instagram blogging

I’ve been trying to up my instagame lately, by interacting more with other instagrammers and being more active.

I’ve had an instagram account for years but never tried to grow my audience, I just linked it here on my blog and shared some photos on Twitter and Facebook and slowly people followed along.

As I’m on this quest for a larger audience, I thought a Twitter chat about it would be a great idea to share some ideas on the subject.

Instagram is becoming one of the most popular social networking sites, which isn’t surprising in our fast paced lives where we love to consume a lot of content quickly.

My favourite instagram accounts are those that motivate and inspire.

I follow a lot of fitness accounts, I like to see before and after photos, I like to see women with abs and lifting weights. I also follow vegan and raw accounts because the food is beautiful and makes me want to up my fruit and veg intake.

Other accounts I follow are bloggers and people I love. I follow a few celebrities. Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Zooey Deschanel. Oh, and yoga. I love yoga accounts too.
