Narrowing down a particular aesthetic for my #bookstagram felt more like choosing a favorite type of pie.
I mean, I love so many different
pies vibes. And I know for a fact I’m not the only one. So, how do you choose your look when establishing a #bookstagram? How do you narrow down the dominant colors or which bookish-merch you feature? Do you have a pattern of posting, such as (2) flat lays, then a selfie – so on, so forth?
In the end, I went with my gut and worked with the same style/s I choose in my home: plants, wood, old bottles, vintage farm tools, eclectic collections, etc.
Truth is, I think it’s a little unfair that a #bookstagram has to “flow” but that does seem like the name of the game. The more your ‘gram moves in synchronized scheme = the more likes get tapped.
Here’s essentially what I came up with that corresponded with my personality and the things I love:
Talk to me about your #bookstagram or (if you don’t have one) some of your favorites. Did you struggle picking a “theme” or do you just post what you’re feeling?Are you drawn to a certain style of book photo? Is there a particular piece you ALWAYS feature in a book flatlay? Favorite background?
