Instagram May Update

So it is that time for an Instagram update already? Where is the year running to?

I feel like I do not have much to report on Instagram, like I felt last month, but you all enjoy reading it. I have the stats to prove it, so I thought why not!





In the last month, I have noticed a little increase in my engagement and following, which is great. I am still posting almost multiple times a day, and I think it is helping me get my eyeballs on my profile.

The most important thing for me on Instagram is engagement, so I want to increase that as soon as I can. I am also after increasing my following. I am currently at 3,866, which is good but not good enough. I was at 3,820 a month ago, so the growth has been slow this last few weeks, but I am optimistic. My target is to hit 10,000 followers by the end of 2017, so I need to step my game up.





So what would I be doing differently this month? Nothing. I would carry on as normal, posting everyday, using the relevant hashtags, interacting with accounts I follow, keeping my photos looking pretty and all.

I don’t have an Instagram theme, my account is pretty much like my blog, so it is all about fashion, my personal style, beauty, and a bit of lifestyle. I find themed accounts boring just as I find most niche blogs boring.



The way I see it is, I enjoy posting what I post, so I want to attract people who enjoy these posts with me. Me sticking to a theme just for Instagram won’t work for long, so I won’t even try, lol.




What are your thoughts on Instagram? How is it treating you? Do you believe in having a theme?

  1. Instagram is flipin hard work. LOL! I have taken time out to read up on it and how to use it. Not simple to use at all especially for compers like I am

  2. Instagram engagement can be a time consuming monster! Lol No, but seriously engagement and numbers is important for bloggers and influencers. I’ve found you have to be consistent for growth but also having giveaways helps too. As for theme, I go back and forth on it’s importance. It’s pretty easy to get lost on always trying “keep up” a certain theme… I think it’s more important to be more true to yourself.

  3. Instagram and I have a love/hate relationship. I gathered 3000 followers in my first few months on it but since then, it has been SLOW! I think like most social media engagement and perseverance are key, for sure!
