Last month we tried something new which involved stepping out of my comfort zone (which was Facebook) and into a new avenue of social media (which is Instagram). Our first challenge was so. much. fun and the response was overwhelmingly positive.
My favorite thing about it was welcoming you all into my home and letting you see a little more into my personal life. (Spoiler alert: Like most pregnant SAHM’s in the middle of winter, my personal life basically revolves around my children and eating.)
This month I’m teaming up with one of my favorite blogging friends, Colleen from Five Little Homesteaders, to bring you another Instagram challenge that we’re sure will be a ton of fun and a great way to get to know each other. Her blog is super cute and obviously involves homesteading.
Starting on Saturday, February 1 2014, we’ll be hosting our second official mini Instagram challenge– a clever way to meet new people on Instagram and have fun in the process. Participation is easy: every day throughout the week you’ll post a picture on Instagram using the themes below. The first day do #1, the second #2, and so on. Be creative with it and don’t worry about posting the “right” or “wrong” things– it’s all just for fun! Just make sure that you tag #mysweet2014 and your cohosts: @grownandhealthy and @lilhomesteader so we can all see what you post!
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
- Follow @grownandhealthy and @lilhomesteader on Instagram
- Take a daily picture using the themes below, tagging #mysweet2014, @grownandhealthy and @lilhomesteader in each so we can find your posts easily!
- Check out the other posts under the #mysweet2014 thread each day to see what other great bloggers (and you great readers) are posting as well.
The words, in case you prefer to see them without the graphic, are:
Want to find out who else is participating in the challenge? Link up your Instagram account below so we can follow each other more easily! Everyone is welcome to participate, the more the merrier. This is a blog hop, so any other bloggers are welcome to post this to their websites as well.
Important: The Instagram URL does not let you choose a profile pic from your feed, so be sure you have a picture you can upload! If you get a “Error: The requested URL returned error: 500″ that just means it can’t find a picture to use, it does NOT mean that your link is bad. Click on “Direct Image URL” if you have one or “Upload from Computer”.
