I had the pleasure of taking over the I Love Anchorage Instagram account over the past weekend. The account was created by the Anchorage Economic Development Corporation in an attempt to make Anchorage the #1 city to Live, Work, & Play in by 2025. The account is handed over to a resident of Anchorage every Monday and Thursday to showcase to the IG world how they live, work and play in and around the city. For my friends & family on here that don’t have Instagram (IG), I thought I’d share my journey with you.
On Thursday I was given my password for login and quickly got to work.
The rules are simple; 1. you’ve got to sign off on every post, 2. keep it clean, 3. and post at least once a day. Hating when people over post on their social media accounts (I’ll never understand nor want Twitter for this exact reason), I settled on trying to make 2 posts a day for my time in control.
I have no idea how people post to their social media accounts multiple times a day (or even once a day for that matter) unless it’s part of their full time job. It was a mental workout to be constantly thinking about the posts; how to set them up & execute them to my ideals. Thanks for those of you who followed along. Now on to my next adventure – filling the freezer with halibut!
