I recently listened to a Podcast episode named “5 Reasons to Leave Social Media” by Dr. Shante’ Bishop of Branding for Believers. This podcast episode really resonated with me because I got off of social media with the exception of sharing blog posts and to interact with the moms in the Phenomenal Moms Facebook Group. Social media became a drain for me because I would post and then constantly look at the metrics to see how many people liked it and how many people commented. I was really concerned about the perception of me via social media. I was obsessed with…
