I’ve talked about Instagram in a previous post but lately I believe that Instagram is the new blogging. As an artist/jeweler/business owner, it provides me with what I need to tell my story about my pieces and behind the scenes in my studio. It’s fast and simple and I can reach a much wider audience than Facebook or blogging. It’s my favorite go-to social media platform.
Instagram allows each caption to be 2,200 characters. I never use that many words….lol. I’m much more to the point but at least I know that I have the option of using more.
I actually prefer using IG instead of blogging. It’s faster, much more fun and super easy. It feels like a community over there and I don’t have to overthink what I’ll post.
Instagram feels like a live journal to me. I can post works in progress, my studio, new pieces or whatever strikes me in my business that day. You can have multiple accounts and switch back and forth. Many people have a personal account and a business one. (Best to keep them separate.)
Because IG is such a visual platform the most important thing in my opinion is having great pics. You don’t have to be a professional photographer, even though those people have the most amazing IG accounts, but I suggest taking great shots of whatever you’re featuring. There are many apps that can help you with that.
In short, I feel that Instagram is the new blogging. I can tell my business story in fun square spaces. I use it everyday to find whatever suits me and to show what’s going on in my little world. If you’re not on there yet…check it out!!

My name is Manon. (pronounced Man + O) Yes….my mom cursed me with my name. In her defense I guess she never though I’d leave Quebec. I’m a jewelry artist and painter. I’ve been creative as long as I can remember and things haven’t changed. I now live in Scottsdale, AZ with my man, Rob. I spend most days in my studio making pieces that speak to my heart. Thanks for stopping by!!
