    I've made new accounts a week ago but didn't reach that amount of followers so it seems to go well for me. People say that when you reach 10k it can slow down.. scrape new accounts maybe and try to keep the following number low. 1 to 3 pictures a day is fine too.. maybe do s4s too

    same in here. growing really slow at 12.6k followers. 60-70 people a day at max... although engagement is better than expected but still, I wish that the gains were much better

    You can give the account a rest for a bit and then see if things pick back up after a couple days of rest on the account.

    I remember your journey to 10k, you was like at 8k and I was way behind with 5 or 6k. Now im at 20k and you still at 12k? This is bad, this is really bad... :(

    that's quite a turn of events :D I "overtook" plenty of people but now they are catching up to me. the content is great, always unique, no idea, probably downgraded by instagram or something) I'll probably give it a rest again until the end of the week and see how it goes. I'm in no rush and not competing with anyone) although it's a shame when you start earlier and get behind ;) good luck though! glad to hear people read my journey)

    No, why do you think so? In your opinion these niches are easy to grow)?

    In my experience, if the content you upload isn't rehashed and is somewhat unique, then it won't be hard to get followers.

    Sometimes it's like that for me. I get around 50 followbacks/day for a couple of days then, with the same settings, it goes up to around 300 followbacks/day. No idea what happens

    Yes, it might depend on days. Weekends activity is very different from working days'.
