Prior to this assignment I was quite well-versed in Instagram from my own personal accounts, but also from running a local band’s account from time to time. However, I have never used Canva before this assignment so that was a good learning experience for me. I really did not have a particular promotional strategy for my posts, except that I tried to make the posts have more of a gonzo journalistic feel because that’s how my blog is structured for the most part. The challenging part of this assignment was to pick the right caption to go with the photo because they need to be cohesive for the promotion to resonate with viewers. Nothing really surprised me about this assignment, as it was very straightforward. I imagine I will use Instagram quite regularly in my future career because social media is becoming so prevalent in our daily lives.
