I remember when I first started my business, I knew I wanted a well-rounded page but wasn’t too sure of how to go about it. I viewed several pages that had beautiful designs, but they all seemed to have the same layout but different niches. I knew I wanted to look different and bring my creativeness and authenticity. I pondered on the idea of “What exactly is content and what does that look like for me?”
The term content creator has replaced the old name of “Influencer”. Really they're still the same thing. Name a content creator, YOU LIKE, that has not influenced you in some way. To be quite honest, I never really liked the name influencer because it always held a negative connotation with me. It seemed the only influencer accounts I saw weren't adding value. This has changed so much in the past few years.
So, what is a content creator? A content creator is someone who creates educational or entertaining material via digital media and/or social platforms.

I’ve always viewed the world in this artistic way. I can see the beauty in anything. I think that’s what I like about art. Art doesn’t have to be perfect and neither does creativity.
