Social media, you either love it or you hate it. Or you hate it and have to use it for work, or for promoting your brand, vision, cause, etc. There is Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, and the king Instagram. And they are in all honesty great for all of that, promoting your brand, your blog. However, there is another side to this double edged sword. The numbers game. And this game is very much like the Game of Thrones only it is the game of engagement, followers, likes, clicks. There is a problem there, and especially where Instagram is concerned, a shitty algorithm .

Ever since Instagram has changed from the beloved chronological order of posts, people have been yelling from the rooftops that their engagement is awful, there is no seeing posts that they like to see from fave accounts. Your posts are only visible to a small 5% of  the pie until you reach a magical threshold where it is then released to the void of instagram glory. The big accounts are feeling, the smaller accounts(like mine) are feeling it more.  The deal is, Instagram whether they want to admit it or not want you the smaller accounts to pay for your posts to be boosted to be seen. Whereas in the old days, you could post and get over 300 likes in an hour, comments from other users, and feel like your followers are on the rise. Now we are in the Instagram dulldrums. Where you stay stagnant in followers, and bloggers and instamodels are forced to get into groups with other like minded folk to get their accounts seen and beat the algorithm and Instagram at their own game. Instagram caught on to the groups in the DMs on Instagram, and then everyone went to chat apps to give each other “help”.

Other apps have come and try to beat Instagram, like VERO, but that app was not successful. It had potential, but alas was not the way. (I still use in hopes)So what do we do? I mean I have to be honest, it is really sad that some brands are pulling from Instagram. Saying the algorithm is keeping it from wanting to be there, LUSH for example, pulled their instagram for that reason. ALGORITHM! I think that even if someone with an account as large as say Beyonce or Kim Kardashian even stopped from using Instagram, they still wouldn’t go back. They think this new way is better. It isn’t and no matter how many luncheons they give the bigger influencers, or how many times they say it isn’t what you think. The bottom line is this, GREED.

And that is why, if you have a blog, you need to get back into investing your time there. Especially if you own the URL and self host. It is yours, and it is time to get back to it and grow that pumpkin into the biggest pumpkin ever!!!

So, now I am going to put most if not all my eggs into my blog basket! I have to and you should too.

Instagram and Facebook are just going to keep stealing those eggs.
