Content creation trap

I have to confess. I am in a content creation trap. I started this blog inspired by Seth Godin. And very soon I found how hard it is to write one blog post per day.

It is something that very few people can do.

And the benefits of this blog are not so clear initially.

Do I want to become famous?

Of course I do!

Will I become famous by writing one blog post per day?

I really doubt that, but the skills to plan and to follow through with the plan are important. And this is one way I can achieve my goals.

I have seen many content creators using the wrong strategies and overwhelming themselves just to get a little reward. And this is not my strategy.

But If you are a content creator, measure your progress and do things that work, otherwise your effort will be useless and you will end up wasting time.

This is the content creation trap.

The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
