So the idea I have, although not entirely unique, I think would do good as a blog. I just don't think I posses the savvy to execute it in a dope way. So as it stands now I am UNEMPLOYED.
I sat for a while thinking about why people like watching TV shows like The Walking Dead, or the old Trilogy Star Wars or the Marvel Cinematic Universe and many others. People like to see the protagonist in a story progress or undertake a journey from point A to Point B and overcome what ever adversity there is during the journey.
I also noticed above all else people like a rags to riches story. I want to approach creating a blog from the prospect of a shithead and a failure who is progressing upwards despite the winding roads, obstacles twist and turns that he has to meander. In this blog we're basically dealing with an individual who is at his wits end and won't stay down in the corner he has been backed into but has an endearing and humorous cynicism to him.
Essentially the message he is trying to spread is that just because your unemployed doesn't mean you have to just lie down and die. I think it has the potential to be inspiring although it is not a unique idea within itself.
Social Media Execution:
So the problem is is that I think I know to little about social media. I have set up a blog already with another niche that I am semi familiar with but quit because I didn't have enough experience to turn that into a business. I have already written blog post and posted them to twitter and posted videos on my Instagram and Facebook linking them back to my blog post but I still know nothing about how to use platforms like Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google Plus, or Snapchat. I know the general idea behind these mediums: You post stuff on there and people watch. The thing is I have no idea about strategies I can use to garner as much views to my content as possible.
So I plan on creating video content without showing my face. I have a problem with shooting shitty quality video on the phone camera I have now. I can't afford the camera I want to shoot the kind of videos I want. I am currently researching ways that I can release good video content using animation and memes and stuff. A couple videos like DJ Akedemiks, Looper and WatchMojo give me an idea on how to do that but the again I feel like that technique might be kind of played out being that I don't think there is any originality anymore.
I AM INTROVERTED:
So when I was working I used to travel around NY and go outside a lot. When I stopped working I stopped going out because I now have to use that money to eat, pay whatever debts I have and use for transportation to interviews.
I feel like not going outside goes against the vision of what I want my blog to be which in turn makes it difficult to create content. I plan on just creating content on stuff like movies I watch, products I am interested in buying, YouTube videos I like, Technology News, Changes and nuances in current culture and artistic endeavors that I can practice being good at in an enclosed space like drawing or chess or something. I feel however that this too has been done before
Well currently I think the best resource I have on my side is time and unlimited internet access (Thank God I payed my internet bill for the entire year!!)
Not enough experience.
No access to top tier software to edit videos or knowledge on programming and visual design to code my own UNIQUE website.
No money to spend on paid ads. I think this one of all is the one that hurts me the most. It might be good in the sense that it might lead to me coming up with ways to generate free traffic, which I know nothing about.
No top tier microphone to record podcast media
NO UNIQUE IDEA OR PRODUCT AND SERVICE OF MY OWN TO START!!
Should I just wait until I have more money to start. I can swallow the bitter herb guys. If I don't have enough resources at my fingertips to carry this through now then the best thing I can do is probably wait. If not I can get started working on it tomorrow. I hear all kind of shit about unemployed bloggers going from zero to hero but I am very cynical when I hear them speak on it as almost everything cost money. I want to execute on realistic strategies that can actually put me ahead that I can apply NOW.
