Instagram - Advice & a new Vlog
I hope that you have all had a good Monday.
I only have two days at work this week due to the big move.
I think that the nerves are starting to kick in. Its not so much all the little annoying bits like redirecting bills and stuff but just the fear of moving things.
I am also worried about getting the cats used to a new environment as they are still rather young.....
Anyway I didn't start this post with the intention of having you all listen to my problems.
As a little sorry, I have included my latest upload to Youtube.
It's a vlog in which my partner played Fallout 4 ( slightly unsuccessfully) (please remember to sub to this gaming channel as it is still a baby :( )
The main purpose of this post is to talk about my experience with blogging on Instagram.
This post has been requested alot and I just haven't gotten round to it. But this has now changed ;)
Insta is a funny little website, so simple yet so competitive.
I find that it is the best place to physically show the products you love, with minimal fuss and drama.
I do love a decent selfie.....
Below are a few tips I've learnt:
1 ) Thing about how the picture looks - is it eyecatching?
Sounds odd, but people scroll through insta and they rarely look at the caption with it.
I find the best way to make the picture noticeable is to think of the background of the image and the lighting.
Now I personally cannot afford loads of different backgrounds so I use some of my favourite blankets. Lay it out flat and then take a picture from above. As in these images
2) don't be disheartened if your subs go up and down -
Alot of people are obessed with their follower to falling ratio. You'll work out the genuine people to follow back ;)
3) Careful with the hashtags!
Now I love a hashtag, but even I think that too many can really harm a picture. Just pick a couple and stick to them :)
4 ) Finally - careful with the filters.
You will notice that my pictures above, have next to no filters on them.
I think that if a picture is overedited, you struggle to make out what it actually is and the true beauty of it!
Overall though, it is a great place to capture peoples attention - especially if you love the same type of products!
