Creating things online
There is an untapped potential for us to attract even more users from around the internet. I knew about few little things about the fediverse beforehand, but actually had not joined it, on youtube there is only a few videos talking about the fediverse, varying a bit from informative to not so. after I knew exactly what it was I was immediately interested in the concept of federation. I remember seeing one person saying their instance suddenly had a bunch of users coming in, and it was because someone had covered about the fediverse and linked their instance. This information is useful to us.
I know none of you people here are youtubers or content creators. In writing and researching things I intend to help myself if no one else.
I've always want to create things in the cybre-space. and have I not know what exactly the reason is, at the start it was maybe I looked into blogs and people were writing about what's happening to them, like diaries. The more obscure things that people do in these blogs, They create stuff that shake the core of my spine, Gruesome, bloody-eyed creatures, who in which have difficulty in posing in an angle, like a ghost oblivious to It's surrounding, therefore, acts only in a grotesque way. Things you might not usually see people make in real life, these things aren't necessarily bad, but unusual. in real life people tend to hide their uniqueness because of social norms. In the video creator space also, there was those kinds of people who do whatever they wanted.
This doesn't mean that you have to become unique, that's not the point. Do what you want to do, you already have something in you, your own passion and character will lead you to that answer, and it will change from time to time, don't let other's expectations or view of you destroy your potential. the keyword is embracing everything even when It's a flaw, being comfortable in your own body. That's when people become something more. There is this perfectionist mistake people tend to have; when they start out they tend to wait until they have reached an ideal position. whether it's if they have the ideal equipment or It's the "perfect" creation idea for their first video or blog. You can start even with your awkward/weird way of speaking (I'm one of them), or a mundane topic. So, Do it now, I dare you to.
If you're waiting to do it, You'll never do it.
When you start making videos/blogs/etc. (as this is the fedivangelism community) there is a few things I'd like everyone to do together.
First thing to do in non-fediverse platforms, you need to use your fediverse handle as your name e.g. `Lain (@firstname.lastname@example.org)`, this is to normalize the idea of fediverse' existence. then after you can put links to your fediverse socials, whether on a youtube video description or on a profile bio. If you want to give more effort you could let know your followers that you're there. For on example in a youtube video:
"I'm on a decentralized platform called peertube, You can find the link in the description." *video starts here*
