Are you on Instagram? I have just signed up and have to say that I am already have a blast.
The truth is, I was originally spurred on to sign up after reading Tim’s brilliant post on 7 myths (and a few truths) about the Tots100 rankings. Apparently your Instagram followers are one of the 8 things that are looked at when rankings are worked out by Tots100. Before I got nominated (yes… just nominated, but I am super-duper proud of that) for a handful of categories in the MAD blogs awards 1016 I barely checked the rankings. I have the Tots100 badge, but only recently realised that this would, perhaps one day, show where the 3 Little Buttons blog ranks in the ginormous pool of parenting bloggers.
So… I signed up, without a clue of how to get my Instagram on. *Gulp.
A test photo turned into several, add in a few hashtags… now this is getting seriously addictive. For good measure I followed a few blogging pals and what do you know, I am on a roll!
What started out as ‘something I should be doing’ has turned out to be another thing to just LOVE doing and being a part of. Instagram is a feast for the eyes, and I have just discovered that it’s also a lovely place to find out a bit more about your favourite bloggers. There are so many beautiful photos that don’t quite make it into a blog post, but definitely add a bit of sparkle to Instagram.
Come say hello to me on Instagram 3littlebuttonsblog.
