How To Be Instagram Famous

It seems like Instagram is the new it thing. And frankly, I'm obsessed with it.
But how do some of these people get so many likes and followers?
How do they become Instagram Famous
AKA Instafamous?

Well I have a theory...

1. #Hashtag it

It seems like almost every photo has about 4,000 hashtags. This helps your photos to be found more easily and it really junks up the screen. #Winning

2. Take Lots of Selfies. 

Really get up in your face with it. Maybe put a lil boob in there. That will help. 

3. Be a famous person already.

Those seem to be real popular.

4. Food pics.

People love to look at food. They are always hungry.

5. Dogs
Sorry not cats.

6. Post a One Direction Photo

7. Lastly and most importantly, be a teenage girl, making a duck face. 

Instant success.

  2. Or get your photo taken with a celeb, eating cake, in a low cut shirt! It will go viral for sure ;)

  5. Crap... I really gotta work on my duck face. Wait, I'm not a teenage girl. I guess I'll just never be InstaFamous!

  6. Did you use that last picture bc it's the girls from PLL?! HAHAHA.

  7. What if you're a 20-something girl making a duck face? I may have a chance for internet fame yet! (At least I'm able to blame the alcohol on this poor facial expression decision, right?!)

  8. Over-hashtagging is SO annoying!

  9. If you can combine all of the above then you become the Instagram Goddess.

  10. People love to look at food. They are always hungry- No truer words were ever spoken! I think that's why Pinterest is so popular. True story

  11. Ahhh my brother went through a phase... literally would hashtag EVERYTHING. He said he knew the "top 15 most searched hashtags" and was putting it on every picture. Can't stand it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. hahahahahaha I've read so many rants about Insta and how people hate food photos - but my food photos are some of my most liked photos, so then what?

    Anyway, the million hashtags people do drive me bonkers. And why do people care to have a bunch of Instagram followers anyway? I rather know who it is liking my photos, makes it more fun I think

  13. hahaha! I love it. Especially #3.

  14. So, that cake looks disgusting but so pretty at the same time. I'm sad that cats don't get the same play as dogs. But I do have boobs so there's that.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gahh! The duck face!! I hate the duck face! I'll risk being an Instagram loser (instaloser) to avoid the duck face. Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh man, so true! All of it! I love looking at celebrity instagram feeds and reading all of the comments from their fans. Some of them are so ridiculous.

    Also, dogs for the win! Cats are icky. :)

  17. This is dead on. I say ok to grumpy cat though. That never gets old (to me).

    What is with the girls on the "popular page" with 4563453 likes and the same amount of followers. WHO ARE THEY?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. ha! my instagram photos are 90% of my dogs, 9% of food and about 1% other. i took a selfie the other day and felt soooo self-conscious after!

  19. Bahahahahaha!!! This is so funny and TRUE!! Some of these people have like a half a million followers, it's crazy!! "Sorry no cats" HILARIOUS!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. you totally went into my brain and took my idea for blogging next week!!!!

    so true.......

    ReplyDelete
  21. If I see more than four or five hashtags, I have a seizure.

    ReplyDelete
  22. or start a fake celeb page and post a boob shot! Your followers will go up fo'sho!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think what you mean by #2 is get a boob job, buy a shirt that has such a deep V that you can see most of your new boobs, then post it on Instagram. ;)

    I get so puzzled by some of these hashtags. Especially #instagram. Um, WHAT? DUH YOU'RE USING INSTAGRAM! How is that a reasonable hashtag?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i am dumbfounded by hashtags!! I will use the #ootd or #ootn or #catstagram/ cats of instagram but that's it!! I'm ok with not being Instagram famous...i had to privatize my account because one of my current (13yr old) students added me!! and while I am well over 21, the tattoo and drinking pics aren't exactly student appropriate....the current student is the sister of one of my former graduated student I am close to ...but still!!

  25. Bahahaha. I'm totally a hashtagger on Instagram - GUILTY.

    But this post made me LOL big time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ha ha, yes! I'm off to take selfies of me with duck lips and boobs hanging out all while eating cake :D then hashtagging the hell out of it.

    ReplyDelete
