I wouldn’t say today is my happiest Monday…. I feel like I’m starting off the week in the most terrible mood which is not fun. I lacked so much motivation over the past week. I didn’t feel like putting my face to anything, so I spent my week on blog posts that required mostly sitting behind-the-scenes at the computer.
I have a few videos on my to-do list for this week, hopefully I get at least two of them done! It’s meant to be sunny from tomorrow so I think I’ll get the camera back on again. Whenever it’s dark and gloomy, I seem to be dark and gloomy too and that’s been the case all weekend.
Yesterday I went onto my Youtube channel to find that I had finally reached 5000 subscribers. I know that’s minuscule in the grande scheme of things, but I literally only ever thought I’d get to about 40 subscribers. When it exceeded that, I was a little shocked. Youtube has become the biggest driving factor for me. When I haven’t filmed and uploaded a video, like last week, I feel like I haven’t achieved anything. When I do though, it just gives me such a boost of excitement and motivation.
I don’t know if anyone else feels this way but lately I’ve really lost the point of Instagram. I do love creating pictures for it, but at the same time I feel it has become so repetitive and kind of… pointless? If anyone features a new product, it’s usually buried so far within a flatlay that you can’t even see it. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just going through a phase. I’ve just felt like putting my energy into other things over the past week, things that I feel are more worthwhile and on platforms I feel have a little more substance to them. I’d say currently my favourite thing with Instagram is seeing people’s outfits and interior inspiration. Otherwise, I just seem to scroll through pointlessly.
Does anyone else feel the same about Instagram, or am I just in a mid social media life crisis?
