Several weeks back, when I made my Instagram public to the blogging community, it went through a makeover. I weeded out pictures that I posted just because. For many months I was wrapped up in the "style" of posting of those I followed. Who I followed and my followers where only individuals I know in person. Since my blog is an unknown part of my life to everyone I know, I tried not to let on too much about this side. Due to this, my photo stream and who I followed didn't reflect a large part of who I am.
However I'm at the point where I'm going to share my passions and connect with fellow bloggers regardless of the people who make up a miniscule part of my life. Not worrying about, more or less, strangers from high school and college has greatly improved my Instagramming/social media experience. What I have taken from this is the importance of doing things for myself, and to not dim my inner light because of others; even when it affects something as trivial as social media. ;) Many people I "know" may have unfollowed me, but I gained plenty of followers/friends who share the same enthusiasm I have for beauty, fashion, creativity, and life!
