3 Tips To Elevate Your Instagram To Social Influencer Levels

In the age of technology, where A-list celebrities got their start online it may seem hard to do the same when comparing yourself to them and their fourteen million fans, but there are a few tips and tricks to help the average social media lover evaluate their platforms for a more professional and aesthetically pleasing look much like their favorite internet celebrities.

1. Find your special niche

When setting out to elevate you Instagram it's very important, to begin with, defining who your audience is and why they follow you. This does not include friends or family, but actually, the people who enjoy your posts. These followers enjoy what you bring to the table and your story for a reason. You and everyone else bring a certain special theme or quality to all your posts, and this can be seen as a niche, which is good because people who enjoy your niche will follow you. The most popular niches include lifestyle, fashion, and beauty. While these are popular, it is better to take one broad niche and make it a little more specific to stand out and gain a following from the uniqueness of your content that can not be found anywhere else, but your specific account.

2. Inspiration eliminates boring posts

While there is nothing wrong with posting a head-on selfie every once and then, it can get boring and bland if that is all your Instagram has become. Showing variety is easy just by adding different angles, incorporation full body shots, and even a location change, but the problem is you've come used to taking the same selfie from the same angle in the same location that you're not sure what else is out there, but have no fear there are billions of photos for you to gather inspiration from on the same app, and many more like Pinterest, and Tumblr. These apps have become online databases for beautiful photos and inspiration material like photoshoots, outfits, and even recipes for food blogs. The one rule when using inspiration is, do not copy and give credit where credit is due. Many beauty gurus and influencers have been "canceled" these past months due to them copying other's makeup looks and not giving credit to the original source so take that as a warning.

3. It is all about visual aesthetics

The best way to not only stand out but to also create an aesthetic for yourself that others do not have is having a consistent and recognizable preset/filter. This is not only to make all your posts look more cohesive as if your Instagram is one big story, but it will also drive attention to your account due to the distinct, and aesthetically pleasing aesthetic. If editing photos and creating your own filter/preset is not your thing there are many sold on Etsy or your favorite Instagram influencer is already selling theirs.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
