Have you heard about Instagram’s new IGTV platform? We have never gotten super into YouTube, although we have been uploading all of our videos there for years, but our community has never been super active on that platform. When Instagram announced that they were launching a platform that you could upload videos up to an hour to (right now, it’s mostly 10 minutes) we felt excited because a good chunk of YOU love Instagram as much as we do.
It took us no time to decide we were going to start making video content for our very own channel, CLJ TV.
We plan to put out weekly DIY episodes, Cooking episodes from Chris (these will go live every Sunday with a corresponding recipe post here), CLJ Q&A will move over there. We are going to share monthly recaps of life and projects around here. We also thought it would be fun to do videos about blogging as a business, tool demos, A Cabin Diary (as we’re just starting that project!) and House Tours.
In fact! We just posted our first episode–an updated house tour we shot yesterday!–to our channel last night! You can watch the 4 minute house tour video right here.
You can watch IGTV videos by clicking on the IGTV icon at the top of your feed in the Instagram app, or you can download the standalone IGTV app for iOS or Android.
You will also be able to watch videos from the “IGTV” icon on Instagram profiles. It’s located first in line with the Instagram Story Highlights.
We’d love to know what else you’d like to see from us over there? I think it might be one of those things like Instagram Stories was. We were all a little hesitant at first and comfy in our snapchat bubble, but now I love Instagram Stories. And we’re excited to share longer videos on CLJ TV. Hope you are, too!
