Yay for 1K! | Celebrating 1000 followers on Instagram

1k 1000 followers thank you hard work pays off blog blogging instagram metallic balloons success

Is this going to be a cheesy “work hard pays off” kind of post? Well, in all honesty, yes, a bit. Because I believe that all achievements, no matter how small or big, need to be celebrated in some way! So in this post, I would like to write a few lines about my own little achievement from last week: I reached 1000 followers on Instagram!!! To celebrate, let me share a few of my favourite and/or most liked Instagram posts!

1000. I know, it is just a number. It’s not even that much if you compare it to larger accounts. But for me, this is HUGE! When I rebranded the blog back in November 2017, I had about 330 followers on Instagram, and to be honest, I didn’t really know what I was doing with my account. And for 2018, my goal was to reach 600 followers on Instagram (the proof is here). 600!!

Now, we are only 4 months into 2018 and I not only reached my goal for the YEAR, but I surpassed it by a lot! I never thought that my little hobby would go this far :O I write this blog for fun, mostly, so seeing that a large number of people appreciate my work and share my interests really warms my heart!

I do not mean to brag here, not at all. I just want to emphasize how much this seemed impossible for me to achieve, not because I don’t believe in myself, but because growing a community, whether it’s on Instagram or on WordPress, takes time and dedication! I wasn’t sure I would be able to put that much energy and effort, but I did, and I am so proud of myself. So if you ever doubt yourself and your blog, remember my story!

So yes, hard work does pay off. And I wanted to celebrate that achievement, so I went out and bought balloons for myself! On a Thursday morning. While being sick with the flu. Heck yes! There’s nothing that can stand in the way of a girl who wants to celebrate her hard work, am I right?

So here are a few pictures of my little celebratory photoshoot!
