I started my Instagram in 2015. It was a way for me to chronicle my journey with Pavi and through the years, it’s remained that way. I treat my IG as a journal. Yes, I post the highlights, but I also post the lows. It’s important for me to have the whole story when I look back.
Somewhere along the way, I got caught up the social media machine. The hustle of getting likes and followers. I posted a video of a not so great test and lost 60 followers that day. I wondered if maybe I shouldn’t post things like that anymore? But I want that test documented. I want to be able look back and see how far we have come.
The irony is that I don’t have a product or blog to promote. As an amateur, I’m limited in what sponsorship I can accept (which is BS by the way). So why am I doing it?!
The answer is, I’m not anymore. I’m only doing what I love. That is posting photos of my horses, making friendships within our equestrian community and most of all, using it as my riding journal.
I have so much respect for those out there killing the Instagram game. It takes time and effort. My account has stopped growing now but that’s ok. I needed to redirect that time and effort into my children and my real life. It was just getting to be too much.
I’m excited about the future with my ponies and look forward to continuing sharing my adventures. I hope you will join me and if not, that’s ok too.
Just curious, who here has followed me since the Pavi days?! - 2 hours ago
