Does size really matter?

I wonder how many curious men clicked onto this link thinking it was gonna be something else…. 😏😂

Evil genius I know.

How much does it matter though?

The size of your house, the size of your car, the size of your ass?

My main query on this front is the size of your following.

Anyone who doesn’t know me; I have been blogging for over three years now. This year I grew some balls and started a YouTube channel and everyday i am forever grateful to that one more follower on my instagram or one more subscription to one of my channels.

It has took me time dedication and perseverance to get where I am today and as long as I know I’m giving my all in to my content and photos the fact my “following” isn’t humongous doesn’t bother me as much as it maybe used too.

On the other hand however is it really annoying when you maybe don’t get a break on something you know you’d be amazing at because you don’t have a “great following?” Of course it is. Does it make you wanna throw a hissy fit and give up? (Maybe) haha nah of course not! It just makes you work harder.

My main view on this front is that of course a bigger number looks better on paper and indeed maybe for the job company or brand that’s using them (majority of people who have got that following deserve it and well props to themit’s bloody harder than it looks) but should the person with a smaller following be over looked on a project that suits them to the ground?

Are you not gonna read a post if the person who wrote it doesn’t have thousands of followers? Are you not gonna like their photos because they don’t all have a flower wall backdrop and a summers day view in tow?

For me sometimes the personality of one may speak masses compared to the other who has thousands of followers.

Hard work and dedication takes time so maybe we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover after all and dig a little deeper sometimes🤷🏻‍♀️.

So what do you think, does size really matter?

Speak soon,

Lotsa love

Is imitation a form of flattery?

When growing up there was always the well known thing of being a “copycat”.

In primary school it was the simplest little things to having the same pencil case as daisy at the same table in your class…

To secondary school were everyone was trying to avoid having the same “Morgan” or “Kooki” bag.

Thankfully everyone grows up and life moves on – but in the world of social media and Instagram has this childlike phase made an ugly reappearance?

As we all know bloggers and social media influencers have a pressure to be on top of their “insta game” with fresh outfits and edgy af pics. We all like a “I’m not looking” pose (see above) 💁🏻‍♀️ and if there was a photogenic wall to be standing in front of you’ll find us there.

And let’s face it – we all love to see this and for me I love to take them!

But how far does this go? Do people just look at everyone’s photos as just that – a photo? Or do they see the thought and background process behind it? If yes then is it a pisstake when you see someone ripping off someone else’s creative content on to their own feed? Or is it a thing of the “now”?

What can we really do?

I’m asking these all in rhetorical questions as I genuinely don’t know the answer.

I have came across more and more accounts over the last few months that when I look at them they just scream another bloggers name to me.

A little bit of me feels like sending them to said blogger and being like “ hun does this not piss you off” in hindsight though what can they do? Is it a compliment? Or is it a rip off on someone else’s work?

Personally, I would for sure be annoyed. However if someone bought a dress i popped up over on the gram and gave me credits for the inspo I would be all sorts of delighted. Does the difference then lie with giving the person the credit for the idea…

We all seek a majority of our day to day inspiration and ideas from social media; so can we really be annoyed if someone takes an idea off our accounts? Does this copycat notion run true to you or is imitation a form of flattery?

Speak soon,

Lotsa love
