Summer Instagram Challenge: 40 photos edition

Instagram is a very helpful and important tool for growing your blog and connecting with your audience.

Or you can just do this challenge just for fun!!

But we all know how difficult it can be to come up with content ideas that are fun and make your audience want to truly engage.

Which is why I put together this Summer Instagram challenge for this summer!

The challenge is simple- throughout the 3 main months of summer (June, July, and August) post all 40 of these picture ideas!

By following this Summer Instagram challenge throughout the summer you would have enough content for 2-3 posts a week and then add an additional 2-3 that are specific to your brand or blog. Remember that consistency is key for growing your Instagram account.
