November 6, 2023

blogging the answer to social media burnout for photographers

Grab your coffee, put your feet up, and let’s dive deep into a crisis that’s sweeping through our creative tribe like wildfire—social media burnout that’s snuffing out our artistry, our passion, and yeah, even our souls. Sound dramatic? Maybe, but when it feels like every ‘ding’ from your phone is another drop in the bucket that’s drowning your creative spirit, it’s time for some serious talk.

You know the drill. Your phone buzzes with notifications—another like, another comment, another follow. It should be exhilarating, right? But instead, each alert feels like a chain pulling you deeper into an ocean of anxiety and creative paralysis. You’re swiping, you’re scrolling, and the worst part? You’re barely shooting anymore. That camera, your third eye, your extension of self, starts collecting dust while you rack your brain for the perfect caption, the perfect hashtag, the perfect ‘moment’ to share in 1080px squares.

Feeling overwhelmed by likes, shares, and the relentless pursuit of social media ‘success’? Trust me you’re not alone. But here’s the good news: we’re going to explore a lifebuoy today, a way out of this virtual undertow that’s been tugging you away from what you really love—capturing the beauty of life through your lens.
