This past year has been quite interesting. Besides the fact that I changed jobs I have changed a lot of my focus into how I look and work with technology. I have started to realize that at the nucleus of who I am I love being a creator the most. I love creating content that others engage on.
You could probably say, but how can that be when you have not written anything meaningful in a long time in your “creative” outlet. However that is not completely true.
When I start looking at the trajectory of my creation over the past 5 years it has slowly but surely morphed into creating a different type of content. It might not be the content that everyone gets to see, but it is still meaningful content.
I have been a guest speaker in multiple conferences. I have also had the chance to be a keynote speaker for a conference as well. While my audience has been mostly technical or corporate in nature, the truth is that creating the content to present and getting in front of people has been some of the most rewarding things I have done.
There is a chance that I might pick up this medium again little by little. The fact that I am writing twice this week is already impressive. I find it incredibly rewarding to be able to put words together to convey a message. I love communication and practicing is the only way to get better at it.
I might have to also start exploring another format as well, maybe video or podcasting again. For now I am proud of the fact that some of the presentations I have done in the recent years have been well received and I will continue to make sure I produce meaningful content, regardless of the size of the audience.
