Comment from Angie Wendricks:


Good morning and happy Friday! Let’s talk about that dirty little thing instagram does called the algorithm 😡.. I get a lot of messages about it and just wanting to know how to work Instagram, get started and grow .. and to be completely honest I have no clue!! I feel bad when I get these questions because I really don’t have an answer . When I started my first account before I got hacked , Instagram wasn’t like how it is today. I just started posting pics! No research no intentions just posted! I wish it had never changed and morphed into a business based thing.. I don’t know any tricks or how the algorithm works . I found myself getting very frustrated.. my engagement has really dropped since they changed it . I think they hide people from your feed ( even though you follow people because you want to see their pics) Instagram picks who sees you . I feel bad for new accounts because of this . Some of my favorites only have a handful of followers and their pics are awesome!! What I’ve come to realize is none of it makes sense! And I absolutely refuse to work it ..should I comment and engage more absolutely yes! But I’m not going to change my account or who I am for followers. Is it nice t have people follow your pictures? Yes!! But getting caught up in likes and followers isn’t something I want to get wrapped up in . I want to take and post pics .. I haven’t jumped on the “swipe up “ bandwagon because we are bombarded with it . I know people just want to see pictures mostly . So I guess what I’m saying is , I’m staying true to me , my account , my pictures is why I started here .. I truly enjoy the engagement and that’s what bothers me the most about the algorithm.. so that being said if anyone has any tips or advice on the algorithm, please share maybe it will help someone! And always thanks for being here!! slowlife slowliving seekthesimplicity simplelife simpleliving theartofslowliving thequietwinter linen

..cozy corner .. I get asked a lot what the opening is by the book shelves, it’s a little inside doggy house I had put in when we were building , I tried to utilize every inch of space in the house. Bug was terrified of storms so I did it with her in mind because she loved to have a tight space to hide in. When Olive isn’t using it , I put extra pillows and blankets in there. The beams are from a barn in southern Indiana. simpleliving theartofslowliving slowliving interiordesign interiorlovers tinyhouse farmhouse countryliving

..winter whites .. I always have flowers in the house , such a simple way to give a space a little life without spending a lot of money..when I do get the itch to buy something it’s usually flowers , a candle or something small and unique.. I try to only but things I love . It helps keep clutter at bay and it saves money. Win win !

..little house on the (snowy) prairie ❄️.. I wanted to answer a few questions I get asked most about the house. The house sits on 7 acres , mostly clover field which a farmer cuts to feed his cows, I mow about 2 acres. We started from an empty plot .. no electricity, well , septic driveway.. nothing ..it took us several years to build after we purchased the land(which sits about 5 miles from our old house) we intended from the start to pay most everything with cash and only have a small loan . We saved for years because we knew starting from nothing was going to be expensive. Especially when we didn’t want to have a lot of debt . I designed the house by drawing it out on paper . There is no “real” plan other than what came out of my head . We found a builder who worked with us to help bring the plan alive. Alex and I finished most of the interior ourselves . He used most of his vacation for the year so we could work on it night and day since it was just the two of us it was challenging. The house is 728 sq ft the smallest allowed in our county . Garage plus house must equal 1400 sq ft so we added a 728 sq ft garage to meet the requirements. It was most definitely a labor of love from start to finish . I’m sure I left out tons of info .. and I am happy to answer any questions , I know a lot of questions mostly involve financial decisions and I am more than happy to talk about that too! Maybe a blog post?

....daydreaming of spring today... isn’t it funny how the mind can switch so quickly? From holidays and snow to spring flowers .. of course when it’s -10 degrees outside there isn’t much else to do.. thinkspring the wood shelves I get asked about a lot , I found it at a local flea market several years ago.. the table I found at the Country living fair this last fall. rusticcountry farmhousestyle modernfarmhouse whiteandwood
