Don’t let Instagram define who you are

I love Instagram as much as the next person but what I really can’t stand is when someone compares themselves to an instagram feed. After all it’s a bunch of somebody else’s pictures they’ve uploaded – maybe edited them to their liking and to fit in with their theme.

You may know this instagrammer personally or you may not of even met. Either way please do not compare yourself to someone else’s life. Whether that’s how it is or that’s how they want to portray it. You have your own life and own mind and your own feed to post real things that make you happy to look back at.

I would rather people who visited my instagram were left with a warm feeling of how one of my pictures helped them in some way – i love to write a little positivity with my pictures or a funny story.

Don’t be a sheep and follow be a flamingo. Stand tall and stand out because of just being you.

Wam bam this is how i use Instagram

I myself haven’t stumbled across any blog posts of late doing this kind of thing – maybe a how I edit my Instagram photos but this is totally different.

I’m gonna talk you through how I use Instagram and for good use too.

Ok so as you can see I don’t have a huge following for my blog Instagram but as you can see I pretty much follow those who follow me if I’m interested in their content. Those spam accounts or followers with 100k and following 300 don’t interest me, as I know they are just about numbers. I block them so they don’t pee me off again.

I always make sure I am giving a positive message out to others in my captions, and always use relevant hashtags. I try not to use too many hashtags but sometimes I get a bit carried away.

While on the topic of hashtags I like to follow topics that I’m really into and will give me inspiration and are motivational too. As you can see I’ve followed #Bulletjournal as I’m in the process of making one myself. There are some brilliant pages I could adapt and make my own.

The little save button on a post is great if you see a quote you like or an Etsy shop you want to revisit at a later date. You can kind of bookmark it and can put it into collections too. I don’t have too many at the mo but will definitely improve on this.

Saying that please know that Instagram isn’t just all about self-promo. It’s about inspiring others, making someone smile and occasionally make them spend money when they see a lippy/ item of clothing/something else fabulous you’ve got and they just love it.
