An acquaintance suggested that I needed to start an Instagram account. She’s there and loves it. She thinks that I could drive traffic to my blog from Instagram + she likes my photos and wants to see them all in one place.
Isn’t that sweet?
So last night, as a test run, I snapped some photos around here. I figure that these are the sort of photos that I’d probably put on Instagram, if I was there.
Which I’m not sure that I’m going to be.
As I was taking these pics I remembered a woman from years ago who had a unique blog, the name of which I don’t remember, in which she posted one photo per day of her kitchen table OR of what she saw while sitting at her kitchen table.
Her kitchen counter. Her backyard. Her sky.
And suddenly I was giggling to myself because what I’d snapped for my Instagram test run was exactly what this blogger, who I hadn’t thought of in years, used to do. Yet here I was doing the same thing, lending credence to: everything old is new again!

1) Are you on, or do you follow people on, Instagram? What do you like about it? What do not like about it? Should I be there?
2) In general, when viewing other people’s photos, what is your favorite kind of photo to see? And why?
