Sharing on social media is something that I’m not great at. I promise. The only reason I regularly post on social media is because of my blog. I share what is going on on this website and what’s in the posts I write. However, I don’t put a lot of my personal life in each post. Why do I do that?
I don’t think that this is something I do on purpose. When I’m writing these blog posts I focus on the theme or task of each post. I’m sharing great vests for fall, or how to do something, and I leave most of my personal story out of it. It doesn’t occur to me to add much about what’s going in my life currently.
That’s one reason why I started these Maggie O On… pieces. I use these posts to dig deep into the things I really want to talk about. Whether that be pants like last week or something a bit more serious, I try to put myself into these. I bring up tidbits about my life and cute stories, but not much of what’s going on in my life right now.
Now this blog is mostly about style, so I guess that’s why I don’t put much of my life in it. However, I think it’s important to put more of my life in it. The only problem for me is this isn’t easy for me. I’m not much of a huge sharer or horn blower. I don’t toot my own horn often.
While I think this is a good trait to have because it keeps me humble or whatever, I think I need to get better about self promotion, and putting myself into everything I do. I am going to try to do that more on my blog and social media. I will also be adding more life updates in my posts so that you’ll know what’s going on in my life each week.
Do you really need to know that much about me or who I am?
This is my genuinely asking. Do I put a lot of my personal life into this blog and social media? I don’t feel like I do. That said, what would you like to see more of my blog? More me? More photos of me? Only photos and no stories? More stories, less pictures? I’m all ears and I would love to hear what parts of my life you want to see on here. And I will try and get better at social media, I promise.
