3 thoughts about being blocked on Instagram #writingcommunity #amwriting

About two weeks ago my Instagram account was “restricted”. The scary part was that I don’t exactly know what I did. My pleas for an explanation for my restriction fell on deaf ears.

I learned a few things.

1. I need to strengthen the content on my website.

I’m consistently inconsistent.

The name of the game is content, content, content.

And I need to produce more and I plan to.

2. Social media is cool but we all need our own hub.

I don’t own my social media platforms and I can be shut out of them at any time. Don’t get me wrong I sincerely appreciate them but I have to build up my platform outside of social media too. They work hand and hand.

3. I need to beef up my email list.

I’m an advocate for utilizing your network. Full transparency:

I severely underutilize mine.

That’s why I’m big on having an email list.

When it comes to bringing awareness to your projects you need all the help you can get.

Moral of the story is build up your platform and utilize it.
