SOCIAL MEDIA APPS I USE FOR BLOGGING

BLOGGING

social-m-8

 

Hey Everyone!!!

 

Now, I’ve been debating for a while whether to do this post or not, and thought- maybe I should, because it’s nice to share so that other people who follow my blog can know what kind of filters I use for my blog photos, but most importantly, for my INSTAGRAM Blog Photos. I say mostly importantly my INSTAGRAM blog photos because, honestly, Instagram is more PHOTO based, like telling a story through photos, so I put a lot more editing work into my Instagram photos, to keep up with the aesthetics of GENTLEORCHID photo work.

 

This post though is on the Social Media Apps I enjoy using when it comes to ANYTHING that involves my social media. Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and so on and so forth! πŸ™‚

 

So the way I have done it is that I’ve taken Snapshots from my PHONE (like SCREENSHOTS rather) of the apps that I mostly use, which I use mostly through my phone. I hardly edit anything on my laptop, unless it’s for Beauty Corner SA youtube videos. ❀

 

PHONE APPS!

So this is a snap shot of my home page!!! Lol, never mind the Productivity Folder with “4245” emails. Yea, lol, thats my life. Some of them are from long ago, I just need to delete a lot. I read my emails more consistently know, I just need to clear out the oldies! LOL!

So it may look “busy” but honestly It is sooo much more neater for me because I have organised every app into folders which correspond to what kind of APP it is, and the two folders I use the MOST for my Social Media are the are the ones SLAP BANG IN THE CENTRE!

 

The “Photography” and “Social” Folders are my most used folders on my phone, like, PERIOD.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA…

social-m-2

 

These are the Apps I typically use for my social media. I use these ones THE MOST. A day does not go by without me opening pretty much ALL of these apps! LOL!!! πŸ™‚

 

  • LINKEDIN-Β I use mostly to get business news or business articles, or to connect to people I used to work or study with.

 

  • TWITTER-Β I use Twitter a lot to not only tweet, but to announce if theres a new blog post out, or YouTube video… I’m on Twitter like ERRRRRRDAY!!!

 

  • YOUTUBE-Β On my down time I watch YouTube. Or use YouTube to respond to comments on our channel from our friends and subbies!

 

  • VIMEO– VINES! Need I say more??!! LOL

 

  • FACEBOOK– I have a Gentleorchid Facebook Page for my blog which you can find here.

 

  • INSTAGRAM-Β This one I use A LOT, I post something on Instagram pretty much everyday, and if you want to follow me on Instagram, and see my posts, click here.

 

  • I’m also on Snapchat!!! Yep!!! I snap ALMOST everyday! πŸ™‚ ❀ Do add me on snapchat! My username is: gentleorchidkat.

 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY EDITS

This is another folder I look at pretty much EVERY SINGLE day! These are apps that I use to enhance my photos, edit them, and make them appeal to the aesthetics of Gentleorchid.

 

  • BEFUNKY– Β Be Funky is a GREAT appp for someone who loves to make collages from there photos… It has many times of collages where you can put a number of pictures all on one page, on one spread. Pic Collage, the one next to it works the same way.

 

  • YOUCAMPERFECT-Β You Cam Perfect is a GREAT app FOR THE LADIES!!! You know sometimes you take a selfie and you don’t like that hideous overgrown salty loking pimple on your face?? You Cam Perfect, helps you trim those “you dont want seen” things, and adds a little more of a flawless touch to your face! It also has LOVELY filters for selfies!

 

  • AFTERLIGHT, PIC TAP GO, VSCO– All these Apps I use for one purpose only. They have AMAZING filters!!! I cant tell you how great they are!!! I use a different app for different pictures, depending on what the picture is, and what “effect” I’m trying to create that day ❀ I LOVE THESE APPS.

 

  • INSTASIZE and SQUARESIZE-Β These I use for wen my pic is too big for the standard instagram photo size, these apps help size the picture up correctly FOR me, so I don’t need to worry about it πŸ™‚ They also have great filters too, and also many other effects that are useful for a blogger. Like “text”. Being able to put text on your image, changing fonts. Picture effects, black and white, saturation, highlights etc. I love!! ❀
