As you know I am an Instagram Addict. Recently I started an Instagram Challenge, where I scrolled all the way to the beginning of my almost 2000 posts and took a screen shot of the first nine images I ever posted.
Then to screenshot the 9 most recent images I posted.
Now why did I do this?
Its kind of fun to look back sometimes. I started Instagram account three years ago and Instagram has made lots of changes since then… some good and some bad.
When I first stated I wanted to focus on photography and had no clue what I was doing, I just knew I wanted to start sharing my artwork with the public
Now 90% of my work is done digitally on the computer….. and I am sharing more video content, allowing myself to open up to my followers, have a clear vision of what I want for my artwork.
What Did I Find?
I came across a lot of screenshots…. mainly website updates. (Pre Instagram Stories Era)
I found old screenshots of the very first version of my website on WordPress.com, then all the edits I did on Wix.com…..
I also found awful promo ads, image quotes I took from Pinterest, lots of work from my favorite artists that I re posted…
*** Re posting others artwork is NOT the way to grow your following!
This challenge helped me realize how unorganized mt feed actually was!
I spent the morning organizing and archiving my feed.
My feed now consists of ….
- Digital Artwork – #mondaymotivation, #wellnesswensday, #wisdomwensday, #TBT, #flashbackfriday, daily hashtag (national ____ day)
- Tuesday – I will post a photo once a week
- Thursday – Share new print on demand products when new products are released, Customer photos when I get them
- Every Sunday I will share the sales I have made that past week
The rest can be found in my Instagram stories. Anything else related to my art business.
I went from around 2000 posts to 900 posts.
