my name is laurie and i'm an instagram-holic

5.19.2016

I may have mentioned a time or a hundred that I really love Instagram. I love beautiful photos in my feed and I try my best (and let's be honest, too hard) to have a pretty feed of my own. Yes, I take a whole lot of photos before narrowing it down to just one. And yes, sometimes I make Matt pick between two images that are pretty much identical. And then yes, I edit them on vsco cam... And then there's the whole caption situation... and then I post. It's all a bit ridiculous and I'm fully aware of my ridiculousness. 

But I don't care. I love it. Roll your eyes at me if you will. 
And then there are hashtags! Also ridiculous. However. More followers is a good thing, let's just accept that as a reality ok? As a blogger, I mean. Or as anyone who likes to be liked (raises hand). Hashtags allow for you to be found by others who may have similar interests. They get you followers... They link your image to other fun like-minded images. And you can only use thirty of them per post. That's all about hashtags in a nutshell.

Over time I have compiled my own little hashtag "cheat sheet". All the hashtags I use for different subject matter separated by such and in alphabetical order. It makes it much simpler to just copy and paste than to wrack your brain to come up with them. Just flying my freak flag high, right?

There's also #bloggervibes created by Helene for any photo where I'm just really feeling extra ridiculous about the whole thing.... In the best way!

The list is ever-evolving of course as I find fun new hashtags I want to use. But I sure do love the OCD of it all, right? Anyone have any favorite hashtags that I should be adding to my list?

The majority of these I found here and here, for further reading if you're as Instagram obsessed as I am.

Someone once said to my sister that she imagines children hanging from the ceiling juuuuust out of one of my Instagram photos. You decide. Wink wink.

  1. i am ridiculous too! do you ever show 2 pictures to your husband and then pick the one he didn't say? KC gets really mad at me when I do that, like why did you ask? i'm like.. it helped me realise i like the other one better lol. i rarely do it, normally i trust him, not that he is a instagram pro or anything. i will say i am the worst at hashtags, i use like 1 or 2. i know, that's bad. all of your pictures are SO pretty, by the way. so keep up the awesome work ;)

  6. you are brilliant, my friend. brilliant! i am not *surprised* at all that you have such gloriously organized lists, just in awe of the beauty!!!

  7. Haha every time I see you and Ashley's IG posts I always think to myself how in the heck do they remember all of those hashtags?! I don't know why I never thought it was a simple copy and paste. I typically don't like IG accounts where every picture is perfect or obviously done 100x because I don't think it represents real life but I really like yours. I think you do a good job at least making the subject of your pictures very relatable!
