Your worth is not tied to your productivity. Create because your art deserves to exist, not because the rat race of social media tells you you’re useless if you don’t produce “content” fast enough. Otherwise we’re just unpaid workers for big tech’s profits.

I'm so grateful that the Fediverse feels very different in that regard. 💗

@doktorno If your main income source is commissions from private individuals a steady social media presence is important. But it’s important not to conflate yourself as a person with the persona you created - once you tie those two together, every post that underperforms will scratch your sense of self-worth, you’re handing the keys to your happiness to Zuckerberg

You can still post on a regular basis, but it can be on your schedule, not the platforms’.
