Instagram


I am having SO much fun with Instagram!


It lets me be creative in a whole other way and with all the free photo editing apps I am in H.E.A.V.E.N !!  I so enjoy taking pictures of things that make me happy throughout the day, and then editing them with borders, colors, sparkles, and words.


I feel like Instagram shows a totally different side of me. It takes me out of teacher, picture book, blogger mode and allows me to share a more personal side, my likes and dislikes of everyday life – things I wouldn’t necessarily blog about.
 

Getting to know the more personal side of fellow bloggers has been a lot of fun as well. I feel like I know these amazing women just a little bit better and feel more of a connection with many of them.


The one thing that I am hoping won’t happen with Instagram is being inundated with products. I love seeing ideas and sharing blog posts, but I really don’t want my Instagram feed to turn into my Pinterest feed. So far everyone that I follow has been very good about keeping products to a minimum, and that makes me happy!

I found a great site that allows you to put your Instagram feed on your blog, the site is called SnapWidget. It is super easy to do, just add a widget and input the code they give you. Check out my side bar to see some of the pictures I have shared on Instagram.

I also added an Instagram link on the side bar to my for those that would like to follow me.

If you are a little intimidated because you don’t feel like you are that creative, have anything to share or are unsure of #hashtags, don’t worry you don’t need any of that to be a part of Instagram.  Even if you don’t share a lot, it is fun to follow and comment and like those that you follow, and as far as the #hashtags go, they are simply used for search purposes and I really don’t care if others find my pictures so I rarely add them.

If you are not an Instagram user yet, I hope I have piqued your curiosity, if you are, click on over and follow me.

Happy Clicking!
