Begin Simply by April

Begin Simply is a space where I slowly curate my ideal wardrobe while giving a running commentary of the process. My ideal wardrobe is definitely one of neutral hues, simple cuts and quality material. Besides writing about my wardrobe I also intend to include cafe scenes (lots of coffee!) and still life photography. By the way, I watch too much AFL (yes, I am from Australia). On a more serious note, I am still not sure whether to continue on this platform (thinking of merging content from here to my Instagram), but for the time being I will be posting on both platforms - April

With the amount of time I apologise for being absent on here I am starting to think about 'merging' my blog content onto my Instagram (i.e. deleting my blogspot and just doing my posts on Instagram). It is one of the first things I check in the mornings (obsessed? Definitely guilty!). So, I am hoping it will translate into more content, especially during busier times. Also, I find my Instagram more interactive, an aspect of I really enjoy. 

However, I have two concerns if I do end up choosing Instagram over Blogger. The first being the variety and number of photos for a single 'post'. As most people are aware, normally a blog post can consist of a number of different photos of an outfit. I believe this isn't very practical or aesthetically pleasing on Instagram. Secondly, the 'word content' part of each post will have to be considerately edited as no one likes a paragraphs of words on Instagram. On the flip side, both these concerns can be seen as positives as it means I'll try to be very concise.

So, I have not made a decision on what to do but from some suggestions on a similar post I did on my Instagram I am slowing working it out! 

Thank you with bearing with me and I would really appreciate any feedback!!


  1. I really hope that you continue your blogspot, I think it's a much more engaging platform. Not only can you write more (and it's the words I love reading!) but you can post more images with each post, without clogging up someone's feed.

    1. Hahaha you have hit the nail on the head with my concerns if I did only post on Instagram! For the time being, I'll be posting on both. x

  2. since I'm not an instagram user myself, though I find it very tempting (but I don't have a smart phone), I prefer to read a blog. I think you can create more of a dialog on a blog.

    1. It must be very tempting! It is definitely true that the writing length would be compromised on Instagram, thus making the blog a better choice. Anyway, for now, I am going to be posting on both. If you want, you can check out Instagram profiles on a computer by typing in (i.e mine would be Love to know if that makes it more similar to reading a blog?

  3. You know I love both your blog and IG so I'd be so sad to see it go, but of course it's up to you and you should do whatever makes you happy! I completely understand your concern though, I'm thinking of taking a blog break myself.

    I was going to send you an e-mail, but I couldn't find your email address! When you get a chance, you can email me (it's on my blog) - xoxo


Thank you, I try and read all comments!
