A friend gave us this book because she thought we’re hopeless with Instagram.Let’s see if we can pick up any tips.
Stay focused @SYMMETRYBREAKFAST – yes, I am now, with glasses on.
Tell true Stories @KIKI_SUNSHINE – you mean, no Fake News?
@MissDarcyandMe has just over 2K followers – a far cry from all these Instagrammers
When we saw the book cover in the window of an enticing Museum store in Oslo, Catarina and I laughed at the title. Then I received the book in the mail – “to help you along,” said the note. We’re that bad? LOL!
Social media is a funny thing – we love it, we hate it. It can be really informative and it can also be in your face. I don’t want to be caught up in it but in some instances it is a necessity. The world has changed. Once upon a time I was in the world of media/advertising. Today, I would find myself so out of touch if I ever stepped back into that world.
So flipping through this book, with no intention of being believing any of it, there were a few insights – not so much about being famous in Instagram but truths about life in general. These I liked:
Be honest. Be distinctive. @THEDRESSECHEST
Surround yourself with creativity @EDWARDKB
Give in to your impulses @BREADFACEBLOG
Be a straight shooter @MACENZO – like this
Have bursts of enthusiasm @ME_AND_ORLA
Be yourself @THE_SALTY_BLONDE
Make a difference @CASHCATS
Take a different point of view @THEFELLA
Find your smile @SEJKKO
Listen to yourself @ISABELITAVIRTUAL … in all ways
Have fun! @HOTDUDESWITHDOGS – with life, and especially on social media – don’t take it too seriously! Humour, I’ve found always finds interests.
And this one “It’s OK to feel sad” @PANYREK. Life is not always a bowl of cherries – “not every day is ‘amazing’.”
The book READ THIS IF YOU WANT TO BE INSTAGRAM FAMOUS – gives some good advice on what and how to do it. It doesn’t guarantee fame. It makes you less annoying. The one suggestion they made which I think was the best – Comment with care @THATSVAL – someone took the time to post or comment, take the time to appreciate their efforts.
