In social media jobs, numbers matter.
The higher your metrics go, the more successful your campaign or post was.
On the other hand, if you’re a budding content creator with no following, you likely don’t have hundreds of people engaging with your content. That’s okay.
While numbers and metrics have their own time and place, I’d say there is a huge advantage to nobody liking your content as an independent creative professional.
It’s liberating to create for yourself and no-one else.
One of the best feelings in the world is getting to work on your art without having to worry about what other people think.
More importantly, when you create work for yourself, suddenly the numbers matter less and less.
When what you seek isn’t metric success but self-expression, it’s a lot easier to make projects you like.
Don’t focus on metrics.
Create and share things that you care about.

True that! It really is empowering to work on the craft before getting the attention, because then we’ll have garnered the root skill that will get attention in the first place. Great reminder. Thanks for sharing!
