A little progress each day adds up to the biggest of results.
The meaning behind this particular quote is especially well received today! I have only been back to the steem universe for approximately twenty days but have already hit some minor content creation hiccups. I have enjoyed putting out lots of short little works entirely through my phone with the occasional slightly longer craft post...but that is all about to change.
I am still catching up with all of the changes around here...and for some reason it took me awhile to comprehend the fact that Partiko is broken and has been abandoned. Not certain what happened there...but this will be the last post submitted through that application. All the problems and glitches finally caught up with me and I have been looking for an alternative way to post from my phone. Well...besides just logging into the website which isn't a perfect solution.
Not sure why both the main website and Steempeak keep logging me out while viewing them from this phone. It has been super frustrating just to perform basic tasks...seeing as I checked and rechecked and do not have any automatic browser settings to clear cache or history or anything like that. I thought about using keychain...but this would still require repeated logins. Now it might sound somewhat lazy...but I feel that logging back in several times a day just feels counter intuitive and is still a major time and productivity drain. Which leads me back to the only other mobile friendly option that I am currently aware of existing!
I have never had much luck with the Esteem mobile application before...but decided to give it another chance seeing as it has been over half a year since the last time that I tried to use it. This ended up being a big mistake because even while using a different phone with the newest update...exactly the same glitchy experience happened! Esteem refuses to load but will still bombard me with notifications...and no way to actually tap and see them. That was disappointing!
So...after all this happened the best and really the only real option seems to be getting back into the habit of posting from my desktop computer and using Buffer to post to Instagram. I was very much looking forward to starting over with a fresh new account and making no mistakes! Less than one month in...and already seeing the need to make changes. Continuing to use Partiko even in whatever capacity it still functions...seems kinda pointless because it would never last. I would still need to search for some other alternative means to get content out there later on.
Pausing the current dailies and other planned content in order to get used to desktop again...and make new templates is a proactive measure that will hopefully ensure no more hiccups going forward! With my phone...I was able to save the images to cloud and write and publish the written portion of things moments before submitting. With my health limitations and using desktop computer...I can no longer work this spontaneously. The quote graphics and artwork themselves are already being made a few days in advance...so this seems to be the natural progression. At first glance...it looks like the new workflow will require the need to prearrange everything including the text at least one day in advance. Sounds great! Apart from the fact that leaving short thoughts and personal 'in the moment' daily updates will not be possible with scheduled content. This shouldn't make too much of a difference as long as I still strive to put something interesting and unique on there to read besides the same disclaimers.
In light of this whole thing...I will probably be making some minor edits to previous posts just to make them more compatible and visually seamless alongside the new post templates. Not sure how new edit blocks effect auto votes and potential gina notifications...I just hope nothing funky happens. At least my following is still small enough not to cause too large of an inconvenience. Instead of seeing this little debacle as an unfortunate setback and classic 'me' behavior...I am choosing to see this pause as the predestined opportunity to continue building something bigger and better and more lasting! This feels like one of those times where the signs to go in another direction...will only keep multiplying until I stop and listen!
Nobody always gets things exactly right the first time...or even the second or third time. The most important thing that I have discovered in situations like this one...is to never stop trying to make improvements even though they won't always be easy ones to make. A little progress each day really does add up to the biggest of results...as long as we never stop going forward! I don't have an estimated timeline to be back in action...but please stay tuned and consider following me for when I return with more morning quotes, afternoon artwork, fair trade product features, random crafts and quite a lot of other unannounced creative content. I am excited for what the future holds!
This post is part of an ongoing series of graphics with various positive quotes, phrases and mantras for daily living. I did not originally come up with most of these...but enjoyed them so very much that I wanted to share them on fresh graphics of my own creation. On applicable posts feel free to message me about adding credit for the text...however in some cases no definitive source can be found or one is otherwise unnecessary. Each image is intended to serve as a loving affirmation or source of inspiration and the words have already helped me personally in some significant way. There is a sort of magic in finding the perfect dose of encouragement right when you need to see it most...and I hope these also help out anyone on their own journeys who come across them! Follow me...to see further messages of universal wisdom and guidance each morning.
You can support my daily work with a direct donation. This will give me the freedom to spend more time making creative content!
