Instagram Features From Morgana´s Book Box

With the new year I found some new energy to work Instagram again. Ha! Who would have thought, right? Between the unforgivable algorithm and my lazy self I figured I´d forget all the junk I was fed up about and just start to enjoy Instagram for myself. Partly because everything else would piss me off. * insert huge smile *insta icon free

With that being said…. I´ve been having fun on the pic platform with doing whatever the flipping foo foo I want. To hell with Instagram goals. It´s time for some awkwardness in form of book love.

Ready to see the features? Sure you are * wink *

I normally dislike my kindle. Not because it´s shit. No. I hate it because it´s dead most of the time. I belong to the lazy chicks who don´t charge their kindles.

Don´t ask me why but I just love this cover. Would be awesome to have this image printed in poster size.

Usual gifts I received from my younger brother:

Laced table cloths ( don´t ask ), colored pictures of dragons ( the pictures turned into wolves as he got older ), a selfie of himself in a picture frame ( because he once felt left out ), A CD with the music he likes ( because apparently, I have no taste in music )… It took the boy 20+ years to come up with the perfect Christmas gift. ❤

Just slap the book on the Lazy Susan, add some confetti, throw 10 filters over your pic and POOF!

Ditch the Lazy Susan but add new filters. * face palm * I´m surprised I found the energy to get up from the sofa the day I took this shot. 2019 is supposed to be a lazy year.

 

 

So that´s it. A little bit of 2018 and a little bit of 2019 and you can already tell where my bright Insta future is headed. Be prepared for sofa pics very soon!

Also, not to forget- If you´re on Instagram be sure to hit me up and give me a nudge to follow you back.

Instagram Feature: Morgana´s Book Box

So, it´s been a little over a year since I started my Instagram project- Morgana´s Book Box.

During my Insta – year I´ve learned many things about Instagram.

  1. The algorithm is the cause of all evil
  2. Bookstagramming ( Book + Instagram = Bookstagram, Book blogger on Instagram = Bookstagrammer ) is tough

A year ago I had a mission to grace the pic – world with my idea of book promotion.

And in that year I´ve seen alot, met many wonderful people and… well, I´ve basically seen pics. Wonderful pictures, crappy pictures… Pictures that made my nose wrinkle and pictures that had me rolling on the floor, laughing.

Instagram is a fun place to hang out.

My grande plan to make the book world a prettier place slowly died down around September ´17. The idea to present a new kind of book promotion became harder and harder with each week. I gained followers but it seemed like those numbers weren´t really that interested in my content. Or they were but the algorithm made it hard for them to see my features. Either way, it sucked.

Don´t get me wrong- I had ideas. I still have them. It´s just that book blogging doesn´t seem to function over on Instagram. Fun bookish stuff? Absolutely. But actual book blogging? Not so much.

I had a slight feeling that my book box idea was getting old.

As much as I wanted to, I couldn´t stick to one theme. It was time to expand my horizon.

Try out new ways to promote books. Because, that´s what I do, right? I book blog.

Besides, I´m pretty sure no one is interested in the bomb that went off in my kitchen or the unmade bed in my bedroom.

So, here are my new book features, sans book box.

 

  1. Inside a book. I like open book pictures. They look cool no matter what book you use. A huge plus point is the little snippet you give from a featured book.

 

2. Indoor Book Box. I´m an outdoor person. Nature provides so much to work with. Indoor pics are cool but not everyday. I feel limited when I´m doing indoor features.

 

3. Close Up. A super SUPER close up of a bookish item. When you don´t have a book at your disposal then you dig out your swag.

 

4. Flowers. Another indoor feature. Since it´s freezing cold outside and nothing is blooming I´m stuck with working with fake flowers. Not all too terrible. I quite like the flowers after using 6 filters. 

 

5. Me. Yes. It´s happened. I crossed the book promotion line and posted a pic of myself. It´s book related. Anything book related goes, right? 

 

Anyone following Morgana´s Book Box on Instagram will be seeing more than just book box pictures. It´s time for creativity to take over!

Sadly enough- I hardly have energy to share any book related nonsense from my neck of the woods. I´m currently suffering from a mild cold and am doing my best to keep it mild and not let it turn into the flu from Hell ( like the last time..which was before Christmas). But I will say that each featured book in the image above is worth a read. Heart tugging romances!

I hope you all enjoy your day!

 

Much Love,

Morgana
