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:

Blog Society #blogtribe 

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.

The Evergirl #teg30daychallenge 

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 #solovelysofree 

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

* Location specific communities can also be really helpful, it’s worth having a look at what exists for your location.
Do you have a favourite community on Instagram? I’d love to know
Also I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who took part in the giveaway. The winner has been notified and I look forward to bringing you more giveaways in the future. Thank you for your continued support.

    I really had no idea how communities worked on instagram, so this was a very interesting read. I still find Instagram hard to navigate using hashtags, but will definitely be looking up the #morningslikethese one. Sounds like a lovely way to look forward to one's own day!

    • Hi Kristian, two years ago I was telling people that Instagram was my favourite and strongest community and for many it just didn't make any sense. I hope you find a few communities that work for you. I'm sending you an email after this too x

  • Carly says:

    Great share. I love IG for it's community driven groups, projects, and challenges.

    Hi there Vanisha!

    I thought it was about time I came a gave you a proper comment since in the short time I've gotten to know you, I've already learned so much. Here, I'll stick to Instagram communities. I actually didn't really know there was such a thing, but honestly it's community and connections that I love from Instagram so it all makes sense.

    From you, just recently, I've learned an important lesson: stop worrying about the numbers. Make the connections and the rest will follow! That's what I crave. That's why I write. That's why check Instagram so regularly and am thrilled by comments and likes. It's not the number that matters but the peeps.

    So, thank you for pointing that out to me. And thank you for introducing me to this concept of Instagram communities.

    Big HUG to you:D
