If there’s one thing I love about the whole Instagram/blogging community, it’s the support that comes with it.
There might be the odd ‘friend’ with greener eyes than they’d care to admit but, for the most part, I feel like a lot of us are virtually surrounded by wonderful people who read, share, and appreciate what we do and make all the hard work worthwhile.
That’s exactly why I’m writing this post. I’d like to give a shout out firstly to a couple of the amazing women who I can always count on for some Insta love but also to a few more who I’ve never met, or spoken to but whose content I’ve really enjoyed over the last few weeks.
Not about the Kids – The best apps to make your social media content stand out
This woman brings some much needed colour into my social media feed and life in general on a daily basis. Yes, I love black, white and grey but I can appreciate colour and she’s got tonnes of it. I also know as soon as I see Helen’s photos that they’re hers and I love that. I relate to so much of her content but this post in particular about the apps she uses to make her social media stand out really resonated with me. *Rushes to open App Store and download them all.
Tinker Tailor Online – 3 simple style updates you’ll love
I can always count on Antonia for love and support on Insta. She works with some amazing brands on her blog and I want quite literally everything from her beautiful lifestyle store in London too. My wardrobe is pretty modest these days and, as you already know, I’m not really one for experimenting when it comes to colour. That’s why her post on updating your style stood out to me. These accessories are things I could really see incorporating into my wardrobe this spring without having to make any dramatic changes.
These Four Walls – The unusual reason behind my love of grey and white decor
Wow. What a post. Abi is another lovely engaged Insta friend of mine plus she’s a fellow lover of all things grey and white. That’s of course what made me click on this post in the first place but once I started reading, I realised there’s so much more to it. I really don’t want to give too much away on here so definitely read it for yourself but I will say that I feel like I got to know her a little better after reading it and take my hat off to her for being so open.
The Elgin Avenue – How to land your dream job at any age
I’ve mentioned this post a few times on my social media channels recently and for good reason – I was inspired! I confessed in a previous blog post that, at the moment, I’m not in a position to freelance full-time but this reminded me that I don’t have to be. It’s still my dream job and it doesn’t matter what age I am when I eventually (and hopefully) get it. Thanks for the reminder Monika.
The Anna Edit – My top blogging tips and the future of the platform
This girl is the DREAM. I love all of her blog content, literally all of it, and she’s the very person who convinced me to buy dungarees so I really couldn’t be more grateful. This post was a little different to some of her most recent ones though and I really enjoyed it. With daily-changing algorithms it can sometimes seem impossible to navigate the world of blogging and social media and it really helped to hear what someone whose been doing it for years thinks of all the changes and what the future holds for us internet addicts.
I’ve been thinking of writing down my favourite posts on a monthly basis. What do you think? Did you enjoy this kind of post?
