The 9 Steps I’m Taking to Start Enjoying Social Media Again

social media

It’s been almost 13 years since I started using social media. I hopped on because I was just starting my business and I had signed up for a course on social media (I really wish I had taken screenshots of how things looked back then).

For the most part, it’s been a really positive journey.

You used to be able to drive a lot of traffic to your website with social media… it felt a bit like what the gold rush must have felt like (minus the riches 💰).

Each new feature felt like the wild west and massive possibility.

As these platforms have “grown-up” so-to-speak, there’s no doubt they’ve acted out as a rebellious teenager (trying to get away with things they shouldn’t be doing). Add to that a pandemic, political upheaval, and everything else the world has experienced in the past year and it’s time for a change.

I found myself really burned out and avoiding social media outside of doing the bare minimum.

I’ve decided it’s time for a change.

I’m choosing to look at it all differently and for the first time in a long time feel excited about using social media again.

Happy creating!

Chirr App

An easy way to create a Twitter thread. Express longer ideas into multiple tweets.

This week’s episode of my podcast was inspired by a couple of articles on “niching” down. This isn’t an argument for or against niching down, it’s more about getting clear on what you want to do and going all in. Maybe it’s time you created your own niche?
