It’s Thursday (already!) And I’m slowly but surely readjusting to this cold, dreary, New England-esq winter. A part of me can’t help but to be nostalgic but it seems Andrew is more than me. He’s already adamant about wanting another vacation. Can I really blame him- Not at all! I’m ready too 🙂
In the meantime…
Today I want to ask YOUR opinion on a topic that Britt and I ponder from time to time.
Is it annoying to post more than 1 Instagram picture a day?
Jenny’s Opinion: For me, my Instagram is my personal photo album or scrapbook if you will. So no, I don’t care what I post throughout the day, and if I have several cool pictures I want to post, I’ll do it. I definitely agree, it’s tedious seeing the same person post picture after picture but in the end it’s their Insta, they can post what they want and when they want. Whether you’re a hairdresser posting your work, you’re a pet lover posting photos of your cat/dog, whatever it is- do it as much as you please.
Britt’s Opinion: “It can be annoying with some people, if it’s people you don’t want to see or promotional posts. If it’s people you want to see, then post as many as you want! Your Instagram is for you, do what you want! I feel awkward sometimes posting more than 1 because I’m afraid that people will think I’m being obnoxious.”
Britt, I totally agree with that last statement- just because I’m thinking that Insta is my “personal photo album, so IDC”- doesn’t mean people know that I’m thinking that. They may automatically assume I’m trying to show off, am”being obnoxious”, whatever it is they could get the wrong message and that makes me feel weary at times too.
Which leads me to….
Do people even actually care?
The majority of my Instagram activity I’d say is fairly low compared to others. I probably post 1 every 5 days or so (Aside from the bulk of Miami pictures the one I posted before that was Jan 14th and the one before that Jan 8th)… of course, pending on what I do with my days. Which usually M-F is work; so nothing LOL. But I find that my usage is highest when I’m of course traveling, day trips, weekends, etc…
And when I’m traveling that’s when I start posting more than 1 a day… Like so,
But like I said, it’s my photo album and the best perk is that it keeps track of the actual dates! So YES, I like to post as it happens so I have the actual date references. Timehop much?!
Okay, now’s YOUR turn! I want to hear from all of you- your opinion on this topic! Let me know…
Also, please leave your Instagram username along with your comment. If I’m not already following you- I’d love to and I’m sure other people who scroll down would like to network as well!
