Hello Monday...and hello 7 YEAR ITCH
I have to tell you all that I resisted Instagram for some time
-- yet another piece of social media to keep track of ---
to post to...to feed...to mind...to cultivate.
After all...I have been blogging for SEVEN YEARS.
That's a whole lotta me out there.
Maybe too much...but still I BLOG, 2x a week like taking my vitamins.
It makes me feel good to be able to do it...
I feel good knowing there is some diary of my ups and downs and the business ins and outs...and I appreciate all of you that read me.
Still, sometimes I see social media like those pets that you really want in fiction, but don't want to care for long term....
or like those houseplants that I know would liven thongs up around here,
but I would have to water...all the time, forever....and ever...
So it was with resignation that I added Instagram to the whole feed thing...facebook, BLOG, twitter...
all of which by the way cross fertilize and post to each other....
But I #havetoconfess that #iheartinstagram...
And hello Monday this is a great way to get a quick visual image of what's going on...you can click the Instagram logo -- the boxy little camera logo --
So hello Monday...and hello Instagram. I like how you can search for # hashtags and how the images stay there as a permanent record --
just like I appreciate the BLOG for it's staying power and visual/textual documentation of my days...
Are you on there?
