So, as you may have seen, I’ve just started up a whatthelog instagram account. And, needless to say, I’m a little bit lost. I’ve had a couple conversations with the wonderful people of Litsy about it, but I thought I’d open up the conversation to y’all. So – if you have answers to any of these questions, please comment away! I’d be really grateful 🙂
How good do you think your photographs should be?
Here are three of mine: I was pretty proud of the one of More Happy Than Not, less so about the others. What makes a good instagram photo, do you think? Is minimalist better? I personally find that minimalist pictures all tend to look a little bit same-y, though that’s just my opinion.
I’m definitely making more of an effort with these pictures than I do on Litsy (I kind-of see Litsy as a more informal place, for some reason). However, is it enough?
How many times should you post per day?
Right now I’m doing #diversemar so I’m posting once per day – however, I’m not sure if that’s getting me a lot of followers, or displaying my collection of books well enough. On the flip side, though, I don’t want to spam people with posts either!
How many hashtags do you use?
Can you really #book #books #reading? Do people actually go through these tags? I’ve only really gone through #diversebooks, #diversebookbloggers, and the monthly tags.
How do you stop worrying about followers?
I guess this is more of a general social media question than an Instagram one. However, every time I get a new social media, I always start worrying about followers – why I don’t have as many as some people, why I lose followers, and what makes people start to follow me in the first place. I end up worrying about it so much that I don’t want to use the social media anymore! Silly I know, but I think most people do it.
(I still do that with twitter, a bit.)
Well, that’s all from me – I’m really looking forward to some well-needed advice!
