I’m genuinely curious: what do you guys think about IG hiding likes? 🤔📊 • I’ll admit when I first read about it I panicked - even if only because it served as a harsh reminder that in the business of “creating” we don’t own this platform, or our content on it.. we’re forever at the mercy of Facebook’s decisions and figuring out how best to operate around them. • Then I stopped to imagine how my behavior/practices would change, and I realized something hugely positive. Without the pressure of visible likes, I’d probably feel more freedom to post things I wouldn’t always now - because of less fear about it being perfect and getting the MOST engagement. As much as I try to keep it real here, of course I’m affected by the constant struggle/strive to “post what does well” - who isn’t? This is a business after all. Of course I’m always thinking of the best time to post, if my captions are engaging enough or if the photo provides enough value. (I feel like in this day and age - influencers really have to provide value to stay relevant). But when it gets to a point of paralyzing you - it’s no bueno. And perhaps if some of that pressure were relieved, I’d feel a boost of creativity which would in turn serve me positively. • I also think this potential change is bigger than blogging - it could really improve state of mind around social media. I’m so glad that Instagram wasn’t around for my middle, high school and even early college days - as grounded a person I am I’m sure it would have negatively affected my mental health. I worry about kids growing up around us, the pressure of numbers and the social hierarchy it creates. • All food for thought - I’ve just typed this out as I went, no editing. Would love to hear your thoughts 🗯🗯🗯 #ootd #foodforthought #denim

Last night @margotlosangeles 🍴got a chance to wear my new jeans from @midheavendenim 👖 I always have an issue with jeans because I’m short and even though the average hight is 5’4 the fashion industry still makes jeans that are way too long and require hemming. So frustrating... so I finally found a pair of jeans I don’t have to tailor to fit my shorty self ;)
Been a little MIA...working harder than I play!
