When you put love and effort into something you’re passionate about, it’s good to claim credit for it. Remember to put your username on your pictures; this way, you’ll find new friends when your photos are posted somewhere else too!
It sometimes happens to everyone that even when they take many photos, none of them is to their liking. Well, an editing app like VSCO can fix that problem and save you a good amount of time and energy! Also, using hashtags makes it easier for likeminded people to find your posts, so make good use of them and use words that represent your bookstagram the best! Some examples are #booklover, #currentlyreading, and #timetoread
If your purpose is communicating with others who love books and bookish stuff, you need to write captions that make your followers want to comment and talk with you. One way of doing this is by asking questions about what they’re reading at the moment or what their favorite bookish things are! A good caption can start fun conversations that lead to great friendships!
Now that your bookstagram is good and running, join weekly or monthly challenges and grow some competitive spirit on your page! Besides, tagging friends in your challenges bring you together as a community too.
There are so many cool things you can do once you have some followers. You get to host reading marathons (readathon!) and read with a bunch of different people, creating a book club and discussing books and stories, buddy read books with a friend you’ve found online, and do a lot more fun activities! Once you’ve joined this fantastic community, it stays exciting if you look for events and contests!
We’ve just created a Bookstagram Kit that can help a bunch in the process of making your own bookstagram page! It consists of various cute story templates that give a bookish and colorful vibe to your page! You can get this kit from here!
