This was so helpful to me! I am a Luddite, technologically-challenged, an introvert, and a horrible photographer — so, yeah, having a blog about fashion, music, and travel (plus contributing personal tales on P.S. I Love You) totally correlates to my (clearly limited) skill-set.
Anyhoo, I have felt pressure to cast my social media net wider with Instagram being the obvious addition.
But given my aforementioned weaknesses I have avoided it entirely, feeling like I am committing a serious blog faux pas.
I have decided that your and Kunal Shandilya’s experiences/stories (and y’all are way more accomplished at “this” than I am so I deem you qualified to give advice) might be just the thing to let me off the hook. I’m going to try to relax and breathe a bit about putting that pressure on myself.
I’m smiling over here: I’m not particularly motivational anyway. My style is probably more “direct shooter”, though I always say: I was raised in the South, so I’m not some Jersey broad!
The Medium community has been supportive, which has been a pleasant surprise. So glad you have landed in this happy spot!
