I feel the same way about algorithms as I do about bitcoin - no comment. I don't know much about it and what I do know I don't really understand.
The talk about Instagram town is that small businesses are disappearing into internet darkness. However, the experts are saying that one can "reset" your Instagram so that Mr Algorithm can notice your activity and from there, boost your profile for business. Of the many guru propositions, they suggest posting reels for 7 and/or 30 consecutive days. So I took on the challenge.
Sometimes a reel can take a matter of minutes to make from start to finish, other times a 6 second clip can take a whole day.
I feel 🤢 at the thought of thinking of something to post which led me to writing about my feelings and starting this post 😄
Emotionally exhausted, my brain's factory of ideas is running low.
[day 8 - 14: radio silence on commentary]
Yay! The halfway mark, finally!
Feeling different, kind of empowered 💪 Sure I'm tired and yes, thinking of new reel ideas while juggling other things is tricky, but I'm levelling up on multitasking, #feelinggood
While I still feel motivated, it also feels like a slight pain in the ass to be honest 😄 Maybe it was a bad idea to take the challenge on mid Christmas Shop prepping - don't worry, not quitting - but seriously, a little break would be nice. Even just a day.
Time management is essential during this challenge. Days need to be planned and thought out the day before. Even though it's demanding on my schedule, it has helped me see Ingrini in a new perspective and I'm super excited to move forward.
