Dearie Lovie is on Instagram!

October 06, 2014

I come to you on this fabulous Monday morning with good great news, Dearie Lovie is now on Instagram (@dearielovie)! I've been struggling for the past year to decide whether to devote an Instagram to this blog or just use my personal account to encompass everything (my everyday life, my work, and my blog) and up until now it's sufficed. However, last night I decided to just take the plunge and give this space it's own account.

Here's why:

  • 90% of my followers on my personal account are people I know from real life. Crazy concept, right? Though there are quite a handful of people who follow my personal account who are also blog readers (you rock!), there's just not enough of y'all to warrant lots of posts that are strictly blog related (i.e. - info about new posts, blog happenings, outfit posts, etc). People from my real life don't really care about that sort of thing and blog friends tend to care less about my real life things. So, there's a divide there and I struggle to post content that's pleasing to both parties, and most importantly, myself.
  • I can focus solely on blog-related content/happenings on the new Instagram. Whether I share content from a new post there, blog related ideas, inspiration from other bloggers, or an outfit post I will have a more open platform and more of a target audience to narrow in on. You'll get to see more of an extension of this space on the new IG.
  • Quicker, more efficient way to keep up with Dearie Lovie!
  • I can develop this IG and my personal IG separately and guilt free. 
  • I can focusing on following solely other bloggers/inspiring people through this account.
All in all, I'm truly excited for this new venture. I think it's going to be a pretty fun ride. Also, just because I've started a new Instagram for this blog, doesn't mean I still wouldn't love you to follow my personal account (@ashspring). I just thought this would be great option also for those interested!

P.S. - What's your Instagram/your blog's instagram?! Leave it in the comments or follow @dearielovie on Instagram! I'd love to follow you!
