A weekly recap post linking up with:
Thank you to Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer | Deb @ Readerbuzz | Kathryn @ The Book Date for hosting! Please visit them to join the fun. What have you been up to this week?
Happy Mid-Year! We’ve had a lot of rain here, which I love, and a bit cooler weather (70s/80s). Not bad for this time of year. 🌧️
This past week my project was to consolidate all of the blogs I follow into Feedly. Before, I was following all over the place — Blogger Reader, WordPress Reader, and Bloglovin. Feedly seems easy to use, plus I like their app. Emojis look a little wonky in their post previews, but I can live with that. I’ll keep the other readers as backup though. How do you keep track of blogs you follow?
A bit of news from Instagram on Wednesday: They said the platform is “no longer a photo-sharing app,” and part of their future plan is to focus on videos due to competition from TikTok, YouTube, etc. You can view the announcement here: Changes are coming to video on Instagram.
As a Bookstagrammer too, I’m leery of this news. I don’t know what it means for us. Will the algorithm hide regular photo posts to push videos, even from accounts you don’t follow? I mean, I love TikTok, it’s fun, but I love Instagram because it’s not TikTok. I guess we wait and see. 🤔
