I’ve been in the blog slumps over the last couple weeks, but really, it’s mainly due to Instagram. I know I shouldn’t let a social media platform dictate my happiness, but after working hard to build an extension of HTC there and seeing my engagement go down because #algorithims, I’ve been feeling pretty woe-is-me. But, I decided that I needed to stop throwing a pity party and focus back in on where everything started: my actual blog!
I had to remind myself that one: Instagram does not make the world go round. While it is important to my brand and story-telling, I don’t own Instagram and I could wake up tomorrow and find that my account was gone. I will ALWAYS own my blog and that is something that can never be taken from me.
And two: I didn’t start blogging to be on Instagram. I started blogging to write and share what was on my heart and to encourage others to live a vibrant life. So, instead of moping about Instagram, I decided to put myself back into my blog and work on improving it over the long weekend. Since I love sharing blogging advice to anyone out there thinking about blogging themselves, I decided I would share all my tips and tricks here (and hopefully they are new to you and not the typical ones!)
