I’m reconnecting my personal Instagram to the account.
Although I know there is no need to justify it, a little elaboration will alleviate stress on my personal agenda while confronting an issue regarding a social network misconception.
My endeavors on Youtube, a quite large undertaking, has to go on hiatus for multiple reasons. The first is due to lack of resources needed/wanted in order to make content (aside from simple mac-vlogging) up to the quality I’m capable of producing. My personal issue with furthering my journey is my conflit with my true identity affiliated with the channel.
On a personal level, self-identity always may remain preserved, but in the highly public and judgmental realm of social media platforms, identity is fundamentally allowed to become fabricated by the user’s design.
When I started my vlogging journey, I wanted the appeal to be professional so I censored and detached my true identity with the network I was building. I concealed any trace of who I am connected to account. Partly because some very old, unprofessional, content that resides in my social media footprint, and partly because of the potential of high traffic viewership and the need to protect myself, as the person on my birth certificate. I felt as if I was creating a facade that detached my identity from the idea that I want to create. In part it felt dishonest.
Looking back, the need to hide is rendering more insignificant. This blog and what is attached to it is a symbiotic projection of my mental vomit. I’d rather network to an audience I’m perfectly honest with. This is me. Whatever is buried here is treasure.
I am going to continue on my path to a flourishing blogger, adjusting mediums and networks as needed.
Be true to you
