    Hello guys,

    First of all before I start I want to say this is a manual instagram account and is no way made to compete with the top journey threads but I have had a stroke of luck I believe, especially for a manual account.

    My niche is unique fashion, and I am currently sitting on about 367 followers whilst following 980. This is all over the course of 34 hours. I have been balancing the following and unfollowing well and believe this is helping me avoid the bans other than my first which i encountered yesterday. I am averaging around 35 likes a picture with my mac sitting on 62.

    I have roughly spent 19 hours of the 34 hours on the instagram page due to having to sleep etc.

    Plans for future?

    Gain over 1000 followers manually.

    Buy followliker when I gain enough followers.

    Start more pages to attract more attention.

    This page is mainly for fun and nothing serious as in pushing for money etc. I am hoping to enjoy the journey while it lasts :)

    Thanks for your time.

    I wouldnt unfollow that much. If you always hit the unfollow limit it will go lower.
    Try not to hit that limit!

    By the way, this should be in the journey section actually. Maybe a mod can move it.

    ahh interesting I have an account I had for a few years that has about 5k , never used a bot on it just would like peoples photos and stuff. Then I had another account and I tried to use a bot and did not work well for me only like 10 followers a day. So I tried manually following very selectively and it seems like have been getting 20% of people that I have followed to follow me back which seems really good but I don't feel like I can continue to do this all the time as its so tedius lol

    I agree its tedious, but it pays off, seeing active likes and comments on the feed is always a good feeling. I am flying through the followers and I don't know why, might be a stroke of luck lol

    Follow until you reach 7.5k following.. Then unfollow.. also if you are manually using an account buying a couple thousand followers would never hurt your follow back ratio. Building an account manually in this day and age is not an easy task.
