Share on Instagram

Instagram won’t allow you to share the entire article with the community. But if you’re creative enough, you may be able to capture something related to your article and create a nice image out of it. Then, you can post a new image to your profile which may interest people into reading the entire article. Don’t forget to include a link to your website when editing Instagram profile info.

Join forums

Although social networks have become a much more popular way of participating in discussions, forums are still to be found all over the Internet. Find forums where people gather to discuss things of your interest. There you’ll be able to join discussions and hopefully, add a link or two when appropriate. Don’t forget to fill in details about yourself and your site in the signature.
