Although I'm still quite new to Instagram, it's fast becoming an important part of the social media side of my blog, and it's addictive! As a blogger, I find Pinterest to be an amazing tool for sourcing and bookmarking ideas, and for driving traffic to the blog. While I like to share photos of my own styling, home and work, it's predominantly a place to pin images sourced from elsewhere, or repin from those who I follow. As such, it's a constant pool of inspiration and of course highly visual, which I love.
Instagram on the other hand is more personal. I take photos of our home, events that I attend, and sometimes the kids. I like that it gives a behind the scenes look at my life and blog, but what's more, it provides a great way to connect with others.
Jessie Webster of Sweet Thing Blog has over 30 thousand followers, and it's easy to see why. Based in Los Angeles, Jessie is an incredibly talented photographer, and her feed of photos, taken only on her iPhone, will take your breath away.
Lastly, I just have to include Alice Gao, who has a remarkable following of over 640 thousand! Long before I joined Instagram, I had been captivated by Alice's photos on her blog Lingered Upon. Her ability to capture simple everyday things with such beauty is astounding.
Are you on Instagram? I'd love to hear what you think of this new series!
