Good morning my friends! My latest original post went live over on BlogHer this morning, and I would love for you to stop by and take a peek. It’s all about how to prepare your Instagram account for the holidays. Here’s a little snippet of it.
Ah, the holiday season. Is it just me, or does it seem like it makes an appearance earlier and earlier each year? Perhaps it’s because stores had out their holiday decorations weeks before Halloween this year. Either way, Thanksgiving is almost here, and along with it, the holiday rush.
If you’re a social media addict like me, then you know that the holidays make for perfect content for your Instagram feed. Admit it. You’re already considering the millions of ways you’re going to stage your garland, candles and holiday bulbs on your table in front of a white wall.
Or you could be like me, and just randomly snap photos of things that scream “CHRISTMAS!” and throw it up on your feed with a snazzy filter.
My goal for the 2015 holiday season is to make my Instagram a bit more “holiday-ready.” Instead of snapping and posting, I want to slowly create a holiday presence on my feed, and make it feel just as cozy as my home. I want you to look at my feed and think “I definitely want to curl up by her fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate and a warm blanket.”
Except, I don’t have a fireplace. Anyways, that’s not the point.
Here are the ways I’m planning on getting my Instagram feed ready for the holidays.
Slowly shift from fall photos to winteresque photos
Right now, my feed is all about fall foliage, tall fall boots and being outside. But as the temperatures start to drop, the leaves fall and the boots change to Uggs, I’ll be shifting my focus to more things that look like what the holidays in New England would look like. Think snow, hot chocolate and being bundled up.
