Color-Coordinated Instagram

It might not seem like it, but I try really hard to update my Instagram with interesting content. I shoot for at least once a week and alternate between poems and artwork or something similar. It's something of myself, like most things I leave online, but I feel like it lacks. 

A lot of branding experts say your Instagram account needs to be color coordinated. Some people even suggest using the same filter on every photograph you share. Maybe, if I made everything have a purple hue, it would stand out more.

The frequency is another problem. I don't produce enough poetry or artwork to cover every single day. I know a lot of poets on Instagram turn out seven or eight poems daily just to fill the space. Perhaps that's why some Instagram poetry is considered lackluster.

I'm not shooting to be famous, and I guess it's a good thing. I don't have the bandwidth to refresh all of my accounts daily. Would it change anything if I did? I don't think so. I used to blog a lot more often than I do, and nothing really changed when I curtailed the frequency. 

Maybe I'm just not great with social media in general.

How do you approach social media? Do you feel like you have a healthy relationship with it?
