My Love Affair with Instagram
I’m sure the rest of the world is way ahead of me (as usual) when it comes to instagrams, but I’m still trying to keep up. At first, I thought it was kind of annoying…not because people were sharing random pictures from their kid in a cute dress to their dog taking a nap, but more because I thought all of the different washes and borders were cool and I had no clue where or how they were doing it. I felt so left out. Then, I finally figured out that I could simply download the free app to my phone…yea I know, it took me WAYYYY to look to figure this out. What can I say. I started fooling around with it, editing old pictures I had, taking new ones and before I knew it, I had a whole stack of cool “new” old pictures.
Then yesterday something happened. A friend of mine “liked” one of my instagram pictures. Whaaa?? How did she “like” it? Where did she see it? You can imagine my continued surprise…and embarrassment, when I realized that many of my friends were “following” me on instagram. I had no clue you could do this…so yea…all of those self-portraits I took to get the one good one (where I dont look any less weird than normal, but it was the best I could do)….yea my “followers” must have seen all of those and thought “OMGGGG why is she taking so many pictures of herself?” Like I think when I see a friend’s photo album on Facebook entitled “me”.
I totally felt like “Big Brother” was watching me, and although I should have known this was how it works, of course, as usual, I was missing a piece of key information. How embarrassing. But, anyways, now that I know what is going on with all of this, feel free to jump on the bandwagon and see all the silly pics I thought no one but me could see…my username is mackadoo3314
