Instagram Tips

instagram tips (1)


Instagram to me is an extension of my blog, it’s a behind the scenes of what content I’ll be creating next or somewhere I can keep all my readers updated on the latest.

  • Photographs being cohesive and of the same color scheme are very appealing to the eye. Different colors/sized photographs can look messy and a bit distracting.
  • I love to upload my photos to VSCO cam to get a feel of what the post might look like against previous uploads. You can easily plan what picture needs to be posted next. For example you posted a selfie last night so instead of posting another selfie you can break it up with a flat lay to give some variety to your page.
  • Consistency is good especially when you’re trying to figure out your niche. I can recognize when some bloggers took a certain photo based on the style of editing they do to their photography, It’s almost like branding in a way.
  • Writing back and getting feedback from your followers is the most important thing about IG. I could have the most beautiful photos ever but if I don’t engage with my audience what’s the fu*king point? I don’t have a huge following but I do see how other bloggers can be overwhelmed with the amount of comments one has. I usually block out 30-60 mins during the day to respond to mine, I don’t get to all of them but I promise I see them!
  • Iconosquare is an awesome website that shows you the statistical side of IG. This is helpful when trying to learn the best time to post for more viewer interaction or insight on which posts viewers like most.
  • My favorite photo editing apps: Afterlight, Pic Tap Go, Snapseed, VSCO Cam, Square Ready and Photo Grid.

At the end of the day everyone has their own artistic views on how they want their feeds to look like but there isn’t a right or a wrong way to post. I’m just sharing what works for me and my aesthetics, I enjoy figuring out different ways to be creative and share them with you guys!
