Show Your Work For Sure, But Where? My Thoughts On An Austin Kleon Book
I am in the middle of reading Show Your Work by Austin Kleon and I love it. However, I am struggling with how to implement one aspect of what the book says to do, and I am wondering if you guys have any input on that. Or maybe writing about it, helps me clarify things - that happens at times.
Austin Kleon suggests that we should show some of our processes behind the scenes on a daily basis. I love that idea because I always watch people's behind the scene stuff as well, and videos and other content like that get a lot of traffic. What is not to like there? I do find interesting stuff all over the internet on a constant basis, like for example a chrome extension that I have been using since yesterday Workona (I am not affiliated, just a fan of tools that help and keep my cluttered brain under control)
This is where my dilemma comes in:
What platform should I choose to share that on?
Here are my options:
- write short posts about the stuff I find here on Wealthy Affiliate (pro: you are gentle audience; con: you are already sold on Wealthy Affiliate so no money to be made here)
- write short post on LinkedIn (pro: I got over 10,000 people following me; con: there is a lot of content on there, so it is easy to get lost in the masses)
- write a short post on my blog daily (pro: I already have the website set up and have some subscribers, which could draw in more subscribers; con: short posts don't rank well - okay they rank better than no posts, but still)
- write short tips on Facebook (pro: easy to do and schedule; con; LinkedIn is a better platform for business info, people go on Facebook to be entertained for the most part, or talk about current events in their lives)
- create a daily podcast episode (pro: I like doing podcasts, I already have one, and Anchor is easy to use; con: that would be a short episode each and every day, some very short, like this post for example. Not sure that would make a good podcast)
Of course, I could do some kind of combination of all of that as well. I do really like that idea as I said in the beginning. It is exactly the kind of content, I would consume, and judging by the ratings of others who are doing something to that effect, other people find that interesting as well.
What do you think? If it was your choice, which would you choose, or would you choose something completely different? (By the way, the niche is low content and no content publishing).
Thanks for reading my ramblings!
