*update* The poll is finally up on Instagram, sorry it is a day late however I went from work yesterday and straight out to my works Christmas party in the city and didn’t get any time in between. I work in hotels… so Christmas parties tend to be in January when we have stopped hosting them and it is quiet enough to have our own.
Covent Garden has so far taken 100% of the votes… let’s see if it can hold the lead!
It’s the weekend! I wanted to do a post that will start the New Year as I hope to end it. With blogging. Lots of blogging.
But in particular this update will focus on another platform, the beast that is Instagram. Don’t worry if you don’t use it as I will remain on WordPress when documenting my adventures, however I wanted to venture a little further outside of it this year and make the most of the social media platforms we have. Not everyone uses WP, such as my close family and friends (is that correct English, ‘not everyone uses WP?!) so blogging on these other channels will reach out to new audiences and will be more accessible to some of my nearest and dearest.
As I have mentioned a couple of times in recent posts, from now I will be putting where I visit in London to a vote on Instagram. I think this is a fun way to let those on Instagram engage with my blog (and I would love to see you over there!) and an exciting way to find out where to explore. In a way it may help keep me motivated to travel… I won’t be crippled with indecision so much if I put a couple of choices out there every week or so, I will see the result and know exactly where to go. To keep somewhat to a plan I will ensure the two options I choose are of a fairly similar nature or distance, helping me plan in advance what to pack, what to wear and what kind of shots I will be taking once I’m there.
My Insta story will look like this. A page giving you the option to click on your choice, and the results shown 24 hours later.
As you can see, Borough Market and Covent Garden are going to be my first choices. Admittedly I have been through both, but I have not had a real thorough look around either of these famous London markets. As they aren’t paid attractions I will be free to spend much more time there and ensure I get the best shots, especially as I will be using a new camera. I am really, really excited to be using a new camera!
I wanted to let you all know of this plan first, for being so good to me over the years and it would only be right. And I would love to know, what would your choice be in London?
Or Covent Garden?
Let me know, and I hope to see some of you vote on Sunday when I put this vote live on Instagram!
Have a great weekend, I am out tonight to see Theo Von, a comedian I really like from Louisiana. He is performing at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire here in London and I had to grab a ticket. I will probably add some pictures to my Insta story and I may add a post or at least a picture here on my blog. Gang Gang!
