Don’t follow everyone. I made the mistake of following everyone that followed me. Years later, I’m still weeding out tons of It Works distributors and other people selling candles or Tupperware. Instagram doesn’t have a way to organize followers, which is so annoying. The list of followers is one gigantic list.
Use hashtags. Make up your own hashtags if you feel so inclined.
Participate in photo challenges. Maybe you’ll find your people out there.
Take photos of popular things: coffee, food, animals, clothes, concerts, travel posts.
Make it as personal as you want. I guess people will like selfies until the end of time. If you’re not into selfies, put yourself out there a little at a time. Take a photo of your manicure or your new shoes, old shoes, etc.
It should be a reflection of who you really are. I know, Instagram makes it so easy to make everything beautiful. Take advantage of those filters.
Try to make connections with people. Like their photos. Comment on their photos.
Take photos every day if you can.
The truth is that nobody is as fierce as RuPaul. But don’t give up trying to be the fiercest you that you can be.
