    I. Love. This.!!!! I have really reached a breaking point with IG. I feel like I’m just willingly and constantly scrolling through advertisements under the guise of it being something else. People are either posting things they bought which they too want you to buy, classes they are offering, or something they sell. Or, they are telling me what I’m doing wrong with my business, my finances, my home, or my body. It’s all so overwhelming and really not why I want to be there! Love this post!

      This πŸ’― is why I stepped away. Its all an advertisement and people trying to keep up. I don’t need that in my life. I want my life simple and enjoyable. Thank you so much for reading and I hope you will decide to maybe a take a social media break 😊

        Already doing it! Not 100% but definitely very scaled back maybe to 10% of before. I don’t even log into my personal account anymore, just my blog and business IG’s.

    Hi Rebekah its an interesting post. I promote my blog in all social media apps and I get traffic from Facebook only and hardly I get from Instagram. I know when I promote my blog on social media that I am not going to get much traffic but I just feel to share on my Facebook page which I made for my blog and also Instagram. I don’t expect much from social media but I feel that may be people who are interested should know about my new posts. Though blogging is my hobby I just take it seriously because it has become my identity.

      I think social media is a great way to promote and can be very helpful. I just find it toxic for myself so I avoid it. I love the small community I have through my blog.

        Yea I agree with you it’s not important for everyone to be on social media. Promoting blog on social media is not for everyone. They can choose to stay away from it. I appreciate your efforts Rebekah πŸ‘

    I couldn’t agree more! I never used social media and was hesitant to start a blog for that reason. But took the plunge anyways about 9 months ago and it’s progressing beautifully!!

      I am so glad you decided to start blogging. I think social media is a good tool but very toxic.

    As a new blogger, I find this very interesting and helpful. With just starting my blog, I feel like I need to post it everywhere just to make it stand out/gain traction. Great post!

    I love this. I haven’t been doing a ton of social media promotion either. I have them connected to share automatically when I post and that’s it. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I totally agree. I used to have IG for my blog but left because it was just too much of an energy drain. I currently get the majority of my blog traffic from search engines and a little bit from Pinterest(although I’m pretty slack on that.) I also have a small email list. I think SEO is the way to go!

        Ubersuggest is a great resource to use for SEO. Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduler that offers a free trial. I’d recommend checking out those. πŸ™‚
