Instagram is my go to social media, its my way of communicating to my readers about what is going on in my personal life and ways to get my new blog posts noticed, However I have been struggling with getting readers or followers to my blog which I think is a result of my constant online / offline which I have been doing since establishing, So now that I have my blogging groove back I needed to step up my Instagram game.
So looking up the best ways to increase my followers and getting the help I need to make my Instagram a hobby instead of procrastination and bad cure for boredom. Here are my steps:
Firstly, Watching Vlogs from other bloggers who have experienced the same thing. My two vlog posts that I watched was:
10 Instagram Hacks That ACTUALLY Work! by Adrienne Finch
How To Gain Instagram Followers FAST! by Sarah Rocksdale
Okay, Just saw there is a part 2 from Sarah Rocksdale (Totally on my Watch List), I have not implemented everything thing that these lovely ladies have mentioned in their vlogs, but trust me they have truly helped me with my Instagram funk which I was experiencing which made me get all excited.
The next question that I had about Instagram is implementing a Instagram Feed Theme, After reading HOW TO HAVE A COHESIVE INSTAGRAM THEME by Marianna Hewitt (blogger of lifewithme.com) I decided to take some tips and tricks to start my own theme.
I wish I could copy and paste what she wrote but that like plagiarism,so Read(here) Mariana’s tips and tricks for getting the perfect cohesive theme for Instagram.
Once I had all my resources down to the Tee , I needed to start implementing some of the tricks that I wanted to do, But I thought creating a visual theme would make it easier for me to get into it. I ended up following this amazing Instagram account that helped me set up my theme @filters.vsco
So which apps do I use? I have about 3 main photo apps that I use but right now for my Instagram posts I use VSCO, its bit of a mind boggle in the beginning but once you get used it, it becomes a common life thing, pictures are always one point.
Yeah okay so you probably thought I was going to give you my tips and tricks , the whys to what made me chose the theme and all that jazz but that going to be part two of the Insta-Revamp blog vibe.
hehe So do your self your favor and read the blog posts and watch those videos until the next installment(sooner than you think) have fun looking at all the followers streaming in, Oh and remember to follow me on Instagram
