It is funny how you can so easily fall in and out of love isn’t it? One day you’re completely and utterly besotted then the next you could happily shut up shop and walk away. I have been feeling this quite a lot lately about social media. I go through phases where it is the absolute bees knees then others when I could happily delete everything and sail off into the sunset.
The last twelve months have seen me battle even more frequently. My Twitter account is around 8 years old and has amassed numerous friends from way way before my blogging days. When I was pregnant with the girls, it was a place of comfort, support and encouragement. Since putting more effort into my blog, it’s lost that personal touch, as has most of my social medias which makes me quite sad. A few days again, I was browsing through my original Instagram account that has around 100 followers but every one I know. Social media is just that – to be social but can you really be all that social across numerous platforms?
I feel like you can continually trying to keep all the plates spinning but it’s nigh on impossible. I cannot divide my energy and effort across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Instagram stories, YouTube, Pinterest all whilst keeping my blog up to date. It’s impossible. Sadly, whilst you focus on one, the others slip away. So I have made a decision to stop worrying. To just do what I want – as and when. I am absolutely LOVING Pinterest at the moment. With a Disney holiday on the horizon, it has become my go to place to glean as much information as possible. With my hours
wasted spent on my Pinterest, I know that my blog Facebook page has been neglected but you know what? That’s Ok. It’s Ok not to do EVERYTHING. Ultimately, I have three children and they above all are the most important. Instead of fretting and staying up until silly o’clock, I’ll switch off and relax.
I feel so annoyed that I have let myself feel so pressurised by social media. It was always the one thing I never let get on top of me, so I am adamant I am not going to start now!
