So let’s talk about what exactly algorithms are, why they’re a good thing, what the new Instagram algorithm change means, and why asking your followers to turn on notifications is a BAD idea (I talk about the real solution).READ MORE

When Life Works

As usual, when inspiration strikes (especially for writing), I’m rounding the corner of a block halfway through a run with an inspirational podcast as my partner.
