Instagram Update

I am gradually falling more and more in love with Instagram. It took me ages to get to this point with this social media platform because I couldn’t be bothered to understand it. So I neglected it, hoping it would just go away but it looks Instagram is here to stay and it has kind of won my heart at last.


I love photography, and I am always looking to improve my photography skills. I am currently doing a Lightroom course online, and it is opening eyes to the many tricks of editing which I am loving. I am hoping to complete the course in the next few months and take the photography world by storm!



This 2017, I am challenging myself to grow all my social media platforms especially Instagram. I currently have just over 3600 followers and I will like to see that number increase to at least 10,000 followers this year. I also want to increase the level of my engagement to at least 3%, so I have a lot to work on. Majority of my photos on Instagram are taken by me, and I would like to keep it like that, so it becomes my own little portfolio.


I am also looking to get a camera with wi-fi for easy publishing on Instagram. My iPhone camera is amazing, and so is my iPad Pro but I am thinking of getting one of these Compact System Camera, like the Olympus Pen. They don’t come cheap so I have to think hard about whether I am happy to invest that much in a second camera. I have some cameras lying around, I may sell those first and put the money towards a new camera.




I will be sharing regular Instagram updates on the blog going forward, so look out for the posts. I promise they would be worth your while.

What do you think of Instagram? How are you finding it? Any engagement tips or tricks to share?

  1. Yes I know what you mean about Instagram. I avoided it like the plague for a long time. I eventually set up an account. I didnt get it at 1st nor wanted to really.

    Eventually I took some time to read up on it how to use it etc. It’s not as straightforward to use as FB or Twitter which I think was why I bulked against it.

    I don’t mind it now. I think there is alot if people out there the same from what I have gleaned that feel or felt the same.

    Here’s to your 2017 Instagram year

  2. I love Instagram, though my followers are no where near as great as yours! I love the photos you’ve shared in this post. It looks like you take real pride in capturing them! x

  3. I love instagram, but I have no idea how to build up a strong following! I’d love to know how you do it, so I’ll be checking back soon for that post!

  4. We’re fairly new to Instagram and have a small following but use it mainly for us to record our best moments. We’ve found engagement has gone down in the last 6 months which is a shame x
