While it’s easy to criticise the overtly intense ‘sharing culture’ that has become prominent thanks to social media and many other platforms like it, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with documenting your world, and utilizing these platforms to help you connect with people, find communities, and to discuss ideas. However, there are better and worse ways to go about it. No matter if you simply want to chronicle your day to day life, put on a show online, or perhaps document something amazing such as a wedding or birthday, sometimes learning HOW to share in the right way can help you enjoy this process much more profoundly.
Consider our simple tips to help you document your world, and how to go about it well. If you do this, you might make this a lifelong hobby, giving you plenty of personal content to look back on over the years.
It’s easy for people to try and open themselves up to the world without thinking of the long-term consequences that involves. It might be they feel tempted to share their full name, pictures of their homes, their children, the streets they live on, the times of belongings they have, among many other things. Remember that if this is publicly accessible, anyone can access it. This might be a tempting to think about when trying to raise your personal platform, especially if trying to promote raw, honest and daily content. However, it might be that keeping some of your personal life private can help you stay safe, prevent having online dangers come to your doorstep, and also give you that sense of privacy every human being needs to feel sane and supported.
Why not bring a sense of fun and showmanship to your personal documentation? This helps you not only enjoy the day more, but gives your personal content a vibrant edge. It might be via hiring a photo booth for your wedding guests, or perhaps signing onto new experiences and going out of your comfort zone to potentially help you live your life with the most fun and optimism on a daily basis. No matter who you are, it’s not hard to see how this can lend a feeling of true excitement to this entire process. After all, if you can’t enjoy it, who can?
Having fun with documenting your world can be worthwhile. It might be that learning some basic to intermediate editing skills can help your footage take on a new life. It’s one thing to show your family pictures from your recent vacation, but it’s quite another to show them a mini-documentary you have pieced together from the footage you’ve taken. Of course, there’s no need to go too professional here if you’re not interested in that, but the process of documenting your world can often take on a wonderful new light if you’re willing to invest a little time and effort in the process of refining your creativity.
With these simple tips, documenting your world is sure to be a worthwhile and incredibly rewarding cause.
