    Hello, using this as a personal journal type thing to record my results and for other people to possibly learn a new thing or two (not that I have much to offer). I have had this account since July, and originally it was just a personal account for me to share with friends, but I am taking my pursuit of financial freedom more seriously as of late and am keen on experiencing the financial opportunities that 100K followers will bring!

    Niche: Photography

    Current Followers: 2992

    Engagement is going well, I am in a couple automated rounds and reached almost 500 likes on one of my pics today! I have made my followliker settings more aggressive the last few days as you can see by my social blade statistics:

    Wish me luck!

    Missed my first day of updating thread already lol...

    Current Followers: 3205

    I don't really have a solid posting schedule in place right now...and it's a little bit difficult when all the pics are original and I can't just find some online. I increased my followliker settings and made them a little bit more aggressive, now following 800-1200 people a day. I've had this account since July so hopefully I won't be banned for pushing the limits! I am a little bit worried about engagement...I got 5-600 likes on my 2 most recent posts while other pics were earning anywhere from 200-300 likes organically I have now joined 3 rounds groups I hope I don't have to rely too heavily on these for engagement, it would be nice to see some organic likes that would be better for me in the long run I think....

    I'm happy with growth, more than 100 followers a day...but still have to figure out how to really explode my account, I wonder how I can get on the explore page...
