I recently pared down the list of people I follow on Instagram from hundreds to under 75. My goal was to engage more with the people I follow — my feed was filled with content that was less than engaging.
I favor friends, family, and beautiful things
For some, Instagram is a way of sharing pictures of family and friends. For others, Instagram is an endless opportunity to take and post selfies or take photos of breakfast, lunch, and dinner… every day. I don’t follow frequent face or food photographers. I do follow friends, family, and accounts that post beautiful stuff.
I want to be moved by the pictures I see. I want to smile, laugh, be inspired, or challenged to think about something in a new way.
