Discovering Instagram


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.

    This quote is great 🙂 I’m very much the same. I am active on instagram but don’t post as much as I probably should. I’ve never taken much notice of Tots100 rankings although I am signed up and have the badge on my blog. Well done on your nomination! #CandidCuddles

    Congrats on your nomination! Not sure I will join you on Instagram…I’m a bit of a technophobe. Only just made it to Twitter which is where I found you at the #PasstheSauce linky party. I like it there and think I rest my cyber self there for a while, find my feet, or hashtags, or whatever you find on Twitter and then move on to the rest of the internet…May catch you on Instagram when I move my butt into the current century!
