As you'll recall, I conducted a small survey of readers and their preferences regarding blogging or Instagram. Here are the results:
As I suspected, almost all of you prefer to read posts here on the blog. I was never going to stop the blog, and with 91% of you and perhaps didn't make my thoughts on that clear enough, so I'm sorry if I worried you.
91 % of you said they'd prefer to read the blog, and of those who follow Instagram, still 87.5% said they'd prefer an Instagram page to have links directly back to the blog.
That's an overwhelming endorsement of keeping the blog. However, there was a small interest from some who preferred Instagram, and some who pointed out the visual side of it, which might be fun to work with.
No Kidding in NZ here on the blog will always be the primary venue for my No Kidding thoughts. But I think I might give it a go on Instagram AS WELL. Mostly I'll just link my posts there, or post some of my photos and brief thoughts, so there is no need for any of you to go out and get Instagran accounts! So I'll start it on a trial basis, and see how it goes.
You can find me at @nokiddinginnz, though I will keep my personal account (at travellingmali) for my personal and travel photos.
Meanwhile, it will be business as usual here. And I have had some ideas for blogging this year that I'm a little bit excited by. Watch this space!
