A Call for Help!

Do you absolutely LOVE and thrive on Instagram, the way so many other people do? Do you have hundreds or even thousands of photos on your cell phone?  Do you find yourself sharing photos on Instagram every (or nearly every) day? Yes you say?  Then please...HELP!!!!!!!!



I have a dirty little secret.  Well, actually it's not dirty at all but I bet that got your attention!  Husband and I both got rid of our cell phones five years ago.  We recently just jumped back on the bandwagon and got cell phones and service again, but do you realize how much technology has changed in the past five years?? Smart phones were just starting to catch on back then, so we've NEVER had one!  And now there's the most amazing apps ever, and Instagram!

Lots of bloggers are using it and having a blast with it, and I want to jump on that bandwagon too...but it may just be going a little too fast for me to catch it!!  I'm running...I swear I am!  For starters, I'm finding that I keep forgetting I have a cell phone that actually takes pics!  So I either reach for my super awesome camera, or just don't snap anything. And besides that...unless you have babies in the house, WHAT IN THE WORLD do you actually take that many pictures of???  I'm sure that taking tons of pics on my phone is just a habit I'll eventually fall back into.  But once I'm starting to build up tons of colorful and interesting photos, I have to figure out how to use Instagram!

So, my cry for help....do you use Instagram?  Can you give me some tips, pointers, free editing app suggestions??  I would love to hear perspectives from people who use it strictly for personal use, AND from other bloggers who tie it in with their blogs.  Hopefully, I'll be a pro in no time, and start flaunting my mad skillz!

So help?!?  And P.S. don't be too surprised if you see another post like this one day for Twitter...but one social media app at a time :)

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Hi Amy! I have a windows phone so I use the photo editing feature on my windows phone and then upload to Instagram. I don't upload all the time mostly when we are out somewhere special. You can follow me here http://instagram.com/donnanuce
but there's not a lot of excitement since my daughter is married off and we are empty nesters now. I do follow Sandy Allnock, Jennifer McGuire, Katrina Kennedy (she takes gorgeous photos) and family members. Also http://instagram.com/harlowandsage
because I love weimeraners! Have a great day!
