Hey guys, I decided to recently start my first Instagram journey. I decided to go into the animal niche and it has been exactly a month from now. I just wanted to report my general feel, accomplishments etc. I started off by finding good quality pictures off of tumblr and such and followed around 200-300 people per day. This lead to a slow growth but all my followers are real. I u followed on Wednesdays or Thursdays at 100 per hour for maybe 4-5h per day. I only in followed the people who weren't following me and I will soon un follow everyone once I hit 5k followers. Here are my stats for the first month (Oct 18-nov 17) followers: 4113 Following:3815 Posts:66 (averaged 2-3 per day) Engagement : currently getting atleast 500 likes per picture sometimes more (highest with 730) and give or take 7-11 comments per picture (some have a lot more around 30) I'll be updating my journey every week or so or perhaps monthly.
