If we want to make a change about ourselves, or our lifestyle, we can do it at any time of the year. However, there’s something really clean about starting afresh at the start of a new year. Towards the end of 2018, I was beginning to feel lost. All that hasn’t gone away with the midnight bells, of course, but I’m determined to clear my head of all the bad thoughts. I want to join everybody else around the world in starting a new chapter.
This new chapter of mine includes some personal goals – healthy eating, exercise, scheduling my day and using my time more effectively. It also includes another over-branching goal: my blog. In the next few months, I’ll be approaching my 1 year mark for this blog. I’ve tried to make blogging work for me before, knowing that it would be something I’d enjoy, but it has never worked out at that specific time in my life. Part of me is glad that it didn’t, and that blogging came to me at a time where I’ve felt more mature and ready for it.
Hi everybody! My name is Cailin and I’m so excited to guest post on Beka’s blog! Beka and I switched for a post, so if you’re curious to read some awesome tips on how to increase traffic to your blog, head on over to my blog here. And you can find my links at the bottom of this page. Now to the good stuff!
It’s a tale as old as social media itself. You’re sitting and looking at your phone, thrilled to see your follower count on Insta just topped 500. Alright! But then, just seconds later, you see that you’ve suddenly dropped to 499. And you’re left thinking, who the heck followed me, just to unfollow me? What is the point here?
Well, there is, in typical human fashion, a point sometimes, but not all the time. Here, I’m going to cover exactly what the follow/unfollow game is and why people do it, why it creates a toxic social environment, and lastly, what you can do to beat it. (Which is obviously the part you came for so no worries, I won’t be bummed if you skip to that part. But if you like analysing why people do dumb things, please continue.)
