You’ve finally finished your masterpiece. You’re beaming.

You feel good about it this time.

Could this be your big break?

You’ve added a funky title and some trendy hashtags.

You hit publish, feeling a mix of excitement and some trepidation.

An hour later…

Three measly likes and a comment from a stalker.

What happened?

Doesn’t the world appreciate quality art/tweets/photography/film-making/writing anymore?

Online guru guy said create GREAT content. That’s precisely what you did.

What gives?

Maybe you do suck after all.

Your motivation to do more is out the window.

It could be days…weeks until you build up the courage to create something new.

. . .

Crappy traction.

Anyone who has had anything to share with the world has been there.

Your confidence may have taken a hit, but the last thing you want to do now is to create less.
