After sharing my recent post about upgrading your Instagram game, I have a new fun announcement!
For the month of July, I will host an Instagram challenge! It will be called #HalfYearMarkGoal.
The idea behind it is that we’ll hit the middle of 2017 during July, and many of us still have goals, resolutions, or bucket list items that we want to get done! Since summertime is a great time to try out these goals, I figured this challenge could open up to include just about everyone I know to participate.
Here’s some insight on how the challenge will work. I want as many people to participate as possible and I wanted to give you a few weeks of preparation to pick out your goal. Much excite!
How Will This Work?
I’ll provide a prompt for each day of July on Instagram and you respond to each prompt with an Instagram post! The prompts will basically let you brag about whatever you’re working on. You can participate as much or as little as you’d like. Just put the hashtag #HalfYearMarkGoal on each post so I and everyone else on the challenge can see your posts. Bonus points if you comment or like each other’s stuff!
So who are some ways you can participate? Here are examples of goals or projects that you could use for the prompt:
- Learning a new language
- Visiting a new city
- Starting a family
- Adopting a new pet
- Learning to sing or play an instrument
- Bullet journaling
This is just what I could come up with off the top of my head. I’m sure you could contribute something unique and fun!
What Should You Post?
You can go about this any way that works best for you. Start by sharing this post or my Instagram post on your social media to let everyone know that you’ll participate. Accountability is key for achieving your goals!
Next, just answer the prompt based on your preference. One idea is to share a picture that reflects the prompt, then explain more in the caption area below. Or, you can have a generic photo (like this one that shares the prompt) and explain everything in the caption area. For that, you can simply regram or reshare what I post. Some even provide a written response to the prompt in their photo. You could even do a mixture of these ideas with the new swipe feature on Instagram.
Whatever best reflects your goal or project is the name of the game!
I Want In!
To get a headcount before we begin, just comment below if you’re joining, or comment on my Instagram challenge post if you want in. Also, reshare or regram the image with all the prompts to tell your followers that you will participate. Please spread the word!
