Hey everyone, over the past couple of days I have been arranging all of the photos I have taken in the two years I have been travelling Australia. I have found my favourites and will be posting them onto Instagram starting August 1st, ending around September 1st. I can safely say it took forever to sort through them, decide which ones I thought were worthy and find the best way to consistently upload so many photos over the course of a month. I aim to upload all of them throughout August, uploading three a day using a scheduling app called Later, created by Instagram themselves.
This app will really help me to go about my blogging and daily duties as my Instagram pictures upload, however I will be on the app regularly as I do really enjoy using it and would love to grow the channel. It is a great site for photography and I look forward to sharing my journey through these pictures.
This brings me onto the next thing, I was going to ask you all for some help… I wasn’t sure how I wanted to upload these pictures. Should I do it chronologically, from the plane ride from London to Australia up to the current day, or in a different style? At first I was planning to upload them in a random order, and this made more sense in a way. As Instagram is focused on photography more than text, date order may not look as visually pleasing. For example if one day was beautiful blue skies and the next stormy, the page would look very untidy or inconsistent, whereas if I added pictures of blue skies together and slowly changed the pattern of uploads to match a drastically different image, this would work much better.
Buuuut, saying that, I went into the uploads folder and sorted the pictures into date order… and it didn’t look bad at all. The pictures flowed nicely and even if one does stick out, I am sure I could play around with the surrounding images a little. I went from not fancying date order to being pretty convinced this is what I am going to do. But I would love to know what you think and if you prefer date order as to appear more of a journey, or in a style that might fit a more visual theme.
I think if I upload three images a day, it won’t be too much. It would allow me to show you all my favourite pictures before I get back to the UK and explore further. I don’t plan to stop blogging, so I pretty much need to get them all on here now so I don’t create a queue for myself once I get back and start snapping more. It will be frantic, like one of those full time Instagrammers, but I look forward to it! What I may do is upload a weeks worth of my favourite shots here for you to look at as well, especially for those of you that don’t have the app.
I just wanted to give you a little update on this as I think it is a nice way to bring this travelling chapter to an end, and remind myself of the places I have been. Thank you for joining me on this amazing journey and I hope you have enjoyed reading about it! I look forward to seeing the pictures I haven’t seen for a while and with that, the memories from those experiences. Two years seems a long time ago but I remember it like yesterday. I remember getting on that flight to Singapore wondering what experiences I would take back with me and I wouldn’t change a thing. By the time the uploads are complete I will have another flight to blog about, London under my feet and Europe on my doorstep.
Until then… here is my Australian travel experience from September 2017- September 2019. I hope you enjoy, whether it is here or on Instagram.
