I thought of a few Instagram worthy captions but I changed my mind…I’m going to be truthful here: growing a website and online presence is such hard work. All of the articles with large claims on how fast you can grow & how successful you can become in a short amount of time are simply untrue. It is hours upon hours of creating content, posting on many different platforms & engaging with readers. It can be disheartening when platforms change their algorithms and your posts stop making it onto people’s feeds, or when despite your best efforts the post you thought was your best gets the least views
.
I started my website & Instagram in the hopes of sharing the messy moments that happen during travel, but somehow have steered away from sharing my own thoughts & feelings on this platform much of the time. Captions and pictures that will receive the most engagement win over my favorite shots or expressing my feelings at the very moment of posting
.
Today that changes! If I can share my #truthfultravel moments with you, I can also extend that honesty to my daily interactions with this community
.
I’m inspired by the interactions that have come out of joining the community that uses the hashtag #teamkaptainkenny & am absolutely overjoyed that I have recently found that Instagram has more depth than I thought possible
.
So here’s to changing the way I interact with this platform, & here is to creating a much more #truthfulinstagram Also, here is a paddleboarder enjoying the view of Mt Rainier at sunset
