Good things are coming…
How to be successful on Instagram? I have absolutely no idea!
Does it mean you have more than 10k followers? An engagement rate of more than 5.6%? Or even meaningful connections?
For me, Instagram is mostly fun and a way to stay updated and connected to other bloggers, online people, and brands. As well as a source of inspiration. That’s why I had a rather huge Instagram clearout last month and searched for some new online favourites. This way, whenever I open Instagram, I’m greeted with images, videos and stories I really want to see. And which inspire me to create and share my own content. And isn’t that what it’s all about?
As I already said in my June goals blog post, I want to be more active on Instagram. That’s partly why I wrote this post. Haha. But besides seeing images and stories on Instagram that inspire me, what do people do to be more active? Especially when you have a busy real-life schedule or if you’re (like me) a lazy and irregular poster.
Note: I have not posted daily for the first week of June, due to current events. But I’ll stick to the plan and post (almost daily) in the order I created the content plan.
30-days Instagram challenge
While looking on Pinterest for ideas on how to be more active on Instagram, I came along a bunch of content challenges. That’s why I created my own. One that is dedicated to my style, interest and most importantly achievable one!
I kept my Instagram Content calendar simple. This way it’s easy to take pictures that suit the ideas.
I also made sure that the layout is cohesive with the 3- picture Instagram feed. This way you won’t have to worry about having two pictures that are too similar next (or above) each other.

Track your achievements
I’m a huge list maker and habit tracker. So one of the easiest ways for me to stay motivated is: make a list and track my achievements. Something I also really love is research. Because, when I’m honest. Having 10k followers and a bomb engagement rate is awesome. And who knows, maybe I can build some more beautiful connections or deepen the ones I already made.
So on the first day of my 30-days activity challenge, I wrote down my starting position.
– follower number
– engagement rate
– meaningful connections
