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.
Feel free to follow Loves. Comment below your habits, would love to read them!

totally relatable I am also constantly on my phone for work and my blog. It drives people around me nuts
Yes, even when I put it away I turn around and look at the screen to see if I have a notification. My little brother takes sometimes my phone away from me, especially during dinner. Which I totally understand! Is there a anonymous phone addict meeting…..? Xx
Reblogged this on LIFE BURNS BRIGHT.
I think your post is great, and since I make my living in social media marketing, I want to tell you are doing the right thing with your instagramx.
Thank you, so nice to hear! Xx
I dont think I spend more than 2 minutes away from my phone during the day. It is my partner in crime. Always with me! Sense I started blogging I use Twitter a lot! It is my new thing!
I can relate! Maybe there should be a AA meeting for phone addicts. Yes, Twitter is a great way to promote your blog and share your thoughts! I like twitter too. Xx
I completely agree! I’m always checking analytics to the blog and seeing any new comments that people are posting! I’m getting better at checking Twitter and Instagram, even though I still sometimes forget! 🙂
Once you get the hang of it, you’ll not forget! I had the same thing, namely at the beginning. Now I’m Instagram obsessed! Xx
Can relate so much to this! My full time job is on social media so I can’t escape haha. I definitely use explanation marks too much too! xx
So great to hear that I’m not alone in this! Hihi. Xx
Loved your social media habits. Like you I delete posts with an error unless my readers have already commented or liked. My habits are to always add a hashtag and I love adding gifs. I once found myself using gifs in my posts and replies.
Thank you sweetie. Yes! I send gifs mostly to family and friends, those mini videos express the right feeling at the moment. Love them! Xx
I agree! Like you I am constantly on my phone, either checking emails or editing the photos or may be some other blog related work.
Joy the club! Hahah its getting crowded in here, more the better! Xx
