Lifestyle | How I Instagram. Tips & Hashtags!

Let me first start with a small disclaimer to this blogpost: I’m not a social media expert, I’m just sharing my way how to be besties with Instagram and her algorithm. Because what I’ve learned from the last six years of blogging and using social media is: Regina George aka Instagram is indeed a mean girl!

I have noticed that there is big difference between social media and blogging then and now. When I first started everything was literally blooming in the social media and blogging field. Everyone was trying to make place for themselves in the field. There were also less exactly the same flowers blooming. Now the field is full of influencers, not a bad thing! They are just better in how to bloom. Secondly, everyone has his or her own way to express themselves on Instagram. I am someone who takes is slow and not seriously, in the meaning of not rushing to hit the big ‘’K’’. 10k, 15k etc. On my Instagram I have 7k (in a lifespan of 6 years) lovely followers who are perfectly enough for me. Especially when I blog only part-time and not for business, but for pleasure.

What worked for me the most, and it sounds cliché, be yourself! No need to photoshop, shrink waists or legs. First, you’re pretty the way you are, and it takes a lot of your time before you post it on your feed! Use this time for something else, like eating a cupcake.

So, my first tip Loves: do you prefer edits on your feed: only a filter is more than enough. Trust me, less is more. Go for a more natural filter. The pink, orange, purple and blue filter is already taken! By a lot…Be Different with the filters. My second tip Loves: don’t use a filter? Like me. I only edit my pictures with the features that comes with your phone or Instagram itself. I only change the brightness and the contrast of my pictures. That’s it! These slightly changes are more than enough, you’ll notice the change instantly. My third tip: keep one colored background of your choice trough your feed. My favorite? White! Even when I post an outfit the natural light works fine. No white background? No worries! I then use something white in my picture. No white background at all? Again, no worries! Adjusting the brightness gives my pictures a white haze. As long the color white occurs, I’m perfectly fine with it. Tip four: find a rhythm of posting on your feed. For example: I start first with posting product pictures after that with outfits after that again product pictures after that selfies. So, on and on. This way to keep it matchy and variously on my feed. Tip five: hashtags! Hashtags! Hashtags! I can’t say it enough Loves. Using them works perfect for me. Also, post them in your caption post! If you wait even for a second to post them in a comment, they’re pretty worthless, as your post will be buried in that hashtag feed the instant you add it. Use popular hashtags, even when they don’t match your niche. I use sometimes celebrities’ names, brands, trending topics and random hashtags. I do this to change my position in Instagram, so that my picture can be find in every corner of the social media field. Last tip Loves: interact! The best way to get exposure is to interact with you followers, your readers and other bloggers. Support also other bloggers who are new in the field. Help them bloom too! I do this by being an admin of a lady’s only group on Instagram. We ladies support each other by liking, commenting and following each other. Want to be in my group too? Slide into my Dm! Sharing is caring, literally.

To end this blogpost Loves, feel free to copy and paste the hashtags! Remember: change them regularly with popular hashtags.
