For those of you who celebrate Christmas I hope you are enjoying your holiday! I’m currently in Flagstaff, Arizona enjoying my own white Christmas (yes, it snows in the mountains of Arizona). Which is why I’ve asked Heather of Smart and Savvy Style to fill in for me. Today’s post is about her love for Instagram and how it can bring bloggers and blog readers together. I thought it was an appropriate post for today since so much of the holidays are about spending time and connecting with our friends and family. So, pour yourself another glass of eggnog and enjoy Heather’s take on using Instagram to connect with readers. -Erin
As a blogger, I enjoy engaging my readers. After all, that’s what blogging is all about. One thing that I’ve found is that it is much easier to engage readers on nontraditional blogging media, such as Instagram. I’ve blogged before about how much I love Instagram, but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to share my love with Erin’s readers as well.
Why I love Instagram:
Sometimes, I like to take you shopping with me. I share items I am falling in love with and huge bargains that I couldn’t resist!
Seriously? Who could resist these shoes?!
Sometimes, I like to invite you into my dressing room.
I give you 2 or 3 choices and ask you which one YOU would choose! I love to hear about your favorite combinations, accessories, and colors!
Sometimes, I like to give you a front row seat to my fashion show.
I snap a photo of my finished product and share it with you. Your likes help me understand you and your style, which ultimately helps me blog for you!
Do you see why I love Instagram so much?
It’s the perfect way to interact with YOU!
