My Top 10 Instagram images from 2017

Guess how long it took for me to get an account even though Instagram has been around for 7 years?

6 years!

My account #allaponomarevaphoto is approaching it’s first birthday and yes, it is (was) a stubborn beginning.

Why, I was thinking, do we need another Social Media platform, when Facebook takes care of all the needs?

My reasoning for staying with Instagram a year later are:

  • Like Pinterest, it provides an interface with a never ending feed of gorgeous imagery for constant inspiration.
  • I enjoy seeing all my images in one feed, without the need to click on folders when showing friends or prospective clients
  • The community of IGers is at 800 million active users, which is a @#%-ton of talented people to follow, connect and to be inspired by.
  • Being only a click away from interested clients, guest bloggers or other paying opportunities that are interested in collaborating/growing my brand.

So needless to say, 1 year and almost 1400 followers later (yay!), I think I’ll stick around and share my Top 10 images from 2017:
