Hi everyone, Happy Monday! I hope you have all been doing well this past week. I know there has been so much going on, with the virus continuing to spread throughout the states and the death of George Floyd. Honestly, I’m not sure what exactly to say. My heart is broken for the state of our world. I’ve been posting some resources on Instagram for ways you can help with Floyd’s case and trying my best to post helpful and encouraging words. I have not been active on my Instagram feed in hopes that positive voices from the community can be heard. I needed to address these things before making another post and let you guys know that I’m always here for support and help in any way I can. I encourage you all to have constructive conversations with your friends, siblings, parents, and significant others. There’s a lot of different opinions circulating around social media but personally I want to spread love and unity. As a Christian, Jesus teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves and that’s what I am 100% prepared to do in a situation like this. I believe prayer is the most powerful tool we have to encourage change in the world. Our God is capable of ANYTHING, including bringing an end to injustices and oppression. We need to be supportive. We need to heal. We will get there. I am not perfect, however I’m constantly trying to be better and to do better. I would like to continue posting on my blog and on Instagram with new eyes and continue to be a support system for anyone who needs it.

With that being said, I know a lot of you come from so many different backgrounds and that is beautiful! We all have unique perspectives that we can learn from, so I wanted to share a platform where you can write about subjects you love and feel you can contribute to. Medium.com is a place where you can share your own articles with the writing community. I’ve gone through a few articles from people just like you and me, and they’ve been so insightful! You can write about a variety of different topics from education, art, gaming, marketing, and more. Not only are these articles fun to read, but if you sign up to become a writer you have the potential to get paid for it! How cool is that? If you adore writing or sharing information with the world, this could be a fantastic opportunity for you. I have personally started writing articles on medium, and it’s been so fulfilling for me to dive more into my experience as a content creator and share my tips that can help others. If you want, you can follow my profile here on Medium. I’d love to check out your articles as well!
Here are my two most recent articles, specifically geared towards those who are interested in getting into content creation:

I also want to mention the two videos I watched from Shelby Church, which aided in my research on Medium. In her videos, Shelby writes Medium articles herself and reviews how they performed. It’s a very intriguing watch and I love her series on testing platforms like this. After reading more about Medium, you can also become a member to be able to read endless amounts of articles, perfect for the avid reader!
I hope this information is helpful to any of you who love to write or read! It really has been an exciting new platform to explore. There are also plenty of Medium Facebook groups for you to join to gain support for your articles. Be sure to leave links to your Medium pages in the comments! Of course, I will continue to show my support for the Floyd family during this difficult time and help in productive ways. I’ll talk to you all very soon!
