Bookstagram Challenge | June 2017 #WishfulWonder Challenge

Friday, May 19, 2017

Hello, my book loving friends. Another month is nearly upon us. You all know what this means! My blog-y friend Tressa (of Wishful Endings) and I are pleased to announce we have put together another Bookstagram challenge. (Can you tell we're lovin' this bookstagram thing??)

As is always the case, thanks so much to everyone who has joined our challenges thus far. We're having so much fun, and appreciate your creativity and time. Whether you join our challenges or share them for more exposure on your IG pages, thanks for all the help in spreading the word. Know we're grateful. Now, onto the other Bookstagram-y things, my usual habit (you know I *have* to share some of these creative beauties, right??), below I'm spotlighting a few photos that I've loved from our May challenge.

Next, yes, I am going to indulge in my usual "spiel" trying to tempt you to join us.

+ If you’re pressed for time to participate in daily challenges, first and foremost, while we love it when you do, there’s no rule that says you must post every day. (Not that you needed my permission to say this, but I thought I'd put this out there.)
+ If you think you can’t participate because of it being “too much work,” try taking a handful or several days’ worth of photos for an hour. (This is generally what I try to do, which is nice and I often find I have a little “stock pile” of Instagram photos as a result.)  
+ If you're looking to meet other Bookstagrammers (people in the book community on Instagram) and bloggers, or build your "brand" in the book community, joining a challenge is an excellent way to do this. 
+ If you don’t think our #WishfulWonder challenge looks like a good fit for you, there are TONS of challenges on Instagram. A brief #Bookstagram or some variation of a #BookChallenge hashtag search will show this. 
+ Best of all, the best thing about these challenge (well, aside from the people. And the books.) is the creative outlet. You develop your OWN style of photos, which is what makes everyone's account so unique! I've seen simplistic (in terms of prop use, etc.) photos that are stunning and I've seen more elaborate shots that compliment the book and suit the style of the bookstagrammer. Plus, if you're like me, and you love creative outlets, this is an excellent way to do this. 
+ Still not convinced? Go ahead and follow our #WishfulWonder tag on Instagram or Twitter to be inspired!

Everything for this month is self-explanatory (or we hope so!). Introducing our June 2017 #WishfulWonder Challenge.

If you have any questions about the prompts, please feel free to ask! Again the rules are simple. We’d love to see your pictures, so be sure to tag us with the usual, #WishfulWonder hashtag. Also, feel free to share this.

We'd also LOVE your feedback on favorite prompts. Swing by our May Challenge intro post to vote in our poll, or drop a comment down below.
