Hey Bookish People,
I’ll admit that I’ve been slacking on my 5am wake up time…badly. It felt earned after the chaotic weeks of pitching agents and wrapping up all my projects but it turned into a bad habit. While it would be really easy to lounge in bed for another month or so while I’m waiting for responses it would be a much better use of my time to write more of my next book. So for this week’s self development I’ll be working on waking myself up and sitting down to work earlier again. I’d like to be up by 5am like I was before I decided to ruin my progress.
For Instagram I will focus on something simple that I haven’t been very good at. In addition to liking posts by people I follow, I want to also like at least 50 posts a day by people who I don’t. I will look specifically for posts through hashtags that I frequently use. In theory this will help people see my account and potentially make connections moving forward. I’m not sure what to expect outside of more followers but I think it’s a tip worth exploring.
Be sure to follow the blog to keep up to date on how these Instagram tips are working out for my author account and to see the results of this weeks experiment on Friday. If you want to see last week’s results you can read the post here. I promise to do a post soon where I break down the tips I’ve already tried and give you a breakdown of what I would focus on.
