How to Find Your Best Nine Instagram Photos 2017

Last year I shared my top nine Instagram photos and it was such a hit that I wanted to share my top nine Instagram photos of 2017. Because my blog is a hobby, yet also a business I am often looking at numbers and seeing what posts did the best. I am so interested in analytics and discovering by numbers what content was well received and which wasn’t.

I am sure that most of you are wondering how I got my list, so I will get to the good stuff right away.

How to Get Your Best Nine Instagram Photos 2017

Download this free app: Top Nine: Best of 2017

The cool thing about the app is that you check it today, but then come back tomorrow if you happen to load a photo that does especially well. Your top nine will be updated until the end of the year (The website “bestnine” doesn’t do this, once you check your top images your grid won’t update even if a photo preforms well at the end of the month).

The app also gives you other insights. You can discover the total likes that you received in 2017, I am at over 137K (thank you!). It also tells you what your average likes per photo is and how many posts you posted on Instagram throughout 2017.

My Top Nine Instagram Photos 2017

1. Most Liked Instagram Photo in 2017

This also was one of my favorite captures of the year. Their costumes turned out so well, Evelyn rocked hers for all of two minutes and Sophie non stop talks about princesses.

2. Second Most Liked Instagram Image

This one was a very close second and another favorite image. I mean who doesn’t want to have a nap, not surprised it was popular. Letter board from Letter Peddler.

Day 1 of my 10 days of giveaways this December has preformed exceptionally. I also find it interesting that it has done so well as I just recently posted on my stories asking what you all want to see more of and the highest vote was for more Home Decor.

James and I went on a date night to HighStreet and I shared our adventures on our stories. Throughout the night I posted this image and it was one of the best preforming giveaways of the year. Pretty sure the stories interaction had a lot to do with that.

5. Fifth Most Liked Instagram Image

A common theme on my feed is photos in front of our garage. I have to say this image makes it to the top of favorite images of the year as I don’t often get all three (happy) kids at once + I kinda love my outfit choice.

6. Sixth Most Liked Instagram Image

This is another example of an image that did well when it was posted after sharing some live videos of the process. The night before this image was posted I was sharing about baking the cake and a couple sneak peaks. I also mentioned how I never (hardly ever) bake and was so impressed with the outcome. Was so pumped you all loved it just as much as me.

7. Seventh Most Liked Instagram Image

Photos of their girls and their sisterhood relationship are a common favorite. With the added cat to the mix and you get something pretty sweet. I see another repeat of the garage door favorite.

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
