Taking Bookish Photos: How I Bookstagram

One of my blogging goals for 2018 extended to the most popular form of bookish social media, Instagram. Otherwise known as bookstagram, I’ve had Fangirl Fury (@fangirlfury) on Instagram since my blog’s creation back in February 2017. However, in March 2018, I decided to dedicate more time to bookstagram and my blog photos in general.

My goal for both platforms was to improve the quality of my photos. With bookstagram, I wanted to improve my scheduling. My bookstagram schedule is definitely not perfect, but I try to post at least twice a week, ideally aiming for 4-5 posts per week. If I need to take a photo for a blog post, it’ll likely end up on Instagram and vice versa.

I’ll be walking you through what it takes to create my blog photos and bookstagrams. Warnings that I am by no means a professional bookstagrammer, let alone photographer.

My Favorite 2018 Bookstagrams

Back in March, I decided to put more effort into my bookstagram and photos for the blog in general. By no means I am a ‘professional’ book Instagrammer, but I am still pretty proud of my photo skills and iPhone 6.

While I plan on writing a post about how I bookstagram, here’s the top three things I learned about bookstagraming this year:

-Craft stores are EVERYTHING, but you can also find so many props lying around your house (think blankets, table covers, FOOD, decorations,etc.)

-Daylight is EVERYTHING (at least when you’re using your cell phone and don’t have a lighting set up)

-Don’t hold yourself up to other accounts—this includes how your photos look and your follower count. Have fun and don’t worry about the stats

Listed below are my favorite bookstagram photos of 2018 for each month of the year.
