How to Make Friends on Social Media

When we started our first renovation I decided to start an instagram account, because none of my personal friends were interested in me spamming my personal account with renovation pictures. Well even though I’m in the millennial generation I didn’t know any of the “how to grow on Instagram secrets”. I literally posted random renovation shots whenever and didn't even know how to use a hashtag. I remember when my account grew to 100 followers I was floored, like what? There’s other people on here that want to see an Airstream Renovation?! Then I stumbled across @themayesteam account and they were having an IG course with all the juicy secrets of IG. I asked Zach if he thought I should sign up and he said sure why not? I had just transitioned from being a salon owner & hairdresser to being a stay at home mom. I took their course and was blown away. Mainly because I began to realize just how large the tiny living community is! I didn’t realize how many people actually travel around full time in RVs'/buses etc. If you are looking for a good landing space on how to grow I definitely recommend their course. Something I took away from their class was how IG is such a good virtual community. I actually thought it was kind of silly that people had “virtual friends”, but once I got over that and started reaching out to fellow tiny living community members I realized just how amazing it was! I’ll be honest though, it was intimidating reaching out to others. But, as time went on it got easier and easier. I recommend starting with similar accounts to yours and just reach out & start a conversation! Our goal for this blog is to share others in this community and tips & tricks they’ve learned! In this post I’m going to share some of our IG friends that we love following to see their journey. I hope you enjoy them! Along with guest posts we are going to have a monthly “shout out” post of checking out other tiny home / travel families. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a post! Our first guest post will be next week from @rvfixerupper!

First, I’ll showcase @themayesteam

Gabriel & Debbie have 4 cute kids and live on their amazing converted school bus. As you read before they have an IG course, go check out their website & IG for more information! Click here ->


They were one of the first Airstream traveling families we came across & I fell in love with their family! Their feed is all about tiny living, family time, & adventures. I love how active they are with their crew and it gave me hope seeing how successful they are as a full-time traveling family with 4 kids! Not to mention they pick the coolest spots to boondock! Go check out their new boondocking challenge here ->


I’m so thankful we met this cute little family & will hopefully meet in person soon considering they live in the state we are from, Louisiana. They are about to move into a cute renovated Airstream mammoth, a beastly 34 footer. ->


These guys have renovated a motorhome, Airstream, and just bought a huge 5th wheel! I love their style & cute kiddos! They too are a traveling family. Check out Mae’s blog here ->


I love how bright & airy this adorable mommas RV is! They live in SoCal with their adorable kids! ->
