I’ve dropped a few hints over the past few weeks about a collaboration with Susie from This Is Me Now. In last week’s Happy Days post I promised all would be revealed today. So, without further ado, I bring you our new instagram community:

#funseekingkids a New Instagram Community for sharing all those great pics of your kids having fun, read the post to find out more ...

Instagram was a slow burner for me initially, but over the past couple of months I have become obsessed. I love seeing everyone’s amazing photos and getting a little glimpse into all your lives. What can I say, I’m a nosy parker at times. The one thing that really helped me with getting more involved in Instagram as a social platform, rather than just a place to put my favourite pictures, was finding some amazing Instagram communities through the hashtags.

When Susie got in touch asking if I would like to collaborate on something, possibly setting up our own Instagram community, I was over the moon and jumped at the chance.

After several emails and brainstorming sessions between us and a number of polls (thank you to anyone who took part) we have settled on the name of this new community:

#funseekingkids

What Is It?

A place to share all your pictures of your kids having fun. This can be running around/exploring outside, getting messy, playing, being a little bit mischievous, basically anything where they are having fun.

Every Thursday Susie and I will pick four favourites each from the previous week to showcase on Instagram and our blogs (with backlinks of course).

How Can You Get Involved?

Follow myself (burnishedchaos) and Susie (susiehawes) on Instagram, then simply add #funseekingkids to all your pictures that fit the theme. You’ll gain greater exposure and the chance to be featured, bringing even more exposure. You can also visit the hashtag to find other great Instagram accounts to follow and share the love. You don’t need to have a blog to join in, just an Instagram account.

Hope to see you over there, I can’t wait to see all your gorgeous pictures x

  5. I have been using Instagram for years! Before I even started blogging. It is only this past year that I have started utilising hashtags and starting one with Su (ethannevelyn) was the best thing ever, Good luck I will join in. Sarah #FabFridayPost

  19. Sounds like a lovely theme for a insta community!
    Intagram has been a slow burner for me too, and you’re definitely right, the a focus of a community or a challenge definitely makes it all make more sense!
    We love to (try) to have lots of fun so I’ll definitely try to join in!

  36. This looks great – I try not to post pictures of my little ones face – not sure if pictures would still qualify? #KCACOLS

    Posted on 4 April, 2017 at 11:05 am
    1. Thank you. They would definitely still qualify. A lot of people feel uncomfortable showing their children’s faces on social media and we have quite a few linked up already that don’t show their faces but you can tell they are engaged in something fun x

      Posted on 5 April, 2017 at 6:20 am
  37. Fab idea! I love the IG communities 🙂 #KCACOLS
