How to become Instagram famous

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


  1. Haha--this is funny! Instacrack as I like to call it, is so addicting. I check it more than once an hour, and probably post way too much! I had no idea you could buy followers--now it totally makes those people less IG famous in my eyes!!

  2. I swear, if my pictures don't get at least enough likes to go from listing out everyone's name to a solid number, I delete it.

  3. hahaha yes to all the above! I would also add photos of your Michael Kors watch to the list

  4. Haha! Add a J.Crew filled #OOTD to the list (.....guilty x 1382908390). I don't have the exciting life or the selfie skillz to be Instagram famous!

  5. ıllıllı [ ON SALE NOW ] ıllıllı



I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
