How about a dash of humour? You do have a sense of humor, don’t you? I do. It can’t be helped. It’s in my blood. I’m Irish, you see. Okay, no jokes from those of you sitting that side in the peanut gallery. Speaking of which. I’m munching on a couple of slices of fresh white bread smothered with a bit of peanut butter. It’s really delicious. And it’s also providing me with a bit of much needed energy. I’ve got a lot of work to get through before pumpkin time.
It has been one of those days. Perhaps it was last night’s fatigue. Or was it the night out on town. Okay, this time you may laugh. And yes, I have to acknowledge, it is your stereotypical Irish weakness. I’m also one of those who actually take such nights out a lot more moderately than the average guy. But sometimes, the excitement does get in the way. To speak of excitement and all things serious, this is how I went on to gain Instagram followers in a big way.
I mean, we’re talking seriously big numbers. The kind you only see from the rich and the famous. And its still kind of funny how it started. Instagram was already a year or two old while I was already blogging away for my bread and peanut butter. Given this social media platform’s meteoric rise in such a small space of time, I had to wonder why I hadn’t taken advantage of it before. Maybe it had to do with my profession.
And by now you would have figured that I ply my trade as a writer. So, how was Instagram going to be of any use to me? Where was I going to fill in all the text? Would I have space to tell the followers all I wanted to tell them? Or what my boss wanted me to tell them, let’s put it that way then. Well, the Instagram interface gives you plenty of room to have your say. But it’s emphasis is on making a visual impact.
It worked well for me. I ended up taking up photography as a new hobby. It was quite easy to learn how to take great pictures. I mean, have you seen how these smart mobile devices are built lately. Also, the Instagram tools are great as well. To give your viewers the perfect picture, you can basically go to town with your photo-shopping work. No, not buying photos. Although it’s something I’ve managed to get my followers to do. It’s a term that mostly graphic designers started using back in the day.
Speaking of buying, I had no alternative but to buy my followers in order to show viewers who could become potential spenders that I was officially on the map. Because of my numbers, I could become a serious contender to become one of the big players on the social media platform.
