On October 11, 2015, Dakota Uprising flew past 1000 Instagram followers.
When I started featuring your amazing Black Hills and Badlands adventuring images back in July, I didn’t realize how quickly the following would grow and it’s turned into a fun, little online community. I regularly see the same awesome folks posting awesome photo after awesome photo. I know who you are. I love the people that tag #dakotauprising on their most captivating images, and I love the people that send nice comments with a little bit of history about a location or an insight into something most people probably don’t know. I love that people from across the country have fallen in love with the Black Hills and follow the Dakota Uprising account to stay connected. So much love for you. One thousand of you. Wow.
Let’s break that 1000 down and admire how awesome you all are:
- 333 new followers a month
- 71 new followers a week
- 10 new followers a day
- 3 new followers per image post
- 1,031 #dakotauprising tagged photos (amazing!)
- 33 @dakotauprising tagged photos
- 2 creative collaborations for photoshoots with Laurel and Rachel
(visit their own websites to see their own unique creativity)
Kudos to all of you for exploring the hills, being at the right place, at the right moment, with the vision to catch that perfect photo in a frame. This account wouldn’t be around without you so keep taking and tagging your #dakotauprising photos for a chance to be featured.
