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.

Now, this blog, my social networking, and my words mean so much to me. How can I imagine my life without writing? I am still an amateur, and I strive to improve myself and my skills every day, I learn new things, I read, I write and still, I need to learn so much! Learning is bliss. I hope I become a successful writer someday.
