We are just a few days away from Halloween. Therefore, we decided to do something a bit different this time. Today we are going to talk about an Instagram account that’s slightly odd, yet amazing. In fact, today we are going to talk about an Instagram pumpkin influencer.

So, what does she do? Well, the short answer is – she uploads pumpkin related photos.

The Account

First of all, let’s talk about the account. The person behind this account is a girl called Maggie Michalczyk. Maggie is a dietitian who runs a blog called Once Upon a Pumpkin.

Currently, she has an Instagram account with the same name and over 2000 posts. Of course, most of them are pumpkin related. However, there’s more. In fact, much much more, Maggie has also written a pumpkin cookbook, and she even quit her corporate job to become a pumpkin influencer.

Finally, her dog, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, is named Pumpkin.

The Reason

According to an interview conducted by vox, this is what Maggie had to say about why she became an Instagram pumpkin influencer:

“The first time I can really remember being like, “pumpkin is my thing,” was in high school or college, in one of those get-to-know-you icebreakers. I think the question was “What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever eaten?” I was like, “Well, my name is Maggie and my favourite thing that I ever ate was pumpkin.” I forgot what the thing was, exactly. It may have been pumpkin ice cream — just something really standard at the time. But then for the whole rest of the year, everyone just remembered that I liked pumpkin-whatever-it-was, and they remembered me that way.

And then as the first wave of major pumpkin products were hitting Trader Joe’s, I just remember being so excited to go there and then post about all that stuff on Instagram. I think pumpkin yogurts were really big when the first pumpkin craze started happening and it was like, “Let’s put pumpkin in everything!””

Finally, let’s talk about followers. Currently, Once Upon A Pumpkin has 26.7k followers. However, the number of people who follow this account continues to grow day by day. Of course, there’s still a long way to go until she gets to grow more, but people already support her in all her decisions.
