I joined Instagram in January this year and I am increasing getting addicted, I LOVE IT! It’s such a lovely community and a great way to share your work, behind the scenes action and reach a wider audience.

Folksy and the lovely Viktorija from And Smile have created some great Instagram tips, have you read it?

Thank you for these links. I’ve been “umm-ing” and “ahh-ing” about joining Instagram. I can have a read now and think about it seriously!

i signed up a couple of days before that brilliant blog post was published - i wish i’d read that first!!

i’m really enjoying it though - so much pretty and none of the facebook type faff - looking forward to becoming awesome at it “soon” :wink:

We thought you could only access it from a smartphone but just found you can access it from a PC.
Yet another thing to put on the ‘to do’ list :smile:

Hi, @littleRamstudio , I’ve been wondering whether you could access it from a PC. How do you do that?

My Instagram is a bit confused I think! I set it up as Dottie Designs but it has become far more me, my life, my Slimming World journey with the occasional crafty thing! http://instagram.com/dottiedesigns Feel free not to follow if you don’t want to see random food photos lol!

I have been on IG for quite a while and have built up quite a large following which generate lots of sales both direct and to my Folksy shop. Must work on my own hashtag now.
I love it, it is addictive if your nosey but there is such a community feel to it. Give it a go.

I dunno about instagram. Havent got one and dunno if i should get an account.


(Helen Dale) #13

Have been inspired by the folksy blog posts (always was a late adopter), so am following all now. Not really worth looking at mine yet…so far only a moody pic of MrHbyH (which he’ll probably be cross about if I don’t remove).


(Helen Dale) #14

Not sure I understand the use of hash tags though (oh, I know they’ve been around for ages, but like I said, I’m a very late adopter!). Can anyone explain them to me…simply!?


(Haley Glover) #15

Not an expert, but on IG you can search for things via hashtags. The search section is the second icon along the bottom on IG page (does that help).

I really need to get #handcraftedlove going as my hash tag. Some customers have already used it for me and if I search #handcraftedlove photos of my creations come up (plus other junk tho).

I’ve just been researching a bit to try and understand how Instagram works. I read this article which talks about the licensing implications of the images you share and wondered if anyone had any thoughts on it.
