The first sentence is always the hardest so...

I think the best beginning would be just to start to tell you some words about myself I guess... My name is Terry I am 28 years old and my good friend just told me about this page. I used to have a blog where I was typically just writing about my life and I was trying to express myself and my feelings and as an introvert I really enjoy that and I must say I was building kind of an good audience or readers...

When reading blogs was appreciated - It was before instagram was a trend..

I was very happy about it even if I was not making barely any money from it I just enjoyed that that I can just go for an walk with my camera , do some random shots and then I wrote about it how my day was or I wrote about some interesting facts , or about some conspiracy theories or I would just do a post about some music that I enjoyed..

It was basically everything what you post on instagram these days but at that time there was no instagram so yeah It was pretty exiting for me and I was glad that it was appreciated. I was slowly building a good community of people but sadly after some time I did not had enough time for that in my life and I just loose the creativity and motivation so I just kind of ended that and it was at that time when instagram comes and it appears to be a trend. It was a long time ago thinking about it now. It was that time when reading blogs used to be cool before I guess. Thinking about it now I think that all those social medias like instagram was really killing the creativity in me. Am I the only one who feels this way ? I mean all those social medias used to be helping us to socialise more isnt it right ? But I felt more lonely and lost more than I felt like I was being creative...

Does instagram kill the creativity?

The time when I feel creative on instagram was when I end up with idea of the profile on Instagram who served to be an open community for all artists from art lovers to beginners to pro artists. I was creating an art challenges for beginners artist , I was doing live streams there talking to all those artist and get to know people who love art like me and I must say I build a really good space for artists. I get to know so many cool people who became my friends later and It was so cool... BUT! There is sadly always a but , and it was that kind of artists who used my profile page just to get a free share for their artwork. I mean my idea was to create a strong community of an artists but I felt kind of used. I mean so many artists just care about to get their art shared and to get follows and likes.. Is the quality of the art really about how many likes and follows does the artist have on instagram ? I never really get that idea to be honest. So many times I was working on my drawing for at least 12 hours and when I finish it before I posted it on the instagram I was feeling really proud on myself that I am seeing some progress but after I post it on the instagram it gets like 13 likes there... And my happiness was gone.... Just like that... After that I realise there are 2 types of Artists.

  1. Artist - who make art just for themselves to see a progress in their skills and it makes them happy..

  2. Artist who are making art just to post it online to earn compliments and likes and follows ...

Please dont get me wrong If you are an proffesional artist who post your artwork on social media to build an audience for your bussiness I know its necessary - honestly thats the gold exeption. But its not my case. I do art just for myself to zone out from everything negative. I just love to swim in the paper , swim in my thoughts and just to create something that I can be proud of.

Please let me know your thoughts on these topics..

How do you feel about art ? Are you considering yourself to be an art lover or creator? And if you do art why do you do art ? Do you post your artwork on social medias ? If yes you do feel appreciated as an artist on Instagram or on other social medias ? I have so many questions.. Am I the only one who creates art just for myself and who is not posting my art because posting my artwork is literally depressing for me ? I have so many questions and I love to hear your thoughts about this :)

thanks for all your ideas and thoughts

Terry

I can understand that viewpoint but i don't think Instagram will ever be an ideal place to createan artists community. The lack of communication and some people's vanity doesn't look like it will alow them to get upstaged anywhere

Madness

The greatest madness in the world is to love someone, because before we love, we know that love has a lot of suffering, yet we leave that love behind, and knowingly embrace suffering, and that is great madness.

Welcome to read.cash. You will meet more creative people and introverts here. Reading is a thing, issue here too. It's not writing that attracts people but the idea you can earn a lot in a very fast way by just dropping some words. This means "fast publishing and leaving, spamming, plagiarism. All unwanted behavior and hard to find. I hope you meet some real readers. Many followers bring you nothing, that's for sure.

Happy writing. 🍀
