  1. I joined instagram not that long ago. I really joined just because my blog is heading more toward arts, journals, and lettering, and there are so many great lettering artists there! I follow quite a few accounts, but I really don’t post much, to be honest! Hoping to become more active at my blog again, once our home issues are settled!

  2. After attending last year’s Design Bloggers Conference, I learned a lot about FB and IG and those pesky algorithms-thingies. I did just learn about #dailydecortags, if you’d don’t already know. One of the founders of that group puts up a photo with hashtags she is using that day and then people can play along. I add ones I know like #teatime, for example. It’s helping my feeble IG presence to be seen a little more, but I know what you mean. It takes a lot of work writing our posts, then linking to parties, and posting on IG and FB, reading emails {I get hundreds… hard to go through them all, so now I’m unsubscribing from things}.

    I’m hardly getting my posts photographed and written, so some weeks I’m not out there much since I’m also trying to be more present in my Bible study group, IOOF and Rebekah’s and finding a church. 🙂 We are working our way through Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow, since I see your latest post, Katherine! <3 BOY is it a tough study… Hard! Anyway, gotta run.

    Have a great rest of the week,
    Barb 🙂

    1. Hi Barbara,thank you so much for sharing with me. I can certainly commiserate with you on the emails, oh my goodness if I miss even one day they are like bunnies and coat hangers multiplying, LOL. I subscribe to a lot of blogs too and I enjoy visiting them all. I have a hard time unsubscribing through, because many of them are follow me. Fingers crossed you won’t be unsubscribing from Katherines Corner ( wink) Hugs!

  3. Nope I don’t use Instagram, I’ve used Pinterest but it irritates me & I don’t like Facebook. It’s so easy to fritter away your time on these sites. I find Blogging much more interesting & informative.

    1. I know it’s important to participate in social networking especially with my online shops. I’m sticking to the no instagram thing and concentrating instead on tidying up my pinterest boards and sharing more on facebook. Hugs!

  4. Katherine I have to say I am with you when it comes to instagram I just don’t get it. I don’t totally get Twitter and I have never seen how Pinterest works with a blog. May I am just an old dog who can’t learn new tricks. lol

    1. Victoria, first not an old dog…second. Pinterest is fun. But it is so easy to get lost in it. have to set a kitchen timer and when the 30 minutes is up I’m out of there!, LOL
      After reviewing things I am staying with the Pinterest, facebook and maybe twitter. Hugs!

  5. I totally agree with you Katherine. In fact, I beat you in breaking up with IG some while ago. Without a VA, I don’t see how I can keep up with it & I have no desire to sit on social media all day long. I don’t take selfies either & don’t even have my phone half the time. I just let it go. Doing the big P & FB is all I can do. If I miss something, too bad.

  6. I so tried the Insta thing and, like you, got so frustrated. I believe it is close to impossible to do well on all social media platforms – pick the one or ones that really resonate for you or they won’t resonate with your followers! Facebook and Twitter are now my go-tos, with some G+ and Pinterest.

    1. thank you for your support. I do love Pinterest, my boards are a mess right now ( wink) , I’m on G+ too , and I’m working hard to get seen on facebook. I know just toooo many! Hugs

  7. I like instagram way better then anything…so many random things you can follow. With fb I think you’ll be spending more money as a blogger to get people to even “see” you. Twitter has the annoying limits on how many I can follow and with everyone wanting me to follow THEM but no one actually FOLLOWING me back, see the problem there…. fair is fair eh? PINTEREST is evil…oh just follow me on pinterest….3 hrs later and weird thing I’ve pinned that I’ll never do and OMG ITS BED TIME lol..anyways social media should be fun and not stressful…have a good weekend, hope you aren’t snow bound

    1. Aww thank you, pinterest ius an official time sucker, LOL. My boards need some serious attention I love hanging out there. But I don’t feel like it’s “social” just fun. I’m hoping that I’ll be found on facebook. I really enjoy my savvy shopper group. Hugs

  8. I have had many similar feelings with Instagram. In the early days, Instagram was great. But since they have taken a page from Facebook with their algorithms and more, I am not loving it either. My photography isn’t the issue I feel, but the actual time and energy needed to keep up. So, I have actually put more time into Pinterest this past year and loving it over there. Plus, I am working with my SEO, too. So between the two I have seen more success on that front. Which to me was well worth the time I put into it. Happy Saturday and hope it all works out for you now, too Katie xoxo <3

  9. I checked out the Snoring Dog site and would be happy to use the gift card on any of the art prints. What a great giveaway, Thanks Katie!

  10. I feel the same way! I’m ready to give up on Instagram, too. I can’t keep up. I have to simplify my life or I’m going to drown in all these sites and pics and postings. Don’t feel bad. We all think we’re going to miss out on something by dropping a social media channel and I wonder if that’s true.

    1. Oh sweet Jean, I am right there with you. I really don’t have many followers on instagram, so I doubt I’ll be missed ( wink) I won’t close the account but it won’t be my “go to” for social media. xo xo

Love each other as God loves you xo
