Yeah, this today.
You know how you give someone advice you know is good advice because it comes from experience and yet they decide to do their own thing because they know better without having any experience (except failure)?
Yeah, grinds my gears.
I have not other words.
Ever find yourself giving wise counsel only to have it completely ignored?
Growing an Instagram account can be tough. Getting people to follow you, to share you, to like and comment is down right challenging.
What really sucks is that you start to see some results and people are beginning to follow you and then they flee – unfollow almost as fast as they followed you. At first I was being courteous and following them back, but I soon learned that these accounts were following my account just so they could get a follow and then they would unfollow my account.
Well, if that doesn’t just burn ya up, I don’t know what will. People work really hard to create good content so the can get followers and really make an effort to do it via a legit method (I mean I get spam offers for “follower generators” all the time). Kinda makes ya mad, ya know?
Is that really how people get followers to their accounts? Spam follow accounts and hope they follow you back?

The directions are right there! READ them. Follow them. Stop asking questions!
It’s Friday the 13th and apparently basic functions of the human brain have stopped working as we are inundated with people who don’t/won’t read the directions.
Don’t have a great day…
I was at a baseball game over the weekend and I was reminded of a blog post on another page. I am re-posting it here for your consideration.
There is nothing more irritating than elevating something to a level that is unwarranted. This is no different.

Can we just get on with it already?
What do you think? Have an opinion?
Maybe not so much.
Having been the “new guy” for the last two years so I am still getting co-workers (who have been here a lot longer than me) giving me “advice” about how to do this and that. The problem is that the “advice” isn’t necessarily the same “advice” that was given by other co-workers. Now, I have had “advice” from multiple people about the same thing from different points of view and for varying ways to do the same thing. Only, the advice is THEIR way to do it and not actually what the SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) says about how to do it.
So, I am just gonna do it my way because they all got it wrong and the SOP is mind-numbingly stupid because no one has rewritten it in years.
