i’ve been on #bookstagram since
the land before time 2014. it’s changed a lot since then and now there are a TON of “bookstagrammers.” (that word always feels weird – in the same way i find the word “youtuber” weird.) i’m proud to see where the community has gone, but i realize it’s so difficult for new users to gain exposure. trying to find new, small accounts was a struggle because instagram makes it so annoyingly hard. but hopefully, this new series will help small accounts get more attention and for more people to interact with each other. sooooo may i present to you… (wow that was a long intro)
what is it?
#BookstagramBoost is a monthly meme hosted by Aimee @ Aimee, Always and Alexandra @ Twirling Pages where you can feature your favorite bookstagrammers who fit into the monthly themes (which will be revealed on both Aimee’s and Alexandra’s blogs on the third saturday of each month). this meme highly encourages you to share “smaller” bookstagram accounts, but that’s not a requirement!
*if you want: you can add #BookstagramBoost part of your weekly/monthly wrap-ups, turn it into a Twitter thread, etc!
how do you participate?
- FEATURE: come up with a blog post (or Twitter thread!) featuring bookstagramers who fit into the theme for that month!
- ENCOURAGE PARTICIPATION: make sure to include the meme instructions (what the meme is, and how to participate) in your blog post!
- ADD YOUR LINK: add your post to the linky on the main post from Aimee, Always or Twirling Pages for that month! (linkys will open every third Saturday of the month, and will close when the linky for the next month is up.)
this month’s theme: COLORFUL
some of these accounts aren’t suuuuuper colorful since i tend to like a minimalistic style, but i think they still fit.
@talesfortay has super creative and artistic photos which i’m IN LOVE WITH. i especially liked this one with the flowers showing on top.
okay, i know @michellereadsbooks’ photos aren’t THAT colorful, but i love the way she adds the subtle hints and highlights. they’re all so clean and bright and it feels so fitting for spring.
@booksuitcase has such clean and bright photos; i’m in love!! (okay, clearly for me colorful = bright, but WHATEVER) the pictures are all so pretty and i’m really glad i stumbled upon this account. *hearteyes*
somewhat more colorful? yes! i really liked this photo from @readingdesires because of the colors. the oranges and pinks and greens and blues ahhhhhhhhh.
