Being a content creator is hard because of the below 11 reasons:
1. You will continuously have to create new content. Further, there are days when you just don't feel like writing anything.
2. You will have to dedicate most of your time to creating high-quality content.
3. You will have to compete with other popular content creators in your niche.
4. You will have to stay updated with new content trends and technology in order to be successful.
5. There is no guarantee of success on every post, you might just starve if people don't engage with your content.
6. Time-consuming processes and consistent efforts are essential.
7. You have to be willing to experiment and try new things. Sometimes your content is going to be a huge success, and sometimes it's going to be a total failure.
8. It can take months or even years before you start seeing any kind of payoff from all of your hard work in the content creation world.
9. Sometimes it can be really frustrating and difficult, especially when you look at all of the other people who have far less experience than you do and are getting paid way more than you are for doing essentially the same thing as you do.
10. Persistent fear that you will fail. The worry that your work will not be well received or that perhaps your efforts were in vain. This feeling can be paralyzing at times and mentally challenging.
11. Finally, constantly write, edit, update, and publish content. It is hard to keep your audience interested and feel productive at all times.
So all in all, being a content creator isn't easy, but it can be incredibly rewarding if you're willing to put in the hard work and effort required.
