In my last two blog posts, I've written about general tips for using Instagram for your writing and about coming up with your own ideas for what to post. Today’s blog is simply a list of ideas for social media content that I’ve created for myself that I’m sharing with you. Some are questions to ask your followers, some are topics to start you off on writing an article.

If you're well and truly stuck and have nothing to post, try following some of your favorite authors. They might have content that will inspire you. I've recently searched for "authors on Instagram that writers need to follow" or something like that. I came up with a good list of people to follow to help me build my list of people I follow. They're people I wouldn't have found on my own. Sometimes Google is your friend.
Best of luck on your Instagram journey. Get out there and make some noise!
