It’s no secret that to many creators and anyone alike, Instagram has lost its charm and, instead became a chore and a place of struggle and constant frustration #thestruggleisreal. Endlessly trying to have their content discovered and efforts noticed, and still losing followers, it became the place many people complain about.
I, too was getting super frustrated with it. I was posting daily, trying to post in Instagram stories every single day, engaging with others (liking and commenting), and I still could not get ahead. I really don’t know what one needs to do these days to have his/her work noticed. To me though, posting just for Instagram’s sake and “likes” is not the answer. Buying followers or likes is not an option as I want to grow my following organically and in an honest way. I follow accounts that inspire me, but even those I can’t see since Instagram chooses not to show me the content of those I follow, and instead, shoves ads down my throat.
But back to my decision to temporarily disable my account...
This blog was born in San Diego and I have talked about this city a lot on here as well as on my Instagram. I love the beauty of San Diego but the truth is that I have an ongoing love-hate relationship with it still. We have lived there for many years. I will not get into the details here again (you can read them in this post), but a part of me still loves this city while the other is trying hard to keep fresh in my mind the reasons why we left it in the first place.
