As 2017 draws to a close, lots of bloggers will be rounding up all their most popular posts. I’m not even going to try and pretend that I have enough views to do that so instead, I’m going to document my favourite posts from each month in case you missed them. I’m also going to be sharing my favourite Instagram posts from throughout the year. Take a read.
It would appear that I’ve dropped off the face of the blogosphere. Everything was going so well: I was finally getting a couple of collaborations, I went to a PR event, etc. and then I stopped. I stopped posting; I stopped Instagramming; I stopped tweeting.
Before I was confident enough to use my own images, I needed access to good quality free stock photos for my blog graphics. From time to time I need inspiration for my own photography, and I still turn to stock images, drawing influences from ones I’ve seen. I searched high and low, compiled a huge list which has been sitting in my bookmarks forever, and have rounded up ten of my favourite sites to source images for you today.
Hi, friends! How are you all doing today?
One of my January Goals was to establish plans for all of my social media accounts and within the last week or so I’ve really had a brainwave. I finally found a focus to help with Twitter (I’m microblogging on there each day) and I’ve been really inspired over on Insta. In fact, I’ve nearly reached my goal of 300 Instagram followers by the end January! I say nearly, you might notice that I have already reached this target but my I do keep fluctuating in my follower number so I’ll call it a success at the end of the month if it is.
Today I want to share some Instagram accounts that really inspire me and motivate me to improve my photography, my engagement, and have helped me to better understand how bloggers can really flourish on this platform.
