So, if you follow me on Instagram (@beautyandthebeastlybooks) you might have noticed that I’ve been a bit obsessed with “bookstagrams” this week.
What are those? Well, they’re IG accounts to post about books. Usually bookstagramers post BEAUTIFUL pictures, very Pinterest-like.
And I’ve started taking cooler pictures and changing my own feed too! The bookstagram community is very very cool! There are shout outs, representation challengers (where we can be chosen to represent brands for candles, book boxes subscriptions, jewerly, etc..). The bookstagram community is very friendly and I love every new account I got to meet this week. I’m really excited about it.
You all know I’ve been in the indie community for YEARS now and sometimes I feel a bit down over it. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it and I love meeting new friends and connecting with new authors. But sometimes I feel like it’s too saturated. And I found a great niche with the Bookstagram Community. I haven’t been this excited in a long time! Every time someone new follows me (HAVE YOU FOLLOWED ME YET??? LOL) or like my pictures or comment on them I get so excited! And I find myself planning new pictures and the props and backgrounds. It’s really addictive!!!
Here are some of the pics I took this week that I really liked! 🙂
Here are some examples of bookstagram accounts that I LOVE:
