I'm really eager to know how your journey started and what inspired you to become a blogger! Can you please tell me about it? —Gurusha L

I was always fascinated by fashion but started blogging after going through a difficult time and after losing most of my hair. My instagram page helped me gain self-confidence again, it slowly began to become successful as I got more followers.

I am struggling so much in life but only way that keeps me motivated is my self-confidence! Even my education has come to a halt. —Mahmudur R

It's amazing that you followed your passion in life and you're doing what you love. I have tried a lot of stuff but haven't able to find my passion yet.

It’s always good to have a side activity that fascinates you and brings you happiness.

Take your time! When you find something that really inspires you give it your 100%! Everything else will fall into place naturally.

There are so many niches for instablogging like travel, books, literature etc.. Why did you do ended up choosing the fashion and lifestyle niche? —Syed S

I didn’t base my Instagram on demand. I started my page for myself, for my pleasure and because I felt inspired to share my content with others. And for me fashion is a way of expression.

 

What inspires you the most? —Tamanna T

Fashion inspires me! There is so much variety to it now-a-day, and it’s freely available at the push of a button. It’s a lot of fun to scroll through various fashion accounts on Instagram.

I love icons like Grace Kelly with timeless style and beauty! I’m inspired by simplicity and elegance.

 

I have a music account. I post my covers there. How can I reach more audience? —Rashi J

The best way to reach people is through good content, Hashtags, posting at the right time of day and follow similar accounts to yours that inspire you as well.

Are there any specific rules or a certain pattern that you follow when sharing stuff? —Asso A

I try to have a consistent style but more importantly the post content that I truly enjoy! I never post anything I won’t want to associated with or something I dislike! I try and share during peak times so evenings and weekends tend to be the best time. And of course use of hashtags that correspond to my content.

Have you ever posted something and afterwards regretted sharing it?

No, I’ve never regretted sharing anything but I am sometimes guilty of deleting content I’m not 100% satisfied with!

After all, as an Instagram influencer you have to understand that your content is what keeps your followers interacting with you. You always have to be on point otherwise you lose their interest.

Julia, I want to be a dancer but my family doesn't like it. It's only my talent and dream, how can I ask them for a chance? —Ji H

Try approaching them and telling them how much it means to you. I really hope it works out for you in the end.
