I'm not afraid to admit that I used to spend two or three hours of my day (everyday) scrolling through Instagram. As much as I love the platform, I started to feel like I spent more of my day on the app than I did enjoying the simple things in life. For example, taking an evening off to relax and unwind with a glass of wine without checking my notifications...CONSTANTLY!
The reality is, when I took a week off from Instagram, I realized how much time I spent on the app, and how much I was missing out on in my daily life. That's why I decided to reel things back in and focus on what's truly important to me. A few of these things are my friends, family, enjoying the simple things in life and of course creating kick ass content for GLOBALGARCNON.net. That being said, I've been posting far more content on the blog recently because that's what I enjoy the most! I love writing about my outfits, chatting about current trends in the fashion world, and I especially love sharing beauty posts highlighting my thoughts on products I want you to know about. Ultimately, aimlessly scrolling through Instagram for countless hours isn't a priority of mine anymore and I'm totally okay with that.
Regardless of everything I just said, I'll still be very active on Instagram because let's face it, it's an essential tool if you're a full-time creative like myself. However, I'll be focusing a lot more of my time and energy on creating content and writing articles for GLOBALGARCON.net. This means you can expect 2-3 blog posts a week and sometimes even more! To make sure you're aware of when I upload new content, make sure you're following me on Facebook and Twitter or bookmark my site so you can check back throughout the week.
I would love to hear your thoughts on Instagram and all of the changes the platform has been undergoing recently. Let me know in the comment section below!
