Welcome to my new blog series. I decided to launch it because I often get asked questions about my social media channels and my blog; my tips, tricks and advice. I thought I’d combine my advice with someone else who is absolutely smashing it. Each post will include invaluable advice from another blogger.
So, to kick off with the first post I thought I’d tackle one of my most frequently asked questions; how do I grow my Instagram account?
I got in touch with blogger and friend @jcjlifestyle who has recently exceeded 10,000 Instagram followers. In the first six months of this year, Jasmine’s following has grown by a staggering 175% so she’s definitely doing something right! Find out how in my latest post…
Instagram was part of my life in late 2012, back then no one I knew really understood what it was never mind how to use it. Little did many know, this photo-sharing app would become the platform it is today and a monetisation channel for bloggers like me.
I needed to find my theme; my aesthetic. I’d admired many accounts over the years, they all looked so cohesive, I’d scroll through my newsfeed and would instantly know that it was from such and such a blogger because of the posts’ visual identity.
A year after starting the blog, a lot of trial and error I finally feel that I’ve got there. Of course, it’s an evolution but I do feel happier that my Instagram feed is where I want it to be.
I get a lot of questions about how I edit my photos so I thought I’d share my favourite apps and the specifics functions that I love about them…
It’s crazy to think that it’ll soon be the first birthday of iambecca.com. It’s a project that I wanted to get off the ground long before it launched; as I’ve said before, the biggest hurdle for me was finding the confidence to put myself out there. Once the blog had launched it was a case of figuring out how to juggle it with a demanding full-time job; definitely something I’d underestimated.
Drawing on my experiences over the last year I’ve come away with a lot of learnings. I’ve put this post together as an updated version of a post I wrote last year – Blogging: What I’ve Learnt This Year. So, if you’re reading this and you’re a part-time blogger my wins and fails may help you in some way or if you’re just perusing this post and want a little insight into what we bloggers do, read on…
