Blog vs. Instagram

December 18, 2013

It’s the end of the year and my little blog is almost half years old hurrah! 

I have a feed full of wonderful blogs I read everyday, Instagram accounts I follow and brighten my mornings, twitter for funny and endearing moments with old and new friends!

I love following most of the accounts of people/bloggers I enjoy in every social/media platform they may share simply because I find that, if I like reading someones blog then I will be equally delighted from viewing their Instagram and vice versa. We share different things in our blogs than we do in other social outlets. 

Some share their unedited moments of their lives on Instagram that they don’t on their blogs. Some Instagram users like me will edit every photo however not all photos will be on both my blog and on my Instagram. Snapshots of my morning coffees or walks will appear of my Instagram while my blog will feature posts that will have a series of themed photos only. A select photo of those will be featured on my Instagram but there will be so many more on the blogpost. 

I would like to share some of my Instagram moments here on the blog today!

My little Milo when she was just a few weeks old.

Listening to music from my Steelseries Siberia V2 headset and drinking coffee from my favorite design letters by Arne Jacobsen  mug.

My favorite tea with lemon and tangerine from my parents garden when I was visiting Greece.

If you are a blog reader only because you don’t own a phone that supports the Instagram app there are so many ways on web that will help you get around that. One way is to just visit your favorite bloggers instagram account on the web directly. Mine can be found here! The feed will be automatically updated however you will not be able to comment this way. There are some web apps that will help you with that however like Statigram or Webstagram. Both will allow you make your own feed, comment and favorite photos for safekeeping.

I want to make a note here. So many people misunderstand how “likes” work. Often they are interpreted as a vanity ego push for the person that posts their pictures. Personally I favorite every photo I like for safekeeping. Instagram is just another cloud client like Pinterest and it will work as a mood board for me. So when it comes to photos I only favorite the ones that inspire me, the ones I like to come back to.

If you follow my blog then do visit my Instagram account for everyday photos and my twitter for updates and unedited random thoughts and shots. Links can be found below or on the header of my blog!

Have a lovely day!

    Love this, Katty!! I just got on Instagram a few months ago and so glad I did – the creativity there is out of this world! I highly encourage anyone who doesn't have a phone with IG to view bloggers' IG feed on the web (like you suggested) – it's amazing! And you know how much I love your IG – truly an inspiration!

      I used to watch other peoples feed on web too :) Then suddenly I realized I had over 50 people I would open individually everyday so I decided to just add instagram to my phone even if I wasn't uploading any photos. But the people I met inspired me so much I decided to start too heheThank you for your kind words you are as always so so lovely! Many warm hugs ♥PS: So glad you joined instagram too! Thats where I found you and your lovely blog ♥♥♥
