⋯Kaylee Pratt⋯ (kayleebonraylee) Hey all! I started on bookstagram at the beginning of the year and love the sense of positive community surrounding books! Everyone is so kind and supportive.

I know it's "not about followers"... but it is about followers. I love comments on posts so that discussions can happen, plus I have a goal to build a following so that I can (hopefully, maybe) be a rep one day for cool book boxes and whatnot :) Maybe a pipe dream, but I'd love advice!

I reached about 350 followers, then I hit a rut. Hard. Ow. No matter what I do, I can't pass 350. Any advice?

P.S. I consider my photos high quality, I've recently been sticking to a theme, and I use 20-30 hashtags per post.

P.P.S... shameless plug, you can find me @kayraereader :)

Milena (love_tea78) Post regularly. Interact with other bookstagrammers by liking and commenting on their posts. Participate in tags. These things helped me to get over my 300 followers rut. I still don't have many subscribers (573) but I finally started seeing some growth.

Also, I followed you @loveofmuse :-)

I've seen these! How exactly do they work? I've given shoutouts to others but don't know how to get shoutouts for myself!

I do post almost every day so I've got that down! I think interaction is my fatal flaw... I feel like I hardly have any time! But interaction will definitely be my focus going forward :)

I also found out that I LOVE monthly challenges, and I've found so many cool people through their tags!

Yes, interaction takes a lot of time! I feel like I spend way too much of it on Instagram instead of reading!
