Show Notes

Instagram is testing a feature to not show how many people like a post. Frankly, I'm excited about this change. I would rather not know what others think of a particular item. I do my best to hide statistics where I can. If I obsess over them, it can take me to a low mood.

I was talking with a friend who podcasts, and they shared that they don't care about their stats. They like what they are doing, and the stats would cause them to stop podcasting potentially. I echo this sentiment; it took me about two years to get one of my shows to have what I would consider "high" numbers. In the dashboard for that show, I hide those numbers when I can.

I can hear Amanda right now telling me about how stats are a useful tool for the measurement of your content's success. I agree on that; except I wish I could hide the numbers until I'm in a mindset to think critically, not emotionally. Not at 3 am when I'm on Twitter when I can't sleep.
