Let's face it: we all follow some sort of blogger on Instagram. Whether they have a website and their Instagram is just a spin-off of it, or they're solely a blogger on Instagram, we're all a little bit jealous of them. Lifestyle blogging, food blogging, fashion blogging, it's all hard work. Some people reading this are probably thinking that blogging isn't a job, but it's the complete opposite. Blogging is damn hard, and to come up with consistent content, work with reputable brands, and maintain a life outside of the internet can get very draining. I can already hear some people saying "oh boo hoo" but don't knock it 'till you've tried it.

Blogging is a 24/7 job, and to gain a following is probably the hardest part. You need to be different from the rest, unique, but not try too hard. Sounds like high school if you ask me. Anyways, Instagram bloggers definitely don't get enough credit for what they do. We all know those girls who have 1 million followers for being pretty and knowing how to put on a cute outfit, but there are a lot of girls who have as much potential who aren't recognized for their hard work. So I came up with a list of 12 of Ottawa's best bloggers to follow on Instagram. Their Instagram's are a look into their life, and to go even further, you can check in their bio to see if they have a website!
