As most of you would know Instagram is one of the most used and popular social media platforms for not only businesses, bloggers and don't forget the everyday people too since its launch in 2010. The list goes on for how many different ways it can be used and is very much one of the great ways many business are advertising through more and more. I won't go to much into the history of instagram, but it doesn't have a very long one as it sky rocketed into something amazing in only 2 short years by hitting 100 Million active users in 2012.. Wow and look at it now!!
Myself being a blogger use the Instagram app to not only showcase different brands & labels that I love but also as a window into my world. I do not want to be seen solely as a blogger wearing outfits, or a model in front of a camera or have a stereotype. I want my Instagram to be a place that reflects me not only as a blogger, or a model but also show some substance of me as a person.
I like to use my Instagram to share creative photo photo shoots with beautiful imagery of my outfits I style and also being a model I like to showcase images as a 'mini' portfolio but without constantly posting photos of just me pushing products at you, because to me that would be a bit dull. I enjoy sharing positive quotes & a little view into some of the goings on in my days. I also like to use it as a place to share my thoughts and what I am passionate about with you all. I share the things that help me on my journey in hope that these things may help you on your journey too.
I want speak truthfully with you all and let you know it is not my goal to gain the most followers or the most likes by constantly pushing brands with huge followings via my Instagram at you as many instagram's do. I also do not like to just post about labels/brands that may not even be my style or the type of brand or product I would use or represent just to get followers. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes I will pick out a jacket or dress that might be a bit different or quirky to my usual style, but I like to mix it back with what I have in my wardrobe and make it my own. I wear things that I love & test out products that are what I actually use in my daily routine.
At the end of the day I want inspire others, bring positivity to my followers & showcase amazing brands with outfit posts, flat lays and beautiful imagery. Now also honestly speaking I was super excited to reach 10,000 followers last year.. thats a lot of people!! But to be where I am today is overwhelming and I feel so blessed that all of you who are following my instagram want to follow and support my journey, so thank you so much for your support!
I wrote about this so you could have a better understanding of what I am about in this squared image, crazy, fun, exciting technological Instagram world! My advice and something I like to remind myself of every day is never forget to stick true to who you are and don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in!
