What My New IG Account Has Taught Me (And Behind-The-Scenes)

instagram social media May 13, 2024


Hello, friend! Welcome back to the Purpose and Pixie Dust podcast. Today, I want to share with you the exciting journey I embarked on when I decided to create a new Instagram account. Previously, my account under my name, Lindsay Dollinger, boasted over 11,000 followers. However, circumstances led to that account being deactivated, prompting me to start fresh.

Starting over on Instagram was a breath of fresh air for me. It allowed me to reflect on my social media strategy and reimagine how I wanted to engage with my audience. One of the aspects I cherished about the new account was the opportunity to curate my followers, ensuring that I connected with individuals who genuinely resonated with my content.

Embracing a smaller audience on my new Instagram account proved to be invigorating. It enabled me to focus on quality interactions and meaningful connections rather than sheer numbers. I found joy in engaging with like-minded individuals and fostering a sense of community on this platform.

Moreover, the newer features and fonts that came with a fresh account rejuvenated my creativity. It brought a wave of inspiration and motivation to create engaging content for my followers. As I navigated this reinvigorated Instagram journey, I discovered the power of intentional connections and authentic engagement.

 Nurturing Your Social Media Presence 

Reflecting on my experience, I encourage you to evaluate your current social media strategy. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed or disconnected on your existing account, consider the possibility of starting afresh. Whether it's a name change, audience cleanup, or exploring a new platform, allow yourself the freedom to realign your social media presence with your goals and values.

Remember, social media should be a tool for meaningful connections and community building. Prioritize platforms that resonate with you and enable you to authentically engage with your audience. By nurturing genuine connections and fostering a supportive community, you can cultivate a thriving online presence that aligns with your values and objectives.

As you navigate your social media journey, stay open to experimentation and adaptation. Embrace new opportunities for growth and connection, and be willing to explore fresh avenues that resonate with your authentic self. Remember, your social media presence is a reflection of your unique voice and vision – nurture it with care and intention.
