What’s your favorite social media platform?

Definitely Instagram. I love photos. They’re a great way to share with people what’s going on without saying anything. Instastories is my new favorite thing.

Engaging with my followers and other bloggers plus participating in giveaways.

Once you have the followers, how do you keep them?

Being honest. I tell my audience a lot of what’s going on in my life. Yeah I post the fun and fuzzy stuff but I don’t hide the real and raw.

It’s easy. There’s a method to the madness. The followers don’t just flock to you if you post.

Reading articles and staying up to date on what’s relevant to the topics I post about. I also pay attention to the hashtags that others use.
