Tuesday Turn About Link Party 59

Welcome to Tuesday Turn About Link Party 59. We are so happy you’re here.

Can you believe this is the last Tuesday in July? Thank you for continuing to visit and share at Tuesday Turn About Link Party 59 every week. We really appreciate you coming to the party. 

Is summer 2/3 over? For many whose kids are going back to school ~ one way or another ~ summer is practically over. I liked it when school didn’t start until after Labor Day.

On Pinterest, searches for all things Christmas has spiked dramatically. I never thought I would be posting about Christmas decorations in July, but last week I did ~ along with 13 of my blogger friends.

Not to be left behind or leave anyone out, I’m planning on mixing in Christmas~themed posts in the coming weeks. Granted, they are updates from previous years. But Christmas never goes out of style, right?

Are you thinking about Christmas in July? August?

Here is last week’s TTA 58 you would like to visit again.

Carol’s Blogger Tip

Who do you follow on Instagram? Do you follow back everyone who follows you?

I’ve always had a hard time with this subject. I have my own don’t follow criteria.

  • I don’t follow private accounts unless it is a good friend.
  • I don’t follow men ~ period.
  • I pretty much don’t follow people in a language that I can’t understand. *The one exception is a former au pair from Sweden who I like to keep up with.
  • I don’t follow people/companies whose niche/products bear no relationship to anything I am interested in. I won’t even tell what those topics are.
  • I don’t follow back companies that offer to grow my IG account by billions in 20 seconds.
  • I don’t follow selfies of naked/half~naked bodies and anything else that is offensive.

So that leaves everyone else who follows you. Or does it?

There were several Instagram~focused classes at Haven. A lot of Instagram classes. One piece of advice I heard more than once that I’m passing on to you: Only follow people who you will engage with.

As we heard over and over, engagement is so important to growing an Instagram account. I definitely need to improve on my engagement. It’s easy to comment or like someone else’s posts when you like their feed. If you follow someone, but never like or comment, it’s a waste of your time and it lowers their engagement rate.

So bottom line: think about engagement and only follow back those feeds you really like.

Let’s see what your hostesses have been up to this week.

I love a pretty craft/office. If it is painted in pink, it’s even better. See how Lindsay of Lindsay’s Sweet World transformed her office.

  1. I loved all the information I received from Haven. It was my first year participating. I am sharing some Christmas spirit this week, but I don’t think I am ready to say goodbye to summer. Ours basically just started in the PNW. Thank you for hosting!

    1. Kim, wait until you go to Haven in real life. It’s a totally different experience. It’s interaction with other bloggers that is the best.

  2. Excellent Instagram tip today Carol! I love your follow criteria, and the engagement idea. There are so many wonderful accounts out there, I can barely keep up with the ones I love, much less anyone I don’t truly care about. It’s so nice to have the info spelled out – thanks for the clarity! 🙂 And thanks for hosting too – I appreciate you all sticking around for the summer! Have a great week! 💗

    1. I’m glad it was helpful, Barbara. This is just how I do things. It helps to have a criteria to follow. Saves time and brain freeze.

  3. My 14-1/2 yr. old granddaughter is the main flyer in the US World cheerleading team, and is has over 7000 followers on Instagram. I don’t even know how to do it (haha) My oldest daughter (her aunt) is a probation officer and quite concerned about her “out there” in front of who-knows-who. She’s had some heated conversations with her sister (granddaughter’s mother {my youngest daughter})about that.

    1. Cindy, totally agree that we have to closely monitor our kids’ presence on social media. I’m so glad I didn’t have worry about that when my kids were growing up.
