I started the subreddit on August 11th, 2021 and spent awhile absolutely clueless on how to utilize or promote it. Now it’s become 1 of 10 platforms I publish content to on a daily basis as part of my semi-formalized publishing schedule for 11 active projects/segments under the @GullySteez network.
It’s hard work but it really doesn’t feel like work at all. However, there are times when the vision overwhelms me and I feel unsure of myself. There are times when it feels like I’m publishing content to an empty abyss. But then I get questions regarding the art contests or get hit up by a moderator of one of the Facebook groups and I’m reminded that these little projects are actually providing value and that’s all that matters. I’ll stay focused on that and let the chips fall wherever they fall. Constant motion.

I’ve been unemployed for almost two years and my inbox is overflowing with denial after denial for jobs I’ve applied to but the universe keeps showing me that I’m on the right path.
These past two years the GullySteez.com network has grown from 20,000 total followers to over 200,000 on social media.
Content shared to the All Things Dope group on Facebook has reached over 600,000 people in the last 28 days (the first time we ever hit that mark). And we’ve reached 1.2 million in the past 60 days.
The entire network has a monthly reach that consistently exceeds a million people per month and I just launched a centralized hub to follow the guidelines that Facebook has laid out for me to reach monetization.
I’m finally getting paid to do what I love and even though it’s not enough to supplant a full time job I know that I’m heading in that direction.
I’m also following a life long dream to take my writing seriously in the process and have integrated it into the overall plan for the network.
All things are working just the way they should be and I’ll continue to work my tail off to feed myself off my projects. I’ve said this once and I’ll say it a million times more to continue engraining it in my soul – this is a lifetime gig.
If we’ve been able to grow this much with a $0 marketing budget these past two years I can’t even imagine what’s gonna happen when I can start pouring money into everything again.
Slowly but surely. It’s Constant Motion…forever. Be You. Live R.E.A.L.
