Finding your audience, producing quality content, and gaining a steady stream of hits are all goals, and all will come with time. Yes, that's right - if you don't have about an hour a day of full, 100%, great productive time for your blog, you won't see results as fast as someone who does invest the time. I'm grateful to have had the quality time in the past six (OMG, six!) years to not have to spend as much time on the blog anymore while still seeing results. There's an awesome sense of accomplishment that comes with this feeling.
I’m going to start with a pretty bold statement: Instagram changed my life (for the better). Since I started properly Instagramming a few years ago (I was late the party, I know), the app has become a big creative outlet, a platform where I could grow and meet some incredible people along the way. But there is that looming pressure to grow followers and to always beat those numbers. When I started researching this and paying attention to the trends, I came across “influencers” using bots and buying followers and a sea of users opting for “follow-for-follow-BUT-once-you-follow-me-I’ll-unfollow” tactics. And really, I didn’t like what I was seeing.
The spring holidays have arrived, and we took advantage of the time off work and flew to Warsaw, Poland for five days. And let me tell you, five days is the perfect amount of time for a city like Warsaw.
This was my first time in Poland, and I wasn't sure what to expect. So, I got on Instagram and started planning. I was about two seconds into my search before I realized that we are entering a foodie heaven. And architecture tours are a *must*. And that's just what we did.
We made a few dinner reservations, we did a tour of the Old Town and another tour of communism in Warsaw (with a focus on architecture) and I would recommend the same to anyone looking to travel.
