So today I made a decision that I’ve been chewing over for a few weeks: I’m going to start popping the odd photo on Instagram again.
Here’s what brought me to this decision and how I’m going to try to make it work for easily addicted ol’ me…
I plan to use my Instagram account as a shopfront for my little kits… any socialising and real life stuff will very much still be happening over here.
I won’t be following anyone and I won’t be replying to comments – party pooper, I know! – but I’m far more comfortable chatting here.
And I’ll largely be trying to ignore any numbers, remembering that that’s not where I find my sense of self-worth.
But I’m so enjoying this little kit design project of mine – not to mention managing to pop a nice cheque to World Vision each month – so it seems a shame to keep it quiet.
So I’m pulling back the curtains of my feed over there and hoovering up the resulting dust…
Here’s to a heartfelt attempt at non-addictive use of social media! Wish me luck.
