What’s in a name? Am I a blogger or an influencer or… just Peggy?Instagram is on full speed. Everybody talks about it, most people have it. But what does that mean for the blog world? I for one have noticed that my blog visitors have decreased, while my Instagram is growing every single day. Honestly, I’m very happy that my Instagram does well, as I put a lot of effort in it. Making sure I have nice pictures, thinking about the right caption to put with every image and interacting with my followers. It takes quite a lot of time and I’ve noticed that some days I spend an average of 2.5 hours on Instagram. When you come to think of it, that’s bananas. I don’t spend the same amount of time on Instagram every day of course, I have to work, sometimes I’m not in the mood but let’s calculate.
Let’s say 1.5 hours per day. We multiply by 7 which brings us to 10.5 hours per week. I can conclude that between less active and active IG days I spend an average of 1.5 work day per week on that little app. Isn’t that crazy? I used to spend those hours on blogging, but during the holidays I always blog less as there’s less response and I am often busy with other things or travel. Plus the fact that I’m focussing more on my Instagram has caused a less active blog as well. I wonder, is blogging slowly dying? What do you think?
