Algorithms versus your artistic vision. 🎨 ✍️
It's always finishing the books for me first, then a walk into nature to reflect, and of course, kindreds. Social media is an expression of my art and voice, and whenever I've tried to make it business, it hurts my body, and I think the creative work. Thanks for this reflection.
Oh my gosh, yes. Nodding as I read this. My 'best ever' instagram reel was a watermelon in my garden along with the Harry Styles song "watermelon sugar" which took approximately 60 seconds to film and put together.
Here's to reclaiming our agency (even if the alg. doesn't like it...but it's not alive, so I say it doesn't get a vote..)
Yep, it's exhausting. As a creative, it seems like I do all this work but no one sees it. I want to promote my book, but I can get past the algorithms. I want to create and connect, which seems to be happening better here on Substack than anywhere else. But I do keep trying because I know the potential is there, but getting through the noise is so hard.
