Unfollow Me

I’m kind of kidding.

But not really.

When I first starting this journey into creating content to grow a sphere of influence online, I talked about organic interaction from people within your sphere. After starting to practice with my personal account, @thefuzziestlife, on Instagram, I have seen an ebb and flow of follows and unfollowers. Ouch.

You know, gaining twenty five followers in a couple of days felt great. But on this journey of self awareness and really taking a look at my content I wanted to have more data. I ended up downloading a program that analyzes posts and presents information around that post.

And guess what happened? People followed…and they unfollowed. And I was able to see that information and why that was happening.

Failing is giving me every opportunity to learn. Learn and grow and change and produce MORE content. I have every opportunity to succeed and fail and I don’t count those failures as the lesser of teachable moments. I count failures as one of my top experiences for my personal and professional growth.

I’m showing up, even if it’s just me on the field with my dog.

I’ll see y’all out there!

Upload. Take Down. Upload. Take Down.

I have uploaded and taken down so many posts in the last day and a half. Part of it was uncertainty and part of it was me not understanding that Instagram doesn’t support animated gifs. Crisis averted: I have since rendered my animated gif to an mp4 and will hopefully achieve my intended results shortly.

My learning curve has been somewhat steep. After being temporarily banned from tagging businesses in my posts to not realizing the capacity for certain social media outlets, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.

As I am sitting here rendering my video, I am excited for not making this same mistake in the future and being able to achieve the results I want faster in the future.

I am a little too tired to write so I will be back at it uploading and taking down and reuploading posts tomorrow. If you’re interested to check out my Instagram, here is my business name: @momentanalytics. My personal account is: @thefuzziestlife.

Until next time,

Connecting with the Interweb

Hello. That’s Caspian. He’s a FURanha and lesser known as an Alaskan Klee Kai. Yes. That thought skipping through your mind of, “hey, he kind of looks like a small Husky,” wouldn’t be far off the mark and not to dull any intellectual property blades splitting hairs: yes. Small Husky. Some of AKK owners out there MAY have a fit, but that’s okay. I know he’s an AKK and so do other AKK owners…and now you do too.

He may not look it but he’s sixteen pounds of mostly fur and licks. He can eat his weight in dog food, table scraps and has a seemingly never-ending supply of energy best used to wear out new puppies and annoy really old hound dogs.

I’ve recently started interacting with the AKK community more on Instagram. As you will read below, I have compiled a small list of what my “goals” are for this account and other business accounts I will manage:

  1. Take time to connect with people who have shared interests.
  2. Do not like pictures or follow accounts just to get followers.
  3. Produce and provide dynamic content in my fields of focus.

Glad to have you along for the ride! I’ll be posting appropriate text and limited photo content here on this WordPress account. All of my content on all of my platforms will be produced with budget friendly equipment that will not sacrifice quality of content.

My husband is currently in law school here in Texas and we have a limited budget for “extras.” That may change in the future and that may not. At this time, my photos will be shot on my iPhone 6s plus with different lenses from Moment. Currently, I have only purchased the wide angle lens photo kit on Amazon (at the time in late April 2017 it was only $99.99 even for a wide angle lens, lens cap, and Bluetooth case that works with the lens).

Until next time,
