Why Instagram Isn’t My Main Focus In 2019 + What I’m Focusing On Instead

I spent a lot of 2018 worrying about my ever yo-yo-ing Instagram numbers. Can you believe at one point I was so close to cracking 3,000 and now I am hovering at 2,700? It sucks. Not only does it suck, it often makes me feel inadequate like I don’t have an Instagram followers life, but to be honest I don’t, and that’s just something I have to come to terms with.

The thing is, though, my Instagram numbers don’t reflect my blogging skills at all. I am by no means bringing in hordes of traffic, but I am also bringing in more traffic now than I did when I was closing in on 3,000 page views. Everything is increasing over here, except Instagram, and I find myself so unnecessarily fixated on that.

Why Instagram Isn't My Main Focus In 2019 + What I'm Focusing On Instead | Instagram has been a point of contention for me for a while. I finally decided that it doesn't bring me as much joy when I focus on the numbers. I am not focusing on Instagram this year and here are a few things I'm focusing on instead. #BloggingGoals #BloggingAdvice #Instagram

My Foolproof Strategy For Taking Calls With Clients As An Introvert

Building a relationship with a potential client can be scary. One of the hardest parts? Going from a conversation to having money in your PayPal account! Booking a client can be very stressful, and I don’t want you to stress anymore. Today I am going to share my foolproof strategy for taking calls with clients.

A client call is strategic. Yes, calls give me major anxiety, but they help me close freelance writing deals. For many clients, they feel better about your services once you talk on the phone with them.

A phone call gives you the chance to hear their needs, offer a bit of your expertise, and get the ball rolling on projects. Overall, it’s one of the best things you can do for your business.

Today, I am breaking down my strategy so all my fellow introverted freelancers can get on the phone with ease.

Curvy Girl Diaries: Trying The Famous Leith Dress

You guys I did it.

I finally hit purchase on the Leith dress after hearing about how it was perfect for all body types, on size small/medium bloggers.

Now, this is no shade to any size small/medium blogger. I follow a TON of bloggers that fall in that range, and I love checking out their pieces. I know that I usually can’t fit into a lot of their pieces, though. And I wouldn’t expect them to fit in many of the pieces I share on this blog either.
