I was posting a new photo to Instagram today and I realised it was number 501. Wow. That’s a lot of photos of shoes, bags, food, tea, my hair, my nails … yes, you name it, I’ve Instagram-ed it.
At first I was seduced by the way you could turn a pretty dodgy iPhone photo into something vaguely acceptable but now Instagram has become one of my favourite social media networks. It’s somewhere to hang out that is not only visually appealing but also not as “cluttered”.
I love seeing everyone’s day through photos … as it happens. And I love “hearting” stuff.
To celebrate my 500th Instagram photo, I thought I’d share some of my faves.
Warning: geek alert
I use the Instagram app for my iPhone and iPad. On my desktop, I’ve got InstaDesk installed, which makes tracking, “hearting” and commenting on everyone’s photos so much easier. And on my blog I have the Instapress plug-in that publishes my latest Instagram uploads straight to my blog.
If you’re on Instagram too, you can follow me here. And leave a comment below if I’m not following you so I can return the favour! What do you love about Instagram?
