The State of Things

The state of things. There's a saying that goes something like "Jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down." Basically saying, if you procrastinate you'll never know what you got going until you jump off and get going. 

I got to thinking about a lot of... well, things. 

As usual. 

And something I've been pondering upon has been where to go from this point. 

What direction. 

As it is, I am writing a blog and doing videos, for the most part, that attempt to help other writers in a way of seeing the path and what happens along that path. 

It may not be something all writers go through, but there can be quite a few similarities. 

If you can take away something that helps, then this post and other things I do in this vain have done their job. 

Then again, perhaps this info won't even be considered until I am "successful" at this--which of course can take on a whole bunch of different meanings to different people. 

And that's okay. 

I opened the door. 

If not for my niche content, then for a way of breaking the ice and getting into the whole social thing. 

And that's good. 

The show with Gary Buller is going well, and there are plans to make it better. 

Of course, some have asked why YouTube? 

Well, it's a different avenue of discovery. 

See, Twitter and others, but mostly Twitter, has a lot of artists and writers connecting with their peers. 

And that's fine, there's nothing wrong with that. 

But at some point you want to have fans look at your stuff. And there are fans out there, perhaps, but I just thought, at this point (because remember, you can always switch up your strategy) that those fans could possibly be on other platforms. 

Remember, there are billions of people in this world, you having a few thousand peers following you is very tiny compared. 

On top of that, you get these people who do that Twitter scam where they follow you, you follow back, they unfollow you, and they have sometimes impossible amounts of followers for being someone you've never heard of. 

Now, of course there are artists like Yani who people have probably never heard of, but he's one of the most famous musicians unheard of. (Does that make sense?) But you know what I mean. 

So it's possible, but the probability of finding so many of these accounts who have built followings greater than that of known authors or actors is ridiculous. 

And of course there's the writing, what all this is pointing at. 

So I figured, another platform, only to fans, of course you can have your support base, that's perfect if you have one, but you want to branch out and take flight. 

You've built your wings, now open them and get some air under them. The ground is coming fast, and you have to have them to soar. 

You can do it.

What are you doing at this moment in time to progress your brand? Do you have a plan of action?
