30 Instagram Post Ideas (Especially for Bloggers!)

Today, I’m venturing into the world of social media.  I began making this list of Instagram post ideas so that I could help my own Instagram page.  But then I thought I would share my list with all of you!  I feel like everyone gets in a rut at one time or another, not knowing what to post.  Also, if you’re a blogger, you may feel that all you do is post Instagram content to promote your blog, which can totally take the fun out of Instagram!  The Gram is one of my favorite forms of social media because I love peeking into moments of people’s lives!  If you want to keep your page fun and intriguing (as do I), check out my list of post ideas, which I divided into fashion, beauty, and lifestyle categories.  Let me know if you have additional Instagram post ideas!  I would love to add them to my list!

  1. This is a great post – I have been feeling very uninspired when it comes to my Instagram lately! I’m going to use some of these lifestyle post ideas! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. This a great list of ideas girl! Sometimes I spend way too much time thinking about what to post and I forget about the simple ideas haha. Thanks for putting this together!

  3. These are the cutest ideas! I personally love the coffee/mug photo idea. I’m feeling inspired to post my Starbucks geolocation mugs- you’ll have to be on the lookout for those 😉

    xo, JJ

    1. Ohhh what’s a geolocation mug??? One day, after I poured my cream into my coffee, it accidentally formed a heart full of bubbles. I tried to move to good lighting for a photo, and of course I ruined it! Haha. I will be on the look out for your posts! I don’t get to Starbucks nearly enough. xo

      1. Okay, I totally made up “geolocation” hahah I know on snapchat you can have ‘geo-filters” for wherever your location is so I just made up my own word for the mugs thinking it’d be right LOL but depending on where you are most Starbucks have mugs designated to that state/place. I know Boston has one… almost all states do and some specific places will have them too like Miami or I know Magic Kingdom in Disney World does…etc! I’m obsessed with collecting them!

  4. Fabulous ideas! We’re trying to start to implement a “our favorite things” weekly post but for some reason I keep hitting a brick wall with what to include, so this helps! Also, woohoo for the LuLaRoe Leggings mention 🙂

  5. I think Instagram can be the easiest and the hardest social media. If you aren’t constantly keeping up with it, your followers may unfollower you (other bloggers cleaning their list). But how many times can you take pictures of the same things! Great list!

    1. Thank you! I keep thinking of more! But if I don’t write them down instantly, I forget. I agree that Instagram is hard. I get stressed about being able to visit everyone’s posts and show some love. It can be difficult when you have a billion other things to do! I wish people were more understanding of that.

What are your thoughts?
