    Wow, the first blog I ever actually read through entirely. I can just feel your energy through your words. I found myself giggling when you wrote “lol” and smiling other times. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. You are goals! Haha.

    I’ve had a personal Instagram account for a few years, but recently started one dedicated to my journey of mountain biking in all 50 states before I turn 30! I don’t come from a family with a lot of money, and I’m a teen (so there’s obviously not a ton of cash flow there either 😛 ). It is a big goal of mine to gain enough followers that brands would want to collab with me, but I don’t see that happening very soon. I’ve started a blog & debated starting a YouTube channel, but not much is happening! Any suggestions?

      Hey Cammie,
      That’s an amazing goal! I’d focus on liking/following/interacting with other accounts in your niche at the beginning! Find your community online and participate!! Also, make sure your images are eye-catching and try to add value in your captions…remember to make it about your audience not you! What can you offer them? Maybe great biking or travel tips? And of course, use related hashtags wisely!
      Good luck!!
