BOOK DISCUSSIONS: Instagram (or Bookstagram)…Why do I Love It?


Hello fellow book bloggers!  Today’s discussion question is on “Instagram (or Bookstagram)…Why do I Love It?”

 

So, for those of you who have been following this blog for like…FOREVER…you may have noticed that I did a similar topic like this WAAAAYYYY back in 2015 called “OFF-TOPIC DISCUSSIONS #7: WHY USING INSTAGRAM IS FUN!”

My, how time has flown by, right?

So, you’re probably asking yourself “Rabbitearsblog, why in the world are you repeating the SAME topic again?  Especially a topic that you did like over a DECADE ago?”

Well, for one thing, it’s been over a decade since I last did that topic and THINGS CHANGE!  When I was a wee little blogger in the beginner’s level of blogging, I was taking little photos of my book lovelies left and right (and I’m still going strong, baby)!  But, let’s just say that my photos weren’t as…CREATIVE as they are building up to be right now.  I mean, I am talking about photos like this:

To photos like this:

(See the difference here)?

I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like my early book photos, but at that time, I didn’t have the props I needed to get…CREATIVE and JIGGY with it and sometimes those photos looked like BLAH…

But, at least I’m trying my DARNEST to make my current book photos look HOT for the presses!

Anyway, this post is not just about me rambling about my book photos and stuff, but about why I love using Instagram!

Well, obviously, I just love to take photos of my little lovelies and show them to the world!  Also, I get to test out my own CREATIVITY with book photography by placing little trinkets like *FLOWERS* all around my lovelies for show and tell!  That’s pretty much the reason why I started the Book Photo Sunday meme on my other blog because I just can’t get enough of awesome book photos!

So, do you have an Instagram account and do you enjoy taking photos of your books? And if you do have an Instagram account, feel free to leave the link to your Instagram account in the comments below!  I am always LURKING around Instagram to find some AWESTACULAR photos from other Instagrammers!

Aaaannnnndddd…

Since I’m talking about all things Instagram here, let me show off my book photos for your viewing pleasure!

  1. I love being able to share photos of my books. I try to take part in photo challenges throughout the month so that I have a direction and feature different books. I don’t really have props though, so a lot of my photos are pretty basic. However, I like that the focus of the photo is of the book. Maybe one day I will add more props to my photos. 🙂
