I have been on Instagram since the beginning of 2011, just a few months after it was launched. I like to capture old signs and type hidden away where most people don’t look. Most of my photos are of old type that has texture. Type you can touch. I created a tag, #typewithtexture, for those photos. See my #typewithtexture page for more information! Other personal tags of mine that see regular additions are #liljeberg_bicycles and #cl_firehydrantsigns.
About my follower count
During the first few months almost all my posts ended up on the then called Popular page. This got me quite a lot of new followers. Then, somehow, in October of 2011 I was featured on the Suggested Users list that new Instagramers saw when they first registered an account on Instagram. My follower count skyrocketed! In August 2012 it peaked at 100.510 followers! Crazy! Not long after that Instagram made some changes and I was no longer on the Suggested Users list. After that I’ve had a steady loss of followers, which of course is understandable. How many can be genuinely interested in rusty type?
