Do You + Be Kind: Growing Your Instagram – Part 5

Okay y’all…I’m so excited to bring this post to you as part of the Do You + Be Kind: Growing Your Instagram series!!  Who better to ask than some of your very favorite Instagram pros, and I can speak from personal experience that these boss ladies are the real deal.  I asked these women to be part of my series (and could have included so many more amazing ladies too!!), because I truly admire how they embody the main principals of the series: they stay true to themselves, their style, their brand, their businesses…and they exhibit kindness along the way.  Couldn’t ask for a better group of pals, you guys.  Take in what they’re giving you!  They’re letting you see behind the scenes of their growth, their personal experiences with the IG app, specifics on what works for them, and…I wonder if you’ll notice a common thread through many of the tips + tricks shared here…😉
(All accounts linked at the end – go follow these amazing IG buddies o’ mine!)


Thank you to these amazing pals for sharing their tips, tricks + kindness with us all!  I learn from them daily…go give them some love today!:

    I truly love what you gathered here Erin. It’s a jackpot of goodness for us to learn from. Thank you for taking so much time to help us all grow. My favorite part was “there is room for all of us here on Instagram.” Thank you !

    I love your stories on IG and I’m learning and researching from the best of you all and from different categories as well, I’m still trying to find out what it is I want to share, because I really want to share it all but think, maybe I shouldn’t. I enjoy and follow most of these ladies, so I know I’ll learn a lot from ya’ll!

    Girl…THANK YOU!! I am only a few weeks in to the amazing IG decor community, and if I am being honest…your account (before I got to know it) intimidated me! But guess what…you are the sweetest, realest (is that a word 🤔), authentic YOU…and I appreciate that! I loved this series, and am grateful I put the intimidation aside because you have SO much to offer…besides just an amazing feed and a billion followers. Thanks to you I am going to DO ME…and ALWAYS be kind. Love it!!

    Literally just finished reading your 5 part series on growing your instagram and I loved it. So much insight and so much truth that I will apply. My favorite part on all of this was the Do you + Be kind. So true how we can forget and get sucked in to this world that we end up making not being ourselves anymore.
    Loved this, thanks for taking the time!
