INSTAGRAM ENVY: 25 january

My obsession with Instagram shows no signs of abating.

For me, Instagram is about quality not quantity, every shot I put is carefully composed, shot, filtered and cropped until (in my mind, at least) it’s perfect. Even after all of that tweaking if there’s a picture that just doesn’t look right alongside the others – even if I can’t quite put my finger on why – I’ll delete it.

Some Instagrammers stick to really specific themes, but I couldn’t possibly post about JUST sunsets, or JUST buildings. My feed is a hotchpotch of anything and everything that has taken my fancy – from an eye-catching doorway, to a weird-looking tree, to a cute pic of my girls (although I try to avoid too much kid spam).

On my blog I make certain compromises in order to make a living, but Instagram is my passion project; at the end of the day the only person I’m trying to impress is me. Which is not to say I don’t care about followers – if people love my photos and decide to follow my feed it’s exciting and flattering and very much appreciated.

I’m always looking out for other great feeds to follow too, so add your details to the Linky so I can check you out. If you like the look of any others on the list, I’m sure they’d appreciate a follow too. So, how about it – wanna be IG buddies?

    I have to admit i think instagram is my favourite social media platform – I never thought i was a ‘visual’ person preferring words instead but instagram has proved me wrong about that. I love getting a sneak peek into other people’s lives through their instagram feed. I tend not to post too often but sadly I’m not artistic or talented enough to compose my pictures well but i love following a mix of people – some who have very beautiful arty shots all the time whilst others with lots of family pics etc and foodie pics i quite like seeing a random mix of all those things.
