31 Ideas for Moms to Instagram Besides their Kids

Now, if you are following me on instagram, then you know that I am guilty of over-instagramming (is that a word?) my kids. And if you aren’t following me on Instagram, take a minute to go do so now, please. So, this list has been created for you as much as it has for me to help me diversify my instagram updates. But, who am I kidding…I know I will continue to instagram the wholly mole outta my kids cause they are just too darn cute!

Instagram is in the top 3 for social networks I enjoy and find pleasurable. Yes, you can  still ‘do business’ on Instagram, but it is also one of the more personal networks – not alot of spam, not alot of people pushing something with an agenda to serve. Even when an Instagram update is blog/review/sponsor related it is at least interesting because it is visual. I know many a people have taken to instagram quicker than Twitter because hey, for most people a stream of images is much more engaging than a stream of words, links and hashtag (hash what? Talk of Twitter, also in my top 3, for another time).

So without further ado, here is my list of 28 things that you can instagram, when you are running out of ideas.

  1. A tasty dish you ate using InstaFood
  2. An exotic cocktail you drank
  3. A dessert treat you want to eat
  4. What clothes you wore that day
  5. What shoes you wore that day
  6. A great hair day
  7. A bad hair day
  8. The weather with InstaWeather
  9. The view from your work at home office
  10. The view from your city office
  11. A selfie in the mirror at the gym
  12. A selfie with your significant other
  13. Your favorite walking spot
  14. #BabyMugging (yes, this is still your children but it is such a fun twist I just had to include it)

    #babymugging with my 5 year old. Loads of fun :)

  15. Selfie trying something new
  16. A room that needs organizing
  17. A room after you organized it
  18. A craft you made
  19. Words of wisdom with tweegram
  20. Repost other people’s awesome instagrams
  21. The readout from a gym machine
  22. A selfie post workout
  23. What’s on your computer screen
  24. Your thrifty finds
  25. The tops of people’s heads from a live show
  26. Your awesome  nail art
  27. Your nail art gone bad
  28. The sunrise
  29. A sunset
  30. Shop finds and ask for votes
  31. A page from the book/magazine you are reading

Ok, so those are the photo ideas, you still have to make the photos and the words you add to them interesting.

What’s some of your favorite instagram apps and what do you like to instagram about?
