That white Instagram post



Today I shared a white square on my Instagram and the response has been pretty impressive, so thought i'd share my thoughts behind it here too! I know it might seem a little odd to only post a white square on my Instagram, but in some ways it represents closing the door on 2018 and looking forward to 2019. Putting a gap between my old content and looking forward to the new. I haven't posted since the 4th November and I can't believe that we're now almost in March. It's crazy how much time has gone by since I even thought about posting anything on here. I guess that says quite a lot about my attitude shift when it comes to Instagram for promoting my blog - especially as I've turned the notifications off on here too. 

On my personal account I have unfollowed all celebs, influencers and basically anyone I don't know (minus the pet accounts which are just too damn cute to delete) and it's been so refreshing. I'm posting more regularly and not caring as much about how I or my feed looks, it's just way more natural. On this account everything is more curated and planned out, and it's bloody exhausting. I'm sure i'm not the only one to think this! 

After a break away from it all for a few months, I've come back and have been surprised at how much more I like scrolling through the more heavily produced content from other people I follow. I don't necessarily relate to what they are posting, but it's not causing me any harm to view it. I guess the lesson I've learnt is that if I want to share images on here, then it needs to be more aligned with what is true to my life, and not just posting things because I think that is what is expected of someone who is interested in fashion/has a blog! I have so much going on and could definitely get this account back up and running, but I need to remember that social media should be fun and not stressful.

If you want to give my account a follow to see what next steps i'll take then head on over to @ClashingTime_
