Top 4 Tips and Things I Learnt from Posting Everyday on Instagram

Hi Babes! How is your day going? Great I hope. A while ago, I took on a personal challenge and posted everyday on Instagram for about 27 days or thereabout. The results were mind blowing. I was shook y'all. I decided to do a post to share some of the things I found out with you :) 1. There is an untapped amount of traffic waiting for influencers it's crazy. 2. Instagram is a two way road. Once you settle down and figure out the ever changing  algorithms and get it right your audience will grow without you having to buy followers or likes.

Life Lately: Abuja 6

Quote of the Day: Ask and it will be give unto you, see and you will find.-Matthew 7:7.  Hi guys welcome to my blog! I'm so excited about today's post (I don't know why). The previous week was a roller coaster filled amazing moments for me. I'm thankful to God that I keep learning and growing. I fell very ill after the heavy storm that caught up with us during our NYSC biometrics registration, but thank God I am much better. On Tuesday, I wasn't feeling up to it, but o knew I had to attend the Fashion Focus event held at the British Council courtesy of the Lagos Fashion and Design Week. I got there at 2:26pm because the event was slated to start at 2:30 pm but ended up starting at 3:39 pm; talk about african time. Shortly after, the organisers apologised and it kicked off. Let me state that I learnt a lot from Mrs Omoyemi Akerele aka StyleHouseFiles and I am grateful I didn't miss George Okoro's talk. They both inspire me, a lot!
