I don’t have many followers and I don’t feel bad about that, but I love my Instagram feed.
It’s not the “social media” aspect of it, though I do prefer it to Facebook. I enjoy looking at posts, there’s some gorgeous, inspired stuff on there, but what I really enjoy is the creative process for my posts.
I am not a gifted photographer, but I do love quotes (always have) and I have access to stock photos. So, my feed seems to be largely geared toward my combining those two so far. I love reading a quote, filing it away and then coming back it later. Sometimes it resonates in that particular moment and I go looking for an image that captures it. Then an Instagram post is born.
I am not a graphic artist, but I enjoy creating and I think I might be getting a little better at it. At least I look back on my earlier work and see ways I could have done them better, so I am taking that as progress.
I’ll never have a million followers and I don’t really care. It feels good to make something.
