A few days back, a friend blogger was telling me that her recent post got a pathetic number of likes and she deleted that photo just because of this reason. That made me wonder, are we really posting our photos here only for LIKES?
I DON’T post anything just for the sake of likes. But sadly, when you are a blogger or an influencer, these LIKES play a huge role in your blogging. Brands don’t see if your followers are authentic or not.. brands don’t see if your likes are real or bought.. All they care is that NUMBER on your followers and LIKES on your sponsored posts. Nobody admits that, but this is the reality of Instagram now.
I still love Instagram, I do! But I don’t let LIKES or instagram COMMENTS consume me. I don’t feel bad when a post doesn’t reach bigger audience just because it was not glamorous or not attractive enough. When I post something, it comes directly from my heart. Even if a single person smiles after reading my posts or feel better, that is the best thing. And that is the reason why I don’t feel bad when posts don’t get many likes but yes I feel sad sometimes too.
I would be lying if I say INSTAGRAM LIKES don’t matter. They matter a lot, especially in the eyes of brands and while working as a blogger and we all know it.

So guys, next time you scroll down your instagram feed and if any post makes you smile, like it, comment on it.. it may take a few seconds but it means a lot for the blogger posting that image after writing down a caption. It is not an obligation and not compulsory for anybody to like/ comment but do it out of your kindness.
So like these posts from instagram bloggers you follow if their words made you smile.
