Okay. I have to admit I am totally obsessed with Instagram. Since the platform launched it has been my favorite form of social media. I love pictures however when the platform introduced Instagram stories I wasn’t on the band wagon. I already loved Snapchat and had grew a faithful following there. A community of friends that I loved to “hang out” with. Slowly but surely, one post to Instagram stories turned to another and then another and before I knew it I was posting there more than on Snapchat. These days Instagram is my go to social media app and Insta-Stories is how I share my life with others. Hopefully in a way that is meaningful, empowering and entertaining.

Recently, several makers have been doing their thing creating really cool templates and animated posts to be used in your insta-stories. I first saw these templates on some of my YouTuber friends stories but after binging for a day or five, through all the insta-stories I follow, one thing was clear, these Q & A templates are fun and really gaining popularity. ALMOST EVERYONE HAD ONE of some type in their story.
When I went to look up where to find these templates so I could join the festivities, I didn’t find much variety. I did find a huge number of really nice templates by Angela from @TheSundayChapter So if you are looking for some nice templates to add to your insta-story, you may want to check her out.
This morning I had a brilliant idea.
Okay, it wasn’t brilliant, or original but it was an idea. I love to create.
I also love to be productive. Last year, I made a ton of productivity and planner products (mostly notepads and planner inserts) to sell in my Etsy shop. So, I thought to myself, I could digitize those and turn them into some cool accountability tools for my Instagram Story. Of course, my creativity popped her pretty head right up at the thought of making my own story templates.
I spent a few minutes just to play around with editing and I created an Agenda to mark my “to-do’s” on. In true spirit of what I always say on the vlogs, it reads, “On The Agenda For Today…”. I told my instafriends they were welcome to screenshot it and several friends did which I thought was cool. So here’s a few of my Instastory templates.
I especially love these templates because I think they are a fun and quick way for followers to get to know the person they are following. I also think the possibilities are endless in terms of what type of templates can be crafted.
Until Next Time Friends,
