Instagram Happenings @ LYDIALULUROSE.

I never used to 'get' Instagram. When I first signed up a couple of years ago, I was unconvinced. In my mind, sharing photos was what Facebook was for. Posting a solitary snap for anyone to see just didn't appeal. Plus, like any social media platform Instagram is plagued with #follow4follow comments and users trying to get ahead of each other. Like the true technophobe I am, it all just seemed a little intimidating and I steered clear for a while.
But when I discovered the beauty blogosphere last June, I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to try again. After all, Instagram can be an extension of a blog - it gives readers a sense of your personality beyond what you choose to write about. Of course my Insta' feed consists primarily of my basic beauty pics, but I love having an excuse to take photos of my many many animals or a quick 'Outfit of the Day' shameless selfie. And an outlet to bond with people over an addiction to Pop Tarts is always welcome!
As always, I was a little late to the party with my love of Instagram. Despite my inital apprehension, I now find myself constantly updating my feed and going on a bit of 'liking' binge. It's safe to say that I'm a pretty solid convert! Although I'm trying my hardest to create regular content here on the ol' blog, some days it's just not possible. Life gets in the way and I try not to beat myself up too much about it. For days when I'm feeling uninspired or simply too busy to write, Instagram keeps me in the loop with what's going on in the blogosphere. And seeing as I'm surgically attached to my phone these days (you know you're an iPhone addict when you have to charge twice daily..), being able to post a quick snap at a moment's notice is a luxury. It makes me feel like I'm still engaging with this crazy online world even when things in my own life are a bit hectic. Instagram, I misjudged you...
