    I don’t know where to go when you put “gear up” I can’t find anything like what you are describing. Can you screenshot a picture. I’ve clicked on everything but can’t find a place to link everything. TIA

      Nevermind, I think I have it! LOL

      • I’m glad you found it, Crista. I probably should have said, “the gear, up in the top right-hand corner.”

    Thank you so much for this article! I’m new to Instagram, so your step-by-step instructions were a life saver. I really appreciate the help with hashtags, as they were what I was most nervous about. I will be following soon!

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment, Nicole! I have a more in-depth post on hashtags in the works so keep an eye out. I look forward to having you along for the ride. πŸ™‚


  4. Hi, Pam! πŸ™‚
    I’ve been following your blog for quite some time now and wanted to reach out to say THANK YOU for all of the wonderful information you share! πŸ™‚ I finally got the courage to launch my blog this week, and after reading your tips above I finally started my Instagram account last night. I woke up to 14 new followers this morning! πŸ˜€
    Thanks again for all of your tips! I can’t wait to see what happens on this journey!

    PS: I’d love for you to check out my Instagram @fallingspringcrochet!

    Thanks a lot for sharing this article with us. This encouraged me to start my own crochet business on instagram.

  7. Thank you for sharing this information. My daughters kept telling me “you need to get on Instagram”. But, as I am not the most tech-savvy person in my part of my world, I had no idea how to start; I wasn’t totally sure I “needed” to. I thought I had set-up an Instagram account, but when I logged in all I could see was my account info, and the list of “people” I had started following. I could not figure out how to make a post. I hope it’s ok that I printed a copy of this step-by-step, so that I can refer to it as I go back and try to set-up “for real” this time. I would never share it as my own, or try to sell it. I just need to see it next to me when I am working on getting my Instagram set-up. If I am going to share your information I would do so by sharing this post (in total) and telling all where/who I got it from. (If you need me to I can shred the printout once I am done with it.)

    • Hi Sheri’L – yes, that’s absolutely fine. I hope you found the list helpful and have started finding your way around Instagram a little better!
