Not too long ago I decided to delete the Facebook app from my phone. I realized that every time I would pick up my phone, I would open the app and then would spend hours scrolling. Or I would just pick up the phone to scroll Facebook.
Since deleting Facebook, the urge to type it into the browser and check has still been there but it's getting easier and I'm definitely enjoying more tech-free time. I have to say… I don't miss it either.
Social media is a big part of blogging but I don't really thing I needed to be scrolling Facebook endlessly all day every day. Plus, I'm not a huge fan anyway… but I definitely didn't delete Instagram.
Instagram has quickly become my favorite app and social media platform. I used to use Snapchat also until Insta rolled out their stories features, then Snap fell by the wayside.
Honestly, I just don’t have all that time (with 4 kiddos now) to be spending all day on social media to post the same photo (or slight variation of that photo) to all my different social media outlets.
So recently I've decided to just focus on my Instagram and not much else. Yes, I still have profiles and pages on all the “required” platforms but I don't put as much effort into them as I used to.
Also, I don't spend all day scrolling Insta like I used to do Facebook. Insta is quick and I can see and be updated by all my favorite people in about 5 minutes as opposed to getting lost in the feed and endlessness of Facebook.
With all of that being said, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you all of my favorite Instagram apps. Things that I use to schedule posts, edit photos, suggest hashtags, and create movie stories from a single photo.
