Thoughts of the week

Hello! It's time for thoughts of the week.
Today I only have one thought and it's about social media.

Last week I was thinking about my Instagram following. I haven't been posting much the last few weeks as I haven't been able to take photos. My followers haven't increased for ages. I decided that I need to put more effort into growing my Instagram.

A few seconds later I changed my mind. Here's the thing with social media. It's your space. You can do what you want with your space. You don't need to be anything, you don't need to have a set number of followers, certain engagement etc. Your space can be what you want it to be.

The same goes for blogging, Facebook, Pinterest etc.

Make the space your own. Don't pressure yourself to be anything other than what you want to be. If you want to hustle and grow your following, do it. If you don't want to hustle, don't. It's your space, your choice and your rules.

Years ago I used to get sent a lot of PR packages to review for my blog and after a whilst I realised that it's not my thing. I hated the pressure of having a whole pile of products to review, I hated the pressure that I got from PR companies and I hated not writing about what I wanted to write about.

Instagram is the same. I like posting about whatever I want to. I like blogging and Instagraming on my own terms, when I want and how I want to.

The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
