Are Social Media Themes Necessary?

For anyone who is any tiny bit of serious about their social media, be it for a blog, for work, for interest’s sake, you will have undoubtedly heard about having a theme for your social media. Does every single one of your Instagram pictures feature the same filter, with the same colours, with the same subject? Well, you don’t have a theme, and if you want to be any sort of successful, you need a theme. Do all of your pins have one of three to four layouts within a specific image size, with a set number of keywords in your description? You don’t have a theme, either. Good luck getting any traffic… or so that is what we are told.

Find Me on Flipboard!

Hi everyone! For anyone following my blogging updates, you will know that I’ve been spending the last few months tackling and investing some time in Pinterest. I’m feeling like I have more of a handle on it, and a bit more focus! My attention is now on Flipboard- I have to say, even if I wasn’t blogging, I would keep Flipboard. There are quite a few magazines that I follow, including several history and style. I’m enjoying being able to save/share those “official” posts with anything else I want. (I share a lot of my favourite posts from other bloggers there!), without being crammed full of just pictures.

Until tomorrow,

The Pinterest Question

Pinterest is a hot topic in the blogging world. I think it’s calmed down in the actual world, but it still consumes hours upon hours of bloggers’ lives and it’s very much considered an integral part of blogging for many people. Each form of social media is a living and breathing animal that behaves however it’s creators want (which is completely unbeknownst to the rest of us). In my quest to educate myself, I’ve tried to find as much information as I could about Pinterest, and after much thought, these are the conclusions that I arrived at!

How to Run Social Media for Your Blog

I am by no means an expert in social media or running a blog, but I have learned quite a bit in the almost three years that I’ve had my blog. There are countless courses in how to boost your traffic with Pinterest, create the perfect Instagram story, and increase your mail list by offering something for free. However, most of these are not free and those that are usually land you on a mailing list that you can’t unsubscribe from no matter how hard you try. Today I’m sharing my social media tips that have worked for me – I’m no expert but in the past year and a half I’ve spent a lot of time trying out different things,

Top Instagram Posts, May 2017

Going through all of my Instagram posts for the month, it is interesting to see which posts are popular! Sometimes I think that it will be popular and is barely seen, other times I simply add them because I think they are fun and they catch on like wildfire. It’s nice to see that my own photography and editing skills are improving, and that I strike a good balance of photo types. These are my most popular Instagram from May, I hope you enjoy!

Top Instagram Posts, April 2017

Now that I am spending a decent amount of time and effort on Instagram and I’m slowly connecting with people, I thought I would do a monthly round up of the most popular posts on my Instagram account! Although most of the pictures I post are related to the blog post of that day, I will try to give a little more background into the image itself. This was supposed to be the top five pictures but of course there was a three way tie in the fourth spot, so you get six! And if you would like to connect on Instagram, please leave your Instagram handle in the comments!

Quick Question, Vol 4

I’ve been spending more and more time trying to manage the different social media accounts for the blog, and it’s got me thinking- we all know that each form of social media has it’s own “personality” and type of person who hangs out there…
