Instagram envy

There are times when I wish my blog wasn't so ... wordy. When I could pop up an image (taken by myself and looking spectacular, of course) and that would be it. That picture would say at least 1000 words and I could take the rest of the week off.

But if there's one thing I've learnt in my several thousand years' working in magazines, it's this: I am visually challenged. I have no idea. I couldn't find a decent pic if I fell over its Instagram glory on my way to the bathroom. And I sure as heck can't take them.

Which is not to say that I don't appreciate one. I love blogs like FatMumSlim, Beautiful South, A Beach Cottage, Oh, Hello Friend, A Cup of Jo, and, oh, many, many others. That list doesn't even get into the interiors porn blogs, or the wedding porn blogs...

You know what they say, you always admire what you don't have. Which makes me a person full of Instagram envy.

Beautiful images make such a difference to a blog. Which blogs do you love for their images?


  1. My Three Ring Circus for sure. Tiff takes gorgeous photos.
    Enjoying the Small Things too.
    And Mama Muesli Bar.

  2. Little Eco Footprints
    1000 Homes of Happiness

    But I like words too ;-)

  3. I have a few faves with gorgeous images. But I'd prefer the words. x

  4. I completely get this - I waste hours drooling over pictures - beautiful pictures on instagram and I sit there and try and figure out how on earth they make something so simple look so gorgeous :) xx

  5. I try to keep both writing and pics easy because I am a perfectionist. I do get turned off by blogs with complete Instagram pics and prefer the camera photography. I will read long posts but not 'rambling' type posts where it's me-me-me! Sorry, hope that makes sense.


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
