The other day, someone told me, “why do you take up so much up on yourself, when clearly, you are stretching?”

Today morning, as I write this piece, I am feeling a little burned out.

The last 45 days have been mad.

When I began writing on Medium in September 2021, I was just a writer.

But I wanted more.

I kept looking around, I kept learning. I paused, I analysed, I made improvements.

I diversified to other platforms like Twitter and Quora.

After 14 months of unsuccessful toiling on these platforms, I started 2023 with a hell-bent determination to make $$ from my writing.

How?

By taking my writing to LinkedIn and working on building my personal brand.

Choosing LinkedIn over Medium was a big change.

I was no longer, just a ‘writer’.

I became a CREATOR.

Now, along with being a writer, I am also —

  • Editing
  • Scheduling
  • Creating visuals
