How To Become Instagram Famous - Guest Post by Hill at From Mississippi With Love

Today I am so excited to have one of my favorite bloggers Hill over at From Mississippi With Love on PYB for a guest post. What really attracted me to Hill's blog when I first started reading was her voice. Each post I feel like she is perfectly on point about every statement she makes and I feel like I'm just chatting with my BFF when reading it. Oh and her love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift and Dunkin Donuts obsession cracks me up. Today she is sharing her favorite post from 2014 (coincidentally one of my favorites too!) - you can see the original post here.

As bloggers/members of the year 2014 I think we all know the importance of Instagram. What started as just a way to share your photos with friends and family has now turned into one of the most popular forms of social media. Whether you're sharing #TBT (throwback Thursday) posts of you dressed for your elementary school play or your latest beach vacation chances are you probably post at least once a week or you know once every 3 hours. We use it to share what we're eating, what we're wearing, and where we're going. And when we aren't posting our own photos we're obsessively checking every hour so we don't miss an update from a friend.

Being Instagram famous is a real thing. I could lie and say I'm not dying for one of my posts to go on the featured page, but I believe in telling the truth, also I don't mind sounding vain. So how does one become Instagram famous? Well you could go on a reality show, start a wildly successful online store, or become BFFs with someone who is already Insta famous and agrees to promote you. Or you could totally cheat and buy followers, which I recently found out was a thing #themoreyouknow

If none of those options work out for you, then I suggest including one of these 10 things in each post.
1. adorable puppy or small child
2. Bible Verses. Bonus if the photo is of the verse highlighted in your Bible
3. Starbucks or ornately frosted donuts
4. #ootd #foodporn #cleaneating #fashionbloggers
5. wearing multiple designers at the same time
6. chips and dip plus an extra large margarita
7. your hand sitting across your clutch showing off your bracelet stack and fresh mani
8. host a giveaway requiring people to "like" the post
9. picturesque resort destination
10. the "it" item of the moment - think peonies in a market bag, pineapples wearing sunglasses, giant eye sculptures (please tell me someone else remembers what I'm talking about here)

PS: help my dream become a reality and go follow me/like all my posts
