Content is King
If you haven’t noticed, the interweb is changing around us everyday. I have recently asked myself, am I changing with it or am I being left behind? What have I done to share in the creation of content?
My first jump into original content was to create a blog. It’s a great way of sharing my thoughts and ideas without too many obstacles. It has given me an opinion and it allows me to be in control of the conversation. What I should be writing about has become my biggest road block. I love reading original content but feel I am not very skilled at crafting my own. I will continue to try to write more content and we can only hope it gets better the more I write. What’s the worst that can happen, right?
Where does one absorb content? Twitter has become a great in-road for daily and fresh content. Twitter lets me be in the driver’s seat. I read what I want and I share when I find it applicable. It gives me total control. I can be part of a local topic in Savannah or dive into something regional or national. I almost never find myself surfing the web anymore for something to read. My twitter feed tell me where to go and what to read. The people I am following are shaping the content I read. Every once in a while some of those connections get stale. One reason I enjoy using twitter so much is that it is ever-changing and continues to evolve.
One of the major things I enjoy taking away from the web is content. It continues to drive me in new directions. However, I believe it is not enough to consume content and not create your own. One who consumes but does not create is being left out of the conversation. One who creates but does not consume is missing out in the real connections. It takes a healthy amount of both to achieve the ideal ‘Perfectly Balanced Content Breakfast.’
And I love me some breakfast…
