Since choosing to continue on my DA from BCM112, I have felt somewhat happier with how my project is going. Thankfully by continuing, it has given me an advantage as I already know my audience/ the content to post/ when is the best time to post and how to interact.
From the end of BCM112 (left) to BCM114 (right) now, there has been very little change to who my audience is.
The content that I like to post on Fluffy’s account is kind of relaxed, meaning that not a lot of effort goes into it. I could be inside and look out the window and see Fluffy asleep, go take a picture of him and later that night upload it. Simple as that. #FIST! Most of the accounts that I follow do the same, it brings a sense of your Rabbits personality to the account. From these pictures it has become my accounts aesthetic. The brown garden bed, grass and Fluffy (who is usually relaxing)
My goal for BCM114 was to add on to what I had already created, with content that I personally enjoy and with what I feel as though my audience would too.
So far I have managed to achieve 2 out of 3 of my initial goals. Recipes and accessories.
Accessories – I went to Kmart and bought 4 bowties in the pet section. To be able to take a picture I had to put Fluffy on a small table in front of a hedge in our garden because as soon as I but him back on the grass he would run away. Considering he is blind he did not enjoy this and kept jumping forward to me hoping i’d catch him. Meaning, i’ve only managed to take pictures of him in 1 of the 4 bowties.
Despite this being not what I normally post, the picture had good engagement with his followers.
Still to come are the other 3 bowties, a hat i’ve ordered off eBay that wont be here until October and anything else that I manage to find.
Recipes – This section I have only managed to complete 1 recipe but am thinking about giving some of the recipes I have saved a try when I have a spare moment. Again I was pretty happy with the response to my 1st attempt.
Fluffy’s blog has also been doing well. End of BCM112 is on the left and a current update for BCM114 is on the right. The other week I went through the blog and made any changes/updates that needed to happen. More still needs to be posted on here but the response to Fluffy’s blog is so good.
Thankfully due to BCM112, my project is moving along smoothly. By prototyping last semester it has allowed for me to be more confident in my DA and what I post. The Rabbit community on Instagram is very loving and caring towards the people/Rabbits they follow, that is why by wanting to add the 3 other aspects (recipes, accessories and exploring) I knew that they would be accepted well!
