One month of how to grow your Instagram has been my favourite series to write so far. I’ve talked about editing photos for Instagram, authenticity on Instagram and taking good photos for Instagram. I started the series by talking about the importance of knowing your Instagram community and it’s only fitting that I end the series by sharing with you the best, and my favourite Instagram communities. Instagram has been amazing in helping find and develop friendships with like-minded people and has also been instrumental in helping transition online relationships offline. Just today I had the most amazing coffee date with three young, inspired and creative business women. All thanks to Instagram.
Some of my favourite communities:
Jaclyn from Blog Society has created such a supportive space with #blogtribe It started off with people sharing bloggers that inspire them every Tuesday. These days I’m finding people are sharing regardless of the day of the week.
I stalk this hashtag constantly and thanks to this lovely feature I’ve come to know a few more women better and continue to be inspired, learn and grow. The Everygirl 30 day challenge is a fun challenge they do every month. This month’s challenge is disconnecting from technology after dark.
The Free Woman celebrates the feminine and explores the joy of being a woman through creativity, beauty, relationships, career and social justice. The #solovelysofree community is packed with women who are asking the difficult questions, sharing their stories and navigating womanhood together.
I struggle in the mornings. I’m very slow to warm up in the mornings. I’m happy to give up technology after dark but Instagram and this particular hashtag get me inspired to get out of bed and have a morning worth celebrating. It’s full of beautiful images of people enjoying their mornings all over the world. It’s a wonderful way to meet Instagrammers from different countries.
This is a new community established by my friend Kate (who also has a beautiful blog) and Lime Tree Bower. It’s not nearly as large as the other communities I’ve mentioned but I’ve included it because sometimes it’s best to get in early and become part of the foundation of these communities. You can find information on this community here or on Instagram just look up #floralmasquerade
