Instagram is, without a doubt, my favorite social medium. I don’t have a personal Facebook account, I suck at Tweeting, but I do check my IG account at least 10 times a day. OK… it’s more like 30.
Ages a go (back in September) my dear friend Sophie of Soinspo tagged me in the “I heart Instagram” Tag. I’m not quite sure why it took me so long to finally get around doing this tag, but here it goes!
What is your Instagram handle?
How many accounts do you follow?
169 at the moment.
How many followers do you have?
What are your favorite hashtags?
Most definitely #bbloggers, #beauty, #makeup, #lbloggers, etc. I also used to love #ootd, but it seems that people use that hashtag for anything from pictures of their outfits to pictures of potatoes or their dogs :| .
How often do you post?
Not too often, maybe about once a week? I actually struggle with this, because I don’t know if I should post only blog-related content on my account, or if I should throw a few personal pictures here and there. Any advice on this?
How often do you check your Instagram feed?
Like I said, quite often, probably more often than I’m willing to admit lol :)
What is your favorite filter?
I actually don’t use any filters on my photos most of the time. That’s usually because if I post a picture of a beauty product, I want it to look as close to its actual color as possible, etc.
Smartphone purist or rebel?
Most of the time, if not all the time, my photos are taken by my DSLR and not my phone. I don’t really like the way my pictures come out when using my phone camera. So despite it being called “Instagram” I don’t always post my pictures in an instant :D .
Favorite Instagram account?
Gosh, there are so many! Of course I always get excited about seeing pictures from my blogging friends, but I love @oneyeproject, it’s an account by Thomas Berger, a photographer from Norway who is almost blind and posts stunning pictures of Norway. I’ve actually grown to really care for him as a person as well, him and his wife struggled to get pregnant and just welcomed their adorable baby boy few months a go. I really like creeping up on people on IG, seeing their “selfies”, seeing how we’re all different, yet so beautiful in our own way. I love @natgeo for interesting photography and @gabbybernstein– the ever so inspiring author of Spirit Junkie, a book that changed my life. She constantly posts daily inspiration, beautiful quotes, affirmations and lots more.
