Instagram has been good to me. It has allowed me to have some amazing opportunities here in Huntsville, connect me with new friends and share pictures of my kids with friends and family far away, but at times…I really hate it. Hypocrite? I suppose so.
In the last few days I have unfollowed some 100 accounts (now don’t go gettin any ideas! lol)–some were accounts that once inspired me but now leave me feeling less than–I even stopped following some travel accounts; wanderlust is great until it becomes all consuming! Some were accounts that no longer jive with my personal style–I have been on Insta since the beginning and my fashion sense has evolved a bit, i.e. I no longer need 9 to 5 inspiration or day to night looks–this gal’s night ends at 8 pm.
Another reason I am scaling back on those I follow is that scrolling through the feed of 800+ takes away from the precious time I have with my kiddos and husband. I already worry about the amount of tablet time for the kids and while it’s funny that Louis says “takes my picture and put it on Instagram!” it’s also terribly unfunny. At least to me.
How do you guys feel about the ole gram? Do you have a love/hate relationship with it? Do you just love it? Am I overreacting? Tell me your thoughts!
