Am I Repeating Myself?

I made the comment twice last week that I think Instagram Is killing my blog. *sigh*. I do not like this. But I feel like I'm just repeating myself with pictures etc.   Does that bother you?  Are there readers out there who are NoT on Instagram?  Readers that still pop over to see if there's a new post? 

Of course the thing to do....the real issue here, is to get back to the blogging with interesting content and not just a "hey...look what I did last week" as the only posts!

It seems I have fallen down on this blogging business and I don't like it one bit. I want to share more than just pretty pictures again. I do!

I will make a concerted effort, for those of you that might still happen by from time to time, to actually have blog posts of some sort of interest again!  

Happy Friday!

I like your blog posts, Kim! I am probably one of the few who hasn't gotten on to the other social media (FB, Twitter, Instagram,Pinterest)band wagon. I hope you won't give up your blog!

Have a fabulous weekend!

I don't do Instagram or twitter...just facebook. Altho I'm not one to talk about blogging as I haven't blogged in over a month. Life sometimes just gets busy!

Vera said...

Hi Kim, I enjoy your blog as well and I do not get on FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). really enjoy seeing your knitting and stitching projects and, of course, Thrifty Thursdays!

I have the same thing, repeating pics from instagram. But you know, blogs and IG are still a bit different. There are words involved in blogs after all. :D I like my blog, if only to keep a record of what's going on in my life. And IG is an instant fix. lol! So they each serve their own purpose. Right?

I don't do anything but blogs so please don't stop. Not a fan of Facebook at all. Just enjoy hearing your comments and getting ideas and seeing your bargains of the week.

I ebjoy your blog, and I am not on Facebook or Instagram.

I would rather read your posts here on your blog. I have a FB but don't do Twitter or Instagram.

My blogging has slowed down too. I think IG and Blogging offer something very different in terms of volume of content. I do try to not post the same photo in both spaces - probably another reason my blogging has slowed down!

I don't do instagram. I just like to go to blogs. I enjoy yours. I like to read about the pictures and hear about the process.

I am looking forward to it!!

Stephanie said...

No Instagram here. And YES I'm always checking for new entries. It's the only way I keep up with my long lost friend.

Instagram? What's that?? (I actually had to google it -I'm still not exactly sure what it is.)

I feel the same way ~ it's easy to pop into Facebook and not as easy to blog. But not everybody is into the social media and your readers verify that. Thanks for asking ~ now I know that keeping up the blog is the way to go! I'm not a tweeter and don't do Instagram either ~ you are so in step with technology!! Have a good day!!

Terri said...

I only have a Facebook account - no twitter, instagram, etc. - I don't even have a cell phone! I love reading blogs and really need to get more regular at updating mine!!

Terry said...

Lots of my favorite blogs say "I have been busy, come see me on Instagram"
I don't do that..I just miss the blogs.
