How I use Instagram as a writer (Part 1)
I’ve been on Instagram now for four or five years and the platform has changed massively over that time. We have an algorithm, our engagement and reach is a lot less than it used to be and there is the introduction of adverts into our feed.
Yet - despite all of that I still think Instagram is a great place to be as a writer or an author.
Instagram has encouraged me to call myself a writer, it has driven me to ‘up my writing game’, it has created opportunities, given me confidence to try new things (like YouTube and Patreon) and introduced me to a wonderfully supportive community.
So despite sometimes feeling incredibly frustrated by the app there are still many advantages. In the following video I talk more about the way I use it to push myself as a writer and to grow an engaged community.
