Is there anything more terrifying than staring at a blinking cursor on a blank screen? As social practitioners, we’ve all felt the intimidation of a blank screen in some way or another.
The everyday grind of a social media manager is tough. Crafting content that captures attention and fosters engagement isn’t always easy. This intense pressure to continuously churn out incredible content day in, day out, can drain the creative energy out of you and even lead to burning out.
