From Fashion Blogs to Instagram Feeds

In the past year, Instagram has created a shift in fashion blogging that wasn’t seen coming by the fashion obsessed. Despite the sudden loss of positive energy after the purchase by Facebook and change of privacy policy,  Instagram has managed to take photo-sharing to a level that other social media outlets have only strived for. With this popularity in photo-sharing fashion bloggers have managed to rise to impressive heights with their Instagram fame and gain new blog followers in the process.
