“How did it feel when you deleted all of your photos?”
I’ve received so many messages with this exact question after I did my IG makeover…… And every time I’ve read it, I’ve had to giggle just a little bit.(lol in a sweet way) You guys couldn’t honestly believe that I deleted years worth of photos, content & memories!!!!!
So to anwer that question for everyone… I don’t know how it feels, because I didn’t delete any of my photos…… I archived every single one them!
“Archive: a collection of historical documents or records providing information about a place, institution, or group of people.”
“What is the purpose of archiving? : data archiving is the process of moving data that is no longer actively used to a separate storage device for long-term retention.” — google
So in other words, I moved all of my old photos to a place on IG, where I’m able to see them any time I want. And it was just that simple….
I decided to revamp my Instgram profile because I realized that instagram also plays the role of a resume. Especially with all of the goals & plans I have for myself as a blogger, influencer, and content creator….. the look, the style, or simply put… the aesthetic of my page needed a major clean up!
This is what my IG looked like before…
I literally felt like I had to post everything, there was no color scheme or theme…. I just posted what I thought was good content. And I’m not knocking myself saying that it wasn’t, but now I know the importance of strategically posting on my profile…. and using my IG stories like crazy!
…. if you don’t already follow me on IG, here’s what the aesthetic of my profile looks like now…
