I was reading a post on reddit about blogging advice and it said to be consistent in your blogging. Which is something I totally agree with.
A lot of branding is putting a face to a name. I’m not putting my face on it. I guess I could if I really wanted to. But I don’t right now so we’ll leave it at that.
I don’t really think about monetizing my content anymore. I mean I have that button there, but in the sense that I have a patreon or anything like that. I really wanted to be a famous blogger or something. It was something I used to fantasize about 8-12 years ago. But I don’t anymore I don’t wanna be that person. (you know what a mean) 😅
Do I have a following? I’m not exactly sure…possibly? 😕🤔 It’s not something I have really thought about or think about.
