Good morning guys! Happy New Year! This isn’t going to be some fancy blog post with a fancy header like my usual posts.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life was happening. My school semesters have been crazy hectic. I miss blogging and with all the changes happening on Instagram, I think I want to get back into it. I’ve also been slacking off on my YouTube, which I also need to get back into.
I’ve already made a list of goals for 2017 and filmed a few videos for my channel already. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I hit my milestone of 50k followers. It’s amazing but one thing is so discouraging. The new IG algorithm… oh boy, I’ve never heard a single person say they like it. My photos don’t get as much engagement and I don’t receive the likes I used to get. Before the algorithm, I average 1k-3k likes on my photos and now I am barely hitting 400… last night I posted a picture and it only got 178 likes within 2 hours.
So I’m trying to find different ways to grow my channel. 2016 was a good year, I got to be apart of the new NYX campaign for their Total Control Drop Foundation, super exciting stuff!
Just a mini rant post. How do you all feel about the new IG algorithm? Are you seeing more engagement or has it dropped?
If you’re not following me on Instagram (monair), I would totally love it if you did!
