Erica Barry’s Roadmap to Success in Today’s Digital Revolution
Since her youth, Erica Barry has always had a craft for content creation. She started her very first blog, “Cannella Vita,” as a high school freshman. Barry spent countless hours experimenting with and perfecting recipes for all kinds of complex desserts and pastries. From French macarons to butter croissants, Barry fell in love with baking.
“There is no better feeling than a batch of macarons finally turning out perfectly after having to throw out the last four batches,” Barry says, laughing.
Baking was not the only thing Barry fell in love with; she quickly realized her passion for content creation. She reminisces, “I was only 14, and I didn’t have a television show, a videographer, or a studio kitchen set, but after I started photographing and blogging about my recipes on BlogSpot as a way to keep track of them, one thing led to another.”
Since her initial leap into the digital world of content creation, Barry has become one of the most well-rounded and well-versed content creators out there. With her niche in the writing and publishing sphere, it only made sense for Barry to branch out, pushing herself to write and publish her first book, “Don’t Wait, Create: How to Be a Content Creator in the New Digital Revolution!”
Inspired by content creators who had made their mark on platforms such as YouTube, TikTok and Instagram, Barry quickly found, however, that no comprehensive guide existed for the various approaches to create content or to curate a digital presence.
Taking her frustration by this lack of readily available information, Barry began writing her own how-to guide for navigating the digital landscape as a content creator. Add to that her fascination with the impact the digital revolution has on creativity, representation and entrepreneurship, Barry realized she had all the tools and insight needed to create a meaningful roadmap to, in her own words, “digital content creation and finding one’s creative voice.”
Barry describes the book as a ‘roadmap’ that highlights the journeys of other creators who have found their own success in the digital world. She cites Bo Burnham, Chloe Fineman, Jimmy Tatro, and many others in her guidebook.
Fast forward through many sleepless nights and long days of research, and Barry’s first book is out on all major platforms. “Don’t Wait, Create: How to Be a Content Creator in the New Digital Revolution!” is truly a one-stop shop for anyone who wants to create a meaningful and authentic presence on any content-based platform.
“Authenticity is paramount for me as a writer and creator,” Barry explains. “Some of the best advice I have received is: ‘create content as if you are speaking to your best friend.’ Thus, I try to keep that tone in all of my projects.”
Staying true to her value of authenticity, Barry’s book maintains a lighthearted tone without diminishing the intricacies of digital content creation. From finding your voice to creating revenue streams, Barry’s guidebook really does cover everything one needs to know to become a successful content creator.
Though newly released, “Don’t Wait, Create: How to Be a Content Creator in the New Digital Revolution!” has already caught the attention of major players across the entertainment and media industries.
