Instagram is both a wonderful and an awful thing – it’s a great platform for sharing what you’ve been up to, showing pictures you’re proud of and cross-promoting content like blog posts and YouTube videos. But it also means the Kardashian’s think they’re important so, pros and cons.
Regardless, Instagram is my favourite social media platform – I love taking photos, editing the photos and sharing it with emojis and hashtags. It’s the little things that keep my entertained, you know?
One thing that’s been growing in popularity recently is having a theme on Instagram – so your photos are all edited the same way or some people like to post three photos at once or they only post using the same background.
And I’ve thought about this (a lot) – I don’t have time to plan a whole theme and make sure everything fits in my theme and not post some stuff because it doesn’t fit my theme.
I like posting whatever I like on Instagram and the freedom, without the limitation of a theme. Though I have noticed that any photos that has my face in it gets significantly less likes.
Does wonders for the self esteem right?
But does having a theme matter? Those with a theme tend to have a prettier page at first glance but does this make the content better or does it just grab peoples attention?
Will having an Instagram theme drive more traffic to my blog or YouTube channel? Or is it just a waste of time because most people using Instagram view it through the news feed and tag searches.
I don’t know, I personally look at peoples profiles very rarely and I think a theme is a waste of time I don’t have – the thought of only putting some photos on Instagram sounds like a lot of stress to me.
But I’m intrigued – what do you think? Do you have an Instagram theme and if so, why? I want to hear about people who don’t have the same opinion as me. Let’s have a chat in the comments!
