Your initial thought might be: but Hoda, don't you #hashtag all of your photos with #downwithclasses? How could you possibly be a good student?!
It's a complicated relationship.
I realized that I haven't done a proper catching up on these little snippets from my obviously uneventful life via instagram in awhile, and you all seemed to enjoy these sort of posts so here are just a few photos from my current feed (@hodakatebi). Instagram is easily my favorite social media because I think it's the most challenging, artistically, which is rather enjoyable! I think having a cohesive "edit style" or gallery style is something that I decided that I wanted to try to do, as it's a great way to make your Instagram look cohesive, professional, and attractive (this translates into more followers, for those of you trying to grow your following!). And with all social media, it's important to engage with others in order to grow your own platform (not to mention it's just so much fun!). I can safely say I've earned quite a few brand/photographer/blogger collaborations via Instagram and I think it's worth all the time that it takes to maintain/post regularly, engage with others, use relevant hashtags, and keep a unified "look" throughout your feed!
UPDATE: I just ran into a great post on the Nectar Collective that lists the Best Hashtags to Get Your Instagram Noticed & Shared and I though it is also relevant to this post, if you'd like to take a peek!
To tempt you to head on over to my Instagram, I'm going to leave off the descriptions so you have a reason to head on over & see what these snaps are all about (it's also because I'm sleepy and should probably go to bed but we'll pretend like I'm just good at marketing or whatever)
