I made a New Year’s resolution to manage my time better so that I can be more productive in creating content. In order to have more time, I exited Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn. You don’t realize how much time is consumed on social media until you leave. Since exiting, I am more free to create.
I have spent the better part of the last year converting seven of my in person college courses to asynchronous online courses. So far, that equates to over 250 videos of at least 20 minutes length each. I will be creating more over the coming summer months.
In addition to creating content for my job, I have also been creating videos for my YouTube channel, and for a school for girls that I have started (Sophia School Podcast).
Did you know that I own and operate a niche publishing company? Public Philosophy Press continues to grow, and we recently started a theology imprint called Logos Papers Press. We currently have four books in various stages of production and hope to continue to publish quality philosophy and theology books.
Getting off of social media has allowed me to have more time to create and publish, but I also missed having philosophical conversation with likeminded people. In order to be more intentional about my social media interaction, I created an intellectual community on the Locals platform. I would like to invite you to join me and my friends in the conversation at Locals. I post some exclusive content there, we have monthly Zoom meetings, and regular conversation over relevant posts.
