Before reviewing my statistics for September 2016. I believed there was little growth in my social media accounts. As a social media addict. I spend a lot of time on various platforms. Trying to figure out what works for my personal brand. As well as a few hobby accounts I have created.
The truth of the matter is. Everyday social media platforms are changing. Implementing a lot of different strategies can become tiresome. Tracking those strategies becomes daunting.
Which leads me to ask myself the question, why are social media stats even important?
Just like any goal. Social media growth is relevant to track. Particularly for me because I am trying to reach a certain level of engagement. I am also trying to convert my followers on social media to email list subscribers.
So as a result, I have found it useful to report my social media statistics. If for no other reason than to show my readers what growth is possible. To encourage others not to give up on their social media goals.
Spoiler alert! I am not always as happy as my Instagram account would have you to believe.
As a matter of fact for the past month and a half, I have battled with thoughts and feelings of depression. What this recent dance with depression has taught me is that you have to be willing to not be sad anymore. It is so addictive to live in a “woe is me” mindset.
To be honest, there were some days when it almost felt good to feel depressed. Weird! I know. Maybe it was because I could choose to be lazy. Not care about getting anything done. Then blame it on feeling sad and depressed!
In the past 4 years since I returned natural, I have seen a lot of pages dedicated to natural hair. Whether they were on social media alone or have a companion website to support their growth. There is no denying the current obsession with natural hair.
My natural hair story started as a journey of self-love, self-worth, and redefining beauty. Since 2012, I have learned so much about myself and to be more specific my natural hair.
The following 20 accounts I follow on Instagram because they inspire me! If I am looking for a new hairstyle to try. I want a new girl crush to add to my list because of her amazing curls. These 20 accounts never stop to amaze me!
