Hola  Today post is not about my ootd, beauty stuff or travel log, it's about my thoughts and feeling. This question have been asked by many people lately so I guess if you guys really wish to know the answer, let me reveal it here.

"Why You Don't Play Snapchat?"
Yes, this is the question that I have been asked lately. You might wondering why I think it's annoying. For the first time I being asked by a random person, a friend of friend actually. She said did you play Snapchat? I said no because I din't. She is like many question mark on her head and ask me why. I said nothing special, just I don't have time for it and I'm not interested. She continue saying aren't you a blogger? Why you din't play this? I thought most of the bloggers do.

" So, Blogger Should Play Snapchat? "
First, it's always my decision as a blogger whether I want to play or not. Frankly, when not necessary, I don't really want to spend time on social media or blog. Not saying I don't concern about it, I do but doesn't mean I need to give up the precious time with my loves one including boyfie, family and friends.

I do understand some of the bloggers like to play snapchat because they wish they can share more about their lifestyle with their fans / followers. I means I tried, I installed it on my phone but after few days, I uninstall it. No offence, but I found it's not interesting to me. Everyone got their own preference. I always prefer YouTube than snapchat. I know, both of them are different. But for me, they are the similar.

" Two Jobs. No Time For This "
Yeah, I got two jobs, just in case you don't know yet. Full time as Digital Marketing and part time as blogger. After working for 8 hours at office for full time job, I need to blogging at night time. Most of the time I take photo of those sponsored products on night time or weekend. If you realize, last time I'm active on Instagram, posting photo daily. But now, I only upload photo once per 2 -3 days. Sometime when I got free time, I will record some video and upload it to my YouTube Channel.  If you're my subscriber, you know I only upload one video after a period of time. Facebook is quite easy to manage so I'm still quite active for it. Other than that, I really appreciate the extra time for my own life, life without camera and phone beside me. Yes, when I'm single, I used to active in all social media platforms, attend many events as I could and spend time to blog about them one-by-one. But now, not anymore. I'm not single anymore so I need to spend more time to enjoy the life with my boyfie. Don't get me wrong, this doesn't means I will quit from blogging and social media.

" I Want To Enjoy it While I'm Enjoying In Reality "
Sometime, I really want to enjoy it while I'm enjoying at that moment but not holding a phone and running here and there just to record it. Yes, it might be fun to record down as memory. But I already got some of them on YouTube. Some privacy matter, I don't like to record everything and even upload it on snapchat. Well, if you can get what I means.

" No Rushing Anymore "
I love the current lifestyle. I can choose and accept any campaign that I want, no need to rush due date because I don't have many pending project on hands. You guys might be thinking, if I accept so little projects, how do I earn from blog? I'm pretty sure some of the bloggers knew some of the project is not paid but still, PR still asking for this and that. Well, I will reject this kind of projects. I only accept project with payment or the project that I'm interested.  Not a problem for me, I still can earn at other social media channels.Other than that, I can just share my travel experience, beauty products that I think is good to use, delicious foods that I hunts with you guys. Blogging is my interest / hobby since I was 16 so it's not about time matter.

Thus, don't ever ask me again why I don't play snapchat. If I have time for it, I would rather exchange it with the precious time for my family and friends. Sometime I feel guilty because our parents need to keep track the updates of our social media channel to know what we are doing now. I MISS MY FAMILY.  Loves

P/S : Please understand this post is about me but not about people who playing snapchat. Play snapchat is not a crime so please don't misunderstand. Thank you.
