I have openly admitted to being an Instagram addict in the past and even declared it to be my favourite form of social media. I love that you get to see the people and families behind the tweets. It’s more instant than a blog and something you can just dip in and out of while feeling that you’re getting to know the people you follow.
At a blogging seminar I eagerly attended recently one of the speakers* suggested that you used Instagram as an extension of your blog. She stated that she made sure that you could tell from her photos that they matched her blog by the style, the use of colour etc.
This, completely unintentionally on the speaker’s part, sent me into a bit of a spin. If you follow me on Instagram you might even have noticed that instead of my usual constant stream of photos I have only uploaded a few over the past couple of weeks. I’ve become acutely aware that I don’t have a style or a ‘niche’, my photos aren’t technically great or stylistically themed.
