How To Grow Your Writing Account on Instagram

The question that I receive the most on Instagram is how I grew my account to 60k followers. First of all, those who have been following me since years know that it wasn’t overnight. It took me three years to get there but it was only during the last year that I learned how to beat the IG algorithm and make my content reach more people. Secondly, all my following is organic. Buying followers is a direct act of sabotaging your account, your algorithm and even your art. I will talk about the cons of buying followers later in this post but first, I am sharing some things that helped me grow from 700 followers to 60k in a year.  I began writing on IG at the end of December 2015, and till March 2017, I had no clue how important it is to switch to a business profile and get the insights of our account. So, until May 2017, I had reached only 300 followers. Now, I had a business profile, I could see insights but still, my page was growing at a snail’s pace. I used to follow all these fe

My Youngest Friend

This post is about my youngest friend, who is none other than my five years old nephew, Vansh. We fondly call him Chiku at home, and he is truly one of the cutest kids I have ever seen. His smile is enough to make my day, which is so pure and lovely. He is son of my cousin and he is my littlest friend. There are so many traits we have in common. Our most favourite hobby is spending time on art & crafts. Every time he buys a new activity book, he comes running to me and we end up doing all the activities in the book within hours. If it's a colouring book, we colour it together. He chooses all his favourite colours and asks me to do the rest. If it's an origami book, we make all sorts of objects given in the book using paper. Sometimes, he gets me busy with the colouring, and he, himself starts playing games on my phone. After I'm done colouring, all he that he says is, "is it done? Now the next page," with a smile. And I am like, this is your job that I am doing, now leave the phone and help me. He is as obedient as he is naughty. Next moment, he would leave his games and start colouring, but just for next five minutes and then returns to my mom and starts his chit chats. He pretends to talk like a grown up at that moment. I would again go and drag him back to the work we were doing. It is always such fun time spent with him. 

While everyone's busy posing selfies with celebrities, I have my cute little celebrity moment with him. He totally loves to get his photos clicked and always give a funny smile when I click his pictures. Then he laughs whole-heartedly looking at those pics. Best moment was few days ago when I received three voice messages on Whatsapp, and when I played them, his super cute voice left me in total surprise. He is too young to type messages, so he simply sent me voice messages asking me to send someone to drop him to my home. He wanted to come and play with me. I thought he would have taken someone's help in sending those messages but later I got to know that he did it all by himself, which surprised me even more. I keep hearing them every now and then. His voice so sweet and soft. He calls me by my name, always. Whenever someone says, why do you call her by name when she is older than you? His prompt response is, "oh! She is so small that she is my friend and we play together. I'll call her by her name." Hearing my name in his voice seems so beautiful. All the three messages began with him calling my name, as if he was on a phone call with me. He is my cute little wonderful buddy. 😘
