Blogging 101 - Instagram for Bloggers

Who doesn't have Instagram these days right? Want to know how to get the most from your Instagram account, with over 200 million active users, it can be the social media platform you need to help take your blog to the next level.

Instagram for Bloggers
Lets start at the beginning shall we?

Your Profile
Add a profile image and make sure it's one that is consistent with your other social media platforms and your blog. If you use a logo instead of a photo put that here. You want people to know it's you and continue your 'brand'.
You get 150 characters to tell the world about yourself, so think basics such as name, what you do and location. Make it interesting, why not add a hobby, a hashtag or something you're involved with? 
Probably the most important part of your profile your blog link! Make sure this is filled in and is working. As links do not show up on Instagram posts as clickable, you are going to be relying on this link! As Instagram is mainly a phone app, checking your blog is set up for mobile users would be a great thing to do. Nothing more annoying than clicking on something that simply doesn't work.

As Instagram is a photo sharing app, good quality images are a must. Edit any photos that you need to, even if it's just to crop out unnecessary backgrounds or make them brighter. A picture says a 1000 words!
Instagram offers a load of photo editing options once you've selected an image. There's loads of filters to choose from so make the most of the images your placing online. Make sure they do correspond with your blog as this is just an extension of it!
