    Why am I not getting many followers, likes or engagement on my Instagram posts?
    And I'm pretty sure it's not just the algorithm either. I wonder if most people really do just not like me plain and simple even though they would happily follow others without any problems and speed their already found luck up even more. Granted I generally post wholesome content such as nature pictures, e.g. flowers, woodlands, streams, etc, but I wonder if it's this somewhat lack of an edge that people are bored by even though I want to stay true to myself at all times as a rule. And while I wouldn't consider myself strikingly beautiful, I wouldn't say that I'm bad looking either when I post pictures of myself too. The other thing as well is hashtags. When I look up popular hashtags, especially ones such as #nature #photography #scenery and so on, i.e. ones that I typically apply to my posts, it's a surprise to see thousands of these kind of posts with these exact same hashtags and with far more likes and engagement than I ever receive. That's not to say that I don't earn any followers, likes and feedback at all but it just seems to happen with very slow progress. In short, I do more giving than receiving, appreciating what others have to express to the world while getting very little appreciation myself. This is my Instagram name @serendipitoushappenings if anyone wants to give it a look over and point out if I'm going wrong anywhere or whether there is anything that might need working on. Your feedback is welcomed and appreciated.

    If you are not engaging then you need to review your content and placements.
    Sounds like it's just getting lost in the noise.
    What's your USP ?
