I read this interesting article today on how social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook are “programming” us. They attempt to give us little bursts of dopamine to keep us coming back through features like the like button, or pull to refresh. This creates an endless feedback loop where we feel the need/want to keep posting to get more likes, comments, and validation from others. Another article I read a few months ago offered an interesting suggestion that rather than social media say “X number of people like this”, what if it said “people like this.” Instagram’s new algorithm change has got me questioning my photography skills sometimes. I’ll be really proud of a photo and then it doesn’t do as well as I expected it to. But It’s important to remind myself it’s not a numbers game, “people like this.”

"I had daydreams and fantasies when I was growing up. I always wanted to live in a log cabin at the foot of a mountain. I would ride my horse to town and pick up provisions. Then return to the cabin, with a big open fire, a record player and peace." - Linda McCartney 📷: @fioreemeinardo

Meet half of @simplysalvajes, Hannah-Laura (@hyphenlaura), a freelance social media manager and designer. She's obsessed with coffee, cats, and pop culture. When she's not online, which is rare, you can find her chasing waterfalls, combing beaches, and hiking with her physics nerd of a husband. She's currently living her best life in Juneau, AK, and she can't wait to see what the future brings. 📷: @fioreemeinardo

Hiked #cathedralrock in the morning in the most beautiful weather before driving to the #grandcanyon where we spent the night in all the layers and woke up to inches of snow and now we’re driving through the desert on our way to #valleyoffire. Saying my wardrobe and body are confused would be an understatement 🙃
