Happy Sunday all! This is week 4 of my Instagram experiment. Check out the previous posts if you haven’t already:
My two most popular posts were fitness related ones. I did another transformation picture as they always get me lots of engagement and it did really well! As did the photo after my 10k.

I’ve had lots of followers this past week, but sadly even more unfollowers! I did have about 5622 at one point, then they all dropped me! I’ve downloaded an app called ‘followers’ and it lets you see who has followed and unfollowed. It might not be a surprise that most of the unfollowers are crap accounts that you would expect to unfollow. When cool bong samples gave a follow, I didn’t expect them to be around for long. Shockingly, they blocked me too!
HOW I DID WITH GOALS:
Repeat last weeks goal 1 around following 20 new accounts.
Didn’t quite find 20 again, but did find some.
Don’t forget to comment rather than mindlessly liking photos!
This was hard, I found myself really demotivated this week.
Do a transformation picture to see if it can be as popular as my previous one.
Did it and it worked out great!
Well, I think we can safely say that I am putting in effort to growing my Instagram but not getting very much in return. I am going to continue to try and comment on my feed and find new accounts to follow, but I’m going to stop documenting it. I’m still getting lots of people unfollow and it just seems Instagram is a bit crap now. Crap accounts following anyone then unfollowing shortly after and to be honest, I just can’t be bothered.
I’m happy with my engagement increasing, even if my followers don’t. So that’s what I’ll be working on.
