@social media – Do you ever wonder why mutuals unfollow you?

On a superficial level, I do wonder about this every now and then, but I don’t obsess over it. People have reasons and sometimes that’s not worth worrying about.

But if it’s a mutual and I’ve been mutuals for a while, and they just unfollow me, it hurts temporarily. And then I remember how awesome I am and my melancholy session comes to an end πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

Testing Hashtags on Instagram – Part 3

So this post is about a week overdue, but that’s OK because I want to post about the changes I’ve seen on my Instagram account since first testing hashtags. I started this little mini social media experiment on the 20th of February, and for almost a solid month, I avoided using any hashtags in my posts. This experiment was to test what type of impact using hashtags has on posts if any at all. After a month of not using hashtags, I can see a slight difference between not using hashtags and using hashtags.

@social media – This made me proud to be a Kiwi

“New Zealand banned semi-automatic rifles less than 24 hours after the New Zealand mosque shooting. They addressed the horror guns create and decided to choose their public’s safety. America, take notes”…

@social media – It’s all about that hashtag!

Ah, fandoms. You gotta love ’em, and this post is definitely all about a fandom thing I see happening regularly. Star Wars fans will post images, GIFs or whatever and tag them as either “Anakin” or “Darth Vader”. Technically, there’d be grounds to argue that Anakin is Darth Vader, and Darth Vader is Anakin because they are the same person. But for the sake of those that like to see the separate content, Anakin fangirls (me) and Darth Vader fans everywhere (also me), there are unique points in the Star Wars Universe timeline where Darth Vader is definitely “dark side” and evil, and Anakin was obviously not walking around in a black suit of heavy armour breathing through a respirator.

QotD – Blogger to Blogger: What’s most important, followers or interaction?

I thought this would be a cool idea for the Question of the Day segment where I ask blogger to blogger questions.

As a blogger, different things motivate and drive us to write and blog. So i thought I’d ask a few questions about the blogging process to my fellow bloggers 😊

What is most important to you about blogging in general between reader interaction and followers? Is it most important to you to have less followers but regular interaction? Or is it more important for you to see that follower tally increase?

Personally, I prefer a little of both but if I had to choose I prefer to have interaction with my readers over a huge following.

I mean there is nothing wrong with wanting more followers at all and I would say that when you’re first starting out, this is probably of paramount importance. But for me, I really enjoy connecting with the people that care enough to stop by as it’s my way of saying thank you for supporting a complete stranger 😁

What about my readers? Do you find yourself choosing one over the other? Followers over interaction or vice versa? Let me know in the comments, like if you like and share if you care πŸ˜„
