I’ve been feeling a certain energy lately, since around Christmas. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Normally it’s never something I’d share, however there seems to be a theme going round the community and I don’t think I’m the only one.
At first, it was around the time of the anniversary of my illness and I attributed it towards simply growing in my journey and perhaps it is that, but I sense it’s something more too.
I’m seeing a lot of posts of “fuck the algorithm, or I’m just going to post what I want and when I want, not caring about the amount of likes, caring too much about the amount of likes, getting upset because someone copied their style without crediting them although can you conclusively say that you’re the first person to ever do that?
And then what happens is the community starts becoming bitter, “why did he/she get that PR? Why don’t I ever get PR?” In reality we should just be happy our friends got recognised by the brand to receive the PR, that’s how I see it and if PR is important to you, start making strides to work for it, if it’s something you want, work to make it happen.
But the way I see it, 2019 is the year of no fucks and what I mean by that is don’t get caught up in the Instagram bureaucracy nonsense. If you take a picture you love and think rocks, post it. Have something to say and contribute, say it. Don’t get caught up with numbers and likes and engagement, it really isn’t the be all and end all of what constitutes a good and interesting feed. A lot of people are suffering and if it’s eating them up inside, questioning why their engagement has gone down, and the result is any future content isn’t coming across as authentic, it’s simply trying too hard.
Go back to the beginning when you first started your account and work with that same drive and passion, only with the knowledge you have now. See how things will change for you.
Have the confidence in yourself that what you’re doing is A+. You have followers for a reason, so keep going.
One thing I will add, if you want likes, you gotta give likes. You can’t just scroll past people and not give likes and expect likes in return. Continued in notes...
So good to see you Friday 👋🏻
