Storytelling has been such a big part of my life – specifically for the last 10 years. Between going to school for Broadcasting & Film (my program had an emphasis on storytelling) and then entering the broadcasting industry, I guess you can say that storytelling is my job! What I learned in this course is how to translate that storytelling into digital content. How to convey those stories and messages through written words, and sharing them. Guiding myself through the pyramid method, for example, I learned how to properly structure a story for digital content.
I want to share entertaining stores, I want to share news and information, I want my audience to walk away from my content feeling like they learned something interesting or something they didn’t know before. Sometimes it may better their lives (if it’s a health and wellness article for example), a local news tidbit, and sometimes it may just be fluff (like the latest Kardashian story for example). As long as they walk away feeling something, then I’ll know that I did my job properly. The ultimate goal is evoking some sort of emotion while entertaining through my content, and if I can do that, then I’ll be happy.
