I have an Android phone with limited space for new apps, so I decided to search via Google for another way to make my #2017bestofnine photo for the hashtag by this name. These type of Instagram posts are always a bit of fun for me, so I had to play along. I searched for how to make a photo with this hashtag, which took me to the website https://2017bestnine.com/.
Once you get to this URL, type in your Instagram handle, and it will take a couple of minutes to generate the top nine most liked post from 2017. Below is mine.
Feel free to follow my feed on Instagram if you would like to keep up with what I am posting there.
So should you delete a photo if it does not get enough “likes” on Instagram. I do not think so, but I read some people actually delete pictures that do not meet a certain threshold of thumbs up. Actually, I appreciate when people like photos I post there, but surprisingly some of the photos I like the most are the ones with the least amount of responses. I am trying to post less often to Instagram because I know that people get super annoyed if they get too many status updates from your feed, but I still will post pictures I like. I am trying to post at least daily, but sometimes I go a couple of days without logging in.
Sure everyone wants more likes and followers on social media, but I actually created several of my Instagram accounts with hopes people would click through and read my blogs. So what I care about the most are those who are intrigued enough to click the link in my bio and read more. So I am sure that more likes are something we all crave, but I cannot simply go after these by posting things I am not interested in.
Interestingly, I now have a YouTube and blog that are a bit more secret side, in that I do not promote these on my main channels, and these actually have ended up being quite popular. Both are about niche topics, but the fact that people love the content on these without me having to even promote is quite interesting. I did make an Instagram for the YouTube account, but I have not even put much time into it yet.
Today I learned I was discussed on a Russian forum that talks about going barefoot, which just goes to show the power of the Internet. I had to use Google translate to figure out what they were talking about, but it is amazing that the things we post and write can have meaning to people far and wide. People who enjoy writing and blogging often post their musings, and this is definitely something I enjoy doing. Oh yes, and tweeting quite a bit as well!
