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.

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.

  • Hello! I wanted to welcome all the new faces around here as it’s been a while since I did any sort of introduction. So here is a little about how I started and a goal of mine, please do share a little about you, and a goal too!⠀
•⠀
I started this blog over four years ago while on mat leave with Sophie. I’d never met anyone who blogger, didn’t know a thing about building a website but had a passion for social media and a need for connection.⠀
•⠀
Six months later I went to school for graphic design and graduated from BCIT and Emily Carr in Vancouver a year later. It was a crazy year doing school and keeping this blog afloat — but I’m so glad I did it!⠀
•⠀
This space has grown into such a beautiful thing for me. A place to feel inspired, creative, encouraged and connected to so many others in the same and different stages of life.⠀
•⠀
It’s been on my heart (for over a year now) to create a physical place for connection, not just this profile on Instagram. I have no idea what it looks like yet but the passion is growing stronger as I feel I might start having more time to develop on this idea. I think I need to start taking some of my own advice, the same line I say to those wanting to start a blog but don’t know how. Just start, you’ll figure it out as you go.⠀

  • Has anyone else started to get that back to school panic yet? Like how the heck is it two weeks away?? I was talking to a friend yesterday about both our kids going into kinds this year and how strange of a stage it is. We’ve spent 5 years raising these little humans of ours and then off they go to spend most of their day learning. I’m super excited for Sophie because I know she’s going to love it, but that weird mom panic is starting to set in 😅 also! Ezra is going into Grade 4 😶 when did that happen?! He thinks he is going into grad 5 because he was in a 3/4 split last year and already knows everything that Grade 4’s would learn 🤷🏼‍♀️ he’s got a good argument but I keep telling him I’m pretty sure he’s going into grade 4 still, poor guy.

On a whole other note... Evelyn has started to master this whole potty training thing and I bought he some underwear cause we are fully committing (minus bedtimes) things really do happen all at once when it comes to parenting hey.. we’ve got all the feels happening today 😅😢😳😍😊🤔 ps: @peoplefootwear my kids want to thank you for keeping their feet stylish and comfortable this summer 😘 #gifted #peoplefootwear
