InstaMonth for September 2016

I love fall, I really really love fall. But the limited daytime hours and sunlight drives me crazy. It wreaks havoc with photos and my schedule. Autumn pros outweigh the cons for me, but that's a pretty big con for us bloggers. Right?! C'est la vie! (Also, totally can't say that without getting the B*Witched song in my head. Not a bad thing.)

Here are some pictures from my Instagram last month. I've been focusing on growing my account and I feel like it goes a lot slower for me than a lot of other bloggers. I don't want to compare myself, because I hate that slippery path. It can just be aggravating when you put so much of your time into something and you don't make the progress you're striving for.

My numbers constantly go up and down, because of people who enjoy the follow, wait for a follow back, and unfollow right after game. I hate this trend. With a passion. I look at the numbers of those that follow me and I can tell right away if they do it. And when I do follow back and they unfollow right after, I utilize the ol' block button. Why? Because they are almost always repeat offenders and I am so over it. I want legit followers and I want to be a legit follower that likes and comments, not just a number. Yes, numbers are important but not getting them like that. That method just really turns me off. Hopefully I'm not the only one who thinks that! To each their own, I just personally don't like or appreciate it. (P.S.- Please don't think I am all about the numbers. I just don't like this new method being used to gain followers. I am appreciative of each and every person that deems my account worthy of a follow. And I love following you back and commenting and liking!)
