I used to love reading blogs.
I still do occasionally but due the the overwhelming pull of social media I don’t read as much anymore.
I am well over all the censorship, algorithms and noise of social.
Don’t get me wrong I still love it and use Instagram the most. Still love me some Pinterest but is that really social media (shrug), more like a virtual magazine imo.
Anyway with all the changes of platforms. I am going be more present posting on my blog – yes this one you are reading right now.
I just discovered Bloglovin yesterday – thanks to an email from Leonie Dawson. Anyway its an easy app to follow blogs and it displays the latest post of those you follow in a feed. Very handy for weaning off social.
🌻 Write more blogs
🌻 Use this platform which I own and have all the rights over. You don’t own your social media platforms so if they decide any changes or even to shut down their sites all your efforts are gone.
🌻 Do some things here which are more ‘social media’ style posts
🌻 Have fun and remember why I started this site even. Its slightly evolved but I love to create content, play around with design and share things I love.
🌻 Also read other peoples blogs more often. If you have a blog leave it in the comments I would love to check it out.
Heres to being creative, reading more long form content & creating in space that is you own.
UPDATE – I just found out that I can also create a ‘stories’ post on WordPress too. How good so while Im still on Insta Ill upload the same stories and then later I might just be doing everything here who knows
