I am without a doubt addicted to my phone. Even as a blogger, am I addicted more than ever. I mostly use my phone for blog related work than for personal use. Whenever you find me on my phone, nine out of ten times I check behind the scenes of my blog. That will be looking at my statistics, comments, answering them, like pictures, read other blogs, follow them and comment on their post. And this is only the usual small tasks that I do. When I’m done with the small tasks, I look online to get inspired for upcoming blogposts. I get this inspired itch mostly from other blogs that share them or online fashion and beauty magazines. I write my thoughts about it on the notes app that iPhone has.
The main habit that I have when it comes to my social media, is that I use punctuation marks with every sentence I write. I’m not a grammar freak, but it looks better. The second habit I have is that if I made a typo, I remove the whole post. This happens more on my Twitter. Yes, I know my lovely followers still understand what I’m saying, my perfectionism speaks louder at that moment. I also have a neat tic when it comes to using emojis. Blog related post are marked with the black mark emoji and a row of black emoji squares comes in front of my hashtags. On the end of the hashtags I placed the black heart emoji. This is my go to manner on my Instagram. My other go to for my feed, is that the pictures I post mostly have a white background if not, like an outfit post, I give my pictures a white glow just to have an ordered feed. In the beginning of my blogging career I just placed pictures randomly. Since I use my Instagram as a portfolio am I more concerned about the layout. I don’t want it to look too perfect, we already have too many of those feeds. So, I wanted to have a messy-white background-matched feed and I like it!
On my Facebook page, I share automatically new blogposts and some statements and that’s about it. I think this is because I don’t really have the hang of it yet. I just don’t use it as much as Instagram. Same goes for my Bloglovin’ account. I probably should interact on them more. Snapchat (SaidaSnaps) and Twitter are my most used social apps when it comes to sharing personal things. First, the Snapchat filters are so fun to use! Second, Twitter is the perfect place to share my thoughts about college, working out and another chit chat. I also like to retweet other fashion, beauty and lifestyle tweets.
Everybody has an own way on how to use social media, sometimes it scares me because of all the things you can see. The good, the bad and the ugly but, we cannot ‘’live’’ without it. I certainly am.
