Going deeper into social media.
I have never been one to enjoy being in front of a camera. I am not so fond of my voice either. But I am going to take this step into the great unknown of the TikTok world.
All the interviews and photo’s I have taken as of late are also going to be available as TikTok and YouTube content. Yup, I am going to take a giant leap of faith and put myself out there. I feel that this is a big step for me. I would consider myself an introvert and while I am not shy, I would say I am reserved.
Not for nothing, but when we played soccer, I had absolutely no reservations about getting changed at the side of the field. I guess that is a different type of shyness or lack thereof than appearing in front of a camera.
This one is a hit and misses with me and sometimes I am fine with it and sometimes I am nervous as hell. When I gave a two-and-a-half-hour lecture to a class of college students at Humber Collage I loved it. Yet certain settings are more nerve-racking than others.
So being on camera one on one with the locals seems to be alright for me for now. If I get into bigger settings who knows what will happen? For the time being, I am going to make my YouTube and TikTok links available here, and let’s see how things go in the future.
It is informative and fun.
Having locals like Arik, Kevien and Pak Nyoman on my channel has given me great insights into the locals and their lives. While we are all so similar, we are all so different with many commonalities that should make us appreciate each other.
What I find is that when we look at the small picture, we are all so close…
It is when we open up to bigger concepts and talk about things such as large-scale business or bigger conversations about the world, is when things change. They are less inclined to look at other parts of the world on social media and usually follow locals on the platforms.
I am very unsure how my #countercontent movement will go. Most if not all social media in Bali is based on the wow factor. The beaches the sunset, the waterfalls, and the food.
My focus will be locals and it will be the very opposite of what is currently out there. Most of the content revolves around tourists bragging about where they have been, how cheap things are, and complaining about the traffic.
Let’s see if the local language, the content, and my delivery will get me any views. Bali is hot, so on some videos, I am clearly overheating. Not so much because of the heat but more because of the nerves. If you do follow up and watch some of my content, get ready to see a bald white man sweating on some of the videos.
