The last 2 weeks have been the most stressful since I started making videos. I’m burning out.
My views & engagement are at an all-time low, whether it’s due to FB’s annoying algorithm changes or my content has been uninteresting… or both. It’s really frustrating when I put all my effort & energy into making these videos — 17 hours a day — and I’m not getting rewarded through the only measure I care about… views.
This has nothing to do with money. My ultimate goal (since I started my first travel blog in 2012) has always been the same — to inspire as many people as I can to travel the world. I want my content to reach eyeballs of people from all corners of our planet and I want to be a resource to help them plan trips and ultimately create lifelong memories.
I hope that I will get out of this funk soon, or else, I may reconsider my career as a video maker. Or I might take a 5 weeks off during my upcoming Central Africa trip which starts on Monday. We’ll see.
Thank you to all those who have stuck with me. I love you all
