Recently, BabyGaga brought you an exclusive interview with "Instagram Mom" Danielle Bevens. Bevens has been heating up the Instagram scene with her hilarious letter board quips and creative photography which usually features two very important gentlemen in her life - her two young sons.
While chatting with her, we immediately realized that something that is very near and dear to her heart is the Instagram community including her followers. Along with her supportive partner, Jeremy, Bevens credits the friends that she has met and the warm, encouraging chats she has had with fellow Instagrammers as a source of strength in her life.
We were curious about what her answer would be about the sweetest moment or favorite story that she has about connecting with the Instagram community. Her response did not disappoint!
"Oh my gosh, there’s too many!" Bevens said. "The support you receive from that community is amazing! Any time I’m down or questioning my decisions or actions as a mother they are right there reminding me we’re all going through this together. We just need to reach out for help."
It's a breath of fresh air to know that the Instagram community can rally in positive ways in a time where "keyboard warriors" and "cyberbullying" can be prevalent on social media. We are glad to see that this Insta Mom is making a change for the better and helping to establish a firm online group that truly cares for one another.
Bevens told us that she has gotten recognized by some of her Instagram followers while out and about in home in Canada with her family. She said that it's a good thing because her followers usually will strike up a conversation with her.
"It’s usually more of an ice breaker though," Bevens said. "People are more inclined to introduce themselves and then add in that they follow us."
If you have a goal of gaining some Insta fame for yourself, why not take some tips from someone who is the one mom to watch? We asked her about her posting habits in order to gain and maintain a loyal following.
"I try to post at least once a day but I like to think there are no rules for that sort of thing," Bevens said, adding that she usually posts when her boys are still sleeping or have just gone to bed. "If you love what you post, it’s got a clear message and meaning then people will come."
Sounds like a pretty perfect plan to us! Thanks, Danielle! Don't forget to swing by her Instagram and say hi!
