Today is the final chapter of the “What I Have Learned on Bookstagram” small feature.  Are you guys sick of hearing about bookstagram yet?  It’s okay if you are. 🙂 This last entry should feel a little bit self-explanatory, but nevertheless, I think it bears repeating.  If you want to be a part of a community – any community – one of the best ways to cement your place there is to participate in the community. On bookstagram, that means: following other accounts. interacting with other posts (likes and comments). posting in your stories. starting (and participating in) conversations. participating […]

What I Have Learned So Far on Bookstagram; Pt. 4: Hashtags

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! Today on the “What I Have Learned So Far on Bookstagram” series, I want to talk about hashtags. I’ve seen people have mixed feelings about hashtags.  A lot of people don’t care for them because they can look a bit sloppy in the caption section of the post and bookstagrammers are particular about their visual aesthetic.  However, hashtags let you file your post in certain discussions, increasing the chance to be seem by different people in the community.   So a couple things about the location of hastags.  Like I before, many people feel […]

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! Today is part three of my “What I’ve Learned on Bookstagram” series.  As I’ve noted in the previous two posts, I am by no means an Instagram expert.  There are beautiful feeds out there with tens of thousands of followers and I bow to them.  But I do think I’ve found myself in a comfortable groove, and I wanted to share some tips and tricks that I have found helpful. Today, I want to talk about tagging.  This is different from hashtagging, which is also important and I’ll talk about next week. There are a few […]

Hello my loves and thank you so much for joining me for Week Two of this little miniseries!  As I mentioned last week, I’m not the most seasoned of all bookstagrammers, but I do feel like I’ve learned a few things and I want to pass on the tips and tricks I’ve picked up in the last couple years. Today, I want to talk a little about engagement groups! Okay, so, first of all, when I dove into bookstagram, I basically just went in like: “Pretty pictures is all I need, right?” Oh, I was so smol and naive. I […]

My journey with Bookstagram has been an interesting one. Most people, I feel, dig in and bring their followers from other platforms, join all sorts of rep searches and giveaways, and quickly sink into the community.  This tale is a little different, one of a lone voyager because I am most comfortable in my my skin when it’s just me, the ocean, and the sand. Nevertheless! I have passed 1000 followers and while it has been a slow journey, that’s also the speed at which I have chosen to take it, and I now feel qualified to talk about this […]
