Life Update

Oh boy, it has been too long since I last blogged, things have honestly been super crazy for me in the past two months. After a million and one interviews I found a job that was the perfect fit for me and have been adjusting to working and did a little bit of traveling. I feel so bad to say it, but I really just got out of my old groove with blogging and posting to social media on a regular basis. 

I do have to say the one thing that really frustrated me and I ended up just not posting anywhere was all of the problems with Instagram. If you are a normal person posting with real friends following you I am sure you have noticed no difference. For bloggers with business accounts like myself, I have noticed a great decline in followers and likes no matter what time of day I posted or how many hashtags I used. 
The frustration was incredibly real, I went from always growing when posting to actually having all my numbers decline. Instagram is by far my favorite platform for social media and I needed to step away from everything for a little while. I have now acclimated to my new job, I am in a really good routine, I haven't gotten the flu (knock on wood) and am feeling better about putting myself back out there.

It is crazy how one thing can really turn you off to everything but I had to remember that my blog is MY blog. No one else can touch it and the success of it is in my hands. I do need social media to support my blog at times and I have come to terms with now posting and not having great stats. I just need to step back, forget about the numbers and do what I love doing. 

Besides all of that super fun stuff, I am back to traveling again very soon to head to Expo West, my favorite trade show of all! I will be documenting every step of the way. Yes, I am talking Instagram, Instagram Stories & Twitter
Be sure to follow me on both 
where I will be taking you on my journey to Anaheim. 

I already am planning some really exciting things with brands and cannot wait to share it with all of you. 

Thank you all for sticking with me as all of this craziness has been going down. I know my followers are all extremely loyal and I appreciate each and every one of you!
