Blue Sky Traveler on Instagram
My first Instagram account @blueskytraveler started in 2014 when I took my “40-year gap year” to Europe with my first DSLR camera. This private account was a way to share my adventures with family and friends. As my photography skills developed and I embraced social media, I made my account public in 2015. Since then, I have developed several other accounts to share my passion for travel and other interests with like-minded Instagrammers. Follow along with over 750,000 Instagram friends!

Growing your Instagram Account
As many of you know, I created an online course in 2015 documenting my methods on how I grew my Instagram accounts. I sold my share in the company in early 2017. I still receive dozens of requests every week asking for Instagram advise.
I intend to keep the BlueSkyTraveler.com website travel focused, but you can sign up here to receive any updates that I provide on Growing your Instagram Account on a separate website.
Instagram has changed quite a bit in the last few years, however there are a few things that remain the same which will help you grow. Remember, Instagram is about connecting communities of people, so what do you expect out of a community member:
- Be consistent with your posting. Show up for your audience and they will show up for you.
- Be consistent with your content. Keep on theme and become an authority for your audience that they can trust.
- Focus on quality of both your images and your messaging. Level up your account by both improving your photo skills and writing meaningful content.
