How to increase your Instagram Followers

Getting Instagram followers is hard, I should know. I actually made an Instagram for my blog 3 times, and deleted it twice. The last time I deleted my Instagram, I decided to connect my blog with my personal instagram, but I felt like I was spamming my friends so I ended up creating my Instagram 15 weeks ago and have 99 followers. So, what’s the key to getting Instagram followers? I decided to ask Jennifer from jenniferleighg.com what her secret was. Jennifer has 10K+ followers on Instagram.  > Check her out on IG here<  The Interview 1) What is your blog about and why did you start it? I think nearly every blogger has that moment where they ask themselves if they should really start a blog and put themselves out there ; I certainly did, and I’m really happy I made that decision.

How to code your blog button!

Blogger Tutorials How to Code your Blog Button + Share with your favorite blogs!  Hi guys! Finally back with Part 2 of the blog tutorial! You can read the first part here How to create a blog button / about me . Thank you for all your wonderful comments and “likes”. You guys are amazing! Now, on to the tutorial. Here are a few tips for your blog button. 1. Make sure your button is not too big. I made mine around 250 x 250 px. The reason is that some blogs might not want to add your button if it stretches out their sidebar. You don’t want that now, do you? 2. Make sure you test out your own code. I could not figure out why my code wasn’t working… so I fixed the problem by adding my code to my sidebar and clicking on it. If it didn’t work – I would go and fix the code. It’s really bad if you give someone your code and it doesn’t work. Even if a reader …
