Why I Haven’t Been Posting

Cindy Tillory Avatar

Hello again, it’s me, Cindy. It’s been a while since I put together an article, and I don’t know when I will post again in the foreseeable future. I want to preface this by saying that it’s not you, it’s me. 100% me (why does this feel like a breakup, I promise this is not that dramatic). know that I want to be a person with a platform but I have no idea if this is the platform for me, or whether or not I’m using this platform correctly. Also, how does a 30-something even start one these days?

Speaking of Platforms, I’m definitely not a TikTok kind of person.

I don’t know if I can be a YouTube-y person. I have some basic knowledge of editing like what is a Cut vs a Jump Cut, but I don’t shoot to edit. I just shoot to shoot. I don’t know my camera very well or understand certain angles that can convey a story. because of this, even if I could get an editor, it would still probably be crap for a while until I got some basic understanding of film. It’s like that old saying goes “You don’t know what you don’t know.” So basically I didn’t know being a one-woman show is really more work than I expected.

Late-Start.com was always a dream for me.

I’ve been thinking about this for some time now, making Late-Start more than just a blog, a cross-platform brand is going to take more work and a lot more things than I know how to do right now. there would be an obvious content shift. I am not a mental health professional or a professional of any kind. I think that doing this kind of writing obscures that fact. I may understand the lived experience of my condition, but not anyone else’s. now because of this, I have been hesitant to do any more writing on mental health in general.

Having this platform to express my thoughts and inner self has always been a dream for me. I never had the capital to engage in the social internet in my earlier years so I thought 30 would just be my time. So I picked a platform that seemed reputable to my age and though I don’t regret it, I see that if it’s a platform that I don’t typically use and that makes it harder to understand it and my voice.

So what did we learn today?

Don’t start a long-term project without some basic understanding of what you want and like. Also without a set format to follow, I tend to ramble. 🙃
