Can you believe that it’s October already? And with that comes my Autumn stock photos launch. I’ve also created a new Instagram Hashtag Challenge, more on that in a minute. Every season this year I’ve created a set of stock photos that are available for you to use on your blog or social media. This isn’t just for bloggers either, small business owners can use them too, on their social media.
So far I’ve created my Springtime Collection, Summer Collection so it was about time for my Autumn stock photos collection to come along. There are 23 photographs in this collection. I have to say it’s my favourite so far. Possibly because I adore Autumn I think I put in a huge effort to make them as perfect as the season can be. There’s something for everyone’s taste, no matter what genre of blog/business you have. I’ve also included a few different layouts. Horizontal photographs for your blog and vertical images for Pinterest.
There’s also plenty of room on the photographs for you to add titles and other words. I really hope you love them as much as I do. I can’t wait to see them on your blog posts. In fact I have set up a Pinterest board to showcase all of the bloggers who use the stock photographs. Let me know if you would like to join this board! The autumn stock photos are available to buy from my Etsy store here and if you want to purchase all three collections you can use the code ALLTHREE once you’ve added all three to your basket, just pop the code in at the checkout for 15% off. I know you can download stock photographs for free but why not set yourself apart with unique photographs that not everyone will have?
Instagram Hashtag Challenge
I’m really enjoying Instagram at the moment. Although some days I just don’t know what to photograph. I have so many ideas running through my head it’s hard to narrow it down. A week ago I popped a little message in my stories to ask if I set up an Instagram Hashtag Challenge for the last week of October would anybody join me. Luckily a good few of you message me to say you would! I’m so glad as I had visions of it just being me and my husband (if I could rope him into it!). The general idea is that everyday from Tuesday the 24th of October until Tuesday the 31st October you will get a word/few words as a prompt for your image that day.
As you can see by the image I’ve gone for very seasonal prompts. It’s then up to you how you interpret the word and create a photograph around it. It doesn’t have to be really “creative” or out there it can just be of your day. The whole idea is to just have fun and create a little community around it. There’s no pressure to join in everyday. If you can’t think of something or post your photo a day late it really doesn’t matter.
I’ll share a few of my favourites (or all of them, if few people join in, haha) on my stories the next day. It’s a just a bit of fun and I’m excited about it already. I would love to have you join in with me. Who knows if it goes well I might do another week at Christmas. I’ll be posting about it a lot on Instagram and reminding you all so if you don’t already, follow me here.
I honestly can’t wait and I hope you will join me!
