I’ve became acquainted with a lot of different social media outlets since becoming a blogger.
For me, life used to be simple. Facebook was all I knew.
Then I started to blog and nobody was reading it. Turns out, it was because I wasn’t sharing it (duh!) I would share an occasional post on my personal Facebook page, but let’s face it, my brother doesn’t want to know that I wrote a post about milk blisters.
But my point of this post isn’t to get you to follow me on those platforms (feel free to, though 😉.) It’s to share my love of Instagram.I am now connected with over 700 other mommies around the world. If I have a question regarding child rearing, cooking, cleaning, etc… I can ask. The responses are awesome and often hilarious.The other day, the very first full day at our new house, Miss Z dropped a container of finger paint on the carpet.
Yikes!! We had hard wood at our old place! What do I do?!
First, I take water and a cloth and spread it around. Seemed logical at the time.
I wanted to be as chemical free as possible at first. I did the vinegar and baking soda. I did it three times. It looked a lot better, but you could still definitely see some blue. (As you can see, I wasn’t concerned with cleaning the shaggy rug.)Next I had to try the Folex, because it was suggested by a mommy friend and my cousin agreed with her. My cousin said, “I have some Folex, and it’s amazeballs.”
I had never even heard of it before! So, Folex it is! And in the end, it was the winner! Not perfect, I grant you, but a whole lot better!!Would the baking soda and vinegar work? Probably. Eventually. But I was done trying after three times.
That’s why I love IG. I learn tried and true methods from mama’s like me that had to figure stuff out the hard way.
What’s your favorite social media platform and why? Have you ever asked for help on any of them?
