Welcome! I am participating Year2tastic's 500 followers blog hop. She has reached an amazing milestone and I am happy to help her celebrate.
Year2tastic is one of the many educators that I follow on Instagram. Do you use Instagram yet? As an educator I find it a wonderful source of inspiration. You can find me on IG - I'm @hangingaroundinprimary.
To me Instagram is somewhat like Pinterest. It is all about the image. Unlike Pinterest, you are not able to click on a link and be transported to a site with more information. What you are able to do on Instagram is interact with the poster of the image and find out more info and have a conversation, usually right on the spot about the content. I love that I can comment and ask questions about the picture posted and talk to the creator of the content. On Pinterest this is sometimes hard to do.
I find Instagram is a great source for bulletin board and craft ideas as well as the opportunity to get a glimpse into other teacher's classrooms. Don't we all want to take a virtual tour of other classrooms? Instagram is also a stress reliever. I enjoy simply scrolling through my feed and alternately being educated and entertained.
Instagram is also another place to share about our latest creations in our Teachers Pay Teachers stores. As a seller, I am able to post a pic of the cover or better yet, the product in action. This is another chance for people to get a glimpse at my work and decide if it is worth checking out. There is one link housed in the profile. I alternate mine between my blog and my store, depending on the content I am sharing. Some of the products I have featured are:

I hope you will consider joining Instagram. There is amazing content on there for educators with so many amazing teachers to follow!
Until next time
