I’ve always wanted a place to share personal stories, dreams, faults, and powerful emotions. Today, I can finally say I made such a place.
Dreamly is quite literally a dream come true.
Ever since I founded Medium Dreamers on Facebook, It tore me apart to decide between investing time in my dreams or, through my experience, elevate the dreams of others.
And for a while, it seemed like I was on the right path. I opened my blog, my email list was engaging, and perhaps I knew that I was in the right direction. But, I was alone.
Hey there, Content Creator.
I assume that you started reading this article because you’re probably curious about what I want to tell you. I titled this article as an open letter to all content creators everywhere. And I just want to acknowledge that the fact that you even consider yourself a content creator is an excellent step forward in my mind.
I am sharing these words to let you know that what you started here will be an extraordinary journey. At the same time, it’s going to be very, very difficult. And I don’t want to discourage you from going…
I see many creators perfectly content in their day job, creating content on the side, never making their blog or YouTube channel, or podcast — the things they are genuinely passionate about — anything more than a hobby.
You should never have just one income stream because having only one will imprison you by whoever is paying you that money. You will not be able to take risks and tie your life to your employer. Let me show you how that felt for me a few years ago.
In December 2016, the gaming company I worked for got dismantled. We…
If you’re thinking about streaming as a serious business endeavor, you’re in the right place.
Today I want to introduce you to some community-building concepts as observed from MugsTV — A video game content creator on Facebook Gaming with the welcoming tagline — “Hugs with Mugs.”
I’m always on the hunt for a good story. I mean, between seasons of Dimension 20. As of writing these words, the season is already past the middle point and reached episode 14 (which I haven’t seen yet, so no spoilers in the comments!).
So, I figured it’s time to introduce the season to whoever heard of Dimension 20 in the past and didn’t catch The Unsleeping City yet.
Each full season has about 17–18 episodes. Episodes of the show air every Wednesday on Dropout.
This particular season is a sequel. …
“Why no one engages with my tweets? Why no one is following me? I tweet every day!”
These are questions that are still being asked in 2021. No one wants to feel alone in a sea of content like Twitter. But it also seems that many people didn’t “crack the code” yet. How do you get followers on Twitter? How to “make” people engage with your tweets? It’s fairly simple, really. You need to be interested in them first. If that makes you even more confused, read on for a more in-depth answer.
Let’s say you miraculously gained thousands of…
So, you decided. You now want to analyze and share your thoughts about Mass Effect’s inter-galactic politics in a series of blog posts. And where do you go to share it? Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.
How can you do that effectively? I mean, of course, you can use tags and reach at least some of these people. But where do they hang out? Where do you hang out?
And more importantly, how can we make them care?
Let’s go over a few platforms and how to share your content effectively.
Suppose you’re highly engaged in the conversation around your niche…
You’ve been playing games or reading some books, and you want to share your passion with the world. The problem is that you’re on a tight budget and don’t have either the time or the money to start a personal blog.
What options are available to you? Here are three platforms that you can start from without too much hassle or investment.
Starting an account on Medium is free. You don’t have to pay a single penny to start publishing there.
Medium itself is also a great source of targeted traffic. You can write on different topics if you want…
TikTok saw an influx of new people joining the app from the beginning of the Pandemic in March of 2020. I joined in April after seeing more and more people in my circles join and start making videos. But I didn’t join to become famous. I joined because it seemed fun, and there’s always something more personal about video than writing.
There’s nothing like the real deal of seeing a loved one in person, but video content comes a lot closer than blog posts, tweets, or photos on Instagram.
As I spent more time on the platform and genuinely enjoyed…
It’s a beautiful sunny Friday here in Tel Aviv. We’ve had fluctuating amounts of rain during the week, and we end it on a high note.
It’s funny to me how the world can be so different, only thousands of kilometers apart. While I enjoy the sun and clear skies here in the Middle East, many people celebrate Christmas day (or late eve if you’re on the west coast timezone) worldwide. Snow, cuddles, and presents are common. Hot cocoa, eggnog, and other holiday foods are abundant.
Perhaps more than anything — the holiday season is a time of giving and…
