I was reminded of this after I got a message that said to “Keep making great content!”
Seriously? You can’t even name what I make?
I think of myself as a blogger, writer and cartoonist. I don’t think of myself as someone who just makes content. It offends me that you can’t name the things I write and draw.
Content sounds dull. Content is not compelling. Content is a bland, tasteless gruel that we have shoved down our throats daily.
If content is king, he is a vague and nondescript king.
Who grows up thinking, “I want to make content when I grow up!” No one. Because people don’t just create content.
Writers write blogs. Artists draw pictures. Filmmakers make videos.
And any generic person can make weak, boring content. It takes a person with guts to make something real and defined.
