Why I won't be turning on your Instagram post notifications

Instagram Algorithm Change | Turn on Notifications


Everyone is going batshit crazy over the new Instagram algorithm, and I'll admit, I was pretty pissed off when I first heard about it too. But I am now so bored of my feed being clogged up with 'turn on my notifications' posts, so I thought I would tell you why I will not be turning on post notifications for your Instagram...

First of all, let's go over some of the key changes to Instagram. The feed will be shifting to a more Facebook like approach, and we shouldn't be too surprised since Facebook own Instagram. I don't mean you'll be bombarded by Candy Crush invites btw, it just means posts will be shown out of chronological order in some cases and feeds will be more tailored to show you what you are likely to be interested in based on your current activity. So if you're worried about missing Harry Styles' black and white photo's or Liam Payne's selfies with Cheryl, you probably won't, because if you're into that then it's likely that you've double tapped, or stalked their profiles enough for Instagram to realise you want to see them. The idea is that we can't be on Instagram all day, so they want to show us the things we like seeing, every time we log on.

Blogging with a full time job

If you've been blogging for a while, like me, you'll have read all the blogging tips posts on what you need to do to make your blog a success. It involves, constant content creation, spending an awful lot of time promoting your posts on social media and various other outlets as well as other social media engagement to build up your community. We all know what will help us improve our blog readership, but for me, there's one thing standing in the way; my job. I'd love to spend every hour under the sun writing for and promoting my blog, but I spend too much of my time at work. So it's time for a new kind of post; advice for blogging with a full time job.

Although the end goal is to make blogging my job, I can't just quit in order to spend my time making it a success because I need the pay cheque. I have bills to pay and responsibilities, and I'm not sure my landlord will accept good traffic stats in lieu of rent payments. So, I've had to re evaluate how I blog in order to keep it going while I still work my 9-5 and here are my tips for blogging with a full time job.
